    In a word, unity redefined as the pragmatic tweekig of that which is pleasing to you. Degoding God.

  2. Bill Combs says:

    A very helpful interview for us Baptists who don’t understand much about Presbyterian things. However, the statement about real men using Andoid was totally uncalled for.

  3. Brian Wasicki says:

    I agree with everything that Rick said, and I am in the Metro New York Presbytery. Also, his Android comment is spot on!
