I Was Taken Out Of Context



Today is a historic day for you, the readers (usually forced) of this website. Your leader has been quoted by CNN.COM
Today we are one step closer to that Nobel Prize. And by we, I mean, me. I was just being polite.
This is what was written.

Matthew Bailey, a parishioner in the Franktown United Methodist Church in Virginia, and the genuis behind MattBaileyForthe NobelPeacePrize, believes that the meaning of the ritual is what matters.

"If people are willing to go to the trouble of giving their own Communion, then it is quite probably 'real' for them," he says. While Bailey chooses to remain at his face-to-face church, he believes any person "faithfully attending an online church service, is being more proactive, and thus probably more attentive, than many longtime churchgoers."

This is what I said.


"People who have gone to church for years often lose sight of why, beyond its routine. Someone new to Christianity, that is faithfully attending an online church service, is being more proactive, and thus probably more attentive, than many longtime churchgoers."

Jeesh...

There is also a quote from the guy that started this whole discussion (for this site). Shore native and author of SimChurch, Douglas Estes. And the only reason I got to talk to CNN.
