This is a classic example of why I hate the church. The Church of England has just lost £40 MILLION in a dodgy real estate deal in New York.

I say "dodgy" because this deal relied totally on being able to evict rent-controlled, war veteran tenants from the buildings, rip them out and convert them to "luxury apartments" at high rents. It is not just the church that has taken a hit - US government-controlled pension funds are up to their eyeballs in this deal.

If you want to hear the Archbishop of Canterbury lecturing every one on the ills of "secular greed," he is all over the internet and TV and has been since he discovered his congregation is shrinking with every dead octogenarian.
Perfect example of the hypocrisy of the christian religion. And for those of you who think "people make the church so if you hate the church you hate the people" - lolololol
WTF is the church doing putting £40 MILLION into this sort of deal and preaching ethics?
Not in this case as I can make fun of the church as a healthy outlet. It feels good actually.
LOL Absolutely. Making fun of church is fun. I just found that when I use such a wording, I tend to feel accordingly, with all the consequences. Yet if I make an effort to word it differently, so do my feelings - and subsequently consequences. Does it make sense?
But for me there is not such a negative connotation to the word. I have recognized it as a feeling and identified it and expressed it in what I consider to be a healthy, non-violent way.
There is nothing good/bad/right/wrong in my emotions and I try to identify them and more importantly - recognize why I feel that way. I usually feel "better" once I get to the root cause of the feeling. Whether I was feeling "good" or "bad." I always like to determine "why?" There is no lingering hatred that has not been acknowledged - this is where the issues come I feel.
That make sense?

Why do so many Americans hate America? And if they hate it so much why don't they just leave?One thing that really bothers me is the way some Americans seem to hate everything about America. I'd just like to ask them: "If you hate everything about the country you live in then why are you...
