* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Because truth be told, if America actually were to become a Christian  nation, I don’t think the people who advocated for it would be too happy  with the end product. Since Christian is supposed to mean  “little Christ” or “Christ follower,” we actually have a way to offer  some clear cut examples of what a Christian nation would look like–  because all we have to do is look at what Jesus taught, and how Jesus  lived, as a model to pattern national behavior.

Oh look... proof-texting, and oh look, trying to shoehorn a 2000 year old dead guy into a modern political context.  
Every time I hear "Jesus was a Republican!" or "Jesus was a Socialist!" I just giggle.

Spider Man 3 never happened. And Epstein didn't kill himself.

True. However, much of what Jesus is recorded as saying and doing does not match up very well with what those who want the USA to be a Christian nation want that nation to look like.

Truth be told I rather like the sound of a "Christian nation" the way this gentleman describes it. I'm not sure how it would directly affect my fellow US pagans and me personally, but free healthcare* and unconditional love? Count me in.

*Obama is actually on the right track with this. I've got free healthcare through CT, and I love it.

I just love this paragraph.

" each time I hear that phrase I have an inner Princess Bride moment where I say to myself, “you keep using that word, but it doesn’t mean what you think it means.”"
