Could the CRC be maneuvered, via our church order and procedural mechanisms, into affirming the LGBTQ agenda?
Fossil fuels are much criticized these days. Rather than lamenting them, I thank my loving Creator for them.

You're saying "white privilege" is undeniably true and exists all over the United States in obvious ways.
I'm saying that's a theory of yours, and it's a bad one.
