McCain's VP choice a woman -- and a post-denominationalist
When news broke yesterday that Republican presidential candidate John McCain had named little-known Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska as his running mate, religion writers across the country and the curious in the blogosphere scrambled to figure out her denominational affiliation.

The initial confusion surrounding Palin’s denominational identity, therefore, has a simple explanation: She doesn’t have one.

Instead, Palin appears to be part of that rapidly expanding galaxy of “post-denominational” Christianity, where elements of Evangelical and Pentecostal styles of faith and worship fuse into a myriad of unique local combinations, and where old denominational loyalties are essentially dead.

Though post-denominationalists are, by definition, difficult to catalog and index, they’re unquestionably numerous. A 2007 survey conducted by LifeWay found that fully one-third of American Protestants were ...

I'm wondering why, if Sarah Palin is a christian, she is not obeying the biblical order for women. She should be a keeper at home, especially with a smal Down-Syndrome child and a pregnant 17 year old daughter. The Bible clearly points out that she is disqualified from ruling because she is a woman.

No. But then, I don't introduce myself that way either. Guess I'm not a Christian.

To let people know she reads and studies her Holy Bible daily.Look at all of Gods people in the Bible that did what He told them to do. I am sad for our polticians because satan is working on them because of their influence, they have become part of the elite. I pray for them daily to receive Jesus as their personal saviour, amen! Go to www.3bible.com and listen to Dr. Kent Hovind, he is very encouraging in these difficult times of this nation.

Is that the first thing you say when you apply for a job??? She is applying for a position in government, not church office.

Hey, where did you find these links? They are great. I had a big laugh at the 2nd site (what's in a Church name). Now you have me wondering about all the Church names in San Francisco.

You always have good links. Keep up the good work.

THE CHURCH - GOING, GOING, GONE
For two millennia, if you knew a church's name then you knew something about the people inside its doors.
Church names stood for timeless saints and traditions -- from the Church of the Nativity to the Church of the Resurrection. A potluck supper at St. Patrick's would be different than one at Santi Giovanni e Paolo or Our Lady of Guadalupe.
In some flocks, a name might tell a church's location or hint at its origins. The Southern Baptist Convention's directory includes almost every name under the sun -- from Enigma Baptist to Black Jack Baptist, from Hanging Dog Baptist to First Baptist of Disney (Okla.).

I always wondered about the names of Churches. They are popping up all over here too. Let's see, there's New Harvest, Alliance, Community, True Light, Full Life, Love Chapel...Just to name a few. My city is approximately 8sq miles and must have about 500+ Churches of all denominations and yet, the city is one of the most spiritually bankrupt in the nation.

"Finally, there’s a bit of political irony for Catholics. Given Palin’s strong pro-life credentials, it’s likely she will appeal to the most strongly “denominational” Catholics, those most devoted to traditional Catholic identity and teaching. Meanwhile, what one might call “post-denominational Catholics,” meaning those for whom religious branding carries less theological significance, may embrace Palin’s Democratic rival, Delaware Senator Joseph Biden, the lone Roman Catholic on either ticket, because of his progressive stands on social and political matters.

In other words, the denominationalists on the Catholic side will back the post-denominationalist, while the Catholic post-denominationalists will probably pick the candidate who bears the Catholic denominational label.
No wonder it’s all so confusing.

"post denominationalism", the precursor to the one world Church. Where all is one and judgment is nowhere to be found. The new theology, where truth and error co-exist side by side. Sounds Catholic to me.
