Or Raif.

Ok, I can agree with the smell bit about Raif... but how do you know how Raif feels, Jerm?
If the answer to that is something that could get you arrested... just don't tell me, ok?

"The" church.

See, it's shiz like this that caused the Protestant Reformation.

I've met some Protestant ministers. They have wives and kids. I've also yet to see the kind of sheer opulence found in Roman Catholic cathedrals in a Protestant house of worship. Oh, yes, they do have some fine architecture with more-than-bare-minimum styling, some quite nice in fact. But baby. There's just no contest. There is no Protestant pontiff, no equivalent to the Vatican. The entire point of the Protestant reformation was a revolt against a church that had gotten overbearing, creating layers of opaque bureaucracy, an excessive taste for pomp and circumstance and finery, and a total failure to recognize the needs of the common person while happily promising eternal Heaven for the rich in exchange for favors. (Hmm...sound familiar? Martin Luther was lucky he didn't find himself nailed to a post, huh?)

And, case in example, there's been a recent interest in the homelessness situation in Hawaii. Now, in Hawaii we have EVERY RELIGION UNDER THE SUN.

Two large churches have been in the news for stepping into the breach to attempt to host emergency shelters. They are Kawaihao and Central Union. (they are, it is notable, also the oldest churches in Hawaii. I've visited both, as several of my best friends attend them. Their age and physical size give them resources most smaller churches could not bring to bear.)

Neither is Catholic, in fact, they are both United Church of Christ, a Protestant denomination. Maybe they're just camera hogs...
