Called out

Matthew Gatheringwater wrote this in the comments of High/Low:

Frankly, I don’t see what the high church/low church distinction has to do with the bands. You are trying to emphasize the sacramental nature of Unitarian Universalism? Since when did we start having sacraments again? Oh, I get it: Your religion is Universalism circa 1800. Now, if only you could get some 200-year-old parishoners…

If this is an example of humor, it doesn’t work (and the smiley at the end of the comment doesn’t change matters.) and is quite hostile.

Perhaps you think I don’t get on well with non-Christian Unitarian Universalist ministers, and that I’m apt to snipe at those with whom I have theological differences. You would be incorrect.

I needn’t respond to your questions, but will because you have sincere interests. Just don’t wrap them in sniping.

Now, on the the questions . . . .
