    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    Yeah, most of these are crusty old Germans, but they have a number of young conservatives, hence the dilemma.

    I didn't think you guys were officially part of that.
