Well said by Santorum.
He is, of course, referring to the leftist infiltration of the Methodists, Episcopals, Presbies, and other old-line Protestant denominations, who have forsaken the gospel of Jesus Christ for gay marriage, abortion, liberation theology and other heresies.
It's certainly difficult to maintian a spirit of collegiality here, what with all the motes and beams flying around.
Why, one might get the impression that his and apparently your church has no such problems, lol.
I believe I missed this thread at the time the discussion was going on but I got the material into a couple of these threads.
The Main Line was an early rail road (rail line) going out from Philadelphia city center to the more distant suburbs.
The rich people in town ~ merchants, lawyers, factory owners, etc. lived along the main line and they commuted to and fro every day.
They also built their favorite churches out along the main line. You could see them from the rail cars.
The expression "main line" churches applies literally to the churches on the "main line" and their importance to the national consciousness regarding matters of religious thought and action.
To a degree we might find astounding, these churches were involved in their congregents lives. They were also very vocal.
That's not so anymore.
I"m not surprised Santorum, a guy from Western PA would screw up the usage though. He's a Catholic ~
The infiltration by the commies occurred fairly early. There are rich people who neglect they chillun' and leave them to the tender mercies of they nurses from Eastern Europe! Then there were the Red Diaper Babies ~ whose parents were commies.
