I’ve read the Bible; this is not a new problem.
Being Jewish is usually a matter of ethnicity, or race, which one is born as, a Semite, not necessarily faith, whereas a Catholic is a specific religious identity. As for evangelical, last I looked, some surveys classify respondents as evangelical depending on answers to a few basic questions (as Barna), and or what denomination they belong to (which themselves are classified based upon some general and recognized basic defining aspects), but typically they combine born again with evangelical.
In the 2005 Baylor Religion Survey, 33.6% of the US population were categorized as Evangelical Protestant by affiliation, but in choosing to affirm titles among many labels to describe their religious identity, and in which more than one could apply, 47.2% choose Bible-believing, and 28.5% Born again, 17.6% and Theologically Conservative, but only 14.9% chose the specific term Evangelical, and barely 2% say it is the best description.
I am looking for someone who will permit me to identify as an Anarcho-Monarchial Libertarian-Medievalist.
Finally making time today to catch up with some of my pings, like this one. Thanks for that! Amazing to hear the Irish language sung like thatusually it's plaintive ballads. I guess the oldest songs in the mostly-dead ancient languages have a certain je ne sais quoi similaritystaccato rhythm and repetition highly favored. I notice that repetition is also highly favored in contemporary ebonics, chiefly 3- to 5-word phrases repeated over and over at top volume.
Wow, that is stunning! To me, that song has a much clearer tie to what we in this generation think of as traditional Irish folk music. You can almost hear someone sitting by himself on a rocky crag, with no accompaniment but the crashing waves and echoes off the stones. Thank you so much. Are you especially into Irish music, or was that a passing find?
I looked up this one, which is an old favorite of mine. An homogenized version was popularized to some extent back in the late 60s by Joan Baez:
It's the legend of a mythological sea creature, the Great Silkie, creating a baby with an Irish maiden... with a tragic ending.
