Re: Come one come all
For lack of a better term, he came from a white trash family

For precision the term should be "po white trash". Maybe you should look for a WASP?

I pity your boyfriend.

Re: po white folks
Oh, I have no problem with the term "po white trash" , it's been part of my lexicon for as long as I can remember. I do have a problem with reformers.

Re: po white folks
You come across as a reformer and rescuer.

Re: po white folks
Yeah but from the reform in moderation side of the family.

From the "I know the church moves to its calendar but Daddy needs an heir and a spare and times a ticking" side of the protestant reform movement; from the "We need a Bible that doesn't say the Pope is the antichrist" side.

Re: po white folks
That is the history of the founding of the CoE, (Church of England). Henry VIII needed an heir. His wife hadn't provided one, just a female child Mary. One of his mistresses was pregnant but a bastard could not inherit the throne so he needed a annulment and marriage before the kid came along. He had petitioned the Pope pointing out that the current wife had been his brothers wife first and so the marriage should never have been sanctioned by the prior Pope in the first place but ecclesiastical annulments move slowly, particularly when the current wife was the aunt of Charles V the Holy Roman Emperor who had already sacked Rome once and taken the Pope prisoner but was now supporting the Pope.

Re: And the editor of the year award goes to...
Only the most severely limited sophomores would use the phrase "a political correctness Nazi" but I'll admit that seeing it always is worth a laugh.

Yup, "politically correct" is still funny.
Sorry, I don't look down on reformers and rescuers but they do scare the hell outta me.

Re: How do these ideas co-exist?
No, just wondering if you'll acknowledge that people aren't ever really black-or-white.

Of course that depends on time and place.
