I have to agree wholeheartedly here. I find myself having this discussion all the time because people think that they are much closer than they are. Underlying philosophical views are very very different.

(By the way. JennyMominRI you gave a fabulous explaination of the underlying philosophy of kashrut in the "Who won't settle for less than legal" thread. Something many people don't understand.)

I am an active member at three different synagogues two in Chicago and one in Orlando. All three are very welcoming. Rabbi Dan Wolpe, Rabbi at the Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation (the closest synagogue to WDW - www.SOJC-Orlando.org) is one of the best I have ever met. I highly recommend him and SOJC for those looking in Orlando.

Just my family's story.....

We live just south of Boston and two years ago , with the catholic priest sex scandal my oldest niece ( 8 yo then ) came home from ccd ( catholic sunday school) telling us how gays are evil and shouldn't get married ,which we now can here anyways...... my sister and two nieces live with me and have since they were born we didn't want them in that church anymore but my sister still wanted to have the kids go to some sort of church class. I looked into all the church's in our area and we found a Congregational Church that is part of the U.C.C. , United Church of Christ, and we were welcomed with open arms . This was the same group of churches that made the commercial that the networks would not carry. It had the bouncers guarding a red velvet rope in front of church and they were turning away inter racial couples , handicapped , and gay people. The message was our church doesn't turn away anyone. I like this church because it gives guidance it doesn't tell you HOW to believe in God just in MANY ways that you can. They
believe god made all of his children, and how we treat each other is up to us.

this may not be right for you but it gives you another option , In case your interested
Here is the web site for Asheville - http://www.uccasheville.org/



Good Luck

About two years ago I had a second coming out when I finally admitted - first to myself and then to others - that I am basically an atheist. I'd like to believe in a god, but I don't and never have.

My partner, hisselfness is an atheist and has been his whole life. So here we are, the Jew and the atheist, 19 happy years later. It all works for some reason. Let's face it, there's never an argument about Christmas...

Geez, gay, a Jew and an atheist, now there's enough to get some folks clutching their chests ...

Boston 5602,

Lisa and I have been attending the UCC Congregational Church in Asheville for the past several weeks now and just love it!!!!!

There are so many couples that look like us and they are extremely welcoming. We have even convinced several of our friends to come with us.

The Pastor of this church, Rev. Joe Hoffman just took a REALLY big stand for the rights of gay people to marry. He got up during his sermon on February 19th and told the congregation that he would no longer be officiating at weddings in the church until he could sign the official paperwork for gay couples as well. People are still welcome to use the church for weddings, but another minister has to be present to sign the paperwork. The entire congregation was on its feel applauding after he finished speaking. It was amazing to see such support from a church congregation.

Linda

I know what you mean, gppnj. Telling people that you are an atheist is indeed a type of second coming out and one that meets with a lot of disapproval. Been there, done that.

Another vote for the UCC. I grew up in this denomination and am proud of their outreach. Check out www.stillspeaking.org. Good luck.
