Jeff Sessions speech interrupted by Methodist, Baptist clergy

From the article:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was only moments into a speech on religious liberty Monday (Oct. 29) before he was interrupted by two ministers who called on him to “repent” for his role in enforcing Trump administration policy.
Sessions was speaking about “The Future of Religious Liberty” at a meeting in Boston hosted by the Boston Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group. But as soon as he began his remarks, a United Methodist minister, the Rev. Will Green of Ballard Vale United Church in Andover, Mass., began reciting Scripture.

1. Yes, but there are more interesting parts to this.

First, at least one of the challengers was black, and was expelled from the venue by police. That's not in your two paragraph excerpt. It's sort of interesting, don't you think?

Also, the scripture cited by that minister was also pertinent, but was not mentioned. In just two more paragraphs, you could have included those very interesting things. You are allowed four paragraphs.

While people can click the link, why not include pertinent information, Guy?

2. Would you prefer that I tell you what is important,

or that I link to an article that I find interesting and trust that you will read it and also find it of interest?

No matter which is your preference, if I feel a need to comment I will do so initially, or in the thread.

My goal here, as you might have guessed, is to show the wide variety of positions held by people of faith.

6. Indeed.

But I give this criticism all of the consideration that it deserves.

8. A religious response would consist of

"You so fine!" 😉💙

4. As I pointed out in another thread, quoting more of what

is at a link will lead more people to become interested and visit the link. By posting just one paragraph, you omitted important information from that story. You can quote up to four paragraphs as an excerpt. It takes no more effort to do that than to copy and paste just one.

That's my suggestion to you.

5. Know what Keebler product I really kinda miss?

Pizzarias. Every now and then, I get a hankering for them, but like bonkers and rascals, they are now but shadows and dust in some aging 90's kid's questionable memory.

I can't even remember what they tasted like. Probably terrible. I mean, if they were good, Keebler probably would have brought them back at some point. I'm probably just overpraising them because they were something I ate as a kid that I can't get anymore.
