Imitation The Best Form Of Flattery?

They say imitation is the best form of flattery, except when that imitation is out to prey on the unsuspecting.

First let me say that I have been a minister since 2003 of the Universal Life Church. I was ordained through ULC.net, which is an official branch of the ULC headquarters located in Modesto, CA.

However when I first became ordained, it was only luck that I found the right ULC to become ordained under. Unfortunately there are those who do not uphold Kirby Hensley's vision of a free and ethical church. There are some who call themselves the "real" ULC that will try to charge you out the wazoo for ordination and bad mouth ULC.net, and Modesto. 

Recently I was contacted by a representative of a break-away Universal Life Group calling themselves a world headquarters located in Florida. This person has been banned from my blog. I just want to warn others out there who are seeking ordination to be careful. ULC.net is completely safe and if you have any questions, you can always email me.

Biting my tongue till it bleeds.

For most of my adult life I have had cerain rules when it comes to conversation with coworkers. A couple of those rules is to not speak of religion or politics. That becomes difficult when your coworkers constantly talk about those topic. So here's how the conversation went down the other day.

Coworker= C
C1: You know the birth of Christ didn't even happen in December. They say it was likely in the spring. (I'm thinking, if you know this, why celebrate?)

C2: says, you know the holiday replaced another holiday. Some such Satanist holiday. (Big eye roll from me at this point.)

 At this time I was clearing my desk and preparing to leave work to travel to another work site. I needed to take my laptop. However, as much as I like to maintain control, I could not. I rather snipily said, as I walked out the door, that it is called Yule, and it is  Pagan, not satanic. To which point C2 says "are you sure?". I just wanted to laugh in his face and tell him exactly why I was sure. I did not though, because that would just make me their target.

So instead I walked out in a huff, only realizing belatedly that I walked out without my laptop. So i had to do the walk of shame back to the office lol oh well, I needed to say it. Sometimes idiodic comments can't be ignored no matter how much I bite my tongue.


Your comments encourage me to keep writing! Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts with me.

Blessed Be,
