Latitudinarian

LATITUDINARIAN, n. In theology, a miscreant who does his thinking at home instead of putting it out. He is regarded by the priesthood and the clergy with the same aversion that barber feels for the man who shaves himself.

2010 Update: A follower of the doctrine that such matters as church membership, leadership and doctrine are less consequential than to be an Episcopalian of prominent standing.

Latitudinarian: a word that sideswipes you.

Happy Easter Doug and All!

Rabbit rabbit Douglas.

I'm broad, so I'm a latitudinarian. (had to look this one up.)

Lila said...

Rabbit, rabbit! This begs the question, what is a longitudinarian?

tsduff said...

Rabbit rabbit and happy day of April Fools.

I thought a latitudinarian had something to do with one who studies those lines on my globe.

TLP said...

That Lila. Although that is a good question ya little begger.

Nessa said...

Rabbit, Rabbit. Ok, now I can speak.

Doug, I think this is an April Fool's prank. Is that a real word? There's way too many letters in it. Only an Episcopalian could afford a word that long.

TLP: Did you say you are A broad?

Nessa said...

Oh and i think we need to do a Peep intervention, Doug. Such prejudice should not be tolerated.

Hi Quilly. :)

Jim said...

Rabbit, rabbit!
Happy April Fools day too!

And 'Oh Lord, I am so thankful that I am a Latitudinarian of the older generation and not like one of these Latitudinarians sinning in the 2010's.'

Sorry I'm late, I had to finish up with 'The Price is Right' TV program with it's April Fools Models strutting their (I have no name for it) stuff before I could peek in over here.

Sounds like a horizontal person, too me. Rabbit, rabbit!

Rabbit, rabbit

LATITUDINARIAN, n I'll bite, or should I say drink, April Fool's day or not. Tea Party

Karen said...

I'm a little teapot,
Short and stout,
Here is my handle,
Here is my spout,
When I get all steamed up,
Hear me shout,
Just tip me over and pour me out!

TLP said...

You caught me Nessa.

pia said...

Rabbit Rabbit, Happy April Fools Day and I'm speechless or wordless or...

quilly said...

LATITUDINARIAN, n. fat Sadducees and pharisees?

Hi, Nessa. I think a Peeps intervention is in order -- intervening with their sales.

sauerkraut said...

rabbit and rabbit and all that.

yanno, in the world of Catholics, if ya don't give they can send you out into the street. is that done with episcopalian world, too?

Lila: think Wilt Chamberlain.

Latitudinarian:

Henry the 8th's entourage or
or Jimmy Buffet, who seems to be in charge of latitude issues.

Doug said...

Happy Easter, Indie, to you and yours.

TLP, not so much but ok. I thought you were frisbetarian.

Lila, neither you nor I will benefit from the answer. Let's say someone who eats segmented fruit.

Terry, you might be right. I had to look this word up, myself.

TLP, yep, that Lila!

I'm with you, Nessa. A peep is a whole civilization.

Jim, that was very good. The prayer of the Pharisee.

Or a cat, Actonbell.

Cheers, Thom.

Excellent advice, Karen.

TLP, latitudinarians are, on the whole, easy to catch.

Happy April Fools, Pia. Is this a Jewish holiday?

Quilly, let's look at this- Peeps versus a gold vault.

Beats me, S'kraut. I'm neither.

Changes in latitudinarianism, changes in attitudinarianism, Coop. Come Monday, it'll be alright.
