Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonderandhome.com

    “Let’s do things like X.”
    “Okay, we’ll do things like X.”
    “Let’s do things like X.”
    “Okay, we’ll do things like X.”
    “Let’s do things like Y.”
    “But we don’t do things like Y. We do things like X.”
    “Why are you splitting away from how we do things?”Report

    Don’t know anything about Protestant sectarian sectarianism… but this thread from Lyman Stone was interesting.

    I object to the characterization that I am insinuating.I am not insinuating.I'm saying it outright:The progressives leading the charge at the UMC are enacting a fundamentally racist policy change. https://t.co/fIzz02iAfV— Lyman Expand the House Stone, AKA 石來民 (@lymanstoneky) January 4, 2020

    He comments also on dynamics in the Catholic church, and it had a certain amount of cross-over explanatory power too.Report
