    I love Cals but dislike the doctrine.

    That wasn't an option so I voted "I like chicken". :smilewinkgrin:

    I have an excellent attitude toward Calvinists.

    I have a pretty good attitude toward non-Cals and old dead chicken.

    I'm Baptist, I can't help it. Same with dead pig and dead cow.

    However, I have developed a divine resistance to egg plant and kraut. But I can fellowship with them over potluck.

    FTR, I don't like Calvinists, I love them. However, I do hate how our posts ever broden the gap betwixt us. From our camp, we use our free will to do so, and from their camp, they were foreordained to do so. :smilewinkgrin:

    And yet, that chicken was predestined to fill my belly, and it didn't have a "say/cluck" in the matter. :D

    But someone may have calvinistic beliefs (so they can tick Option 1), and also have chicken as their favorite food (so they could tick thge last option, too!) :laugh:
