Meet the New Pope

Recommended Posts

I don't feel like wading thru inflammatory language and gross inaccuracies, which are the hallmarks of an intellectually lazy contributor.

Suffice to say anything within the realm of Church dogma is always subjct to change. Church doctrine, however, cannot and will not be changed as it was established by Jesus Christ. Only when one has an understanding of that which is dogma and that which is doctrine is one prepared to distinguish between the possible and the impossible, thus arriving at the possibilities.

Matthew 19.14 Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

whatever their intentions are the policies the church pushes don't really help in getting rid of poverty. look at haiti which was full of religious organizations . they needed a strong socialist government with regulations to have prevented such disaster after the earthquake.

is it a coincidence that europe and japan with a higher standard of living are also less religious ? while the church now is mostly influential in more poor places .

Those higher standards of living have more to do with free markets and capitalism than any prevailing religious views.

isn't europe socialist ? many of those poor nations have free markets and capitalism also but they have a weak state with people relying more on religious institutions which don't really do much in taking people out of poverty.

When Japan got hit by a big tsunami, I don't recall them needing a socialist government to figure out how to begin the resuce process.

Yes, in post #109 & #124 you suggest the church should liquidate it's assets for the benefit of the poor. When pontificating - as you do - be sure to practice what you preach!

...God bless the sofa dwellers...

for you, my child

Gee Steve, I don't believe anyone here claims to be the direct conduit to god and therefore the vicar of christ on earth. That is the big difference, the church claims it is better than everyone else, that we need their guidance as intermediary between us and god for salvation, and that they are infallible. So, I believe since they have taken this stance since 325 AD they should model themselves after the very figure (Jesus) they claim to represent. Get it now Steve??? If one claims to be the nexus of moral authority, well, start walking the walk.

The above aside, if this pope really wants to make a difference he will:

1. Make celibacy a choice LIKE IT WAS FOR 1,000 YEARS BEFORE THEY CHANGED IT, in an effort to steal as much land in Europe as possible. They succeeded, time to move on.

2. Allow women to be priests, LIKE IT WAS FOR 200 YEARS BEFORE THE COUNCIL OF NICEA.

3. Defrock all pedophile priests, bishops, and cardinals and then turn them over to local authorities for prosecution.

4. Dissolve the vatican bank and give the bulk of the cash to the poor, also turn over bank managers to police for prosecution in laundering drug money for the past 60 years.

5. Admit they turned a blind eye (and probably worst) during WWII and publicly apologize to the jews for being massive pricks for 1,800 years.

Anything short of that is pure bullshit.

thank you :notworthy:

At this point I actually regret creating this thread. It was at first just information and light hearted posts, but some of you people who claim to be so friendly, loving and open minded really are not very nice. You probably wouldn't make fun of muslims or handicapped people, but some of you have been rather vile to the catholic people here. I apologize for some of my jokes earlier, but I would like to distance myself from the vile remarks like comparing catholics to nazis. Really? Is that necessary?

In another thread I tried to show group support for that Knebby lady who's family was stalked because of her relationship to the band. I thought I was just being nice to her and she called me a name and said to get lost. What is wrong with some of you people?

I was also enjoying posting youtube songs with the Virgil Kane guy and then he gets tossed out. And for what? Virgil was above anybody here posting really cool music stuff. Did he kill somebody or something?

This place is really starting to suck for me. Nice job!

sorry if i have offended you or anyone else - not my intention. i enjoy these types of exchanges. i always try to watch my manners, though some members do ruffle my feathers quite a lot, and i will usually reply to them as they do to me, if need be. :)

It's quite a place isn;t it......

I've been here just over a year and have sometimes felt the way you are feeling once or twice, but it passed. I think you gotta take the good with the bad in terms of discussions around here. It is a place for openess behind alias's and you never know what is going to unfold. It's hard not to take some things that are said around here personally, but that is one of the problems with texting that can lead to a mis-communication.

As far as this thread is concerned, I enjoyed the banter positive or negative, and I was raised Catholic. I am aware of the warts but discussion can only help in hopefully fixing what is wrong especially with regards to pedofile practicing priests......just my 2 cents...cheers Ace

Jesus said many very meaningful and great things. He is the greatest teacher of all time IMO> He is also the son of God IMO> When you create a thread about religion its just going to start trouble and bring out emotions. And not all of us are going to agree. What you post regarding the children is true. But do not condemn an entire religion and its followers over the deciept of a those that used the cloth for evil means. Its probably best to let this thread drift into the archives. We have a new Pope and I wish him the best.

Someone who seems completely "off" is the Ace of Spades character. I'm not saying he's a formerly banned member or anything but there's definitely something peculiar about him. Just check my exchange with him in this thread:

I really don't think anyone is that fucking stupid on purpose unless they are a troll.

And this is precisely the tone you took with me last time - almost word for word - before you got banned, again.
