Deform me not.

Already evolved, TK. Homosexuality has been around since the beginning of time. Acceptance is cultural, and plastic.

Rick Ballard

"It is luxurious because it's only widely accepted in wealthy societies."

Kim,

I might agree if "widely accepted" pertained to the oligarchy which had accepted Malthusian idiocy to the extent it was in the process of demographic suicide when 'acceptance' occurred.

maryrose

If I was sanctimonious I apologize
Class envy no
I think the Pope needs to be given the benefit of a doubt
I am sorry those that are not catholic are getting such a negative impression
Gus
I thought about not responding to you at all
But then thought the more Christian thing to do was to give you another
I seem to get into trouble when I dare to disagree with people
I won't make that mistake again

Beasts of England

I'll never buy into the power argument. It's clearly meant to deflect away from the predatory nature of male homos. And with that, I'll cease commenting on this particular construct.

maryrose, I value your contribution, as I do those with whom you are currently at odds.

I am confident that the Pope’s visit will settle at a level of significance that will allow us to concentrate together on whatever soon will be seen as more telling issues.

Jane

Well I'm a little Poped out. Thank goodness I'm busy being pissed off at the homophobes in the last thread.

Threadkiller

We are on this thread too, Jane.

Extraneus

Sorry, I don't think (s)he did. Nothing to do with faith.

lyle

I confess: I'm a homophonephobe. Words that sound alike but have different meanings make me uneasy. Oh well, to ur is human, right?

narciso

Turns out I was too optimistic

henry

Deja vu all over again Walker pushing reform of civil service. Simple things like you have to show up to get paid, doing drugs can get you fired immediately, etc. AFSCME is trying to get the band back together and circulating recall petitions again.

Mmmmm. Beer.

Curious Minds

Wait? Does maryrose support pedophilia as long as it's a catholic priest doing the molestation?

Argentine opposition criticizes leading candidate's decision to skip presidential debate

Scioli said late Wednesday that he would not participate in the debate unless there was a law regulating it. Scioli is leading in the polls ahead of the Oct. 25 election.

When Christ at a symbolic moment was establishing His great society, He chose for its corner-stone neither the brilliant Paul nor the mystic John, but a shuffler, a snob, a coward—in a word, a man. And upon this rock He has built His Church, and the gates of Hell have not prevailed against it. All the empires and the kingdoms have failed, because of this inherent and continual weakness, that they were founded by strong men and upon strong men. But this one thing, the historic Christian Church, was founded on a weak man, and for that reason it is indestructible. For no chain is stronger than its weakest link.

G.K. Chesterton

The Church has and will survive in spite of this papacy. Leave if you must but you'll be leaving the greatest gift God has ever given us Catholics, the Body and Blood of Christ.

Jack is Back!

nws lurker,

I agree. No Pope should be political but since Peter they all have been. That is fact and history.

But some here think that Benedict wasn't political and was different on certain issues than Francis. Wrong.

Do I have to pull up the opinions of JPII to confirm their positions on immigration and capitalism?

All I am asking is to cool the rhethoric reagardin my churches leader since he represents my God on earth. He may be fallible like we all are on issues outside the spiritiuality of the churches teachings and canonical law but he is infallible when it comes to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jane

I seem to get into trouble when I dare to disagree with people

Maryrose,

I tried to warn you about this yesterday. Your nastiness about Brady (which you have tried to revise) pissed me off to the point where I couldn't post. That goes with the territory. I get that mad about a few issues - gays is another one.

So first of all, remember that you give as good as you get. So the "poor me" thing won't work, but more importantly, it happens to all of us. So take a deep breath, go play candy crush for a while and come back when you no longer feel unappreciated and misunderstood. And remember, anyone who has been here as long as you have has felt exactly the same way.

It goes with the territory.

Jack is Back!

rocco,

Bravo. Did you ever read Dr. Scott Hahn's "The Lamb's Supper". Says it all. +

new lurker

JIB, You certainly can have the Pope as your God on earth, but I still think he has so many good things "going" for him, he should leave the politics alone. It is offensive to me, as a non-catholic, to have him tell me to bring in all the immigrants and support climate change. Who is he to tell me, a non-catholic, what to believe and do.

Buckeye

Nobody is going to convince me that a guy who likes to bugger litlle boys is anything other than a twisted little queer.

Janet S.

Tom Cotton & Rand Paul voting 'no' means that there was something else about it...not just the PP funding.

Beasts of England

Oops! Sorry kim!

Just grabbed some bottled water at DG and the guy in front of me in line had on a shirt that read: 'World's Okayest Husband'! lol

Beasts of England

Homophobes? No such thing. We should never entertain the language of the left, either. Nobody walks by a gay and screams 'Eeek!!!' Let's give that carp a rest.

Janet S.

I seem to get into trouble when I dare to disagree with people
I won't make that mistake again

We don't all have to agree. Disagreeing on some things seems normal. It is good to have to hone our thoughts....at least for me.

I find posting on homosexual issues is about the hardest for me....the love the sinner, but hate the sin idea.

Beasts of England

So it's no coincidence that I just got a fundraising email from the DNC to combat climate change?

Jack is Back!

What do we call all those public school teachers who bugger their students whether same sex or not?

henry

Are you sure it wasn't from the RNC?

Beasts of England

no = a

Beasts of England

It turned out to be a joint email, henry! :)

Jack is Back!

Why are you getting DNC emails? Did you sign up for them? Is this the first time the DNC has ever emailed pushing climate change/ LOL.

The great thing about this visit is that now the right has there on version of "blame Bush".

Buckeye

"What do we call all those public school teachers who bugger their students whether same sex or not?"

Well, criminals for starts.

We're doomed: EU chief fears union will COLLAPSE over migrant crisis

And well they should.

What culture in history has ever allowed a mass invasion without at least some level of resistance?

Jack is Back!

Buckeye,

You miss my point but I agree with your answer.

Jack is Back!

Ex,

Are you kidding? You're living in one.

Beasts of England

Of course I signed up, JiB. I'm always interested in what they're doing and feeling. And it's the first AGW email I can remember from them in a very long time.

henry

JiB, perhaps buckeye's point was the action and label are independent from the employer. Perhaps also the extent the employer is sanctioned (say in private industry) should be independent of the type of employer (government, religious, non profit, evil capitalists).

Beasts of England

Has it been noted that the three most conservative Catholic justices (Scalia, Alito and Thomas) all skipped the joint session of Congress?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Barry and Pope Francis; bringing people together since 2008.
Sheesh.
I don't even drink wine and I think I'll chug a jug.

Getting back to the topic of the thtead, effendi el hassan rhymes like imam rauf, and that strike a sour note.

Rick Ballard

Will Pope Francis make any remarks to the Saudi member of the UNHRC tomorrow concerning the upcoming beheading and crucifixion of one of BOzo's Arab Spring chickens?

Any bets?

narciso

Yep, you're soaking in it.

Buckeye

henry & JiB

I had not even thought about any of this little boy buggering in terms of whether it was priests in the church or an Afghan police chief or high school wrestling coach.

In my mind, if you are that kind of predator, you are twisted.

Pretty black and white.

Rocco

I have JIB, he's been a great inspiration to me.

Jane

It seems to me the UN will be one hell of a target tomorrow.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I don't think I disagree with a single word of Brian Wesbury's column;
How TARP created Trump.
Read it.

Janet S.

One thing I notice is how little Jesus is mentioned in all the coverage & speeches & analyzing.

I hear about dialogue, people coming together, yada, yada, yada...
but The One who is Christianity...is hardly mentioned.
That is odd to me.

Extraneus

You're living in one.

True. Not as many Mohammedans, though. We really are blessed.

Yes Jane!

Buckeye you are right. They are twisted, more then that but right now twisted is as strong as I will get. I have a brother that I was going to take for a/walk in the woods. Except his victims passed the lie detector.

Deb...If you have time, please watch this YouTube from Pave The Way Foundation, it contains documented proof that Pius saved the lives of over 850,000 Jews.

Outstanding article, Ig.

In South Carolina, Trump pledged to the crowd that he would throw Dodd/Frank straight in the dumpster.

Extraneus

Good link, Ig.

Lurker Susie

I hope everyone realizes that I do not dislike Jesuits. Many wonderful Jesuit Priests have been apart of my daily life since birth. Some have died but others still play a role in my life. For instance when I got married I ask my Jesuit to marry me, I ended up with 20 on the altar. My poor future husband had to deal with their fighting in the sacristy. Anyways thanks for letting me post and I will continue going to church and to practice my faith. I am a sinner and I ask for forgiveness everyday.

sbw

Timely course on historians I am listening to now.

Christians were the Muslims of Ancient Rome - unwilling to assimilate, playing by their own rules, promising an other-worldly future, overrunning the empire.

How quickly we forget.

Lurker Susie

Asked one, not ask my. Ugh

henry

Susie, you are forgiven, but you can't escape posting more often.

narciso

Well there are some parallels, however christians were in the empire, Paul did do a fair bit of traveling, I'll admit

Jane

I went to a Jesuit law school. I must admit I knew no more about the Jesuits the day I graduated than the day I entered.

At the time I thought that was to their credit.

Jane

Some really great singers at this mass.

Beasts of England

I agree with henry - please continue and post frequently Lurker Susie!

narciso

I would add that qe Infiniti has more than a little to do with this 'insurgency' in the land.

sbw

Paul did do a fair bit of traveling

As a Roman citizen, he could.

narciso

Its coordination, the profs will take Any opportunity to spread mind arson.

Janet S.

a friend on FB asked - Where's the environmental impact statement for letting in all the refugees?

It takes years to build anything nowadays...so where's all the studies & permits & statements for this invasion?

narciso

I was using shorthand, no the parallel was to the original saracen influx

Beasts of England

The Thursday Night Football pre game show featured a video clip of the Pope. And, no, I'm not making this up.

henry

It's cool Janet. They come from trolley riding cultures.

henry

Who's playing?

Janet S.

Hopefully the Syrian "refugees" won't be flown here...think of the damage to planet earth! Yikes!
At least those little Guatemalan & Honduran kids walk here. (although they do tend to carry plastic water bottles)

sbw

I think we should help the Syrians be able to stay home.

We could build a fence.

Jack is Back!

This is my last post on the Pope. Tim Stanley expalins it better than I can.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/the-pope/11889128/Conservatives-will-hate-the-Popes-speech-to-Congress.html

Beasts, now you know how I must feel the same way you did when you left because of comments on the South. What goes around comes around.

Beasts of England

Giants v. Redskins. I think one of the teams has to win, whether they deserve it or not.

henry

Oh, I guess I root for non PC name. Sorry JamesD.

Beasts of England

I left because of the two SC rulings, JiB. And, for the record, I posted a photo of Francis washing the feet of the kids in prison (of all creeds) after his investiture. I thought it was wonderful and said so. With actions like those, he inspires me.

James D.

Beasts, they can tie.

GUS

Jane, I agree those nasty HOMOPHOBES are not at your level.

Beasts of England

NFL still does ties? I guess that's the outcome that I'll be pulling for. :)

James D.

I'm sure JiB will remember the exciting prime time 7-7 Giants-Redskins tie a few years back. The one where Gus Frerotte knocked himself out of the game by running head first into a wall...

Sue

It strikes me that if the Pope had stuck to scripture, we wouldn't be having this argument.

Jack is Back!

Deb,

Your are once again short on fact in re Pius Xii. He saved thousands with his "quiet diplomacy" which was even praised by the State of Israeil whne he passed in 1958. Give it some research more than your anti-papacy comments.

Porchlight

I have no fantasy guys in this game, so I'm actually going to watch it. I always root against the Giants because of the Vikings NFC debacle in 2001.

Janet S.

I went to a Jesuit law school. I must admit I knew no more about the Jesuits the day I graduated than the day I entered.

At the time I thought that was to their credit.

See, I don't get that at all (not you, but them). How can any true Christian or Christian institution, not share the Gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ?

This video says it all...
Interview With An Atheist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLRFKxWcVFo

or this one of Penn Jillette - Gift of a Bible - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6md638smQd8

"How much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize?"
"How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible & NOT tell them that?"
"If a truck was gonna kill you & you didn't believe in the truck - there is a point that I would tackle you- & this is more important than that."

Penn Jillette is not a believer either - like the guy in the atheist video - but he understands Christianity.

Jane on Ipad

Janet,

That wasn't their point, I'm pretty sure.

Beasts of England

Welp, the Giants got a safety. A tie will be very difficult now.

narciso

Yes that was the narrative handed to hochhuth by the siviets, resurrected by loftus and cornwell, pacepa explained the how.

James D.

OK, that's a good start for the Giants.

Porchlight

I get a little annoyed when atheists (like the guy in that video) tell Christians how to be Christians and then complain again when Christians do just that. (You should hear my coworkers rant about the nice gentle people handing out New Testaments on campus.)

But he and Jillette make good points.

Janet S.

To me they are just stating what Christianity is from an academic standpoint. They understand basic Christianity.
Unlike the WaPo's 'On Faith' writer, Sally Quinn or retired Bishop Gene Robinson or President Obama....those 3 don't even understand Christianity.

Frau Gehirnerschütterung

JiB - I am not a Catholic. I received instruction and was married in a German monastery. I lived in Germany where the Catholics were not a minority and were not as conservative as they are here in the US. You probably know that situation in Belgium.

I listed my three (3) favorite popes--strictly from personalities-- and did *not* look at their positions on world matters. For me John XXIII was earthy; John Paul II was dynamic, athletic and charismatic; and Benedikt was the musician and author of inspiring books on Catholic faith.

Pope Francis even acknowledged he was building on the opinions and writings of Pope Benedikt. I see the continuation of thought.

Porchlight

True. Jillette sounds genuinely moved. I love that video.

maryrose

My last post on the Pope
I lost my glasses to magnify but I want to thank all for their constructive criticism
Jane
It is not poor me or being misunderstood
It is the lack of respect for my request to stop the name calling In many cases it was ignored
I think after 10 years I deserved better
Sorry if I offended you about Brady
As I watched the Vespers service and Special Report I was nervous about what other comments people might make
I don't want to have my experience altered by by others judgments
I will come back and post after the papal visit concludes

narciso

Yes they are embarassinglu ignorant, Obama knows perhaps that one stanza of leviticus

Ah where would we be without feed kaplan's stand-up act?

Miss Marple 2

Back from the auction. About the only good stuff was the stuff I took up there last week, so spent 31.00 on a few boxes with some sellable stuff and came home.

Here's some non-Pope news:

http://sputniknews.com/politics/20150924/1027456504.html#ixzz3mhmBObTm

Now, this could be propaganda, which we will be able to ascertain soon enough. If it IS that, then this tells us how putin is presenting himself.

Putin wants everyone to know he would use non-violent efforts to stop ISIS, but Obama won't support it.

So his only alternative is to blow them to smithereens.

And who would have thought that Putin could present himself as the defender of Western Civilization?

clarice

I would. He has a lot to fear from Islamists and there's always been a mysterious pro-Christian aspect to his personality--remember his first meeting with Bush, when he showed him his crucifix?

Beasts of England

And, JiB, I do support the South, but not reflexively. I defend its love of tradition, hatred of unions, strong reliance on faith, and its focus on the family. I rightfully criticize its flaws, such as the meth epidemic and rampant obesity.

clarice

I grant you, his Christian leanings may be more historico-culltural than religious, but I've always seen that side of him.

Frau Gehirnerschütterung

Moi aussi, Clarice. An interesting facet to the personality.
