What chutzpah for catholicvote.org to present believers in dogma and discrimination as the "victims" here!
@Bertold, I love reading good news!
Here is a video that's been going around regarding Catholics with a secret so shamed by society, and they feel so persecuted, they need great courage to admit it.
Reminds me of the old anti-marriage "Gathering Storm" video from several years ago. There were so many spoofs and responded to that ad, it was difficult to find the original.
That one went over like a lead balloon, too.
Wow! To put it at its mildest, THAT was impressive as HELL, Bertold! Seems like there's at least one christian out there who takes what I would hope the most positive aspects of Jesus' message to heart.Wish there were more of 'em.
In contrast, here's a very different reaction in a highly unusual Christian act of contrition:
A Southern Christian Asks for Forgiveness at a Gay Pride Festival
Thanks for the memories, Daniel!
She got one thing right when she said "My word isn't truth." If she's the future of Christianity, I'd say we've already won. I love that down in the comments some viewer posted for her edification Betty Bowers' explanation of "traditional marriage." That ought to straighten her right out.
Wow Daniel, that just proves that all the Fruit Loops don't come in a box. She claims to have read her Bibble Book but I bet she means that someone told her about all the grody bits that she really wants to believe. Of course, them being super
holy people they would never Lie? That book is so right in every way, you know why, because the book says it is the truth and you are not allowed to disagree.
I hate to say it, but I laughed at this looney-tune person's meltdown.
Maybe she ran out of valium.
Time's article is WAYYYY overdue.
Churches should never have been tax-exempt, and it should have been written into the constitution. They are a business, like any other...that's entertainment. If you buy tickets for a Broadway show or a circus, the tax is included in the overall price.
With honest bookkeeping, small congregations would probably not have to pay anything. Of course mega-churches don't know the meaning of "honest," but I'd love to see them go bankrupt the way Robert Schuller has. They deserve it just for being arrogant,
Time's article is spot on. But, like Loren said, premature. I hope to see the day government lives up to the admonition that Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion by giving them tax exemptions. Unfortunately, I don't think it will be in my lifetime.
On another note, here's a great video courtesy of a reference by Brother Richard. The glaring difference between an adult who learned to hate, and a child who learned love.
Time magazine's article is yeast in the mix of questioning the heavy emphasis on religion in USA. I agree, Loren, it is premature, and it is a seed.
