The churches and their leaders are morally bankrupt. It's time to stop supporting them financially. When churches don't pay taxes, we are supporting them. Even atheists are supporting them through our tax dollars.
"The next time Congress is looking for an extra couple billion to finance a war, tell them to look no further than an income tax on religious payroll. Better yet, tell them today, and let them know you intend to VOTE accordingly"
"Change cannot possibly happen." So the followers of Jesus, or, rather, the followers-on who told stories about him and started a religion, had no business changing the clear knowledge of everything good and right and holy that came before! /s
LoL sk8ey cat, on “I wonder if the churches will ever be as financially bankrupt as they are morally. (Then all the land they own could be put to better use, for one thing.)”
Enjoyed your video, Loren!
Change means leaving behind old rules that define who one is, what one's purpose in life is, and how one should think and act, even if the thoughts and actions do not fulfill the needs of the individual or the family.
Change? What? No god? No angels? No Jesus? No heaven or hell? No obedience or submission? No morals? No rules? No bible?
Who can a religious person trust if he or she can't trust in the words of the holy or the beliefs of the ancestors?
Change means having to find the difference between right and wrong for oneself. It means there is no god to hear prayers or no Jesus to save. If he or she has no one or thing in which to put one's faith, how is one to know how to act, what to think, how to love, who to hate?
Change means not having dominion over wives and children for men and not having a husband or father to control one's life for women.
Change to what? Chaos? Disorder? Anarchy? Turmoil? A woman cannot possibly allow that to happen; A man cannot permit it.
After all, the bible is holy! God exists and judges! Jesus sacrificed himself for others! Tradition maintains order! Change cannot possibly happen.
Would someone careFor a breath of fresh air?
There ... and I don't even use Tylenol.
There sure are a lot of nekkid emperors still parading around! I wonder if the churches will ever be as financially bankrupt as they are morally. (Then all the land they own could be put to better use, for one thing.)
It is the hypocrisy that amazes me. I guess I am still a naive girl who believes priests and police keep us safe. ye gads! How foolish my thoughts.
Telling the truth, out loud, so others can hear me, is not the bad thing I learned as a child. "If you can't say something nice about someone don't say anything!"
That is just plain bullshit! Another "truism" bites the dust.
Former Archbishop of St. Paul, John Nienstedt, as is the wont of those fun-loving Catholics, metastasized hypocrisy into an art form by a.) spending $800K of the Catholics' cash in the attempt to squelch marriage equality in Minnesota and b.) repeatedly coercing priests into having sex with him. I guess for the Catholics sauce for the goose ain't nothin like sauce for the gander.
