    I find it sort of ironic the Catholic Church was once viewed as being too liberal and worldly and thus new splinters like Protestants were formed.

    I can't believe he used Christmas to spew this crap. I've lost all respect for the man - not that I had any in the first place. As a gay Catholic I find my faith not affected by this man and continue to do my thing. When/if a priest ever makes an anti gay comment on the pulpit I'll walk out. So far, however, it hasn't happened at any church I've attended.

    Huh? The protestants were considered the liberals at the time...wanting to read the Bible in their own tongue which lead to new interpretations and disregarding the rules of the church...spreading through the Netherland and Germany and England finally leading to less religion over time.

    Being considered different is not the same. Protestants grew in influence out of anger and resentment against the Vatican which was some felt was becoming lax. Celibacy among the clergy, worship to icons, literally buying a path to heaven were some of the reasons why.

    Luther's objections weren't about liberality, more about the corruption (the selling of indulgences), Also, the Reformation was about prying the experience of God out of the hands of the clergy and permitting the common man to read the Bible, which the Catholics had not permitted. This is why the Reformation came close on the heels of Gutenberg's movable type.


    And when it's all boiled down, Lutheranism is just Catholicism with half the kneeling and twice the guilt.

    Yes a former Nazi who is the head of a organization that covered one of the biggest gay molestation rings in history is saying that being gay is non-moral and goes against God...

    I hate organized religion

    and yes, I am Roman Catholic myself icon_biggrin.gif

    Why get exited over this.The Catholic Church has always opposed homosexual acts in the Catechism.I sympathize with some of the views here but I think some gay guys think the gay mafia has gotten so powerful that every organization. Is just gonna roll over.As a Catholic let me tell ya ..Rome aint like the Episcopalians.Ryan

    Never happened to me either, but my sister claims that a Church my mom and her were attending in Thornhill, Ontario, was forcing a petition during mass one day. It was to oppose same sex marriage. My mom and my sister were appalled and left during mass. My mom has been going to St. Michael's Cathedral downtown Toronto ever since.

    Yes, in the Twenty-First Century, people still ascribe power and influence to a tiny, wizened man in a dress and a crown who sits on a golden throne.

    Because of the wonderful things he does.

    ever notice how they kind of look like wizards from lord of the rings, or harry potter. its the hat i think, it makes them think they have actual power.

    interesting, my physic sources for 2013 have predicted this pope will secretly die (i think it was June or July) in a chamber somewhere in the vatican, the cardinals will not find him right away or for a few days, they try to cover up or explain his mysterious passing, a new pope is then crowned by the end of 2013


    isnt this wild!, you heard it here first
