It's patently clear to me that you're JEALOUS of Papa's high academic qualifications - 2 doctorates in the sciences and a master's degree in sociology.

You're stunned to know about his dual doctorates and master's degree, right?

You thought he was like you - a semi-literate, jobless, 24/7 online clown, right?

What're your academic qualifications?

You come across as an ill-informed and illogical moron in most of your posts.

Go away.

We are nothing if not deep. Bring it on.
Part of my argument would imply that aid from the outside supports the welfare of those who might also be parishioners. Therefore the church wouldnt have the total obligation to support their folk. So I didnt mean the churches themselves per se. But I could see how you might not interpret my post as such. It was mainly off the cuff and sarcastic, if not bombastic.
What you have said is NOT applicable to the vast majority of Churches and I would seriously doubt that it is applicable to any church. I have NEVER been to a church which receives outside aid in order to function.

YOU talk too much BS. Aid to the poor is far different from financing churches. YOU are an ASS.

Thank you.

At present, I'm a shadow of my former academic self - those performances at Cathedral and at IIT were top notch.

I am for known reasons sinking in mind and body at present and am simply putting on a brave face. I know my end is near.

Let's see if I survive this ordeal and get back into the academic mood to pursue the doctorate (like you) preferably in the US. I was always interested in furthering my studies after IIT at MIT, UC at Berkeley or Caltech. Many of my friends studied there. Tina went to Cornell. IIT is not the place for doc level research.

It's very difficult for me to get normal at this stage of immense damage.

Let's see how things go.

I'm very proud of you and wish you the very best in life.

I cannot help you any more.
I hope you never consider going into teaching or anything communications-related.

If you promise not to "help me anymore," I will be forever in your debt, mon.

Good for you. But I am sure they exist. Probably mission churches.

HughBe--- please identify the questions that I have asked that have GREATLY upset YOU (as was manifested by your mad dog rage)
My guess is that it is the last one or number 4.
1.What is tithing?
2.Who should collect tithes?
3.Is it rabbis or LEVITICAL priests?
4.Suppose tithe means a tenth, do you think that collecting a tenth and renaming it changes the fact that you are collecting money fraudulently?
Must go. later
what are you talking about? How does that link in to any of the previous discussion that I had participated in?

Jamaica: fighting HIV stigma in church

Christian Aid partner UTCWI are providing training for clergy and faith leaders like Reverend Henry, allowing them to both challenge and change the church's attitude to HIV from within.....

...In Jamaica, high levels of homophobia and ignorance about HIV mean that stigma and discrimination continue to hinder prevention and treatment.

Jamaican society is deeply religious and many Christian denominations exist in the majority Protestant congregations. In spite of their number and influence, the church-going population and church policy itself hasn't responded as well as it could to increasing numbers of people affected by HIV and AIDS.

Go away.
I see that i struck a chord, your kind always sticks together, is that why you are always calling eachother brothers?
Is your over achievement a sign of something else lacking in your life? probably so.
I would hypothesize that you are an over eater, when you dont have frank in your mouth you compensate with food.
Were you molested? Is that why you are a bitter homosexual?
I dont have to post my achievements here because i owe you nothing, and i am not here to spout off, because i know it doesnt matter how many letters are at the end of your name, they are meaningless because i know people with super high iq's who spend time analyzing the best route to go to the gas station. And quite frankly they sound like morons, you would never know what they "achieved" in college.
That being said i am not knocking education, but it now is just a money pit for the banks to lend you thousands of dollars to graduate and go to mcdonalds university.
