Hard for me to relate to that type of illogic.
Around the parts where I was raised, most of us regarded priests the same as any other mere mortal men, they just wore distinguishable collars, attesting to the specific job held within an institution, no more perfect than any other mortal men, with no different expectations in behavior of as well.
But never was it insinuated, that they should have some sort of special "right" to abuse anyone else either...and in fact actually, maybe we expected them to behave a little BETTER, than the bigger majority of the non-clerical types.
I am sure the victims expected them to behave better than non clerics. Thus the logic, the kids thought their actions must have been moral. Testimonies of victims show they could not fathom the priests doing so much wrong. This false expectation is the problem.
Thank you for pointing that out.
Sorry you are unable to relate.

Yes please, could you be more briefly succinct, so as I do not have waste any extra effort sorting and sifting through your randomness, in trying to decipher where any logic might be within?
Ok, then I guess you are just to lazy to have an intellectual conversation.

So you do not have time to read my posts, but have ample time to write lengthy insults? I see.

I am fully aware you have no time for deep intellectual debate.
Now keep wasting time writing creative insults.

So Jesus' influence is why you use hate speech? I see.
I guess you are just following another mans lead in a blind fashion.
Thanks for showing a major reason why I protest religion.
Thanks for showing why religion can be harmful.

I am sure Sista has her blinders on right now.

I still have hopes for you!
When your god gets off his ass and has a fish speak to me and tell me god enabled him to speak, I will then believe in said god. Until then, you are really making me laugh.
If your god was real, I would think this task would be simple, but yet he refuses to actually do anything actually astounding to prove himself real. It is as if he is not real at all.

You did them, even knowing God is real, and He gave you a way out!
It will not be His fault if you choose NOT to USE it!

Satan don't care how you get to hell, he just wants many people to go with him... the will!
Choose not to go with him!
You just likened homosexuals to followers of Hitler. The followers of Hitler murdered homosexuals.
Now what are homosexuals doing that is harming others?

Not sure if you could have picked a worse example to use for an analogy. And yet you expect us to think you have it the correct answers to god and religion?

Seems to me the problem is, some are in a delusion the book they follow was not written by men.

Folk now Here is something Really Heavy (prob because of all the Iron y in it)
I just was doing a bit of research and found out that My Great, Great, Great ect, Long way back Grandfather was Bishop William Mays (Mease) and was sent from England in 1609 to start a Church in Hampton, Va which which was rebuilt in 1728...
I checked with the genealogy research another Cuz has been working on for years and the line does follow back to beginning in Hampton,Va and the surrounding for many later members of the family so seems the Bishop was the first on my line to come to the US...
St. John's Church is the oldest English-speaking parish in America, founded in 1610. The church of St. John's is a 1728 worship building displaying beautiful colonial brickwork.

That's a great piece of family history you have. Do you know where in England your ancestor originated from?

I am unable to relate on that at a personal experience level, but not unable to empathize. I find it rather odd that you would find that to be a negative thing?

Why would that be?

Or are you always generally that mean spirited?

All your rebuttals to Mike D. are crap and lame. Everyone on this thread is now dumber for having to read your dribble. Face it, you're seriously not a match for atheist and do give a good example of a person who wants to be a christian but cannot even debate that subject or science with an atheist. You seem to want to have it both ways and be a fence straddler on these issues but have shown yourself too hypocritcal for either side.

p.s. your baby talk is not helping you in anyway, grow up.

Not yet... It runs into problems when we get to that early time frame because illiteracy was so bad that the names kept getting misspelled and have lead us wrong several times.. some in the past have used Mays,Mayes,Maze,Meace and May and there are completely different lines of those families that have nothing to do with us,,, But have a few in the family that are Really into it and have collected all kinds of Documents that follow the name to attached it to Places so we can identify our line from others..

I got a Court Transcript from the early 1800 that explains where all the old family money went though... My G,G,G,g granfather was sued by two slaves he owned that were Native American women which was illegal but he clamed they were black which was legal and he spend 20 years and every dime he had fighting in court... and lost...
