"required vows of poverty, celibacy and obedience to their superiors"

What a waste. On whose authority?

Right on to these and all those Priests from Belgium, who came to here to our Hawaii and served.

Perhaps one and the same, as both posts show a very shallow understanding of the deeper meaning on life and the service and sacrifice made by those who gave their all to the down-trodden.

There is no dispute (except from the ignorant) that the two Belgium Priests carried on a tradition memorialized by our Father Damien, the Leper Priest of Kalaupapa.

That two posers using Hawaiian names would denigrate not only the service of these two treasures, but also the service of our Father Damien to the outcast of Kalaupapa, speaks more to hala and lani's own sorry lot in life.

Religions are based on power lust, greed and keeping themselves in power at the expense of the masses, including persecution of women as second class humans! Until mankind and womankind start to develop their awareness that humans are destined to become even greater than these so called "god(s)", who are actually humans that are much more advanced in knowledge and spiritual development, but strayed from the Creational laws, they will remain degraded to secondary roles serving these parasites!

Just look at the result of missionaries coming to Hawaii, the misery they caused for Hawaiians and who actually "benefited" from the preaching of a false prophet called Jesus Christ along with their perverted doctrine called the bible? All those decendents of missionaries, Castle/Crook, A & B, Amfac and others with vast land and wealth, yet the native Hawaiians have the highest infant mortality rates, homeless and other social ills which was never at this level when they enjoyed governmental independence that was overthrown in 1889?

So yes, god is a brutal dictator along with its oppressive religious order! So save your money and don't waste time in religious stupidity that only benefits at the expense of others.

Thanks to all the Missionaries for completely ruining Hawaii and its culture.

Right wing Christians are still at it today.

When Kamehameha Schools sing Christmas carols at their holiday concert, you can see the damage the Missionaries did.

They can all go back where they came from.

I'm so sorry you compare those who came to Hawaii under the false pretense of Christianity only to become thieves of the Hawaiian lands, its lands and its way of life. Father Damian and those that followed never came to rape the lands and people but to help them and asked for almost nothing except their love and friendship.

ahem...then somebody better go tell hope chapel to go screw off...espeically when they say they have a female minister who claims she is holy by gods word.
Yet, somehow manages to fraudulently scam residents of senior citizens, handicapped ,low income families out of hundreds of dollars being an unlicensed resident manager for an unlicensed real estate company. Now thats what I call fabrication...
when they fabricate a religion...oh by the way after each sunday service they collect your fee's for memberships...when did christ start charging people to come and pray ?....hallejulla and pass the plate..sorry we don't give change here for $20.

Eh, yeah, all you folks like talk stink about these two men of honor, the last of the Father Damien line of missionaries from Belgium.

Yeah, you go right ahead, You going end up in hell, no worry.(Looks to me, some of you already there.)

John Kamaka, you are an idiot. Probably one made-up, fake Hawaiian name being used by an imposter.

Essentially one haole trying for act like you one Hawaiian.

Or one DUMB Hawaiian. No talk for us. You make us look stupid.

Either way, you is one stupid guy.

You like go back to the kapus, we put you on the lele first. Oh, wait, we no put kauwa or rubbish on the lele.

Eh, stupid, Father Damien served our People.

What you did besides get fat and stupid and make people think that is Hawaiian, to be fat and stupid?

Father Damien was more than a priest..he was caretaker of the ill, and caregiver to the hawaiians...this was the only person who cared for the Molokai community....John aka Kamaka, ease down on your words to others...they are not as informed as you, or knowledge in the sense.
You know that, as well as others....Wildman.

You mean these missionaries made sacrifices because they really believed in something?....that's funny because the ones putting them down only believe in token a joint and collecting a welfare check!.

Good for the missionaries, shame on the tongue lashing bums.
