You don't think it's possible for one of the parties to not want a divorce?
I did not say that. I said that Paco wasn't being truthful. He wanted one. He just needed her to file so that he could remain a devout Catholic and subsequently remarry within the bounds of Catholicism.

Where did you people get the notion that America was "founded" on "Judeo/Christian principles? Please enlighten Topix which "method of founding was "Judeo" and which part was "Christian"! Please leave out the Hollywood romanticism parts of the story of this nation's beginning you learned in your condescending white suburban schools and churches.

I dislike Paco's penchant for lying, and pretending he's better than others.
I'll bet you five pickles that Paco wanted that divorce. He wanted the wife to file. He knew that he could not have gotten the $500 mulligan from the church if he were to be the one filing. Paco will tell you the exception...he already has...several times...abandonment.
I don't begrudge Paco gettin the divorce, or even wanting it.
He just shouldn't lie about it and expect others with the most rudimentary understanding of Catholicism to believe his statement that he "didn't want a divorce" merely because she filed and he didn't.
That's just utter bullshitt.

I wanted my divorce, and left the ex everything.....I mean everything.

quit my job, and started my own gig.

6 years later re-married, and debt free.

I abandoned my ex wife and left her everything, and still owe 4 more years of alimony.

worth every cent to rid myself of that witch.

she in all her wisdom and venom pizzed away a house with 200K equity, and savings account fighing me in court.

Like a liberal, she went on strike, and I fired her and moved the company.

PS: the kids live with me.

Usually the court awards the mother custody, even if she's a skank. She must have been REALLY BAD FOR YOU TO GET THE KIDDIES.....
I was married 22 years to a cheater. Never home, if he was he would be either sleeping or outside. Always spent the money on what HE wanted for his pleasures, never caring about the kids and me. Of course, I didn't know he was cheating until 20 years into it. I started to suspect and did some Charlie Cahn detecting myself. Discovered some incriminating clues of his infidelity. GOTTCHA! He said I can have everything , and I said, I accept! Except one thing, when I was at work, he would come in and take stuff on the sneak, My first mistake was not to change the locks. I called him and said stop coming in like a theif in the night and taking things. I offered him to come and get what he wanted and that would be the last time he entered the house.......I have never been happier in my life.....he was dragging me down. I went on to open two businesses and am happy as a lark!!!!

Speaking of educating the future of Americans,we are failing miserably. In Japan, the government and private industry paired on a joint venture and created KIDZANIAS,which is a theme park indoors that has 150 pavilions with real industry employees working in them to teach children how to do the job.
The children change into the uniform of the specific company, gets a short introduction of how to do the career, and start performing that task.

A few careers that I saw were Firemen, were a simulated house would blaze and the kids,dressed as firemen, spray water hoses to put out the blaze. Another, Coca Cola,had a simulated soda factory, also there was a chef's kitchen, a bank, computer technology,and 140 odd other careers. It was amazing!
No,American is not exceptional. We are the leading people when it comes to selfishness, self-centeredness, abject stupidity about looking towards the future, and ignorantly greedy.
Japan built this KIDZANIAS the size of a indoors shopping mall! The kids earn monopoly style money as pay after working, then they TEACH them to buy,save and invest that fake money.
This country and the people running it are stupid as hell if they believe America will continue to lead in the future with the insane politics and policies we have.

Google KIDZANIA IN JAPAN. I watched it this morning on WOSUOHIO TV.

You're apparently uneducated. Every culture defines its morality. Some cultures find it perfectly acceptable to marry children to either older men or marry two children when they're younger for property or financial reasons. Our culture does not view this behavior similarly. You've been proven wrong on every turn. Just because YOU refuse to believe these things does not make them untrue. It just means you're incapable or unwilling to see outside your own experiences.
That "some cultures find it perfectly acceptable to marry children to either older men..." does not make it moral.

It's irrational for you, not for us. As I've said before, morality existed before your religion. You can try and deny that, but it's still true. Morality continues to exist for people who aren't even aware of Christianity.
Morality is not the equivalent of each individual [or each culture, as you claim] determining what is acceptable behavior for himself/themselves.

That practice is what we call relativism.
Its natural result is inconsistency.
Inconsistency = Chaos.

Just look at those nations with Judeo-Christian Majorities and compare them to nations founded on Islam (Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia)or African Tribalism (Haiti, Botswana, Zimbabwe), the difference in human rights, human dignity, cleanliness, logical thinking and rational debate are clear.
Jesus is the light of the world and the nations that reject Christ dwell in darkness that even you can't deny without appearing to be completely and fundamentally dishonest.
Yes, tell that to all the victims of imperialism, all the slaves who were killed/abused/tortured, etc. etc. Talk about being fundamentally dishonest! Many bad, bad things have happened in the name of Christianity. And other religions as well. I don't know why Christians always turn to Islam whenever your religion is criticized. No atheist will argue that Islam is better or more preferable. Religion in and of itself is one of the many reasons mankind has the problems it does.

Instinct compels animals to practice incest, cannibalism and filicide.
If man also is but a random animal, why be morally outraged when he participates in such behaviors?

Our culture practiced slavery. Was this country immoral then? Slaves help this country become what it has - are you saying one of the tool implemented to build this country is moral or immoral? Obviously our culture changed to believe slavery immoral. The culture changed. Their morality changed.

You do not define morality for an entire group of people. Your religion does not define morality for an entire group of people. Your political party does not define morality for an entire group of people.

I think you need to look up the definition of morality. That is exactly what it is.

1. The quality of being in accord with standards of right or good conduct.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/morality

Moral absolutism does not exist - not even within your own religion. Divorce was once considered immoral. It no longer is a majority perception. Moral absolutism also relies on human perception which is not consistent and never has been. Not only that, but your religion says that regardless of the sin, all sins can be forgiven as long as the person repents. So why bother being moral when all you have to do is ask for forgiveness and *poof* all your sins are absolved?

Religious people aren't any more moral or immoral than atheists.

Some animals show the ability to understand a moral code. How do you explain that? Not all animals engage in these behaviors, just like not all people engage in these behaviors. Many who do often have some kind of mental defect, sometimes a genetic predisposition to mental illness. I would say some animals who engage in these behaviors are not as genetically evolved or superior than others. We as humans are also compelled to be violent, prejudiced, suicidal, etc. Many of these behaviors are not found in "animals." We define what behaviors are moral and immoral. Obviously being unkind, violent, aggressive, and sometimes abusive to our own kind is considered moral.
