Fine. Now that you have defined what YOU THINK this is about may I be allowed to express my opinion without ad hominum attacks from you? If so I agree to the same terms.<quoted text>
None of my responses were biblically based.
This isn't about whether or not Carla Hale deserved anything. This is about 1) whether or not the firing was justified based on a contract she wrote and 2) whether or not the City of Columbus' law is enforceable. How is Carla Hale's freedom "trampled" when 1) she willingly signed a contract indicating her agreement to the terms therein and 2) contract: an agreement signed by TWO parties that indicates each agrees to the specific terms spelled within and spells out that it can be terminated?
Emotionally fueled ranting isn't productive.
-Carla listed someone who her own mother thought of as family in the obit. As someone who has been in that situation many times, I can assure you that the Catholics I know discuss this stuff with family, friends and people from church.
-The RCC stance on homosexuality is that BEING gay or lesbian isn't immoral.
-The RCC even has rites that is has in the past, used to bless same sex unions (true they are no longer in fashion, BUT THEY ARE STILL part of Church law.)
-Since the only real grounds the Church is standing on is the ASSUMPTION that because she is in a long term relationship means she is having same sex relations ignores the fact that many Catholic couples n longer have sex.
-Since the RCC doesn't recognize the other women as a spouse how can they claim that Ms. Hale is "married" and "having sex" just like regular folks?
Now that I think of it, you thought the child raping priests was a scandal for the church? Whoever made this decision has put the Church in a much worse position.
On a side note last night I was watching the story of Fatima on one of the religious channels.(Always loved Our Lady).
It was the first time I heard what the last vision was. It's of a Bishop in White (only the Pope of Rome may wear that). He's being led to a tree that is growing in the form of the Cross by a wehole processional of Cardinals and other Priests.
When he arrives he is attacked. He is shot with arrows and guns. Many interpret this visaion as a warning for the end times. And believe it meansd that the Pope will be destroyed by "non-believers".
I take a different interpretation (Much like Danmiel did). I see the final Fatima vision as a warning that the Chruch is being led to slaughter by pious self righteous people who are more concerned with protecting their turf than they are with "God's Will". So yes I do see it as a warning of the End Times. All the Goats lining up and asking "when did we ever mistreat you Lord?" (Matthew 25:31-46)
Oh and BTW what ever happend to the moral Catholics and other "Christains" preached about in Luke 10:25-37
You can get as snarky as you want with me kiddo. But it won't stop people from looking at the questions I've raised on thios thread.
When you foirsyt appeared I sort of like you. But now that you are behaving like a Charter Member of the Columbus Topix Round Table overseeing the interests of the Council of the 7th toe......
