Actually having been to a catholic mass or two a lot of years ago. The priests really do not use the bible. Between the cardio work out of kneeling, standing, and sitting. The priest stands up there behind the pulpit and reads a prepared sermon.
If it were not for the cardio work out and the automatic responses from crowd. That is said at certain points during the mass. To make sure no one has fallen asleep no doubt. The whole thing would in my opinion be a yawn.
In a Catholic Mass they do 2 or 3 readings from the bible and a gospel reading from the bible and those precede the homily (sermon). I can't say if they use the actual book or a smaller one for the Mass but the content comes from the bible. The masses I attended the sheep sat during the readings but knelt during the gospel reading.

I previously mentioned this, see below.
Client-Lawyer Relationship
Rule 1.6 Confidentiality Of Information
Any one is free to look up the extent of Rule 1.6 on the American Bar Association website. An attorney’s feelings on the matter do not come into play when defending a client. They are there to do a job, whether court appointed or a high profile private defense attorney. Every one has the right to representation. That Silly Sassy clearly doesn’t have an appreciation for the justice system in which she lives under.
No she doesn't seem to understand anything out side of her narrow point of view.

But which betrayal? The betrayal that we have all grown up with hearing or the one that is more likely that he Judas was looking for Jesus to reveal himself as god and over throw the Roman authorities.
As Jesus certainly did know that Judas was about to hand him over to the authorities there seems to be some questions of motives here as well. Did Jesus knowing that by being handed over to the authorities would lead to beating and death sentence. There is some questions on that as well. As the translation could be as less as three hours. Easily survivable for a man in good health.
So what is left is a lot of questions of what really happened and having books that are badly mistranslated. Sometime purposefully at times it would seem.
With a lot of bad editing as well. That the original books have never been found just copy of copies. Can only lead one to conclude that what ever really did happen at the time was so minor that had it not been for Paul later on taking up the cause.
Christianity would have been a curious little reform movement with in the Jewish religion in Judea. That may not have survived into what we call the 21rst century.
Crucifixion was actually so heinous the Romans wouldn't use it on their own citizens. First came the beating with whips designed to tear the flesh to the bone and then the actual crucifixion was really death by asphyxiation. The cross position made it difficult to inhale and the victim had to push himself up with each breath (using his nailed feet) so the Romans would break their legs so they were unable to do the pushing up move necessary to draw in breaths.

The location of the nails was insidious because they specifically went through major nerves in the wrists and the tops of the feet adding to the excruciating pain.

Interestingly, according to the biblical records of the incident the Romans did not break Jesus' legs which allowed him to suffer much longer than the average crucifixion victim.

You bring up an interesting point...it would have made more sense for Jesus to use his miraculous powers to simply smite the Romans. He had performed several miracles already but could not save himself and put down the Romans? Seems off.

You're an idiot. How much money has the Church spent defending your child molesting clan?
Roman Catholics spent $615 million on sex abuse cases in 2007. Your money pays to defend those whom you condemn. Keep supporting your dirty church.
The RCC appears to be the biggest defender of child molesters.

You might have been in a barn but you sure weren't in a Catholic Church. Nobody kneels during the gospel.

"An association for victims of abuse, while not commenting directly on the Internet project, has dismissed the conference as "window dressing" and said the Vatican should publish its documentation on abuse and hand it over to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague."

Thank you for proving my point..

Face it the catholic church is not going to a thing till the catholics in the pews stand up as one and demand that the vatican does more than feel good guides and, yes, window dressing.

Are you effing serious or are you a moron?

We were discussing other organizations who cover up sexual abuse of children like the church and you named Planned Parenthood. Now you provide this link, which doesn't show a shred of evidence to back up your BS claim that PP has covered up sexual abuse within it's organization.

You're full of feces for jesus. Go shove it where the sun doesn't shine you irrational fundie.

Shame on your for your willful distortion of facts in an effort to bash PP and diminish the horrors of your dirty church.

Ink, the Church my parents now attend do not have kneelers. There is no kneeling ever... not in that one and trust me when I say, it's a full house on Saturdays. Not sure about Sundays...

As far as the reading of the Gospel - I don't remember. You know best, being a regular, but there is kneeling (prolonged) during the giving/receiving of the sacrament in many RC churches. Is there not? Iirc, there's an earlier session involving kneeling. No?

Not sure what the point is... Bibles were never supplied (bulky), but I always assumed the Priest was reading from something holy.

Please tell me you remember "Limbo"? It's where a person who wasn't good enough for heaven, but not bad enough for hell would end up until the final judgment. Unbaptized when to Limbo, for example. Holy Ghost became the Holy Spirit. Confessions were no longer held in closets. Lots of changes.
