Catholic Church Waging War on Women and Gays

“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

There is a type of mouse that when he matures and starts having sex, that is his whole focus. He doesn't sleep, he doesn't eat. He literally has sex until he drops dead from malnutrition and exhaustion.

He didn't plan it that way. It happens the same way for his whole species.

They are driven completely by their lust for sex.

In South Korea a young man played video games for over fifty hours straight and fell off his chair ... dead.

He was driven by his lust to keep on serving his favorite pleasure.

In religion, many people starved themselves to death in the quest of being "saints." Such was their lust for the promised bliss of "heaven."

Saintly Sickness: Catherine of Siena as a Prototype of Holy Anorexia

In the Medieval period in Europe, a large number of religious women, many of them monastics, engaged in extreme fasting and deprivation. As a form of asceticism and with the purpose of purifying themselves and their world from sin, such fasting women believed that through self-denial and even self-torture, they could achieve perfect unity with God, and that giving in to their human needs was indeed selfish, greedy, and gluttonous. These women have collectively been given the name the holy anorectics because they starved themselves for prolonged periods of time for penitential reasons and because many of them were made saints on account of their unusual behavior and self-denial.

If people starved themselves to death for religion, by those within the cults, they were perceived as holy.

If the members of the cult fought and killed others to defend those very dogmas as being holy, again they would be sainted by the hierarchy.

They were driven by lust to please the "gods" of human imagination, so that the gods would reward them "for" the lusts.

It was a treatmill driven by lust of human imagination.

Until this morning, I wasn't aware that there were vegetarian deities.

Greece:

In Crete itself Zeus probably took the place of a vegetation god, since Cretans exhibited a ‘tomb of Zeus’ and few but vegetarian deities were believed to be subject to periodic deaths and births.

When they become certain that they are linked to gods, people take great pride in such "accomplishments."

From the book compiled by Larousse … World Mythology

Greece:

The various marriages Zeus made with goddesses have been outlined. His unions with mortal women were, on the other hand, too many to enumerate, and poets have told these tales again and again. The vanity of great families certainly accounted for some increase in their number, for they would pride themselves on having an ancestor who was in direct line of descent from the king of the gods.

Many Catholics take great pride in the idea that their god impregnated the "virgin" Mary. In their mental images it gives Catholics direct lineage to Jesus' father, the one and only God in the sky.

Unfortunately, the Catholics didn't realize they were worshipping a Jewish god, as (even within their own dogmas) they taught that there could BE no other god before or after the father of Jesus.

When people are arrogant enough to believe they can dictate the future for themselves ... the dogmas on which they base their tales, tangle them in their own webs of lies.

How many tales of evil and holy gods does it take to make people question that just maybe the tales are nothing BUT tales?

Religion always was and is based on the idea ... "I am related to divinity ... if you also want to inherit divinity, you will join my religion and ... even if not in the present ... certainly in the future, goodness and mercy will come to you. It is your right to be included in the divine will!"

"Arrogance is mine" ... imply the devout believers.

Jesus is part of the godhead, but God is not a Jew you silly ninny. He's is Spirit and we worship Him in spirit and in truth.

For someone who claims to have read the Bible you certainly are a dunce headed fool when you try to explain God.

How could Jesus be a Jew, if his father did not favor ONLY Jews, and there was only one god in the sky?

Does the god serve Muslims as holy beings, or does he just serve Jews???

YOU are the fool!

Your Catholic dogma claims that only Catholics can be saved by the one and only god.

It's all myth anyway and myth is simply nonsensical gibberish.

These Christian myths came from other religions, and were morphed just a bit by the Christians for their new testament.

The book known as the new testament was new, but the stories were "old hat."
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>

Greece:

Hades and Persephone

The underworld

The realm of Hades was often described by poets, but the idea people had of it varied according to the period. It was usually imagined to be a territory surrounded by flowing waters, a vast marsh crossed by rivers with sinister names; the Acheron ( a name significantly connected with the word ‘pain’), the Cocytus (or ‘river of groans’) the Styx, the Phlegethon (or river of fire’) and Lethe (or ‘river of forgetfulness’). Acheron and Cocytus were, in actual fact, two rivers in Epirus which crossed desolate landscape in which there were” mouths of hell’.

American Journal of Psychiatry reported the following:
“ Religiously unaffiliated subjects had significantly more lifetime suicide attempts and more first-degree relatives who committed suicide than subjects who endorsed a religious affiliation. Unaffiliated subjects were younger, less often married, less often had children, and had less contact with family members. Furthermore, subjects with no religious affiliation perceived fewer reasons for living, particularly fewer moral objections to suicide. In terms of clinical characteristics, religiously unaffiliated subjects had more lifetime impulsivity, aggression, and past substance use disorder. No differences in the level of subjective and objective depression, hopelessness, or stressful life events were found.

There you go people! The religion of atheism leaves you without hope, bereft and so full of despair it has the highest suicide rate around!

more on atheism and suicide:

Pitzer College sociologist Phil Zuckerman compiled country-by-country survey, polling and census numbers relating to atheism, agnosticism, disbelief in God and people who state they are non-religious or have no religious preference. These data were published in the chapter titled "Atheism: Contemporary Rates and Patterns" in The Cambridge Companion to Atheism, ed. by Michael Martin, Cambridge University Press: Cambridge, UK (2005). In examining various indicators of societal health, Zuckerman concludes about suicide:

"Concerning suicide rates, this is the one indicator of societal health in which religious nations fare much better than secular nations. According to the 2003 World Health Organization's report on international male suicides rates (which compared 100 countries), of the top ten nations with the highest male suicide rates, all but one (Sri Lanka) are strongly irreligious nations with high levels of atheism. It is interesting to note, however, that of the top remaining nine nations leading the world in male suicide rates, all are former Soviet/Communist nations, such as Belarus, Ukraine, and Latvia. Of the bottom ten nations with the lowest male suicide rates, all are highly religious nations with statistically insignificant levels of organic atheism."

If Christians would study history of religion, they would see the basic same tales told long before the relatively new religion of Christianity was written by ex-Jew Catholics.

But when fantasy comes in to play, those such as DayStorm salavates at his upcoming rewards that he is sure he deserves for being faithful to Catholic dogmas.

Silly people!

Atheists are selfish:

Arthur C. Brooks wrote in Policy Review regarding data collected in the Social Capital Community Benchmark Survey (SCCBS)(data collected by in 2000 by researchers at universities throughout the United States and the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research):
“ The differences in charity between secular and religious people are dramatic. Religious people are 25 percentage points more likely than secularists to donate money (91 percent to 66 percent) and 23 points more likely to volunteer time (67 percent to 44 percent). And, consistent with the findings of other writers, these data show that practicing a religion is more important than the actual religion itself in predicting charitable behavior. For example, among those who attend worship services regularly, 92 percent of Protestants give charitably, compared with 91 percent of Catholics, 91 percent of Jews, and 89 percent from other religions.[8]

Religious people are more likely to give to charity, and when they give, they give more money: four times as much. And Arthur Brooks told me that giving goes beyond their own religious organization:

"Actually, the truth is that they're giving to more than their churches," he says. "The religious Americans are more likely to give to every kind of cause and charity, including explicitly non-religious charities."
