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

Aw, Jumper, you know I like you so there's no need to be snippy to me. I've told you there's no reason I can't be friends with both of you. I find you both intelligent and interesting and I like all your posts.

And I hope you both have a very pleasant Thanksgiving! You too, June :)

June, I hope you NEVER leave this forum; you add so much common sense and a TON OF REALITY, something desperately needed here. As you well know, most people do not want their archaic beliefs challenged and they don't want truth. And it's those very people who honestly think they're "religious". Discrimination and prejudice are SINS, but I'm sure I don't have to tell you that.
Thank you Sherlayne. I don't intend to leave, but I have no control over what happens in the future.

As you are probably already aware, I don't believe in using or adhering TO the word sin.

As I don't believe in the existence of a god, I don't believe in the theology of falling short of the expectations of a god ... which the word sin denotes.

I believe that babies are born whole in worth, and as they grow older, if they weren't taught BY religion that the best of them is off somewhere with gods or goddesses, they would believe in their own worth as WHOLE beings just as they are.

From my perspective, religion is not only silly ... it causes emotional pain by teaching that humans are an insignificant part of something far more wonderful that must be sought after in order to find.

The fear that humans can't be good without religion is simple nonsense taught by leaders of cults that either don't know better, or know better and refuse for one reason or another to do better.

Yes ... how sad! I wonder if another company will make Twinkies for Twinkie-lovers. I haven't studied the issue.

No matter what you say the bottom line is you believe the unborn always comes first than the pregnant female. That's the way the Roman Catholic Church sees it and always did.
I'd like to see you explain how that unborn child is totally independent of the mother and vice versus.

Blacks were persecuted by the white Christians as not having souls. But once they were accepted by the white Christians as having souls, they grabbed the same bibles with zest of their own, and now they USE the same bibles to persecute those who are gay.

DayStorm believes he is a professional rebuker of sin.

He believes that Jesus is also a professional rebuker of sin.

Maybe Jesus and Daystorm are one and the same, even though one is a Jew and one is a Catholic.

You can never REALLY "tell."

Even if Jesus had been real it would be impossible to know who he rebuked and who he patted on the back.

The Catholics and Protestants killed each other for centuries ... and both sides believed that Jesus was patting them on their backs ... figuratively stating of course!

Religion can't make stupid people intelligent!

Have you checked lately in the book of Jewish records to see if your name is "there?"

Maybe you could ask if Catholics will be allowed, rather than just presuming, as does your pope!

Jews don't accept just anybody ... you KNOW!

June, you are full of crap. I have never been taught that and I might add the Bible says that there is neither Jew, nor Greek, nor male or female, but we are all ONE in Christ.

Now, would you like to address why the majority of Black pastors are against homosexuality?

All the centuries of Catholics putting Jews to death, "must" account for "something!"

Surely Jesus was not smiling as he was forced (by written and believed dogma) to forgive "sin" in Catholic confessionals, while his fellow Jews were being tortured and murdered. Sarcasm!

I can't picture that as being based on truth.

1096

may 00 - Before embarking on the First Crusade Count Emich von Leiningen and his army swept through their own German homeland, murdering thousands of Jews, whom they had declared "murderers of Christ." When Emich arrived in the town of Worms, the town's Roman Catholic Bishop tried to protect the Jewish population, but the Crusaders overran his palace and slaughtered some 500 people who had taken shelter there. Another 300 were killed over the next two days. The graves of the massacre victims can still be seen at the Jewish Cemetery at Worms.

1190

mar 16 - The Crusades began the massacre of Jews in York, England.The Jewish population of York fled to Clifford's Tower overlooking the rivers Ouse and Foss during an anti-Jewish riot. A crazed friar set fire to the tower and rather than be captured, the inhabitants committed mass suicide.

mar 17 - Crusades complete massacre of Jews of York England.

mar 18 - Crusaders kill 57 Jews in Bury St Edmonds England.
205

jul 15 - Pope Innocent III states Jews are doomed to perpetual servitude & subjugation due to crucifixion of Jesus.

1348x –
Accused of being a cause of the plague, the Jews in France were dragged from their houses and burned.Pogroms occurred throughout Europe. When the plague subsided, few Jews were left in Germany ? or the Low Countries.

DayStorm (as do all people in religious cults) wants to be assured that he is in the IN crowd.

If "Jehovah" is fickle enough to rejects some, he could reject ALL! After all ... according to the written WORD, he created EVIL.

Now THAT is a comforting thought for eager beavers such as DayStorm.
