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

It sounds like our experiences as recovering catholics were much a like!
I took an interest in Taro cards after knowing a woman who read and was VERY accurate.
All I had to do was bring out the Taro cards to clear the room of religious riff raff, I found that to be quite handy!!
I hear you! I would totally freak out if a CC priest came anywhere near me in my last hours, I guess I would equally freak him out considering the language I would use against him!! LOL!! I would not be able to help myself :)
Yes, you would have a greater insight than those who haven't had that Catholic background.

I felt for the longest time I've been living in this Catholic enclosure like a box. It was a very comforting place to be.
Everything is black or white. They are no grays even to think or suggest there could be I would believe it was the devil tempting me.
Now when I questioned the teachings of the Catholic Church about stuff like birth control, homosexuality or even gays in the priesthood etc...I find myself out of that Catholic box and treated as a threat to all who follow strongly the Catholic teachings.

I'm learning not to let it get to me.

On balance, religion is positively EVIL !!
I don't believe in evil, as that word smacks of religion. But I certainly don't believe that re-lying on religious fantasy ... one's own, or what has been handed down from others, leads up to anything good.

HIstory proved over and over and over, that those who created religious fantasies, always favored their own fantasies over the religious fantasies of those in other cults ... and no amount of modern thinking can change that ancient blight that still imposes itself on humanity.

Religion is greatly abused :(
Religion can't BE abused. It has no power in and of itself.

It is the right-fighters in cults that bring it to life with their false images of gods and goddesses.

Wicca is a prime example. Gardner's goddess was a homophobe. He created the goddess that way so she would reflect his own homophobic belief.

All human-creators of images created religion by the same "tokens" of arrogance.

They looked in their mirrors, and said to themselves ... "This is the way it ought to be, and "I" will go forth and see that it comes to pass!!!"

Estelle ... Morgana DID come from the same Catholic background as did you ... and now she puts faith in tarot cards.

Do you agree that that is a good idea?

Many people hop and bounce from one religious practise to another, The attitude for many of the discontents is explained as, "It might be fine for others ... but it didn't fit for me."

Maybe a song to express such sentiments is in order.

tarot gone wrong

I have been a reader for 16 yrs. Last summer I decided to start charging 20 dollars a reading to help me get through the summertime. Then I read for someone I barely knew. She was incredibly nice and very open to it, but I worked with her and I was a little nervous. I read her cards and told her that she would not have children for a very long time, if ever. I felt so bad that the reading was so heartbreaking for her that I offered to read her again since I may have been wrong cause I was so nervous. I read her again a month later, same results. Then 3 months later, she was pregnant. This happened over a yr ago and it has been very hard to get over that reading and continue to do readings. I decided to stop charging (I had not charged for 15 yrs) but I still have problems with confidence ever since. It was the only reading I had ever done that was just completly wrong.

Exactly where did I say I put "faith" in Taro cards?

Definition of FAITH

1
a : allegiance to duty or a person : loyalty
b (1): fidelity to one's promises (2): sincerity of intentions
2
a (1): belief and trust in and loyalty to God (2): belief in the traditional doctrines of a religion
b (1): firm belief in something for which there is no proof (2): complete trust
3
: something that is believed especially with strong conviction; especially : a system of religious beliefs <the Protestant faith>

Actually I collect them.

It's very simple. You and Estelle were getting along. June can't stand it when other posters get along. So, since your words as they were could not be used in an attempt to make you and Estelle argue about something, June twisted them into something she thought she could use.

The world renowned psychic Sylvia Brown informed parents that their young son was dead. He was very much alive.

I suggest that those who claim to see in a clear manner, might believe they are right, when they could be very wrong.

You gave that impression when you stated the following verbatim ... "I took an interest in Taro cards after knowing a woman who read and was VERY accurate.

And now I "get" what you meant. You tried to scare the religious ones away by bringing out the Tarot cards that you were certain would offend them.

Gothcha!... My misinterpretation of what you meant. I apologize.

That may have been the impression YOU got, but that's because you're skewed, and have no sense of humor. It wasn't the impression she gave.

I usually explain if I mean things as sarcasm, or tongue-in-cheek, or as a joke, etc., so that others will know my intent.

Written language is indeed tricky, as there are no facial expressions, or tones of voice to take into consideration of what the person means to express.

Sorry Estelle. My mistake about Morgana's intended use of Tarot cards.

I misunderstood.

AHHH well ... I suggest that you look at this way. If they can't see the good in you, you can at least see the bad in them!
