“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

The government protects his rights to preach foolish nonsense and in turn gain a huge following of gullible fools that have nothing better to do with their time than be certain that there is no sin, no hell and no devil ... but there definitely is a god that loves them unconditionally.
Unless his body-guards mess up one day and neglect to protect him ... he's got it made!!!
Religion has been very good to the new "Jesus."

From my perspective, we would have been better off as a united group to never believe in the first coming of any savior in any religion.

That tale is very old in deed and came down through one religion after another as did most of the myths ... with a simple change of a name.

To some believers ... that word God is well worth killing for and dying for.

To others it's a word that has created nothing but division, animosity, torture, imprisonment and otherwise unnecessary deaths.

Religion caused this mental state in Anita Bryant, but the REAL tragedy was, homosexuals paid the price century after century because of those who suffered from the same blight of indoctrinated theological ignorance!
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >

Book …“Playboy Interview … edited by G. Barry Golson …
Anita Bryant … anti-gay activist……

June, 1978…………..

Playboy: In some jurisdictions, homosexual behavior is now prosecuted as a misdemeanor. Are you in favor of returning it to a felony status?

Bryant: Yes, I think so. Any time you water down the law, it just makes it easier for immorality to become tolerated.

Playboy: Let’s say two adult men are caught in bed, fornicating. Under felony provisions, they could be sent to jail for 20 years. Do you think 20 years in prison would rehabilitate them?

Bryant: Why make it easy for them? I think it only helps to condone it and make it easier for kids who wouldn’t be so concerned if it were just a misdemeanor, whereas a felony might make them think twice, especially the younger ones.

Playboy: What if it doesn’t? Boys should spend 20 years in jail for one act?

Bryant: If they’re on good behavior and everything, and they really—

Playboy: What are you saying—that someone will be rehabilitated and turned away from homosexuality in prison? Surely, you know that prisoners are gang-raped routinely. Someone jailed on a homosexual charge is particularly vulnerable. You must know that.

Bryant: They’ll have plenty of time to think. Just because prisons are corrupt and not doing the right job in rehabilitation because they don’t have enough spiritual emphasis doesn’t mean that there should not be a strong punishment for that.

Playboy: Does punishment lead to redemption?

Bryant: It’s in the Bible.

Playboy: So for one sin, the sin of one man making love to another man, you would send them to jail? That’s the Christian approach?

Bryant: As a Christian, I know the only answer is the Gospel.

Playboy: If Bob told you to do something right now that was against the grain of your thought, would you simply submit to him?

Bryant: I might rebel against it—and I have many times—but, Biblically, I would submit, yes.

Biblically Mother Teresa submitted. At least that's what she believed.

She went against her own conscience in the hopes that she would be saved and be a saint in heaven.

Rev. Fr. Miranda will tell you what I said.—I spoke as if my very heart was in love with God—tender personal love.—If you were in place of Fr. Miranda—you have said—what hypocrisy. Most of the nuns thanked me for speaking.—I really did it because you wrote to do so.

I'm hopeful that more and more often there are going to be people who previously trusted words in their bibles that are going to ask themselves ... "Did I believe what was true, or did I simply believe what I was certain was true?"

The word “homosexual” did not enter the English language until the 19th century. Please note how men added that word to the later editions of the bibles.

Or don't you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexuals,

They needed soldiers to fight their religious wars, and they perceived that homosexuals were of no use to them in that regard.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>
From the book, Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven … Uta Ranke-Heinemann

In his sermons against unchastity that he gave at the French court John Gerson (d. 1429) even invoked a decree of the Christian Emperor Vanentinian from the year 390 that punished homosexuality with burning at the stake (Codex Theodosianus 9, 7, 6). Gerson equates every action that thwarts the fertility of marital sex with homosexuality.(Sermon against Unchastity, 2nd Sunday in Advent, Works, vol. III, 916).

So you appear to believe that your president has increased the cost of refined oil products and that the defeated contender would not allow such a thing.

Some have another feeling about the word.

I never heard or read that one before.

When I was under the spell of religion I used to hope that the GOD of my dreams was only of the nature of love.

Now when I think of the word god, I think of the theologians that up to seventy years of my life (with their mind-bending words) managed to keep me in a constant state of confusion.

At last I'm free from their tactics to now rely only on what makes sense to me.

I suggest you don't take much of what Jumper posts as serious stuff. He just likes to keep the forum moving along, sometimes with humor and sometimes by bugging people ... mostly me ... isn't that right Jumper?

It's ironic.

Unless beliefs align with his dogmas, the pope is not FOR freedom. He would like nothing better than to ban homosexuality from the earth as an evil offense against "god." And he would like abortion to be made illegal and take freedom to choose away from women. And he would no doubt like to ban birth control if only he had his way.

Discovery that seals sleep with only half their brains may help unlock mysteries of human slumber: study

The animals, which sleep identically to humans while on land, pull a pretty neat brain trick to stay alert while asleep in the water: They shut down only half their brains.

Findings from the study, published this month in the Journal of Neuroscience, may help explain how the body’s systems allow the brain to remain alert during waking hours and go “offline” during sleep.
