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

And you spend just as much wasted energy telling other people what they believe and how they think. I don't think any of us think about you per se at all. I know I don't.
I'm very happy that you are content with you life as it is with no interest in things of a spiritual nature.
You are born, you suffer and you die. According to June. That is all you need to know.
You are the one that has told me what you believe and what you think.

I just respond to your posts with what I believe and think.

You mentioned that I believe I was born, I suffer, and I die.

You forgot to mention that I also enjoy what I believe is enjoyable ... and that it's not your religion.

Most books written about death experiences, were done so by those in religion.

Concerning the death experiences, I appreciate what Sam Parnia is studying, as he will not be bullied by those in religion to put religious connotations on the studies.

If we deserve funerals ... how much more do the cells that keep us alive and govern our moods ... at least to a certain degree deserve such accolades?

When, at a funeral or a memorial, do we ever here ... "Those cells that kept George alive and in such a good mood were really something ... weren't they?"

My guess is, you won't hear it, cause it ain't gonna happen.

People that know they are dying often want to believe that the "god" of their dreams is only of the character of love. It makes their emotions all warm and fuzzy.

But before that, many of them chose to believe that the god was in deed a god that could either love or punish ... as the mood hit "him."

Some believe in a God that sees us as bad and unlovable. But many at the edge of life find a God that loves us unconditionally, that sees us as guiltless.

The roman catholic diocese from Los Angeles from 2007 paid out $660 MILLION in lawsuits, and today the meter is still running and the story that started then is going to explode very shortly.

How can the roman cathlic church leaders point their fingers at others, "women and gays" when they themselves have committed the worst sins of all and cost hundreds of millions $$?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/30/la-c...

Every catholic who puts money into the church collection is fiancially supporting the defense costs of guilty buggering clergy.

Is that where you want a percentage of your hard earned money going?

If not, then why are catholics so SILENT!

Catholics pay ALL the bills of the church. Catholics should have more control of where their money is actually going.

What a shame it is that so many homosexuals have committed suicide because so-called "experts" with negative words stole their self-worth away from them.

From the book “Women and Madness”… by Phyllis Chesler

Carole: I became infatuated with my first therapist, who was a woman. She told me that lesbianism is a sickness. She also told me that I wasn’t a lesbian. I stopped eating and I was down to ninety pounds. I looked like a little boy with long hair. The therapist there, a man, also kept insisting I wasn’t lesbian, that everyone had these feelings and I should push them away.

Phyllis: Did you ever ask,“Well, what would be wrong if I were?”

Carole: No, I only knew that from the general feeling on the ward, that it was wrong and that I’m not a lesbian. The therapist felt that the feelings I had for women were basically anti-male feelings instead of pro-woman feelings.

From the book “Women and Madness”… by Phyllis Chesler

Frances: I fell in love with a girl for the first time when I was twenty-four. I’d been in therapy at a hospital clinic in [Bellevue) and told my therapist about it when he came back from his vacation.

Phyllis: What was his reaction?

Frances: He freaked out. He started yelling at me.“You’re doing this because you think I’m your father and you want to hurt your father. You’re a spoiled child. The minute I go away you do this, you go out and do something that can be so dangerous” and he just freaked me out!

In 1860, Elizabeth Packard’s husband psychiatrically imprisoned her because she dared to engage in “free religious inquiry.” She insisted on teaching her Bible class that humans are born “good’ and “not evil.”

Yeah she is credible, look at the company she keeps.

In the late 1970s Kübler-Ross became interested in out-of-body experiences, mediumship, spiritualism and in other ways attempting to contact the dead. This led to a scandal connected to the Shanti Nilaya healing center where she was duped by the medium Jay Barham, founder of the Church of the Facet of the Divinity. Claiming he could channel the spirits of the departed and summon ethereal "entities", he encouraged church members to engage in sexual relations with the "spirits". He may have hired several women to play the parts of female spirits for this purpose.[6] Kubler-Ross' friend Deanna Edwards attended a service to ascertain whether allegations against Barham were true. He was found to be naked and wearing only a turban when Edwards unexpectedly pulled masking tape off the light switch and flipped on the light.[7][8][9]

I don't find what she writes any more credible than what you write ... so I don't know what you are trying to prove!

You both preach about "god" as though what you write should be taken seriously by others ... just because you both believe your own malarkey.

LEHRER: Your new book, The Root of Thought, is all about the power of glial cells, which actually make up nearly 90 percent of cells in the brain. What do glial cells do? And why do we have so many inside our head?

KOOB: Originally, scientists didn't think they did anything. Until the last 20 years, brain scientists believed neurons communicated to each other, represented our thoughts, and that glia were kind of like stucco and mortar holding the house together. They were considered simple insulators for neuron communication. There are a few types of glial cells, but recently scientists have begun to focus on a particular type of glial cell called the 'astrocyte,' as they are abundant in the cortex. Interestingly, as you go up the evolutionary ladder, astrocytes in the cortex increase in size and number, with humans having the most astrocytes and also the biggest. Scientists have also discovered that astrocytes communicate to themselves in the cortex and are also capable of sending information to neurons. Finally, astrocytes are also the adult stem cell in the brain and control blood flow to regions of brain activity. Because of all these important properties, and since the cortex is believed responsible for higher thought, scientists have started to realize that astrocytes must contribute to thought.

Note the words "Scientists have also discovered that astrocytes communicate to themselves in the cortex" and then I suggest you ask your selves if you still believe that humans are really all-that "special?"

I just watched a program where the woman speaking gave what I believe to be sound advise ... Never make an apology followed by the word "but."

If you really are sorry, the word "but" is simply a justification for behaving like an ass in the first place.
