How do you know whom I hate (or if I hate anyone at all?) Hatred is a terribly uncomfortable feeling and I won't waste valuable time on such horribly negative emotions. Life is way too short for that. I don't even hate you at all, no matter how much you insult me.

The Church also retried Joan d'Arc afte her being put to death as a heretic. Her name was cleared. She is now considered to be a saint. The Cadaver Trial took place in the late 800's. The question begs a large so what? Has the Church tried any cadavers lately?

I didn't know that about Joan of Arc. What do you mean by "so what"? The fact that they did it at all tells me a lot about their sense of "reasoning"...ridicu lous. And PLEASE remember I'm criticizing church laws, not YOU.

Pax, it goes to show the church (among others) has done some pretty stupid things. And what's the point of putting a corpse on trial anyway? Can it affect that dead person's soul in the afterlife? I think it's ridiculous and I can't imagine, even in those days, people taking it seriously.

Okay - negative icon givers - what you want me to say is your church never did a thing wrong...you just go ahead and keep believing that.

You want to criticize the Church of today using something that took place in the Middle Ages. Fine go with it. You may as well critcize doctors for using blood letting to cure sickness in the Middle Ages as their "reasoning" is just as "ridiculous". The "so what" covers that what took place that long ago is old history. Bring it up if it's happened lately and then you have a real beef with the Church.

If they didn't take it seriously it wouldn't have happened. One has to be careful or at least very knowledgable about how people thought 800 years ago to judge what they were thinking. Do you know that during the Black Plague many priests and nuns that would nurse the dying when no one else would only to then die themselves? Sure the church has done some dumb things. It has also done some heroic things.

Pax, think what you will but your church is NOT the "one, true religion". It never was, tho I believed it for years.

Every religion has done some good and some bad. There will never come a time when the whole world is catholic -- is that how you think it should be?

They're STILL in the Middle Ages! I was very disillusioned in the past - can you prove some of the outrageous claims they would have their entire flock believe? I'm a REALIST.
