“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”

No one can follow you because you can't follow the subject. I did say civil marriage.

I don't care either. Civil marriage has become meaningless anyway.
It is only a way to divide up the spoils later.
No, YOU can't follow the subject. We were talking about marriage, period. Not civil marriage.

If you insist that the subject was civil marriages, and mine is not a civil marriage, what would be the point?

Are we talking about civil marriages or not?

Make up what's left of your mind.

Humor

The Delta plane leaves LaGuardia Airport under the control of a Jewish captain; his co-pilot is Chinese.

It's the first time they've flown together and an awkward silence between the two seems to indicate a mutual dislike.

Once they reach cruising altitude, the Jewish captain activates the auto-pilot, leans back in his seat, and mutters,

'I don't like Chinese..'

'No rike Chinese?' asks the co-pilot,'why not?'

'You people bombed Pearl Harbour, that's why!'

'No, no', the co-pilot protests,'Chinese not bomb Peahl Hahbah! That Japanese, not Chinese.'

'Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese....doesn't matter, you're all alike!'

There's a few minutes of silence.'I no rike Jews!' the co-pilot suddenly announces.

'Oh yeah, why not?' asks the captain.

'Jews sink Titanic!' says the co-pilot.

'What? You're insane! Jews didn't sink the Titanic!' exclaims the captain,'It was an iceberg!'

Iceberg, Goldberg, Greenberg, Rosenberg,...no mattah...all fukin same.

The priests pumped information from the husbands and wives in the confessionals to later use their own words against them as punishment from the ones that made the rules.

From the book, Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven … Uta Ranke-Heinemann

Penitentials and Punishment Tables

The Church condemned as birth control not only the potions people took, but also various kinds of intercourse in which conception was avoided: coitus interruptus as well as anal and oral sex. The penances for these three forms of intercourse were enormous. The sentences meted out by the individual penitentials vary widely, but one is struck by the fact that anal and oral intercourse (coitus interruptus is mentioned less frequently) were often punished more severely than abortion, indeed more severely than premeditated murder. The authors of these books evidently thought that certain sexual practices were more reprehensible than killing a human being.

The popes were encouraged to study history from the ones known as the church "fathers," or "doctors" of the church.

It's no wonder the pope is back in the middle ages with his middle-age theology. He can't move very far past it, because he will make the doctors of the church appear as ignorant fools rather than messengers of "GOD."

It might take time ... but ultimately webs of lies come back to haunt the tellers of the lies.

The idea that any god gives a rat's ass about how humans have sex, is ludicrous ... "beyond belief."

From the book, Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven … Uta Ranke-Heinemann

Penitentials and Punishment Tables

The Anglo-Saxon penitential (put together between 690 and 710) of Theodore, a Greek monk from ST. Pal’s hometown of Tarsus, who became the archbishop of Canterbury and is considered the actual organizer of the English church, sets the penalty for oral intercourse at seven or fifteen years or even a lifetime of penance, for abortion three times forty days, and for premeditated murder seven years. The Anglo-Saxon penitential of the Pseudo-Egbert (ca. 800) lays down seven years (or lifelong) penance for oral intercourse, ten years for anal intercourse, seven or ten years for abortion, and seven years for premeditated murder.

Other animal forms were on earth LONG before humans, and no gods were necessary for their survival or their extinction.

Maybe the only thing that will rid the earth of silly religions is if humans also become extinct!

My guess is, it would be no loss to earth, as nature would continue on in one animal form or another.

Dirty old men of the hierarchy delved into the private of others, as they pretended a "god" wanted to know the answers to the questions.

Penitentials and Punishment Tables

From the eighth century on confessors were directed to ask expressly about birth control. The most detailed evidence of such questioning comes from the Decree of Burchard of Worms. Burchard instructs confessors to ask the questions “gently and kindly.” He has many questions posed to the husbands he asks:“Have you coupled with your wife or another woman from behind like dogs?

So, you can see from the history that homosexuals were not the only ones penalized for disobeying the rules of the hierarchy.

Not even CLOSE!

However, from what I have studied so far, ONLY homosexuals were put to death for breaking the rules of the hierarchy concerning consensual sex.

More questions asked of husbands and wives, and the penalties that followed. It goes on and on...
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>

Have you coupled with your wife during menstruation, then ten days on bread and water. If your wife went to church after having a baby, before being purified, then she is to do penance for as long a time as she should have stayed away from church. And if you have coupled with her during this time, then you will do twenty days of penance on bread and water. If you have coupled with your wife after the child stirred in her womb or during the forty days before delivery, then you will do twenty days of penance on bread and water. Have you stained yourself with your wife during Lent? Then you have to do forty days penance on bread and water. If it happened while you were drunk, twenty days on bread and water.

It's almost as though some of those men felt if they weren't coming up with new ideas, their jobs would be perceived as unnecessary.

The more they wrote, the more nonsense appeared on the religious scene, as the most ridiculous rules were claimed as being "inspired" by "GOD."

My guess is, as long as the pope puts Augustine and Aquinas on pedestals of knowledge, there will be no hope of him opening his mind to the acceptance that consensual sex ought to be "enjoyed" ... homosexual or otherwise.

Augustine’s sexual pessimism, which was for the most part intensified by the Responsum of Pope Gregory the Great (“Sensual pleasure can never be without sin”), dominated the eleventh to thirteenth centuries, the time of Scholasticism,“the Golden Age of theology,” as it is called. The zenith of Scholasticism is thought to have been reached in Thomas Aquinas (d. 1274), who to this day ranks with Augustine as the second grand authority on sexual issues.

You deflect with a question that's got nothing to do with it.

Once again, if you'd paid attention to my very clear explanation of mythology, and how it relates to Deity, you'd already know the answer to this question. YOU choose to ignore what I said. That's not my fault.

You made a false accusation. I've done no such thing.

The church "fathers" or "doctors" might have been known as "scholastics" and "theologians" ... but I perceive they were mere mortals full of arrogant fantasies that amounted to nothing but stupidity.

Like Augustine, the Early Scholastics felt that in pre-Christian times mankind had multiplied enough to complete the number of saints in heaven.
