See what I mean June about controlling and brainwashing Catholics...look what this Cardinal is saying....might as well be saying to a person like me.

'Dolan: Those who ID as ex-Catholics a Church issue'

"New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan says the biggest pastoral problem facing the Roman Catholic Church is the growing number of people who identify as former Catholics.

Dolan says those who identify as ex-Catholics would amount to the second-largest domination in the U.S.

But Dolan says Roman Catholicism holds that Christ and the Church are one and can't be separated. He says Catholics can no more leave the Church than they can leave their family.

Dolan says, "Catholicism is in our DNA. It is in our bones."

Dolan was speaking to a crowd of about 4,000 people in Milwaukee, where he's giving the archdiocese's annual Pallium Lecture. It is a lecture series on spirituality that he started while serving as archbishop of Milwaukee from 2002 to 2009."

All theologians don't WANT to give up their followers. Without followers, the theologians would have NOTHING to GAIN.

And the Cardinal, as does the pope believes their selves to BE theologians in (of course) direct contact with none other than "GOD!"

Hinduism grants absolute and complete freedom of belief and worship. Hinduism conceives the whole world as a single family that deifies the one truth, and therefore it accepts all forms of beliefs and dismisses labels of distinct religions which would imply a division of identity.
All ancient religions had and still have hells in their dogmas.

That is how theologians in all religions controlled people. Fear and more fear.

Many people that follow the eastern religions are under the illusion that Buddhist (for instance) does not have a pecking order.

I suggest you compare the life of the dalai lama with the life of a supposed "untouchable."

Matched only by the palace of the Dalai Lama in Tibet, the pope’s palace is one of the world’s biggest. The pope lives in an apartment on the top floor facing St. Peter’s Square.

All theologians started their own religions for their own comforts. They wanted and needed followers to believe that they had answers of how to attain eternal bliss and in turn avoid hells in hereafters.

If you no longer believe them, they will be disappointed, as you will no longer idolize their words as truth and you will no longer send them money.

That would not be a hardship for you ... but for them it indeed would be a hardship.

The words in their books would no longer hold power over your thoughts. You would no longer believe that devils exist to tempt you, or that a devil would want your soul for HIS keeping in a hereafter.

You would be free of such thoughts and in turn you would disappoint the many theologians.

I suggest there has to be a better explanation than what stemmed from religion of why the universe exists, and that no explanation is better than an explanation that makes no sense whatsoever.

A creator of perfection could not create imperfection ... and suffering of all forms of life can not under any circumstances be aligned to perfection.

Religion makes no sense.

You will see the lies when you WANT to see them.

Had Jesus lived, his ministry would have consisted of PURE unadulterated Judaism and nothing BUT Judaism.

And note the word "astronomer."

To pretend that Christianity was supported by a Jew was and IS a monu-mental lie.

A Jew would NOT support any religion BUT Judaism.

Wake up people ... or not. The onus is on YOU.

The idea that Jews were "ordered" from Rome, while the ex-Jew Christians were allowed to stay ... grow in numbers, and ultimately be the ONLY religion allowed in the Roman empire ... indicates that the Roman emperors of that certain era, such as the emperor Constantine hated the Jews and favored the ex-Jew Christians.

The idea that the emperor Constantine converted to Catholicism indicates that he was NOT one iota in favor of Judaism. And he was not an "impartial" emperor.

History in ANY era went the way of those who held the power ... and Constantine in that era held the power ... so in turn ... the ex-Jew Catholics favored BY Constantine became a power to be "reckoned with."

I suggest that religion never had anything in common with gods supporting the religions.

That was all a MASK ... and for those "ends" ... a very convenient mask!

According to all Christian theology ... Jesus was born into Judaism, practiced Judaism, preached Judaism, and was a Jew right up to his crucifixion.

So it follows within that "reasoning" that Pontius Pilate killed Jesus for being "faithful" to Judaism.

Why Christians can't see the lies is only because the promise of salvation blurs what otherwise would be CLEAR vision.

I am so at peace to be out from under the spell of all religion.
Theologians with their nonsense confused me for most of my life ... but they will not be allowed to confuse me any more ... as I have set my self free from all of their mental bondage.
Yes June... I think most people here would describe you as "at peace" and "not confused" and "not self-centered" and "free from mental bondage."

Ink must be so flattered that you are doing the same thing you did with Bitner. You tried desperately to tie me (and Svaha) in with pagans/wiccans so you could ridicule us too and instead of asking what we believe, you try to TELL us what we believe. If you for a moment think you are any less arrogant than religious people, you ought to read your own sanctimonious nonsense once in a while.

I'll chalk it up to wishful thinking on Dolan's part. He's wrong. I can say without hesitation that I'm an ex-Catholic, and it was NEVER in my DNA. Also, unfortunately, many people leave their families, or their families leave them. Dolan needs a reality check.

You did before I started to study Wicca and the fact that Gerald Gardner was in deed as homophobic as were any of the popes.

You used to call me "friend" back in the days when we were hammering the Christians that were homophobic ... but those days are long gone aren't they Svaha?

I wonder if a feminist Neopaganist is any relation to a theologian.

She certainly writes many books about the supposed goddess and other manufactured myths of the sort.

She has also gained a massive following of young adults and money from her habitual authorship.

Back in the day, I suggest that her title would have been theologian, had she survived the male theologians that proclaimed gods didn't give messages to mere subservient women.

Starhawk (born Miriam Simos on June 17, 1951) is an American writer and activist.[1] She is known as a theorist of feminist Neopaganism, and ecofeminism.
