As you know, there is a difference between Catholicism and Protestantism within the Christian faith. This split occurred when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church in Wittenburg, Germany, against the corruption in the Catholic church. Essentially, Martin Luther was calling them out on their heresies in teachings, and corruptions in the community. When somebody in power is called to task on their behavior, it's resented. Sure enough, Martin Luther found himself excommunicated and branded an outlaw.
Sadly, Catholicism still tries to speak for all of Christianity, even though not everyone considers Catholicism the legitimate voice of Christianity.
Sexual pleasure isn't a sin. The reason that sex is supposed to stay within marriage is to bond a husband and wife physically, spiritually, and emotionally. It's supposed to protect the wife from being used as a physical object for the arbitrary enjoyment of biological sensations by others.
Our pastor stood in the pulpit one Sunday and in his sermon he mentioned the word "sex", but not in a negative manner. There was an audible, collective gasp of shock and apprehension within the congregation. He stopped his sermon and looked at everyone for a few seconds. Then he said something I'll never forget. Paraphrased, it went something like this:
"What? I'm not supposed to say the word 'sex' from the pulpit? How do you think you all came to be here? You didn't blink into existence 30 seconds ago. Didn't God say to Adam and Eve go forth and multiply? If He didn't then why are you here anyway? And if he did, aren't we obeying His instructions to procreate? Sex is great so long as it is within marriage to protect the sanctity of marriage, and prevent exploitation of our fellow man."
Awesome huh?
I think he did a admirable job.
He moved the congregation and you. ;)
MLK had that ability.

Then again... so did Robert Green Ingersoll

Robert Green "Bob" Ingersoll (August 11, 1833 – July 21, 1899) was a Civil War veteran, American political leader, and orator during the Golden Age of Freethought, noted for his broad range of culture and his defense of agnosticism. He was nicknamed "The Great Agnostic."

Many of Ingersoll's speeches advocated freethought and humanism, and often poked fun at religious belief. For this the press often attacked him, but neither his views nor the negative press could stop his rising popularity. At the height of Ingersoll's fame, audiences would pay $1 or more to hear him speak, a giant sum for his day.

In a lecture entitled "The Great Infidels," he attacked the Christian doctrine of Hell: "All the meanness, all the revenge, all the selfishness, all the cruelty, all the hatred, all the infamy of which the heart of man is capable, grew blossomed, and bore fruit in this one word--Hell."

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_G._Inge...

In 2005, a popular edition of Ingersoll's work was published by Steerforth Press. Edited by the Pulitzer Prize-winning music critic Tim Page, "What's God Got to Do With It: Robert Ingersoll on Free Speech, Honest Talk and the Separation of Church and State" brought Ingersoll's thinking to a new audience.

I enjoyed your Titan story!
Did you like the Lincoln Kennedy comparison?

On a completely different unrelated topic but for the curious... Of which you are...

I strongly recommend a documentary by Charles Ferguson entitled "inside job".
A real eye-opener into the debacle that was 2008.

I knew you'd come up with some scripture!

Let's take baby steps first shall we?

Crack open a Gideons and check this out.

Today’s scholars can only use the known, that is historical reigning Roman Emperors as a reference in determining dates.

So, since your Bible clearly and unambiguously claims that Jesus was born during the reign of Herod the King, then he, Jesus, had to have been born no later than 4 B.C.

Irony meter goes boom!

Jesus could only have been born a minimum of four years before the birth of Jesus?

After you stop laughing though, consider the import of this paradox.

Gosh... I almost forgot your scriptures for the day...

But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.--Luke 9:27

Hmm, Where are they now? Are they still standing in line - like it is at Disney - waiting on "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride?
This appears to be a lie, Again where are they?

SE Colorado now. Long ways from casinos and cheap cigarettes.

I didn't go for the gambling, I went for the buffet. Don't think I ever spent more than $10 on the machines, even in Vegas. I was a penny machine player. I bleed slow.

But I have a sad story to tell today. Picked up a quick pick lotto ticket at the store a couple of days ago and plumb forgot about it until today. The drawing is tonight. Haven't got a clue where I put it or what I did with it. Of course it would've been the big one.:-)

I loved the Lincoln/Kennedy comparison. I had heard that before. Both of my parents are historians at the professional (albeit local) level. You're right, "Inside Job" was notable for it's approach.
