The following must have made even the confused god even more confused about who was ruling his roost.

Who was the only man to become pope three times?

Pope Benedict IX (1032—1044), who first became pope at the age of 14, was the only man to be pope three times. The first time he abdicated was to marry. After returning as pope for a second period in office, he abdicated for a second time when he sold his papal seat to his godfather. Then he became pope again. All this took place before Benedict reached the age of 30.

"Note that this doesn't mean a given prelate can't have what we call liberal or conservative instincts, and I have my reservations about Pope Francis, with his being a South American Jesuit. But the point is that when the media anxiously wait for a "liberal" pope that will deliver the Church to evil, they don't realize that while such a man could exercise liberal tendencies, he could only do so outside the context of definitive teaching on faith and dogma. THERE IS NO "AMENDMENT PROCESS" FOR THE COMMANDMENTS AND THEIR COROLLARIES."

Hasn't your imaginary god got better things to do than listen to the ramblings of bumbling old men ... such as putting some food in the mouths of starving babies?

We've all asked ourselves those questions, June (or we should have). You aren't breaking new ground here.

Why don't you say a prayer for the person you're mourning for. It will help you both.

I suggest you ask a person in severe pain if prayer helped.

Ask a child that is being abused by her father, as happened to my friend who prayed and prayed and received no help whatsoever.

You need to wake up and stop smelling roses and instead put your fingers on the thorns.

Then you will stop preaching about prayer and start yelping to another human that you hope WILL help you in your time of need.

I suggest she go to the streets of Calcutta and allow her self the privilege of seeing "god's" handi-work and before long she might be praying as did Mother Teresa to die and go to "god."

You people are dreamers, and your dreams are plain silly.

My guess is, that most people who were burned to death at the stake ended up begging for mercy from humans and the invisible god ... yet their devotion did nothing to move the men of religion, or the supposed god to give them help in their time of need.

How callous, how insensitive to human suffering are those who can stand and watch people in horrific pain ... and do NOTHING.

Mother Teresa was one such insensitive woman. She watched babies starve to death and bragged of using money to build more convents to in turn train nuns for the cult of Catholicism.

It should be unbelievable, but it occurred, and all in the name of LOVE.

And the people keep flocking to and praising members of the over-indulged hierarchy for what they teach.

These people were ALL Christians who came to "celebrate" the hanging of a young lad who was accused of nothing more than picking pockets.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

The following if from the book titled “ONE CANADA … memoirs of the right honorable John G. Diefenbaker.”

Great-grandfather told my mother a story of life in the early 1830s which I have always found instructive. The greatest celebration of all in Upper Canada,(my note- now in the province of Ontario) one that brought all the people together within a reasonable distance, was a public execution. He himself had been present at one. The pioneers arrived a day ahead for the festivities. With whiskey selling at less than a dollar a gallon, liquor became a source not only of exhilaration but of inspiration for the assembled, enabling them the more to enjoy the spectacle. The condemned man was a teenager whose offence had been pickpocketing. The death penalty was then imposed for some fifty or sixty offences. The law was less harsh than it had been: no longer were prisoners drawn and quartered. But the theory was that punishment must be imposed so that the criminal would understand the gravity of the sin he had committed. Also, deterrence was then the argument and still is among those who advocate capital punishment. On this occasion, the young man made a speech in the traditional style of condemned criminals in Upper Canada: he admitted his guilt and asked forgiveness. He was not restricted to a fixed length of time, since time really meant nothing. While he was making his testimony of guilt, four of the assembled pioneers found that their pockets had been picked.

I do thrive on ego, but I don't pretend my motivation comes from holiness.

Right-wing religion (and there is no other type of religion) is not for me.

What makes you think I haven't suffered greatly, or am not doing so now? As it happens there are people on this board who were abused as children by their father, as well as those with serious physical illness, and some with emotional suffering. Some with all of the above.

You presume much, June. I feel sorry for you.

If your prayer was answered, the god would have taken your pain away, and you wouldn't have had any more pain.

You can't play the theology every which way but "right."

Glad you're enjoying the article! Here's more:

"So while many in the media are trying to agitate against the Church, their relativistic understanding would preclude their covering her properly even if they wanted to. They're used to a world of provisional beliefs, such as liberalism and conservatism, which lack defined doctrine or even an institution that could credibly render such and thus are defined only by their adherents. This is much as how we learned the ways of ducks not by consulting a Duck bible or catechism, but by observing their behavior.

But the Church doesn't quack like a duck. She has a magisterium (teaching office) that has set certain doctrines in stone, and a Catholic's relationship with respect to them is neither conservative nor liberal. The relevant terms are orthodox and heterodox or, to use a less fashionable word, heretical."

God gave humans free will, the choice to love Him or not, that's why he allowed them to be tempted. Otherwise Adam and Eve would have been mere robots, incapable of having a truly loving relationship with their Creator. Have you ever considered that? What would you prefer? To have a choice or not?
Maybe. God cast a third of the angels out of Heaven because they rebelled when Satan made his challenge.
Angels had a choice but God will destroy those who don't follow His commands.
Would you sentence your baby child to a life of hardship simply because he tested the limits?
Your child would love you but you would be condemning that child to death for an infringement.
Bears some thought.

I agree that killing those they labeled as heretics and witches WAS set in stone.
