You would do much better and be more creditable if you try and take your mind out of that gutter that you seem to love so well.
Well mike is getting off posting about molesting. He has a problem and evidently you do too. Mike is obsessed with the subject. OBSESSED and you never say anything to him that he is wrong. That says a lot. You come back at me saying I have a dirty mind, I think you do and I think you need to go talk to someone for help. Mike is wrong for posting about what happened many years ago. I think you need to look inward and find that this mike is mentally ill and you should not converse with him.in a friendly way. Many people will say you are getting your jollies from it.

Federal prison authorities. in the USA say that 74% of inmates are catholic/protestants,. Less than 1 % are atheists.
Statistics claim that over 16% of of Americans are non religious. About 50 million and growing quickly.
Its obvious non religious people have higher moral standards than those claiming to be the moral authority.
Go figure!
Not that I spent any long periods in jail...I have been there and do know that those statistics are bunk. For one, the prison population can't be put in any religious category. The majority may say they are "Christian". And their birth certificates may say "Baptist" or "Catholic", but their mindset is far from either of those. Most are so full of pride, they may as well be classified as "Pagan". The God they worship is money, power and so on. Sad but true. "Atheist" would be a more accurate label than "Christianity", because many re-designed God so may times it doesn't resemble anything but me, me me. Basically 'no god but self'.
Jail is just awful. I can't describe it. Really. Imagine going #2 in the toilet everyday in front of 3 or 4 people. There were no stalls. The toilet was in the middle of the floor for extra humiliation.

........ Your church in Chicago is under investigation by the police.
Have you not seen the news about the archdiocese of Chicago? Its all over the news.
Another catholic apologist. Another one in denial.

Keep giving them your money, they need it for lawsuits to pay victims.

Over $2 billion paid out worldwide. Something is terribly wrong! I am sure you agree.

Christians pray. Not only for help and things but to thank Him for who He is and all He has done. Do you suppose you chose the right fork in the road, made sound investment decisions, have perfect health, never used illegal drugs, didn't abuse alcohol, drive within the speed limit, have a loving family, have loving grand children, a dog and everyone is top notch with no problems because you are so wonderful and smart? Really? You need get over your wonderful self. Humble yourself and thank the God who created you for providing all of what you have now and will ever have in the future. No Christian I have ever met believes they have done it ALL on their own. If you believe you have done it all on your own then you don't need God....evidently you are God.

Does god really need anything? Mumbling a few man made phrases over and over beaming your thoughts to god does what? I would say spending your time doing good deeds for others would make god smile if he existed.
I was taught god created a divine plan for us. He checked his plan over, said it was a good plan and put it into operation. People come along start praying for something wanting god to change his divine plan. What is the point in making a plan for everything if every smuck coming along prays trying to change gods plan? That is not very nice.
People pray for their own selfish desires. Both opposing sports teams pray to win the big game. You have sewn it. When one team beats the other did god make that happen?
A young girl and her family pray for a sunny day for her wedding, yet 1 mile down the road farmers are praying for rain. What does god do? Does god change the weather forecast for the one who prays most sincerely?
A hurricane bares down on a town everyone is praying that the storm will go off course and blow someone else,s town away. What does god do?
People pray to be taller, to be slimmer, to have bigger boobs, to have smaller boobs, to pass the big exam, to get the promotion, to win the game, to have a boyfriend, to have a girlfriend, to be healthy, every day BILLIONS of prayers beemed to god everybody wanting something or something to change. Most people pray on Sunday. Gods day off. That's not very nice!
There are over 1500 religious beliefs. Are the other 1499 wrong and you are right? Don't each of them believe they are right and everyone else wrong?
I have had a very good life without praying, except when I was very young because I had to.
You are nothing more than a slim bucket. Don't respond to my posts and I will do you the same favor.

It had nothing whatsoever about the very fitting paragraph of psychiatric findings I compared to your behavior, and you know it.
You are a manipulating blatant liar now as well.
Whatever theory you find special to you is still a theory, a belief, a hypotheses. So what's your big deal that you have to offer me to make me over in your image???

You stated that you don't know the answers ... didn't you??? Then why are you trying to pretend that those professionals, or YOU HAVE answers???

And just so there is no confusion about what I believe ... I don't believe that the Jesus-myth was based on any truth whatsoever.

According to all theologians there was not one word written in Jesus' own hand anywhere on earth.

And that is VERY suspicious in deed.

Within common sense theology,(if there possibly ever was any common sense IN theology whatsoever)... a man who came to save all humans from hell in a hereafter would have a lot to say about his own life ... and THAT did not occur.

Total nonsense.

No version of the Gospel of Mark was inspired, yet its historical significance is undeniable except for those who themselves are in denial.

I think that is hindsight, with a prejudice. People expand upon a certain presumption, in this case, that it was Jerusalem versus the world....One must consider Jerusalem was really a backwater religious center for the Jews, in context to the time, surrounded by nations, and part of the Roman Empire....
Just to give my view. Matthew was written for the Jews in mind, Mark for the slaves, Luke for Gentiles, and John for theology. That is a very condensed view.
Of course it's hindsight.

With prejudice?

Hardly.

I have no dog in this race.

I've written on this before:

http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/TIA4MRN...

As for Jerusalem being a backwater, nothing could be further from the truth, at least when it came to Judaism and the Jesus movement in the first 3/4ths of the first century.

For those religions at that time, it was the center of the universe.

Incorrect.

According to the last major revision to the Gospel of John, the addition of the Pericope Adulterae, Jesus wrote with his finger on the ground when challenging the scribes and Pharisees who brought an adulteress to him.

Did that actually happen? Doesn't matter. It is a favorite passage for Christian theologians.

Makes 'em feel all warm and fuzzy inside believing Jesus ain't all that worried about their own peccadillos.

Mike, all you do is post about priests molesting. Makes me wonder about you. I wonder if you were a priest at one time who was caught molesting and now serves time. Many prisons let inmates use the computers now. Or you are a mental patient. using a computer. I think your nuts. My Church has dealt with the problem, Pope Benedict has dismissed 385 priests. You pointed out he did nothing. I think you are sick. What happened in Chicago was many years ago. You don't need to post anymore about it. Why don't you concentrate on school boards who insist on letting teachers who view porn at school stay on and keep on teaching. this is in public schools . Or all the Orthodox priests, the rabbis and ministers who have been caught recently. Naw, you have to focus on priests and what they did twenty or more years ago. I guess that's when you were caught, right?
