I did? I wanted to know if a dog could be side-tracked away from the interest of sniffing out heretics if the dog was horny and wanted sex with another dog???

..."As the most recent UN report on the matter highlights, the Vatican and its various member organizations continue to do everything in their power to stonewall, deny and intimidate in relation to their encouragement and sponsorship of pedophiles and other abusers within their ranks - this after having had centuries to do the right thing. And contrary to your rose-colored view, the latest Pope is just more of the same. "

It was not Atheists that burned humans at the stake.

Common sense ought to resonate with your conscience that killing and robbing is not beneficial to others.

The "secular" rules are based on Judeo-Christian principles. And it was the guilty priests and bishops themselves who shamed the Church.

......Michael says, the very priests who shamed the church, were put into place by the bishops who shamed the church, and these shameful bishops were put into place by the popes who were put into place, by the voting cardinals that the catholic church says were all guided by the holy spirit.

PBS’ 48th HIT ON CATHOLIC CHURCH
February 25, 2014

“Secrets of the Vatican” marks the 48th time PBS has addressed sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. Though this problem is practically non-existent in the Catholic community these days, and is rampant in the public schools, as well as in the Orthodox Jewish community, PBS has devoted a combined total of ZERO episodes on both.

All the contrived melodrama is there: ominous dark images; dramatic music; a deep voice-over; bleak hallways; shadowy figures locking doors as a boy enters the room; the words “Power,”“Money,” and “Sex” flashing about, etc. The predictable villain: Pope Benedict XVI. Ironically, he did more than anyone to check this problem, but facts don’t matter when Jason Berry is involved.

A dissident Catholic, Berry is a co-producer of this show; he was also featured in Alex Gibney’s film,“Mea Maxima Culpa.”***Indeed, tonight’s hit job is nothing more than a retread of Gibney’s propaganda: a New Orleans reporter who previewed it says,“this film reminded me of ‘Mea Maxima Culpa.’” These guys can’t go to the sewer too often.***

Please state your source that confirms his existence.

Please don't projection what you think onto me. I've asked this in the past, and I will ask again. Please stop making up things about me. You have no knowledge of my life, except what I post.

June VanGollum, it's a good bet that atheists Stalin and Mao slaughtered more in 50 years than all Christian and other religious in the previous 19 centuries.

Common sense to a relativist atheist is whatever they say it is. There exists no moral ethical basis for common sense, conscience or any act of positive actions towards another human being. All we are according to the atheist is a smarter animal. As such, your creed should be survival of the fittest. I take what I want, when I want as long as I'm smarter and stronger than the next guy, and I can use any means to do it. That is your creed no?

Answers to questions like this are not decided upon yours or my "opinions"! It is a matter of biblical and historical apostolic Moral TRUTH ! Atheists, agnostics and Protestant bible only fundamentalist live a life of "what I think is truth". The One True Apostolic Catholic Church does not, has not, nor will ever base it's TRUTH of doctrine and teachings on " taking a vote" but on 2000 years of biblical and historical TRUTHS that have handed down from the Early Catholic Christian Church beginning with Christs first Church at Antioch, The truth of doctrine of Jesus Christs One TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church is "not a democracy" but a matter of "obedience to the Truth of the True Teachings and True interpretation of the bible form the early Church a Fathers who were inspired by God Himself it compile it, write it and interpret it in 382, 393, and 397 AD!!!!

Catholics rules are that priests are to be celibate and live holy lives and bishops are to turn over priests who break these rules with minors to the civil authorities. A very small percentage broke those rules. Yeah, that was wrong. Anything else Mike?

who is Crabbi Oxblow?
A non-Catholic Protestant who doesn't believe in all of what Jesus taught, and refuses to admit that this is true.

There are other traits that he has expressed in his posts, that clearly indicates or suggests that he isn't an honest so-called "Christian" - but then again, I haven't seen a whole lot of that type ("honest Christian") in quite sometime.

How did we get from your inability to demonstrate that I misquoted the Bible to this. Let's stick with the subject at hand. If I misquoted the Bible you should be able to provide evidence. You haven't so far. However, I'm not perfect and sometimes make mistakes. Please provide evidence so that I can correct my misquote if it exists. I take misquoting the Bible seriously, just as I take misunderstanding the message of the Bible seriously.

“Sometimes negative news does come out, but it is often exaggerated and manipulated to spread scandal. Journalists sometimes risk becoming ill from coprophilia and thus fomenting coprophagia, which is a sin that taints all men and women, that is, the tendency to focus on the negative rather than the positive aspects.”

Yeah. I wish it wasn't necessary, but there's far too many relativists out there. Where do you think humanity would be right now if there were no rules? I mean, how does an atheist tell another atheist he'd rather he not rob him and shoot him in the head?
....there were forms of character rules long before the Jews arrived.
..john 3:12.....not as Cain the wicked and slew his brother Abel. His own works were evil and his brother righteous, so there were rules/regulations long before the Jews.
..genesis. 13:13. The men of sodom were evil and sinners.
....how can you have sin without rules to correct sin?
...,I am sure all the other human sects back in the day had forms of right from wrong.

She had her azz handed to her,and you know that an't what she expected.

lol. You cite the Hebrew scriptures to refute Jewish rules. I'm sorry Mike, but you're really having an off day.

Hey Mike, what set of "rules" does an atheist such as yourself utilize when attempting to determine the morality of an action you might take?
