<quoted text>Interesting post. See, Jesus was man. He felt emotions. He sacrificed his life for our sins. You don't think that it offended him, hurt him deeply when people (whom he died for) laughed at him, spit at him, condemned him to death, hurt by his friends who in THEIR humanness -abandoned him, etc..? He loves us and every time we sin, we hammer that nail in his hands , crucify or spit on him.
We were talking about God. God the Divine. God is not human. Jesus was human. There's the difference.

I assign them? We are created in His image and likeness so it isn't farfetched to think we have similar emotions. We know a lot about him through the bible. I don't have to assign any qualities to Him.
And yet it happens here daily. The bible is an ancient text translated into many languages, interpreted by many different people and heavy on metaphor and symbolism. Humans scripted the bible so we clearly know what offended the people of the times. God? Not so much. God was merely a manifestation of their somewhat primitive minds. God, like Zeus, was anything the people wanted him to be...loving, hateful, mass murdering, forgiving...anything.

Just make it up as you go along.
That's pretty much what I'm saying about the fundies here who assign there own emotions to their image of God. If you're against gay marriage or abortion then that's your right, but how convenient that in the end you take what YOU'RE against and tell us that it's because this allegedly omnipotent and punitive divine being is against it also, and so you're aligned together, with this all-powerful being, against those who disagree with your POV.

In your mind is bringing your Divine entity into it supposed to give more strength to your personal feelings on any given issue?

Cham, it's my understanding that a Catholic can marry outside the faith as long as there's a promise to raise the children as Catholics.
Yes, but I believe C's question was can TWO non-Catholics marry in a Catholic church. She can correct me if I'm wrong.

You don't think that is an angry post?
The Bible speaks of the child in the womb as a child and that He knows them before they are born.
Thou shall not murder is one of God's rules.
So you live by and are true to the word of the bible? Then you should be pro stoning. Your god ordered stoning for many circumstances,

And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him. Leviticus 24:16

f a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city. Deuteronomy 22:23-24

If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her ... and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: And the damsel's father shall say ... these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.... But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die. Deuteronomy 22:13-21

If there be found among you ... that ... hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them ... Then shalt thou ... tone them with stones, till they die. Deuteronomy 17:2-5
If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers ... thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die. Deuteronomy 13:5-10

If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother ... Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city ... And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die. Deuteronomy 21:18-21

They found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.... And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones.... And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses. Numbers 15:32-56

Wow...nice guy that god of yours. Total nut case with no common sense, not to mention a real bloodlust .

"I can't believe a former Catholic knows so little about the church like you do. Maybe if you knew more you would not have left. If someone is protestant and marrying a Catholic, yes they can get married, if a Catholic marries a Muslim or Jew, they have to get an ok from the Bishop. "
Why argue about something of which you have no knowledge?

Just identifying the pro aborts post for what they are. Hate filled.
Hate for unborn babies
Men
Women who change their minds and don't abort.
God
Christians, especially Catholics
Anyone who doesn't agree with you on any subject.
Women who give birth and wouldn't think of aborting an unplanned pregnancy for convenience.
The list goes on.

You spending your life on an abortion forum doesn't bother me at all. IMHO, you proaborts are all here to hear truth. Obviously, your conscience is bothering you. You NEED validation for what your supporting as choice.
Yeah, sASSy, you can keep telling yourself such nonsense if that's what makes you happy. Obviously, YOU need to do so, since it really DOES seem to bother you that prochoicers can post here whenever we want. I have no doubt that you would prefer we not post here at all, but we're staying whether you like it or not. Get used to it.

First of all, your assumption that condom use equates to no pregnancy, is totally ignorant.
God forbids sex outside of marriage. It was meant to be used within a marriage for the procreation of children(first and foremost). Promoting a sinful act is wrong, participating in a sinful act is wrong and suggesting a false sense of avoiding the natural result of that act is sinful. You went from giving into a sinful temptation to dismissing that sin and oping to rid yourself of the natural result of that act.
S.I.N.= Self-Inflicted NONSENSE

One of the greatest benefits of being CF (Catholicism-FREE) is not having to listen to constant and tedious preaching about so-called "sin."

Here are six other great benefits of the CF lifestyle:

2. No long and boring church services and sermons to ruin my Sundays

3. No hassles about the weekly drag known as "confession."

4. Not having to pop out more kids than I wanted because of Catholicism's anti-contraception doctrines

5. Not having to give any of my money to the church's blood-sucking hierarchy by the church-based extortion known as "tithing."

6. No worries about my child being a victim of one of the Catholic Church's vile pedophile priests

7. Freedom to decide for MYSELF on all important personal matters like sex, marriage, and reproduction

Personally, I find it a gross obscenity that a group of male clerics in dresses has the arrogance to believe it has the "right" to rule over millions of women's lives. Luckily for me, I can -- and DID -- kick all of this toxic church's baggage to the curb so it wouldn't ruin the quality of MY life. I celebrate that decision every day. For me, being Catholicism-Free (CF) ROCKS. It's wonderful how much freedom a woman has when she ISN'T mentally chained to a regressive and oppressive religious institution.

Okay, here is C's post from Monday.

http://www.topix.com/forum/news/abortion/T833...

"Who said that it did? Are you telling me that a Catholic priest would be willing to marry Baptists, Protestants, Muslims or Atheists in a Catholic Church? Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they do."

She did not specifically ask about two non-Catholics, but it seems that was what she was asking, from her words. If she was not, she can correct me.

Good morning Bit and all!

I was responding to this post:

"I'm not a former Catholic, nor did I ever claim to be. I had no idea a Catholic could marry someone not of their faith in the Catholic church. Can another Catholic, other than Knit, confirm this?"

My response to that question was factual.

Here's an equation for you...Your God created everything (according to your dogma), so your God created rats and parasites, and then your God's rats and parasites spread your God's Black Death, so your God was responsible for killing off an entire 3rd of Western Europe, so your God wiped out 20 million people.
And then that wasn't enough to satisfy your God's bloodlust so he wiped out 50 million people in 1918 via the Spanish flu.
Your God is the most prolific mass murderer in history so why continue to be a hypocrite and bitch about abortion? If your God gave a shit in the first place he wouldn't allow a conception that will end in miscarriage...ya dumbastard.
"my" dogma? what is my dogma? abortion is not an issue of god or religion. it's an issue of basic fudamental human rights. stop trying to justify conscious intentional killing by equating it to nature's biological rejection of a pregnancy, or disease caused by mutated bacteria. would you cease bitching about cold blooded murder or call for the abolishing of laws against murder beacause god "allows" thousands of others to die due to accident or disease?
you sound stupid. in addition to your bigotry.

And your buddy Dry Husk changes names minute to minute but manages to be a prolific bloviator, so maybe you should find better things to do besides piss and moan about non-issues...like maybe bathe once in awhile.
best defense is a good offense, eh? no where here do you deny her lack of a life and 24/7 presence on here.
i'm not on this forum that frequently at all. it's up to you if you choose to believe that or not. but that's neither here nor there. the fact is her perpetual presence here is a matter of record. that your reaction is to not acknowledge that reality but immediately jump to her defense is a noble if not predictable gesture, and something, as noted by her silence, she doesn't even care to do for herself.

catholic doctors are not concerned with pregnant women having heart attacks or cancer. They would just as soon they die as long as they can salvage the fetus.
now you speak for all catholic doctors? this is a flat out lie and a pretty sick statement. you're psychotic.
Yes I am equating the bodies rejection of pregnancy. The woman/girls brain is part of her body is it not? The problem you have is not caring about 500,000 spontaneous abortions, but caring deeply if a woman/girl uses her mind in the rejection of pregnancy.
so you would equate a strong, healthy 18 year old committing suicide with an 18 year old with an 18 year old who dies of cancer?
after all it was his mind that chose to kill himself and his mind is part of his body is it not? what kind of sick twisted brain conjures up such idiotic rationale?
Religion is misogynistic. I have read the book it screams off the pages. Not my problem that you bow down to it and refuse the truth. Bow all YOU want, don't expect the same from me? Comprende?
it's not just religion. the irrational fear of being persecuted by misogynists you see in your sleep "screams" off of all your posts. you need to get a grip.

Okay, I'll try to dumb it down enough for you. First of all, how many fetuses did YOU gestate? Was it EVER a possibility that YOU would abort any of your pregnancies, Witless?
even if it wasn't a possibility that she would choose to abort, her pregnancy would still be subject to miscarriage which is still an abortion and still at the behest and whim of the deity who "allows' it, as you screwballs are always pointing out. so yes, 100% of embryos/fetuses are subject to death at someone's whim.
"you" are going to dumb something down? lol

Yeah, well, I found a post from 3 weeks ago, where I characterized 'HuskerDu's post as "...hurling hate and spewing shit."

So there's that.
