Don't repeat the '60s, Sisters!

Indeed. ALL Christians are obligated to support the Bible's many commands against all homosexual behavior.

Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood guiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9 (NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
1 Kings 14:24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
Deuteronomy 23:17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.
1 Kings 15:12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
1 Kings 22:46 And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.
2 Kings 23:7 And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.

The interference of the church in politics has always been insidious.. They are supposed to keep away from mundane matters either in peace or war; but, in fact, they've always meddled as much as outward appearances allowed.. "Coming out" and showing their true colors is only their latest strategy.. rare, but not unique in history.. They know that getting back in favor with the sadly ignorant and superstitious majority of their followers is a sure thing.. no matter what atrocity or injustice they support at any given time.. A few "miracles" or fancy sermons will do it..

The Catholic Church is the world's longest reigning empire. Another corporation pushing it's own agenda even destroying other people's lives in the process just so to achieve it's world supremacy and ideologies.

So, if the Pope or Bishop's want the Nun's to follow the proper political view of the Church, shouldn't the Catholic Church then lose their tax-exemption status?

Congress shall not make any law establishing a religion. This is the first sentence of the first amendment which is the citizens first right to be free from religious law. Religion has no authority to interfere with U.S. law. Your [email protected] bible has no authority over any law or any individual in the U.S.. If you want to believe this garbage that's your right keep it in your private home and church.

America is not about your hate, discrimination and bondage of minorities. The context of America through our constitution is that all law abiding citizens have the same measure of liberty and justice. If you don't like liberty and justice for all then get the [email protected] out of my country or simply shut the [email protected] up.

Oh, DAVID MOORE of PEKIN, how can you say such things after your wife caught you with that man in the same house as your children were sleeping? My my. LOVE the photo of you in SAN FRANCISCO in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. Why didn't you take a photo on Castro and 18th, since you LIVE on S. 18th in PEKIN. What a wild coincidence!

Nuns are spiritually married to Christ, of course they should follow Christ's teachings which IS the Catholic Church.

Okay, so where does Christ tell them that they have to be "politically correct?"

The RCC still needs to lose it's tax exempt status, regardless.

I never stated that they shouldn't follow Christ.....but Christ doesn't have POLITICAL VIEWS and the Catholic Church does......thus they should lose their precious tax-exempt status!!!

You mean and advocate for the legalization of polygamy since there are, what, a couple million nuns in the world and this would make Jesus a bigamist, right?

Actually, the nuns ARE following the teachings of Christ. It's the Vatican who isn't.

They ceased to be followers of Yeshua long since, back before they were co-opted by Constantine. After that, they commenced building their earthly kingdom which came to be known as "christendom".
