Again, you're calling for the direct involvement of a religion into politics, which you declared anathema on another thread.

God has been causing me bad luck for years. No matter how much I prayed to Him, he always lets bad shit happen to me....so I have no pity on the Catholic church. They are getting just what they deserve for preaching all their lies and hypocrisy.

I went to Catholic school, and they told me that God would look out for me. Bullshit! My life has been a zoo because of God, so if the Church suffers scandal, more power to them who bring the church down!

And the collection box should be banned....people putting hard earned dollars in there so they can pay off lawsuits for priests that are molesting boys??? Let the %$#@ church go broke.

We started with you defending a claim that Turkson publicy supported a law allowing gay people to be executed.
Now, your argument is centered around the absence of evidence that he has anything to say about it specifically.
Long way to go here, snyper.
Your right, the current Pope belonged to a group formed to support them.

Turkson says he understands why Uganda supports hatred of homosexuality. His silence and lack of condemnation speaks volumes. Behavior which is so un-Christ like his will cost him dearly on his spiritual journey. It is clear what he supports and for that he will pay.

No wonder the pope is resigning - he even realizes he's daffy.

Oh - weren't gays responsible for the sinking of the Titanic? I'm surprised nobody's come up with that one!

THEY claim the prerogative to do so. I'm commenting on their scorecard.

Well, it was clear that you made a false assertion about Turkson, thus you run to the Nazi card with Ratzinger.

That's abundantly clear.

Now, you deem to lecture us about "un-Christ like" behavior after being caught lying.

Brilliant.

Get a Topix account then we can discuss whatever you wish. Till then you're nothing but a troll, and not a very clever one at that.

Registering on Topix gives me license to make false claims and then avoid accountability if I'm called on it?

If so, I know why you registered.

Nor registering is often the first sign of a troll. Check your mirror and you'll find out.

You wouldn't know clever if it bit you on the ass.
