Those Poor Poor Nuns most of them are basically sex toys/punching bags for the priests
and the ones who aren't: preform ritual occult practices were they commune with the spirits of the dead (IE: Demon Imposters!)

Women no longer live in a fog of oppression. The Christian "religion" is going to fall eventually. Women have been oppressed for long enough. Even the whipping girls like Sara Palin wouldn't want their daughters completely enslaved...if they have souls.

Yes. Yes. Yes. Women are People. Yes. Keep trying to deny it. It's going to hit you where it hurts, eventually.

Women are people! The fact that someone actually thinks I'm "clueless" for stating the obvious is just proof that feminism is still very much needed!
Women are people, not broodmares and toys!

And with this, the RCC has proven it is not dedicated to charity and jesus's teachings, but a political entity led by a foreign head of state whose mission is to interfere with the laws and lives of american citizens.

There is absolutely no reason why it--or any other sect--should get a free ride on taxes.

I wish some one in Washington would dare to speak the words that"As long as the RCC is going to meddle in politics. It is time to review their 501c non profit status."

**sigh* no one in this election cycle seems to be willing to say it aloud.

1965 there were 180,000 nuns in america that did all the heavy lifting of the church.

Today less than 57,000 and dropping quickly. Once their gone their gone!

1965, 58,000 priests in america. Today less than 38,000 and almost all new recruits are imported from Africa/Asia.

When the MOST prominent religous groups of catholics decide not to answer the call to vocations, its obvious the roman catholic church is in very poor health, and in america only 1 generation behind what is going on today in western europe where few catholics ever go to church anymore.

These nuns need to make the vatican happy. They need to send some child porn over there then the pope will back off. It's all about the bribe. I wonder if it were legal to marry underaged boys if the church would then give their blessing. Although the entire priesthood may abandonded if that happened. They could all run off to the Vatican and start to really live. Those kookie pedophiles.

Homosexuality and abortion are not biblical issues. They are completely man made social issues dressed up as being biblical.

You are right they make anything an issue to get control over a man we have never seen in the sky. He is coming back and he is pissed off. In theaters this summer it's REVALATION!! On a cloud over glory he will ride in and overpower all the other religions and punish them. Thar tacked him up 2000 years ago and now he wants payback. It's revalation time. Starring no one because it's not gonna happen.

Actually the most strictest Holy Orders are thriving, esp if the nuns are cloistered. Also about a year or two ago, Oprah had on an Order of nuns that are flourishing. The most liberal nuns are fading out.

Fantasize, much?

Keep drinking that Kool-Aid, Nit. The RCC needs suckers like you to spread their propaganda.

Good thing normal, educated, informed people know better.
