"Ordering" would be an entirely too clumsy an activity for an organization steeped for centuries in "plausible deniability" and Macchiavellianism.
Listen to the 4 interviews I posted. You will quickly see complicity and cooperation.
You made the claim.

Sure they do.

Anointing of the Sick is ther term.

It isn't even close to being the same; not in theory, theology, soteriology, rubrics, nor in practice.

You should already know this ... unless you are actually too young to know the old, Tridentine teachings.

Honestly, better to just say, "Yes sir". It's what you're trained to do.

"Assertion", not "claim".

I also provided contributory evidence. You can download the four-part interview series for free as an Mp3, and listen at your leisure. Highly recommended before we continue this discussion.

Assertion, then.
An NPR prgram on a shadowy congressional group equates to the RCC oppressing and killing gays.
I'm not sure if I'll ever have that much "leisure" at my disposal. If I want conspriacy theories I can just watch Oliver Stone movies.

How should He have taken human form?
Umm...hello! Remember God created the whole Universe? Remember God supposedly created woman out of a rib? Remember how God supposedly created Adam without impregnating anybody? But he needed to impregnate a 14 year old girl to get one Messiah onto this Earth? Think about it a little more.

The National Prayer Breakfast is HARDLY "shadowy".

That's NOT a conspiracy theory. The "C Street Family" expose made frontpage mainstream news.

I listen to such things while doing other stuff.

Listen ... and learn.

It's called multi-tasking.

He didn't.

But to stay within the bounds of the cosmology you proposed, how did He walk in the garden "at the time of the evening breeze"? How did the angels do it, when they stopped by Abraham's tent and visited Lot?

Are you saying that angels can do what the Almighty cannot?

These issues only spring from certain early heresies, and thoroughly distract from Yeshua's message.

Uh. Sort of right.

Washington Post: front page with followups, Politics section
The New York Times: front page below the fold, Washington section
The New Yorker: Lead story with followups, Politics section
Mother Jones: Lead story with followups, politics section
Newsweek: Cover story with followups

Starting in 2009 spread over the next two years.

The above aren't mainstream?

Of course. It's intrinsic to the Cappadocian heresy.

Again Morgana-

That's a fact.
Again Dan, those sporting a vagina are not "allowed" in church governance. Keep dancing.
