Pax, I don't think you've ever hurt anyone. You say I keep coming back here; okay, I won't. I wish you the best as you're a good person. There's nothing left for me and I'm sure plenty here will be glad of that. It's done.

Same person, right? Changed his name to Sheen, if I'm thinking of the right guy.

I know, i just keep trying anyway. It baffles me, if you don't like catholics (?) or their beliefs, why invade their space and torment them. This individual seems to have a race issue of her own making. She thinks everyone is same as her. "You don't like me because I'm not catholic" whats this crap about. I know, you don't like me because I walk with a limp.:). How old is this mermaid? Don't they live to be like 500 yrs. old?

What makes you think your opinion means anything to me? Look to whom you're speaking - the yada yu character who hasn't said anything sensible that I've ever seen.

And just because many of us don't believe exactly as you do doesn't mean we dislike you - is that hard to grasp?

All the fora are for debate - offering differences of opinion. That's why they exist in the first place, so all different types are allowed their freedom of opinions. It's not a requirement that people agree, you should know that.

I was once like you - bought everything the church taught - then I stood back and took a good, long objective look at it and was deeply disappointed in what I found. No matter what you think, I'm not trying to torment you - I have no interest in doing that. I'm just pointing out the things I think are wrong, which is my right.

Yep. From his Dad Martin Sheen did not want to be type cast as Spanish.

Yeah, listen to Mr. Yada Yu and he'll try to convince you I'm your enemy. I have nothing against you; hell, I don't even know you! I may not agree with your religious beliefs, but so what? Think I'm the only one? That does NOT mean I don't like you. Has nothing to do with it. But you DO know that if I agreed with everything you say about your church, you WOULD accept me. No way is it tormenting you just because I express different beliefs. People try to torment me but it doesn't work :) I have no intention of being mean to you. I was sincerely trying to remain nice to you, but you turned on me. Oh, well. Have a good day anyhow.

I wish I could find a religion that made sense to me; that's what I'm looking for.

Yes, I remember reading of his great admiration for Fulton Sheen. When the Rev. Sheen had his tv show, I was a bit too young to understand much of it. He looked a little scary to me but I think he was a very sincere man. When I was a kid, shows like that frightened me because it seemed all they talked about was death.

I was a catholic and left the church but that's neither here nor there. This guy freaked me out when I was a kid just like most of those guys did and still do. They are a bunch of very odd dudes that I just can't take seriously. Anyways I rewatched some of his stuff on you tube and thought this guy is an old queen that rambles a great deal. He almost has a Dracula thing going on. I vont to suck your blood and testicles in this case.
Funny description but quite accurate! LOL

Catholic Girl, I don't think there should be any communication between us. I have nothing against you, but you're more the yada-yu type so stick with that gibberish.
