Well Jethro, the men and woman who walked with Jesus, loved him without him dying, they loved HIM and admired Him for His values and followed Him.
Matthew 5, speaks clearly on the character of Jesus, the only ones who wanted HIM dead where the people who sat in places of authority, power who were afraid they would lose their high pocession in life.
Jesus was a man of great sorrow Jethro He was born to die for you and me. If we were the only man and woman on earth Jesus would have still died.
Men and woman have tried to deflame Jesus through History, the men and woman who are in power is because God allows it.
Those in places of power to Judge people or pass laws people have to live with , they better do so with honesty and live by the same laws themselves. Our leaders have much to fear if they are not .

A few posts back, Confrint told me "just because the wrath of God has not yet come upon you, does not mean that it won't."
I assume, because I'm Catholic, God will punish me, according to Confrint. Some could view this as 'sending me to hell'.
Old G said I will wake up in hell someday, next to my Pope.
These men both declared themselves pastors and deacons! Followers of Jesus Christ and apparent authorities on sacred scripture!! Amazing
Those are your leaders LTM.
Clay they are not my leaders,[JESUS IS MY LEADER, HE IS THE ONLY ONE IN position TO JUDGE WHO WILL OR WILL NOT GO TO HEAVEN]
God by the way does not send us to hell, we are given a choice to choose good or evil. If we choose God's way He will allow us into Heaven, if not then we have chosen the other alterative which is hell.
Only God knows a mans heart Clay . for what it is worth I believe many catholic's love the Lord and desire to serve him, in my opinion there will be catholic in Heaven because God does not care what religion you are.
The Bible says we are all sinners and come short of the glory of God, there is non righteous no not one. the truth is no one deserves heaven.
Yet while we were sinners Jesus died for us, our salvation is because of Jesus alone Clay Jesus is the only door .
If we are trying to get in through another door we will never get to Heaven I am afraid Clay.

I hope you read his story. Don't tell me you disagree with what he stated? There are many priests who are supporting the nuns in their fight. He sounds exactly how I feel.

Should a priest like Father Keosel and former Catholic Monk Richard Sipe be CONTROLLED! and CENSORED in what they say, as you claim you are not?

Its sad when people give their honest opinions about something, and they are ostricized because their statements aren't EXACTLY as their church leaders want them to appear.

Its called CONTROL Clay, and you say you are not controlled, because you agree with EVERYTHING the church states.

You don't like the Huffington post. You don't like the National catholic enquirer, you don't like anything that speaks their mind that doesn't agree with you.

The largest group of religious in america are the ROMAN CATHOLICS. The largest group of non-religious in america are EX-ROMAN CATHOLICS.

I know Clay, its all my fault...lol!

As someone who is catholic and was raised in the faith, I find this truly offensive that the Pope would make a statement like this. It is making me seriously consider leaving the church. As long as popele believe in God and the holy trinity, why does it matter whether they believe as catholics, methodists, lutherans, etc? I think Benedict has gone too far with this statement and I do believe it is going to hurt the catholic church in the long run.
To Elizabeth:
This stand is NOTHING NEW. The RCC has been teaching this for centuries, via the Inquisition and all of their other misuses of power. They hold hellfire over the heads of the sheep with this teaching, and ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE IT IS WRONG, since they neither obey God nor follow his teachings!
They are bullies who use claimed authority from God as an excuse for exploitation.They are a dangerous cult that is doomed to fall soon.

Hello LTM....

There are many catholics today that feel the same way as Father Keosel. They are just afraid to speak out like I do.

This priest is considered a loose canon by the church. Not because he is a bad person, not because he sexually molested anyone, but because he has enough courage to speak what he believes to be true. Same with the nuns. The church is not interested in the truth, they are interested in CONTROL, and control ONLY comes from the vatican.

ReginaM. says....in favor of abortion, homosexual unions..and women priests!

Michael says....

1) WOMEN PRIESTS....


..whats wrong with women priests? You don't feel subservant to men, because your church only allows you as a woman to participate in church functions but YOU REGINA M. are never going to ever have the equality or the same rights of any man in your church to become a member of the clergy, and never be allowed to be involved in any policy making in the church.

2) ABORTION....

Catholic women have more abortions than protestant women per capita. I thought you knew this?

Read the stats in the 4th paragraph below.....

http://www.beliefnet.com/Faiths/Catholic/2001...

3) HOMOSEXUALITY....

Father Donald Cozzens estimates over 35% of american priests have gay tendencies.

Father Andrew Greely indicates that speaking with the bishops something should be done with the high number of gay clergy.

NBC reported on celebacy that upwards of 58% of priests have homosexual tendencies.

James Wolfe Socioogist reports upwards of 55% of catholic clergy have gay tendencies.

http://www.trosch.org/bks/rvw/cozzens.html

I know REGINA M. not one of your priests throughout your life were gay, and someone is making up all these numbers to smear the church.

All we want is the TRUTH.

Do any of these crimes happy in other church , I would say yes, are they hidden , Yes . For you to say the catholic church stands alone in speaking out against these crimes is a total denial of the truth Clay.

You are a very smart person and I am sure you will understand all that I post here. A catholic church in turmoil.

Today, its clear many so called devout catholics haven't got a clue what is going on within their church.

Around the world today well over 130 women have been ordained roman catholic priests. The church says its illegal but these women are gathering followers quickly. Women priests ministering now in 22 states in america.

http://romancatholicwomenpriests.org/ordained...

AUSCP: Around the world catholic priests are forming UNIONS (associations) the AUSCP in america to the end of October now has nearly 900 priests enrolled from over 120 dioceses in america and is growing. They are in total support of Vatican II and they all support the nuns in america's fight against the vatican bullies.

http://www.uscatholicpriests.org/

Catholics should be paying close attention to what is really going on in their church. But most haven't got a clue.

On dogma and doctrine? Yes.
Again, I don't have to agree. For a period, I didn't agree with many things, because I didn't understand them. Like contraception.
The Church can't force our conscience to believe as they teach. Privately, many Catholics go against their teachings. I think if people took the time to examine the how's and why's the Church teaches, then they would realize the truth in their teachings.
Adult people have to take responsibilities for themselves. If they have to keep looking to the church for answers everytime they can't make a decision that shows how little self esteem the individual has about themselves.

The church or any church should not control anyones lives. If a person is not going to use contraceptives ONLY because the church instills fear into them for not complying, then I say run as fast as you can away from the CHURCH.

Catholic clergy and nuns are not to marry and have children, because their estates usually get funneled back into the church coffers.

The catholic clergy encourages married lay couples to HAVE CHILDREN because it means more members down the road which corresponds into more money in the collection plate.

I am not in favor of any kind of killing Regina, especially of innocent children and unborn babies.
I am not in favor of anything the Bible says 'THOU SHALL NOT DO"
BUT YOU SHOULD BE TALKING TO YOUR POPE AND PRIEST'S BECAUSE THEY HAVE DONE ALL OF THE ABOVE, CONDENMED EVERYONE ELSE TO HELL FOR THE SINS THEY THEM SELVES COMMITT AND COVERED UP FOR EONS.
They have a set of rules for themselves and other set of rules for everyone else,'JUST LIKE THE PHARISEE'S AND SCRIBES' AND DIDN'T JESUS SAY "WOE ON TO YOU PHARISEE'S AND SCRIBES YOU BLOCK THE GATES TO HEAVEN SO NO ONE ELSE, BECAUSE YOU YOURSELF WILL NOT ENTER." that may not be the exact words , but you know what it means.
How many homosexuals are in the catholic church right now Regina, how many Pedophiles, how many catholic's every year use birth controll or aborted a baby.
Do you know what goes on behind closes doors of every catholic house hold.
How many catholic's get fall down drunk beat their wifes, abuse their children etc. etc. Come on Regina you want to get down and dirty . Remember sweety I have been married to two catholic men, lived among many of the family members.
Go clean out your own filth before you come on here and try to put words in my mouth,'REMEMBER WHEN YOU START THROWING CRAP, YOU WILL GET SOME ON YOURSELF REGINA'
"religious women realized that the philosophical underpinnings of Catholic teaching are no longer valid."
IT ISN'T VALID, IT NEVER WAS. THESE NUNS ARE DOING WHAT JESUS SAID TO DO . THE POPE SHOULD BE GIVING THEM A MEDAL FOR DOING THE WORKS OF THE LORD. INSTEAD HE JUST GAVE HIMSELF ANOTHER BIG BLACK MARK FOR CRITIZING THEM FOR DOING WHAT JESUS COMMANDED.
IT SEEMS TO ME THE POPE SHOULD LEARN TO KEEP HIS MOUTH SHUT EVERY TIME HE OPENS IT HE PUTS HIS FOOT IN IT.
WHO IS HE TO SPEAK AGAINST WHAT JESUS COMMANDED.

I have great respect of the priest who wrote that article about the nuns.
There are priest that really do want to serve God, but because of the stink of the vatican scandals of child abuse cover ups many of them are being painted with the same brush.

Today in america single loving men and women are allowed to adopt children and bring them into their homes and raise them.

If the church has rules that priests/nuns are not allowed to marry, why can't priests and nuns adopt children, to give them a good home?

The president of the UNITED STATES is busier than any priest, and he has time for his children, why not a priest or nun?

MAKES SENSE TO ME!
