So you think the problems in today's society are the result of the Catholic Church's refusal to condone abortion, birth control and gay marriage.
It seems to me Mike that when one considers the long term effect of such a society, the Catholic Church is doing the correct thing for purposes of self preservation. If all your gay friends get married, all of your feminist friends use birth control and have a bunch of abortions, it will take maybe a generation or two for your crowd to die out. Keep pushing your agenda Mike, it helps the Church!!!

Michael says...

...Maybe you should start right with the followers of your church. You don't think catholics are having abortions, using birth control, getting divorced, or that no catholics are gay?(lol)

Believing there is an invisible man somewhere?? up in the clouds above, all day long looking down smiling at his creation, needs a lot more than religion (lol)
An invisible man creates 10 rules that you must follow. If you don't follow even one of these rules and say you are sorry, the the inivisble man after you die will send your soul to a fire pit of heat and flames, torture, more heat, pain and suffering..........but this invisible man loves you!
UNBELIEVABLE!

There IS a God that you cannot see, because our vision cannot manage it.
Your physical eyes can only see about 3 % of the available light.
What is so bad about creating people who are capable of living/doing good, then judging them by whether they can/will do what they are designated to do. If they are wicked (I don't mean accidentally run a traffic light), what would be wrong about keeping them out of heaven.
He has given US the choice. I can't think of one more wicked that the one who would reject that choice. Do you want to spend eternity with Hitler...and a few others I could mention? I don't.

....My sister a more devout catholic than you Anthony her 40 year old son was gay, he died 3 years ago. I knew gay/lesbian kids in highschool. I knew some men from work were gay. I am sure you know gay people. I am hetro-sexual but I have nothing against gay people. I am not a bigot, as you are. You know yourself your catholic clergy has more gays than the general population. Whats your point?
The catholic church is not going to stop pre-marital sex, or contraceptives, or divorce, or catholics in greater numbers not attending mantatory sunday mass. The catholic church has lost complete control and they themselves have not set very good MORAL and ETHICAL standards themselves as you know Anthony.
What others do in their bedrooms are none of our business. Maybe you and your wife live EXACTLY as the church tells you to live, but in the real world it doesn't happen that way.
When I see the most holy catholics such as the 1,000 and counting priest association, and 47,000 nuns spending their lives helping the poor and down trodden, those are more important issues than beating the drum of whose divorced? Who is using condoms?
Worry about yourself and everyone else will do just fine.
**********
Churches have long been too 'polite' to deal with these subjects. Our silence has resulted in ignorance in our youth. The Bill Clinton fiasco in the White House resulted in the publicizing of oral sex. Most of our children never heard of it. It began to be recognized as 'safe sex', because you couldn't get pregnant. School kids have been exercising their new-found ? on school buses!
No one told them that they could get aids from that act.(Why did your friend die at only 40 years of age?) No one told them that oral and anal cancers are running wild as a result of that behavior.
The church (RCC or any other) that preaches against such behavior should be protected, not condemned. No one would declare that ''what one does in one's bedroom is no one's business'', if what they were doing was murder, or brutality, etc. Paul says that those practices are "dishonoring their bodies." (Rom. 1)
This is not a pleasant subject, but we must see to it that our youth know the consequences of such behavior.

Sorry, it doesn't work that way in your belief system. You say salvation is instantaneous the nanosecond you accept Christ by faith alone. How can anything be measured by you or other baptists AFTER the fact? It's a done deal, nothing they do or don't do can take it away.....

Teacher Faces Suspension for Sharing Bible Verse
Posted on December 14, 2012
A longtime substitute teacher in Phillipsburg, NJ, faces a 90-day suspension after he was accused of sharing a Bible verse with a student – and then giving the child a Bible. The Phillipsburg School Board said Walter Tutka broke two policies – distributing religious literature on school grounds and another policy that directs teachers to be neutral when discussing religious material. The controversy has generated outrage among the region’s religious community – with many claiming that Tutka is being “persecuted” for simply being a Christian. The electrical company retiree is a well-respected member of the community.“It was appalling,” said Joe Imhof, a close friend of Tutka.“They read him the riot act. They used words like separation of church and state and inclusion. And then they sent him home for violating school district policy.” Imhof and Tutka serve together in Gideons International – a ministry known for providing Bibles to school children across the world. He was one of several people to speak at a recent school board meeting about Tutka’s fate. In October, Tutka was standing by a door waiting on middle school students to enter the building. One student trailed behind the rest.“Just remember, son,” Tutka told the tardy student,“The first shall be last but the last shall be first.” A few days later the student asked about the origins of the quote. Tutka told him it was in the Bible.“Over the next few weeks, the young student asked about a half dozen times where the quote was from in the Bible,” Imhof told Fox News.“Walt kept forgetting to look it up.” On Oct. 12th, Tutka was eating lunch in the cafeteria when the student approached and brought up the Bible verse. So Tutka took out his Bible and showed the student the verse. At some point the student mentioned that he did not have a Bible.“Walt basically said,‘would you like mine?” Imhof said.“The student said yes and so Walt gave him his personal New Testament.” It’s unclear who reported Tutka to administration officials. But several days later he was summoned to the front office and Tutka, who had subbed for 28 out of the last 30 days, was sent home. To date, he has not been called back. The school superintendent did not return multiple calls seeking comment. The Express-Times received a copy of a letter from the school district recommending Tutka’s suspension for violating district policy.

I think you need to check out the latest science reports. It was they who said that we can only see about 3 % of available light.

Scriptures back it up. "No man can see God (who is light) and live." And, "When Jesus returns He will destroy the wicked WITH THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING."

Yeah, I know just what you mean.imagine living under the roof with someone just as dumb as you are.

ananias and Sapphira.

The major sin of Ananias and Sapphira was dishonesty, deceit, hypocrisy, pretense, presenting a false image of themselves, implying a greater spirituality than they actually possessed, letting people think more highly of them than what they knew was warranted. They were more interested in appearances than in reality.

whoever wrote that said it very well. just like they knew mr and mrs fraud

I agree they don't recognize these instances.

It is because they are blinded by a false doctrine.

I've tried to help, but their minds are of their own, well sort of.
