How can such a filthy mouth even talk about church? Of course, you said that you liked to ---with ministers. I knew a man like that once. He scared the wits out of a few preachers. When I told him what he was doing...and why he was doing it, he was the one who was scared.
God is not mocked...
Who's mocking God??? What filthy mouth??? The movie characters'?
I'd like to what with ministers? Where did I say this?
I'm not a man and it's just a movie, yes a rude, offensive (to people who feel offended by movies), very funny movie, but with a wonderful message underneath. Chill. God knows my heart, your judgement means naught, how abusive you are.

I never gave you any of these negative feedbacks, it was probably somebody named cowboy and other catholics.

Lack of discipline is what is going to bring down "too big to fail" religions. It has been going on too long.

When I was young catholic, priests taught us that we could NEVER receive the sacrament of the eucharist with sins on our souls, yet these so called holy men in great numbers have done just that. Molesting clergy some of them habitual, gave themselves holy communion at every mass they said without themselves going to confession/repentance. The clergy who didn't abuse never disciplined the ones who did these crimes, by telling them to do the right thing and turn themselves into the authorities to have justice served.

What is the point in going to a priest in the confessional if the confessional priest isn't going to do the right thing and advise the abusive priest to turn himself in to authorities? Giving a penance of 5 hail marys and 3 our fathers isn't justice. Its just an appeasement of the church.

It is no different than a boy throwing a ball through a neighbors window. A good parent would instruct their child to go to the neighbor, apologize and pay restitution. Its obvious it doesn't work that way in the catholic church, and its obvious today the results we see. A church riddled with NEVER ENDING scandals, because the right thing was never done. The right thing that they taught us to do, but the right thing they never practiced themselves.

Actually it's protestantism, by virtue of it's constant splintering, bickering, and mauling of scripture that Jesus was referring to as tares. Jesus didn't found thousands of competing protesting sects, He founded one, true Church. The Catholic Church.

There will be a day ..and (I believe it is very soon)

that you are in for a very rude awakening.

YOU CAN PRODUCE NO SCRIPTURES FROM THE BIBLE TO PROVE WHAT YOUR CHURCH TEACHES TEACH...

THOSE THAT BELIEVE IN SOLA SCRIPTURA CAN.

Even if what you believe had credibility (AND I DO NOT BELIEVE IT DOES) we that believe the Bible will be judged by THE BIBLE

YOU THAT HAVE NOT READ THE BOOK WILL FAIL THE TEST,..

BECAUSE YOU REFUSE TO DO YOUR HOME WORK...

THE APOSTAL PAUL DID NOT BOW TO PETER

Gal 2:6 But of these who seemed to be somewhat,(whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man's person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me:

Gal 2:7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;

Gal 2:8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)

NOTE-->

Gal 2:9 And when James, Cephas/PETER and John,

--> who seemed to be pillars, <--

perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.

Gal 2:10 Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.

Why so many scandals in the catholic church? Because the church leaders who did bad things, were never instructed to do the right things. The good clergy never instructed the bad clergy to apologize to victims. Never instructed them to go to police authorities to serve justice.

Catholic church leaders ALWAYS instruct catholics to do the right thing, or its a sin, but its obvious these rules do not apply to church leaders.

The proof? Scandal after Scandal, and no one to blame but themselves.

No real communication here.I look to my relationship with GOD, and I try to keep people, with their various agendas, to the side.People are fools, out for their own betterment.To my way of thinking, all big churches are an impediment to reaching GOD.

Stick to pasting your National Enquirer articles and leave the religious discussions to the adults, k? That's a good Mikey...
2 SCENARIOS.....

1)...Anytime you or any lay catholic goes to the confessional and tells your sins, the priest will often inform you to make right. what you did wrong. If you broke a neighbors window the priest would strongly advise you to go to the neighbor explain what you did and offer restitution.

2) Whenever a molesting priest who would tell another priest his sins (I am sure very few did or do) why did the confessional priest not strongly advice the molesting priest to do the right thing and go to authorities to report his crime? What is the purpose for confession if it only applies to lay people?

Why would you believe that a priest should be given special treatment for a serious crime committed, yet you would be told to do the right thing and report your crime?

HIPOCRICY!

.....Reading the thousands of posts on this forum, it is obvious that many roman catholics on here, are more in love with their church, than they are with God and his teachings.

Scriptures claim, God always said to do the right thing. With the catholic church gripped with so many sinful scandals, with no relief or fix in sight, its obvious the right thing has not been practiced very much.

How long before more followers finally decide that God to them is more important than the church, which has obviously been off the rails for a long time.
