When God tells you that you are right and everyone else is wrong, please tell all of us.Now, to continue in our series on the Plague of Atheists:
Mind you, the appeals of atheism as a diverting pastime are not immediately obvious to those of us who are on relatively easy terms with God. Why would anyone get so excited about the misconceptions of third parties as to the existence of a fourth party in which they themselves do not believe?
The answer is twofold. First, the great advantage of designer atheism is that you get to think of yourself as immensely clever. After all, you are at least much brighter than all those dumb-asses who believe in a supreme being, such as Sister Perpetua down the road, Thomas Aquinas, Isaac Newton and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. So satisfying.
The second factor has to do with wit. For some reason, contemporary Australian/American atheism seems to consider itself terribly funny. Its proponents only have to wheel out one of the age-old religious libels to lose control of their bladders. To outsiders, of course, it is a bit like watching a giggling incontinent drunk at a party. This is not to say that believers - and perhaps especially Catholics - do not get seriously irritated by atheists. They do, but not because atheists are fearfully clever or Wildely funny.
Frankly, the prime reason the average believer finds the common or garden atheist as appealing as a holiday in Birchip is because they consign them to that sorry category of individuals who spend their lives loudly congratulating themselves on their own intelligence without noticing that no one else is joining the chorus.

..The biggest threat to your church is not non-believers, but the very teachers of your faith who have failed the followers, by committing the worst sins of all, and yet they sternly tell you to never commit such sins yourself.
From New Jersey, to Los Angeles and all points inbetween, every catholic diocese has been infected by a few clergy who have done the unspeakable, and much of the rest of the clergy including ARCH-BISHOPS as you now know, lied, deceived and covered up the unspeakable from YOU..........but that is OK you say, lets blame someone else.
Its easy to point your fingers at outsiders, because you REGINA always fear to point your finger at the real problem. Your own church leaders who have failed everyone.
