There is no clear evidence one way or another regarding homosexuality. It occurs not only in humans but in the animal kingdom. I am sure there are many people that you know are gay but you probably aren't aware of it.
Today, our world is becoming a much more compassionate world and as evidence in america that gay marriages is being accepted more all the time.
Are you predujidced against gay people?
Hatred and ignorance is why we have so many problems today in our world. Suicide rates among gay/lesbians is much greater than the general population, I can't believe someone would choose such a lifestyle only to be ostricized by ignorant people like yourself,.
I myself am hetrosexual, but I am way beyond critizing and marginalizing someone who is different than me. You are a long way from there.
If you had a son or daughter or a grand child or parent that stated they were gay would you disown them?.........you probably would.......very sad!

so any bets on who is going to be pope?? my money is on the man from boston,father o'malley,problem is he is a no nonsense kind of a guy,he'll sweep the dirt right out of vatican city,he is solely responsible for keep what little is left as far as catholics and churches there are here which is dwindling by the day. i heard there was some sort of problem in vatican city??? not sure what it is,but it wouldn't surprise me if it involved o'malley,i'm sure some of the cardinals are afraid of him,he is a kickass kind of guy,that is my opinion of what i have seen,heard and read about him,he closed the leak of the sinking catholic church here in boston.he would bring the church to the people,not the people just coming to the church,he would open the doors to the troubles of the church and tell how he will resurect the church into being the powerful conglomerate it once was. and that scares the higherarchy. to be open an honest?how dare he think those thoughts,he is catholic,he must stick to tradition!.... LIE
If Cardinal O'Malley or Cardinal Dolan becomes Pope the balance of future power will shift to the americas. Its currently a battle between european cardinals versus americas.

I believe there are 11 american voting cardinals and guranteed if one of them becomes Pope he will create even more future cardinals from North America to give them the edge in future voting power balance.

Its all political at the highest level, and everyday catholics haven't got a clue what jockeying is really going on.

These are historical times.

It doesn't matter whether its democrat or republicans in power. The shift today is to equality. 125 years ago we had slavery in america, 50 years ago in the USA many americans thought it was just fine that black people drank from different water fountains or had to ride at the back when travelling on a bus. Thank God we have made strides away from that. 90 years ago women in america were not even allowed to vote. Another positive for equality.

The churches themselves have been the biggest culprits in not showing the way with a moral compass. Thousands of children over many years around the world were sexually abused at the hands of some religious men, and covered up by the rest. Shameful!

Today the second money laundering scandal in the catholic church is under investigation. Today 47,000 nuns in america are under investigation by their own church leaders. Does this sound like an organization that is leading the way in morality?

The three biggest challenges today in america is the prolific use of illegal/legal drugs. Obesity, and out of control gun ownership.

In a perfect world if we could eliminate the american desire for drugs our prisons would empty out quickly, and gun crimes would drop substantially.

If someone gets upset because they get bullied or are physically uncomfortable because they weigh 375 pounds then its up to them to stop upsizing their McHappy Meal 5 times a week.

We are all responsible for our actions. I know crime is rampant but I don't associate with people of bad behavior. Something we should all practice, but we don't.

Its all our fault.

Your 'church teachings' are not only man-made, but traditionally FALSE.
NOWHERE does the Bible say to pray to Mary and to lifeless, useless statuary.
Nowhere does it mention silly indulgences, or purgatory, to say nothing of a pope, elected or otherwise.
Catholics don't "worship" Mary. It's just lots and lots of "devotion."

Only Catholics can tell the difference, and besides -- lots of devotion to Mary can save your soul (see 2nd Secret of Fatima).

In short, the Vatican stepped over the line and now they have a problem. Unless the RCC has committed fraud -- Mary clearly states that devotion to her sacred heart saves souls.

It's difficult being "perfect." Over time, being perfect requires many, many lies.

....Catholic Cardinal Pham Minh Man from vietnam, and Cardinal Zen from china will have as much chance at getting any votes or becoming Pope then a woman sneaking into the conclave and becoming the 116th voting cardinal. These two Cardinals might as well go home, or they could be the determining factor for the two votes they cast.
Imagine being these two cardinals and not one of the other Cardinals gives you even one vote? How embarassing!
Its all political.

Doesn't matter who is in power. George W. Bush put us into the deep debt americans are currently in.

Our prisons are full, mostly because of the appetite by americans for the prolific illegal/legal drug use and the use of guns to commit the crimes that go along with the drugs.

I see the crime just like everyone else. I stay out of bad neighborhoods and I don't associate with people of bad behavior.

80 years ago illegal rum/moonshine running was the drug culture back then.

Its obvious that by far most roman catholics are so because of family/tradition "born catholic"

http://old.usccb.org/comm/catholic-church-sta...

Its obvious most catholics who fall away from the church are those that were indoctrinated from childhood, not those that found the faith as adults.

Isn't it time the catholic church took a close look at infant baptisms and determine that "BRANDING" someone a catholic from birth makes no common sense. Making adult educated personal decisions of what religion to join is a much better way, and makes the follower a stronger believer than being created a catholic by your parents to become what they want......you to become just like them.

Gosh hojo, you have never read Scripture, because there are many examples of Popes going against.

An obvious one is contained in John -- baptism REQUIRED for salvation. That was re-affirmed by Papal Bull.

Maybe you are thinking of the Slovenian Orthodox Church or something.

Or, you could be in denial.

Where did it EVER say that ANY human who had died had ANYTHING to do with what was happening on earth after their death?

If those in Heaven DID have any concern with what was happening on earth, them surely the NT would have revealed this, with, say, the most important of the OT persons, such as Moses (representing the Law) and Elijah (representing the Prophets).

Their absence speaks volumes in support of your position!
Yes and the sinless one that presented Grace... The author and finisher of our faith...has no one that is comparable to His position.

Old Testament prophecy

Psa_2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me,

--> Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Mat_3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Mat_17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Mar_1:11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Mar_9:7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Luk_3:22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

Luk_9:35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

--> in a parable Jesus referenced Himself as God's beloved Son

Luk_20:13 Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.

Also at Jacob's well..Jesus claimed the position of Messiah

Joh 4:25 The woman saith unto him, I know that--> Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.

Joh 4:26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he/Messiah.

That any one would attempt to place a corruptible human as His representative on earth,(pope or whatever) is ludicrousness...

He can only only represented to Man by the Holy Ghost...the third person in the GOD-HEAD.

No other entity qualifies.

He's my friend and He is my brther, even though He is my King

Take one step off american/canadian soil and you are going backwards in time.

Look at Milan Italy. Stinky, Water logged, Moldy old buildings. You wake up in the morning, have a piss outside your bedroom window, into the putrid water all around you as tourists snap your picture sailing by on a gondola bumping their heads on low bridges. NO thanks!

I just got back from Phoenix. No Milan Italy for me. No Iran either.

Did Christ not say that He was THE WAY, not ways, THE TRUTH, not truths, THE SALVATION, not salvations. Did HE not also say ONE FAITH, not faiths, ONE SALVATION, not salvations, ONE BAPTISM, not baptisms. Did HE not say that THERE SHALL BE ONE FOLD and ONE SHEPHERD, not folds and many shepherds.HE also said that many would come in HIs name and they were not to be believed or followed. It is said that if even if an angel were to come in HIs name they were not to believed, listened to or followed, this by St. Paul. If anyone dares to educate themselves a bit they will find out that before Martin Luther, who was a Catholic priest and practiced and taught the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, till he illuminated by a spirit and decided to teach things different than was taught for 1,500 years then. It could not be the same SPIRIT sent by GOD on Pentecost.The true Holy Spirit is not a deceiver,the deceiver is the spirit of Satan and those who follow him.

Imagine Chinese Cardinal Zen and Vietnamese Cardinal Phem Minh Man sitting in the conclave after the first ballot, when they read out the 115 votes and 113 cardinals stare at these two guys when they get ZERO votes.

Its like coming last in a race. Its like finishing a baseball season 0-156. I feel sorry for these two guys.

Imagine when they get home and the excited catholics in their diocese ask them "how many votes did you get!!!"?... None!, Zero! NADA!...Not even one? Nope!

Obedience
OBE'DIENCE, n.[L. obedientia. See Obey.]

Compliance with a command, prohibition or known law and rule of duty prescribed;

the performance of what is required or enjoined by authority, or

the abstaining from what is prohibited, in compliance with the command or prohibition.

To constitute obedience,

the act or forbearance to act must be in submission to authority;

the command must be known to the person, and his compliance must be in

consequence of it,

or it is not obedience.

Obedience is not synonymous with obsequiousness; the latter often

implying meanness or servility, and

obedience being merely a proper submission to authority.

That which duty requires implies dignity of conduct rather than servility.

Obedience may be voluntary or involuntary.

Voluntary obedience alone can be acceptable to God.

OBEDIENCE TO ANY OTHER ENTITY IS SPIRITUAL ADULTERY...

THE BED ROCK/BASIS, OF My obedience comes from my LOVE FOR GOD...

NO OTHER DESERVES MY SOUL'S ADORATION

OBEDIEN'TIAL, a. According to the rule of obedience; in compliance with commands; as obediential submission.
