And by the way ... pope Benedict did say that the Catholic church IS the only true church. That is why the thread started.

Had he existed, he would have preached that his kingdom was with his Jewish father in Olam Ha ba.

I'm sure you wouldn't feel welcome among the faithful Jews ... "would" you?

I was just out using my shovel in what will hopefully be a bit of a garden. I cut into some angle-worms that were minding their own business. Some of them ended up in pieces.

Oh well ... never mind ... according to the preachers ... it was all part of the divine deity's PLAN.

YEAH ... RIGHT!!!

Sarcasm intended.

Babies that were not baptized and died, were not allowed to be buried in "consecrated" ground, as it was taught that they would burn in hell.

Apparently the god of heavenly love anointed theologians to "spell out" and "spill out" that "truth."

Sarcasm intended.

Those rabid hounds and hogs of heaven spilled more blood than those in any other religion in the world ... ever. Truth was nowhere to be found, but military might spoke volumes to those who wanted to live.
So I suggest you don't whine about being a victim.
There is no truth to that. But that's ok, I understand you need to accept certain propaganda to attack the only Church that Christ started.
Nobody has been victimized over the yrs like Catholics. That's ok, we can take it. The Church is still standing and will be there in Rome long after you depart this Earth.

Of course you wouldn't believe that the Catholics had blood on their hands. That wouldn't be any fun for you ... would it "oh self-perceived holy one?"

Apology and the Holocaust; The Pope's in a Confessional, And Jews Are Listening

By CELESTINE BOHLEN

MORE than any other Pope in history, Pope John Paul II leader of the world's almost one billion Roman Catholics -- has asked forgiveness for the sins, crimes and errors committed in the name of his faith.

He has apologized for the persecution of Protestants, for the crimes of the Crusaders; he has asked forgiveness for the abuses of Europe's colonial-era proselytizing around the world; he has voiced regret at the church's repression of Galileo and condemned its silence regarding Italy's own murderous Mafia.

But with only two years to go before Christianity closes the books on its first 2,000 years, the Pope has yet to ask forgiveness of the Jews for the violence they have suffered over the centuries at the hands of the church, its followers and, in some cases, its leaders. Most particularly, he has yet to make a reckoning of what many have condemned as the silence of the Vatican during the systematic slaughter of Europe's Jews by the Nazis during World War II.

And it is this apology that weighs most heavily on the church. It was first promised in 1987 by the Pope himself in a meeting with American Jewish leaders in Miami. It has been anticipated in apologies to the Jews by the Catholic bishops of Germany, Poland, Hungary and, most recently, France, for the failure of their local churches to oppose the Holocaust.

The Catholic church would have looked very silly condemning the mafia.

It would be comparable to lions condemning tigers for eating meat.

The popes are fully aware that is they apologize for the centuries of slaughter concerning the Jews, it will bring to "light" that the savior of Catholics was supposed to BE a faithful Jew ... and that won't bode well for Catholic "theology" with Jesus working 24/7 in those Catholic confessionals forgiving sins and all that other nonsense.

It would indicate that Jesus was a traitor to the Jews and to his own one and only Jewish father.

You'll see the lies ... if and when you choose to see them.

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

Is Pope Francis Liberal or Conservative?

The Catholic position is not conservative or liberal, but superior, and you don't have to be Catholic to understand that this is not a claim born of sectarian chauvinism. The Church does not define itself based on a given society's political and cultural spectrum, but based on Absolute Truth, which she recognizes to be transcendent, eternal, and unchanging. You may disagree with her conception of Truth, perhaps even profoundly, yet believing that Truth exists is the only rational position.

This relates to a conversion experience I had a long, long time ago. I realized that if there wasn't something deeper than the political, deeper than the cultural even - if man's opinions were all there is -- then my "conservative" views were essentially meaningless. Sure, I liked them as I liked chocolate ice cream, but if they were just flavors of the day, how could I credibly say they were any better than liberal ones? To thus boast there had to a transcendent yardstick for judging such things. There had to be Truth.

What if your religion is what IS corrupting you, and you just don't recognize that it is so?

What THEN?

You no-doubt are certain that the religion of the Muslims is a corrupted religion. But of course, as you continually look and point outward at supposed EVIL, you can't inspect what lurks "within."

My guess is pope Formosus didn't forsee that his dead body would be exhumed and treated in such a disrespectful manner.

Cadaver Synod

The Cadaver Synod (also called the Cadaver Trial or, in Latin, the Synodus Horrenda) is the name commonly given to the posthumous ecclesiastical trial of Catholic Pope Formosus, held in the Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome during January of 897.[1] The trial was conducted by Formosus's successor, Pope Stephen (VI) VII. Stephen accused Formosus of perjury and of having acceded to the papacy illegally. At the end of the trial, Formosus was pronounced guilty and his papacy retroactively declared null. The Cadaver Synod is remembered as one of the most bizarre episodes in the history of the medieval papacy.

Eventually, the corpse was found guilty. Liutprand and other sources say that Stephen had the corpse stripped of its papal vestments, cut off the three fingers of his right hand used for consecrations, and declared all of his acts and ordinations (including his ordination of Stephen (VI) VII as bishop of Anagni) invalid. The body was finally interred in a graveyard for foreigners, only to be dug up once again, tied to weights, and cast into the Tiber River.

Let us consider some further excerpts from the article, shall we?

"The Church has just such a vision. You may love it or you may hate it, but one thing you won't do is change it. And this is why virtually all the Church's secular critics, and even most of her secular fans, cannot understand her. They know of a world determined by man and his majority vote, a place where money and lobbying and protesting bend wills. But the Church bends to only one immutable will. This is why it's so silly when journalists run headlines such as the Huffington Post's "Pope Francis Against [sic] Gay Marriage, Gay Adoption." It may as well be thought newsworthy that he upholds "Thou shalt do no murder" or that he breathes air and ingests food. What the secular left finds so shockingly politically incorrect about the Church involves definitive teaching, which means that it has a basis in Truth, cannot change, and must be obeyed by peons and popes alike."

Whether popes were put on the thrones "legally" or "illegally" is a matter of opinion.

Maybe the warring god voted this one in.

The Incredible Book of Vatican Facts and Papal Curiosities … A treasury of Trivia, by Nino Lo Bello~ Published 1998.

Who was the “Warrior Pope?”

Only one pope ever went to war. Known as the “Warrior Pope,” Pope Julius II (1503—1513), dressed in a full suit of armor, led his Crusade troops into battle on several occasions. Admired for his fighting prowess, he was known a “Il Terribile”(The Terrible One”). When Michelangelo fashioned a statue of Pope Julius, seated with a book in his hands, the pope asked the artist to remove the book and replace it with a sword.
