June! Why don't you just keep playing your anti-God, anti-Church, agnostic and atheist "word games" with Black Thunder 42!---"You deserve each other"!!!
Of course. You can't prove your deity exists, so you choose to defame those who ask you to do just that,

You are such a looser.

You said, quote, ""Catholic priests do not marry because, while Christ does indeed
approve of marriage for the Christian clergy, He much prefers that
they do not marry. He made this quite clear when He praised the
Apostles for giving up "all" to follow Him, saying, "And every one
that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or
mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my name's sake, shall
receive an hundredfold, and shall possess life everlasting."
(Matt. 19:27-29)." End quote.
Matthew 19:27-29, 27 "Then Peter said in reply, "See, we have left everything and followed you. What then will we have?" 28 Jesus said to them, "Truly, I say to you, in the new world, when the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name's sake, will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life."
Strange? Do you see the word..........W I V E S !!!!!
Actually, most of the mackerel snappers claim Peter as pope. Do you fish eaters realize Peter was married?

Not only was Peter married, 38 other Popes were married too. So what? If the Church suddenly allowed all clergy to get married, Christ wouldn't condemn em all to hell for it. Celibacy isn't dogma. Its a Church rule; a discipline. And its completely shown in scripture as well.
Are you stupid or just plain ignorant??? The example of Peter being married applies to the crapola your fellow mackerel snapper mentioned that Jesus said it was better if they WERE NOT MARRIED.

You said, quote, "Celibacy isn't dogma. Its a Church rule; a discipline. And its completely shown in scripture as well." End quote.

Celibacy is not dogma but a priest poking little boys must be. Why do I say that? Because it goes on all of the time.

Thanks. Always hate the subject because people forget these criminals are men. And they can be on every walk of life.
But the closing of these mostly poor parishes and selling off the buildings...is bad.
And why doesn't. ROME ..if it id ONE church make up the shortfall that may have come from these payments and ghd econmoy.
Those people noe have to take hisses or go all the way 3cities away to find home churches.
we have menu people of different languages. Down here and these local parishes were their home.
The CC is kn the very position with a central head to help them. Imo.
Dod you ever consider that if the church was not overrun with pedophile priests, this would never have been a problem?

I "stepped up to the plate" (long ago) by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, in and through His historically and biblically PROVEN One True Apostolic Catholic Church and the Salvation that he gave us through His Life, death and resurrection...... If you chose to live your life by continously "drifting around in your revolving circle" of confusion, and chaos, with your life "firmly entrenched" in hostile vindictive beligerence-toward God and Christianity-------that is YOUR choice.(hope it works out for you).. As a Catholic/Christian, I choose to spend each day at Daily Mass with the Eucharist (Jesus' TRUE body and blood) and in prayer, contemplation and communion with God Our Father, His Son Jesus, with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that Christ gave us at Pentecost..... You can do what you want Black Thunder!!!!!!!
You never stepped up to the plate---or you would have proved your deity existed at least.
You never supplied any satisfactory evidence whatsoever.
Your circular reasoning and obfiscation is not "proof' at all.

Priest....if you are in good standing with the Roman Catholic church, if you have been to confession and if you are Roman Catholic you can receive communion. IF IF IF!!!!!!!!!! If not, the priest says, cross your arms and you can receive a blessing. Cross your arms?????????? Pathetic self-centered, self-righteous and self-serving defines the Roman Catholic church.

The Priest is supposed to proclaim the truth no matter what.
The Catholic Church proclaims the truth in spite of popular opinion and cultural influence.
When you guys marry gay people and promote condoms and other contraceptives, you're are doing so because that's what the folks in your congregation want.
The Catholic Church doesn't take a vote on what they should teach. So even if the Priest has feelings otherwise, he will not (or should not) go against his Bishop. And since Christ is the founder of the Catholic Church, we are assured that they will not error on any teachings.
So far, everything checks out too. You've failed to provide any evidence of the Church in error. In fact, you need to use deception - like when you falsely accused them of changing the 10 commandments - to promote your religion.
You said, quote, "The Priest is supposed to proclaim the truth no matter what. The Catholic Church proclaims the truth in spite of popular opinion and cultural influence." End quote.

What truth is the priest spilling out of his mouth when he tells people in order to take communion you must be in good standing with the Roman Catholic church, if they have been to confession and if they are Roman Catholic. What truth is that? No truth...just bologna.

Also, the Roman Catholic church proclaims it's perverted version of truth not Biblical absolute truth.

You said, quote, "When you guys marry gay people and promote condoms and other contraceptives, you're are doing so because that's what the folks in your congregation want." End quote.

My denomination does not marry same sex perverts. But your Roman Catholic church covers up and lies for the priests so they can continue to sodomize defenseless little boys. I bet you are busting your buttons over that great TRUTH!!!

You said, quote, "So even if the Priest has feelings otherwise, he will not (or should not) go against his Bishop. And since Christ is the founder of the Catholic Church, we are assured that they will not error on any teachings." End quote.

You are a blasphemous liar if you believe your priests will not error on any teachings. Check your own cult history back to your founder....Constantine!!!!!!!! !!

The priest is on the Church's payroll, provided by the members of his parish. Yet, we are not obligated to contribute, only if we like.
Its called donations.
How many jobs did you have where you worked for free??
None right?? lol

When I asked you if the priests were on "god's" payroll ... I meant that even if the god existed, a Jewish god would not ask Catholic priests to preach under any circumstances whatsoever.

They don't have that much cash laying around, and most of the parish/school closings are due to demographic shifts. They aren't viable or the areas they served don't have the population they once did.
The Vatican has, but they will not support simething they know is a lost cause.

First....Abraham and Moses ARE NOT Roman Catholic. Period.
Second....did Jesus ever call Mary mother or mom. Ever?

Scary? Scary is your ignorance and worship of a woman called Mary.
Clay wrote:

So since Jesus called Mary 'Woman' at the wedding of Cana, that means He never called her Mother? Oh the ignorance you guys require!
BTW when Christ referred to Mary as 'woman', it was a title used with great respect during that time period. That is more proof that you guys have no business interpreting the Bible thru a 21st century lense.
How many times in recorded history did Jesus call Mary .....mother?

My favorite statue is one of the Michaelangelo pieta. It an image of Mary holding the crucified Jesus in her arms. It puzzles me why fundies claim God is jealous of this image. I find it powerful and useful as a visual reminder of Our Lords passion.
I believe they purposely misread the ten commandments in order to falsely accuse us. I'm glad you don't share in their gross misuse of the 2nd commandment.
Yes.

Your statues and pictures are far more tangible and accessible than your deity ever was.

I'm not arguing with you on any point of scripture right now.
You and GIF are, however, having at each other on some point and I'm asking how such disputes are resolved in Protestantism.
GIF told you to open you bible and figure it out yourself, which I'm assuming you had already done or attempted to do prior to engaging GIF in your dialogue.
You are not going to answer me....and both of us know why...it says plain as day that every human being who has the capacity to known their actions or lack of are sins, are sinners.

And we both know that Christians led by the Holy Spirit know that the Word of God says Mary was a sinner...same as you and I...but Catholics ignore this Scripture and teach opposite to it.

This is not a Catholic and a Protestant both being led by the Holy Spirit and disagreeing on Scripture...It is a Catholic trashing the Word of God to follow a false teaching by his religion...and a Christian doing what Christians do...follow the teaching of Christ.

You want another??? How about Mary being taken unto wife by Joseph, per Scripture, and the idiotic teaching that she remained a virgin???!!!!

Where is this omnipotent deity when these atrocities are going on right within the "church"---"the one true church"?
WHERE is the "true" here?
And Catholics that put faith in the existence of a devil often seemed to have a need to be exorcised of supposed demons.

Religion is not good! Pulp fiction.
