What a rediculous statement.



If people are moving away from organized religion then maybe you should find out why? Instead of your defensive approach towards anyone who says anything about your church you should not over react.

In america the law says people can speak out. People can protest something they disagree with or don't like.

Since the beginning of mankind religions of all types have played into the lives of people, and after periods of time those religious beliefs disappeared and other religious beliefs replaced them.

No one is advocating putting anyone in jail or charging anyone for practicing their religion. That is just rediculous and fearful on your behalf for believing so.

When I see the constant arguing, name calling, and insults on this forum between catholics and protestants over silly bible terminologies and doctrines it makes me wonder why would God allow such divisivness to continue, if his world is about harmony and togetherness.

So far I like this Pope Francis. He is breaking barriers that have been in place by the old guard vatican for centuries. He is talking TO the people not AT the people.

He can't make everyone happy, but its obvious he is not an ultra conservative as his predecessors, and many of the red hats in the vatican and he is not afraid of making change.

I believe big changes in the church are coming. Pope Francis knows young people are tired of the jam down your throat doctrines and policies/procedures of the church that we here over and over, and he is more about addressing current event issues that affect our daily lives today. THAT IS GOOD NEWS!

Marxism- Leninism made atheism the official doctrine of the Soviet Union. It advocated the control, suppression and elimination of religion. The decree 'separation of Church and state'(sound familiar?) was implemented by the atheist and religion was barred from being taught anywhere in the Union.
- Church bells were barred from being rung in public.
-Church land was seized.
- The Peoples Commisariate For Enlightenment was established in 1917 for the purpose of removing all religion from the school curriculum.

-Orthodox Patriarch Tikhon of Moscow responded by excommunicating the Soviet leadership on January 19th, 1918.
-They responded by arresting and murdering dozens of Bishops, hundreds of priests and multitudes of religious laity.

Yup, the parallels of their speeches on religion and that of June VanDerbarks posts are startling.
After June meets her maker, a new June will take her place; bringing the ideology of June to fruition. History will repeat itself. We are all screwed.

Yes, he is reforming the Church. He is shaking up the curia. His plan for more laity and woman to get involved can be good.
But keep in mind Michael, Pope Francis does not have the authority to change Church dogma and doctrine.
Marriage is still marriage.
Priests are still men.
Abortion is still a sin.
Regardless, the Church needs to be reminded of why they are there.

Did you ever drink natural milk from animals with green pasture?
see healthy or not healthy..
What deference between natural and plastic chemical?
Did you need diploma or to be educated what so ever?
Whats deference between system of control
or
system of righteousness?
If you choose system who can or who can't but accuse and abuse others are you for sure you belong to righteousness.
If you abuse your body as addiction are you going declare yourself as criminal person?!
Is that against system of body or system where you live as authority?
How many within authority used addiction drugs alcohol sex money-power and so on?
Did they are criminals or belong to system which liked control?
What a about system of righteousness?
What deference between system of righteousness and conciseness from system of money and power?

In the same way that Karl Marx ushered in the atheist regimes of Russia and China.
Obamas seemingly harmless socialism will be the prelude to our own Atheistic empire to come. That's not being fearful or paranoid at all.

The Inquisition(s)
Roman Inquisition by Pope Paul III - subjects who were found guilty of heresy were ordered to go on a religious pilgrimage, wear a cross in public, fined money, or in very rare cases: a public scourging that mounted to a spanking. No known deaths.
Portuguese Inquisition 1542 - carried our by King Manuel I, who had asked the Pope (Leo X) for permission to carry out the Inquisition in his Kingdom. The tribunal was made up of people hand picked by the royal family and not by the Church. This resulted in political prisoners; falsely accused innocents and heretics. Most were slapped on the hand. Rarely people were tortured and killed. Estimated death toll from the Portuguese Inquisition: 1,100.
Spanish Inquisition - like the Portuguese Inquisition it was carried out by the Monarchy and NOT the Catholic Church.
Less than 2% of all subjects were tortured.
Historian Henry Kamen contends that some 'popular' accounts of the Iquisition (those that describe scenes of uncontrolled sadistic torture) are not based in truth. Kamen argues that torture was never used as a punishment but only to get elicit information or a confession. Modern scholars have determined that torture was used in less than 2% of all cases, less than 1% a second time and never more than that. The torture lasted up to 15 min.
Wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_Inquisition
Atheist Soviet Union talley: 60 Million killed, untold millions imprisoned and tortured
China: 78 Million murdered, at least twice as many tortured
Hitler: 12 Million murdered (6 million for being Jews) countless imprisoned and tortured.
As a Catholic, I'm ashamed that any Catholic would murder someone. But you as an Atheist ignore what your political anti religious mindset has done to humanity. We are doomed to repeat what the atheist did in the 20th century.

Interesting article. I can't seem to find anyone that agrees with their figures. They say 30,000 killed. Other historians say 2,000. Confrint and Concerned in Brazil say 50 million.
What this article did acknowledge - and that jives with what I said- is that the Inquisition where torture and murder occurred, was carried out not by the Catholic Church, but by the governments of Spain and Portuguel. Spain threatened the Pope (Sixtus VI) with withdrawing military support if he didn't allow them to organize the tribunals. At that time, the only reason why the Turks didn't attack Rome was because Spain was a Catholic country with a powerful army. The Pope gave in. But when word reached Rome of the practices of the Spanish Monarchy during their inquisition, he promulgated a new bull:

"many true and faithful Christians- because of the testimonies of enemies, rivals and slaves- have been locked up in secular prisons, tortured and condemned... Given over to secular arms to be executed at great danger to their souls, giving a pernicious example and causing scandal to many"

Every year during the holidays, atheism shows its ugly powerful head. New lawsuits are filed. Protests against God and religion make the news. A cross needs to be taken down.... A display of the ten commandment needs to be removed....
This is merely the first wave. The next generation will not be so kind. God help us with the generation after that.

What you need to understand is that the inquisitions were documented meticulously. For the first time they are being studied in depth. What they have found is that the legends developed for propoganda wars while effective are from being reality. Most people are utterly clueless as to the history behind them and what took place and why. They as do ignorant Catholics make automatic assumptions.

The BBC which has been traditionally hostile to the church aired the fantasy of the legends that live on. Scholars stated openly that such deep hatred and animosity of the legends devoid of fact will be ignored by many, because they don't want to believe the truth. Prof. Henry Kamen is highly credible and he stated what they found was shocking as it flies against what had previously been believed. Since they could not win on the battlefield against the Spanish they took to the pen.

Many Protestants today think it was about them or to round up the Jews. Not even close. One has to understand the history and what was happening. In WW2 Americans looked with great suspicion on Germans. The Japanese were rounded up and put in concentration camps. America wasnt real friendly to the Irish either. You know those Catholics. lol Forget that it was a Catholic who got the French Catholics to fight the British for the founding of USA.

The fact is the Spanish Inqusitions are hugely overflated and was much more merciful than what was going on without them. That would be a traditional Lynch mob wild west style. Inquistors who were found to be abusing the rights established were removed and some were. Its so easy for Monday morning quarterbacks. The concerned nutjob in Brazil is a perfect example of a complete idiot who drowns out any reality quoting more people killed than existed in Europe, but the kind of people in here dont care about any sense of reality or truth they just want to rage as if Protestants havent done far worse with their independent inquistions, tortures and burnings. Its ignorance at its height.
