Catholic Church Waging War on Women and Gays

Oct 30, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Fables of the reconstruction

“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

Parents of homosexuals, because of religion, fear death for what they have been taught are unrepentant sinners.

When their children come out as gay, it scared the bejeepers out of these parents that envision their children burning in hell.

I never did trust or believe theologians.

I suggest you bypass such nonsense and devote all the energy to your children that just happen to be born gay.

I hope you learn ... before it's too late.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

A grandmother shared her heart-breaking story on television. She wanted others to learn from what she believed was her mistake.

She told of her “previous” strict religious indoctrination, that if people were gay they would burn in hell in the hereafter.

When her grandson, whom she adored, came to her and told her he was gay, she was full of fear. She dragged him from one minister to another, who told him that if he did not change his ways, he would not be in heaven.

The grandson begged his grandmother over and over to not try to change him. He tried to convince her that he could not change who he was, but she was so filled with fear for his "eternal soul," she paid him no heed.

He took his own life.

She was sobbing with emotion, and said, that if she had it to do over again … just as he was, she would have accepted him. She said she was SO sorry!

What a tough lesson for that poor woman.

In my opinion, religion that teaches such skewed doctrine belongs in the garbage can with the rest of the slime

Men fear Death, as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other.

Synaesthesia can come in many forms as the different senses mix and melt together.

Mirror-touch

The most common type is grapheme-colour synaesthesia where people perceive words, letters and numbers as distinct colours.

A more recently described type is mirror-touch synaesthesia - in which tactile sensations are experienced when a synaesthete sees others being touched.

And Mr Wannerton's relatively rare form is known as word-taste or lexical gustatory synaesthesia.

There are many theories about why this condition exists.

Some people believe it is due to the cross-wiring of certain areas in the brain usually unconnected.

Others suggest everyone is born with these cross-connections and in most people these links melt away, but in synaesthetes they remain strong.

Dr Simner says: "We now know for a fact the brains of people with synaesthesia are different to other people in two ways.

"Brains of synaesthetes have extra clusters of connectivity and there are differences in the grey matter of the brain - an extra thickness is seen in certain areas."

Prof Jamie Ward has studied Mr Wannerton's brain in detail using brain scanning techniques.

When we've asked James to think about words which have good and less palatable tastes to him, we see many parts of the brain lighting up, including areas associated with taste, emotional processing and mental imagery, he says.

But there is still a long way to go in understanding synaesthesia, particularly in identifying genes responsible for the condition, researchers say.

The tendency to have synaesthesia runs in families, though relatives will often have different types of it.

And research as early as 1963 suggests synaesthesia can be induced by drugs such as LSD - opening up the possibility the condition may be in part due to an imbalance of chemicals in the brain.

There have even been some cases where synaesthesia occurs after an injury to the brain.

One of James's girlfriends tasted of rhubarb
But most synaesthetes, like James, feel they have always had it.

As a child it really didn't bother him.

"It felt as natural as breathing," he says.

But there are times in his adult life that the constant bombardment on his palate can be a nuisance.

When the methods plied by the leaders of cult are not "respected," as expected, the leaders can and often do become very determined to have their way BE the way.

Convince your flock that they are above earthly laws, and they go about their task with, well, religious ferocity.

Dirty tricks

In Scientology's case, as Wright explains, the church targeted any and all opponents to an almost unimaginable degree.

It coordinated campaigns to smear and frame investigative journalists, driving one courageous author, Paulette Cooper, to waste away and contemplate suicide (until the church file on Cooper was uncovered by the FBI).

Defectors from Scientology were tracked down and punished. In one case, an apostate died during her "treatment" — extended solitary confinement and controlled diet.

Then the church targeted the medical examiner who had refused to rule the death an accident.(She changed her ruling to "accidental," satisfying the church, and then retired, becoming a recluse.)

In fact, if Wright's meticulous research is correct, Scientology's nasty methods triumphed in just about every case.

Not only could the U.S. government not protect the individuals from the savagery of Scientology's dirty tricks department, it couldn't even protect itself.

After the FBI uncovered evidence in the 1960s that Scientology had systematically infiltrated government departments with church spies, Scientology's tax-exempt status was revoked, triggering a two-decade war with Washington.

According to Wright, the church in that time filed 2,500 lawsuits, swamping government lawyers. Scientology agents dug into the private lives of IRS staff, looking for evidence of drinking or marital cheating, then planted news stories on them.

It offered a $10,000 reward for dirt on the tax agency.

Some people are under the illusion that Martin Luther's cult known as "Protestant" was the first actual split of Christianity from Catholicism.

That is far from being the case. There were many, many groups of dissenters that split and were decimated through time by powerful Catholic military might.

Religion is NOT good! It encourages those who seek power to use mind-control over others and take away their ability to reason on their own.

You might be convinced that your thinking is your own mental product ... but if any dogmatic literature about gods and/or goddesses has been allowed to infiltrate your psyche ... you have been mesmerized (hypnotized) by the words of these leaders of religious cults.

I've also been under that spell of religious confusion. But since I left religion, I am simply under my own confusion that is separate from the persuasion of the leaders of religious cults that preach fantasy and want others to accept their special design of fantasy as reality.

Martin Luther was just one among countless others who yearned to have his words be perceived as the ultimate TRUTH! And his followers made his dreams of grandeur come true.

Through my relatively long life, I have heard and read many ridiculous sermons about the character-traits of gods or goddesses, but none is so silly as that the deities are hurting because after them being so considerate as to give us free will, we won't obey their commands and "willingly come home."

GEEZ LOUISE!

My guess is, the only reason Martin Luther split from Catholicism was so that he could marry the women of his dreams and legally have sex at his every whim.

He was probably tired of having an invisible god as a bed-partner.

Members of Catholic clergy that wanted the same for themselves skipped over to being Protestants, and the ongoing wars continued with great gusto as those in their own preferred cults positioned themselves to defend the dogmas that were so very dear and near to their own hearts.

Luther's group of thugs were the first group that managed to hold their own over the Catholic thugs ... but without the help of Frederick, Luther would also have met his demise on the orders of the pope.
