Defrocked Pastor Becomes Unlikely Hero

Jesus never excluded ANYONE except hypocrits... those who claimed to know what sin was and wasn't. God is love and we are called to love everyone... even those who you believe to be sinners. Who better to preach than those who know what it's like to be excluded?  (Jun 25, 2007 | post #13)

Bishop praises Iranian leadership

Dear Marionnete: You are correct that bishops and other church heirarchy are entitled to their opinions. Unfortunately many of the faithful adhere to the belief that they still speak for the Church. The Church expects us to examine the issues and our conscience along with the teachings of the Church and come to our own conclusions. Many Christians still look to their church leaders to do their thinking for them. Perhaps that was safe in the past when people couldn't read and were not encouraged to think and question. Thanks for your comments.  (Apr 15, 2007 | post #5)

Doctor Arrested in Undercover Drug Sting

Addiction is nearly impossible to overcome without falling deeply into an abyss and that is what it might take for this poor man to get it. He needs to suffer and make retribution to those he has hurt but he also has to be forgiven,  (Apr 11, 2007 | post #3)

Catholics Slam Bloggers Hired by Edwards

Ouch, that hurts. While the Church's pedophile scandal was a 9/11 to this Catholic heart, I would like to think there is a difference between "being engaged in organized" pedophilia and turning a blind eye to it. I think the Church is responsible for doing the latter.  (Apr 10, 2007 | post #24)

Local News - Man Charged With Rape of School Boy

I completely agree with what Mad in Atlanta said about idiotic parents who let their kids go around unsupervised. Yes, it's a "sick" world and yes, we have to blame the perverts who prey on kids. We cannot change their perversion or behavior. All the more reason why we are responsible for doing what WE can do to protect the kids.  (Apr 10, 2007 | post #9)
