Whoa, that Mike McKean dude from Spinal Tap founded a religion?
Kick ass!

Heroic Poser: I have no problem with some nice guys coming up to my door asking me if I have a religion. At least they'll tell you what it's about.

Scientologists don't tell you what they believe in.

Also, Missionaries go to some scary places.
You really never hear about some Scientologists going to the poor part of town to recruit.


No need to. They don't have money, and scientology already has enough cadavers* to use their E-meters on.

*people who left scientology.

detfrost1: Uchiha_Cycliste: detfrost1: Catholics, please troll the money grubbing cultists for a while and leave the gays alone.

Thanks.


P.S. We think it's cute that you believe that abortion is wrong, however your leaders have stated that IF a gay gene is found, though there never will be one (your words not mine) then abortions would be just "fine".

did you RTFA?

Yes, I did, and I hope like hell they will take a deeper "interest" in the topic of scientology.

I was simply calling out the Christchucking Catholics on their "flexible" view on abortion.


I hear ya, can you point me to where the Vatican said getting rid of gays is ok? That sounds unlikely. Also, is it fair to be pissy at the Roman Catholic church as an evil institution, but not the individual ministries that preform good works?

As for the article, the Catholic Church really has no right being morally condescending to Uchiha_Cycliste: is it fair to be pissy at the Roman Catholic church as an evil institution, but not the individual ministries that preform good works?

Do individual ministries (or even members), who may be good, bear any responsibility or culpability for voluntarily remaining part of the broader organization?

Uchiha_Cycliste: I don't entirely understand your comment, but really want to. Can you explain?

Parents bring their children into the church/cults. Parents bring children into their political party. Political parties and churches do some good things and some bad things but regardless the members keep the cycle going for the most part. If the churches/political parties didn't exist would people still band together somehow, in what different and more evolved way, to do the good and bad that the churches/cults/political parties do now? Would they prefer anarchy?

It was Bill Donahue (not the talk show guy) that said it. And, yes, I grew up in a Catholic household, I think my family does wonderful works, but if they so much as mention their religion around me, I leave the room/house/event whatever, and go home. I don't make a fuss, I don't make a grand exit, I simply...vanish.

No, that honor goes to Cult of Objectivism Founder Ayn Rand.

Not if they are ignorant of that fact, OR if they acknowledge it and remain involved for the purpose of helping. If they earnestly believe that they can do more good associated with it than not, I think it's cool. I don't think they do bear culpability, especially since their absence would mean/do nothing to the Church as a whole.
I kind of think of a lot of more Modern Catholic churches as doing what they want, and taking cues from Rome, but not necessarily following orders lock step. I guess it would have to be evaluated on a case by case basis. What of a church that is simply called a Catholic church but has no other ties to Ratzinger?

Uchiha_Cycliste: NeauxFear: Catholics should try to give the Church of Scientology the respect any well-established religion deserves. The fact that child-molesters are against abortion just seems weird to me, but that's another discussion for another day.

So let me ask you, prick, do you know what one of the key elements in molesting children is?


Surprise?

BTW, the police would like it if you stopped sneaking into the bathroom at the high school to fap. Also, you left your copy of The Fountainhead in there last week.

Uchiha_Cycliste: I don't think they do bear culpability, especially since their absence would mean/do nothing to the Church as a whole.

It would remove their individual support. I can see your point in trying to "make things better from the inside" but the concept of an individual having no effect on the whole applies in the reverse as well. If the institution is corrupt, the individual trying to do good within it: 1) won't change the overall corruption of the institution; and 2) implicitly taints the good that the individual is actually doing by association with the institution.

I run into this with the LDS Church. Individual members are nice and good, but the institution is just so farking wrong on so many issues that I can't in good conscience be affiliated with it.

Citation needed times a million. A Catholic leader would be someone like the Pope, not Mel Gibson or a drunk guy you met in South Boston. Unless it's in an encyclical, it didn't happen.

Islam largely gets a free pass, but even Muslims get the occasional soft core mockery from the wings.

Are you insane, or just joking? There's more dead-serious "KILL THEM ALL" about muslims than everyone else combined.

Just to be that guy (it's my job I hear):

Hey, they could always skip the abortion and just leave the organization... Who cares? It's just like signing a non-disclosure agreement... Either sign on the line or go do something else!

Seriously, it's their religious freedom do set whatever rules they want. The people could always NOT join their hippie commune which is their choice.

Or they're gullible? It sure would be funny to see Guy Fawkes rent the basement under their temple though, larf. :/

/doesn't mean some of that, guess which parts!

It ended up being the average, typical Fark religion thread.

5/10.

I'm Catholic and the few lame troll attempts were even terrible.

I did have popcorn, though. That got a 9/10. Tad overcooked.

These threads would be more interesting if it wasn't just Totalfarker's fellating themselves over their $5 club and people mentioning popcorn and watching the thread.
And yes, I realize I'm not contributing.

I thought I had a funny scientology comic somewhere, but I guess I don't so here's george bush moving around on a small car:

Actually no... if you google for "mark headley" and read what he has to say, you get to find out how Scientology will send their goons to grab you and drag you back into their Waco-cult-like compound in Riverside, CA known as the Sea Org. From there, there is no escape. People have died trying to leave the place.

Oh well if Bill Donahue said it... *rolls eyes*

I believe the official position of the Catholic Church on gays is that it is not a choice, and being gay is not in and of itself a sin. But gay sex (like all non-procreative sex) is a sin, and so gays are called to celibacy.
