And on the 7th day, the Lord said: OH SNAP.

"Our problem with Representative Ryan is that he claims his budget is based on Catholic social teaching,"

I have a problem with that for entirely different reasons.

Father Reese: "Survival of the fittest may be okay for Social Darwinists but not for followers of the gospel of compassion and love."

Well said. Though I still maintain that the budget shouldn't be based on ANY religion. Well, maybe Voodoo.

If one thinks of the government as a priest and the taxpayer as a vulnerable young altar boy...

THIS, so very much THIS!

Is this the thread where Catholicism is OK now? I can't keep up with which Catholics are evil bastards hell-bent on destroying the world and remaking it in their image, which ones are rape raping, which ones are imposing theocratic rule on America, and which ones are nice kind loving people who actually think with their farking brains and not only with what is written in a two thousand year old book.

You make it sound like I have to choose between disliking Paul Ryan and disliking the Catholic Church.

This kind of thing seems to happen quite frequently for Republican Catholics.

They always seem to forget that the Church doesn't have the overwhelming hatred of the poor that the GOP does.

There's some from column A and some from column B.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.

F*ck you, Paul Ryan.

All I know is I'm tired of having to think for myself with all these differing views and shades of grey. Isn't there a news network or something that can package this all into nice little soundbytes so I can be told how to think? I need to know Who The Bad Guys Are. Things need to be easily compartmentalized, set apart from one another, given a stark contrast. When Catholics are advancing the cause of socialist liberal hell, it blurs the lines, and I find myself adrift without an anchor.

This is not okay.

The terrorists are bad. Puppies are cute. America is the best nation on earth.

"It is also demanded by the common good that civil authorities should make earnest efforts to bring about a situation in which individual citizens can easily exercise their rights and fulfill their duties as well. For experience has taught us that, unless these authorities take suitable action with regard to economic, political and cultural matters, inequalities between the citizens tend to become more and more widespread, especially in the modern world, and as a result human rights are rendered totally ineffective and the fulfillment of duties is compromised."

Just because they're rapists doesn't mean they're not right sometimes. Even the worst people aren't bad in every single facet of their lives.

Why would you base a budget on a religious teaching?

That just makes no goddamn sense at all.

This is why I'm not a Republican anymore. They are just completely nonsensical nowadays.

Lando Lincoln: Why would you base a budget on a religious teaching?


He's not basing it on a religious teaching. He's basing it on a bastardized and corrupt reading of a religious teaching. There's a big difference between those two.

What the Bishops think Ryan's budget may look like:

Call me crazy, but I think would should base out budget on... MATH.

You know... We take in as much as we spend or more so we can pay off the sh*t we bought 30 years ago.

I'm not feeling to many takers on my idea.

You have a better chance of fitting a camel through the eye of a needle than finding a Republican who can recite the Golden Rule.

At least not on the Republican side of the aisle, no.

Republican "Christians" are the biggest social Darwinists around.

Well said. Though I still maintain that the budget shouldn't be based on ANY religion. Well, maybe Voodoo.


My personal budget is based on snake handling.

Sometimes the Catholic Church is awesome.
Paul Ryan is always a dick/tool
 
2012-04-25 07:56:56 PM
Ryan has angered the Jesuits. This is not what can be termed a good move.

"Look, guys... I'm white, I've proven that I can have white children with a white woman. These religious people will totally be on board with my message. We'll gather up the flock and just smash the sh*t out of these poor people. It'll be fun! You can make the check out to "P-A-U-L..."

Someone saying that Paul Ryan's budget is not based on his religious leanings is the nicest thing anyone could say about Paul Ryan's budget.

I'm OK with the religion of child rapists getting into a fight with the cult of ego. Hopefully they'll kill each other off and leave the world a better place.

So who will be the first Republican to call the Jesuits socialists? Hell, for all I know it has already been done.
 
2012-04-25 08:40:15 PM
Should have stuck with the much more vague and decentralized "Christian values" label. No one can claim to speak for all Christians, but the Catholics have their specific brand pretty well locked down.
 
2012-04-25 08:42:33 PM
This is the side of the Catholic Church that I admire. Awesome slapdown.
 
2012-04-25 08:42:36 PM
While I loathe the Catholic bishops for unrelated reasons, I have no problem supporting them when it comes to calling out Ryan's bullshiat.

Fark Paul Ryan. And Ayn Rand. gets several helpings of 'Rot in hell you hateful, hypocritical biatch, your shiatty novel and its fanbase have skullfarked America'.

Dear Republicans, your messiah you worship was an atheist and her doctrine was the basis for the Church of Satan.
