Perhaps Washington D.C. should take the step of banning the use of any laws or courts based in foreign law outside the U.S. Constitution. I think a number of places have already done that in the U.S. If the Catholic institutions want Sharona law so bad, they can take it to Saudi Arabia.

Georgetown hasn't strayed from it's humble Catholic beginnings. It's always been a Jesuit school, and Jesuits are about as Catholic as atheists most of the time.

Maybe he misunderstood.

Sharia Catholic law! The Moozlums Catholics are invading our country and contaminating our purity of essence.

"Catholic" means "universal" in Latin. Which should include people with doctrinal disagreements. It's WJWD you asshat.

It's run by Jesuits, what exactly does he expect? These are people who supported free education for all back in a time where in certain places that could get you executed. And in France it got three Jesuits executed. These are people who upon finding a new culture went "Yeah we got this book called the Bible, but anyways, what do you call this fruit? And what is that statute over there for?".

The author says that Georgetown has violated church teaching for decades by inviting speakers who support abortion rights and refusing to obey instructions the late Pope John Paul II issued in 1990 to church-affiliated colleges and universities.

meh. no reason for us to get involved. if the school decides to change its policy then that's up to them.

It's run by Jesuits, who don't really give a damn about what the Vatican or some cranky idiot think. They've been banned by the church twice for not playing along. The response from the average Jesuit over a claim they're not following Catholic doctrine would be "Look at all the fark I don't give".

I went to highschool with his son, also named Bill. His son was an asshole. It was a catholic school with a lot of rich assholes.

I saw his father once. He showed up at school in a dark trench coat and sun glasses. Creepy farker.

you know what I find strange? people who say they're 150% catholic when it comes to pro-life/abortion issues...but who turn into cold hearted Ayn Rand cultists when the subject turns towards the Church's social justice/caring for the sick and poor stance. I was told that if you wanted to be Catholic, you had to follow ALL the church doctrine rules - even the ones you didn't like. if you skipped a few steps then you weren't really catholic, you were just a hypocrite.

For about 10 years, I thought the line "It shakes all over like a jelly fish" from "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" was actually "It shakes all over like a Jesuit". I was pretty disappointed when I found out I was wrong.

I don't think it is all that common. With Bill Donohue and Rick Santorum they have come to the fore but I don't think these farkers are at all like most Catholics.

I didn't say they were...but the cafeteria catholic syndrome is more common than I'd like. I've got friends who are exactly like old Ricky boy Santorum: they're against abortion but are just fine with screwing over the poor and bombing the f*ck outta anyone who gets in the way of US foreign policy.

I just find it really weird. Catholics, I have found, are pretty much the least evangelical of the Christians. Then people like Santorum come around and show me that Catholics can be insane too.

I don't classify Santorum as catholic. Oh i'm sure he thinks he's part of that faith...but his economic policies have nothing in common with what the Church says he should do for poor people.

Yeah people like Paul Ryan are funny that way. They somehow think they can ignore the stuff about social justice. Truth is, openly being against it is enough in principle to get them excommunicated.

Ryan got biatch slapped upside the head for being an Ayn Rand cultist. you cannot screw over the sick and poor, then say you're a follower of Christ. it just doesn't work that way. And the Church calling Ryan out on it was something long overdue. Not that he bothered to listen but hey - at least the Church stuck to their guns.

I agree. I don't buy the no true Scotsman for the most part but I know way too many Catholics to think Santorum speaks for them. On the other hand the Catholic Church really doesn't give a shiat about poor people. They refuse communion to Dem pols for abortion but they don't refuse it for Reps that don't care about the poor.

The thing that was really amazing (well not really) was that Paul Ryan doubled down and insisted that it was the Jesuits that were WRONG about Catholic teaching.

one of them lives at home with his mother and runs a soft core porn photography business out of her basement while collecting unemployment and food stamps. oddly enough, he considers himself a devoutly religious man (although he almost never attends church), votes straight ticket GOP and worships Ayn Rand and Objectivism. he gets very upset when I point out that he couldn't survive without state assistance, and that the Republicans would, if given a chance, quickly outlaw his main source of income.

it goes without saying that he considers me deluded for voting libertarian.

Promiscuous mothers with your incestuous fathers.
Engreat souls condemned for all eternity,
Obtained by immoral observance a domineering deity.

Impulsive sabbath.

I have another friend of mine, retired vet (forced out after 20 years due to his weight issues). works for the state government. still not quite right in the head after his last tour in Iraq, but doesn't talk about it. anywho...due to some issues left over from his service tour(s), he has a sleeping disorder. occasionally falls asleep at work. this is well documented, it's in his medical jacket and he's getting treatment for it. But, his bosses don't like that he can't help but take the occasional powernap if left alone for more than 30 min. so he rapidly acquired a pile of disciplinary reports after he got back from Iraq. so much so that he was about to get fired from his state job...and you REALLY gotta work at getting fired from there. Union steps in, saves his ass. hooks him up with a vet affairs doc who's starting to get him back on track.

what's he do? votes straight ticket Republican. rants about the evils of unions, thinks Gov. Walker is an awesome dude, wants to see that sort of 'reform' here in Pennsylvania. Also thinks Ayn Rand had some terrific ideas, and that Wall Street conjures free gold out of thin air.

he also considers me a traitor to the cause for voting libertarian.

2012-05-20 01:52:56 AM  
We know a remote farm in Lincolnshire, where Mrs. Buckley lives; every July, peas grow there..

Why? That doesn't make any sense. Sorry. There's no known way of saying an English sentence in which you begin a sentence with 'in' and emphasize it. Get me a jury and show me how you can say "in July", and I'll go down on you. That's just idiotic, if you'll forgive me my saying so. That's just stupid, "in July"; I'd love to know how you emphasize 'in' in "In July"...impossible! Meaningless!

This is not news if you know anything about the man or his history.
