ToxicMunkee: Can't these grown men take responsibility?
StreetlightInTheGhetto: Via Vatican II, nuns really don't dress that way anymore.
Rich Cream: StreetlightInTheGhetto: Via Vatican II, nuns really don't dress that way anymore.Doesn't seem fair to the priests somehow.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: Rich Cream: [ironicsurrealism.com image 379x266][www.passionistnuns.org image 393x308]The differences are subtle but I'm going with the burka because their mouths are covered too./zingVia Vatican II, nuns really don't dress that way anymore.Of course, Benedict is trying to unravel that and take away their autonomy and (gasp) dedication to (gasp) social justice and helping your fellow man over stupid effing dogma, but this is what nuns look like now:[p.twimg.com image 423x347]I'm in my 20s, grew up Catholic, and have seen far, far, far more nuns dressed like that than in a habit. I can't even remember the last time I saw a nun in a habit at all, or anything like it, actually...

raerae1980: Back when I was in Roma, I had to wear shawls to cover my shoulders if I wanted to visit the churches. Well, given my attitude toward the Catholic Church, I was not too thrilled to be wearing those smelly, sweaty shawls that other strangers had on before me. But, when in Rome...and it was a gorgeous church.

Mrtraveler01: Lee Jackson Beauregard: DancingElkCondor (farkied: Blithering idiot birther): Only a DerpCon 5bullschitt wingnut strawman version of a Liberal whines about a Christian church having a "church dress code" for women....but says nothing about the rampant abuse of women in Islam. HypocritesFTFY, or can you show me some examples of "DerpCon 5 Liberals" who "say nothing about the rampant abuse of women in Islam"?Or is any criticism of Christians supposed to be followed by "but the Scary Mooselimbs blah blah blah"?Or are we just not supposed to criticize Christians at all, except for the Scary Black Preacher?Well you know how fragile and precious Christians are in this country. Even though they are the majority in the US, they still feel unfairly treated and persecuted donchaknow.
Lorelle: Martian_Astronomer: See, this stuff originates from Bible verses like this:But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. - Matthew 5:28-29The men who can't control their lust at the sight of a woman should gouge their eyes out in accordance with their beliefs. Those who don't are hypocrites./ex-Catholic//remembers seeing lotsa women wearing veils in church (including my mom)

Bearwhale: Oh wait, I forgot that Christians pick and choose what Biblical laws they want to follow.
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: demaL-demaL-yeH: Since Rosh HaShana begins at sunset, you've allowed me to warm up for the Days of Awe: I forgive you for libeling my religion and people.You're forgiving him for the offense that you took over his words? That's some weird interpretation of the Days of Awe you've got.
Proteios1: Another one tht makes me roll my eyes profusely, is when I see women bearing cleavage or wearing a bikini with a crucifix between her partially exposed breasts. I mean it's a crucifix, not a hood ornament. Show some respect!
demaL-demaL-yeH: I see you've left the libel of my people - to which I responded - out of your comment.You've earned the farkie: noob. apologist for antisemitic rants. total assad-hole.
Lenny_da_Hog: PillsHere: On the other hand, I always wonder in situations like these involving social settings that are often times dominated by women if it's actually other women who are making these suggestions out of jealousy. It's been known to happen when they see their husbands staring at a woman hotter, younger, or thinner than them.Spend some time in a Southern Baptist church and you will wonder no longer. The women drive every bit of this bullshiat, from anti-abortion to anti-birth-control to anti-cleavage.The sit around every Wednesday night biatching about the other women in their small communities in order to rise up the social ladder themselves. Everything they do is about social competition in those churches.

To twist that around into forgiving him for the offense that you took is just a weird way to go about it. Libel of your people are not, it felt like you twisted around the meaning behind the Days of Awe in order to appear magnanimous and throw in a condescending barb towards someone you don't like.I suppose you could've done it just to have an extra thing to ask forgiveness for later though.

redheededstepchild: My father was a minor pastor at a church in Hot Springs when I was really young. When the church found out mom was cheating on him they said he should divorce her, as it says in the bible. Then, when he got us in the divorce, they told him a single father isn't the image they wanted for the church, so they fired him. He left the church and lost his faith, fell back to drugs and compleatly messed up his life, and ours. I hate churches that want to "keep up an appearance". They damage the message of god and the bible.
corteran: Could someone please remind me what century it is?
demaL-demaL-yeH: You forgive others in order to move on. It's an act of Tikkun Olam.The offense was deliberate on his part.The way you keep spinning it, it looks as though yours is also deliberate.
CptnSpldng: It was the Century of the FruitBat. I believe we are now in the Century of the Anchovy.
"Oh, I think it's time to embrace the exciting challenges presented to us by the Century of the Fruitbat," said the Bursar."We... That's the one we're just about to leave, sir.""Then it's high time we embraced them, don't you think?"

GAT_00: Lsherm: Did anyone get stoned to death?Then we're still ahead.Vote Republican! We aren't stoning women to death yet.
Monkeyhouse Zendo: Libel...Criticizing a religion for the practices of its adherents which has resulted in the deaths of infants due entirely to religious practice isn't libel. True, he did paint with a broad brush but when a religious practice kills the children on which it is performed I think it's valid to criticize both that practice's vocal supporters and those who remain silent. If your religious practice is transferring a virus that may kill a participant who cannot give consent to that practice, basic farking reason demands that measures be taken to prevent that from happening.Finding that specific religious practice to be revolting and unsanitary isn't antisemitism and pointing out that it is revolting and unsanitary isn't libel.
