Raging Whore Moans: dammit, i just viewed a Reason article.
James F. Campbell: EVERYBODY PANIC: As I posted above: FREEDOM: The societal condition in which everybody is in full, 100% control of his/her property (which includes one's own biological self). I did not create this concept, but it is a great functional definition. Take a moment and consider its implications. First thing to consider is that: "Either you own you or somebody else does."Your antiquated idea of freedom is both myopic and dangerous.

GranoblasticMan: Manfred J. Hattan: casual disregard: Nevermind the content, depraved as it is. We just became a non-free society through this decision.Meh. It'll get overturned on appeal. What will be interesting is to see how many people post in this thread defending this guys rights who also believe that his company should have been prosecuted if it had publicly endorsed someone for president. Those are the people who will make us a non-free society.[i16.photobucket.com image 720x400]

Uchiha_Cycliste: Rockstone: Uchiha_Cycliste: pkellmey: Uchiha_Cycliste: I absolutely can not accept that someone on the other side of the world could lead a completely selfless life, entirely filled with love for their common man; essentially followed in Jesus's footsteps exactly, but since that person has never ever heard of Jesus they are damned. That's bullshiat.Considering that is not a Catholic teaching, you pretty much left because you were uninformed. It happens.Well shiat, I guess the priest I talked too was uninformed too.You want to elaborate? It's the core Christian doctrine that the only way into Heaven is through Jesus. Specifically, an adult must receive the sacraments, especially communion. That's what we were taught and the priests I spoke with reinforced.You must have talked to a pre-vatican II priest, because that's not Catholic Teaching. Not at all. Last Easter Mass we had someone who converted from Islam to Catholicism. She said she was worried about whether her mother would enter heaven, and Father told her that "yes, of course she is in heaven". Good works are more important than faith in many cases. You do not need to be religious to enter heaven, according to Church Doctrine.That's pretty awesome. And not to be a prick, but can you provide some citation? I've always been told (as I said) that the sacraments were necessary for salvation.Thank you for correcting my misconceptions, on an unrelated not I really wish the church had dealt with the sexual abuse issues differently. Even considering my waning belief in a higher power, sometimes I miss being part of the Church, but I can't in good conscience support that organization.

Rockstone: / On another note, how did this topic start getting discussed in this thread? Only on Fark could that happen. Only on Fark could I reference the CCC in a thread like this...
Rockstone: Uchiha_Cycliste: I really wish the church had dealt with the sexual abuse issues differentlyYes, it should have. But it wasn't the global Churches at fault, it was individual parishes and diocese. And alot of it was just surprise. Nothing like that had ever happened before. When you think about it, schools were ill prepared to handle similar events until they started happening as well.
Uchiha_Cycliste: Rockstone: / On another note, how did this topic start getting discussed in this thread? Only on Fark could that happen. Only on Fark could I reference the CCC in a thread like this...Let me think for a second... I went from mentioning ye old "I can't define it, but I know it when I see it" to saying that while aggravating it shouldn't be surprising and in the process of elaborating spoke of our relatively puritanical society and blaming some of the limits of obscenity of the Dominionists and fundamentalists.I was asked if I though we'd have a more or less Jesusy acting people if Romney was elected.Someone else mentioned that while they may have beliefs stemming from their religious views they would never try to legislate based on those views. To which I commended that that poster was a much better person than practically all the God botherers. We discussed what I meant by God botherer. then is snowballed into a discussion of personal views on religion and theology in general.I appreciate that you took the time to throw up the relevant parts of these Papal edicts, we had discussed them and we decided my misunderstanding of Catholic doctrine stemmed from the discussions I had had with older priests who were not privy to these new fangled and awesome changes.
Uchiha_Cycliste: Is your understanding of the depth of organizational complicity different from mine?
cryinoutloud: casual disregard: Nevermind the content, depraved as it is. We just became a non-free society through this decision.He's a nasty freak, so I don't give a fark. You can find people depraved or desperate enough to do anything. It still doesn't mean that you aren't preying on them. If he's an "artist" and this free expression of ideas means so much to him, how come he isn't making movies of himself eating shiat and farking animals?Yeah, freedom, blah blah blah. fark him and fark all you perverts who enjoy looking at stuff like this. There's something wrong with you.
