I'm sure when JC founded his church on a rock, he envisioned a church with its own country, bureaucracy and court system. Billions of dollars of assets. Gilded everything. Idol worship. And the power to deny naughty people entrance into heaven.

It amuses me that so many people are arguing over whether or not the Catholic church should be supported because they actively covered up paedophilia in the preisthood and not whether or not the Church should be supported because they believe in a magical undead Jew on a stick who is his own father and will sometimes grant you wishes and take you to a mystical paradise dimension when you die if you telepathically tell him he's really awesome.

Would it be reasonable to expect a rational person to report child abuse to the authorities? Of course it would, but why would you expect reason from a person so irrational that they believe the fantasies of what were essentially the comic book superheroes of ancient peoples?

I mean sure, don't give the Church your money because they hushed up the kid diddling and all, but more importantly don't give the Church your money because when it comes right down to it they're delusional.

Fark Rye For Many Whores: iheartscotch: When criticizing someone for grammar; it might be best to spell your criticism without using numbers in the place of words.

/ just sayin

It wasn't a grammar critique, and it wasn't really spelling - I was performing an avant-garde mockery of your logical deficiencies disguised as a spelling check disguised as a spelling fail disguised as twitterspeak. I understand if it was too much for you.


Ah; avant-garde eh?

I heard a funny joke the other day: why did the hipster burn his mouth on a slice of pizza?

Because, he ate it before it was cool.

Tell me; ever burn your mouth on a slice of pizza?

It was translated into Chinese from the original Italian after being converted into Latin, and then back again via Babelfish. Other than that, it's perfectly clear.

No, but I'm wondering how a battery implanted in his chest managed to pop out and hit his head in Mexico

Benedict, 85, has had an assortment of health challenges during his time as head of the Catholic Church which resulted for one thing in a secret procedure to install a pacemaker and later a new battery. It's been reported that hit his head during a visit to Mexico.

I don't suppose it matters that he was canonized (sp?) in 2005 ish. But the cases started to appear in 1983 and on. The real media explosion around 2001-2003. Not a Rat-boy fan, or even Catholic, but I don't get people's hate for him.

It's time for the truth to be known! When he was young, he was injected with an experimental Nazi retrovirus. Over the years, the medication he's been taking to suppress it has been slowly losing its effect. Already his body is transforming. You can see in his latest pictures that a little bit of a Charlie Chaplin mustache is beginning to sprout.

With that logic; you shouldn't buy anything from Germany, Japan, Russia or China. Because of past atrocities.

With that logic; you shouldn't support the Democratic Party. Because of slavery.

Hey now; the pope is only infallible sometimes. He has to be wearing his special Pope hat (Miter), have his special Pope staff(ferula), sit in his special Pope chair( the chair of st.peter), wear his special Pope scarf( no idea)and speak only regarding matters of the faith. Then and only then is the Pope is infallible.
