I went to a Catholic wedding in Texas once and saw the father berate an elderly woman in the middle of the service for not properly standing and kneeling as he dictated. Like, stopped the ceremony, walked down the aisle and berated her to her face until she cried. Then went back and acted as if nothing happened and finished the ceremony. I told him he was an asshole after; he seemed entirely unconcerned.

I dealt with some asshole priests growing up Catholic, but never saw that level of rudeness and insensitivity.
Oh, and go screw yourself Strickland. Just like every other church that plays politics, you should be taxed as a business.

If you ever read past "turn the other cheek" it is all about how if someone wants to fark you over, go out of your way to insure they can do so, so, yeah, Jesus was about farking over anyone attacked by assholes (he specifically calls the people doing this "evildoers", so it is an explicit demand to lay down and accept being raped).

These so-called Christians are one of the reasons as to why I'm an atheist.  Notice how their view points align with creeps, hatemongers, racists, child molesters, and every other drecky part of society.

First of all, this guy (this lowlife bishop) is probably actually an atheist as well.  He just believes in his pocketbook and his power.  He doesn't give two shiats about Jesus, never has.  Again, all he cares about is his pocketbook and his power.

I guarantee, we'll find out soon enough he's a creepy molester.

I sent this off to the Catholic Courier, my local Rochester, NY Catholic paper. We'll see if they print it, for whatever value of "print" exists in a pandemic.

I can't speak for other religions in the Rochester area but I'm incredibly tired of the local Catholic clergy not speaking to the real concerns of their congregation as they seek out answers from their faith.

I mean, this week's readings included these verses:

If I tell the wicked, "O wicked one, you shall surely die, " and you do not speak out to dissuade the wicked from his way, the wicked shall die for his guilt, but I will hold you responsible for his death.

Yet the homily I heard this morning was about how we need to confront our children on the evils of cohabitation.

Anyway, here's what I sent them. We need to keep our religious leaders accountable.

My heart is heavy this week as we approach Sunday Mass. I am deeply saddened by the events of the past week where we discovered that one of our fellow Rochesterians died in custody of the police under tragic circumstances. As a grieving man, I would like to hear the advice & consolation of priests & deacons whose prayer life brings them insight into God's lovingkindness. I fear I will not hear this. I did not hear it after Ferguson, or Charlottesville, or George Floyd.

Our city is looking for answers, & we are looking to men of faith for those answers but we are not finding them, despite being called to eradicate the evil of discrimination by race in Gaudium et Spes, & despite the fact that this evil has been with us in Rochester for decades, despite the fact we can name countless others in Rochester who died in police custody; it is now undeniably at our doorstop. How do our spiritual leaders comfort those whose souls are recoiling from anti-Black racism?

How do they guide those who have been led down a path contrary to God's intent? Should we as Catholics guide our brethren back to God's path? Or should we just... not?

That's because he was entirely unconcerned what you or anyone else might think. Like all priests, he knows unequivocally that he is in the right.  If you want to disagree, you can quite literally go to hell.

You should have kicked his ass, but being Texas, he was probably packing.

Reading between the lines, no one else ripped him a new one, even during the ceremony. And unsure if the elderly woman was a relative of the bride/groom.

The reason there are soo many rules about going to Hell is because there were not, you wouldn't need priests.

Confession, baptisms, last rites, marriages, you need priests for all of those.  It's job security.

So the Catholics biggest beef is abortion.

Ironically enough, during the Roe v Wade decision, the Republicans had a supermajority. The court voted 7-3 in favor of Roe Vs Wade. There were 6 Republicans on the bench at the time.

Of the dissenters, only Rehnquist (R-Nixon) and White (D-Kennedy's only appointee) voted against it.

Tell that to a fundie or a Cat-lick and see their heads explode.

/Catholic that doesn't like abortion but thinks universal healthcare and helping the kid once s/he is born is the way to go
 
2020-09-07 12:27:34 AM  
Are they trying to say that Democrats aren't vile enough to be Catholics? Because otherwise I'm confused how one can be Catholic and Republican. UNLESS! Maybe they're saying both sides are bad and we should be welcoming the Catholic Comrades.

I find it interesting that the Bible talks a lot about how great it is to be poor and to suffer. One could make the case that the whole thing was invented out of thin air to keep the poor suffering masses inline...

That's because they (presumably you) stay quiet, do good things, stay away from politics, and don't draw attention to your faith. Kinda like Jesus said. Good on you.

That's a sin, my son, but perhaps an indulgence could be granted if you used some propane accessories, properly blessed of course.  I have some for sale.
