Benedict XVI: " The Second Vatican Council is a true sign of God" - Vatican Insider

  1. If it is a true sign of god for the modernization and democratization of the church, away from it's medieval, patriarchal autocracy of nefarious, deeply closeted, self loathing, elderly priests, why does he obscure it's significance and obstruct it's natural path to much needed reform of the institution?

      There is one thing for certain- the Pope does not answer to an aetheist like you. Go work on your own kind- people wrapped up in their own heads- looking for utopia within their brain.

    2. Athiest who? I talk to God all the time. It must be a different one than the Pope talks to though. My God wants to empower all his children, not just a few elderly old men who pretend celebacy and then want to tell everybody else how to have sex.

  2. Methinks it is you who are the atheist, Tim. Your perspective has become so warped that it is the institution you revere and worship, forsaking the one true God that it was originally built to honor and long since forgotten, in favor of the brittle, dusty doctrines and dogmas never changed or discarded once enshrined.

    We are all God's children, you me, the pope and Saloth Sar. The pope and Saloth may have more in common than one would think. The least denizen of the Black Hole may have greater faith and more holiness in God's eyes than Mother Teresa. To her credit, we know that Mother would never deny this... and there lies the difference between you and she.

  3. See how these Christians (and non as well) love one another.

  4. You have trouble with sexual morality teachings of the Church. That seems to be a stumbling block for many. Does the God you talk to about sex agree with the God in sacred scripture? Fornication, adultery, homosexual acts are grave sins. What God has joined let no man put apart. The God of the Catholic Church is perfectly in line with those teachings. Is yours?

    Cheers
    Paul

  5. These pelvic sins to which you refer are small potatoes compared to the big ones, greed, gluttony, sloth, envy, avarice and on and on. Yet because someone may be in a committed relationship over the course of many years that does not have the blessing of the church, divorced or actively homosexual, all lesser sins, you would exclude them from the community.

    We're all sinners. Some more than others. Being a sinner does not make you less Catholic. Do you believe you are not a sinner? That you are better than a divorced person? Someone in an unsanctioned marriage. A single mother? A homosexual? Maybe you should look in the mirror, examine the way you live and how you treat others. There might be some sin there that dwarfs those that you in your false righteousness would deny God's sacraments and community. If we didn't sin we wouldn't need God's sacraments and community. If only the righteous were allowed into the community, there would be no community.

    Since when did Jesus say that the Church gets to pick and choose among those that come to her for succor? Who would be worthy to do this choosing? Someone with no sin? Good luck finding that guy.

      You presume to rank sins by what you think should be the ranking of sins, starting with worst. Have you not read that leading astray, or showing a child how to sin, that it would be better for that man to have a millstone hung around his neck and to be thrown into the depths of the sea? Do you know how heavy a millstone can be? I just happen to know- the ones I saw my father deal with in my youth were about 240 pounds ! Can you swim with that?
      But, of course, you are smarter than God.

    2. I am not smarter than God, Mark. I may not even be smarter than you. I am more inclusive. I think that's a good thing.

      I take that back. You apparently think that ostracization an demonization of homosexuals is beneficial to child development. I definitly am smarter than you.
