  1. Hokey smoke that must have hurt getting inked in! Maybe now she can headbutt the unsaved until they become one of the flock now. At least everything looks like it's spelled correctly.
  2. Will it be cleaned by illegal immigrants from Hell? Who issues fake work visas in Heaven?
  3. This is pretty sick. I know most of my posts recently have been bashing the Catholic Church, but if they'd stop doing nasty things I'd have less to say. So a priest molests a woman he's giving Last Rights to. He faces one year in jail and up to $4000 in fines. Shouldn't they add elder abuse to that to get a lengthier sentence? The punishment definitely doesn't seem to fit the crime. Anyway, here's the article: https://apnews.com/6a2918a144a740468f9066624cddfaea
  4. 1) ToT and News have been folded into Controversy and Conflict Club. It's accessible from Clubs link under the Browse tab on the toolbar. Other subs have been swallowed into greater categories, like the Debate Area has the Lion's Den and the Colosseum. 2) It looks like Burnedout has been scoured from the site. His threads have been deleted, along with all of their replies. Also, it looks like all the reputation points he gave out have gone too. Have no idea what happened there. Hope that helps.
  5. I suppose something like this was inevitable, but here it is. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/12/nyregion/john-capparelli-priest-killed.html
  6. So Pete Davidson made some off color joke about the Church and they got their feelings hurt. While they state that the only acceptable bias is against the Catholic Church, don't they deserve it? To any rational thinking person the Church as an entity has lost any moral credibility, but they still think they deserve the benefit of the doubt. I heard them say that people shouldn't make jokes about the victims in this case, but I can't help but to think that they think the victims are themselves and not the sexual abuse survivors. https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/news/catholic-leaders-demand-snl-apologize-for-“alarming”-pete-davidson-sex-abuse-joke/ar-BBUEHLG?OCID=ansmsnnews11
  7. So I see Cardinal Pell got six years for his crimes. What's striking (or maybe not) is the extent his secular political allies have closed ranks around him. It's kind of sad, but putting the Church above reproach is the sort of thing that helped lead it into this morass of perversion. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/cardinal-george-pell-sentenced-to-six-years-in-prison-for-child-sex-abuse/ar-BBUH3Vo?OCID=ansmsnnews11
  8. It was a joke. I was soliciting opinions on the matter because I thought it was an interesting subject.
  9. I think that thing just gave me a seizure.
  10. I tried reading the Bible, but did it kind of backwards. I got through the New Testament with only moderate confusion, but gave up at the end of the Old Testament, as, as I've said before, it reeked of torture porn.
  11. I don't believe in unity/It's just one more abandoned dream/Once the people get together it's easy to see it's just a matter of time before they come after me Cool to be You, Descendants
  12. And it's over. The Cardinal has tendered his resignation to the Pope. At least he won't have more opportunities to further damage children's lives and draw a paycheck for doing it. Also, the article gets more into what Cardinal Barbarin actually covered up. https://religionnews.com/2019/03/07/french-court-convicts-cardinal-of-not-reporting-child-abuse/
  13. Six month suspended sentence. Wow. Color me unimpressed. Anyway, it's a step forward. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/french-cardinal-guilty-of-abuse-cover-up/ar-BBUtWKx?OCID=ansmsnnews11
  14. I always thought Marxist Socialism was about ownership. Factory workers own what they make and can trade it for other things they want or need. Middle and upper management, who don't actually produce anything, get taken out of the equation, leading to the Worker's Paradise. Since the rich only have money because they own things and don't actually make them, they get taken out too, especially if they don't have anything of value to trade for. They'll have to get jobs like the rest of the workers. Communism is about everything being owned by the people, and everyone taking what they need and giving what they can. Although the ideal is to not have government, it needs to be there to make sure distribution is fair and equitable. Whether that's country, county, or community-wide is questionable. Both are subject to abuse and anti-capitalist, Communism probably more so than Socialism. I don't see how either can really remain pure in today's society, especially when so much of our lives are online and how intertwined world economies are. It's a nice idea, but not quite feasible in my opinion. Kind of like trickle-down economics is a great business model until it's actually put into effect. Anyway, that's my take on all of this.
