The Catholic church, especially the pope, are also mass murderers. Just look at what their lawyers are arguing in court!
I was born and raised Catholic and my faith is very important to me. Unlike some people however, I am able to separate my faith in God with the politics of the Church.
The history of the Catholic church is not one of kindness and benevolence. It is one of violence and judgment. The fact that Vatican city is the city of Gold doesn't really jibe much with their mission. People confuse the Catholic Church with Christian faith all too often. There are many other Christian religions which are more closely aligned with the teachings of the bible.
Well once again you are wrong. I don't get involved in the politics of the church. When you come to the board blaming the church for some mistake, then you need to be explained the policies of the church.
The church does not operate on patients and does not even require the doctors to be catholic. Even in the 50's, some doctors chose the mother over the baby and the church stood strong that the baby is to be saved over the mother.
The Church is not all about business. When they had complete control over their hospitals, many were treated and never charged. The cost of a grammar school education up thru the 70's was around $100.00 per year and many were not even charged. Even now people often get married and buried from the church without being charged.
I have no issue with you bad mouthing or hating the church, but be consistent and put in your will that when you pass away, you wish to get buried from a hall and not a church. I get a kick out the"former" catholics who want to get married and buried from the church and have their kids baptized..
No.. I am not wrong. It's sad that you don't know the history of your own Church.
I am not bad-mouthing the Catholic Church..simply stating the hypocrisy of relying on a point of view to set public policy which itself seems to be in flux. Once again..if you are going to comment on my post..please brush up on your reading comprehension. It's not my job or anyone else's to help you in this area.
Oh..and thank you for concerning yourself with my final arrangements. You can rest assured that not only are they already taken care of..but I will be buried from the Church where I have raised my son and that is a huge part of my life. The Catholic Church is not the only game in town..and many other Christian faiths place a higher value on their members. You are entitled to disagree with my opinion..but like I said..it matters not to me.
Finally..don't assume from my responses to you here that you are going to engage me in the same back and forth games which you used to enjoy with your little friend Chrissy. I am nothing like her..and ignoring you is far more satisfying to me.
