  • When Blacks have identity it is called pride.
    When Indians have identity it is called culture.
    When Jews have identity it is called history.
    When Whites have identity it is called racism.

    Surely all of us as Christians should be ashamed of our sins and ask forgiveness of God and others?

    St Paul said that we should pray perpetually and isnt a big part of prayer seeking forgiveness?

    I can perfectly understand why someone would have admiration for Bishop Williamson just not for certain of his opinions (though I guess you could admire his courage in publically expressing them).

  •   Other examples of double standards:

    Democracy means the majority must rule and decide.
    The majority of people are male. (105 males to 100 females)
    Then why are they against patriarchy?
    .............................................................
    Eco fans say that man has no right to rule over animals.
    That man is equal to and one of the animals.
    lions, tigers and eagles eat/kill other spieces.
    So why can't human beings eat/kill ducks?
    .............................................................
    If man is not superior to a bird, why should he ask permission before entering a place, when a raven needs not to do so?
    .............................................................
    Dante and many others believe that adultery is the least of sins as it is caused by love.
    Some people apostate because they are in love with a heretic.
    Some people commit murder to please their sweet hearts.
    Some others steal to buy a precious gift for a loved one.
    Some lie and commit perjury for the sake of love.
    Others commit suicide for love.
      It follows that are above are little, petty and cute sins if we are to reason like Dante.

  • Democracy=mob rule

    not a good idea.

    Republic, somewhat better, still not always great (see USA)

    Monarcy=could be good or bad, depending on monarch and extent of powers...

    ultimately, people=fallen nature, transcends to every day living and hence, our mess we are in.

    God=perfection, no contradictions,all powerful, all just and all merciful...

    Well he still put adulterers in hell... Where did he say it was caused by love?  I think he implies it is caused by weakness of the flesh, and that weakness is not as bad as aggressive evil.

    But yes, he puts those damned for lust in the Second Circle of Hell, a relatively light punishment.  Is lust really better than gluttony?  Come on.  Lust and adultery destroy homes, break hearts, how can it be worse to be gluttonous or angry?  If I had written the Inferno, Lust would have been the Fourth Circle, right above Greed, since greed is more destructive than lust ultimately. But then in my Inferno heresy would have been the ninth circle, not the sixth, if by heresy we mean sins against the First Commandment.  

    Dante appears to have been more political than spiritual in nature.  For him the worst sins are treachery and fraud -- political sins.  He is easygoing about lust because, after all, this is a man who openly loved one woman, Beatrice, while married to another.  Not very sensitive to his wife's feelings, I'd say.


    As I was a new convert when posting here, my posts are often full of error, even unwitting heresy and rash judgment, all of which I renounce, and all my writings are best avoided -- MDLS

  • It is because today we have a mass media culture
    in which the vast majority thinking are mind
    controlled what ever comes through the TV, the
    Movies,radio, newspapers, and publications, and even
    the internet. The control is so strong that unless
    you conformed, it would affect your job, your
    reputation, and your family.
    We are being lied to in such as mass scale that it
    has now become the truth, just to survive.
    A small group of men that are wealthy, that are
    mostly attached to a religion that practices the
    worse types of racism, and get away with it in
    plain sight. Such as the unjust treatment of the
    Gazans, and the Palestinians, and the majority of
    Christians either do not care, or applaud such
    actions.
    The problem today, independent thinking people
    hardly exists because of the imposition of
    political correctness which is pure Marxism.

  • If God didn't want us to be different races, He wouldn't have created the races in the first place!

    And God cannot change His mind. Trying to melt all peoples and races into one big mess clearly isn't God's will.

    Identity is one of God's most basic gifts to us, which all men have a natural right to.

    There are 4 kinds of identity: Nationality, race, gender, and religion.

    I'm happy to be a man, proud to be Roman Catholic, happy to be of Irish/German descent, and I think I'll be living in America for better or worse. (I'm not pleased with what my country is doing, but I don't see myself wanting to live anywhere else. The whole world is messed up right now)

    Actually, I've more or less transferred that natural "love of country" to love of Texas. I guess I consider myself a citizen of the Republic of Texas :cowboy: The South will rise again!
