But it is my understanding that these Catholic colleges are not run by the Church and therefore not owned by the Church.
Now I am very confused. What am I missing?
at this Jebbie school we had Mel Gibson as commencement speaker last year...
Yes, you are correct, this was in way upstate NY, perhaps Buffalo or Syracuse? V's wife.
Marist is not way upstate. It's pretty close to the city actually.
No I refer to the church in upstate NY where Hillary was allowed to talk and parishoners saying the rosary were given the boot... V's wife.
I have a HUGE problem with this line of reasoning. I believe murderers should be executed as punishment for their heinous crimes, not because society is unable to adequetely incarcerate them. Capital punishment is either right or wrong. The Catholic church seems to say society can only execute people when it can't contain them. Would this logic then allow pro-abortionists to say babies can be aborted when thier mother's can't afford the children? Possibly.
I am fairly certain there have been dungeons since the time of Christ. Since the Catholic Church has approved of the death penalty for 2,000 years, I think JP II was simply wrong when he attempted to "evolve" the church teaching on this subject.
Indeed, in the old days, there were no juries, no DNA testing, and no appeals. The death penalty today is much more just.
Sounds like Catholics are starting to take back their Church. Growing some courage.
He's slated for retirement soon enough.
Was O'Connor really the stand-up gut he get credit for being? Sometimes I wonder if he couldn't have done more.
ELS: do you have any theory about Myers's chances to swim the Hudson?
I didn't follow events closely while he was Arch. of NY, but I do remember hearing about his statements. At least he did speak up for life, truth, etc. I have only been aware of Egan speaking up once early in his tenure as Arch. of NY and that was in opposition to some odious legislation in Albany.
Do you have any theory about Myers's chances to swim the Hudson?
I really don't have enough information to formulate a theory. I think Myers has had input into the recent episcopal appointments in NJ. I have heard that he really didn't want to be in Newark. IMHO, I think he would be an improvement over Egan.
Maybe the Holy Ghost will raise up a humble, holy and little known man to the See of New York.
I can hardly wait to read your comments to my husband. Absolutely priceless!
Supporter of our terrorist enemy HO CHI MINH during the Vietnam War against Freedom's survival in South Vietnam
Supporter of our terrorist enemies in a new time of war with our own Freedom now directly at stake here at home
***Don't forget Hillary Rodham Clinton rode with the anarchist/domestic terrorist Black Panthers' militancy.
Lest we forget: Nixon finalized (backed-out as honourably as possible)the Viet Nam war which started during Eisenhower's presidential administration, continued, in fact, excellerated throughout Dem. JFK's and Dem. Johnson's presidential administrations. I've listened to TOO MANY Democrats falsely attribute the Viet Nam war to Richard Nixon.
I understand from my sister that Cardinal Egan wants to remain in New York "in power" until he is 78. So I've been told to expect a "makeover" for Egan to make him look like Pope Benedict's best ally. There's more, but that's enough for now really. God bless.
It was Buffalo, wasn't it? That's what rings a bell.
Yeah, I think:Buffalo. V's wife.
I'm afraid I'm not following you here. The Church is talking about sparing lives. The abortionists are talking about destroying lives. Those are opposites. Not all killing is murder. But the deliberate killing of innocent persons is always murder. That's why it cannot be justified under any circumstances: Killing 30 babies every Saturday at Women's Surgi-center or killing 100,000 civilians in Nagasaki or killing sexual rival with a baseball bat.
You seem to be just another zealot who ignores their church's logical contradictions. No need to respond further.
No really, I didn't understand your analogy. Are you saying there is no moral distinction whatever between a mother killing the baby in her womb, and political authorities killing a convicted felon? Or what?
All I need is further explanation here, which will be graciously received.
How old is he now? I thought ordinaries had to submit their resignation upon their 75th birthday. The major difference between Eddie and our Holy Father - for Eddie it's all about what he wants and for His Holiness it's all about what He wants.
So I've been told to expect a "makeover" for Egan to make him look like Pope Benedict's best ally.
Ugh. It seems to me that Cardinal George is Benedict XVI's best ally among the US Cardinals and Archbishop Burke his best ally among the US bishops.
>>>mustering up charity here<<<..... I can't stand his voice.
Just because they have to submit their resignation doesn't mean it has to be accepted. Look at Cardinal O'Connor's age and think of competition...
Sadly, this sort of disease is common in some dioceses, 'old-fashioned' orthodox Catholics dissed and tossed out in favor of CINO's.
She is larger than all of it. Ask her.
Well, actually we don't ask her, we don't speak directly to her highness, we go through her people. And if our query is worthy, we are deigned a reponse. ;-)
