Unless you’re a Kennedy looking for an annulment.
Pretty tame, I would imagine. All I'm going to do is remove the rust from my sword and polish it up a little. Maybe give it a finer edge.
I would suspect that the church left this in limbo for 700 years...because of fear of the Templars. I don’t think this is a crowd that you can sit at ease with if you have done so much to hurt them. The Templars...really never went away and are active throughout the globe today...quietly. I suspect that the pope...from Germany...has seen some of their work in a positive light...and decided enough was enough. It is a sign of admitting that the church was wrong in some things it did.
The Gnurrs come from the voodvork out!
But you need one of Papa Schimmelhorn’s Gnurrpipes to summon them....

Shame academia won’t exonerate them anyhow
Can’t exonerate any white Christians from that era who killed brownish Muslims....(and others ...yes yes I know before the chorus chimes in)
actually ....just my opinion but the Constitution makes no mention of Jefferson’s famous “wall” but rather bans the Establishment of a State Religion.
A concept Europe has always known all too well and what happened to the Templars more addresses that than the Wall of Separation which is a platitude....or is it canard?
I prefer the way we were for 160 years before Everson when the Wall concept was unheard of.
We still imprison bad clergy and corrupt ministers in our own way, it’s just harder to convict by jury than by King’s edict.
Btw....the King of France could not have persecuted the Templars without the Vatican’s approval...no way....revisionist thought to the contrary is wishful thinking.
Oh come on! It's not like this is the ONLY falsehood they've allowed to exist for centuries....
Flame away :-)
Have patience for me, brother. I plan to enter the Order after my time in the East.

That's what they always do. It is only recently that they acknowledged that Galelelio was correct, the earth does indeed orbit around the sun and not the other way around. Self important men (?) in dresses.
interesting that if you know your bible, you didn’t have to wait for Galelelio to know a bit about the nature of the planets, and what the earth rests on - keep in mind that other religions have the earth resting on the back of great turtles, or other such nonsense.
It clearly states in the bible that the earth is round (not flat), and hangs in space on nothing. This is from the old testament, written > 1500 years before Christ.
It does NOT say however, if the earth or sun revolve around each other.
This is why (when speaking from the bible), it is best to NOT extend beliefs beyond what the text actually SAYS.
There’s a lot of information in the bible that could not have been produced by human means - this is one example, there are others.
I keep striking up the theme song to the TV series, “The Saint” and expect Simon Templar to make his appearance.
most probably a pretty accurate statement.
Here! LOL. I have about six demolays crashed at my house, as I write this. They are home from college.
One of them is the state master counselor.
why would someone claim vindication yet deny membership???
make no sense to me...
