Something to ponder and discuss with family and friends.
I would have thought "How the Uniforms Look on Adult Babes" would have been SOMEWHERE on the list...
Vatican II NUNS.
Now young Catholic boys want
to come to classes!
Harry Crocker and Father C. John McCloskey did a series on EWTN:
Ping! This piece is even worse than the last one you posted. I suspect that non Latin Rite Christians could have a grand time jumping on this one! NYer, is there some purpose to this triumphalistic revsionism or is it just posted to get the Orthodox here angry?
It proves that Jesus is with the Catholic Church until the end of time.
" 'Art is native to Catholicism, since reverence for the body and for nature is native to it.' The Puritan influence is foreign to Catholicism just as the idea that smashing altars, defacing Madonnas, and breaking stained glass as a religious act is foreign, and indeed heretical, to Catholics. The Catholic Church leaves such Talibanism to the Protestants and iconoclastic heresies. The Catholic Church, instead, offers a celebration of beauty; and beauty, in our world of pierced faces, body tattoos, gangsta rap, and concrete tower blocks, is something we could use much more of."
Tell that to the modernists destroying (renovating) our great old churches. They are completing the work started by Henry VIII.
I'd much rather see an article entitled,
"Whats So Great About Jesus Christ."
To me, articles like this smack of worship-of-the-church rather than worship of God.
ping to self for future reading
Thank you for this article...I am not a Catholic, actually I belong to no organized religion, tho I was raised as a Methodist, many, many years ago...
But I am searching many different religions, and reading my Bible, and trying to see if there is out there, a particular religion which in my heart, rings out loud and clear that it might just be the religion which holds the truth...its a long and often daunting task, but a task well worthwhile...
So altho I rarely ever post anything on a religious thread, but prefer to remain a lurker, still I appreciate any well written articles, and appreciate those posters who post well thought out posts, supplied with plenty of Biblical references, and historical facts...
I have no use for those who just wish to name call and demean those of a religion other than their own...
For me, good articles, ,good posts, will help me in my journey...Bashing just turns me off...
Anyway, thanks for this article, and for your informative posts..
I agree about the inquisitions. Overblown by the secular mandarins and in need of revision.
But really now you must do something about Roman Catholic liberation theology...you know the kind that embraces Marxism? Like the Maryknolls and Paulists and the lunatic Roy Bourgeois who protests anything the US military does but ignores the Muslims and Marxists.
While you are at it - get rid of the homos. Just expel them. Why is that so hard to do? It will only get harder as time goes on.
Given Texas' track record, that's not a very good comparison. ;o)
Good article deserves a BTTT
Wonderful post to ponder and expand on!
