I teach ninth g English and I can tell BS from a mile away

Based on the prevalent grammatical errors in your posts, I'd say you're in the wrong line of work.

No. I just don’t take the time on the anticatholic forum to proofread my arguments. Better things to do

I’ sure my errors prevail in typos and not grammar

I am in the right line of work.

I can show otherwise distracted and argumentive people (kids) how to follow classic characters’ behaviors from one step to the next and following logical steps

From Iago to Tom Sawyer to Penelope and to Ahab

And I can smell intent and effort in an argument, an essay and a test answer to a personal schooze to the tee

And your arguments are not up to the caliber of the high schoolers I serve

They are boring and transparent

You may deduct twenty-five points from your answer, for the use of a dangling participle/misplaced modifier. And don't let your students know that you find them boring and transparent.

Do you believe the Pope serves Satan and not God?

Too late for the question - you've already asserted it as the truth, and I'm now calling you on it. I expect you to take responsibility for avoiding any appearance of malice, gossip or slander by backing your statement up, by providing the quote and where/when that I've said it.

Oh, you certainly misread my post.

I do not ever find my students boring. And they know when I see through their efforts

No. I was comparing you to them finding you but not them boring

I haven't misread your posts. I just pointed out one of many grammatical errors found therein, errors that are inexcusable under better English teachers.

You might want to go to your argument and see what you can do about directing your anticatholicism in a more honest way

A priest, or other clergy member might help you vent more effectively or help you discover what the problem might be which brings you on a course to dishonestly disparage the Pope

John 8:37 I know that you are the children of Abraham: but you seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
John 8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do the things that you have seen with your father.

There's no mistaking what the WORD of God says in the above verses nor is there any mistaking what the WORD of God says in the following verse.

John 19:15 But they cried out: Away with him; away with him; crucify him. Pilate saith to them: Shall I crucify your king? The chief priests answered: We have no king but Caesar.

And their descendants have been helping to install one tyrannical Caesar after another ever since.

Which is why it's hard to decide whether to laugh or to cry when you read their anti-Christ and anti-Christian jokes.

Great article, and Archbold was actually right. People do twist the Pope’s words. All the quotes are from Pope Benedict - and not a single one is “liberal.”

These are simply the teachings of the Catholic Church, which holds out salvation to everyone and hates the sin but loves the sinner.

As for capitalism, I don’t think there’s a single person here who would support crony capitalism (state capitalism) or a situation where factory owners could do things like lock the fire exits and let their employees die because it might have cost them a few extra bucks to have the fire exits open. Pope Francis has frequently made the point that economic systems must be regulated from within, that is, by virtuous people.

Anyone who thinks attacking predatory capitalism and crony capitalism is the same as attacking all Capitalism doesn't understand that humans can and will turn anything they touch into something evil unless there's a Christian counterweight to man's nature.

Selling Kiddie Porn and selling Bibles are the same as far as Capitalism is concerned.

The real problem is that individual Christians have delegated the role of being a counterweight to man's intrinsic evil to government and government itself, naturally, has been twisted to evil ends. Christians need to stand up for Christ and Christian morality in everything they do including how they earn their living and spend their earnings instead of continuing to go along to get along.

“Funny how no one’s taken issue with the author’s bait-and-switch assertion that BXVI was a liberal”

Faulty assessment. The purpose is to show that the obviously orthodox/conservative Benedict, stated things that when taken out of context, could lead to the faulty assessment that he is liberal.

Of course the implication is that this is what is going on with Frances.

Thanks for posting! Glad to see you lurking over at the Register. I saw this one this morning and got a kick out of it. The amazing thing to me is how many dim bulbs read Archbold’s column. Check out some of the comments.

"It is true that the Muslim world is not totally mistaken when it reproaches the West of Christian tradition of moral decadence and the manipulation of human life."

"It is deplorable that homosexual persons have been and are the object of violent malice in speech or in action. Such treatment deserves condemnation from the church's pastors wherever it occurs.
"

Agree completely. Whichever pope and whoever in general said that is truly a Christian man from whom the world should learn.

Hilarious find by the Archibolds.

Good job as always, Murphy.

You're missing the point, FRiend. Not every pope in the history of the Church has been a sincere Catholic, but Benedict and Francis are. And those quotes you're reading, they reflect Catholic thought and teaching. Liberal/Conservative labels need not apply.

Alex, with respect, we have to abide by the rules of this forum.

But everybody, from Protestant and Catholic perspectives, knows the deal.

LOL. People can do what they will. But, it’s transparent when it is done on a continuous loop.
