    Self-pope: All of us Roman Catholics will treat you like the Roman Catholic Pope is treated =

    You can wash our >feet.

    Name the time & place = we’ll show up.

    A warning, self-pope = I gots me some real man-feet = big >super-stinky feet with hairy-ugly man-toes.

    The Pope provides the soap & water + the towel to dry our feet. (you will need some >smelling-salts when I take off the shoes & socks from my >man feet.

    Self-pope = your new title can be ‘feet washin’ self-pope’ as it has a nice-sound to it = a life of service instead of snark.

    Please see comment #155. On freerepublic, the ‘Self-Pope’ be a ‘Self-Pope’ whether the ‘Self-Pope’ believes in popes or not.

    This is a question about the guidelines on freerepublic for Religion Moderators:

    1. Is it permissible to ask for another persons’ qualifications to make ‘pope like’ pronouncements about the Christian scriptures?

    2. There many people in the world who are not schooled in a religious institution. They are actually just >self appointed experts.
    Harold Camping is a perfect example of such a person.
    There is a long list of public figures both famous & infamous, who work as Protestant ministers or have pretended to be Protestant ministers, yet have NO NO special education concerning the Bible or religion.

    I bought a $1 Bible at the OneBuck&noMo’ store. It’s a Protestant NIV Bible. Amazing price & I bought it to carry in my work truck as I didn’t want to risk ruining a more expensive Catholic Bible. (It’s always good to be able to ‘study on the word’ when you can.)

    The point of the points 1 & 2 is: For one dollar someone can buy a Bible & pretend to be a ‘Biblical-scholar’ just by quoting scripture. Anyone that has read the Bible can see in anti-Catholic comments that many people posting have >NO NO understanding of the Bible.

    3. Have the Religion Moderators considered allowing Roman Catholics to be able to specifically ask anti-Catholic posters their specific qualifications?
    Looking over numerous anti-Catholic comments it is possible to see that someone can spout complete anti-Catholic nonsense & claim scripture as its basis.

    4. It’s bogus & deceitful for freerepublic to allow such nonsense to occur without allowing Roman Catholics to ask for ‘qualifications’ & to ‘specifically’ point out, what the poster is saying is complete nonsense.

    5. The point being: ‘Someone for $1 can buy a Bible, quote scripture, pose as a Bible-believing Christian, spout complete nonsense & post anti-Catholic comments on freerepublic.
    Roman Catholics are not allowed to actually question the ‘posers that be posing.’

    6. As a Roman Catholic it does not seem to be very equitable to me. After all, Roman Catholics have a >visible Church that has been in existence for >2,000 years, have >actually written the Bible as inspired by the Holy Spirit & has a gazillion (at least) books & articles explaining Catholic teachings.

    7. There seems to be a difference between a ‘poser’ with a $1 Bible. & The visible = 2,000 year old Church with 1.2 BILLION people formally Baptized into it.
    The Roman Catholic is obligated to post authentic teaching. The poser with a $1 Bible can post whatever suits his fancy that day & use scripture inappropriately to write anti-Catholic comments.

    8. Being able to ask questions of anti-Catholic commentators may shine the True Light of Eternal Truth onto the comment section of freerepublic threads.

    This comment for the Religion Moderators is NOT NOT alluding to anyone in this thread. It is a general observation I’m making about people that attack or mock the Roman Catholic Church.

    It seems some people are posting on a >Catholic thread out of sheer >Malice. There is NO NO NO attempt to have a religious dialogue.

    Let me quote a Jesuit Priest from a Catechism, the Priest wrote himself. (The Priest wrote a number of books & articles)
    >In part, “Pastoral Psychologists...have also connected homosexuality with disoriented relations between child and parents, and with imbalance sense of guilt, >exorbitant >malice, and inner depression.”

    The Roman Catholic Church has 1.2 billion people alive today that have been given a ‘Catholic Baptism formally.’ The Catholic Church has a problem with homosexual activity by people in the Church. (It’s in the news.)

    The Roman Catholic Church teaches that God loves >everyone & homosexuals can enter Heaven too. The sin is in homosexual activity NOT NOT with being a homosexual.

    The old chestnut: God loves the sinner and hates the sin.

    At the moment in the USA, homosexuals are attacking the institutions in our society. The Roman Catholic Church as representing Jesus Christ has repeated pointed out that homosexual activity is a sin.

    There are numerous places where the Catholic Church is being >attacked for its Biblical opposition to homosexual activity.
    It’s in the news that homosexuals are continually attacking & mocking the Catholic Church.

    1. Do the Religion Moderators actually look for >malice in any comments that >attack & mock the Catholic Church?

    The ‘thick skin’ policy on open forums seem to apply to ‘The Catholics Only.’ BUT, Exorbitant Malice seems to be in a number of the anti-Catholic postings as there is just mocking & hatred with NO NO intent to dialogue about religious beliefs.

    2. Does freerepublic permit >malice in the comments posted on any of the threads?

    I don’t know with certainty swampfox’s opinion of Jesus Christ. It’s for God to look into swampfox’s heart.

    The comment was >not offered to offend >But to make a needed point.

    Please refer to post #147 & #148. I personally interpreted those two posts as a >gloating comments as though >swampfox considered the Religion Moderator to be choosing his side in a dispute against a >Catholic.

    The comment ‘who’s crying...’ leads me to think >swampfox was the crybaby in this dispute.

    + Rather than a long comment where I use swampfox’s name, it appears I can make short ‘snarky’ comments based on your guidelines & what is permitted to >Catholic haters.

    For instance:
    I could simple address the comment to >swampfox & then in the body of the comment say,
    Self pope of a church that despises Jesus.

    Since swampfox was allowed to post such a comment without admonishment in #130, let me demonstrate it for you.

    Thank you for your reply:

    As I understand your reply. I can refer to members of the swampfox armchair church as that is the only possible way to identify swampfox-armchair-church from the other ‘self-churches’ in the world.

    Example: Many Churches in the world use a modifier to distinguish their church from other churches with the same name = Baptist, free-will Baptist, Southern Baptist.

    Self-pope can be numerous people. & I do not see in freerepublic guidelines where using a person’s name is prohibited = especially when that person is addressed with an honorable title of pope.

    I do believe, freerepublic should encourage clarity of thought as one of its goals. Self-pope in a series of comments does not lead to ‘clarity’ when addressing a particular church such as swampfox’s ‘self-pope armchair church.’

    The Religion Moderator has mentioned to >me specifically about being offended with insults to my Church.
    To set the record straight: I would like the >same latitude to address the pope-name people of other churches.

    As I have said before: There seems to be an animosity towards the Catholic Church & >Catholics which allows >hate mongers to hate >Catholics with impunity.

    I also suspect that >swampfox was the true >crybaby in this discussion about >pope-swampfox’s armchair church. Pope-swampfox was not here to discuss any religion dispute. I personally thought pope-swampfox was here to >hate.

    The standards the Religion Moderator has set in this thread are NOT completely set out in the guidelines. Do the Religion Moderators have a >separate guideline sheet or do the Religion Moderators ‘make things up’ as they go along with specific general items set by the guidelines.

    I ask because there does seem to be a general tolerance for hate mongering against >Catholics with supposedly >prohibited pronouns. BUT, when a Catholic uses the same pronoun against a hate-monger, the moderator steps in to the thread.

    Please compared post #130 with the comment I was admonished about.

    Thank you for your reply.

    As I understand your reply:

    1. I’m allowed to criticize ‘the pope of swampfox’s armchair church.’

    2. I’m allowed to say ‘pope-swampfox’s armchair church teaches false doctrine.’

    3. I’m allowed to say, ‘the pope of swampfox’s armchair church sounds similar to ‘Harold Camping of end of the world fame.’

    + I have >specifically heard Harold Camping on his Radio Programs make specific anti-Catholic statements. & Harold Camping has professed a Predestination view of Salvation with a very limited number of people entering Heaven.
    As you must have read comment #130 by now, pope-swampfox thinks only 6-8 million people are part of the ‘Lord’s Church.’
    That is an amazing >exclusionary number out of 7 Billion people on earth.
    As an observation, that number sounds more like a >cult-religion. Cults are discussed on freerepublic. = Please, don’t consider it a ‘personal statement’ directed to someone. Please consider it simply a descriptive term found on freerepublic.

    4. When people deny membership in >any visible church, the only option left is to refer to them as ‘their name & armchair church.’ ‘Or as pope-name.’

    5. Pope-swampfox was posting as the authority on scripture. That’s why I referred to him as ‘pope of scriptures’ & ‘pope of his armchair church.’

    Religion Moderator, I did NOT NOT see in the guidelines where ‘asking a question over & over was considered
    badgering.’ I thought it was extremely deceitful for pope-swampfox to deny any >visible church & then complain when we asked him (as pope of his own church) about his views.

    I repeatedly ask deceitful pope-swampfox to explain where he learned his view of the scriptures. The fact he was so evasive about radio-preachers led me to ask the question 3 times.

    Also, as a general question:
    ‘Are Religion Moderators members of a church or Religion that is hostile to the Roman Catholic Church.’
    In my opinion based on two admonishments & viewing numerous comments by people that >hate the Catholic Church, there is a definite animosity towards the Catholic Church by at least one if not more Religion Moderators.

    For the record: I was arguing with pope-swampfox as though he was a >pope of sorts. = The pope of his peewee armchair church & pope of the scriptures.

    In the Roman Catholic Church, the title pope is one of honor. I do believe that pope-swampfox should be honored when Catholics refer to him as pope!!!

    Thank you for your time. It’s a difficult job trying to be a Religion Moderator on a Roman Catholic thread where >hate-mongers are allowed to post insults against Catholics & the Catholic Church with impunity.

    Thank you for being a Religion Moderator.

    Why was swampfox allowed to say, “It’s >You, the Catholic Church and the pope that >”dispise” Christ & His word?”
    Yet, I was warned for saying, “you don’t understand it.”

    There seems to be >a great difference in the two comments.
    Your answer does not explain it.

    As to choosing sides:
    Please see swampfox comments #147 & 148.
    Religion Moderator, >I believe you choose sides when Roman Catholics are defending their Church.

    Please review: comment #130 again.

    In fact, I would ask you to go back and re-read all of swampfox’s comments. I see them as >personal attacks.

    Do you the Religion Moderator see swampfox’s comments as expressing the love for Jesus Christ?

    Religion Moderator, if you have read all of swampfox’s comments = you’d realize ALL my comments are about his ‘armchair church.’ Swampfox is presenting himself as the >only member of his church. Swampfox is presenting himself as ‘the pope of his armchair church.’

    I keep asking ‘the pope of swampfox’s armchair church’ to explain his religious beliefs & his faith formation. I’m very curious how swampfox became ‘pope of his armchair church.’ I consider it to be a legitimate question.

    I also, think people that claim ‘Christianity’ as their religion should NOT NOT be deceitful as to their >religious beliefs & their faith formation.

    Religion Moderator: Why can swampfox >attack the Pope of the Catholic Church but we are >admonished for asking questions of the ‘pope of swampfox armchair church?’

    Also, just looking at comments #147 & #148, it appears as the though the ‘pope of swampfox’s armchair church,’ thinks you have sided with him.

    Swampfox, where did you learn all about your scriptures?

    Historically, people have learned scripture in the home & then thoroughly in a Church.

    ____________

    Acts Philip and the Ethiopian 8:26-39 in part, “Then the angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, ‘Get up and head south on the road... Now there was an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of the Candace...Seated in his chariot, he was reading the prophet Isaiah.

    The Spirit said to Philip, ‘Go and join up with that chariot.’ Philip ran up...and said, ‘Do you understand what you are reading?’ He (Ethiopian) replied, ‘How can I unless someone instructs me.’...
    Then Philip opened his mouth and, beginning with this scripture passage, he proclaimed Jesus to him.”

    _________________

    Swampfox, what church did you attend & learn scripture? Every church I have ever heard of, has taught that scripture is handed on from generation to generation. Who taught you, or did you receive your knowledge directly from God?

    ______________

    Acts8 continuing in part, “As they traveled along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, ‘Look there is water. What is to prevent my being baptized?’...and Philip and the eunuch both went down into the water, and he baptized him.”

    ______________

    Swampfox, have you ever been baptized in a church? What was the name of that church? Do you baptize people in your armchair church, or do you just ‘pontificate as the pope of your scriptures?’

    Swampfox, are you truly >saved? Swampfox have you been baptized by water? Swampfox have you been baptized by the Holy Spirit?

    Swampfox, Are you really a Christian & a member of the Church of Jesus Christ?
    Historically, baptism is a required act = for membership in the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.

    Swampfox, do you ever listen to ministers preaching about Jesus Christ on the Radio? I noticed you didn’t answer that question?

    Swampfox, I haven’t spoken to you for a bit.

    From reading your comments, Swampfox101 considers himself to be pope of his own church.

    Swampfox101 attacks the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church because swampfox101 considers himself to the ‘Vicar of Jesus Christ & the pope of the scriptures.’

    That is the message swampfox101 puts forth in all his comments. Basically, you consider your armchair church to be the ‘true church of Jesus Christ.’

    swampfox101 what Protestant churches do you consider faithful to Jesus Christ? Can you please name them?
    Is there someone on television or radio that you consider to be preaching the ‘True Word of Jesus Christ.’ If so, please name that person.

    Your words preach hatred for the Pope & the Catholic Church. The true message of your ‘religion’ comes forth from your heart. It doesn’t matter the words you use. You still persist in being a deceitful man with lying-lips.

    You can say somewhere in a post that you ‘don’t hate’ but the fact that you come on to a Catholic thread & state falsehoods about the Catholic Church, misquote people & inappropriately use scripture. = proof of true hatred found in your heart. Swampfox repent your sins.

    Hatred for other people should not be found in your heart. Swampfox, you come to a Catholic thread to lie + hate & for no other reason. It’s time to throw yourself on the Mercy of God & ask God to have Mercy on your soul.

    There is a reason the Catholic Church has 1.2 billion people officially baptized into it. & There are some folks just sitting in an ‘armchair church’ with delusions of grandeur.

    Repent all sins swampfox & ask Jesus Christ to transform your life.

    Thank you. I take that as a compliment. I’m obligated to interpret other people’s words in the best manner possible by the Catechism. I ain’t no judge. +++I’m glad I’m NOT NOT the Pope. The Pope is responsible for 7 >Billion souls. It’s in the parable of Talents in Chapter 25 of Matthew.

    I’m sorry if I was harsh. + If you are capable of going to a church, you need to go this coming Sunday. There are thousands of them around. Start with a big mega-church, maybe.

    I once went to Southern-Baptist church down south once on a Wednesday night. Amazing! There were 3,000 people in a church; all happy to be there on a Wednesday night. On Sunday the church holds 12,000+ people. They had two morning services, I believe. & There was a Sunday night prayer service to Honor God on the ‘Lord Day.’
    (Vespers)

    Praise God that the Southern Baptist church is a pro-life anti-abortion church.

    They spotted me as a new comer. I asked how they knew it. I was told there a group of men & women in the church given the responsibility for each section & knowing who typically sits in which seat & how often.
    They made me feel welcome & I was encouraged to come back to their church.

    Haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
    and hands that shed innocent blood;
    A heart that plots wicked schemes,
    feet that run swiftly to evil,
    The false witness who utters lies,
    and he who sows discord among brothers.

    It’s not possible to have a discussion with someone who is NOT NOT truthful. Swampfox101, you come to this tread just to lie & hate.

    Thank you for your reply.

    All comments have proven that a very large number of people think they are really an ‘infallible pope’ of the scriptures.

    There are literally thousands of different churches claiming God’s word is true. Each with a different interpretation of God’s true word.

    Within those thousands of different churches literally >millions of people >argue about the true meaning of scripture.

    The point of my question (are you infallible?) is to have you understand that you seem to be claiming to be ‘pope of the scriptures.’

    To cite a passage in the Bible such as: “Jesus is Lord” is an actual Truth. However, to carry it further and claim that Jesus did not establish a Church with authority here on earth is to use a truth to create a falsehood.

    Did God a build a Church on earth for people? Did God place people in charge of His Church? Did God put one person in charge of the Church to speak with infallible authority?

    I say: Yes! & that person is the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church.
    One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church.

    Jesus Christ did not walk the earth to sow confusion. Jesus Christ build one authentic Church & the Church would have a singular voice through both time & geography.

    You quote numerous Biblical verses: But at the end, everything you say can be summed-up by saying, ‘you seem to think you’re pope-of-the-scriptures.’

    I believe that the true understanding of the scriptures is conveyed by the Roman Catholic Church.

    You say you be a Bible-based Christian. = Please read once again the events about Noah’s ark. You may notice that there was only one ark. There were not numerous little boats bobbing about in different directions.

    Remember: It’s One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church.

    The FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH is important to ALL Christians.

    + I recommend you go to the Vatican website and read The Catholic Catechism paragraph 766,
    “The Church is born primarily of Christ’s total self-giving for our salvation, anticipated in the institution of the Eucharist and fulfilled on the Cross.
    “The origin and growth of the Church are symbolized by the blood and water which flowed from the open side of the crucified Jesus” “For it was from the side of Christ as he slept the sleep of death upon the Cross that there came forth the ‘wondrous sacrament of the whole Church.’”
    As Eve was formed from the sleeping Adam’s side, so the Church was >born from the pierced heart of Christ hanging dead on the Cross.

    Beautiful, absolutely.

    Numerous Christians both Catholics & Protestants think the Church was ‘created’ on Pentecost Sunday. When actually, The Church was born from the Heart of Jesus Christ on the Cross.

    It’s an arithmetic problem & you have to factor in the cost of the generator. Utilities have information about making such calculations for all appliances.

    I just looked it up: Minnesota generators 59% of its electricity with coal. If Obama is re-elected, I’d make sure I had some sort of >wood burning stove for heat.

    It’s possible to live through hot weather in Minnesota without air conditioning. But it’s impossible to make through a cold Minnesota winter without heat, unless you hibernate like a bear.

    Modern heaters using natural-gas ALSO require electricity to operate. Obama is working to destroy energy production in the USA. Plan for the worse.

    There are products for a ‘cool roof’ or solar heat reflective paint. Do your >research; solar-reflective-paint on your mobile home can act like a big shade tree & help keep your mobile home cool.

    (There are bogus products being sold now that do NOT work quite the way you would want them to work. For example: some folks put an ‘insulating paint’ on their roof when they have an open attic. The roof keeps off the rain. To put ‘insulating paint on such a roof would be like putting ‘insulating paint’ on an umbrella & expecting it to help keep you warm. Such paint if it reflects heat will help in that regards but not with insulating.)

    The radiant heat from the sun would be reflected off the mobile home by a solar reflective paint. It’s sort of like standing under a shade tree on a 100 degree day. It’s still very hot under the tree but it’s not as bad as standing in direct sunlight. (In the winter the ‘warm sun heat’ is also reflected but usually there is NOT that much heating done by the sun in wintertime Minnesota.)

    Also, use water to keep cool if there is a power outage. Just putting your feet in a tub of water for 1/2 hour will cool down your entire body.
    Down south, folks go & ‘beat their feet on the Mississippi River mud’ to keep cool on a hot humid day. At least in the old-songs.

    Look up ‘solar porches’ they can help create a warm spot in the winter. I actually lived in an old ‘shack’ that had a homemade solar porch; it worked just fine. But I live where there be cactus, sticker bushes & tumble-weeds that do be tumbling.

    We are ALL children of the Church. We should learn from the teachings of the Church for a full understanding of our Catholic obligations.

    Conclusion: We should all work to avoid taxes whenever legally possible. We need to follow in the footsteps of Holy Mother our Church.
    Jesus Christ when he set up the Nation of Israel had a 10% flat tax. It was a Theocracy = God centered government. As far as I know, no one has a better idea than Jesus Christ. 10% flat tax & no more; it’s time to starve the beast of government.

    Immigration: The Vatican has a wall all the way around it with guarded gates. Does the Vatican allow people to enter the Vatican as illegal immigrants & receive citizenship rights?

    When families are formed in the USA with illegal immigrants & USA citizens, we as good Catholics should NOT advocate breaking apart families. BUT also, we as good Catholics should not advocate a program that encourages families to break apart by allowing illegal immigrants to enter the USA & leave their families behind.

    Immigration: as a policy has destroyed the unions & lowered the ‘living’ wage of workers in the USA. Supply & Demand is a basic economic concept. There are so many unemployed people in the USA that the number of potential employees exceeds the number of jobs.
    Immigration: The USA Ruling-Class is bringing skilled workers here to the USA & depriving their home countries of human resources. An example: All the medical workers that come to the USA. The other countries in the world do NOT have the medical care of citizens here in the USA. There are many other examples.
