    Way too many of us believe in a magic book negated by science and peppered with all manner of misanthropic myths.

    Meanwhile, our left wing comrades the "indigenous pipples" are one with the universe and can change themselves into wolves.

    So the Catholic Church has gone from the "reactionary" teaching that the earth is the center of the universe to the "progressive" one that it is no such thing . . . but that we should all worship it.

    What a wacky religion!

    Right after I left the Catholic Church all those years ago, being a student in a large metropolitan area, I took advantage of the opportunity to instead begin attending the sunday liturgies of a local Armenian Apostolic Church. All very exotic. And ethnic. And left wing.

    Personally, my opinion since that time has been that if religious truth were to be determined by aesthetics alone, the Armenian Church would be the "one true religion." Unfortunately aside from the problems other churches have with their theology they are also primarily identitarian and get their membership almost exclusively by their members having children.

    I for one would have been enchanted had someone actually expressed the desire for me to join their ancient church. But you know, it's a church for Armenians; the Nation is the Church and the Church is the Nation. This is basically what all the ancient churches have become (the Catholic Church just has more ethnic groups).

    That’s my point and it’s the bishops point at least one of tgem

    Catholics don’t prostelytize at least not according to church teachings

    People think the Catholic Church has a lot of arbitrary rules and that they force them and also judgement onto others

    They don’t. Complicated in lieeu of or juxtaposed to other Christian denominations

    Very misunderstood

    I myself am one of those benighted ignoramuses who "misunderstand" how any church that claims to be the "one true original church that traces itself all the way back to the apostles" can not be proselytary. The fact that Catholicism and Orthodoxy, despite their respectable pedigrees, don't even attempt to make converts shows how much the "unchangeable" religion has changed over the centuries. It's also one reason why I left the Catholic Church and chrstianity altogether.

    Thank-you for stating what many Catholics on this forum won’t admit.

    Hey, no problem.

    I remember back when I converted to the Catholic Church I had to make all the moves because "only hateful Fundamentalist Protestants would ever try to convert someone." Or something like that. My experience was similar to what I understand joining the Masonic lodge is like (I've never done that, but I've heard all the burden is on the "seeker").

    It's really very simple. Fundamentalist Protestants interpret the Bible literally; therefore interpreting the Bible literally is "Protestant" and no self-respecting Catholic or Orthodox may ever do that. Similarly, Fundamentalist Protestants are fanatically and enthusiastically missionary. Therefore missionary zeal is "Protestant" and no Catholic or Orthodox has any business ever doing such a thing.

    Then there's the fact that over the centuries the ancient churches have become insular and ethnic. I used to cynically observe that the only reason the Catholic Church is still going is that Irish people reproduce. Catholics and Orthodox spend their time extolling their ancient Irish/Italian/Spanish/French/Austrian/Polish/Russian/Bulgarian/Serbian/Ukrainian/Greek/Armenian/Ethiopian/Vietnamese/Philippine heritage and protecting the various Chosen Peoples from the big, bad, stupid, fundamentalist yokels who don't understand that nobody thinks like that any more.

    I am well aware of how annoying proselytizing can be. Where I'm from everyone is proselytized from time to time, but everyone still gets along. I wonder why it never ever enters the head of anyone in the ancient churches that to actually be pursued by such an ancient religion might actually be . . . well . . . flattering? Every little denomination that's just over a hundred years old proselytizes like there's no tomorrow but the ancient and "authentic" churches that claim to go "all the way back" just keep their mouths shut and tell the residents of the various ethnic ghettos how superior they are to all those "hateful rednecks."

    "Missionary activity" is as un-Catholic and un-Orthodox as are Biblical literalism and apocalypticism.

    Not much of a fight fan myself (I prefer that good ol' pre-Internet kayfabe rasslin'!), but second only to baseball, boxing probably has the longest and most quasi-mythological history and lore.

    About the time I was born boxing was an absolute craze in the United States. I have read that boxing saturated television much as football does today and that every fighter of ever weight class had dedicated fans who couldn't wait to watch them on "Friday Night Fights."

    The sport is very brutal and I'm not even sure it should be legal (but I'm not "raising awareness" or anything, boxing fans, so don't get mad!). But when you consider names like John L. Sullivan, Jack "Nonpareil" Dempsey, Mysterious Billy Smith, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, and the TV stars of the 50s (Marciano, Robinson, etc.), you have to give the fight game its props.

  • The Vatican's dangerous embrace of climate-change theory

    04/30/2015 1:20:23 PM PDT · 8 of 11
    Zionist Conspirator to NYer
    So let me return to my initial question. If the Catholic Church endorses the climate-change hypothesis, and later developments prove that hypothesis wrong, what will be the net result? The result, I fear, will be skepticism: not about climate issues, but about the authority of the Catholic Church. Critics of Catholicism will say that the Vatican had learned nothing from the Galileo affair, and had again exerted its moral authority improperly in a scientific debate.

    Of course that unhappy outcome would occur only if the climate-change hypothesis is proven wrong. If the hypothesis is confirmed, then the Vatican’s support will seem justified. But since the debate is unsettled, is it prudent for the Vatican to gamble on the outcome?

    Too late now. The Popes have long since accepted and taught evolution (and the idea that Genesis is mythology). And I bet you agree with them, Mr. Lawler.

    Yeah, there's apparently another neo-Nazi move to subvert FR again. Earlier someone actually posted an article from a racialist, anti-Jewish web site--and written by an avowed neo-pagan.

    Looks like there's going to be a spate of these things for a while. Even when they admit that the Left is anti-Israel they never stop. The status of Jews as the objectively chosen people of an objectively existing One True G-d sets these "nationalists" wetting their panties like nothing else. They can't get their "planet of peoples" where every ethnic group has its own "gxd," "holy land," and national religious truth. Poor little babies.

    Zionist Conspirator to B4Ranch; All
    Most people who oppose "neo-conservatism" simply want to throw Israel to the wolves. All the verbiage about laissez-faire and "American empire" is just window dressing.

    They also believe that morals come not from an Objectively True G-d but from "culture" and that culture is created by genes and chromosomes. In other words, it's just another G-dless, atheistic worldview that pays lip service to a local, ethnic "gxd."

    And isn't it curious how these "palaeos" always seem to omit how many of their own heroes started out on the Left? In fact the "old right" of the 30s was nothing but the "old left" of the 20s. Many WWII-era isolationists were simply 20's radicals who stayed true to their original ideals rather than constantly change the "party line." Burton K. Wheeler, "right winger" of the New Deal era, had been a notorious pro-red radical the previous decade. Oswald Garrison Villard is another example of the same phenomenon.

    Remember that the next time some gene-worshiper starts ranting about how "neocons" used to be socialists.

    Tragically the Mayor of Baltimore (a trained lawyer) thinks that 'free speech' gives the violent mob of wild protesters demonstrating over Freddie Gray's death by the police the freedom to be as wild and savage as they want to be and to abuse the police and dare them to retaliate.

    Yet she doesn't think that "free speech" protects the right of citizens to express disagreement with the President.

    But then, I guess he's just on "the right side of history" . . . isn't he?

    The link in this thread was posted days ago, long before the thread I created today was pulled.

    I found the article useful. I was introduced to Richard Spencer by Lawrence Auster, who was himself Jewish. Auster was uncompromising in refusing to deal with anti semites. I don’t believe he would have allowed Richard Spencer to interview him if Auster considered him one.

    The site has articles on many topics, including conservative Catholic and Orthodox Christian revival.

    First of all, thank you for answering me, and I apologize if I have misjudged you.

    However, the fact remains that it is forbidden by the rules of Free Republic to link to anti-Jewish web sites. A web site that hosts anti-Jewish articles is in practice an anti-Jewish web site.

    I knew nothing about Richard Spencer until I looked him up. Lawrence Auster converted to chrstianity, and a Jew who converts to chrstianity is not a good moderator of who is or isn't an anti-Semite.

    From the article on him at Wikipedia (granted, a very biased source), I see the following quote:

    "I have always called myself a racialist, which to me means two things. First, as a general proposition, I think that race matters in all kinds of ways. Second, I care about the white race. It is the source of and is inseparable from everything we are, everything we have, and everything our civilization has achieved."

    He was clearly "religious" only in the most cultural/utilitarian way, since he openly states here that our values and our morality come from our race, and not from G-d A-mighty. In fact, the original article itself says this much, blaming "white guilt" on chrstianity and making race (a biological concept involving genes an chromosomes) and not an objective G-d Who exists outside everything else as the source and decisor of morals and values.

    Even without the racial element, "civilizationism" itself is a heretical, non-Theistic philosophy that views all religions and all morals as the creations of various "civilizations." Naturally it implies that G-d Himself is (G-d forbid!) just one example.

    All these "perennial tradition" organizations are anti-G-d and anti-Bible. "Orthodox" Catholic/Orthodox writings there mean very little. Do they ever post anything by pro-Israel Fundamentalist Protestants? I doubt it.

    These people are bad news. In rejecting G-d and the Jewish People they choose the side of evil no differently than the leftist fanatics do.

    This isn't my site, but I sincerely advise not posting anything from such sites here in the future. That is for others to decide, however.

    Thank you again.

    How would MLK feel about the police throwing an injured suspect in a police wagon and that suspect going into a coma while in the police wagon the dying a week later?

    This is also a legitimate issue. No one wants to be tortured, persecuted, or terrorized by the police, whether they be federal, state, or local. And this definitely needs to be looked into.

    Unfortunately, this issue has been forgotten and left in the background because this inexcusable behavior has been used by the Left to advance its own agenda. And that agenda--which includes a nationalized Gestapo-style police force and concentrating on punishing "couterrevolutionaries" and letting "revolutionaries" perform "their historic mission"--is not the answer to actual police brutality.

    It is sad the direction they’ve taken.

    They allowed themselves to be used by liberals. We can blame liberals for their failed families. We can blame liberals for their failed economic success. We can blame liberals for so many of them being in prison. But the truth of the matter is that it’s their own fault. They took the easy road. They didn’t stand up for what was right. They didn’t stand up for what was moral.

    There is no way I am willing to have the government tell me how to run my family. They allowed it to happen. They have to take responsibility.

    This is also true. The organized Black community has knowingly allied themselves with atheists, evolutionists, homosexuals, and rationalists who insist the Bible is mythology. They cannot possibly be so ignorant that they don't know this is whom they've chosen to ally themselves with.

    I doubt that very seriously.

    Dr. Alveda King is socially conservative and there are other members of the extended King family who are also. But they continue to cover for the fraudulent liberal Protestant who didn't actually believe in G-d or the Bible but instead used religion and what he regarded as "mythology" for a purely secular, enlightenment ethic.

    Shame on them. They are doing no one--including Blacks--any good by allowing them to continue to believe that King was a typical "born-again" "holy ghost-filled" "saved" Baptist. Of course, there's always the possibility that most Blacks recognize this and just agree with him! That's sure the way they politic, isn't it?

    You know, anyone can inadvertently post a link to an anti-Jewish web site (since some contain articles with no objectionable content). The article you are linking to is one you posted here and was pulled by the mods because the web site is anti-Jewish, anti-chrstian, neo-pagan, and racialist. Now that the thread has been pulled you link back to the original anti-Jewish neo-pagan site. Obviously this is not a mistake on your part.

    Your profile page says you've been here since 1998. While there were some great FReepers around back then (you've been here longer than I), there were also all sorts of nasty Jew-haters and national socialists slithering around. Are you one of their number?

    There are any number of articles exposing not only he Communist/Marxist connections of contemporary Black rioters but the sad fact that almost the entire Black American community has sold out completely and allied itself with absolute evil (and btw, being evil is far more serious than being biologically "inferior"). Yet you chose to post and now to link to a site whose solution is not G-d A-mighty and His Laws but biological racialism and a rejection of the Biblical G-d to such an extent that it favors neo-paganism over chrstianity. Just what are you trying to accomplish here?

    I advise some serious soul-searching--not about "racism" or "bigotry" or "prejudice" or any of that lefty multi-culti nonsense but about how loyal you are to the G-d Who created you.

    You have got to be kidding, how is a city dwelling liberal going to survive in a rural setting. No dump services, no abortion clinic on ever corner, no big city services, no bus service, no, they are not going to move here.

    That's yet another difference between the First World Left and the Third World Left. The former is made up of urban intellectuals who hate and despise the people who live in the countryside (while claiming to love the countryside itself). The latter are made up of people who idealize the rural peasantry. Mao Tse-tung forced urbanites to go into the country and live with the "mouth breathing rubes" and do farm work alongside them (he even put the "mouth breathers" in control). And everyone knows what Pol Pot did.

    Can you imagine our urban academic leftist elite having to go out and work under some Nebraska farmer helping to get in the corn crop? It's ridiculous. Mao defined the revolution as one by the countryside against the evil cities that exploited it. Our leftists believe the cities are "exploited" by the countryside!

    Yet our "cultural Marxists" still insist that they are the "comrades" of the more traditional (and socially conservative) Marxists of the Third World. They profess their admiration for Mao, Stalin, Castro, Chavez, Allende, Ortega, Ho Chi Minh, Kim Il Sung, and Enver Hoxha. None of these regimes had "marriage equality"--not ONE. Nor do our "cultural Marxists" demand it of them. But when it comes to us, the rural peasantry are the counterrevolutionary villains who must be destroyed and the cutting edge of "world revolution" are wealthy white homosexuals!

    Is anybody else seeing how crazy all this is???

    You folks certainly mean well and I commend you for shaking things up and getting Americans to stop and think objectively about religion. But no one from a Fundamentalist Protestant background is ever going to consider Eastern Orthodoxy or any other ancient "authentic" church so long as they are hostile or indifferent to the facticity of the Written Word of G-d which very much includes that "embarrassing" book of Genesis. You may prove your case on every other issue in existence, but so long as the "authentic" and "traditional" understanding is no different from the radical Protestant documentary hypothesis you are all whistling Ol' Dan Tucker to a cyclone.

    The United States Supreme Court may soon liberate the biblically conservative church from old "prejudices" that should have long ago been "jettisoned," forcing it into "rightly bowing to the enlightenments of modernity," in the words of a recent writer in The New York Times.

    Apparently one of the "enlightenments of modernity" is the romanticizing and championing of the primitive religions of "indigenous pipples." Goodness knows, they seem to be on the same side of the political spectrum and I've never heard them go after each other. And where would the militant "indigenous" rights people be without the vocabulary of nineteenth century European materialism to endlessly parrot? All in the name of their ancient and untainted ancestors, of course.

    Maybe the "enlightened" liberals will help the Aztecs rebuild their "temple."

    Jindal is also a Catholic!

    We won't hold that against him!

    But srsly, Cruz had already declared and he's almost everything we could want. Why are other conservatives still jumping in and splintering our vote?

    Were it not for Cruz I would favor Jindal over all the other candidates. But with Cruz running (and having declared first), I think all these other people are simply splintering the conservative vote.

    Cruz was first; Cruz is solid; let's all unite behind Cruz!

    I hate to say it, but part of the blame for this state of affairs lies with chrstian conservatives whose entire argument for morality is "this is a chrstian country!" If that is so, then the instant it ceases to be a chrstian country then morality has no basis.

    When it comes to morality it is irrelevant who founded this country or what their religious beliefs were. Objective morality comes from G-D and nowhere else. Even when I was still a chrstian I was horrified by the implied relativism of the "national heritage" argument for morality. Isn't it time we jettison it? Of course, that means also jettisoning the "right" to practice any religion whatsoever and committing oneself to the One True Religion, and many of even the most militant conservatives don't have the stomach for that.

    As for the quote from the smart-mouthed brat about "primitive people who wondered where the rain came from," it sounds to me as if she still retains the chrstian cultural supremacism which she doubtless condemns very loudly. Were I a member of one of de' 'ow you say, "indigenous pipples," I would be enraged and demand an apology. Doesn't she know that all condemnations of religion are to be limited only to the Fundamentalist Protestantism of the American Bible Belt?

    Is the questioner assuming that there is some sort of external objective moral standard which forbids “homophobia” and which judges A-mighty G-d???

    Moreover, there is no Old Testament precedent for the need or establishment of an infallible magisterium.

    Sorry, but you're retrojecting your Protestantism onto ancient Jews.

    Israel was to set up courts in every city (with the largest being of course at Jerusalem) and the Torah obligated Jews to abide by their decisions. This authority exists today in the Battei Din (courts) and Torah decisors.

    The Torah enjoins several commandments the details of which are not spelled out in the Written Torah. When the Torah says to "heave" certain things and "wave" others, what does that mean? It has to mean something, right? It was written by G-d; it can't merely use words arbitrarily. Clearly there was a ritual for "waving" and a ritual for "heaving." But we are never told what they are. Furthermore, we are told that in some rituals people were "waved." Surely Martin Luther and John Calvin didn't claim to know how to reproduce that ritual, did they?

    Another good example is the laws of the Hebrew calendar. G-d didn't simply point to an Egyptian calendar hanging on the wall at the beginning of Exodus 12 and say "we'll call this the 'first month.'" The Egyptian calendar was a solar calendar. No, at the point in time described in the beginning of Exodus 12 G-d gave Moses a whole group of laws and regulation for correctly calculating the dates of the Jewish calendar. Those laws are found nowhere in the Written Torah or the rest of the Hebrew Bible, yet without them one could not observe a single Biblical feast. In fact, even those Protestants who practice a Judaeo-chrstian syncretism, while rejecting anything "not explicitly in the bible," nevertheless implicitly recognize the authority of the Oral Torah when they accept the current dates of the Jewish holidays hey celebrate.

    And finally, the big two: 1)the Written Torah consists of nothing but a list of over 304,000 consonants. There are no vowels. There is no punctuation. The organization of these consonants into words with their proper verbal pronunciation come from the Oral Torah, without which the Written Torah would be indecipherable.
    2)Before the invention of the printing press or even before the Torah had been translated into another language, it was transmitted from generation to generation by learned soferim (scribes) who wrote it by hand in accordance to the most minute of rules and regulations (none of which, again, are elucidated in the Written Torah). The rules include what skins may be used as writing parchment, which tendons may be used to stitch them together, and what juices may be used to compound the ink. And it dictates the sizes and shapes of the letters and the "crowns" attached to them. This is the source of every single Pentatueuch translation in history, and the correctness of every translation depends entirely and assumes fully that the method and oral laws which govern the writing of Torah Scrolls are 100% authentic and trustworthy. I know Protestants don't like to hear this kind of talk because the Catholic claim that "you wouldn't have the bible without us!" has turned them off, but there is absolutely no comparison with the Catholic claims. Without authentically G-d-given oral laws instructing how to copy out a kosher Torah Scroll there would be no Bibles in the world today . . . not one. And in case some of you may be unaware of it, this method of hand-writing Torah Scrolls has been followed continuously since Moses himself and it is these kosher Torah Scrolls that are ritually read in Jewish worship.

    My ethno-cultural attachments to American Fundamentalist Protestantism sometimes distort my own beliefs and I'm sure many Protestants assume that I believe just as they do on everything. This is not true and, to tell the truth, some Catholic/Orthodox criticisms of Protestantism are valid. But their answer to Protestantism is so fallacious that it gives Oral Tradition a bad name.

    Of course, what Protestants mean when they speak of "perspecuity of Scripture" is not any of these things but rather those matters pertaining to "salvation." This chrstian "salvation" is a will-o'-the-wisp about which all the various chrstians have never agreed and never will agree. It is the "new testament" that keeps all those who (at least in theory) fear the One True G-d divided and constantly at each others' throats. Just as the "Pharasaical legalism" which all chrstians so hypocritically denounce is exactly what G-d intended and what the world needs.

    Maybe you'll believe it when 'Adam HaRi'shon is resurrected and tells you.

    This raises, of course, the deeper issue here: to what extent can a member of the Roman Catholic Church disagree with the official teachings of his Church and still be a faithful Catholic? Can one reject the teaching of a papal encyclical while remaining a faithful Catholic? If so, can he also reject a doctrine which the pope has declared infallible?

    In Catholicism today there appears to be one and only one hard and fast rule: it is taboo and "un-Catholic" to accept the literal facticity of the Biblical narratives; especially Genesis, Daniel, Jonah, and Esther. Acceptance of higher Biblical criticism is a de facto defining point in determining that one is truly Catholic.

    The fact that higher criticism was invented by Protestants is utterly lost on Catholics and Orthodox today.

    Judging by his name, he's going to have to commit suicide right along with them.

    To all you abysmally ignorant neigh-sayers:

    Surely you all know that no FReepers are engaging in cross-dressing or pedophilia (G-d forbid!). Unless you are very, very stupid you understand that we are simply FReepers who love the series. Yet you persist in childishly branding every single adult fan of the show as a perverted (and left wing) fruitcake. You must know that these accusations against us, fellow FReepers whom you have known and interacted with for years (I've been a brony for four years but a FReeper for almost sixteen) are all false. They are intended for one purpose and one purpose only: to ridicule and to wound.

    What we have ever done to cause you to distrust us I don't know. What I do know is that you are hypocrites. You complain about the cheapening of the culture, yet you make threads celebrating vulgar TV shows like "Breaking Bad" and "Justified" (full confession: I watched this season of "Justified" as well) and fulminate about how stellar and clever these profanity-laced shows are.

    "Friendship is Magic" contains no vulgar language, no political message, no subversion of traditional family life (in fact, it actually celebrates rural, small town, and agricultural life, containing perhaps the only positive "redneck" character on all of television right now), and no promotion of any of the sick activity you people are accusing it of promoting. Yes, there are weirdos in this fandom as in any other, but they are far from the majority. I am quite certain that the cast, crew, and most of the fandom are raging liberals for the simple reason that everyone seems to be so in these times. Yet the producers and actors have chosen not to use the show to shove their own personal agendas down anyone's throats. Doubtless some of you are afficianados of Manga or Anime, most of which is far, far worse if not downright pornographic.

    You people are projecting "diaper man" and "pajama boy" onto an entire fandom, which includes several of us, your fellow FReepers. It is you, not we, who are being childish and immature here. Shoot, even the forum at Jewish Task Force (a militant Kahanist web community) has bronies! They don't feel the need to panic and scream to prove their masculinity. If some of you do . . . well, I guess you know yourselves better than we do.

    Crazieman was going to start a brony ping list for those of us who love the show to discuss it. Thanks to you, that plan is now apparently dead. Even if it had been implemented you would have apparently felt so threatened that you would not have left us in peace. Meanwhile, your threads celebrating over vulgar shows are never interfered with, nor would anyone who attempted to do so go undisciplined. But you all feel you have a special entitlement not only to dislike this show without watching a single episode, but to prevent its fans here from even discussing the show in peace. And this makes you what . . . "conservative?" "American?" "Religious?" I'm a genuine religious fanatic, but I have no trouble enjoying a fantasy show just as you probably enjoy Tolkien or Lewis or sci-fi. No one accuses Tolkien of being "subversive" or "anti-religion" (despite the fact that his whole purpose was to create a pagan mythology for England complete with numerous "gxds"). FReepers praise "The Chronicles of Narnia" despite the fact the stories are full of pagan Greco-Roman "gxds." Why in the name of all that is reasonable is FIM somehow subversive or religion or America or good morals in a way these others are not?

    Thank you, fellow FReepers, for showing just what childish little brats you all are in denying to FReeper bronies the simple request of a ping list to discuss among ourselves an excellent and perfectly harmless children's cartoon that is good enough to be enjoyed by all ages. I hope you're all proud of yourselves.

    Unfortunately, as I pointed out in a previous thread, you are simply being @$$holes. This observation was true then and it is true now.
