Yes, Chris, I agree, though in this case I would suppose people would find these documents even more interesting if they knew Greek and Latin? It will also be interesting to see what they don't make public. At least in the past, they had this problem, Vatican Still Refuses To Open Holocaust Records To Jewish Scholars I recommend this article which was originally a Jerusalem Post article, but I certainly recommend the site that it is currently on

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
The course of the age prophetically requires things getting worse not better before the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as testified to by 2 Timothy 3:13 KJV in the context of all of 2 Timothy chapter 3.
An up to date illustration of the truth contained in the last paragraph, from today's events, is provided from this screen capture I grabbed earlier today from the CBC internet website.:
President Dwight D. Eisenhower wrote: Throughout America's adventure in free government, our basic purposes have been to keep the peace; to foster progress in human achievement, and to enhance liberty, dignity and integrity among people and among nations. To strive for less would be unworthy of a free and religious people. Any failure traceable to arrogance, or our lack of comprehension or readiness to sacrifice would inflict upon us grievous hurt both at home and abroad.
I'll remind we bailed out Great Britain twice in the 20th Century, and that with support of both Democrat and Republicans. This is one reason for a continuity of foreign policy between Republicans and Democrats We do have aberrations like Banana War Bush But as Eisenhower pointed out we had -- and still do have problems with Military-Industrial Complex. (q.v. Bush above)
SUPER CLEANSING SERMON An urgent call to come to the waters of life. Isaiah 8:20 came to mind. A liar ". . . no light in them."
Imagine not caring that Jesus was put to death BECAUSE of this very sin. God has revealed Himself through His Son and yet liars suppress revealed TRUTH. Do they realize that they are among those who said "Let him be crucified:" We will not have that man rule over us. They call Him "Lord" while at the same time not wanting to be saved by Him (Phil 2:11).
Every tongue will confess Him as LORD, but not savior. So then all professor have to examine themselves to see if they are really in the faith.
I once asked SteveR how a Catholic could be saved, seeing as how they believe a false gospel. He responded by quoting Ephesisns 2:8, and asked me what part of "not of yourselves" did I not understand, clearly demonstrating to me that either he does not understand that verse, or was posting subterfuge again. Funny thing is, if I only needed one verse to prove they arent saved, that would be the one! They deny the first half of the verse, and believe it is of themselves. His response smacked of either hypercalvinism, or universalism, implying that they dont have to do anything (faith, repentance), they are just saved. I dont think he meant it that way, but thats how it came off.
Great Sermon! â€ś A Message for Blind Pastors â€ť
You have counted the cost of discipleship by losing your "self" in the will of God who sent a Savior to die BECAUSE of us. You will assuredly be ostracized by some lip service preachers/Christians, because of this message; those who call you brethren. May God strengthen you in the inward man, and bless you abundantly in every way. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for yielding to the will, work, and plan of God for His glory and the good of man. Most of all THANK GOD!
The constitution is a manmade document and its words were not dictated by our holy God; everyone should agree on that point. When someone takes the oath of office (state ones are very similar) they are in effect saying they are swearing unto the Lord to not obey Him but men. I say that because there will always be a conflict between scripture and the constitution or the laws of the land and they have solemnly sworn to uphold the constitution or the prevailing laws. So Obama, like Reagan, took an oath to disobey God if the culture wanted certain things at the expense of the word of God. How many politicians have we ever seen resign because of a conflict between manmade law and Godâ€™s law. How many executive level politicians have we ever seen that said they would obey our holy God at the expense of the constitution or the laws of the land? The below is the oath the president took, or very close to it.
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Precisely! For SteveR to liken Christopher000 to a scorned woman without good reason is an example of a hypocrite with a big beam in his eye.
Pat Buchanon has an interesting article about this failure of Catholic liberals and the fireworks associated

One clash involved racism
"Cardinal Walter Kasper has been the prime mover of the liberalization of Catholic teaching on sexual morality. When an African bishop objected to the report, Kasper retorted, â€śYou canâ€™t speak about this with Africans. â€¦ Itâ€™s not possible. â€¦ Itâ€™s a taboo.â€ť
Hearing this insult, Burke went upside the head of his brother cardinal:
â€śIt is profoundly sad and scandalous that such remarks were made by a cardinal of the church. They are a further indication of the determination â€¦ to advance Cardinal Kasperâ€™s false positions, even by means of racist remarks about a significant and highly respected part of the Synod membership.â€ť
Great Sermon! The Pope, The Vicar of Christ was quoted in an article in the Mail Online saying that God is not afraid of "New Things". Doesn't he know that one of the attributes of God is his immutability. Mal 3:6, Heb 13:8. Morals of a society may change, but God's word does not. Amen
A Message for Blind Pastors You have counted the cost of discipleship by losing your "self" in the will of God who sent a Savior to die BECAUSE of us. You will assuredly be ostracized because of this message - by those who call you their brethren.
May God strengthen you in the inward man, and bless you abundantly in every way.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for yielding to the will, work, and plan of God for His glory and the good of man. Most of all THANK GOD!

Thanks Ladybug and TS...I wish he was still able to have civil conversations.
TS, no...I quoted pretty much verbatim so it must be in there somewhere. It's something I've brought up a couple of times since but would never get a response. I remember it being only part of a larger commet.
From the news: "Two years ago, he said he personally supports same-sex marriage, but that each state should decide for itself. As of today, his views have changed again â€“ stating, in an interview with the New Yorker, that the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to same-sex marriages in all 50 states."
What a guy. Hey Jim/Lincoln, will you remain silent on this as well? Surely there's a Bush thing in it somewhere.
