Liberals don't make us use terms like "gay marriage." We do that all by ourselves.

And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
The RCC has NEVER worshiped Jesus as God only. There is a reason He is called God, one of which is He makes the rules. If you CHANGE the rules, then you are setting yourself up as god and NOT worshiping the only and only true God. So the statement John Y is making is complete fabrication.
Psalm 50:21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes
A sad story but needed to remind people of the history. What is ironic is that, while I would guess 99 percent of Jews in the US believe in the Holocaust, a good one-third or more do not believe in God! I have spoken with a few who say they CANNOT believe in God BECAUSE of the Holocaust.

Thanks John, but the new catecism, along with various official church doctrines and dagmas paint a different picture. First of all, Roman Catholics pray to Mary and the saints for things that only God can provide, not to mention that Mary and the saints would need to be omniscient and omnipresent to hear and respond to billions of mass prayers, novenas, etc, etc. The other thing is that Mary is officially co-mediatrix, and more disturbingly, co-redemptrix, according to church doctrine. There are many other proofs I could mention, but lastly, the church of Rome itself says that there can be no salvation without Mary, the Queen of Heaven..."mother of God, our hope, our salvation". Hmmm.
OK, so if he is responsible, can he now be impeached? Or is this another case like former Attorney General Janet Reno taking 'full responsibility' for the futile deaths at the govt attack at Waco, Texas? In other words, George Orwell, thank you, we have now arrived at 'double speak' where words have lost their meaning.
Compare this with this story: a bicyclist got killed by a car in the early morning hours, the driver left him on the road. It took the police a month to finally track him down. They have now charged him with being responsible for the man's death. What do you think will happen to him?
As is frequently the case, it is more interesting to read the comments added to the story (at the Charisma website) than just to read the story; some said they would never eat at church potlucks, others tell stories about families living in poverty and filth but still bringing (bad) food to the church potluck. My mother used to say, if we found a pebble or stone in the beans, that she had read that we eat a peck of dirt in our lifetimes, so that was just part of it. People who work in grain silos processing wheat say you would never eat any baked goods if you knew what went into the flour. I am not a fan of the modern 'food trucks' but the fact is that our govt regularly closes down regular restaurants due to roaches, etc. I do believe in the vaccination theory, that you develop resistance from small exposures (and by the way, it's good to see another study has proven no connection between MMR vaccine and autism). Another news story was about how people can overcome peanut allergy by being exposed early on in life. And it's an old story that modern construction methods, insulation materials have caused a problem by sealing up homes so that outside air (and all the good/bad stuff in it) does not circulate, and so now we have 'sick building syndrome.'
Mike wrote: Within the man's statements above lies some of the very reasons for the problem. Once the term "gay marriage" is allowed, esp when used by those upholding marriage in its true and only sense, half the battle is already lost. Words mean things. There is marriage, period. Why do those who believe this continue to make it a rights issue by recognizing the "gay marriage" terminology? What is "complete gay-marriage acceptance" anyway? Is a less complete acceptance better? Pitiful.

The article reads "... a theory that, in its infancy, the baby Earth may have swallowed an entire planet similar to Mercury." That sounds plausible.
...just wonder how many people will go along with it as it comes from a "reputable" source. Related but off-topic some what- I have to ask, how is evolution even still remotely possible with all of the monkeys that have been running around for thousands of years? They're not in transition. They are still just monkeys. There are no transitional monk mans...well,monks,lol but not monkmans.
Say, just because this article is 15 years old doesn't mean it's relevant It is about the iMac. What is interesting about the NY Time article they had quite a look at the life of an engineer in the iMac plant. How things were going great -- until Apple started moving their production to China. It is said in the article that Apple started doing their manufacturing in China for the iPhones because they could get all the necessary engineers in a couple of weeks while it would be months in the U.S. What I find irritating Apple is gripping about the lack of engineers and then they throw many of their U.S. ones out of work, like the fellow described in the NY Times article. Since I did get the article on my tablet, it is a mobile style article, and the NY Times has tendency to kills those after a year or two, so don't wait 15 years to read it. It's lengthy but quite good.
With more and more 'popular' evangelical hirelings willing to accept the false/no gospel of Rome, Mike Gendrons ministry which is characterized by love, humility and compassion for RC people is one of great importance in the spiritual battle against apostasy, ecumenism and compromise.
