sc, why do you gotta be so graphic with your descriptions? how about honoring the Godly men around here? I'm not into shock reporting, unless people don't know what's going on, the advertising is fairly obvious.
of course they do! their religion is one guy takes all the working guys money and gives a little bit to a few other guys and keeps the rest. kind of a licensed thievery, that's why they've always got to teach that God is dead and they are the great center of the universe.... but God is not dead, neither is His law, written on their conscience, there to be a nuisance to them!

Amen and good example, bro. A little off subject, but how did your day at market go?

Ditto. What Infuriates me is that the children are being taught this trash as if were undisputed scientific, biologic fact. No ifs, ands, or buts...God made you this way, so embrace it, and anyone who says different is hate filled and ignorant. Boy, oh boy. My Roman Catholic extended family (wifes) all believe this nonscense as do their children who are being brought up in the ways of Rome. Whether or not Rome teaches it as sin, the vast majority of Catholics, according to polls, are embracing the Sodomite plight by condoning their unions, etc. The church says one thing in their writings but nobody hears the truth preached at mass. Nobody hears any preaching about the eternal fate of sodomites or their bodys being ravaged by the lifestyle disease. Nobody calls out the sodomites sitting proudly in the pews to warn them of the hell fire they will wake up in should they die that morning after the mass. Nobody preaches the hard hitting, no holds barred truth because nobody wants to offend. Seemingly, they would rather just let them scream in torments, day and night, without rest, forever and ever. This is not love. This is hatred. This goes for the mega churches and any other wi
"The Vatican leader has met unofficially with a number of evangelicals in recent months including Texas televangelists James Robinson and Kenneth Copeland and other Pentecostal preachers."
The current state of the church is in such disrepair and on a very fast downward spiral. Well, maybe not the true church, but the imposters who give the world the illusion that they are Christ's body. The gross comprimise is really something to witness. This subtle falling away is so crystal clear as God's word becomes blurred, and even antiquated in todays brave new, anything goes, come as you are, God loves everyone, don't hurt anyones feelings, can't risk losing tithes by speaking boldly, we are all brothers and sisters, ecumenical church. A pope being welcomed by any bible only believing, preaching church sends a very wrong message to those who don't know any better and reinforces the claim that Rome is the one true church trying to reclaim it's fragmented flock. Come back home, children, is the message, and Mary's immaculate heart weeps as her children remain seperated. : /
