Thanks for your response. I've pointed out in another reply in this thread a couple of good summaries and and one pretty good critique to the Pope's exhortation. Although I don't know this for sure, I imagine that…"
You misunderstood what I wrote. I didn't say it wasn't a concern at all.
I said that in the rest of the world, Christians struggle daily with enslavement, rape, torture, and murder. American Christians, who have never yet…"
"Except that we're NOT the most charitable people on earth, Dave.
We were the most charitable nation in 2011.
In 2012 (the latest figures that are published), we fell to fifth place behind (in order) Australia, Ireland, Canada, and New Zealand.…"
Ms. Zoanelli has posted that she's dropping out of this conversation as being too much for her.
I don't see what your discussion of the Bigelow report, whether or not it is true, has to do with the point of the post.…"
"I found his comments to be a bit too tender; however, at the same, time, the Pope is striving to engage Muslims in dialogue. He wants to bring them to peaceful cooperation with Christianity. And Islam is a heretical derivation of…"
"So let me get this straight, Jeff.
I agree with the Pope.
I defend the Pope.
I research Rush Limbaugh's comments about the Pope's apostolic exhortation and call him out for them.
And for that I'm a leftist?
That's Twilight Zone…"
"You seem to have missed an important point here, Donald. If you would look at my track record, you would that I don't comment on Rush Limbaugh except where I have listened to him.
In this case, I went back and researched what Limbaugh…"
"No need to suspect. I don't listen to Limbaugh for anything. He's a buffoon and a blowhard, and about the only advice he could give me (how to conceal a drug addiction; how to find a good divorce attorney) is advice I neither…"
If the Pope's document is Marxist, then the book of Acts in the Bible is Marxist. The Holy Father is proclaiming what the Bible teaches, which is what he is supposed to do. I have no problem with that; I expect him to do that,…"
If you read the document you will find that the Pope is calling on the Bishops, and through them, all Christians, to solve income inequality. More than that, though, the Pope is calling on the Bishops, and through them, all Christians,…"
"We're headed in that direction, yes, and we would do well to heed Dietrich Bonhoeffer's words, "When one has boarded the wrong train, it does no good to go running down the corridor in the opposite direction.""
"Hmmm, I missed this post earlier. Caught Karin's reply and read it.
Jeff, quit making an idol out of Rush Limbaugh. He was wrong.
He was wrong because he commented ignorantly on a document he had not read.
He was wrong because he…"
"Good point, Karin.
One question I learned to ask (from reading the catholic.com posts :lol: ) was "What do you call the male person who contributed half your DNA?" or "What do you call your mother's husband?""
I can forgive them; I MUST forgive them. That won't stop me from calling ignorance, stupidity, corruption, venality, and bigotry by their proper names. :-)
Our Bishops need these words from the Holy Father more than many in the…"
Pope Francis expressed himself clearly. He went on longer than I would have preferred (and I read every word in every sentence of every paragraph), and he used far too much passive voice in his writing, but he expressed himself…"
