This person takes himself/herself/itself too seriously. A female brain? I have been female all my life but I don’t sit around claiming my brain is female. My brain is what it is. What does a male brain feel like? What does a female brain feel like?

“Based on our analysis, a middle-of-the-road warming scenario is more likely, at least for now,” Patrick Brown, a doctoral student at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment, said in a statement. “BUT this could change.” (Emphasis added)
Remember, when “but” is used, everything before that is BS.

Wrong, jackact. This actor is pro-life. He once talked a couple out of having an abortion.
I didn't know that. I like him even more! Thanks for sharing.

The teacher should be judged by her ability to teach, not what she says on Facebook.

The real engineering that is going on is that people are being trained to take offense and complain that their precious feelings are hurt. It won’t be long before the Supremes declare that people have a “Constitutional right” to have their feelings protected. This country is upside down. No protection for unborn children, but protection for feelings. God help us!!

Michael Savage refers to Susan Sarandon as Susan SaranWrap for a reason, no doubt. Furthermore, Msgr. Brennan is a coward. What ever happened to freedom of speech? This teacher spoke the truth, and to her, I say, “Bravo! You go, girl!”
The teacher was reinstated by the Monsignor. The Church is in a pickle. They are human they will at time overreact. Facebook is dangerous if you are not retired. It may still cause problems.

Interesting photo of Obama. He looks like he is holding in a fart crosswise.

Everyone here seems to be saying that a prolonged death is necessarily agonizing. I don’t see anyone mentioning the use of painkillers as part of comfort measures.
One of Satan’s tools in promoting the “right to die” is the very image you evoke of the dying process. It generally doesn’t involve what you are evoking, namely, lots of tubes and someone “tethered to machines.”
I watched my husband die for many months. He was under hospice care for ten months. He was an inspiration for many people, even the hospice workers. They nicknamed him “St. Michael” because he inspired so many people. I remember one nurse saying that the bedroom Mike was confined to “lit up” because of the grace and dignity he demonstrated in the last days of his life. Actually, even when Mike was not dying, he was inspiration to many. He was so kind and generous to everyone. The way we live our life is often the way we handle our death. If I could show only half the dignity that Mike did when it’s my time to go, I will have done well.

Yes, God can forgive anyone. But we are not suppose to deliberately sin because we expect to be forgiven. For example, we don’t go out and fornicate because we know we will be forgiven. That is the sin of presumption.

And your assertions are dogmatic, indeed.

Isn’t it possible that as time passes the cost of “fracking” could drop owing to developing cheaper ways to “frack?” Remember that first laptop computer you purchased for $3000 that had only 20 gigs of hard drive and a couple of mb of memory? My, how times have changed!!

What is your background? Are you a “recovering Catholic?”

Amen! And wonderful traditions indeed!

Actually, I have listened and sung the song “Refiner’s Fire” many times. It reminds me of Purgatory because it mentions refining fire that purifies and sets one apart for the Lord.

“Love how this article doesn’t mention a single biblical reference. How appropriate.”
What is your point? Does your statement not presuppose that one must find something specifically mentioned in the Bible to make it a reality? You see, that is the difference between a Catholic and/or a Greek Orthodox and a Protestant. I don’t know why people argue and argue and argue over these matters. A Protestant generally thinks that something must be specifically mentioned in the Bible in order for it to be a spiritual reality. A Catholic does not believe this. And a Catholic does not believe it for a reason. Another thing . . . think of this. What came first, the chicken or the egg? A Protestant thinks that the Church sprang from the Bible. A Catholic thinks that the Bible sprung from the Church. Knowing and understanding this, one would seemingly understand how and why Catholics and Protestants have different worldviews, more specifically, different eschatologies

Everything about secularism is manmade.

Are you familiar with the song, “Refiner’s Fire?” To me, that song is about Purgatory.
November 5, 2014 at 8:26am
For your sake, I hope Purgatory does not exist. But what are you going to do when you die and you find out it DOES exist? Personally, I would rather believe in the hardship of Purgatory, and then find out it does not exist, than to NOT believe in it, and be unpleasantly surprised that it DOES exist. Just sayin’.

I am a Catholic who loves Her teachings. I’m not crazy about the institutional Church. For example, I hate those big hats that Bishops wear. I can understand why these outfits scandalize Protestants and others. And meat on Friday? I cannot understand that either. Eating fish is not a sacrifice for me. I wish this practice would be replaced by something more meaningful. But then again, what would constitute “meaningful” in the eyes of many in modernity?

Hee, hee. Is that an allusion to Chick Publications?
