    Nancy Pelosi has excommuicated herself along with all others that support abortion. This is a simple matter of Canon Law that provides a simple framework for all in the Church. A person need not be handed a specific document from the vatican to verify they are excommunicated, that is usually reserved to clerics (Luther) and heads of state (kings/presidents). Instead of issuing non stop excommunications from the Vatican itself the church relies on subsidiary to point out that it is the local bishops responsibility to administer the Sacraments. A Bishop can fail here, as well as priests, but the fact she has excommunicated herself is a matter of canon law, not of emotions or indifferentism or even a false sense of mercy.

    A question to Protestants and the orthodox for that matter

    If contraception is ok for you what is wrong with the same sex attracted people and their disordered passions? Objectively speaking, according to the natural law both are disorders like bulimia

    @combative that’s circular reasoning. The Catholic Church canonized the scriptures in the 300′s because it had and continues to have the authority to loose and bind on all who call themselves christian

    @combative if that’s what you think why are you against purgatory? When you say instantly you mean there is a quick moment of purifying which is compatible with the teaching so why the semantics?

    Right so why follow the traditions Luther Calvin and others instituted 1500 years later by their own interpretation of the bible which the proceeded to change by taking out books without objective authority to do so? Our traditions are apostolic and come from the lips of Christ. As Paul says follow the traditions handed down whether they are by epistle for oral

    So the Maccabees were pagan now and so are the Jews. Ok you are very studied

    So only that which is perfect can enter into heaven. Yet when you die will you have no attachment to any sins?

    So his flesh profits nothing? Come on. Whoever wishes to follow me must take up his cross. Salvation is a free gift our acceptance of doing his will to act according to his will for us is a daily choice. You can lose your saltyness

    the idea that Israel is Christianity’s best friend in the middle east is an American perspective divorced of whats actually going on especially in Israel where Christians are treated as second class citizens. If any country deserves recognition for the defense of Christians its Lebanon because the government there has always protected the Christians, Jews and Muslims

    hes ignorant of the situation for Christians there and thinks a speech will fix everything in a complex situation. He just needs to be informed

    Just so everyone knows Israel is a state comprised of many Jewish people, but it is a state. One does not need to be a supporter of the israeli state to be a Christian, that is purely an American protestant idea that you dont see pop up until the 1800′s when a call for a Jewish state was initiated. The situation is not as easy as many of you think, so unless you are willing to do your homework on the situation of Christians in the middle east and their second class relegation in Israel itself, you are sticking your nose in places you have no clue about… hint hint, what did the Christians tell you in the middle east when Bush wanted to invade Iraq? You dont know the situation on the ground, but you are all happy to condemn the Christians in the middle east without knowing the context? You are blind to their situation because they are not protestants.

    considering that circumcision was the entrance into the Jewish covenant with God, and that Paul also makes this relation in Colossians 2, i think its rather obvious that infants are baptized. Part of the problem is that you are so separated from the ancient church that you dont realize that in the didache which was a catechism of the apostles makes this explicit by at least 60 when our earliest printing comes from. You speak of His Holy Church as being lawless… what a paradox. One man says they are too worried about laws, next you know they are lawless. Confirmation is a sacrament related to accountability. Baptism is the initial entrance into the covenant.

    specifically speaking it has to do more with invincible ignorance which is something only God can ultimately judge, that the church only recognizes the possibility of

    there is actually more nuance to Extra ecclesiam nulla salus then just saying outside the church there is no salvation. Specifically speaking anyone in Heaven is Catholic, but that doesnt mean they were so when alive. God can grant salvation to anyone he should so wish but one must be part of the church, which is his body for salvation to be realized. So there is a possibility, but not a guarantee for those outside the visible bonds of the Church. This all follows from Christs own teaching. That he established one church with authority to speak for him that would be led by the spirit into all truth, that of which he said he who hears you hears me, he who rejects you rejects me, that has the authority to loose and bind on all the faithful, that is hierarchical (obvious from the scriptures), that pronounces anathemas against heretics and excommunicates with the authority granted by Christ, that was founded on Christ who shares his rockness, his shepardness and his kingship with Peter specifically which is recognized by the apostles as the earthly head of the church and still recoginzed by the fathers for his successor because Peter is an office, not just a name. So if someone knows this but rejects it they do so against Gods will for it was he who granted the standard that he who hears you hears me (ie:infallibility, not impeccability), now its possible there are many non catholics during life in heaven, but we dont have any guarantee on the matter and pray for conversion

    simply put there are certain sacred cows on the right. One must never give any criticism of free markets or prepare to be thrown overboard. A Catholic does not define himself by an economic theory no matter how helpful it is at the time. Economics rely on principles which have moral foundations to them. Marxism, as the Holy Father has said is wrong and violates nearly every principle, and distorts others. Capitalism has solid principles but it can be distorted, and unfettered (remember that the US is not the only country the Pope speaks to) can cause great evil. Just regulation and a moral character are required for the system to operate justly and ultimately for the common good.

    I am glad he critisizes the system, its not God given or anything like that and not therefore beyond criticism which can make it better. The very things he said have been echoed from the scriptures to the Fathers to the doctors to the present in the church because they deal with morality. If you cant handle criticism tough. But for those able to learn why capitalism is criticized (not condemned) and then help make it even better

    science… you can thank Catholics for that too…your welcome by the way. See we can multitask Lole, give it a try

    enjoy your reading! really if you could just see that the world didnt begin in 1517 how your world would be rocked

    did Moses and Elijah die 500+ years before they showed up? You see there is no contradiction

  • August 13, 2013 at 11:04am

    yeah you tell them! Those people and their angel story…hahahaha

    I mean it was only a priest that showed up in a bad situation when nothing is working, he anoints, absolves and prays with the girl then for the situation and then things all of the sudden go right….yeah only logic needed here….hahahahaha
