    You have no idea how the Church “picks” its saints. So be careful about speaking of Sainthood and its legitimacy. Many take hundreds of years, some are worthy to be made saints the next day: those who die for their love of Christ.

    If artworks weren’t in the control of the Catholic Church, they would be sitting in someones parlour and never seen by real people. You need to remember that there is plenty of money available for the poor. It is not just “states” who give to the poor, the vast wealth of individuals are the main givers to the poor. Trust me, the church does more for the poor than any single country except for the United States. It is OUR responsibility to help the poor, not the Church. We ARE the Church.

    If you really wanted to argue legitimacy of Catholicism, why do you continue to refer to sites that are historically incorrect? I can do the same thing about any subject. If you are going to argue “facts” let us refer to the Early Church Fathers, who argued real issues of the early church, including whether or not Jesus was really God’s Son, or the dogma of the Trinity.

    Your arguments remind me of what Luther did in his 96 Theses, taking some truth and throwing a considerable amount of cow excrement into the mix.

    In a sense, the Pope is God’s representative on earth. Because of Jesus’ making Peter the first pope and also gave him (and his successors) the power to forgive sins and not forgive sins, in MY NAME, the Pope does have significant spiritual power on earth (and his priests) to “loose or retain” sins. The Pope is not God, period.

    The Pope does not take the “place” of Jesus Christ. The Pope is the Vicar of Christ, His representative on earth. A priest, by his ordination to the Catholic Priesthood, represents Christ when he performs those sacraments that Christ instituted. That is why the Catholic Church (and the Eastern Churches) is the only Church that has legitimate Holy Eucharist, because the priest is a direct descendent of the original Apostles through the “laying of the Hands” at his ordination.

    The Priest does not judge, the priest acts as God’s intercessor, God forgives sins, not the priest. The priest is there to offer support and have some one to talk to about sinning no more. Protestants believe all sins are forgiven because of Jesus’ death. Unfortunately, that is not true. You must ask for forgiveness each time you sin.

    When a pope makes a statement “ex Cathedra,” which means, “from the chair,” it is DOGMA! When he makes an ‘off the cuff’ comment, as Pope Francis does, it is not Dogma. One has to be very careful to place statements of the Pope in context as to which form the comment is being made. Constantine was himself a persecutor of Christians when he was warring with Rome. He became a marginal believer because of his mother St. Helen. Constantine did not become a baptized Christian until he was on his deathbed because he knew that he was a sinner and wanted complete absolution, that the waters of Baptism offers. Constantine allowed the Christian Church to grow under his reign. Did he have any power over the administration of the Church? No. Anything that Constantine said, referring to the church, is no different than what you or I would say about the church.

    One small change in your statement. Pope’s have not always been Cardinals or even a Bishop. Many were married men with families. Some where chosen Pope’s who were major benefactors of the early Church, but were considered very holy men. That said, did the Church have problems with this nepotism? Yes they did. That was why there was a schism and the real Pope moved to Avignon, France for many years while the false Pope was ruining the Church. God always has a hand in his Church, and will not allow the Church to enter into permanent disorder or apostasy.

    The Bible was not written by God. It was written by man through the intervention of God’s Holy Spirit. And be careful, it is not wise to use the Bible to preach hate and disinformation, as do the Muslims and the Koran. And as a proven fact, Jesus chose Peter to be the “leader of His Church,” AND all of his successors. The Pope does not appoint himself to the “job.” Has there been bad popes? Yes, there has, the Pope is first a human and then he is a Vicar of Christ. The Church is not “God Almighty” it is the Body of Christ, as all Christians are.

    You need to spend a little time NOT reading the Bible and study the early Church Fathers who were responsible for spreading the Word long before the Canon of the Bible was officially chosen.

    You are full of hate. And not only that, your facts are all wrong. The Catholic Church did not slaughter million and millions of protestants. Where is your proof? If you call the Spanish Inquisition the means, the Spanish King did all the murdering. There has been more Catholic Christians sacrificed in the name of Jesus than any other religion. Now, that IS a fact.

    There isn’t any vaccine for plague.

    I think that if you took 4 years of Christian theology and not use the bible as your ONLY source of reference, the Reverend could of figured this out after the first year. The early Church Fathers had figured out what Jesus said and completely figured Him out before the current Bible Canon was chosen by the Council of Hippo in the third century. Unknownst to many Christians, the current Bible was just a ‘thought in the mind’ of its writers for 200 years after Christ’s murder, that makes the writings of the early Church Fathers that much more important.

    It won’t be too long before the BBC’s head news reader will be Mohammed Dickwad Ujic, with the speed that muslims are making babies in England.

    I’m actually surprised that Muslims didn’t attack these two “Havad” lawyers since Abraham is considered a major prophet of Islam too.

    Southern law hasn’t changed that much over the past 50 years. There are still many officers who are arrogant turds and treat people as subjects. Slowly things change down there.

    Why is this a surprise? The Wahhabi’s have been doing this stuff for years. They ARE the big funders of terrorism, not Iran. Iran is a small player in world wide terrorism. The Whahhabists have been funding madrassis schools to train ignorant terrorists in every country in the world for many years using our money from the sale of oil. One more reason to find our own oil.

    You’re a buffoon. The US government is our enemy.

    100 Suburban’s at $60,000+ each, $6 million. Let’s say, 200 employee’s @ $100,000+ per year, $20 million, plus the cost of rooms and food for all those rascals. So this little jaunt to St. Louis has a pretty high cost. DHS is putting to use all of that ammo they bought two years ago preparing for Ferguson.

    Aramark have historically been only concerned about their bottom line both in their food service and in their uniform divisions. The Chiefs and Royals do not use Aramark for their upscale food services, the only use them in the “cheap seats” concessions. They often operate their concessions understaffed, even during the World Series last month. When we attended the Royals, last summer, food was left out for hours in 90 degree evenings. Every once in a while when we had an opportunity to sit in the suite area, the food quality is considerably better and the service is great. We rarely eat anything at baseball/football games unless it comes out of a can or a closed container.

    The anti-gun lib’s in Colorado are not going to want to see this article.
