    Ironman, what a ridiculous notion to sell the art…would you propose that the Louvre or Smithsonian sell the pieces that they curate? In the case of the Vatican, this collection is not only priceless in it’s historical value, but the art is sacred.

    I don’t understand why whenever there is a piece written about the Catholic Church all the haters come out of the woodwork. Maybe if you attended Mass again, it would help remove the chip on your shoulder……just sayin’.

    very shallow thinking Sapper…..The real truth about sin is in the forgiveness.

  • [4] November 7, 2014 at 11:26am

    You are correct. The ancient Jews were a “stiff necked” lot and they were punished for it….God sent His only son to atone for the sins of ALL man kind, not just the ones we humans think are worthy. The sooner the so called religious figure this out, the better the world will be.

    I think Christ has already answered your question in the Beatitudes, Blessed are the merciful……Isn’t everyone seeking God welcomed to come to Him? If He denied sinners from His presence, Heaven would be a pretty lonely place.

    The entire premise of the Christian philosophy IS love and compassion; love the sinner, but hate the sin.

    When you look at the big picture, all of this seems very strange…..

    Maybe we should be careful about what we wish for……..what we’ll end up with are domestic travel bans. Think about it.

    see my post regarding CURRENT CDC guidelines for health care workers…….these guidelines were issued as late as yesterday. There is no way that the recommended PPE would protect you from this disease. Scary stuff!!

  • [2] October 15, 2014 at 7:39am

    1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
    • Have an ample supply of disposable gloves, hospital masks, and fluid resistant gowns, and be able
    to provide a face shield or goggles for all healthcare personnel (HCP) who may evaluate or care for
    a potential EVD patient.
    • recommends double-gloving in the care of suspected or confirmed EVD patients. Given the
    high mortality associated with EVD and lack of approved specific treatment for this infection,
    hospitals may consider having HCP use a higher level of personal protective equipment than the
    minimum measures described in the CDC guidance.
    • Maintain proficiency in the proper donning and doffing of PPE

    THESE ARE DIRECT QUOTED GUIDELINES FOR HEALTH CARE PERSONEL DEAING WITH EBOLA PATIENTS.

    zappa…halting flights out of the country does not seem unreasonable, or at the very least travel from the affected countries must be limited.

  • [1] October 14, 2014 at 4:59pm

    Sad, but true. Precious time is being wasted with the blame game on all fronts. Governments in all countries had better get their collective s h I t together and figure out how to stop the spread of this disease!!

  • [25] October 14, 2014 at 9:45am

    I have asked that question a thousand times!!….there is no way that a garden variety hospital, or it’s staff is qualified to deal with this type of virus!!! At the very least, some one from the CDC should be on premises at all times supervising and instructing on the proper ways for containment…….It makes my head want to explode!!

    When will we figure out that you can’t fight or win a war against ideology? This is a cultural issue inside these countries that has been going on for a thousand years…..and no “nation building” on our part is going to change that……our government is full of fools if they think other wise!

    I say keep our borders tight and let them battle it out until Kingdom come……and at the rate it’s going, that may be sooner than we think.

    The violence in this world has nothing to do with God, man has always had free will . This is what we choose. The pain and suffering we inflict on each other goes against what God has asked of us, we’re just to selfish to stop it.
    As far as the tragedy mentioned in this story, this is where your Faith comes in, we were never promised a life with out suffering….we were promised that our Faith in God would get us through our struggles.
    You ask where is God?……He is right where you need Him.

    I think any one that travels to these middle eastern countries at this time should be banned from retuning to the countries where they originated from.

    Their passports should become invalid.

    If the priest repented and confessed his sin, why would he need to be excommunicated?? I think suspension of certain of the Sacraments happen, But by reason of his Baptism, he is still entitled to a Christian burial.
    Farther down the list you say “Forgive them Father for they know not what they do”…What is it they “do”?…..They hate. In order to forgive you must offer love…..unconditionally. That is the true measure of forgiveness and Christianity.

    I would be interested to see how you back up that statement. RCIA follows the same format for all Dioceses.

    As for a Catholic education, my kids attend a small school in a small town (current enrollment less that 200). The school consistently displays test scores that exceed the national standard by 30-40%!!! In my opinion, a Catholic education is still the best way to go.

    Social Justice has always been the teaching of the Catholic Church, and the Bible….we are obligated to care for the “widows and orphans”. The problem lies not with the Church, but with the Government. Social justice was never intended for the lazy, only for those who could not help themselves. It all ran smoothly when the churches (all denominations) were responsible for the poor. As with anything else, it only gets screwed up when the government gets involved.

    I agree. Islam in not the only religion with dietary restrictions. I prefer buying Kosher or Halal meats, etc……..you have a better chance of knowing what you’re eating that way.

    Nothing like a little social media to put “Spring” in the air!!!!……what’s a little civil unrest between friends!!!

  • March 28, 2014 at 12:36am

    Obviously Irrelevant!!… I made no mention of a lack of interest, only the quality of the journalism. The articles ARE mostly divisive and DO inflame situations that are already out of control. Do you see anything that is changing the world?………..
