    You know what, I was harsh and I apologize for that. I thought you were something you are not. I get a little angry when someone calls me a “blantant” liar. I also get angry when someone uses my words to bash my church.

    Respectful is as respectful does. Will you apologize in turn?

    Some of these comments are pretty funny, but in all seriousness, this area has waaaaaay to much geotechnical potential for jokes. It’s a little bit alarming.

    Lol, lets throw in a Duck Dynasty beard and headband too.

    Awesome! Keep fighting the good fight.:)

    You nailed it. An entire vicious cycle of atrocity brought on by sin, which in the end will make us all slaves. Stand for righteousness.

    What this woman shows is how abortion isn’t just about murder, – its about women leading their rest of their lives burdened by regret. Why she would want to foist that on someone else, I don’t know. She’s obviously pretty selfish.

    What what’s up with the interviewers “Stigma” comment, – like women should go around parading this stuff as if it’s no big deal? Any time a child dies, its a big deal.

    All on national tv with a caring, sympathetic and “empowering” interviewer. How far we have fallen.

    “You can shove your ignorance comment where the sun does not shine…Some catholics (hypocrites) say ‘Read the Catechism of the Catholic Church’…only to have you tell me it’s irrelevant…?

    Piss off…”

    These words speak way louder than your scripture does.

    May God bless and help you.

    Easy there. The Catholic church is part of the body of Christ, as are all denominations that profess Christ crucified as savior. It exists as it does by God’s will, for His purpose.

    I do think we Catholics could do a little better job outwardly showing that.

    Deceived,

    Let me give you a little clue here. What I was referring to was NOT the church’s later catechism but the original intent of the term, as developed by a Jesuit priest in the 1840′s. The information you present on Solidarity was from the 1940′s, over a hundred years later. Secondly, the catechism mentions the term “solidarity” only in passing, because it expects the reader to actually know what the term means. From your previous ignorance, I can only assume you do not, so allow me to explain.

    The Catholic concept of Solidarity was originally outlined in Pope Leo XIII’s 1891 Rerum Novarum. The encyclical’s core point was the concept of free association between people, – in particular people who’s social network, shall we say, was less complicated or smaller than that of entities such as governments or corporations. There was also discussion of protecting the rights of workers fair wages and most strikingly, the most hardline defense of private property rights ever published in religious institutional writing. Pope Leo was very much aware of the power of socialist movements and wanted to make sure there was no confusion about his encyclical. Free association and private property are at the heart of it.

    Maybe you should just read it :
    http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/leo_xiii/encyclicals/documents/hf_l-xiii_enc_15051891_rerum-novarum_en.html

    Kind of changes things once you actually know what you’re talking about.

    Yes, that word “social justice” does have a progressive ring, doesn’t it.

    The truth is, that word is a very poor substitute for something Catholics should be practicing: Christian Charity. The literal Love of Christ. And, as a Catholic, I’d love to see people higher up in my church stop using inferior, secularized verbiage to cover the truth of what ultimately comes from and is blessed by God. If we could call a duck a duck here, there’d be a lot less confusion. With prayer it will happen.

    Lest, I’m also a fellow Catholic, but if you read up on the history of the term “Social Justice” you might find some surprising things. In a nutshell, the Catholic version of the term was coined by Fr Tagliatelli, a Jesuit priest in the 1840′s, which just happened to be right around Karl Marx’s manifesto publication came into being. It seems there were a lot of people interested in the order of man and how he should live, – perhaps a consequence of the age Industrialization that had just taken place,

    Anyway, the good Father’s work was not referring to economic conditions. It was a purely social treatise about how man should be able to interact with his fellow man (it later evolved into the Catholic concept of Solidarity, which states that no social structure of larger organization shall interfere with the workings of a smaller one.)

    Here’s the problem: several anti-Christian “thinkers” during that time, including Marx, were coming up with similar definitions of similar terms concurrently. In fact, it’s a little bit tricky to see who came first, -the Catholics or the non. It may not have been “co-opted” at all. I believe this murky origin is where the confusion comes in.

    Frankly, its a poor choice of words to describe something else that we Catholics should be practicing in it’s place: Christian Charity. This was even gently alluded to in Benedict’s encyclical Caritas in Veritate. No way to co-opt a term with the name of Christ at its head. No misunder

    You hit this on the head.

    Inequality will always be part of the human condition because scarcity is part of our fallen world. It’s the attitude we display towards it that determines whether or not we’re good or evil.

  • April 15, 2014 at 5:25pm

    Or hypocritical? :D

  • April 15, 2014 at 5:24pm

    Exactly, – the Left is “surprised.” The rest of us, not so much.

    He’s a secularist, to be precise, as are all communists. He may adhere to faith in some sort of deity, but his god is the state, as mediated by himself.

    So I guess the next question is, can narcissism be considered a religion?

  • April 15, 2014 at 2:19pm

    Demonic. NO other words.

  • April 15, 2014 at 2:14pm

    As Mother Teresa once said, “If you don’t want you babies, give them to me.”

    Twins are awesome. That mother is very blessed. :)

  • April 15, 2014 at 2:13pm

    I agree with you, but this “arrangement” may God’s doing as well. I’m of the opinion that with kids, you take what the Lord gives you, – even if it wasn’t exactly what you asked for. :)
