I find it funny that the article doesn’t mention the fact that the current Col. Sanders, Jim Gaffigan, was in the interview in the video. Seems like something worth noting.

To you and I, these terms are equivalent. My point was that the stats were associated with specific things that the author of said study evidently defined for his purposes. What would be interesting is to see the overall statistics combined. It all reminds me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4DNbjIVDhA

After reading what I posted, I’m pretty pleased that I refrained from identifying the race of said assailant.
Or perhaps I should be worried that I can think like a liberal so well…

T17 – I appreciate your response. I would point out that the last paragraph of your original post is really the only portion of your comment that DIRECTLY addresses the Pope’s statement. The rest is an argument you were just waiting to make when you read a story about Catholicism. Time to reload a new one for the next story.
That being the case, the rest of your comments about the 10 commandments are taken as coercion to follow what you specifically believe. Their sole purpose is to point out how wrong my Church is and how correct your Church is. So you’ve tried to do exactly what you’re admitting is harmful.
And to be honest, the Protestant Reformation didn’t occur chronologically until after much of the Catholic “persecution”, as you put it, was over. So your denomination extends from the same roots. The fact that you even bring this up makes it abundantly clear that you have a psychological malady which causes you to hate Catholics because you or your forebears are victims. You’re like a black person decrying the slavery endured by your great-great-great grandfather and seeking reparations.
Here you go: I’m sorry my faith makes you hate me. Now, off to MASS where I’ll eat the BODY OF CHRIST and ask for the intercession of MARY.

I’m now channeling the power and force of conniving liberals. Okay here I go:
Our top story tonight: a Telemundo reporter was viciously attacked by another woman during a live broadcast in Philadelphia last night. We haven’t been provided with any information from the local prosecutor as to the reason for the attacker’s actions, but the current fringe movement against illegal immigration and the desire to build a wall along the US-Mexico border, led by real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his supporters, is suspected as a cause for her violent actions against the Spanish-speaking reporter.
There – now you and Donald Trump are to blame. You’re welcome.

You should have grave concerns about lib thinking. Perhaps a shower with plenty of soap and a good scrub. That should remove the ickyness on the outside. Then a John Wayne movie to cleanse the inside. Big Jake is my personal favorite.
Take your brain out and shake it. Then go watch at least 30 minutes of Bill Whittle.

Isn’t that what we just saw?

There are two different statistics: 1) “sexually abused” and 2) “sexually assaulted”.
Both are the same and they use two different words for two different age groups.
Minors verse adults… it’s a legal wording thingy.
There's 'Child abuse' but not 'adult abuse' until it comes to the elderly and then there's both.

jamesIII, if you feel it necessary to argue about which day of the week is the 6th or 7th and what words to keep in the commandments and where to cut it off so they’re easier to memorize, then go ahead because I’m not going to waste my time. You all “feel” very strongly about it.
There was no “feeling” to my comments at all – just because you say it is plainly so doesn’t make it true. Yes, there are some factually correct statements in T17′s post (obviously), but the conclusions are clearly biased by someone who doesn’t like Catholics or at least Catholic doctrine. That is the part that T17 is making up as are you and many other people who have espoused Christian denominations who hate the Catholic church.
I’ll repeat my point: why waste your time fighting with someone who either doesn’t want to fight you or doesn’t intend you harm? This is one of the many problems with our culture today – we all want to place ourselves in contradiction to a “side” and hurl arguments at each other. It’s destructive. Please consider this point instead of thinking up a comeback. I’m not looking to argue, I’m looking to point out what a waste of time this is. If you want to spend your days determining what exactly is meant by each scripture passage, you’re going to miss out on a lot of opportunity to have a fulfilled life….and likely be wrong a good portion of the time (as would all of us).

Where did it say that she hated Trump? She implied her agreement that we need to make American great again – she just disagreed with the notion that the construction of a wall between the US and Mexico should be part of that process.
(Note: I’m just interpreting what I heard and read – these are NOT my personal opinions because I actually DO hate Trump.)

I’ve always wondered if it was fun making stuff up, or just tiring. Because I get tired when I read stuff like this. I’m sure you “feel” strongly about it and it was thoroughly explained to you by a Catholic-bashing, devout Christian, but it’s just made up and hateful. There is no reason to hate the beliefs of another religion unless those beliefs are hurtful (see Islam). If you do, you become just like those religions that preach hate for others.
In summary, why do you care so much? Does anything in Catholic doctrine hurt you, or do you just want to vilify something/someone?
Debating the subtle nuances of scripture is like ******* into the wind – just turn the other way and the outcome of your intent will be enhanced. In case you don’t get that analogy: if instead of arguing (******* into the wind) we studied the scripture together in a constructive manner, we could increase of value of all Christian faiths (our stream of pee would go out farther and not get on our pants and/or shoes).

I told my sense of humor that your post was in poor taste. It didn’t care – I laughed anyway.

Because it’s the only role she’s ever played where no makeup was required.
