In the English language, a woman who acts can be called either an actor or an actress.
It has always been thus.
There’s nothing politically correct about the term “actor” when referring to a woman.

The difference between taxpayer dollars and campaign donations is that campaign funds are earned via a voluntary choice — and taxes are a federally mandated removal of your money from your wallet.
If Trump gave campaign dollars– which I doubt– then who should complain? The only person such a donation could negatively impact would be him. They were given to him.
Obama would be giving OUR money to LA and it would never have been his.

Good food is always at the perimeter of any store. Whole, unprocessed meats, vegetables, and fruit. It is the middle aisles that have all the processed foods.
And the distance to Wal-Mart was probably a good walking distance.

If you believe your religion was “no better” in the middle ages, then you are poorly educated.
Poorly educated about Christianity and about Islam.

Some of the scary “symptoms” you list seem to fit either a psychological …or “spiritual” malady.
I wouldn’t be surprised if she was psychotic or possessed.
If we see that stuff when she is in public, imagine what she is like in private?

I actually work daily with demented people. All stages and types from 60 to 100 years of age.
If I had to say which candidate shows signs of early-onset cognitive issues, it would be Hillary.
And her inability to get though so many speaking engagements without a coughing fit or loss of voice is something to consider.

AN INNOCENT WOMAN DIES A POINTLESS DEATH AND YOU MAKE A JOKE?
Considering all the BS posted daily…that surely was one of the crassest and coldest.

Your questions are all valid, but the answers are known to Christians who read and know their scriptures.
Your posts consistently reveal two things:
1. that you know very little about scripture and Christianity; and
2. that Christianity does seem to fascinate you……
……So why not dig in and actually learn about it?

You do understand…. that there have been generations of biblical scholars and theologians who have concurred on the Greek translations — and what context and subtext those words had in that time period, right?
You do understand….that theologians who studied the history of early Jewish culture and religion also understand perfectly what the words meant before they were translated — and again — what subtext and context they had in pre-Christian society. So, therefore an accurate Greek …or Latin …word could be found to create a good translation?
And therefore, English words could also be found?
The point is….It is not words, but truly understanding the ideas and theology behind the words that is the key!
That is why “Typology” is also a large part of how scholars can interpret so accurately, regardless of the translation. Symbols with specific meanings have been carried through thousands of years of OT-NT structure.
Look it up. Typology.

Hans…you are trying to be funny?
Poor dear…you tried to be humorous or …something.
Don’t be too embarrassed for your yourself.
We are embarrassed enough for you.

No one is responsible for your actions — except you….and no one man is THE CHURCH…not even the Pope…..
And quite frankly, with your attitude, maybe it is best that you DO leave. The Catholic Church needs people who understand their faith and can live by it…
God Bless You and keep you…wherever you go.

Socialism is “charity” by force. True charity- as a virtue- is giving of one’s own free will and consent. It is an act of loving one’s neighbor as oneself…Jesus asked that of us!!!
Socialism, however, is TAKING– and giving to others– without consent. Without virtue. Without free will.
What Francis is advocating, I don’t know…

Comparing gender with a crippled limb is as obtuse as it gets.
In order to understand an issue, you need the ability to think critically about what you “know.”
You betray your lack of critical thinking skills each and every time you post.

That is spot on, EOMSSO.

How right you are. This is not the first time the Church has had to face this situation.
We’ll get through this.
But I can’t help praying for the day we get another like JPII. He was ecumenical too, yet uncompromising in his expectations that we live as Christ expects.
 August 1, 2016 at 7:42am
I’m praying for Francis, but his words really are difficult to defend.
I can sit here all day and defend the doctrines of the Church — they are biblical and founded on the words and actions of Jesus Christ.
But I cannot defend a man — Pope or not — who denies history itself. Francis’ words confuse the faithful.

I am exhorted to pray for him, so I will. But he is a far cry from what my Church needs right now!
I used to think he was just a poor communicator, and that he had a poor grasp of how the media works…..and I was hopeful that he would get better with time
…………………..but now I just think he is lacking a good education in HISTORY! Thus poorly-suited for his vocation.
The Catholic Church has endured much worse than him, and we will get through this too.

I cannot express in words how frustrated and infuriated I am by this Pope.
Of course, there are Muslims in the world who are just as horrified by what is happening as we are ———-this is evident in the hundreds of Muslims standing in solidarity and attending Masses in France this week in sorrow for the slain priest.
HOWEVER……sane, well-educated people also understand that Islam ——- as conceived by Mohammed ——- IS a cult of world domination through any means necessary!!! The faith itself demands submission and conversion ,,,,,or death!
Pope Francis cannot make that untrue …no matter how he tries to phrase it.
