    Brotherhood,

    Yeah, the Gospel is only read at each and every Mass, every day, all over the world, in every language.

    His Gospel is at the center of our faith.

    Personally, I know scripture well. I can’t speak for all Catholics, but even those people who never open their own bible will eventually hear the entire thing read to them at Mass.

    Seeing is believing. When you encounter true evil, you know it.

    The Catholic Church always says, “Love the sinner, not the sin.” Homosexuals are God’s children and should loved and cared for as such.

    It is active homosexuality as a lifestyle that is not accepted by the Church.

    Lost-Soul,

    I was thinking the same thing.

    $120,000 to dig up movie sets?? I LOVE movie trivia and history, but really….

    As all the devout Catholics on this site have been saying….The Church does not try and change the truth of the Gospel. It abides by it.

    Another really good book by an atheist intellectual who finds the truth is “Something Other than God” by Jennifer Fulwiler. She is funny, very bright, and grounded in real life.

    The media can speculate all they want, but doctrine based on the Gospel will always be true.

    Pope Francis is not wrong, however, when he says of himself, “who am I to judge?” Pope Francis knows full well he is not the Judge.

    A professional editor gets PAID to read and proof copy, not only for content, but for grammar and spelling.
    The writers are also getting paid to be professional. It is not as if they are dashing off the stories in between their regular gig at McDonald’s.

    But it was kind of you, Monk, to try to excuse this latest editorial mish- mash.

    The fear will keep people from going to work. Especially those workers (truck drivers, etc.) who cross state borders.

    If real panic happens, don’t worry about Ebola, you will have to worry that food will not get to you local grocery store, and gas will not get delivered to your local gas station. Your daily meds will not get delivered to your local pharmacy. Your local power and water company employees will hunker down at home, if a local case of Ebola shows up.

    Then there will be the parasitic local population who will TAKE what they can get from others if they have been without for a few days.

    It is not the disease that will be your first challenge. It will be infrastructure breakdown.

    If you read the article carefully, you understand that, ” Love the sinner, not the sin” is already what we are doing.

    This is a non-news story.

    As far as “accepting the gifts” of homosexuals….many parishes and Catholic schools do employ gay people or have them as ministry volunteers. They are just not openly or militantly gay.

    But what about my sibling who lives with her same sex partner but does not practice her faith??? Her child is still getting all her catechism classes, sacraments, etc. And my sibling, when she sometimes goes to Mass, is not denied anything. ….. Because the priest cannot know the state of her soul at the moment she goes to Communion. It is not up to him.

    It is up to my sibling to (I pray someday) decide to love Our Lord Jesus enough to live her life for Him. Until then, the Church has been, and will be, open to her “gifts.”

    I understand that Brittany is using this plan as a means to get SOME control in her life because it appears that all control has been taken from her.

    But I do pray fervently that she does not take her own life. I pray that she allows God’s will to be done and lives as long as He sees fit!

    Nilsson,

    God only created Good. The rebellion that came from free will used without love is what created evil, sickness, and death.

    But God is in the game for the long haul. Eternity is a whole different perspective, and sometimes cancer is not the worst fate a soul can encounter! God, in his infinite love and mercy, constantly gives us the best opportunities for our eternal souls.

    Sometimes adversity is what is best for the growth of a soul. He ALLOWS it. What you do with it with His gift of Free Will is up to you!

    Where ever did we get the idea that life should be without suffering, without pain?? We accept the joy and the fun and the ease when it comes, but reject the difficult times as part of our life??

    That makes no sense.

    I could continue and talk about why it is not Brittany Maynard’s will that needs to be done…. But that Judeo Christian mindset is apparently “ignorant and narrow minded.”

    People can love her enough to tell her she is making a huge mistake though. Where ever did we get the idea that life should be without suffering, without pain?? We accept the joy and the fun and the ease when it comes, but reject the difficult times??

    That makes no sense.

    This is about God. He created her. It is up to Him to receive her when He decides.

    Matt is a wonderful writer and his commentary sure is well written and IS a cut above. Matt is a guy who is fighting against the culture of death.

    Way to go Matt!

    thanks for the chuckle and smile…

    The most sickening thing about her is that she actually compares herself with other single working moms!

    Dense is an adjective that would have to be multiplied 5000 times to even begin to describe her.

    Isn’t her family embarrassed by her yet?

    Moondogg,

    Remember the words in Our Lord’s Prayer, given to us by Christ: “Thy Will Be Done.”

    As a devout Catholic, I am prepared to allow God to take me when He is damn good and ready. He gave me Free Will, but I believe that I am to desire to His Will!!

    If His Will is that I stay a bit longer than is comfortable (suffering or not), then that is what I want!! I desire to do His Will in all things. Being that He is the omnipresent,Omnicient All Good, All Perfect….HE just might have his reasons…………..just sayin’…..

    The only time I think it is OK to be an active part of your own death is when you are giving your life for another. Then it is up to God to decide whether you survive that sacrifice or not.

    “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

    See, a Catholic and I actually AM familiar the the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ! Will miracles never cease. Sarcasm off
