    Thanks Billy Hallowell,

    This is not the first story here on the Blaze about the TFP being assaulted on site when they are working.

    TFP stands for Tradition, Family and Property, and it is a devout Catholic organization that promotes prayer and family and is, of course, pro-life! Student Action on Campuses that actually promotes conservative Christian values….

    Support the TFP.

    Justice Man

    You are a bit confused. Anyone can forgive his neighbor. In fact, the forgiveness is important to the soul of the FORGIVER, not the forgiven.

    God help the person who does not forgive.

    Remember — God’s Will be done. It is God who exacts mercy and/or judgement..

    Thanks, Dudley.
    Good Example of Christian forgiveness. And God Bless this nun for her faithful devotion to the teaching and example of Christ Our Lord.

    Please try to remember that a belief in Sola Scriptura is not a Catholic doctrine.

    In fact, there is no mention in the Holy Bible of the idea of Sola Scriptura..not by Jesus, or anyone else!

    With all due respect,. that is a paradox, isn’t it?

    Have you heard of the early Church fathers? (1st and 2nd centuries A.D.) Look them up. They wrote about the earliest Christian services, practices and “tradition.”

    Some of them were taught by, or appointed by…the original apostles that Jesus himself chose! They were directly involved in the earliest Christian life. And they wrote BEFORE scripture was compiled into the Biblical Canon you follow today.
    …..and these guys mention “tradition” more than a few times.

    So, Brigott, …if Sola Scriptura is enough for you, that is great!
    The Catholic Church embraces more.

    A little advice: Belittling Catholic practice doesn’t help your argument much.
    God Bless.

    Captain,

    Purgation is “suffering in order to learn and grow spiritually.” The suffering of purgatory comes from the loss of access to God! In purgatory, one can no longer pray for oneself. In purgatory one can only pray for others. Although they are dead, those in purgatory cannot see, nor feel, nor hear God. THAT is how they suffer…… The suffering of knowing it may be a long time until they CAN be with God. It is a time of growing toward the Will of God — but without the graces we here on Earth are given, constantly, to do just that!

    To be clear: that is why Catholic theology embraces suffering – because sometimes we cannot depend on Jesus 100% when things are going well. We cannot learn to love perfectly if things are always perfect!

    Many times, human beings do not not grow spiritually without suffering. So, there is purgation while we are alive too.

    It is a very loving God who allows suffering. Purgatory is a loving doctrine.

    Oh and nice to see you too, Celeb! Thanks.

    Dear Flea,

    The problem with quoting scriptural passage to affirm a doctrine is that anyone can interpret scripture to suit any belief they want!

    It is not full proof.

    Also, Catholic theology is not taken as whole cloth FROM scriptural passages. Scriptural passages were chosen as part of the canon AFTER the church established.

    But I don’t require a scriptural passage to help me believe in the Church Universal, which consists of three parts: The Church Militant (that is us – we are soldiers for Christ!); The Church Triumphant (that is everyone in heaven!); and finally, The Church Suffering (we believe there are souls that GOD, in his infinity Love and Mercy, has kept from the fires of Hell, but cannot yet allow into heaven because they need to be purified and perfected first.

    Purgatory is a very loving doctrine. I am not asking that you believe in it.

    The theology behind purgatory does not have anything to do with the misconception that we somehow believe that, “Christ’s death was not sufficient enough.”
    Christ’s sacrifice was perfect.
    I have gone to the trouble of understanding the theology behind “Sola Scriptura,” which is what you believe in. I get why you believe what you believe, and I don’t disparage it.
    Maybe you could try and understand the theology behind purgatory???
    In any case, let’s be clear: THE Catholic Church teaches about purgatory. Your comment, ” Many Catholic Churches do not teach purgatory” is a comment that tells me all I need to know about your knowledge of the Catholic Church. To correct you: some PARISHES may be neglecting their duty or teaching in error. But the universal Catholic Church has not changed in any way regarding teaching on purgatory!
    God Bless!

    The problem with schools is that they reward kids who are good at science and math, and accelerated classes are always offered at the high school level for that. If a kid does not fit that mold, there is no place for them except clubs and elective courses to fulfill their interests and talents.

    And standardized tests have too great a place in the curriculum.

    jrrook,

    It is about getting past the idea that all suffering can or should be avoided. Or realizing that life is both joy and suffering, and that they both have gifts.

    IF Brittany truly is at peace with her decision…real peace, then no one posting here with an opinion will hurt her.

    AND if she wanted peace and privacy, why is she posing for magazine covers?

    A good example of a food that is almost universally grown as GMO is corn. Corn is genetically modified so that it can be sprayed with “Round Up” and not die, but all the weeds around the crop die.

    Genius, huh? Well,not so much. Since Round Up is a major endocrine system disrupter! Your endocrine system runs everything in your body in some way!

    Now think about how all commercially raised pigs, chickens and cows are fed corn and soy as a staple in their diet. Don’t get me started on how soy is in everything and is also mostly GMO.

    Let’s get back to corn: Corn is also genetically modified to resist pests, so that farmers can save on pesticides. When bugs eat the corn, they ingest what has been spliced genetically into the corn,,,,,, and their tiny stomachs explode. Literally, explode. Now, think about how many times a day you eat corn fed animal products, or have corn syrup in a product (even Ketchup!). YOU are ingesting that.

    And the genetically modified pollen and seed is blown into the wind, so that even non-GMO farmers end up with GMO plants on their land. Then, Monsanto sues them for stealing product! Yes, that has been done to American farmers!

    Monsanto makes Round Up by the way.

    A lot of the tomatoes grown are GMO. Think about how many products you eat that are made with them….Out of time, or I could go on.

    A good movie is also “Fathead.” Free on youtube. It gives solid facts about the need for healthy saturated fats in our diets, the history behind the phony “Lipid Hypothesis” that led to all this cholesterol hysteria, and the reasons why the wheat we eat today is so harmful to our systems.

    ME too.

    Jesus died on the Cross for the SINNERS.

    Those who are already saintly don’t need His mercy quite as much, do they?

    Conversion is a process. It is a daily, and sometimes a life-long process. His language and other not so perfect behavior may change in time.

    God will work in his heart if he really is surrendering control to Him. Give him a break.

    Forcing someone to bake you a wedding cake, when they’d rather not, is not a civil right.

    I do not want the “civil right” to walk into a bake shop and force the bakers to sign a contract with me.

    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….
