My faith doesn’t make me perfect, it makes me forgiven.

Church endorsing the raping of kids thing is what ten years ago? It's the same as blaming Bush every othe thread. You guys need a new line.....
says the guy who just posts "ROFL LOONS" whenever he doesnt like something.
also, why are republicans obsessed with mentioning how obama inherited a bad situation?

I mean, nobody wants to admit they ate nine cans of ravioli, but I did, and I'm ashamed of myself.
Back in the day (1957) when Britain was moving towards gay rights, the report mentioned that the governments job was to legislate crime, not morality
If China or Germany or Russia was actively trying to get involved in the US legislative process many people would be angry but when the Vatican does it's looked at as just fine.
I don't get it.
So the Pope gave this pedophile a knighthood and we should be taking advice from them.
Jimmy Savile: Catholic Church bid to remove papal knighthood
Jimmy Savile Savile presented BBC shows including Top of the Pops and Jim'll Fix It
The papal knighthood given to Jimmy Savile "should not have been bestowed", a Vatican spokesman has told the BBC.
The Catholic Church in England and Wales confirmed it has written to the Holy See to ask if the honour can be posthumously removed.
The Archbishop of Westminster, the Most Reverend Vincent Nichols, called for an investigation, recognising the "deep distress" of Savile's alleged victims.
Savile, who may have abused some 300 people, was granted the award in 1990.
Meanwhile, a statement released by Savile's nephew, Roger Foster, described the family's "despair and sadness" over the revelations, adding "our feelings are in turmoil as we await the next turn of events"
The arguments about biblical evidence and Chuch endorsed pedophilia may highlight a sense of hypocrisy, however they're really false equivalencies and take away from the real problem here.
The real problem is the value judgment about homosexuality.
even more so... rationalizing that judgment away with a "learn to love in spite of" meme is nothing more than self-righteous condescending drivel.
its that kind of nonsense that leads people to believe that homos can be loved back to health.
again.. The problem is the judgment and there is no REASON to affirm that judgment.
I'm surprised that the Latinos are as accepting as they are, because of the machismo culture and the Catholic influence.
