Lucia, that is not how you pronounce the word 'dove' in English. I have many Ukrainian and Polish friends who make the same mistake. Thank you for the news!

These people in Niger are obviously brainwashed. They are burning churches because of the Charlie Hebdo magazine... what does a church have anything to do with an atheistic magazine that attacks Islam? Why would you burn churches because an anti-religious French magazine attacked Muhammad? The Christians in the West are doing nothing to cause this; it is their own stupidity that is causing this.
If a western magazine or media source were to publicly attack God and mock the idea of Him, Muslims … [More]

Russia is a country with widespread abortion, prostitution, drug use, street violence, corruption.... how can anyone think that fighting for its national aspirations is fighting for Jesus?

I have lived in Beijing for years and I think this is the most ruthlessly capitalistic place I have ever been to in my life. The gap between the rich and the poor is far more pronounced than it is in the West.
Just a few hours ago I walked past an extremely wealthy school owned by a corporation in Abu Dhabi that gives very expensive and high quality education for the richer Chinese who control the government. Along the same street, a little further down, there is a line of poor people in dusty … [More]

1 Samuel 24:

The Orange Lodge and the Free Masons are two different organizations. Where does the title come from?
The first bishop of Upper Canada in the 19th century. Alexander MacDonell, was a Scottish catholic who was a loyalist to the British crown and allied himself with the Orange lodge against Irish republicanism when he was bishop. When he was only a priest and still in Scotland he helped form a group of loyalist catholics to fight for the crown against the rebels in the 1798 uprising alongside … [More]

(a person in China asked me to put this on the internet for him; it has no relation to the catholic church, however, it is just his account of being kidnapped... I don't know if it is true or not)

Pius XII in his 1943 encyclical Mystici Corporis Christi
"13. If we would define and describe this true Church of Jesus Christ - which is the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic and Roman Church [12] - we shall find nothing more noble, more sublime, or more divine than the expression "the Mystical Body of Christ" - an expression which springs from and is, as it were, the fair flowering of the repeated teaching of the Sacred Scriptures and the Holy Fathers.
14. That the Church is a body is frequently… [More]

There are 1.2 million child prostitutes under the age of 12 in the world. Tourists from Germany go to Thailand or other places in SE Asia every year to have sex with kids with the consent of negligent governments.
I could be wrong, but I don't think they put any sanctions on those countries for allowing this. But if Thailand or one of those countries were to put a ban on men having sex with men, they would be sanctioned perhaps.

The Pope in the time of St Francis (Innocent III) ordered a crusade against the Albigensian heresy in southern France, which killed tens of thousands of people, including many civilians.

What right do active gays have in judging or condemning those practice incest? Who are they to judge?...The existence of natural law written on the human heart is proven by the fact that human beings condemn people for doing the same sorts of things that they themselves practice.
There is nothing wrong with two men or two women falling in love with each other and wanting to spend their time together- but sex should just not be part of it.

The Chinese traditionally burn money to give to their dead ancestors, and they fear that if they don't do this then their ancestors will come back and harm them. Matteo Ricci told Catholic converts in Beijing that they could burn the money so long as they didn't treat the ancestors as gods. This sort of thing was where the opposition to him understandably came from.

Rhemes: For my part, I just want to make one more thing clear: I say we shouldn't attack them because of their position, and not because I think they are innocent. I am not blind to abuses nor do I think everything the pope or bishop does is right... my entire point is that there is a wrong method and a right method with dealing with it, and as far as I understand the teaching of the church and the example of the saints, this is not the correct method. The problems of the church are overcome … [More]

As naïve or foolish I may be, I still know what the Truth of the matter is. Call me anything you like, the Truth will still be the same.
In terms of the time period: If St Paul considered it wrong to speak against the Jewish High Priest, who was not mistakenly allowing abortion pills, but who was actively leading a persecution to destroy the church and anyone who believed in Jesus... if it was wrong then to speak against him because of his authority, how could it be right today to do so … [More]
