Gloria TV News on the 14th of October

@louella, though I agree that more should be done for persecuted Christians ... I think that blaming the Vatican is missing the real target ... what are Catholic politicians doing all over the world? US Vice President Biden is a Catholic ... any words demanding his co-religionists security? German Chancellor Merkl is the daughter of a Lutheran Pastor. Has she uttered a word to ensure the welfare of fellow Christians? It is too easy to blame the Vatican ... but it is the laity that should take up the battle.

Obama’s Christian Problem

@louella ... yes, there should be a modern day "Catholic League" ... but, unfortunately, that is only a dream. If the Popular Party comes back to power in Spain and if Italy's centre-right government can rid itseld of that reprobate Berlusconi and get a true Catholic [in private actions as well as public words and deeds] ... well there might be a chance. Despite all his personal scandals, Berlusconi's Government did fight, and win, to retain the Cross in all public places.

A Long View of Vatican II

@tbswv - as Catholics we are not free to pick and choose from Ecumenical Councils what we like and dismiss and disparage what we don't like. Catholicism isn't a "smorgasbord" ... unfortunately or fortunately. The Second Vatican Council was the 21st Ecumenical Council of the Catholic Church. Whether we like it or not, that is a fact ... and as you say this Council is "valid". As such one must accept all its decisions. If one does not accept that the 2nd Vatican Council is Ecumenical then one … [More]

"If I had a hammer..."

Thank you "Ira" ... that DEFINITELY closes the matter. Upon seeing the video, and "mis-interpreting" it, I too had been worried that some "disrespect" had occurred. Your posting completely reassures me. Thank you so much!

Obama’s Christian Problem

Sorry everyone, I've been trying to post a cutting from a newspaper but I am NOT computer savvy enough to do so!
Anyway, the article was about "Amnesty International" wanting the Canadian Government to arrest George Bush "for authorising torture as he directed the US-led war on terror", when he attends an economic summit in Surrey, British Columbia, next Thursday.
This reminds me of those "nuts" who were clamouring for the arrest of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI when he made a Pastoral visit … [More]

While We Wait -- Some Level-Setting ...

Hi SBpfu  !!!
Well said!
There are two things that I don't understand about all this. Firstly, why all the fuss about a miniscule splinter group? I'm sure the Holy Father has far more important and pressing things than to be waiting by the phone for a call from bishop Fellay and his ilk. From how some people talk, however, it sounds like a case of "the tail wagging the dog"! Secondly, what has happened to the fervent Christian hope that should animate us as … [More]

The Priest and His Donkey

Far better jokes, funnier and in much better taste, have been posted on this site. Quite frankly, I'd expect this kind of joke on a fundamentalist Protestant [I can't even imagine mainline Anglicans/Episcopalians or Lutherans doing so] or an Islamic site.

Vatican’s Pact with Islam

Hi Trinitas!!!
Actually, it was the great Catholic Anglo-French writer Hilaire Belloc [1870-1953] who counted Islam as a Christian heresy [as well as a threat to the West] in his book, aptly named, "The Great Christian Heresies".
The following website has further information on this:

Vatican’s Pact with Islam

My dear friend Trinitas, I am not sure where you got that [partial] quote supposedly attributable to St Thomas Aquinas regarding Islam. If you go to this website:
www.catholicapologetics.info/.../thomas.htm
you will see that St Thomas Aquinas did not believe that Mohammed was a true prophet and he cogently argued against the Moslem objections to the Blessed Trinity and the Incarnation. Nowhere, however did he say anything about Moslems not worshipping the same God as the Christians.

While We Wait -- Some Level-Setting ...

You state that "the Pope was flat out, and loudly, wrong". You talk of "silliness within the Catholic Church". You refer to actions of a Supreme pontiff of the Universal Church [Pope Paul VI] as "unjust and illegal" and as "nutty-novel". You attack Religious Orders with whom you disagree as "malign and mephitic" [the latter, presumably, a reference to Mephistopheles, a demon] and to their actions as stinking "like the bottom of a monkey cage". You say that you have "excommunicated" yourself … [More]

As you you say, the SSPX has been the carrier of many lights. So was "Lucifer". His sin and that of the Lefebvrists has also been the same: "Non serviam".
