The Black SheepDog: Changes and Future-----------uploaded by irapuato

If I remember correctly, the investigating group for Fr.Marcial Maciel of the Legionaires of Christ suggest that there shouldn't be any attachment to the cult of personality (my paraphrasing here). The unfortunate thing is that history tends to repeat itself and people just don't seem to learn. Instead of focusing on the message, people are attracted to the personality. I guess we need to re-… More

The Black SheepDog: Changes and Future-----------uploaded by irapuato

Regardless of the support/condemnation he gets, I think it's unfair to compare him with Anton LaVey (who is a totally different matter). Whatever vested interests people have in this matter, people should really take a serious look in the mirror and consider a serious examination of conscience when they think (Fr) Corapi is comparable to LaVey. As always, I'll only continue to pray that the … More

John Corapi: Special Announcement. June 17, 2011

Rather than pussyfooting around Canon 1253, I'll stick to Canon 1251 - thank you very much!

John Corapi: Special Announcement. June 17, 2011

Can. 1251 "Abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays, unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday. Abstinence and fasting are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday."

I'm no canon lawyer but to me Canon 1251 is crystal clear.

However, Can. 1253 states "The conference of bishops can determine more precisely … More

ACL - Indeed, some "higher authorities" are problematic. The Church might as well scrapped the N.O. Mass for Christ's sake (no pun intended).

ACL - Then they should be reported to a higher authority. Do nothing and the whole 'dog's breakfast' saga never ends.

@ACL Maaaaate! Why wait when people can attend / demand the Old Mass, which (after much consideration) is uncompromising. As you've mentioned it "Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi".

Deo gratias, the kumbayah Mess (with an E) is cancelled but this ain't the end of such Novus Ordo nonsense.

Whitewash

WOW that's some retarded reasoning. I wonder where the authors of that study graduated from. Even someone with half a brain could tell that reasoning is flawed.

Why Switzerland Has THe Lowest Crime Rate In THe World.

"The Seventh United Nations Survey on Crime Trends and the Operations of Criminal Justice Systems (1998 - 2000)" www.unodc.org/…/7sc.pdf

The US has a 2.97% per 100000 inhabitants when it comes to homicides with a firearm in 1999. Switzerland has 1.01% in 1999 and 0.53% in 2000. Singapore, which has zero tolerance, has none in 1999 and 0.2% in 2000.

So Switzerland has the lowest in the world? … More

Why Switzerland Has THe Lowest Crime Rate In THe World.

It is rather amateurish/simplistic to suggest that because most Swiss have guns therefore they have the lowest crime rate in the world. Correlation does not equate to causation. Furthermore, this correlation could also be illusory correlation, meaning there might be a statistical significance but it doesn't mean any thing at all. What would explain gun violence in the US and Canada?
