German-speaking theology professors criticize Vatican ‘no’ to same-sex blessings

I just don't get it. What part of "mortal sin" do these intellectards think they can reason away?

Nothing else Matters

I can't read a doggoned word of these comments, but I've always kind of liked Metallica. Probably not a good choice for a life's philosophy, though.

Armed Security Guards Throw Faithful Out Of Mass

The difference comes from the dictionary. According to mine, "dress" in the context of a "dress code" pertains to clothing. I find it absurd that one would consider a protective mask "clothing".

While you're thumbing through your dictionary for "clothing" in order to author another pointless retort, stop by the "H's" for "humility".

How extreme porn has become a gateway drug into child abuse

I know several young Amish men and women personally. As with everything, there are extreme examples, but for most Pennsylvania Amish, "Rumspringa" is a non-event: they ignore it altogether.

How extreme porn has become a gateway drug into child abuse

For what it's worth, this is one area where the Amish community shines. There is no form of "internet" whatsoever in their homes, and possession of a "smart phone" makes them subject to excommunication, and, unlike our excommunication, that means they lose all contact with most of their family, most or all of their friends, and most of their business associates.

The Amish, by-and-large, follow God's commands concerning sex and sexuality assiduously, and God blesses them with fruitful marriage unions, wonderful families, and holdings of extensive, fruitful land.

They, so sadly, lack the Blessed Sacraments and Sacred Tradition, but God so clearly stands by His word by blessing those who follow His commands.

“Police State”: Irish Priests Threatened With Jail

"Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court justice and champion of women's rights, has died at 87

I think that is unlikely. As I understand it, those who retain original sin but are free of actual sin are in the limbo of the innocents (a supposition which is not dogma, by the way).

I'm thinking it's likely she is wishing she had had the chance to meet aborted babies!

China forces birth control on Uighurs to suppress population

If a demand for autonomy were the motivation of the Chinese government in repressing the Uighurs, would not the Tibetans be treated the same way? The obvious difference is the brutal and bloody violence inflicted by the Uighurs, not their demand for autonomy.

Your point is that the consecration has occurred.

My point is that the empirical results clearly demonstrate that the promises of effecting the consecration haven't happened, quite the opposite has happened. If, then, the consecration had happened, then someone has lied, because the effects of said consecration have been entirely forestalled.
