mccallansteve: how do you know? Did you speak to God?

Welcome to the Church of Vatican II. This is encouraged and applauded. However, to God, it is odious.

I'll ask since you seem to be sharing the official word of God. Where does God say He hates dancing? I'm askin' since Pslam 149 says, “Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre. For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with victory.”

I know, Pope Pius XI condemned all dances, claiming "The limits imposed by modesty are exceeded, …More

I know, Pope Pius XI condemned all dances, claiming "The limits imposed by modesty are exceeded, especially in fashions and dances". But he was discussing immodesty as much as anythiing else and these people certainly seem modest, their dance certainly isn't suggestive... just silly.

Many dancers look silly, especially amateur "line" dancers. But that's a big dance-step away from being unlawful or contrary to Scripture and being odious to God.

Anyway, I'm biased and I should point that out for transparency's sake. Hardstyle (appropriately named) puts this to shame in terms of speed, timing, and rhythm.

I don't talk about myself all that much on GTV, (for obvious reasons) but my dream of Heaven is a late 90s rave with rivers of Red Bull, mountains of MDMA, my pulse hammering at the same BPM as the songs and DJ Gabriel on the decks.

I hope... I dream that Heaven sounds sounds like this .... only better. Imagine the set list and OC created by an Archangel illuminated by God's own Grace, the ONLY angel in all the universe He entrusted with the Annunciation..

They call this dance? This is better (although it looks like a Zumba exercise program) than shoving this garbage somewhere in the middle of the liturgy.

If the comments section in there is any indication, your recollections of the "good old days" on GTV are much softened by the passage of time. Sheesh... what a bunch of killjoys.

In the ‘old days’ there were a greater number of “normals” who posted regularly at Gloria.

Currently there is little to no moderation. The result is that the nuts have taken control of the asylum making post after post after post usually attempting to gather hits for their own stupid articles or, lacking meaning in their own lives, are trolling for attention.

Currently there is little to no moderation. The result is that the nuts have taken control of the asylum making post after post after post usually attempting to gather hits for their own stupid articles or, lacking meaning in their own lives, are trolling for attention. A classic example of this kind of immature - ridiculous behavior is even occurring this morning. In a word, they are ANNOYING.

Former members will not put up with this nonsense and have either left the site entirely or simply don’t post. I seldom post.

Wait till you see Gloria’s current crop of whackadoodles go bananas tomorrow when I put up a couple of Halloween vids. As a generalization, Catholics do NOT have a sense of humor. The mention of Halloween and these types begin to visualize the devil lurking behind every bush and possibly hiding under their beds. They will frantically thumb through their “Latin for Dummies” handbook and hurl invectives like "Vade retro me Satana" at me. I have my own invectives that I hurl back but this is a family site so I’ll leave those sayings to your imagination.

Little 7-year-old girls coming to my door dressed like angels or 10-year-old boys dressed as pirates do not bring to mind the devil or any other sick thoughts other than my own fond memories of my mother dressing me up like a fat old woman and me then going around asking neighbors for candy on Halloween - a holiday of fun. 😊
