Priest Offers Golf Cart “Confessions On-The-Go” on College Campus

Goodness! Just look at that long line of guilty, shame-faced Catholics impatiently waiting to unburden their souls. :p Clearly this golf-cart confessional idea addresses a real need on campus. Personally, I think Father just wanted an excuse to a.) buy a cart with parish money. b.) drive around ostensibly doing his "ministry".

Goodness! Just look at that long line of guilty, shame-faced Catholics impatiently waiting to unburden their souls. :p Clearly this golf-cart confessional idea addresses a real need on campus. Personally, I think Father just wanted an excuse to a.) buy a cart with parish money. b.) drive around ostensibly doing his "ministry". Understandable since golf-carts are loads of fun even if you're not playing golf. In practice, it's a horrid idea. A student commits a mortal sin, with God's Grace feels the urge to go to confession. And where is Father? Not at the campus chapel. He's off joy-riding around the campus. Good luck trying to track him down.

Francis Hails “Spirit of Assisi”, Calls Abu Dhabi Heresy “Important Step”

What's Behind the Amazon Synod: Apostasy?

Seriously, no kidding around Jim Dorchak ? Prayer's a great start, especially the Rosary. Aside from that, there's passive action and active. Passive is easy. Make sure you know which charity you're donating to. Make sure your donations even to a specific parish are going to pay for parish costs and not some diocesan slush fund.

Actively, make sure your own house is in order, spiritually speaking. Staying in a state of grace as best you're able even if that means you're doing penance on a frequent basis. ;-), regularly receiving the Eucharist, giving charity to the (truly) poor and (genuinely) needy. First Saturday and First Friday devotions, do 'em again even if you did them already. You get the idea.

Beyond that, there are traditionalist groups out there like the FSSP that still (somehow) manage to a.) stay true to The Church and b.) true to Christ. You don't have to go it alone. There are still "good bishops" and "good priests" who guide their flocks wisely. Seek them out, follow their counsel. It's what God called them to do, it's why God called them..

That way, if you're on the wrong side of Ground Zero when that last terrible "secret" of Fatima hits, you'll be on the right side of God. You'll stand before The Almighty with the Blessed Mother herself by your side, pleading on your behalf. He will look you over briefly and say (something like) "Don't worry Jim. everything going on down there was totally not your fault. Yeah, yeah... you're in. NEXT!"

Getting to the point where any of us have a solid, better than average chance of that happening for certain is a tall enough order as it is.

That isn't a "fallacy fantasy", either. It's put up or shut up. :D Knowing you, you'll do neither. ;-) I'm really beginning to understand why people on GTV sneer at the "Latin Americans". You're supposed to be Ph.D? A lawyer, no less? Get out. :p

My theory is you started as a lawyer, couldn't make a living because you lost your cases and decided teaching at a university was easier and safer.

What you call a "fallacy fantasy" was known to the Greek scholars and later Christian theologians by the term "reason". It's a mode of discourse you can not perform.

Probably because it requires more thought than repeating slanderous, anti-semitic conspiracy theories. It also requires a little more than "AND A HUGE ETC., and there you go."

And there you go. :D

"Such a lame excuses to avoiding accept an utter defeat."

You must be the joke of every faculty meeting. :D

"you use an analogy, that's unacceptable, because only the total and direct proof is valuable as evidence or argument".

...that's a straw-man fallacy because I did not present that argument. I have pointed out the contradiction you made several times now. You did not, can not, and will not refute it. You did not even defend your own "evidence", i.e Voegelin's study on gnosticism when I challenged it.

Analogies show one thing is similar to another in a certain way. They do not show one thing is the other. When you say Pope Francis is a Marxist, that is easy to prove. When you say Pope Francis is a Kabbalist, that contradicts being a Marxist. You also have not shown any evidence he is a Kabbalist, regardless of Marxism or not.

When you make a claim you should provide provide proof, not an analogy.

"it's pretty tiresome to watch resort to this kind of pseudo-arguments, used to avoid engaging in real arguments."

...there is no worse hypocrisy than a man hiding his own failings by accusing others of them.

When I engage in a real argument you whine about "bothering others with your last logic class on fallacies". I know why. So do you. That kind of argument you can not do. It was the foundation of Greek and (later) Christian philosophy. You aren't clever enough to argue like that. Your Ph.D in Philosophy isn't worth the paper it was written on.

..."and you say analogies are illegitimate."

...something I never did. Another straw-man fallacy.

But this is an easy thing for you to prove. Quote me. Directly. Word for word. Not "you said and (I think) that means", not "what you implied (but did not say)", not "I defeated you again etc. "., not "I am too busy to find it." You made the claim. I say your claim is false. Now prove it with a quote,

There. Now you have a real argument, even one simple enough for you.

...argumentum ad hominem, argumentum ad populam.

Knowledge presupposes evidence and a linear chain of reasoning employin said evidence i.e. proof, which is what you can not provide. Belief requires no proof whatsoever..

What you -have- provided is a cut-and-paste from last night filled with a great deal of "name dropping". Your actual evidence is quoted here verbatim

a.) "It comes from Voegelin's study on gnosticism, in which all these movements converge.

...and readily disproven by the increasingly confrontational political structure within every modern Western nation. Even more true within religious movements, Christianity included. They do NOT "converge". We don't agree with the Lutherans.. Even among Catholics, we're increasingly drifting away from the Novus Ordo.

b.) "AND A HUGE ETC., and there you go.".

*points at the chalk-board* There you go. :D

I can tell you one thing for certain. None of your students respect you. Es verdad. The clever ones learn very quickly to say what you want to hear. The honest ones try to argue and get bad grades.

But they both understand they are being taught by a donkey. The clever student gives the donkey a carrot and the donkey follows him. The honest student argues with the donkey but it stays stubborn and kicks him. But both students know it's a donkey and neither of them respect it.

LOL. Check out the quotation. From Francis Or Freemason?

"The problem is your blindness and your ignorance;" --oh the irony, the irony. :D Truly. Your problem is you fefuse to recognize the contradiction in your claim and so, in your mind it does not exist.

...this is also why you will not discuss "the problem" of your claim. A Marxist is an atheist. Marx himself was an atheist. An atheist does not believe in religion of any kind. A kabbalist does believe in religion, specifically the Jewish religion, and a specific set of teachings within the Jewish religion. A man can not be both at the same time.

This returns to what you said earlier. "as always, the problem is in the eye of the beholder.". In your case, you refuse to acknowledge the problem. But the problem still exists, whether you recognize it or not.

While it's fairly evident Pope Francis has Marxist sympathies, Marx himself was a Materialist and an atheist which precludes him from being a "kabbalist" either.. If a man disbelieves in all religions, then it's a given he also disbelieves in a sect connected with one in particular.

Additionally, Dr Bobus stated your insults were "predictably boring" which, in point of fact, they are. Nowhere in his comment did he ever allege the insults were untrue. He was discussing the qualities of the insults (i.e." predictably boring"), not their accuracy.
