Oct 29th 2009 9:22AM There is still a BIG difference from going to see a Passion Play and going to a Theme Park.... they have crossed the line asking for tax exemption. And this could lead others to justifying their "religion" having a theme park.
Just think of what California can pop out???
Kool Aid hall of fame? you get the point. Let them be...sure...tax exempt? NO
Oct 2nd 2009 4:59PM Dear Ignorant people,
the Church's stance on celibacy models Jesus who was celibate,regardless of Dan Brown's fantasy. SO take up your issues with celibacy with God. As far as the money angle...the catholic Church averages 2% of people's incomes vs 8-10% in the protestant Churches.... so do the math, who is getting rich???? there is so much ignorance in the comments on this board, you could fill up a library with the lack of understanding, except libraries are where smart people go....
Oct 2nd 2009 4:53PM I am not condemning this man to hell or heaven, but he has made several mistakes. For those who criticize celibacy, think about the professional codde that exists with all counselors (you never sleep with the person you are counseling, lest you lose your license) - the modern world accepts this rule. Celibacy is an effort to protect the couselee, body and soul
Well, father- I'm-too-gorgeous-to-keep-it-in-my-pants overstepped here big time...and the Church gave him a 2nd chance, but he chose to leave...the way it seems...he just keeps choosing what is easy...easy vulnerable women, dropping his vows (which thus makes his word worthless), and not working at growing into an authentic person who lives up to his promises even when things get hard. better luck with the Epsicopals
FYI, divorce rate for priests who leave to get married is in the 70% range, so I hope she was worth it...
Oct 2nd 2009 4:34PM El autor de este articulo no escribe la verdad.
El Arcodiocesis no forzo el Padre para ir a la iglesia Episcopal, El padre decidio para romper su votas y su palabra de mantener la vida celibe...
para representar la iglesia como el pecador cuando le dio a padre su segundo oportunidad no es responsable. El sacerdote sabia las reglas cuando estaba ordinado y las acepto...
pero el mundo solo vea un hombre guapo por afuera y no adentro (donde esta su pecado)
Sep 29th 2009 5:08AM Dear Freedom lovers,
The original article fails to mention Venezuela is only one of several countries to ban this style of show. I lived in Ecuador when it banned the Simpsons. Not everyone has our sense of values, some countries actually value that their children be respectful to adults...I do not see that as a bad thing.
The rooms' comments about "you must be a southerner, Jesus-freak, or a prude show your total lack of education about the powerful influence tv has had/can have on the watchers, especially youth. I'll be the first to admit I have watched Family guy/Siumpsons, but humor doesn't make prejudice right and in time humor confirms people in their racism/prejudices. Some peoplein this world see there are deeper values worth more than absolute freedom to offend every living creature, like protecting traditional values. Freedom is not even absolute even in our country (.ie nudity, violence, and cursing) but if you like that our youth are getting more violent and disrepectful, stayed tuned to your boob tube. and no I am not so simple-mined to think that TV is the sole culprit, but it is a part and if your are protecting values where families/societies protect their children from learning to be disrespectful to their parents/adults/authority under the guise of humor, then you will understand why other countries (even misguided maniacs like Chavez) have made a profound start of a healthier world. I've taught youth for 10 years in the US and abroad and see the exponential growing lack of respect they have for others and I know it comes from many places, one of which has been tv, and for that reason, I get why others want to limit shows that deeply offend and can give up a couple of cheap laughs in hopes of a better world.
