The Pope Hates Potter - Both of Them
This month a court in Burlington, Kentucky issued the largest settlement to date against the Catholic Church in the "Priestofeelya" scandal.
Judge John Potter ruled in favor of the victims against the church to the tune of $120 million dollars (place pinky to corner of mouth.)
On such an infamous and history making day, there was little doubt the Vatican would issue a statement. That's why no one was particularly surprised when Pope Benedict came out using the strongest language from the Vatican in some time denouncing Potter.
OK, in his defense, the guy with the Big White Hat is rather aged. Already beat the "three score and ten" often quoted from the Psalms. Possibly he meant to denounce JOHN Potter and simply had a senior moment. Certainly the Vatican did not allow this precedent setting commentary on their policies go without comment.
I guess the "Holy See" just doesn't "see" it. (Clever pun quota met for today.)
According to Ratzinger, reading about some four-eyed-son-of-a-witch is much more harmful than a confessional fondling by Father Nutsinhander. Surely these youngsters were asking to be fondled, what with their bambi-like eyes, impish naiveté and round buttocks, playfully hidden beneath the folds of an alter-boy dress.
What sexually repressed, hard on in a penguin suit could resist asking them to visit his Rectory?
Catholics should begin addressing the real source of the sexual abuse scandal-stop reporting abuse. It worked for 50 years, it will work for 50 more.

God Will Forgive Your Sins
This was an article I did for a friend of mine.I received your email on your friend who apparently is having a hard time in dealing with whether or not God will really forgive her for some bad "sins" in her past.
Rock of Ages
William Jennings Bryan said: "Christians desire that their children shall be taught all the sciences, but they do not want them to lose sight of the Rock of Ages while they study the age of rocks."It may seem incredible to those who do not know that the Churchians created the Devil as a means of keeping their flock in fear - who also think the Devil is a Pagan concept.

Daniel 2:44-11:35To begin with, what is prophecy? It's the study of future events. There are those who think that the rapture has already taken place, and that Jesus has already set up His kingdom on earth.
It is written in Revelation 1:1 The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw-that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The Right of Passage
The Right of Passage. by Rev.
Me and My Big Mouth!
During World War II the government realized that the majority of citizen-soldiers had no idea on how to conduct themselves to prevent inadvertent disclosure of important information to the enemy. Central to maintaining national security was the Office of War Information Drive to limit talk about the war in both public and private arenas of American life.
The Great White Throne Judgment
Before we get the new heaven and new earth, there is one more event that must take place - the Great White Throne Judgment. In my last article, Satan is Let Loose One More Time, you saw that Satan will end up in the Lake of Fire and Brimstone forever and ever - never to bother, harm or tempt humans ever again! Now what happens to the rest of unsaved humanity?They will all come before God in what is called the Great White Throne Judgment.
In the Wake of Katrina: For Mature Christians Only!

A Gentle God
I was in my late teens when I first read Henry Barbusse's Under Fire, a novel set in the first world war trenches. It led me to consider the question: who does God listen to when He is bombarded with the prayers of different nations and religions, all equally convinced that He is on their side?As I grew up, the questions became more problematic: what kind of god are we talking about? Who would want to follow a supposedly supreme being whose followers regularly take up arms in his name?While Muslim leaders are urging their followers to look honestly at the health of their faith, Christian bishops are silent.
Josephs Life-a Series of Coincidences
