Bishops scrap welcome to gays in sign of split ("irregular" unions voted down)
Post Date: 2014-10-18 17:29:18 by Hondo68
VATICAN CITY (AP) Catholic bishops scrapped their landmark welcome to gays Saturday, showing deep divisions at the end of a two-week meeting sought by Pope Francis to chart a more merciful approach to ministering to Catholic families.The bishops failed to approve even a watered-down section on ministering to homosexuals that stripped away the welcoming tone of acceptance contained in a draft document earlier in the week.Rather than considering gays as individuals who had gifts to offer the church, the revised paragraph referred to homosexuality as one of the problems Catholic families have to confront. It said "people with homosexual tendencies must be welcomed with respect and ...

Post Date: 2014-10-18 15:39:40 by IbJensen
Cardinal Raymond Burke, the conservative American who holds the top position in the Vaticans justice system, on Friday told BuzzFeed he was being demoted. Burke, a former archbishop of St Louis, has publicly challenged Pope Francis on issues including abortion and homosexuality. A preliminary report from the churchs extraordinary synod on the family, released on Monday, signalled a readiness to adopt a more conciliatory attitude towards homosexuality, divorce and other irregular family situations. More than 200 bishops contributed to the report, which said: Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community: are we capable of ...
What heaven's really like-by a leading brain surgeon who says he's been there: Read his testimony before you scoff...it might just shake your beliefs

When I was a small boy, I was adopted. I grew up remembering nothing of my birth family and unaware that I had a biological sister, named Betsy. Many years later, I went in search of my biological family, but for Betsy it was too late: she had died. This is the story of how I was reunited with her in Heaven. Before I start, I should explain that I am a scientist, who has spent a lifetime studying the workings of the brain. My adoptive father was a neurosurgeon and I followed his path, becoming an neurosurgeon myself and an academic who taught brain science at Harvard Medical School. Although nominally a Christian, I was sceptical when patients described spiritual experiences to ...

Vatican alters draft report translation about gays
Post Date: 2014-10-16 14:47:19 by IbJensen
( Pope Francis greets a Vatican Swiss Guard as he arrives for a morning session of a two-week synod on family issues, at the Vatican, Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014.) VATICAN CITY The contentious debate over the Vatican's ground-breaking overture to gays has taken a new twist. The Vatican on Thursday released a new English translation of the draft report of bishops debating family issues. The new translation significantly alters the section about gays, diminishing the welcoming tone from the original Italian. The report has been highly criticized by many conservative English-speaking bishops Americans and Africans mostly primarily because of the welcome extended to ...
Caritas Internationalis on governing body of radical communist, pro-abortion organization: report
Post Date: 2014-10-16 00:16:38 by redleghunter
Caritas Internationalis, the Vatican's top social justice body, is involved in leading a radically pro-abortion, pro-homosexual and communist organization, according to a new in-depth report by the American Life League (ALL). The World Social Forum (WSF) is an annual international meeting of social justice organizations formed in 2001. It describes itself as a forum for social movements, networks, NGOs and other civil society organizations opposed to neo- liberalism and a world dominated by capital or by any form of imperialism. However, the organization is also a vehicle for much more than radically leftist economic thinking, according to ALLs report. The ...
The enigma of Islam: The two faces of Muhammad
Post Date: 2014-10-14 16:51:17 by redleghunter
American Muslims tell us that Islam is a religion of peace. Jihadist leaders abroad describe Islam as a religion of war against infidels. Who is correct? Both are correct. If both are correct, does this mean that there are two Muhammads and two Qurans? Yes, in the sense that Muhammad was like two different persons at two different times and the Quran is like two contradictory books pasted together. Now that you are thoroughly confused, let us turn to history and to the book Islam and the Bible: Why two faiths collide (2004), by David Goldmann, veteran missionary to Muslims in Morocco, for the solution to this riddle. Muhammad (circa 570632 A.D.) was born in Mecca and was a ...
Vatican: “Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community”
Post Date: 2014-10-14 13:55:10 by IbJensen
(Francis: The Talking Mule) Homosexuality has been the political battering ram of the opposition to Gods law and freedom in the past 25 years in America. More recent the sodomites attempt at redefining marriage has been used as the weapon of choice. Now, the liberal leaning Pope Francis and his Roman ecclesiastical hierarchy have stepped in it again, this time with homosexuality. The Popes recent synod led to a document, in which bishops said they should focus on the positive aspects that sodomites have in the church. This Pope has attacked capitalism, embraced Islam and many have suggested he has laid groundwork for a one world religion. While they did not endorse ...

Same Sex Marriage: Stealing Heresy From God
Post Date: 2014-05-14 09:18:46 by A K A Stone
Anyone who opposes same-sex marriage is wrong, says the gay mafiathe term the liberal TV personality Bill Maher gave to homosexual activists who whack dissenters. According to them, same sex marriage is now not only a right, no one has the right to oppose it. This new right is so powerful it has completely wiped out the old rights that our founding fathers enshrined in our Constitution: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of association. But we saw in the first column, same sex marriage is not really a right but a preference. Some call it a right but they are actually stealing the authority of rights from God and misapplying ...

Post Date: 2013-11-24 17:14:25 by Brian S
BOSTON A Christian journal run by Harvard University students has apologized for publishing and republishing an essay by an anonymous writer who wrote that Jews deserve to be punished by God for killing Jesus.

How Many Americans Actually Believe The Earth Is Only 6,000 Years Old?
Post Date: 2013-11-11 12:38:05 by Brian S
For thirty years, Gallup has been asking Americans their views about evolution and human beings, and the results have been remarkably consistent and stable. Last year, Gallup once again reported that nearly half of the country believe the Biblical version of events: Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years. The Bible doesnt actually say how long ago the account of creation in the book of Genesis was supposed to have taken place. But in 1650, Church of Ireland Archbishop James Ussher used the stories of the Old Testament to calculate that the world had been created ...
Atheist Mega-Churches 'Take Root Across US, World'
Post Date: 2013-11-10 18:16:13 by Brian S
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It looked like a typical Sunday morning at any mega-church. Hundreds packed in for more than an hour of rousing music, an inspirational sermon, a reading and some quiet reflection. The only thing missing was God. Dozens of gatherings dubbed "atheist mega-churches" by supporters and detractors are springing up around the U.S. after finding success in Great Britain earlier this year. The movement fueled by social media and spearheaded by two prominent British comedians is no joke. On Sunday, the inaugural Sunday Assembly in Los Angeles attracted more than 400 attendees, all bound by their belief in non-belief. Similar gatherings in San Diego, Nashville, New ...
Bolz-Weber’s liberal, foulmouthed articulation of Christianity speaks to fed-up believers
Post Date: 2013-11-04 22:25:53 by Hondo68
A budding star of progressive Christianity: Nadia Bolz-Weber, a tattooed Lutheran minister, represents a new, muscular form of progressive Christianity. AUSTIN Nadia Bolz-Weber bounds into the University United Methodist Church sanctuary like a superhero from Planet Alternative Christian. Her 6-foot-1 frame is plastered with tattoos, her arms are sculpted by competitive weightlifting and, to show it all off, this pastor is wearing a tight tank top and jeans. Looking out at the hundreds of people crowded into the pews to hear her present the gospel of Jesus Christ, she sees: Dockers and blazers. Sensible shoes. Grandmothers and soccer moms. Nary a facial piercing. To ...

Questions for Muslims
Post Date: 2013-09-18 15:36:27 by redleghunter
Dear Muslim, I do not post these questions as a "proof" that Islam is false. I do not believe that is possible with a simple list of questions. Nevertheless, they are here to encourage discussion that the truth may be known. 1.The Qur'an says "To those who believe and do deeds of righteousness hath Allah promised forgiveness and a great reward" (Surah 5:9). A.Question: Are you doing enough good deeds to receive salvation on the Day of Judgment? B.Question: Are you doing all you can or are you relaxing in your dedication to Allah? 2.The Qur'an says, "O ye who believe! Turn unto Allah in sincere repentance! It may be that your Lord will remit from you your ...
