      before or after we started to fight back?

      Have you agreed to stop abusing our children during
      this "ecclesiastical" period?

      Here's a quid--where's a "pro quo"?

        Or can you actually find and quote where I said you or yours were "intriscially discordered" ?
        I don't even know what "intriscially discordered" means ,
        so I don't know how I would have even thought of it .

        Have you agreed to stop abusing our children during this "ecclesiastical" period?
        That is a very rude / insulting / wrong , question to ask . How dare you ask me that ?

          The new keyboard does not obey my every command!

          I find the question direct and very material.

          Do you deny that Roman clergy have abused, raped
          and done other criminal things to minors, and then
          many of the clergy were "hidden" by other clergy?

          What about the hundreds of millions of dollars paid to
          the the victims of crime and abuse? Did that not happen?

          You ask from me--what is your offer?
          What consideration are you giving me and mine for
          this period?

          I know Timaes, and have had many good interchanges
          with him here on the Orange Satan. But I will not
          suspend basic intellectual honesty.

              just Google "intrinsically disordered" and you will find
              the teachings of the Roman Catholic church.

              I do not consider you an official teacher.

              •  You can't find where I said anything (5+ / 0-)

                of the sort , you can't quote me as saying anything of the sort so you ask me to google it ?
                That is a total failure on your part .

                I do not consider you an official teacher.
                Did you fail to understand this
                I am not religious . I'm an atheist .
                Do I need to use smaller word ? me no go to church . me no have god .

                just remember... Jesus wept...

                You have said way more that you should have , your attacking me with your little games shows you to be lacking , seriously lacking .

                You would rather attack an atheist then stand down for 3 days ? Bazaar !

                You ask me

                Have you agreed to stop abusing our children during this "ecclesiastical" period?
                How fucking dare you ! That bull shit , have you stopped beating your wife game is only played by fools .
                I have nothing to do with it . Your asking me if I have stopped is bullshit .
                Did you call me & mine "intriscially discordered" before or after we started to fight back?
                One last time , Post a quote of me saying this or retract it . You have two choices , you can post a quote of me saying what you put quote marks around  or you can admit that your bullshit was nothing but bullshit .

    •  I Wrote a Diary About the 1914 Christmas Truce (15+ / 0-)

      Here's the link to the diary - An Inspirational Christmas Story About the Night the Guns Fell Silent.

      An excerpt:

      For a brief period in 1914, the guns of war fell silent and the slaughter stopped.  It was a remarkable moment in the history of modern warfare...

      On Christmas Day, after a night of carol singing, a private with the Welsh Fusiliers recalled that feelings of goodwill had so swelled up that at dawn Bavarian and British soldiers clambered spontaneously out of their trenches.  A football was produced from somewhere – though none could recall from where. "It wasn't a game as such, more a kick-around and a free-for-all.  There could have been 50 on each side for all I know.  I played because I really liked football.  I don't know how long it lasted, probably half an hour."

      A wonderful moment of hope and peace in that awful conflict that was then the costliest in human history.

      Peace on Earth, Goodwill to all Men.

      dedicated to enabling child abuse and denying women basic health care and actively oppressing and harming LGBT people is in no way comparable to shooting people.

      income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%

      •  Good grief. (5+ / 0-)

        I usually rec your comments, JesseCW, since we have similar left-wing, pro-social-justice beliefs.

        But your bigotry here is not acceptable and not welcome in my diary.

        1. The Catholic Church is not a "right wing organization."  It's by far the largest organization for social justice in the world, by far the largest supporter of charities, BY FAR!

        2. It is not dedicated to enabling child abuse!  The abuses were horrible and are being addressed, but they have never been epidemic throughout the church.  This new pope may be rather revolutionary about this issue.  I hope so.

        3. No, the church is not systematically opposed to "denying women basic health care."  That's wrong.

        4. And no, the church is not "actively oppressing and harming LGBT people." As a liberal American Catholic, I wish the pope and the bishops would lighten up on the same-sex marriage issue.  But I don't believe their opposition to that amounts to your claim of actively oppressing and harming.

        It's folly to engage on these issues here.  There's a big chance of getting ganged up on with HRs and overheated falsehoods.

        But I think we have a genuine saint with this new pope, and we should give him time to surprise.

          ...the Catholic church's actions against LGBT people is amazing. It's hardly as secret, so the only explanation is that you're dedication to the Catholic church is such that you're willing to ignore what it does. At best, that makes you an enabler of that oppression, at worst, it makes you a participant in that oppression. I know you won't listen to me because you never do. But your claims of Christian good will and compassion ring ever hollow while you ingore the harm your church inflicts on LGBT people.
