Considering they are under almost constant attack this isn't surprising.

Religion needs to evolve. One of my biggest problems with the Catholic Church is that the rules and guidelines are very archaic. What worked 400 years ago will not work now...

ATTACK!!!!! lol

For such a small group, they must have a compelling and reasonable argument to gain that kind of share in such a brand-preference market.

the theme of christianity is to oppose all contrary facts, until it seems silly to do so. Then attack another fact until it also seems silly to do so.

When Dinosaur fossils were first discovered, then dated, the Christian religion had to either come to grips that Genesis was simply a story, or create museums that have Stegosaurases with saddles for kids to ride on. Either choice does not make them look that good to the reasonable person.

Once that choice was made, then it was on to evolution theory, with basically the same "accept it and ignore that part of the Bible, or stick your head in the sand" choices.

Same with the Earth centric universe, creation timeline....when man can create life from organic compounds, there will be another hand wringing episode then as well.

This is why the Old Testament is mostly ignored as "rules for ancient cultures to live by" and the New Testament is all correct for some reason.

Except for the gay people, thats important to look for guidance for in the Old Testament.

The one thing I'm thankful for most regarding my parents is that they never took me to church. I made up my mind at a pretty early age and have been agnostic ever since.

I agree with Phil Donahue, though....it's just as crazy to say definitively that there isn't a higher being as it is to say that there is.

haha yea my problem with the catholic church is everything!!! They are just a corporation with religion as its front..They are no better than the televangelist that says hes gonna heal you, all you gotta do is send him some money and he sends you a green napkin... like do people actually believe this crap??

There was a pope in the 17th or 18th century that would give you a get out of hell card if you made a donation to the church...you could also prepay the church for sins you were about to commit..sooo yea they are just money mongers...

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
