  • Women should stay out of workforce (Letter to Editor)

    You are correct, I would only differ in one respect, and that is that, while proverbs extols the virtues of the industrious wife, it is in the overall context of the woman being the primary caregiver to the children until they were old enough to begin becoming industrious themselves, a trait learned in the laps of their mothers.

    I would suspect that most housewives of the fifties and prior were not so conspicuously idle as you seem to suggest. Being a wealthy, or even of moderate means, in prior gererations meant employing a number of people to “run your household”. The wives and mothers who had the ability in this country to stay home often did the work that would have been required of several others only 100 years earlier.

    I dare anyone to suggest to my mother that she didn’t work as hard as anyone in the workforce (as good a Christian woman as ever walked this earth) ‘cause she’d show you what a switch was for!

    Spot on, as is the author. As another poster pointed out, the dynamic of a stay-at-home mom, as we remember it, is a relatively new, and almost uniquely American idea. Prior to the late 19th century, women worked as much and as hard as men, as did children, although in an agrarian culture, the wife’s work did consist of more of the “household” chores, but that was due to the work being more suitable to her than farming the fields or operating the mill (not that some did not do that).

    If anything, that brief, idyllic period should remind us of what we have given up in the last 60 years as our culture and our government have changed and grown beyond all recognition. Even in some of the posts agreeing with the author, there is just a hint of condecension when referring to those who don’t “plan” correctly.

    Pope Paul VI had it right all those years ago. First comes the denial of the obvious differences between men and women, and the attempt to make them the same. Then comes the “planning” of families (forget about God being a partner in your marriage) and then comes abortion as the stop-gap contraception. In a world where the act that was designed for procreation becomes simply another pastime, why wonder that culture has all but fallen apart.

    This author’s opinion would not solve all of the problems to which he alluded, although it would alleviate them to some degree, however, it is only another small symptom of the greater breakdown of American society in general.

    Everything that the article discussed is rooted in scripture as described fully in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. You should read it sometime, it is the ONLY fully articulated and fully scritptural explanation of Christian doctrine (not Catholic, but Christian) that I am aware of.

    This article was merely a logical dissection of the arguments of a few old hippie nuns who are still fighting the Vietnam war and protesting Richard Nixon.

    Despite your negative reaction to names which are nothing more than a title of respect, I think that the previous post was spot on. Call him what you will, but, he is the successor to St Peter to whom Christ himself gave the keys to the kingdom and promised that even the gates of hell would not prevail against it.

    He is there as the final arbiter. Christ knows our weakneses. Remember what he told the Pharisees about why Moses allowed the Jews to divorce. He knows that we will always find a way to justify our behavior and gives us through his teaching, the apostles and their successors to help guide us. The church is far from perfect, but Christ promise that the Spirit would be with her always is enough for me, who am i to question my God.

    Say what you will, but the profusion of Protestant sects is simply a fact,and one question which Sola Scriptura never quite manages to get around is, what makes ANYONES interpretation of scripture any more or less valid than anyone else’s? If that is the case, then why is this interpretation of the teachings of Jesus any less valid than yours?

    This sect or that sect could find obscure language that tells them that those in a committed relationship with a dog, or a building, or three partners are just great with Jesus, after all, He never specifically prohibited them.

    That is why, like it or not, Our Lord gave us the Church, warts and all.

    So your point is that only Catholics voted for O? No evangelicals did?

    As for your history comment, if you’re referring to US history, it is Catholics who have been the most oppressed religious group, Mormons excepted, in our country. If on the other hand, you are referring to more ancient history, I doubt that there is any Protestant religion that came from the old country that doesn’t have as many troubles with “religious liberty” as the Church.

    I doubt that any post will cure you of your bitterness toward me and the Church, that is something that only you can ask Our Saviour for help with, but, I would come to your defense to practice your religion without gov’t interference any time. I mean that.

    LurkLongley to LevinFan; All

    Purgatory is much misunderstood. In the most simple terms, think of seeking forgiveness from another for a theft. In addition to their acceptence of your apology, you would also be expected to make recompense for your theft, the forgiveness is a gift, freely given by the one wronged, it is seperate from the recompense. A just man, even should his apology be refused, would still consider himself bound to the recompense.

    Think of ourselves as the thief. We have all stolen from God and offended Him in our sin, this we all agree on.
    We are offered forgiveness for all of our sins freely by our Saviour, but, that does not release us from the obligation of recompense, not if we truly are just. As Lewis put it so well, we would not WANT to walk in God’s sight knowing that there was payment due him.

    Please excuse my rants, as they were written in anger at the anti-Catholic bigotry that reared its ugly head long before I saw any Protestant bashing, but, two wrongs do not make a right, and i apologize freely and sincerely for my anger.

    As a Catholic, however, seeing the person of Joseph Ratizinger, whom I and 1.2 billion others revere as the Holy Father being called the Po Po and less savory things, touched a nerve.

    The Holy Father’s comments were meant to be read and reflected upon by Catholics. They were meant to correct and clarify the Church’s position for Catholics so that they may have a clear statement of the Church’s rather ambiguous stance of the last forty years vis a vis our seperated brothers, it is not meant to be taken as an insult by anyone else.

    That being said, is anyone really suprised that the leader of the Church confirmed that Apostolic Succession is required for a true Church? Otherwise, why bother being a Catholic in the first place? There is a reason that our seperated brothers are called Protestant, you protest!

    The problem IMHO is that we are so self absorbed, that most Christians have forgotten that there are three people involved in the decision to have children, a father, a mother, and God (not neccessarily in that order). Using contreception simply removes God from that process, just like we have tried to in every other aspect of our daily lives.

    Thank you. You have managed to completely change my spirit, and I see now how we have been deceived ever since those patristic fathers time and only Martin Luther was able, with the able assistence of John Calvin, Joel Osteen and about 20,000 other so called “theologians” to determine the truth. By the way, whose “truth” do you espouse?

    I hereby renounce my allegiance to the Church. sarc/ off

    Who do you suppose put the Scripture into its written form? Or were we still in that magical period where unicorns and fairy dust still floated out of the arse’s of the “Patristic Fathers” instead of the homely gases that issue from our poor deluded Successors to the Apostles today?

    No thanks. I think I’ll stick with the One True Church, founded by Christ himself, warts and all. You keep on searching scripture for that “special verse” that’s been missed by all the rest of us for the last 2000 years, and let me know when you find it, where the Lord says that everyone will believe whatever they want and that no one’s interpretation of Scripture is better than anyone else’s.

    We had that argument once, it was called Pelagianism.

    Because, many Christians confuse the obligation of charity, which is a PERSONAL obligation with the so called charity of the nanny state. They are too shallow to comprehend the internal change which begins with repentence and manifests itself in the way in which you live your life and charity is only one of those manifestations.

    Social conservatives too often confuse the moral absolutes which are the obligations of a person who has surrendered to Christ with the law. It has been proven time and time again that it is difficult, if not impossible, to legislate morality.

    Change comes from within.

    As a Catholic, this whole end times debate sort of amuses me and reading this thread only continues to show me why Our Savior established One Church and she continues to this day to show the way to him, whether in Marian devotion, or, other forms of worship. We have been given the gift of not having to have endless debate.

    Regardless, I read this thread, not really to read the posts between the various camps involved here but because I knew that there had to be at least one Catholic bashing post.

    Thank you, my brother in Christ, for not letting me down!

    If you want to comment on my church and its beliefs, be certain that you do no harm to me, or the Church, but, it kind of belittles you that you won’t take the time understand the fullness of what the Church teaches before you take the time to trash her again and again.

  • Priests have been 'worse' than silent on contraception, says canon law expert

    LurkLongley to Clemenza

    Well... Since you want to ignore the spiritual aspect, which to me IS the issue, how about the demographic one.

    Americans are only hanging onto a productive replacement rate due to the family sizes of your poor immigrant, low IQ (although how you figure that leaves me wondering) and all. Meanwhile Europe is in the midst of demographic suicide. There will be no cultural Europeans in the very near future.

    Your “supporting the brood” comment kills me. It was not too many years ago that my Grandparents raised 13 kids, during the depression, and the “brood” all lived and thrived. It’s a straw man argument. Sounds good, but all reality refutes it.

    The United States is less a nation than an ideal, one we have, at times, failed to live up to. There is no reason that a Mexican immigrant (legal of course-we can discuss immigration reform if you want, but that’s a separate issue) cannot become every bit as much an American as you or me, although your views are a little bit scary if you think that the Church’s consistent support for God’s plan for procreation is something that has never been thought of before. If you truly want answers, the Church is ready for you to discover for yourself what She teaches and why.

    The invitation is open.

    To respond with all clarity, one would need to read Humanae Vitae, by Paul VI, or the Catholic Catechism to understand the full answer to your questions, but, the simple answer is that contraception, like abortion, interfere’s with God’s plan for humanity’s continued preservation.

    In the case of abortion, the parents are depriving God of his role in deciding the outcome of that pregnancy and of that being, their life.

    In the case of contraception, the decision to create life is not one that is in the hands of just the couple involved, there is a third party, and that is God. Contraception tries to place man above God in the decision of when to create life. Also, the pill IS an abortificant as it prevents the fertilized egg from implanting in the uterine wall.

    Real Catholics may, for extaordinary reasons, use natural family planning methods but they must always be receptive to life, whether it fits into their plans or not. We make this pledge to each other and to God in our wedding vows.

    The last line of the story is the pull-quote that a change is needed at the top in the Vatican and that because of their “top down” approach, priests just naturally pick up on that.

    The story offers no opinion, but it is implicit, this is the fault of a hierarchical church, and one which it is much more difficult for them to influence and, therefore, must be pilloried at every possible moment. Kick a Church when it’s down.

    This is nothing new, just the secularists putting the Vatican on notice that they are watching them and ready to turn the screws. God Bless his Holiness, I hope he opens up with both barrels on these maroons.

    You don’t have a correct understanding if we are referring to the same case. “De-frocking” a priest involves a long canonical process that is designed to protect the rights of defendants and takes a long long time, and this priest was so ill that the pope preferred something quicker.

    As far as forgiveness goes, judge not lest ye be judged. Part of the problem is that you don’t understand the relationship of a priest to a bishop. A Bishop is to a priest what a father is to a son, and they owe them the same duty. I’m sure you know parents who have intervened on their children’s behalf even knowing that they were guilty of a transgression. Also, forgiveness itself is part of the role of any priest, including bishops. You are correct that forgiveness cannot be completed until restitution has been paid, and that is the part that most people would like to forget, as did a lot of bishops.

    I would not defend any illegal behavior by any cleric, sexual or otherwise. I would, however, defend the Church when a story that actually points out that the Holy Father and the rest of the Vatican have been out in front on this issue.

    This is just one more attack on a conservative, pro-life, high profile group that represents a threat to the secular lifestyle.

    Agreed, Steele has got to go, but we need a manager in there, one who can grab the reins and go. We need

    I can think of two names that come to mind: Newt and Mitt. Of the two, I think that Mitt would be the better choice. I think he’s out in 2012 (whatever he thinks) and he is an excellent manager.

    Here it comes....

    Takes Mitt out of contention in 2012 IMO. Put him at the RNC yesterday and get steele out of there.

    I’m not saying that he wouldn’t be great in a presidential debate, he’d cut the Obambalator to ribbons, but I don’t think he is electable. Be a great VP though. No, I want Steele out. He is not pulling together the troops for a victory in Nov. We need a leader NOW at the RNC!

    Just another example of the MSM giving the Obaminator covering fire, just like they’ve been doing ever since about March of ‘09. Expect the stories about the “booming” economy to keep getting more stupid and banal as the weeks go by.

    The MSM kept up a steady drip of toxic Bush stories from day one.

    Nothing to see here...move along...
