How far this nation has slid, when a black mass is performed, unashamedly, in public. With the support of the public.
He can do as he likes but in the end he is doing nothing but desecrating mere bread and wine.
Fun and games, desecrating holy things for the publicity.
God gets the last laugh on Judgment Day.
It would be really cool if the host turned to actual flesh. That would freak them out!
Actually, he is not desecrating anything.
Actually, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
It seems to me that this is the applicable principle. The first amendment does not make exceptions for religions that the majority finds offensive. I am in no way supporting Satanism, but it does seem that the founding principles of America, which include free expression of religion, argue in favor of allowing a public black mass to occur (obviously assuming that it is conducted lawfully; no animal sacrifices, etc.).
I am an usher in my church. Maintaining security on consecrated hosts is at the top of our To Do List.
Daniels actually agrees with you:
“My question is, why is a piece of bread that some man said some words over so sacred?”
Actually, because nothing can be desecrated?
Yet another reason to end the abomination known as giving Holy Communion in the hand
Whether people agree or not, this country WAS founded as a God honoring and God fearing country.
Our country has slidden so far, that at one time a Satanist would have been ashamed to admit it privately, let alone publicly.
Where is the public outcry?
Not just from the Catholic church. But every church in the area.
60 years ago, even non religious people would have been outraged and decrying this.
Say what you want about the First Amendment, but I doubt that James Madison or any of the signers of The Constitution, would have allowed this in their day.
1 Cor 11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
The holiness of the Host is not affected by our holiness. We are the ones who must prepare ourselves to receive our Lord Who is present regardless of our faith.
The opposite is true, after the consecration it is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, whether you accept it or not.
Desecrating it will bring him to a place he really doesn't want to go.
A satanist could get ahold of It without stealing It from the tabernacle.
And that is why people should not take Communion in the hand. It is too easy for a satanist to pocket.
a piece of bread that some man said some words over
Since the poster's argument is so devoid of substance I'm surprised they didn't ask about the farmer who planted the wheat. The point is God Himself makes the critical step, but it helps the poster's "point" to actively ignore that.
The city government is providing a forum for the abuse and mockery of two different communities of citizens for the benefit of a third.
He CHOSE to belong to Satan.
He doesn't seem to have anyone to pray for him. How far down he has sunk!
