Pray for peace. and pray that we can somehow get the right wing screwballs that are now in control of America to see the light. Although i have no illusions that they ever will see the light, any light except that which they generate nd give unto themselves in their rampant and extremist hypocrisy. The USA is being controlled by crazies. And their is no stopping them as they go about their death agneda for profits and political power.

Talk about wierd...
The Big Transfer...
I am spending so much time posting on Alternet, Salon.com, HuffPo, Mojo and some other sites that I usually neglect my blog. I just don't have the energy to create the same thing or nearly the same thing twice. So in order to get my oh so fine words, I'm joking I am much more humble than to believe that, into my blog I am trying to learn to use Notepad2, a tool that I have just acquirded, a feebie becuase i can't afford anything else, and am triying to use it. So here goes nothing. I hope I can make this tool work, as i really don't know what I am doing. Now I am going to try to transfer this little item to my blog. Here goes...
WOW, it worked, all it took was to use COPY and then PASTE. I wonder why I didn't learn to use these tools about ten years ago. And especially given the fact that i have been on the internet since the late 80's. I guess as smart as I think I am just maybe I am not so smart, as i think i am. Not so smart at all. I neede a good dose of humility and a coming down to earth. Now if George Bush and the Pope and the Catholic fundies and the evangelical fundies would also learn some humility the world would be a much better and safer place to live. But I do not see any humility on the horizon for the aforementioned.
Amazing things, these computers. Now I'll try to type in to Notepad2 a much bigger document, one that is going to be posted to Alternet and to this blog. Good luck to me. This may take awhile.
Hopefully this note/item...

Book of Questions, Questions and more Questions
I have so many questions. Questions, Questions and more questions. I have so many questions that they could fill a book. So I guess it would be okay to call it My Book of Questions. Or maybe A Book of Questions. I have far more questions than I have answers, understandings or conclusions.
I wonder how is it that killing for oil profits and war profits is seemingly okay for the right wingers even though the commandment says Thou Shalt Not Kill. But if your a Republican looking for profits and political power such killing is okay? And if you are a member of the religious right wing(ers) it is perfectly okay for you to belong to that political party of killers for profits. In their world profits seem to trump the Laws of God and the teachings of Jesus Christ.
My take on the situation is that killing is forbidden by God, and that there is absolutely no justification for killing of any kind. And when a group of people gather themselves into a monolithic group and go about the business of killing of others via their group warfare upon the welfare of others, shall we call them victims/innocents and to do it because they have oil their can be no justification for their "Culture of Death" for oil and war profits.
So in reality they break two laws of God, Thou Shalt Not Kill and Thou Shalt Not Steal. These groups are the Republican Party and the Catholic Church(Catholic fundamentalists) and the evangelical fundamentalists. Though they try to hide their agenda behind the artificial argument of Pro-life and family values it is still killing for profits.
Where Jesus here today and walking the planet He would forbid their death for profits agenda. He would forbid their wars and demand diplomacy. I seem to think Jesus would say diplomacy for peace is okay while war for peace is forbidden. He would wave his hand and stop the right wingers wars for oil profits.
Saddam is not killing for oil control, he is dead. They are killing for oil control. So shouldn't they be dead as well.
Some of the threads that run through my mind are the ones that circle around the Blessed Virgin Mary and her statements to the three children at Fatima. If I understand theologians correctly the blessed Virgin spoke about the death of a Pope, the high level scandals within the Catholic Church and some threat coming out of Russia. But Russia provides much of Europe with their natural gas for heating homes and buildings and so why would Russia want to threaten this huge source of income from gas sales. So in the event of a NWO does the Church expect to rule Europe and threaten Russia.
Another thought is that Christ was hung on the Cross and blacks in the south were hung from the lynching trees. Coin from Union Theological Seminary posits this idea. Will Christ's next coming be as a black man. And do all those innocents who die in the Republican Party oil wars die to pay for our sins, just as Christ died to pay for our sins.
Questions - Questions - Questions
Many Questions and very few answers; but then it is not for us to know the time or the place... Except for George Bush and his Dispensationalist/ Armageddonist friends.
Bush and all of his cronies in the corporate world and the neocon world and the right wing religious world are all killers.
Thou shalt not kill...but they kill. Thou shalt not steal...and they steal. Thou shalt not lie...but they lie and lie and lie. And yet they either do not see or they see and just go ahead and do their foul evil deeds anyway.
Ever since WWII and the founding of the CIA the USA government has been commiting atrocities and killing people all over the world. the first such event might have been Eisenhowers use of the CIA to overthrow the democratically elected and apparently very popular leader of Iran Dr. Mohammed Mossadeq/ Mossadegh/Mossaddegh. This was done at the behest of the British government and the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company known today as British Petroleum aka BP. The Iranian people have never gotten over that atrocity. Wikipedia spells it all out.
Speaking of Wikipedia, the right wingers just hate Wikipedia because it quickly and easily shows all the world what they have done and prefer to keep hidden. The right wingers complain that Wikipedia can be easily manipulated to say anything. That was once and to a certain extent true. But when a program was written to show who was doing the foul evil deeds of manipulating Wikipedai it was discovered that ALL of the manipulations and illegal entries put into Wiki was done by, yup you guessed it, right wingers. Other than the right wing foul evil deeds a study of Wikipedia revealed that it was as accurate as the highly respected and world renowned Encyclopedia Britannica.
I have noticed two manipulations of Wikipedia. Dick Morris' site was altered to show that he was a consultant to the Calderon people, when initially it showed no such thing. I learned that Dick Morris had done his Republican Party foul evil deeds from a report on Democracy Now. org who reported this situation which was discovered by Greg whats-his-name, a BBC stringer/ reporter, who was the one who brought this situation to the publics attention in the first place. Calderon stole the election from Mr. Manuel Lopez-Obrador via help from Dick Morris who used the exact same tactics that the Republican Party's Karl Rove used to corrupt our US elections and put Gorge Bush in office. They used smear and scare/fear mongering tactics to put dubya into office. The same tactics were employed to put Calderon into office and the impoverished Mexican people continue to suffer at the hands of the wealthy in Mexico and the wealthy/corporate interests in America. And what further amazes me is that the Pope is a part of the Republican Party machine. Right wing fundamentalist Catholics in America provide cover for the foul evil machinations of the Republican Party.
It continuously amazes me that the Pope (s)of the Catholic Church, my church, would even allow themselves to be a part of this Republican Party cabal of horrors, but the Popes do. I sent an email to Pope John Paul II asking him to stop involving himself in American politics. Six weeks later he made a public statement denying any such involvement. But we all know he was lying because just four months earlier he had threatened to excommunicate Sen. Kerry if he won the 2004 presidential election. Needless to say Kerry folded under the pressure and just gave up easily.
No religion/ religious leader should ever step into the slime of American politics but the present Pope and the previous Pope have done just that. As the fortunes and corruptions of the Republican Party go so too will go the Catholic Church. What a shame, but then Jesus warned against such doings and the Popes know it.
Oh Yes, speaking of the BBC, Pat Robertson just hates the BBC and for the same reasons the right wingers hate Wikipedia. Both organizations report the truth. Right wingers want to carry out their foul evil deeds under the guise of national security and other strategems of secrecy. They cringe from the light of day.
Absolute power corrupt absolutely and the Republicans are perfect examples. Money is the rot of all evil, and the Republicans are proof of that.
All I hear from right wingers is anger and hate which they constantly spew out onto the American scene. It's not far below the surface on EWTN, the Catholic cable channel. This has been going on since Pope John Paul II put Reagan into the WH. It has gotten very loud and very strong since then and has become full blown under the current administration.
The Catholic Church aligned itself with Hitler and the Nazi Party which tried to end democracy. Now the Church is aligned with Bush and the Republican Party and they are once again trying to put an end to democracy. Scalia, a staunch Catholic and Republican has called for and advocated the end of the rule of law and the end of democracy in America. What could be clearer than that.
Time will reveal all.

N-W-O, New World Order
You may have had the expeience, I just had it again, where you go to sleep and it seems that your brain reshuffles some of it's facts and comes up with a new interpretation; so you end up with a new pov(point of view) or a new insight. The NWO concept was reshuffled in my mind and out came some new insights.
To whit: their are or seem to be three NWO groups. and they seem to break down as follows. First of all we must recognize some basic facts about these three groups and that is SECRECY. All three groups operate under the veil of secrecy, they work very hard to avoid the scrutiny of the world, specifically the people of the world. The outcome of these three groups is that theyare about the task of selling the people of the world into a kind of slavery. A kind of slavery means that the peoples of the world have no choice in the matter, no voice in the matter and will thus be dragged into the resultant, the NWO, not of their own free will. This means that the people of the world will in effect be stripped of their own God given Free Will.
The three groups are forming three NWOs. They are the NWO of the Catholic Church, the NWO of the Bilderberger Group(members include Bill Clinton, Peter Jennings(now deceased) and ex-Sen. Bill Bradley among others. The Straussian neocons form the third NWO model.
So we have: the Catholic Church NWO, the Bilderberger NWO and the Straussian Neocon NWO. So far I find myself loathing all three groups. I can find within me no sense or even shred of kinship with any of these three groups. I regard all three as forming their own agenda for their own benefit and all operating against the family of man.
As for me personally, I support none of these groups. I belong to the family of man, the one created by God that follows the laws of God and the teachings of Jesus Christ and which is imbued with the Holy Spirit of Peace, the Dove of Peace.
When things seem so complicated that I struggle to find the proper path to take I always fall back to the basics. They are the Laws of God, the ten commandments as given to Moses by God. The teachings of Jesus Christ in so far as the bible reveals them and the Dead Sea Scrolls have further revealed them, including the writings of St. Thomas which include the actual words spoken by Jesus. These include the words that Jesus said when question by the apostles,
most especially the words "all that you need is within you and about you". Maybe I'm overly sentimental but every time I write or speak those words I am moved to tears and almost choke over the lump in my throat. My spirit is always shaken to the core at the simple power of those words, which are simple, powerful, profound and compelling and inescapable, all at the same time.
The words that Jesus said, as recorded by Thomas are totally clear and make all the sense in the world as to which is the true path. With those words all the clap-trappings, the clutter and detritus of man made religions fall away as scales from my eyes and simple truths become totally clear. The concepts of the Soul, and Free Will, and the right to choose, and personal responsibility all fall into place in a very powerful and compelling way.That is my humble outlook and POV. Each person has to find his own way and that is called Free Will. That is something that each of us has, given to us by our Creator and totally enobling every one of us. Wow the true magisterium is the magisterium
of the one true God. No religion on this earth can lay claim to that magisterium, the ultimate magisterium and the magisterium of the ULTIMATE, the God whose is the true Father to us all.
Man made religion always falls short because it is the religion of itself and it's own institutionalism. Man made religions fall short because they are man made and full of complex and ever increasingly complex conjugations and permutations as they go about creating ever more complexities while always avoiding the simple truths. When religious scholars sit around their entire lives creating ever more complexities and nuances something is terribly wrong with them. The simple truths are right in frnt of us and always stare us in the face,and yet we /they so often/always look for the complex to explain and understand everything. God would never have created such a complex system of rules and machinations such that only religious scholars can understand/comprehend and therefore seemingly have to teach to the people. God would make his truths self evident, and for all of His children to see and understand. Of course the complex nuanced insinuations of the religious literati satisfies their egos'.
When I mix the ten commandments, the teachings of Jesus, the words of Thomas and the teachings embodied in the Sermon on the Mount I seem to have all that I need to make appropriate decisions and all that I need to tease apart the thorniest and confusing problems into understandings as to which way to go and how to decide exactly what is right. These concepts/truths place me in communion with the family of man and the Creator, and that is all that I need to see my way to a clarity of mind and action. The aforementioned NWO groups are nothing more than man made artifacts, and possessing no real significance in the greater scheme that God has created.
The Catholic NWO serves the institutional Catholic Church.
The Bilderberger NWO stems from the Dutch and British colonial empires and serves their idea of how the world of diminishing resources, oil/ gas/ energy/ nuclear energy/ and other mineral resources and food resources and water resources ought to be doled out by the wealthy, which is/ are those who claim ownership of those resources.
The Straussian Neocon NWO is they who form the cognoscenti NWO and who are all wrapped up in their own world domination. It is important to nt that their are two elements to this group of believers, namely the Jewish neocons(Leo Strauss, the Kristols, Krauthammer, Podhoretz, Feith, Pipes, Libby etc; and the Gentile neocons like the userous Bush Family, Jeb Bush who is very possibly the most dangerous of all of that corrupt family, the Cheney family, Lynn Cheney being the most dangerous and defective with the dickster coming in a close second, and all the other corrupt money grubbers such as the American oil companies and other soulless transnational corporations like Faux Noise and Rupert Murdoch and Halliburton and so many others, all of whom are included in this category.
The Jewish neocons can be easily understood as arising from the various pogroms against the Jews over the centuries. These are the pogroms perpetrated by the Catholic Church over the last 2000 yrs as they have regarded the entire Jewish diaspora as being Christ killers and acting upon that belief system to the great detriment of Jewish people everywhere. The Catholic Church has for 2000 yrs vilified the Jews for the killing of Jesus which was done at the behest of a very small number of Jews, most likely numbering in the tens or at most a hundred plus or minus. So it is easy to see that the Jewish neocons are fighting for their life/lives and protecting themselves after what has been done to them.
The Catholic NWOs are the do-ers of so much evil, especially against the Jews and against all women except for the first approx. one hundred years, when women had equal status to that of men. The Catholic Church has inveighed against women in such a nefarious and corrupt way and for so long that it is almost blind to what it continues to do; despite the hollow words of Pope John Paul II in his miserly, meager and stingy apologies to women and Jews. The Popes, both present and immediately prior, speak in empty words as they have done nothing to change their evil ways. They seem to think apologies are enough and nothing further need be done to make restitution for the ongoing damage to the worldwide Jewish psyche and to the worldwide female psyche.
The Catholic Church via it's alignment with Hitler and the Nazis put forth a direct attack against the allied powers, including America and Russia, andof course against the Jews. The Catholic Church has another attack going against America and Russia, as both countries are at the top of the Popes hitlist. It's army is the Army and military might of the Republican Party and the Bush family. The Church is winning, as our constitution has been badly shredded and America is now a very divided and deeply fragmented country. The Church gives votes, Catholic votes, and the Republican Party gives political power to the Church. Scalia revealed the intentions of the Catholic Church when he called for and advocatd the END of THE RULE of LAW and the END of DEMOCRACY in America. That speech was given in May, 2000. Nothing could be clearer as that speech was in revealing the true intentions of the Catholic Church.
Even if the Dems take the presidency in the elections of 2008 I can see no reason to believe that they can reverse the foul evil deeds done by the Catholic Church via it's alignment with the Republican Party. The Church has strayed VERY FAR from the PATH that Jesus set down for us to follow. The Catholic Church did it's best to destroy America and Russia during WWII and it failed. So once again it does the same thing via it's alignment with the Bush family and the totally greedy Republican Party but this time it is enjoying immense success. It has already turned it's sights on Russia and it is only a matter of time. I sincerely hope I am wrong, but I live in fear that I am correct. I have never been so fearful of the Catholic Church as I am now. I live in daily fear of what will come next. Itis just amazing that one man, the Pope, and one organization, the Catholic Church has that much power. It has the power to condemn all or any one of us to death and the will to use that power on every one it can.
That, my friends, is "The Culture of Death".
I remain, as alway, convinced of the fact that there is no room in this world for any kind of fundamentalism, be it religious fundamentalism, economic/financial fundamentalism or military fundamentalism. All fundies are dangerous be they Catholic fundies, Evangelical fundies or Islamic fundies. They are all equally anathema to human life.
God put us on this earth and it is up to all us and each of us to find peace and love toward all. That is our responsibility. No more Holocausts, not ever again, no matter who are the perpetrators and no matter how benign they may seem. If one death results from their agenda they are wrong and heretical and blasphemous and guilty of the sin of PRIDE. The Catholic Fundies, the Evangelical fundies and the Islamic fundies are all equally wrong, it's just as simple as that.
Sorry for the lack of editing.

So Gonzales is to be gone(Sept. 17th)
Gonzo is another 'fall guy' sacrificed to further the ambitions of George Bush and the Bush crime family and the Rethug party and the ambitions of the religious right. Gonzo deserves to be gone for all the damage he has done to our democracy, but so to do the other aforementioned, and for the same reason.
Gonzo is a sacrificial anode to put it in marine terms. He has been sacrificed to keep the Bushco Republican ship of state floating a little longer, before it falls into complete corrosion.
Gonzo is a sacrifice to the roman gods, to keep the pagan emporer happy and delude him into thinking he is still an emporer.

It has been a long time...
It has been a long time since I lasted posted to my blog. This is due to my long days spent posting to a number of websites, all political as everything is totally political in America and will probably remain that way long after I am dead, which does not seem to far off. I hope to last until the next election, 2008, so I can vote one more time, so I can help expel the Rethugs from what is left of our gov't, which actually is now the Popes gov't. I am posting at various sites to help defeat the Republican Party, the political party of death for ever more profits and political power.
I hope to defeat all of the enablers of the party of death, including the Catholic Church, my Church, and the evangelical fundamentalists. Fundamentalist religions are anathema to human life, whether they are Catholic, Islamic(Bin Laden) or evangelical fundies(Falwell, Robertson, Dobson). Fundies are fundies, they are all extreme, radical and dangerous.
Let no one say the right wing Catholic fundies or the evangelical fundies are any different than Bin Laden and his associates; they all kill. The American religious fundies kill our troops, the Iraqi people and the Afghani people. Along with the two fundie American religions supporting the killings are the big American corporations and the Republican party of death for profits. All are a bunch of death dealing scum.
Sites I often/daily visit and post on include: Alternet, Salon.com, Huffington Post are the ones I most often visit. Some other sites I read on a daily to frequent to occasional basis include: Eric Altermans Altercation, Ha'aretz(the largest newspaper in Israel), The Kaleej Times( out of Dubai for Noam Chomsky articles and some Arab view points) The International Herald Tribune, Media Matters for America, Pen, FP Media Reform Daily, Wiretap, Mother Jones Journal, Vote Vets.Org, Progresive States Network, open Democracy, Americans United For The Separation of Church and State(I have joined them) Unity08(I joined them last year) Campaign To Defend the Constitution, The Free Press(Fitrakis and Wasserman) did/do a fantastic job of revealing corruption including corrupt elections in Ohio by the Ohio Rethug party and Ken Blackwell, Ray McGovern's VIPS and about two dozen other sites.
When Dr. Fitrakis runs for any political office I will support him. He and Harvey Wasserman have done a great job of revealing the extent of Republican voter corruption efforts in Ohio, The US intel's forcing the close of Antioch College (a very fine small liberal arts college in Dayton Ohio well known for progressive and anti-war thinking) Gov. Rhodes 'owned' by the FBI (due to his involvement with the mafia) and the deaths of the Kent State students (I'm a grad of Kent State and had classes that evening but had a Guardsmans rifle shoved in my face as I tried to drive on campus, so I snuck on another way and was met by a goup of students who told me about the shootings that took place just two hours earlier) and the efforts by The Free Press(known as the Columbus Free Press during the Vietnam war) and other Ohio groups and all of their efforts to unseat Sen. George Voinovich(Catholic), Jean Schmidt(Catholic) Pryce and LaTourette.
In the past I always voted for Voinovich, DeWine(another corrupt Catholic Republican as is Schmidt) and LaTourette but stopped in the last election. These right wing Bush/Rethug voters will never get my vote again. In the last (2006) election I voted only for dems. I have not done that since the Vietnam War. I always voted for whomever I thought was the best person regardless of political party, but no more. And I worked hard to get DeWine defeated, and he was.
So, more good news, this morning(Aug. 27,2007) Alberto Gonzales(Catholic) resigned as AG. Thank the good God, another warhawk, actually chickenhawk, is gone. Rove just resigned a few weeks ago. But he will most certainly be out in the hinterlands creating havoc and attacking America. My best guess is that he will be working to make another member of the Bush crime family, Jeb Bush(Catholic), who is waiting in the wings for his chance at destroying America and the world for PROFIT and POLITICAL POWER into a prez. That is all the Bush family and Rethugs are good for, destroying and never accepting responsibility for their agenda of death and destruction.
Truly the party of god(their god is corruption and gets a lower case g) and it's enablers are satanic and diabolical. But since Nixon that is what they have always been and Pope John Paul II knew that when he decided to join them, certainly everyone else knew they were consumed by GREED for money and political power. And so the Popes must be consumed by the same things, including dominion and domination over the lives of others, and despite their God given FREE WILL. But then our God given FREE WILL has never meant anything to the Popes, all of whom have been 'moral relativists'.
Dogmatic authoritarians are always 'moral relativists' they hold others to one standard of behavior and themselves to a much lower standard.That is why the Church is replete with gay(sorry gays, I just don't think gays should be priests) priests, uncelibate priests and pedophile priests. And then to make matters even worse it covers for them and protects them and defends them and moves them to other parishes to continue plying their particular form of sexual aberration. In addition the Church attacks the victims, truly amaaazing, and corrupt.
Oh btw, speaking of the Churches obsession with sex and it's vicarious involvement in others peoples sex lives. I came across the writings of a truly God inspired Anglican Bishop, Bishop Ingham, who wrote the most beautiful treatise on sex and love that I have ever read. God must have inspired this good/great Bishop to write such a totally beautiful treatise on that subject. Such a beautiful piece of observation about human sexuality could never have been written by any fundamentalist, Catholic or otherwise. The Catholic Church and Catholics are so sexually repressed, obsessed, deviant and/or warped about sex that they would never have been able to write such a treatise.
I knew sex was a sublime experience that it must have been created by God. Thanks be to God for all his wonderful creations including nature, animals especially baby animals, human babies, plants and what is left of our increasingly decaying and dying planet.
Our planet and our human civilization will die even more when Bushco and the religious right bomb IRAN and turn that country into a sheet of glass just because they are unlikely enough to have OIL. When one is talking about the Bush family and the Republican Party oil and wealth and political power are everything they worship.
I remember in religion class discussing the fact that the Popes always told the poor it was okay to be poor, even a blessing to starve and die, while at the same time the Church hierarchy always associated with the rich and were usually rich themselves.
The Pope should know poverty and the Pope should live in Iraq for a year, walking the streets looking for food and water. The Pope should observe that Iraqi women/mothers are prostituting themselves for food. And when they get abortions the Pope should witness what happens topoor and desparate women and their families.
One HUGE cause of women seeking abortions is poverty, not becaus they are evil. But the Pope just ants to stamp out abortions, no matter how many people, women and men, he has to KILL to do it.
Another HUGE cause of abortions is women and girls suffering from such low self worth that they give their bodies to gain some fleeting and false sense of self worth.
And once again the Catholic Church has for about 1900 of it's 2000 year history been stamping/ treading on womens self worth, treating them as third class humans after men and children. Keeping women barefoot, in the kitchen and pregnant only convinces women that all they are is baby machines and have no other value. When a womans or girls only sense of self worth comes from making babies then that is exactly what they do.
If the Pope truly wanted to do something about abortion he would do something about the root causes that lead to unwanted pregnancies and that lead to abortions. Instead he supports the Republican Party, the party of wealth, but wealth only for itself while the middle class and the poor continue in a downward spiral toward ever more poverty.
Pope Leo XIII, Rerum Novarum 1879, spoke out clearly AGAINST rampant capitalism. But the current and previous Popes are/were tightly aligned with and totally supportive of the Republican party of rampant CAPITALISM.
The US is headed for, in the near term, theo-corporatocracy. But in the long term it is headed for what the corporate republicans truly believe in, total corporatocracy in the endless and greedy pursuit of MONEY/WEALTH, no matter who has to pay the price and no matter how high the price even poverty and death, and that is NOT pro-life, not even close.
Can the current and previous Popes see or look at any of that aforementioned; not one bit they didn't. Everyone only has to look at Latin American countries to see what the Catholic Church has been doing for the last five hundred years and one can see how the Church is committed to poverty for the masses. Pope Benedict you can't have it both ways, you can't continue to promote poverty(it's really not next to godliness) and your hoped for continuation of control over the masses and stop abortion at the same time.
Btw Pope Benedict your wealthy Republican friends will continue to get all the abortions they want and you can't do anything to stop them. While at the same time you aid them in impoverishing ever more people. You Pope Benedict havebecome a handmaiden to the machinations of the worst, most greedy and totally selfish members of our society just as you have done and continue to do in Latin countries when you helped your Republican friends, especially Karl Rove and Dick Morris directly cause the defeat of Mr. Lopez Obrador in the recent Mexican elections. I hope you are proud of yourself and what you have done to continue the poverty in Mexico. And someday, if not already the despair of the Mexican people will cause them to use drugs in ever increasing amounts to deal with the pain of their despair, albeit a fleeting and false attempt, yielding no long term solutions only ever more human degradation.
Methinks somehow Pope Benedict that your supposed to be the servant of God and his children not their slave master. Wow, all I can say is that the Catholic Church is really screwed up beyond belief. ThPopes have sold out to the Rethug party of greed and death.
Just maybe the prediction of St Malachy will come true. And just maybe that is the same promise as the Blessed Virgin Mary made.
PRAY FOR PEACE
PRAY for the END of those who promote death for oil profits and all their enablers.

Thank You Catholic Church
I just read that three more republican lawmakers have been named as guilty in crimes committed under their auspices as republican legislators. This kind of revelation seems to be occurring on an almost daily basis.
To that all I can say, ironically, is thank you Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI for your enduring support of the rethuglikkkan party. You have once more contributed to the daily lives of all americans.
When will you ever learn that no religion should ever be endorsing any political party. Stick to your congregations, you have screwed them up badly enough. Stop screwing up the lives of all the rest of the americans who are not your congregants. I may be a catholic but I am not a congregant so stay out of the lives of the rest of us. You guys are totally guilty of using the republican party to wage your war upon and destroy America, cause the deaths of 655,000 Iraqis, who knows how many Afghanis, nearly 3,300 dead american troops and the maiming in mind and body of some tens of thousands of other american troops. You have unleashed the beast and he is upon us all, including the entire world. To the popes and the catholic hierarchy you have unleashed your demons on the rest of us and we are dying because of what you have done.
You, the catholic church have gone far afield from the message of love that Jesus Christ preached. Your shame is great, beyond any means of calculation; just as before, during and after WWII. Yes you may have saved some Jews but you never should have supported Hitler and the Nazi party in the first place. And you never should have supported Reagan, daddy Bush and baby Bush or the rethug party in the first place.
If you wanted to dominate or destroy America you have succeeded. America is helpless to defend itself against what you have unleashed upon us.

Archbishop Raymond Burke
Archbishop Raymond Burke denounced a Catholic charity for having Sheryl Crow make an appearance because she supports abortion rights, according to the AP. The archbishop resigned from the Board of Directors of that charity and said a Catholic organization that employs performers who endorse a "moral evil" is inconsistent with Catholic teaching.
I would tend to agree with him, especially in the past. But Now Catholicism is claerly guilty in so many ways of hypocracy that He better get far more consistent himself and demand the Catholic church do the same before he throws any stones at others. His use of the term "moral evil" is just one example. The Catholic church is guiilty of so many "moral evils" it self that it has absolutely no room to criticise anyone. Does archbishop Burke think he is George W Bush, who likes the "axis of evil" good vs bad binary dichotomy to judge absolutely everything and everyone in this world.
Well archbishop Burke if you had some personal integrity then you would stand up for America, fair wages for families and at least some acceptance and tolerance of others instead of giving your endless support to the Bushie Republican Party, the party of war-death-kill for PROFIT and world domination. You would stand up for the equality of women in America and not be a part of the Catholic church that has kept women in second class status for almost the entire existence of the Catholic church. You sir would demand that lying Catholic Republicans stop their endless lying for the benefit of the war-death-kill Republican Party.
When you do those things you may have some credibility and integrity. Now you are nothing more than a hypocrite, so typical of so many Catholic republicans. And I will bet that when you vote you vote republican thus providing your vote and support to them so they can go on killing for PROFIT.
No truly religious person especially a Catholic prelate or any Catholic for that matter should be an endless suporter for any political party much less the Republican Party, and you should tell that to the current pope who is just as wrong as the last pope was.
I for one, will not sit idly by while you and the popes and the Catholic church heirarchy do your damnedest to divide and destroy my America. You sir are part of the Bushie/ Rove machine to destroy the Democratic Party and turn America into what I call a "Totalitarian Republican Jihadist Theocracy".
I will not let you and the entire Catholic church end american democracy. You and your ilk have turned my Catholic church into a Republican political organization. You and your friends Falwell, Robertson, Hagee, Dobson and LaHaye must all just love what you are doing to America. You sir should register as an agent of a foreign power because that is exactly what you are, an agent of the Vatican, truly a foreign power.
Jesus forbade it and so does our now badly shredded US Constitution. I hold you and your kind responsible for and guilty of directly causing that damage and all the damage that has taken place in America. Get out of the slime of Republican party politics.
When you have done that then you will have some credibility and can talk to people like me who see our country being dragged under by you people. You sir may be consistent with the horrendous Catholic teaching that has been coming out of the Catholic church since Pope John Paul II put Reagan into the WH and aligned the Catholic church with the Republican party. You may be consistent with current Catholic thinking but you are not in any way consistent with the teaching of Jesus Christ, and that is who I will follow.
Stop your hypocracy archbishop Burke.
While you maintain your hypocracy I will pray for peace.
