I am shocked beyond belief that you people have the intelligence necessary to log on to this website... simply amazing... Are you really retarded? If so, let me know and I will lay off.

Stop equating YOUR OPINION with the truth.

Why should I believe that the crap you shovel here, your hatred of gays, your hatred of those who wish to have safe sex, your hatred of non-Catholics, is the truth?

So why should I accept that you're right, and I'm wrong? What good reason can you give me?

I hope all your children grow up to be gay.

That's not true. You can find references to the concept of Apostolic Succession, particularly the succession of the authority of the Bishop of Rome from Peter, in many second century Christian documents. The writings of St. Polycarp, for instance.

Only in the Lucan narrative. In Mark and Matthew, there was no separation between Resurrection and Ascension. Mark doesn't even include the Resurrection. Luke, using Moses as his mold for his Christ figure, created the 40-day Pentecostal sequence as a means of highlighting his subtext. The other Gospel writers and Paul show no recollection of any such period, either in person or in early Christian lore.

I have been abstinent all my life. I marry my husband, who, sadly caught AIDS. I catch AIDS. A condom would have saved me; abstinence ALONE killed me.

You are condoning the point of view of the Catholic Church who would deny people condoms. Don't use semantic bullshit to avoid responsibility for what you have said or what you are implying.

You follow the Lord all you want. If His people are lying in His name it should be your duty to speak out. The Catholic Church has been wrong before (or do you think the sun goes round the Earth?) and it is wrong now.

Death and pain. Deal with it.

Also, since the homosexuality issue was brought up can you explain to me how the church decides someone is, in fact, homosexual? I mean, I know of a lot of cases where people are born with indeterminate genitalia (both male and female aspects) and traditionally the doctors will make a choice to use surgery to make them boy or girl. Some of these people end up attracted to the "opposite" sex, at least opposite to the sex assigned them. Are they homosexuals?

You act like abstinence is the worst thing that could happen to any person. It doesn't (or shouldn't) affect someones ability to love and to receive love. I really feel sorry for all of you that believe that is the entire kit-and-kaboodle that love has to offer. If someone is gay, there is nothing in God's law that says they can't live their life together and love each other. The only thing that God's law says is that they must abstain from sex.

You know, there are worse tragedies in the world than someone that can't have sex anymore. Don't you think this time and effort would be better spent trying to help someone who is truely suffering?

I wouldn't be so sure - I thought I saw your house buying a pack of condoms last week while you were out. It was slavering something about 'getting a load of the back door on condo #23'.

This is what happens if you spend to much time on the boards - when the cat's away and all that. I'd go and sort it out pronto if I was you - smite and chastise, it's the only way....

Because they are analagous to the terrible and sick things your filthy religion is guilty of. The Crusades. The Inquisition. The massive and widespread rape and molestation of children by your "holy" priests.

The Catholic Church in America pushed through laws that barred anyone -- ANYONE -- from gaining access to birth control in many states. It took a Supreme Court action to strike down all those laws.

The Catholic Church in America is actively working to continue the current governmental discrimination and oppression against gay people who wish to form life-long, legally protected and binding relationships.

The Catholic Church in America protected pedophiles, moved them to new churches, let them rape -- RAPE -- more children. And did so without remorse.

That's a lot of evil. And all only in America.

The Catholic Church in Ireland took women who were knocked up in their teens and forced them into slave labor camps to "save their souls," forcing them to work for the rest of their lives sewing and doing laundry.

What a wonderful religion you protect. Nothing like those tribes who perform female circumcision, is it?

I would most certainly speak out if I saw someone lying in His name. There was a time in human history when believers and non-believers alike were part of the Catholic Church. But God promised to preserve it for true believers.

Whoa, talk about your red herrings. Did I ever say abstinence is the worst thing in the world? I asked a simple question about how the catholic church decides if someone is a homosexual given my example of those afflicted with indeterminate genitalia. Care to take another try at it?

You mean like someone having to much sex, without birth control in an area where most people are dying from starvation? Yeah, your right, that is worse. (Put words in my mouth will ya! )

For thousands years people thought the Earth was the center of the universe. That doing bad things caused you to get sick. That parental sin caused "demonic possession." Just because a piece of "wisdom" is old doesn't mean it's right.

1) The Religion (The documented beliefs)

2) The People (Billions of people throughout history; people who lived in different times and places than the comfy spoiled couch you call America. Theres bound to be some rotton to the core. I could make the same sweeping generalization about non-Catholics by pointing out crimes that non-Catholics committed on the world. In the end it proves nothing. All it does is justify your bitterness.)

America is hardly a comfy couch when you're gay. This is a horrible nation if you're different than the norm. A hateful, parochial cesspool of scum and fundamentalists. And a lot of that is because of the Catholic Church and its evil, perverted doctrines, which fly directly in the face of reality when it comes to sexuality, sexual health, reproduction and other forms of biological science.

The Catholic Church has been wrong before.

The earth moves, as Galilleo said on his death bed.

The Catholic Church is lying when it says that condoms do not prevent AIDS, and millions would die if the advice was taken.

Why then will you not speak out about this?

Ok. Please point me to the official Catholic Doctrine that outlines that condoms do not prevent AIDS. If you can find it then I will see if I can rally support against the doctrine.

I can't believe you people are dopey enough to think:

"The programme includes a Catholic nun advising her HIV-infected choir master not to use condoms with his wife because "the virus can pass through".

means:

A Catholic nun advised her HIV-infected choir master to have sex without a condom.

I'm still trying to get an answer to my question. How exactly does the catholic church determine that someone is a homosexual? Specifically, how would they judge one of the individuals I refered to who was born with indeterminate genitalia?

Jukebox? Helllooooo? Still waiting for an answer to my question.

Seems like a pretty basic question if you ask me. I mean, given the hell-fire consequences of homosexuality (according to the catholic church) you'd think they'd have a pretty solid definition.

Excellent! Thanks for showing me that you don't in fact "accept what they say without question". If there is an inherent mistruth to every media report, obviously The Osservatore Romano isn't such a reliable source of news - and it's coming from the proverbial horses mouth.

Oh, wait, do you mean that only those media reports which don't originate from the Vatican are full of mistruths? Silly me.

"Blind fool"! That's great coming from someone who claims to believe everything the Catholic Church tells him.

Do you accept whatever the Catholic Church says 100%?

Or are you more intelligent than that, and capable of deciding for yourself what you choose to believe?

If everyone blindly followed the Church we would still believe the world was flat.

The Catholic Church does not care if someone is homosexual. There is no examination that one must take to enter the church. There are merely the words of God and if you believe them you follow them and if you don't, you don't. So, for example, if you're a homosexual, you will be treated like everybody else. If you decide to challenge God's word, it is likely that the members of the church will come out against you. Its that simple. In the case where the doctor chops off the wrong set of genitalia and the child grows up to be gay, then its a tragedy proportionate to all other tragedy's that affect the core of one's lifestyle. But to then say its okay to treat sex as a mere means to pleasure is against His word.
