The Bible itself is nothing but a collection of fictitious myths, legends, folklore, and other stuff. If Catholics accept a lot of myth, so too do the Baptists and other Protestants. Most Baptists apparently even accept those pious myths about a 7-day creation a few thousand years ago and a talking snake and a great big flood, blocking out the empirical evidence of evolution and an old earth and demonstrating that they are NOT rational thinkers. All religious myth, biblical or extra-biblical, is fictitious and man-made. So if you want to start ripping into extra-biblical Catholic myth, go right ahead. Just don't forget that you Baptists believe in a whole lot of fictitious myth as well. And to top it all off, all Christians -- Catholics, Baptists, Episcopalians, Russian Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, Copts, Lutherans, Methodists, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Pentecostalists, Hutterites, Amish -- believe in a fictitious and man-made God.

wg,


I've listened to your blather on this discussion for days.


NOw you're blaming your Catholic upbringing for not being able to accept Birth Control or the Morning After Pill.


This objection was brought to you by the Catholic Church for nowhere in the Bible does it support that teaching. These hoodoo rules and made-up sins were designed by men to keep them in a job and have dominion over their "flock".


Now you have a problem with Ron Paul because you claims he wants to tell you what you can do with your body. Nowhere in his words has he said that.


So it appears that your confusion is based on nothing but your own wit and wisdom. Being one that deals only with the "facts", how can you be so easily led by your own misgivings? You have to answer one of the two questions this discussion has posed AND now you're relying on your mistaken theology to bail you out.


If you believe that Birth Control and the Day After Pill is a sin with no proof to back it up, soon you'll be homophobic because it's taught in Church and probably will soon write a book on Creationism because they teach that too!


So why do you pick and chose? Aren't all sins treated equally or is it up to you as per the topic?

And your post nails down the fact you do understand what this topic is about.


Hint: Making it all about you isn't it.


Thanx,

Despite my having posted nothing here but a wisecrack, I think everybody knows what this topic is about.


The fact is birth control has made abstinence a big, stupid joke. There is absolutely no reason for people of any age not to do it as much as they want, as long as they do it more or less monogamously, as a hedge against sexually transmitted disease.


Everybody knows this. The Pope knows it, and that's why he's jonesing about it.


God's got absolutely nothing to do with it, except that She made us what we are -- horndogs.

Hello,



I have two friends who are atheist and I've been down this road 1000x. Instead of writing 5 pages, since this is not the thread, I'll just say you have your belief and I have mine.


Oh, by the way, we get along just fine.



love
