D'oh my heavens: Homer J. Simpson is Catholic, declares Vatican newspaper

All I can say to this is how inhumanely stupid the editors of the L’Obserrveo Romano (which is a stupid name if you want an international readership) that is, all it proves is that neither the Church has learned to relate to the international cultures at all. Bishops who can not be consulted during the child sex scandal, slow as molasses when it comes to use of the media and now this absolute demonstration of total ignorance of other people’s culture.What a stupid incompetent staff they have over there at the Vatican, they have no representatives or journalist to examine American culture or does LOR believe they can simply decree who is and who is not Catholic as if it were as infallible as the Pope.

How can you spread a Gospel when the cultures are so foreign, I don’t believe that LOR has a real website.

GLAA Forum: U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips suspends DADT

“To comply with the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Act, Doe must keep hisU.S. District Court Judge Virginia Phillips sexual orientation a secret from his coworkers, his unit, and his military superiors,and he may not communicate the core of his emotions and identity to others in the same manner as heterosexual members of the military, on pain of
discharge from the Army. (Doc. No. 212 ["July 6, 2010, Order"] at 16; Trial Ex. 38.) “

No one is asked to 'comply' with don't ask don't tell, simply 'don't ask, don't tell'. Meaning the government will not ask you about your sexuality and the soldier will not reveal it. Besides how many men can communicate the core of their identity with other men and in what situation will that be done? Are you asking your fellow G.I.'s to play the role of therapist? Will homosexuals have a problem keeping State secrets as well? Further, the homosexual is perpetrating a fraud by joining in the first place when in fact they know the military's policy barring homosexuals, just as the Church has done. The military cannot afford emotionally disturbed individuals who jeopardize their security and mission objectives. "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is not the policy it's the technique, homosexuals are excluded from the military is the policy. DADT is a lot like illegal immigration and should be dealt with in the same way. Don't Ask, Don't Tell or invoke the draft and Do Ask and bar, so that war and warmongering could not go on for ten years as it has in the middle east.

This and the Judge Walker case where the plaintiff also had vague reasons for wanting to be married to his partner which was an emotional release is indicative of the desire to merge with another of the same sex which is a psychological misgiving. The gay question of equality is almost entirely emotionally driven. When we think of the psycohological hinderences that we have frankly over looked in the past, depression as a matter of Prozac sales, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in soldiers which was ignored for years and many others we are only now using the the law to further an emotionally distrubed group who will not claim to be so because of the allaince between the state and the homosexual community, as long as they are willing to work the state is willing to concede their psychological health as a qualification to do so regardless of their true emotional health.

Homosexuals need to get closer to God and not each other. It was David who comforted King Saul with psalms when the King suffered is debilitating depression. "So whensoever the evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul, David took his harp, and played with his hand, and Saul was refreshed, and was better, and the evil spirit departed from him." 1Kings 16:23

The Spirited Atheist: Atheists (think they)know more about religion than the religious - On Faith at washingtonpost.com

This survey was interesting in that it reveals how our educational theory in America really works. For instance, our military puts a huge premium on 'smart bombs' and high tech weaponry but when we go out to Iraq our troops get shell shocked by improvised explosive devices and we have been at war with these so called primitive people longer than we have the Germans or any other European nation.

It was John Milton that said "Those who put out the peoples eyes reproach them for blindness." The most widely published book in history, the Bible which has shaped history of Europe and much of the west can't be read in the public schools for fear of proselytization. Most printed journals (with the brilliant exception of the Washington Post and the Huffington Post) do not have a faith or religious section nor a religious editor's desk. It would seem the case for keeping the Bible out of public school is effectively dismissed. It is necessary for the cultural edification of Americans to say the least. We could also do with more civic lessons and maintain mathematics as a liberal art as well as maintain the status quo dynamic of 'arts and science' not 'math(formula) and science'.

Thirdly, atheist pride themselves on knowledge so it would be to their discredit if they could not answer the questions sufficiently. However, atheist knowledge of religion is not knowledge of God by any means it is a superficial textbook type of education which is in fact not knowledge at all, since knowledge is tactile or palpable. As Sophocles said on action "One must learn by doing the thing. For though you think you know it, you have no certainly until you try. ..." or in the Bhagavad Gita as Arjuna was instructed to do when he was surrounded and at war with his teachers, "fight, Arjuna, fight". It is faith over reason in Christianity, not faith without and without faith one can gain no admittance to the true knowledge of God. Rationalism has just been a way of dealing with one's own convoluted emotions. Jesus spoke even to the illiterates of his day in parables, a making the Bible a spiritual encrypted text, "Faith then cometh by hearing; and hearing by the word of Christ" Romans 10:17.

Our very own Congressman claim not to read the bills they vote on, that takes understanding.As well our best professional athletes probably can not quote stats very well but there is no doubt that they know their sport. Athletes could not participate in sports with a linear form of consciousness.

Even Pharaoh told Thoth the Egyptian god of wisdom and writing when writing was introduced to him, that people will think that they are wise in their knowledge but in fact they will understand less than they know.

Finally, this survey serves as a great indictment against atheist before God, it is quite incriminating. They have read, probably could get no access through pride and abandoned. Atheist pride themselves on knowledge and literature but still don't know God when God can be discerned from every blade of grass.
