L’Osservatore Romano, Interfering in religious tradition

L’Osservatore Romano, Interfering in religious tradition.

Is this the road that the HHS Mandate has us following? Once the dike is breached is there anyway to stop the entire dam from bursting if we do not repair the fissure before it widens?

    Disturbing story, which I saw somewhere before, in Europe there’s not a chance to stop it.

    On another matter, did you see Jabba’s response on Jess’s last post? I’ve a quite nasty reply sitting in my notepad, which I want to post but would like a second opinion if it’s as offensive as it reads to me. [Yes, I still have my shotgun πŸ™‚ ]

          Yeah it does seem a bit nasty at that. I don’t really understand what he is replying to and not sure what he is saying since Jess made it clear that none of us are looking for syncretism. I guess my question to him would be, “what are you responding to in particular?”

          Theology can be all those things he says if we are dealing with heretics that are seeking the destruction of the Church. But theology is exactly what the name says: knowledge of God. Our understanding of the Revelation is still unfolding: we just don’t think it will contradict any conclusions made with the aid of the Holy Spirit that have been declared part of the deposit of faith.

          He seems a bit harsh and I’m not sure at what.

            My opinion as well, and Jess and I have talked about it as a bit, and I think she agrees as well. I’m going to go ahead and post my reply. A you’ve seen I have my limit and he’s breached it. Thanks for your opinion.

              The last possibility was the last comment was to Tom, which I wouldn’t think was all that rational either. Oh well . . . let’s see what you draw out of him with your comment.

                You got me all screwed up again. You referred to Jess’s last post. I was reading Jabba’s replies there: which were also unflattering. However, now I see why you were upset with Jabba. I went to her previous post and then read your reply — was that buckshot or birdshot you were using? πŸ™‚

                Anyway, it will be interesting to see the comment that brings back.

                You’re probably right. I found him at times even more of a burden to deal with than Bosco as did you. There is little chance of carrying on a conversation with someone that simply wants to yell heresy at every chance he gets.

                That’s my take as well. And Jess is just too nice to really tell him off but, I’m not πŸ™‚

                My only concern was that I was overreacting. I notice that in my anger I misplaced a word but, I doubt it matters much.

                Besides if I remember correctly, didn’t the Pope used to run the Holy Office, I doubt he’d have much trouble with anything anybody (except maybe Bosco) said. Jess says Jabba’s had a revelation as well, maybe so, he sure doesn’t listen for a damn.

    My brother told me that the Germans banned circumcision. Apparently, it’s a traumatic, life-shattering experience or something, which we can no longer permit to happen to poor babies. Even though I knew he was telling the truth, it wasn’t until I read the article above that this event became real. Besides the fact that circumcision has some obvious health benefits, one would think that Germany would never pass a law like this considering their history.

    Some poor Jews in Germany are probably worried about whether another Holocaust is in the future!
