    Christianity would be SOOO much more marketable if it didn't follow the Bible.

      Hi magicmerl. I totally agree. The more I read about this man, the more I keep thinking, "Where were you in the 70s?" Even though I no longer practice, I'd like to see the Catholic Church be more loving and less by-the-(archaic)-rules. I know a few too many people who have left the Church, not because of beliefs, but because of social issues. I think that's a shame.
      Catholicism has never been about Christianity or following Jesus. It's about money, power and the Catholic doctrine. The Pope is a very poor Catholic. Good for him, but I don't think he's a very good Christian either.

          Cool. Maybe if I'm ever out your way, you can teach me to shoot without reflexively closing my eyes? I'll get us some double espressos (not from you know where) and we'll go shoot stuff. (I'm starting to like this idea.)

          Labels are quick fixes. I believe in welfare and foodstamps primarily because I believe in taking care of children, even if their parents fall on to hard times or are complete screw ups. Also because it's cheaper to pay for welfare than prison, so if you feed and house someone, you save money, and maybe you keep someone from committing a crime out of desperation. And lastly, maybe I think that a culture should be judged by how it treats its most helpless members.

          I believe in right to carry because a populace should be able to defend itself, not only from some stupid SOB on the street, but from a corrupt government.

          I believe all drugs should be legal, as should all sex between consenting adults. Tax revenues increase, grey and black markets decrease. Adults make decisions as to what to do with their bodies rather than having to obey a parental government. Police resources aren't wasted on potheads, junkies, and hookers.

          I don't believe in three strike laws because (a) you take discretionary power away from judges/juries, which means we might as well try people in front of computers, and (b) a person with two strikes is more prone to not leave any living witnesses when committing her/his third felony.

          So, liberal? Conservative? Socially liberal, but fiscally conservative?

          I get where you're coming from. This Pope isn't pro-whatever. His stance seems to be "hate the sin; love the sinner." I don't think that's a bad thing.

                We're all entitled to our opinions. If you would like to start a conversation about how horrid Catholicism is and how terrible the new Pope is, I think the Odds and Ends forum would be a perfect place as there is a lot of traffic there.

                LOL - I'd never get past the mudslinging and the vetting. Ms. L, have you ever used a controlled substance? Sure, lots of times. Is it true you've slept with other women and sometimes in a group situation? Sure, a few times. Have you even been arrested for a felony? Yes, but it was reduced to a misdemeanor, then dismissed after an ACD deal (adjournment in contemplation of dismissal). (Note: that felony was nothing, really. In 1974, in NY, "Rockefeller's Drug Law" made possession of anything over two grams of a controlled substance a felony. I was starting a few plants in a window box.) Have you ever had sex in a public place? Do you mean like in the woods or like a bath house? Do freight elevators count?

                I had a fun youth. In this country, it's tough to go into politics if you took advantage of those wild and wacky 60s and 70s. And really, I couldn't keep a straight face and say stuff like, "Yes, but I didn't hallucinate."

                      LMAO! But I don't attend church. I think it's a requirement here to show the constituents how moral you are.

                        Total posts: 377 not counting the last one.
                        • Poster A: 74 total posts, of which 7 were merely insults. Giving poster A an insult to total post percentage of 9.5%.
                        • Poster B: 22 total posts, of which 11 were merely insults. Giving poster B an insult to total post percentage of 50%.
                        • Poster Me (just to be fair): 9 total posts. Amazingly, I was having too much fun watching the train wreck to insult anyone. Wait, there was one post where I basically insulted the whole human race. That would put my insult to total posts percentage at 11%.
                        • Poster C: 118 total posts, of which 14 were merely insults. Giving poster C an insult to total post percentage of 11.8%.
                        • All other posters: 154 total posts, of which 5 were merely insults. Giving all other posters an insult to total post percentage of 3%.


                        Note: an insult in this “analysis” was completely subjective. I overlooked a few sideways insults – IOW, if the post pointed out lots of bad behavior, which indicated that the subject of that post was a douche or a dunce, I overlooked it. I tried to only include blatant, “You are a monkey’s foreskin,” type insults.

                        My conclusion: better to leave that to myself so as not to insult the entire population of the planet, including myself. I hang my head in shame at both my insult percentage, and for getting so many laughs and joy out of that thread. Still, it was almost as much fun as watching a Chihuahua bark aggressively at a Doberman.

                        Whoa - I better go back and look at it again. Think I mighta missed some of the really good stuff!

                            LOL! I think you and I might be in the minority because enough people must've freaked out and reported it to bring the mods out.

                            I used to belong to a forum that was totally unmoderated. Some of those threads were amazing. The administrator would come in and post something like, "I'm not closing any threads. Grow up and don't read it if you don't like it." It's gone now, but it was fun for a couple of years. It wasn't all flames, but when the poo started getting flung, it got flung with gusto.

                            • Granny carts - I have three. One wee one, where the basket is sized just right for one brown paper grocery bag. Third used that for ages as she is seriously dangerous with a real shopping cart but won't stay close if she doesn't have hold of something. Another I brought back from Frankfurt - it was my real shopping granny cart for all that time. That thing has its own heavy-duty vinyl bag instead of a wire basket, and the frame is built so solidly that it could probably cart off a small engine block. I use it for yard-tall stacks of books at the library and homeschool conferences. The third one is exactly as you describe yours, but I will keep it anyway as Third is now 5' tall and has outgrown the one-grocery-bag one - perhaps I will line it with a soft cloth laundry bag.

                                I'm so glad someone else appreciates these as something other than for laundry! You know, once you have three or more of something, you're a collector. A liner sounds like a good idea. Once the weather cools a bit more, the Saturday Market will be within walking distance and I won't be worried about getting that big thing on the trolley when it's full. I'll just roll it home.

                                Every day in every way, I'm getting greener and primal-er.
