OK so those catholic priests are just being Christlike?
I know this is an older thread, but I just love this picture and it fits so well here :)
wow Strega! that is amazing
Hmmm... from the look on her face, perhaps Ezekiel 23:20 is ACTUALLY another old Testament prophecy of the cumming of Jesus.
** the cult of inwardness and subjectivity dominates uneducated sensibilities
Ignorance and arrogance mark xian faith as just one member of a dysfunctional family, the big-4 Monster Theisms -- zoroastrianism, judaism, xianity, and islam. (For the real story about these disgusting near eastern riffs on vengeance, see Norm Cohn. Cosmos, chaos, and the world to come 2nd ed.)To deny death requires irrational commitment to cultic fables (literal interpretations of texts), obsessive-compulsive actions (rituals), and to their illogical defense (apologetics). Founder of xian cult, P/Saul of Tarsus (fl 50-65 CE) spread his eastern asiatic "enthusiasm" (god-in-you) to anti-intellectual, hate-filled masses of the eastern Roman Empire.
His was and is today an easy-to-own inverted snobbery:
Not many of you were wise…; not…influential; not…of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things…to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things...and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are.…1Cor1:26-28 NIV. (This is, as Nietzsche said, is the core text of xian faith, nihilism.)
That is -- We stink, but stinking is godly!Ulitmately what is decisive against xianity is not our good reasons, but a good nose!
