While you’re at it, why not just become an Episcopalian and get it over with?

asdf: This is all about chastisements or as you say, “the now irretrievable Slouching Towards Gomorrah.” And yes leftists lack self awareness.

And that is exactly why I stopped donating to the Diocese of San Bernardino several years ago, a diocese which also includes Riverside County.

This is similar to why the musician sex abuser David Haas’ music was canceled, no longer sung in Catholic parishes.

With all due respect, the Church could remove every piece of Fr. Rupnik’s art and even blow up all of the places it currently resides, but the true problem remains. He (if your reports are correct) is an abuser who remains on the prowl.

I just wanted to address some of the issues involved in determining what a particular emoticon sequence means. An emoticon sequence is a sequence of Unicode characters. An important point to understand with Unicode characters is that the image that you see on the screen is not the same thing as the character. The image you see on the screen is a called a glyph. The Unicode Standard does not define glyph images. The Unicode standard standardizes characters, not glyphs. This is really important to understand in order to know how misunderstandings in communication can take place….

I remember reading the book when it came out from Ignatius Press but my poor memory fails me to the extent that I cannot register approval or disdain. I did listen to the podcast, however, and wonder if there is a bit of hand-waving in Fr. Fessio’s analysis.

If any individual man can be saved by his acceptance of God’s grace (which we must believe to avoid Calvin’s double predestination) then in theory all men could be saved. We are allowed, however, to doubt that probability.

Biden told multiple lies as well. He said border crossing were fewer in his adm vs Trump, said the border agents support him, no troops died on his watch, said unemployment under Trump was 15%, said he was the one to cap insulin at $15, said Trump wants to get rid of Social Security….

So hell is going to be crowded. Satan must be building expanded levels to accommodate all the contracepting and abortion-supporting Catholics. Lots of elbow room in heaven, apparently. I hope I get several acres of prime oceanfront.

I wouldn’t want to be in heaven with the likes of people like Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Biden, Kerry, Newsom, Harris, Schumer, Whitmer, Ketanji, Sotomayor, Kagan… you get the idea. Knowing they got to be in heaven would ruin it for me.

You’ve been praying for a long time. Time to admit it doesn’t do any good for California. There are some things that prayer cannot help. California is one of them. If you’re smart, you’ll get out. I used to pray for California when I lived there. Then I wised up and moved to a better state.
