Your home for discussing politics, the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, and the principles of liberty.
I like it. Thanks.passionflower wrote:I am not a catholic, but if you want to know what some more conservative catholics ( there are still a few out there ) think about Pope Francis, check out the site called " The Thinking Housewife ".
I really like this website.
Yes, he is.passionflower wrote:Yeah, I know. Pope Francis has been this way for a long time. And speaking of Latin America, isn't he from Argentina?
lundbaek, I had no idea you were pushing 80. Thanks for your long, dedicated service to the promotion of liberty. My own dad is 85. We joined the church almost 47 years ago when I was 11. My dad still talks about how most LDS members are asleep.lundbaek wrote:I joined the LDS Church 57 years ago at age 22. I can still remember the bitterness expressed by some LDSs toward President J. Reuben Clark and Ezra Taft Benson because of their statements on the proper role of government.
Until 57 years ago I was Catholic by virtue of the fact that my mother was Catholic. Both my mother and I, and I suspect other family members shared certain Catholic apostate beliefs of our own:
God the Father and Jesus the Christ were two separate persons,
Heaven was not for Catholics only,
At least some Catholic priests, bishops, and archbishops could be "bought", especially when it came to marriage annulments
The best thing I liked about our local priest is his willingness to umpire our "sandlot" ball games.
