As for the poll, I voted no as I agree with Kh. Frederica that it is hard to consider this possibility on the face of 2,000 years of continuous Tradition of male priesthood. I am open to change but I do not think that anything would be convincing short of the Lord or His angels directing us to change.

Even then, we would be told not to trust in visions, that they could be delusions, Satan can appear as an angel of light, etc.  Wink

Have you added Judaism to your mix of religions?  No wonder you need an extra 'God' to sort things out....

My question remains about the poor pigs. They must suffer from agonizing kidney stones if they get too much oxalic acid.

If they are turned into bacon and ham like the should be, they should not live long enough to get kidney stones.  This is one of the reasons that I don't like fasting.  Nobody thinks of the poor pigs.

Scamandrius, if one thinks masturbation is love, one needs recalibrations that I certainly can't offer here.

I said masturbation is how love errs, in this case with regards to object.  Since love is an I-you relationship, when it is replaced by I -me, love is corrupted.

It's not about love in any form; it's simply about feeling good and passing spare time. Believe me, I have a lot of experience with this.

What exactly meant by Holy Russia ?
In the current context, it's a fetishization of the political state that has replaced the former political state in an idealized past that almost existed for a minute a few hundred years ago.

Historically, it's Russians thinking like Americans do now, but with better churches.
