Doofus comments again
« on: January 01, 2007, 12:38:23 AM »
Pope Benedict XVI prayed at a New Year's Eve service at the Vatican City in Rome that 2007 would bring the world "peace, comfort, justice." But he cast a cold eye on some secular New Year celebrations, saying such social "rites" are "often carried out as an escape from reality."

Someone tell doofus that "escaping reality" is also what his "church" is selling.  ::)

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

George, I think this one was the best that you posted in another thread:

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
