Having said that... if you subtract the date of the last ecumenical council (787) from the date that Constantinople fell (1453), you get the number 666. Beware!  8)

You've been wrong about several things in this thread and you are wrong here as well.

You're certainly entitled to that opinion, though it doesn't become right because it came from your keyboard.

That breastfeeding thread is the gift that keeps on giving.  8)

Now here is a little advice to you, if you find yourself flushed and in a little priapic predicament when you see such a woman nurse her baby in public without covering her breasts, I suggest you propel your priapic self to the nearest bathroom and when you are done flashing hope you take the time to look at your reflection on the mirror and reflect enough to blush.

Indeed. Hiwot is wonderful! However, the use of "priapic" twice in one sentence negated the force of the use of a wonderful word. (Sorry for channeling my inner Orthonorm  ;))

great quote against torture:
The real problem with this issue is that when you allow torture, then you have lowered your previous standards that have been fought and died for previously. The majority of industrialized countries all agreed upon certain moral limits and they were signed by all the leaders.

If then later, when it is convenient for you , you decide to ignore that then you open the door for chaos, that we stood for the human rights of all before means nothing now,you can never point at others and accuse them of being morally bankrupt .

Engaging in heterosexual sex is an act of homosexuality. And it is never two people engaging in sex, it is three. I would say it is reflexive on gratifying our unconscious desires and perversions.

Every eligible man known to St. Basil was pressured into becoming a bishop. This is how we know the early Church did not have women bishops. If it did, St. Basil would've had his sister made a bishop as well.

The Roman Catholic Church seems to be trapped in a 1970s nightmare.

Exactly what I was thinking. People often accuse them of being trapped in the Middle Ages... it might be better to say they are trapped by the middle aged.
