I'm sorry, let me say something nicer which you all can accept, but I cannot:
"Homosexuals are born homosexuals, you cannot convert them"
"Abortion is mercy for the woman"
"The Church needs to be separate from the State and Bureaucracy"
"The invisible hand of the market will save the world"
"The world is heading towards an apocalypse"
When I posted, I was under the influence of two-day discussions.
I want to ask you have you ever listened to a guy talking for two hours about how Catholicism/Christianity is wrong, rejecting everyone of his 30 sins of the church, except one, where I made a mistake.
It all started, when he stated that the Church and State should be separate. I then retorted, that bishops should be in the parlament and that the Polish State should be a Catholic confessional state. My half-serious remark became the reason of a long discussion.
Then he insulted me, asked me if the priest molested me, doesn't the image of Christ in your room molest you, the priests take too much for the sacraments, my relations with priests, the present political situation in our country, political ideologies, he then told me that his father is an avid reader, and has 44 tomes/volumes of the works of Lenin.
That was the first day.
The second day was better because he asked me to explain the Beatitudes and the Golden Rule. I had a gospel of St.Luke in my pocket, which was a relic of my uncle from his time in the Communist-era Army(He even received a reprimand for carrying it) After that discussion, I ate a bowl of soup with a hard rogalik, crying how beautiful it is that God made this soup. The pieces of the rogalik I placed into the soup, in the same manner as my grandfather, made me joyful.
This fast has caused me to radicalise my Faith and become more apologetic. It has shown me my true state.
Forgive me, but the problem with apologetic activity, is that a stupid person(I,me) tries to explain what he doesn't understand and has to resort to his limited knowledge. Karol Wojtyła used psychology and philosophy to explain religion, I used the institutions of Roman Law to explain the faith. In my discussions I used the legal concepts of commonwealth, family, contract law, to explain the faith.
I don't understand theologians and psychologists, and they do not understand me.
God accomplishes his aims through imperfect instruments and every is a handmaid of the Lord.
