The intellectually dishonest being caught once more.
A fascinating post from Msgr. Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington wherein he explores the long lifespans of Old Testament patriarchs.
Unbeknownst to him, he reiterates my own theory that the ages should be taken at face value and that the decline in lifespan is a direct result of sin entering the world and slowly causing a physical decay to the human body after an immediate death to the soul.
Sometimes it’s nice to know that your unlearned opinions share company with the learned.
A harsh but solid view at the “mess” created by this papacy.
So, yeah, it’s been a while since I last posted anything and I’m just sitting here (supposed to be doing some homework) and I can’t help but think of a few things:
- The SCOTUS decision
- The rainbow on my WordPress editor/profile view, etc.
- All of the page views since yesterday
- What to do with all the “supporters” of the SCOTUS decision that are in my various feeds
- How I need to up my game as a dad and Christian
On the SCOTUS decision – I flat out disagree and side the Minority. Once again the Court overstepped its bounds and trampled the Constitution. Putting this particular case aside, this is what happens when the 3 Branches forget their roles: legislative is full of wimps, judiciary thinks they’re the legislature and the executive thinks they’re untouchable.
In terms of the so-called “homosexual marriage” case well, I disagree based on faith and reason. I won’t get all deep on that so if anybody is interested check out the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
On the rainbow in my editor – I appreciate that WordPress wants to remind me that God will no longer flood the earth with rain but at least give me the option to choose. So much for all the people who claim we’re forcing our opinions on them. Talk about hypocrisy. (That said their could be an option to remove it but I haven’t been able to find it.)
On the crazy increase in page views – Thank you. I appreciate the sudden interest 🙂
On all of the “supporters” in my feeds – Opinions are opinions. So I’ve started to clean my feeds a bit. It’s all about who’s relevant to me and my interests. So no, I’m not removing all of these persons/groups from my feeds – some are family and friends. I still love them, look up to some of them and will always be there for them.
Nope, I’m no saint either so I guess we’ll see how everything plays out in the future though I have heard that some people’s accounts are being closed on some social media sites due to their differing opinion on the SCOTUS ruling. Interesting to say the least.
On the need to step up my game – I should always be looking to do this.
The pastoral approach to marriage must be founded on truth
· From a little known text by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger published in 1998 ·
Concerning some objections to the Church’s teaching on the reception of Holy Communion by divorced and remarried members of the faithful
In 1998 Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, introduced the volume: “On the Pastoral Care of the Divorced and Remarried”, published by the Libreria Editrice Vaticana in the dicastery’s series “Documenti e Studi”, 17. Because of its interest in our day and its breadth of perspective, we reproduce the third part along with three additional notes. This text is also available on the newspaper’s website (www.osservatoreromano.va) in English, Italian, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.
The Letter of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith of 14 September 1994 concerning the reception of Holy…

We are all guilty of jumping on a bandwagon at some time or another, however, be careful when doing so on the internet.
We’ve discussed before how brands should reconsider the use of Twitter as a promotional tool, since the combination of employees signed in to the wrong account, thoughtless jumping on bandwagons, and followers who know how to take screen shots has damaged a lot of brands. Today’s devastating example of why you should look before employing a hashtag comes from frozen pizza brand DiGiorno, which wandered into a serious Twitter conversation about domestic violence.
