The Vatican cracks down- on nuns


In case you missed it, a little over a week ago the Vatican reprimanded the churches nuns – and insisted on reform. You see, apparently the nuns are to concerned about the poor, the elderly and infirm, the sick… And not concerned enough about gays and abortion.

The eternal conflict in christianity- Jesus, the prince of peace of the new testament VS the self admitted vengeful father/god of the old testament. The dichotomy we see everyday in America- in our religion, our soiciety, our politics..

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

  1. Actually, Jesus does condemn homosexuality in these passages, adultery being a synecdoche for sexual sin:
    Matthew 15:19
    For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.
    Matthew 19:9
    And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”
    Mark 7:21
    For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery,
    Mark 10:19
    You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’ ”
    Luke 18:20
    You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.’ ”

    By your standards, Jesus did not disapprove of child porn because He didn’t mention it.

    • Oh please. Believe what you wish- as will I.

      But there is a difference between disapproving of something, and condemning it. Jesus, according to your bible, preached forgiveness, love, and understanding…nod discrimination and condemenation (that was his fathers trip…again…according to your bible.
