The Pope Continues to Disappoint

Posted by Troy on 1st August 2016 in Current Events

I’m married to a Catholic.  When she asks if I will ever convert, I point to THIS guy.  The fact that I have to accept that THIS guy is infallible basically means that I could never become a true Catholic.  So, what did he do that drew my ire THIS time?

He came out and told Europeans that they could not talk about Islamic violence unless they talk about Catholic violence.

Dude, you’re the Vicar of Christ!  If there’s Catholic violence, you should totally be on top of that.  Hell, you’d practically be responsible for it.  As such, you should be brining Catholic violence to a halt.

Oh wait…you mean violence like the Crusades and Spanish Inquisition?  Yes, we should totally stop that.  Wait…no…that’s been over for like…I don’t know…at least ten years or more by now.  Wait, it’s been done centuries ago?  Oh, shit…well, nevermind.  I’ll file this under “I don’t really care.”  You see, once you go far enough back, it kinda becomes irrelevant.  Catholic violence is pretty much not a threat to anyone at the moment.  Even if the Pope wanted to get medieval and declare a Crusade, I have a feeling the rest of the Western world would just say “Um…no.”

Meanwhile, Islamic violence is VERY relevant.  The Pope wants to have open borders?  Let’s start by doing away with the border around the Vatican City.  Perhaps he should walk the walk and house a few thousand Syrian refugees there.  The Pope is no better than the other world leaders.  He demands the common man take in these immigrants, but the immigrants are NEVER going to live where the leaders live.

Long Live the Constitution!

Why Catholics Supporting Obama are Hypocrites

Posted by Troy on 9th November 2012 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Catholics chose to support Obama over Romney in the past election.  This makes them hypocrites, and I shall prove why.

Why do Catholics support Democrats?   Most of them will tell you that it is because the Democrats help the poor, and this is what the church is most interest in doing.  This is, of course, stupidity.  No, that is not what the church is interested in doing.  Technically speaking, the church is interested in “saving” people.  I should imagine that Jesus would say that it is better to be saved and starve than to be fat and burn in the pits of hell for all eternity.  Besides that, I don’t believe that Jesus would think that the government should steal (take our money at the tip of the sword) to perform “good works.”  No, that’s supposed to come from the heart.

The government is not the place to do works of charity anyway.  When a church feeds someone or when a Christian feeds someone, it is likely that that person will see that it is a good religion and will convert and be saved.  What happens when the government feeds someone?  They become dependent on the government.  Without proper supervision and force, that person is much more likely to become a leech.  You don’t feel guilty about stealing from the government or from a big company the way you do when you steal from a church or from an individual person.  Just common knowledge.  The bigger the entity, the more justified you feel in leeching.  So the church is promoting dependence and enslavement to the government which at every turn seeks to destroy all public displays of religion.

Speaking of which, then you have the contraception mandate.  Now, I freely admit that most Catholics are hypocrites on this and use birth control, and I have no problem with that.  However, the church itself thinks it’s a sin.  By refusing to stand up to the government on this, Catholics have basically told the Pope, “Fuck off and buy us birth control, old man!”  Way to go guys!  And for what?  So that someone wouldn’t have to pay out $10 a month for their own birth control?  Skip 2 cups of coffee.  You’re there!  Downgrade your cable or cell phone.  Boom!  You want birth control?  Allocate your funds accordingly.  It’s no one’s obligation to buy it for you if they don’t want to.  You’ve traded religious freedom for $10 a month.  What kind of Judas are you?  At least he got 30 pieces of silver.  With the way Obama’s destroyed the dollar, that’s gotta be worth a LOT more than $10.  Learn to negotiate better.

Then there’s gay marriage.  Look forward to being forced to accept gay marriage.  They could even force you to do it in your church.  They’ve already proven with the birth control they don’t care about your religious beliefs.  Gays have a right to be married, and they have a right to be Catholic, ergo, they have a right to be married in a Catholic church.  Personally, this issue is not important to me in the least, but supposedly Catholics are against it, but as I said, it doesn’t appear that they are against anything too bad.

Finally, there’s abortion.  So you want to help feed the poor?  Over a million abortions a year.  Do you think the government feeding the poor saves over a million lives a year?  You are net killing people by your political affiliations.  The touted number of abortions due to rape and incest?  10,000.  Yep, there ya go.  Facts and figures.

I have nothing more to say to you.  Reconcile your political and religious beliefs.  At least Muslims are consistent.

Long Live the Constitution!
