    The UK media has become just as much trashy and sesationalist as the American media, only the British are able to maintain a thin veneer of aristocratic custom to it. So instead of the American "Jane, you dumb slut" you get "Jane, you uncultured and unintelligent Oxford-educated wench".

    Great Britain has been virulently anti-Papist since the days of Henry VIII. Move along, nothing to see here. I mean, they don't even hang effigies of the pope on Nov. 5 anymore.

But I would have hoped that you appreciate that online debates will naturally lead to disagreement, sometimes heated. End of story as far as I'm concerned.
    Okay at this point I stop.

    The conversation could continue but the delusion offends me too much.

    I don't troll but I also don't predict people's wants and provide additional information which I decided to just hint at instead of illustrate fully unless asked.

    I also provide no special reserve for religion being anything other than a hobby. Not matter how obsessive the person.

    Have fun.

    Red face A Big Ask

    One of the heads of the Belgian Catholics said today that the Church can only be saved by moral courage.

    I felt kinda sad at this. Of course he is right. And there is no finer virtue than moral courage. In fact all the other virtues depend on it. But moral courage is a big ask.

    Pretty damning. If it doesn't already have it, let it perish.


    What a disgusting show of hypocrisy and idolatry this completely unprepossessing man's visit has already become. Just sickening.

    But doesn't he have a nice dress. I wonder what washing powder he uses for that finish.

    Nope. If there had been boos and jeers or deserted streets I'd have been quite satisfied.

    People sobbing hysterically over an 89y/o leader of an organization they probably have no contact with outside of birth/marriage/death is hypocrisy and idolatry. And idolatry is anti-Christian and therefore hypocritical by defintion.
