Big Changes by the New Pope

Check out the scoop that Ace got ahold of about the new changes that Pope Benedict XVI will be making. It seems he is more friendly to the liberal arm of the church, and outright non-believers, after all...

  • Hammer,

    Take a look at this...

    the issue of pedophilia may not be an issue after all. It will be interesting to see how this view is reconciled with the current effort by some (who are certainly of the same political persuasion) to condemn priests for just such actions.
    I had my first dealings with the APA as I pursued my Master of Arts in Education...and that experience inspired the first glimmer of the idea that it is generally pointless to engage certain people at the intellectual level only.
    The irony is that they just may be right. I say this because I think society often determines what is acceptable or unacceptable for itself and the individual then derives their own feelings of acceptance or ostracism from that determination---a self fulfilling prophesy so to speak.
    Just found this curious and thought you might like to see it.

  • David,
    The APA is a radical leftist organization which seeks to legitimize as much immorality as possible. The vast majority of studies on the long term effects of child sexual abuse show significant negative effects in every manner, from future victimhood of abuse to schizophrenia to substance abuse.

  • Hammer,

    Yeah...I know. About the APA that is. Just think that they have a BIG INFLUENCE on the way our children are taught in public schools.

    About the rest of my comments. I was just musing. Along the lines of...I wonder if the young greek boys who were brought into the homes of elder statesmen as lovers suffered any ill-effects?
    Since their society accepted the practice that is. Was their any negative consequences for those boys? Of course I believe there would be...simply because it goes against both the wisdom of the Bible (jeeezeee...I can almost hear the Bible quotes coming at me already) and against natural law (jeeezeee...I can almost hear the biological arguments coming at me already :).

    You did note, did you not...that this study attributed those symptoms you mentioned to other causes. Bases covered and all that ya know. Ridiculous!
