    Wonder what our resident life-loving catholic expert feels about this.

    Sweet. More stupid religion tricks. And I thought there was this grand alliance between the born-againers and eaters of Christ's flesh.

    Alabamans now calling Missikookaidsippans a bunch of dumb-asses.

    Don't you know Catholics aren't Christians or at least that is what I have been told.

    Seems like a sound adoption policy to me. They're only going to molest the children anyway.

    Why should I want to oppress catholics? Christians and Muslims are doing the dirty work; I'm just sitting back and watching with a lemonade in my hand.

    I missed the part of the article where they were denying Catholic clergy the ability to adopt.

    That grand alliance is not very deep. I had a born again chick tell me to my face that because I'm a Catholic and haven't been "saved" I'm not actually a Christian.

    I almost hit her.

    I'm not sure how you did it but somehow you got Catholics and Homosexuals mixed up.

    You have better restraint then I.

    I ran into a bunch of Bible Thumpers who insisted to me that the Earth is only 6000 years old and all kinds of stuff.

    And the easiest way to get rid of Jehovah's Witnesses that come knocking on a Saturday morning is to tell them you're Catholic. ;)

    We used to play AC/DC's Highway to Hell for them and told them it was our inspirational music. :D

    Oh, I have a much easier one. The last time JW's bothered me, I told them that there was no god but Allah and that Mohammed is his prophet.

    You should have seen how fast they hauled out of there.

    I tell them I'm an aethiest and there's no way I'm converting. The look like a kid you took a cookie from.

    My friend disrobed when a mother and daughter tandem wouldn't leave his door. He said the mother was horrified, but the daughter produced a huge smile. :)

    Wow that's the most bigoted thing I've heard all day! I'm glad that you're so well informed about child molestation. I've always thought it was more of a redneck, backwoods, hick kind of thing myself. Like something people from, say, Texas might indulge in. Guess we all have our little prejudices right?

    By the way I love this line in the article: "There was an agency who was Christian based but wasn't willing to help people across the board."

    Right, because we all know the Christian agenda is to help everyone on Earth. Except for, you know, homosexuals, Muslems, Jews, Hindus, women, Democrats, liberals, scientists, free-thinkers and the rest of the immoral or yet to be saved laundry list that is approved for hatred by the church.

    And sadly, that's not uncommon among the fundamentalist wing of evangelicals. However, that's not universal.

    One of the ushers in my wedding party, a born again nut, told me and another usher that we were going to hell because I am Catholic and becuase he's Jewish. He was hesitant in accepting my asking him to be in the wedding party because he didn't really want to be in a Catholic church.
