I have just seen this BBC News report! Catholics should be questioning a church, which has permitted child sexual abuse by some of their priests to be covered up for so long.
A senior Roman Catholic Cardinal has said that files documenting child sexual abuse were destroyed, allowing offences to continue.
German Cardinal Reinhard Marx told a conference on paedophilia in the Church that procedures to prosecute offenders "were deliberately not complied with".
"The rights of victims were...
Many who say there is no God because science can't prove it actually worship science.
"Let us notice this morning how modern man has made a god of science. It was quite easy for modern man to put his ultimate faith in science because science had brought about such remarkable advances, such tangible and amazing victories. He realized that man through his scientific genius had dwarfed distances and placed time in chains. He noticed the new comforts that had been brought about by science, from...
Malthus wrote "Essay on the Principle of Population" in 1798. He predicted that population growth would lead to starvation and that increasing food production would only increase the population growth until it again reaches to the issue of starvation. Poverty is inescapable and related directly to population growth.
In early 2000 a professor of the University of Texas predicted humans had already reached the carrying capacity of the earth and increasing problems related to population and...
"A new billboard in Chicago encourages people to leave the Catholic Church and “value children over dogma.”
The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s text may not even be the most interesting thing about the ad. It was actually paid for by a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of a Catholic priest… with the settlement money he received from his diocese.
The billboard went up yesterday on the Kennedy Expressway west of Montrose and will be up for another month.
It couldn’t come at a better...
"A high school pre-AP Biology teacher in Kentucky has been accused of promoting Christianity in the classroom, and you don’t have to take my word for it, because there’s video evidence.
Where there are apparently multiple instances of this happening, one particular incident was caught on tape. It began when the teacher showed this wordless one-minute video of the M51 Whirlpool Galaxy in which, from a distance, it appears as if there’s a cross at the center of it. (It’s nothing of the sort.)...
Understandably the world hasn't noticed some of the basics, like the Gospels are an IQ-Morality test; where the Synoptic Gospels are a series of patterns with a testimony to examine, and then the Gospel of John is deliberately made up to test people's discernment.
Now since most have already failed in this world, and thus it isn't exactly fair to condemn ignorant people for not understanding the texts properly...
Is it possible the Messiah by the knowledge given by God, can prove that the...
From a religious perspective.
"Where do most executions take place? In 2017, most known executions took place in China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Pakistan – in that order.
China remains the world’s top executioner – but the true extent of the use of the death penalty in China is unknown as this data is classified as a state secret; the global figure of at least 993 recorded in 2017 excludes the thousands of executions believed to have been carried out in China.
"Islam is not only a religion but also a Deen, which means a complete code of life. Religion deals man's relation with God whereas Deen deals with both with man's relation with God and his fellow beings. Religion deals with private affairs of life whereas Deen covers all aspect of life, individual as well as collective....."
