Sundry Sanities And Insanities
Chris Matthews says terrorists aren't evil. Someone should ask him how he characterizes Beslan, or those people blowing up mosques and trying to get handicapped children to carry suicide bombs in Iraq:
"The period between 9-11 and (invading) Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn't a robust discussion of what we were doing," Matthews said."If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we've given up. The person on the other side is not evil. They just have a different perspective.Here's a hint, Chris. They want to destroy all law other than Sharia and rule the world in the name of God. It is amazing to me that the loony left can have hysterics about the Catholic church in one breath and announce that we need to understand the child-murderers of Beslan and Iraq in the next breath. I am now moving Matthews to the Jimmy Carter branch of the loony left. What a twit. For the record, I don't believe that people are innately evil or good. I believe that they can willfully decide to do evil, though.
"The smartest people understand the enemy's point of view, because they understand what's driving them."
For an example of anti-Catholic hysteria, see this Democratic Underground thread reacting to the news that the Vatican will not ordain gay priests unless they are celibate and don't support gay culture (i.e. support Catholic teachings):
VATICAN CITY - The Vatican says homosexuals who are sexually active or support "gay culture" are unwelcome in the priesthood unless they have gotten over their homosexual tendencies for at least three years, according to a church document posted on the Internet by an Italian Catholic news agency.
1. But sexually repressed homosexuals like the fashionista Pope are OK?Since chastity is a requirement the Vatican is asking for a commitment to actually be chaste. Glad we cleared that up!
3. "unless they have gotten over their homosexual tendencies for at least three years."Stupid ignorant f__ks! As if you can change your eye color every three years. I'm embarrassed for the Catholic Church.Chastity, sweetie. If they were having wild gay sex the Vatican wants them to demonstrate that they can live as chaste men.
5. Hey VatiKLAN: Get out of my government, stay away from my body and soul.Weird, really weird. The US Constitution grants religions freedom from governmental control. But then, the loony left hates the US Constitution.
BTW, your tax bill is ready and you owe us big time! Stick that in your mitre and pay up before you pray because God won´t listen until you make it right with your fellow man, woman, gay, lesbian, transgendered person and homosexual priest!
KNOW this: Americans will always have this against you and every other false religion until you pay every cent owed going back decades.
AND please stop wearing sheets.
You don't have to be Catholic to think that the Catholic church has a right to refuse to ordain priests who don't support Catholic doctrine. The chastity bit does prevent many heterosexual men from entering the priesthood, so it is not surprising that it will present the same problem to men attracted to men. Unfortunately, there have been some incredible examples of homosexual priests going their own way. Take, for example, the Austrian seminary, in which not only were the students and the faculty getting it on (and taking photos), but downloading child pornography.
As for Matthews, he remains a fine example of stupidity given a platform.
I lost the post so I don't know where it is.
Abdul, you are making a good point. The violence in Iraq is coming from a number of quarters. The people targeting children seem to be mostly non-Iraqi.
