The level of obedience you expect people to have to their church is quite frankly, medieval.
“It is the ultimate irony of history that radical individualism serves as the ideological justification of the unconstrained power of what the large majority of individuals experience as a vast anonymous power, which, without any democratic public control, regulates their lives.”

Why are religious people so passive aggressive? Like, why can't they just go out and say "you stupid motherfuckers disagree with me!" Being passive aggressive doesn't make it better.

uh, okay? I also had a full-blooded sibling who was aborted, for the same medical issue that complicated my mother's pregnancy with me. It's not a trump card and also the rest of your post still had nothing to do with abortion. :?


I will answer this. I was not talking about abortion. That was not the point of my post!!

You've not really asked much of a question - why do people say one thing and act another - is effectively what you're asking, if one strips out the whole Catholic Church bit..

..because they do.

Nanatsu I think was raised Catholic, but there's lots of atheists and also lots of pro-choice folks on NSG. For many of us, the thoughts that come to mind when hearing the word "catholic" is 1. Rapist priests, 2. Opposition to abortion and contraception, 3. The Pope has a Twitter account.


Indeed, I was raised Catholic and as a former Catholic I do see the Church's policies on contraception and abortion to be, well, prehistoric. I can understand the whole stance on abortion (it's a religion thing), but contraception? Not at all.

There's nothing wrong with being a responsible adult. If you're not ready to be a parent, contraception is the wise choice.

I know that, but if a religious person thinks of "Stalin" when they think of "atheist" is wrong. I was one atheist at one point of my life, so I have some idea what the typical young atheists thinks.

Now I'll politely ask anyone who replied to me to edit my posts out of their replies, if that's practical. If we leave the thread all hollowed out, there won't be any "suppression of debate" factor standing in the way of a Mod locking it.

Surely one should abstain from even thinking about the opposite sex until properly married.

I imagine young people will need to start wearing cloth sacks over their faces so as not to even look at the opposite sex before marriage.

And yet the catholic conservatives use the figures of members to justify bullshit laws.
Well, i'll say it again, moderate and progressive christians are enablers of theocracy.

Patriarchy theory is a valid academic theory, not incel tier psychological abuse which maps on to any situation a woman doesn't like and enables them to rationalize a hostility to men, we swear.

I'm not going to provide my opinion on abortion, contreception, or any of the non-religious stuff. My primary concern is, if self-identify as a catholic, how can you not believe in transubstansiation. That's the fundamental belief of catholiscism; if you believe everything else the church says, but don't believe in transubstansiation, you are not catholic, you are a protestant.

Excuse me, but I'll be succinct so as not to waste your time, yet I must ask: how is this trolling? Or do you consider people who disagree with you trolls? Because I must tell you, disagreeing is part of the so called debate you said you were interested in having. So far, there hasn't been any of it.

When you're ready to address the disagreeing points, let me know.

And obedience to a church that systematically covered up child molestation and shuffled off the offending priests to be Someone Else's Problem is good how?
Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.
The probability of one's participation in homosexual acts is directly proportional to one's public disdain and disgust for homosexuals.
If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

If you look at what I said before, that was meant to be preemptive statement for Conservative Catholics that believe I'm a plant, not a topic of debate. Look at my main body of my post, that is what I started this tread for, not four worded "FYI".

Indeed?

Complaining about trolling will help speed you along your way as we will gladly slap you with a warning and/or ban if you keep it up. Knock it off.

Also, please be advised that debate and discussion does not entail everyone agreeing with your take on things. If you are expecting nothing but agreement, you have come to the wrong forum.
