Subject: Re: Scarborough wonders if Catholics are a cult
Lisa, et al!
I mean no disrespect, and at the risk of starting a flame-war about Christianity and other religions...
ALL religions are cults:
cult (noun) - a particular system of religious worship, esp. with reference to its rites and ceremonies.
The Catholic church is *big* into rites and ceremonies. They've got something for every occasion. Even exorcism.
The above definition is the primary definition listed at:
An alternate definition from the same source: a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist, with members often living outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader. In other words, anyone who believes something different from what you believe. I am religious; YOU are a cultist.
Religious beliefs exist (among other reasons) to help explain things that people are unable, or unwilling to try, to understand. Religions exist to control those people through fear. Sort of like Bush, Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, Rice and Wolfowitz.
Franklin Roosevelt once told us that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. We forgot that little ditty.
re: "The Catholics are the only Christian religion not to change or edit the Bible."
Not true. The Bible is in two pieces, the old and new testaments. The Christians/Catholics edited the old Jewish Bible by adding the new testament. And Constantine (and others) made the editing decisions regarding what the Christians/Catholics would see as "the word of God". Emperors know best, right? Muslims wrote their own book, as did the Mormons. Can't have a religion without a book to beat people with. The less sense it makes, the more powerfully it works as a cudgel.

I do not contend that Joe Scarborough is not an idiot. On that point, I agree with the previous writer.
Now all y'all get out there and keep killing each other over who has the best invisible friend in the sky.
Again, I apologize if I've offended anyone. But religious opinions are 100% subjective; no objectivity involved. They are therefore best kept to one's self.
Keep up the good work, Lisa!
PS - People! Send this woman some MONEY! If she goes off the air, all we'll have is idiots like Scarborough, Hannity, O'Reilly and Coulter. And that's what we'll deserve.
Thanks for your input, Skip! You didn't offend me, btw.
It seems to me, if God wanted us to understand the Bible, New Or Old Testament, he would have made it understandable and not the gobbledygook it has become, delivered by televangelists with a bouffant comb over to hide their lobotomies.
I think the emailer Al, in yesterday's edition, was speaking of the New Testament and the cult/offshoot "editing" the words of the NT to validate themselves. And I think he was saying that the Vatican preserved the physical illustrated NT manuscripts, for either posterity or prosperity's sake. ;-)
Strange aside: Two young Muslim Turks I met years ago told me many Muslims believe there is a glowing orb of power in the basement of St. Peter's. Oy vey!
I love this quote:
Religion was created in the days of yore by the rich people to keep the poor people from murdering them in their sleep.- Anon.
Thanks for your PS! Big hug.

I'm Catholic and I have never had an exorcism.

“Prince Charles has ordered a number -- a large number of staff to start commuting to the castle by bicycle to help fight global warming. He says he himself will make a number of changes. He said -- as an example, is what he said, he said, he will now use the royal helicopter less, and the royal train more. Which I think is a great example for all of us. If we all used our royal train more and our royal helicopter less…” - Jay Leno
