    Relic Of Two Of Orthodoxy's Saints To Be Returned

    Not to brag, but I had a seat pretty close to the Papal altar for the service. I thought Bartholomew was pretty gracious throughout and the liturgy was nice if strange at times (mixing of rites, etc.). Some people on this board really need to come down from their high horse and at least pray for...

The people who are important are those whose minds can be changed. But this very possibility means that they are also sensitive...

    Cardinal Ratzinger Orders Kerry Communion Ban

    Should we be trampling the hosts instead? Should the RCC tell its members that they can be pro-choice? If people understood what the heck excommunication meant, then they'd get it.

    Cardinal Ratzinger Orders Kerry Communion Ban

    What is that reasoning exactly, Keble? Aren't Christians "called to embue the temporal order with the gospel"? America is supposed to be a democracy and yet the culture of death is thrust on the majority by the courts. Why not take it back? Afterall, slavery was once constitutional, too. -Matt
