I agree with your post to an almost unfathomable degree. My agreement with it borders upon being uncircumscribable.ialmisry said:The Truth does not depend on your agreement.Volnutt said:No, I see that. I just don't agree that we're talking about vice in this case.ialmisry said:you missed where they did not go around naked or eat manure cakes advocating for temple prostitution and starving the poor, but speaking out against vice.Volnutt said:Something tells me that that's been blown out of proportion in the reporting. But even so, transgressive behavior has its uses to challenge injustice (see, Isaiah walking around naked, Ezekiel eating bread cooked using dung fires, etc.)
Which is why she never got into dogmatizing on the nitty gritty of the physical sciences. God chose not to reveal such things, but let man explore instead, and the Church took her cue from His silence (that the Scholastics tried to fill it in is one of their original errors).Volnutt said:Yes, but the Church does care telling the truth about reality.ialmisry said:I don't have time to answer the rest of your tirades, but the idiocy of this caught my eye and cried out for a response.Volnutt said:Just like the Church has accepted that the Saints (Old and New Testament) of the past could be wrong about the shape of the Earth or the makeup of the solar system (or any number of other things), so it should be able to accept that they were wrong about homosexuality. It's not a fault to just be wrong about something because of the time you live in.
The Church does not care about the heliocentric versus geocentric universe, a flat earth versus a round or oblong one, or any number of other things that depend on advances sciences etc. for verification. She cares a lot about the nature of marriage and preserving it as its Creator in the flesh described it, and knowledge to verify that lay within immediate reach eternally of every society of men.
fixed that for you.Volnutt said:And the
truthlie is that modern homosexuality is very different from its ancient/pre-modern variety
No, we find the same crap as was then, and as is seen now. Nothing new under the Sun, as Scripture attests.
Scripture has no expiration date.Volnutt said:and we only have condemnations of the former.
you want to guzzle down and swallow what John Money put in the Kool Aid, that's your choice (and NAMBLA will welcome you). Don't try cramming it down our throats.Volnutt said:Get over it.
Woe be unto the man who reads the Catholic Encyclopedia, for he shall be bored to the point of apoplexy by the myriad unfounded laudations written to bestow unwarranted honor and unjustified dignity upon the Schoolmen, laudations which proceed relentlessly and unceasingly, without purpose or end, almost as though I were guilty of writing them (let the seasoned OCnetter understand).
