Catholic Archbishop: If Your Religion Contradicts the Law, Ignore the Law

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2018/12/14/catholic-archbishop-if-your-religion-contradicts-the-law-ignore-the-law/

 

The Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin is telling Catholics that they are not obligated to follow lawsthat contradict their faith.

Far from separation of church and state, Martin wants Church to simply ignore the State.

Concerning the Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy Bill, which goes before the Seanad this week, Archbishop Martin said, “There’s a clear Catholic teaching that if legislation is against the basic principles of faith of people that they can’t be forced to carry it out.

Asked whether this right of Catholics not to obey laws in certain circumstances also included legislation on divorce, same-sex marriage and family planning, Archbishop said: “There’s a hierarchy of truths in Catholic teaching and the centrality of some aspects. If people have conscientious objection it’s a very important thing to remember it. For me, very often social change comes from people who stand up for their commitments.”

Martin’s assessment might make former Kentucky clerk Kim Davis proud, but if everyone chose to follow only the laws they wanted to, while claiming a religious defense for ignoring the rest, society wouldn’t function. Martin’s fine with faith trumping civil laws… but I have a hunch he would be saying something very different if we were talking about Muslims and other non-Christians instead of fellow Catholics.

Thank you for this post. I have read other reports of this. What makes it so much worse is the statement put out by the head of Homeland Security. They claim it is further proof that parents shouldn’t make this journey with their kids and that the parents don’t really care about the kids. There was no mention of the long period of time she was in the custody of the border patrol, who did not even give the little girl any water , even after her father told them they had no food or water for days. Think on it, they did not even give the girl any water! The Border Patrol claims they are overwhelmed by the people turning themselves in and they are in need of medical staff and people to process the refugees. Instead they get military troops to put up razor wire. Again a little girl died in US custody because even after being told she had not had food or drink for a couple days they did not even give her a drink of water. This is on us as a country. Hugs

Badtux the Snarky Penguin

She was seven years old.

Her father turned her over to the U.S. government because they had been without food and water for several days. He turned her over to the U.S. government in hopes they would provide food and water and shelter. Instead, for eight hours they provided nothing. No food. No water. No medical care. No warm bed to sleep on. Just a cage, that’s all, a cage and some mylar “space blankets”.

She died.

Her father had reported to authorities that she needed medical care. They didn’t provide any. They didn’t try to get an air ambulance to airlift her to the hospital. It was not until she was transferred to a station further inland that had a nurse on staff that she got any medical attention, and it was too late by then.

There are people who are celebrating this death. Who are saying, “this is…

Washington Post Added Classification To Accurately Reflect The Proliferation Of Presidential Lies

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 21:33

This is very important information to not only know but to repeat. Keep letting people know how deep , how badly, how baseless tRump’s lies are. He is a self serving ego maniacs that thinks if he says it , then it must be true. He also thinks if he says it once he needs to exaggerate it the second and following times. What pisses me off the most, is this is hidden from most of the people. Even if main stream media covers it , they sugar coat it. At the same time Fox news denies they entire thing. So his supporters rarely see the truth and the rest of the has to slog through his bullshit. Hugs

Bottomless Pinocchios

The Washington Post fact checking reporters had to come up with a new fact-checking classification called the “Bottomless Pinocchios” for politicians’ lies which are repeated over and over again while restating similar fact-pattern misstatements. Their fact checkers’ worst category of 4 Pinocchios was no longer sufficient to address major lies by lawmakers.

Here’s the rest of the story…

On December 10, 2018, Glenn Kessler and Joe Fox of the Washington Post penned the following report, “The false claims that Trump keeps repeating”

Excerpts:

The Fact Checker has evaluated false statements President Trump has made repeatedly and analyzed how often he reiterates them. The claims included here – which we’re calling “Bottomless Pinocchios” – are limited to ones that he has repeated 20 times and were rated as Three or Four Pinocchios by the Fact Checker.

News That Will Drive You To Drink

Want to hear something totally nuts. These people walk among us and they vote. This is what the majority of us are up against. I do not even have words to describe this. I will say this, instead of working to prevent bullying, instead of working to prevent children killing themselves, instead of working toward equal rights, instead of feeding the hungry , instead of giving shelter to the homeless, these nuts instead create a nonsense conspiracy theory to attack the people they dislike. This country needs better mental heath facilities. Hugs

Ol’ “3-Fingers” Crokin is lucky to be alive! Alive! ALIVE! — You see, Hillary wants her dead for outting her for pedophillia and cannibalism and whatnot.

Also, in our new fav conspiracy theorist news, Crokin has snuck back onto Twitter again! Pretty subtle, huh?

My heart breaks. Have we not had enough of this. How can you be so cruel to bully a little child because of their race. I do not know how much more of this I can take and stay sane.
