    Default Good thing Catholicism has deep pockets.

    The Catholic Church doesn't pay property taxes but they sure do pay huge civil damages. Absolutely unbelievable how much molesting was going on and hidden for years and years ?

    Just think, if they had been paying taxes all these years, after all the people they have had to pay off that their priests molested, St Peter's church would probably be broke and have to file bankruptcy. Then they would liquidate their assets to pay off their debt, close their doors, and go out of business.

    Might either of you care to take some time to elaborate on all the good the Catholic church has done or are you only looking for isolated incidents to cherry pick?

    Yeah, that's what I thought.

    Reading you two religious experts is nothing short of entertaining.

    Do either of you ever actually discuss something you have experienced first hand? Honest question?

    "Isolated" you call millions and millions of dollars in settlements worldwide and thousands and thousands of molest victims '"Isolated" incidents ????

    Yeah, that's what I thought.

    Being religion free is true freedom. Just trying to help free the brain washed slaves.

    This is the political forum. I experience politics when I read current events. Every time I vote. More importantly every time I post enlightening political information on here to help educate Tea Party cement heads who have swilled too much Glen Beck Kool Aid!!

    A little humility might do the church some good. Let them say Mass out in an open field. I have no sympathy for the church having to pay out $.

    It's a foggy memory as they had both raided the communion wine cabinet.....Z likely has a thing for Friar Tuck which his analyst just can't get him to come to terms with.......Z can't watch Robin Hood or hear the term "Merry Men" without completely freakin' out, railing against the coorporate structure of the Catholic church.

    That's pretty funny there Old Tex!!!

    Now that you mention it, maybe Friar Tuck, Robin Hood, and his band of "Merry men" living in "Sure wood" forest were all teabaggin' fools

    Thumbs down Typical liberal, do as I say, not as I do!

    Hey Zombit, wasn't it you that suggested that the PRF be a religious free zone?

    So much for that, huh?
