WHO CARES?

After reading this story I had to shake my head and say "who cares what you think?"

You are probably wondering why I feel this why. It's simple. The Roman Catholic Church's history makes this story and Ratzinger's "plea" a total joke.

"Pope Benedict XVI denounced the 5-year-old Iraqi war and issued one of his strongest appeals for peace in the country Sunday"
Isn't this precious? Since we are in the "Holy Week" the "head" of the RCC decides to get all peaceful on us.

A few words come to mind when I think about this...Inquisition, The Index, and the Jesuits. Need I say more?

In the 1200's Pope "Innocent" issued a papal bull called Ad Exstirpanda which authorized the use of torture by inquisitors against non-Catholics that the RCC deemed dangerous which included anyone who questioned the RCC.

These torturous acts were only supposed to happen once. So, if the RCC wanted to torture again, they just said that it was a continuation of the first.

The church was not permitted to kill (like burning at the stake) so they forced the state to do so with a threat of excommunication if they refused.

The "Index" of prohibited books (Index Librorum Prohibitorum) was a list of books that the RCC deemed dangerous.

Where are the watchers of the watchdoggies to talk about this one? I say chasing their tails.

So, who cares what the head of the RCC has to say? He and his church lost all credibility when they prostituted the gospel for power and money about 1200-1400 years ago.

And the Emergents want to return to this Roman Catholic Spirituality. How sweet.

I have heard the RCC referred to on more than one occasion as the "Synagogue of Satan." I am with you and could care less as to what the "pope" thinks. How could one ever claim to rule the church, when all it takes is the reading of the Word to know that Jesus is the KING of His Church.

Having said that, what about the war in Iraq? I will admit that I was all for it when the "Shock and Awe" phase began. After watching it drag out, and really thinking about it, I am not so sure now. Should Christians ever engage in "preemptive" war? There is a Christian doctrine of Just War, and I am not so sure that the Iraqi War qualifies as such. The highjackers on those planes ran them in to the Twin Towers, not the Iraqi people. No weapons of mass destruction have been found, and we continue to wage war on a country. Could it be for their oil? If it is, is a barrel of oil worth one life? Congress never even declared the War in Iraq, therefore making it unconstitutional. George Bush and his staff have been caught in over 900 lies concerning the war. So many Christians think George Bush is a "Christian" president..... After watching his comments on Muslims, he can be described as a Universalist at best. The Republicans are going to nominate John McCain, who said we could be in Iraq for the next 100 years if that is what it took.

When are we going to say enough is enough?

I find it a bit hypocritical of America, which allows the murder of millions of babies, to try and morally police the world.

PastorBoy,

Thanks for your comment. Are you saying that Tony might not like this post? :)

dss,

Thanks for all your great comments.

As far as the latter, I smell a little Ron Paul-a-roni in the house...could it be? :)

I will comment tonight on your comment.

DSS,

did you for get that american troops caught Saddam? If you think about it, couldn't he and his henchmen be considered "weapons of mass destruction?" Didn't God during the time of Israel's journey to the promised land use them to destroy nation after nation that had wicked leaders?

As for your comments about our President, whether he is a Christian or not, you would be wise not to talk against a leader that God has Sovereignly put in place. Maybe you could use your time praying for him rather than trashing him in a blog.

I totally agree with your comments about the apostate rcc. God bless!

Hey DT,

Yes, I voted for Ron Paul in the primaries. I campaigned for him and even contributed to his campaign. I was saddened that more people did not really want his platform for America: a return to the Constitution, limited federal government, the non-intervention foreign policy of our founding fathers, etc. Now, we are stuck with no choice. For a Christian, one can never pick the "lesser of two evils" as it is still siding with evil. For the first time in many years, I will either abstain from voting, or I will use the "write-in" option.

I will check back later for your post!

Hey Wade.

In all seriousness, we both know that the "weapons of mass destruction" George W. Bush spoke of were nuclear weapons.

What makes you think the U.S. is God's chosen vessel for destroying other nations? I wouldn't even say that the U.S. is a Christian nation. Our laws don't reflect Christianity. Our lawmakers certainly don't, and most of our churches don't. We allow doctors to be paid for mudering babies. We allow the federal government to fund a statist educational system which is humanistic and atheistic to the core. (And many professing Christians send their children to these godless institutions without a second thought to the effect it will have our their souls.) Our country continues to move into a state of socialism, and the people are either too ignorant or too apathetic to realize it.

The U.S. has certainly not been exempt from wicked leaders. I won't even touch on the Clinton's.

I will let Bush condemn himself here:

We are never called as Christians to blindly follow and accept our leaders. It is my prayer that the Lord would install Godly men as leaders in our country and remove the wicked from power.

Here is a list of lies that the American people have been told:

I challenge you to watch this video presented by an Iraqi woman and see if you can remain unchanged.

The depleted uranium and the birth defects it causes was enough to turn my stomach. If Iraq had done this to the U.S., would we hate them? Would we allow China to set up military bases in America? Why doesn't the U.S. use her influence positively, instead of being the biggest bully on the playground?

I will leave you with this, and I am aware that we are really off topic (sorry, DT). Did you know that we are borrowing money from China to fund the Iraqi War? Think about it.... we are borrowing money from Communist China to pay for the destruction of Iraq. We think that we own their oil and are willing to kill for it, thus violating both the 6th and 8th commandments. All the while, we have our own oil that we could drill in Alaska and the Gulf. Something stinketh.

Dss,

I am working on it now. I am debating whether to post it as a comment or as a post. It might serve as a good debating topic for others as well.

I have been down with flu for a few days so pardon my tardiness.

The rcc is a pagan and syncretistic entity.
The novus ordo papists, that is the current post vatican 2 "church", teaches a socialist/liberal theology.

The pre vatican 2 troglodytes e.g.

http://forchrist-contramundum.blogspot.com/

are theological facists.
Both sides worship the goddess, the uniting factor
Watch for the re-union of the fractionalized rcc including the assimilation of the EO and liberal protestantism, the ecm, and charismania.

Resistance is futile,
Pope Lokutas I of Borg
