I am not conflicted and I have 2 things to disclose. 1. I am Catholic. 2. I’ve only had one cup of coffee, so technically, no caffeine is running through these veins/arteries.
I was having one cup of coffee before my torture device of choice, the treadmill when I dared to glance at my FB alerts. There before my two eyes read the fine print, my religion opposing Hilary Clinton. I was foaming at the mouth just to read through this bs. Cardinal Ratzinger, letter, blah, blah, “Clinton is pro abortion thus if you vote for her pretty much you cannot take communion.” I am paraphrasing. Wait? What? You want to read it yourself? OK, there it is: “The person’s public unworthiness to receive Holy Communion due to an objective situation of sin.” Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger
First and foremost, I am reaching my boiling point with the religion imposing their views and easily dismissing us to hell if we don’t do what they say. One more thing, the Catholic Church does not have a good reputation on moral turpitude. What about the countless of child molestation cases and sexual misconduct and how those were handle by the church for years, and continue to be mishandled? Are those priest excommunicated? What about the priests, staff, cardinals that knew about the sins against little boys and girls and covered it up? Are they still taking holy communion? What about that point of view? Are they going to hell too?
Ok, you want to go there? Yeah, Let’s go there. Way back in the day, oh, I don’t know let’s pick a date, say 591. False interpretation about Mary Magdalene’s moral terpitude went rampant under the Papacy of that date and were only rectified on a soft whisper in 1969, but the damage had been done.
“The false equation Mary of Magdala = woman with ointment = woman at the well = “loose woman” = prostitute has produced the composite figure Mary Magdalene.” Lucy Winkett, St. Paul Cathedral 2000.
“The man generally credited with sanctioning this piece of Biblical imagination was Pope Gregory the Great who delivered himself of an opinion in 591 in Rome.” Lucy Winkett, St. Paul Cathedral 2000
I think that pretty much the Catholic Religion just plain and simple does not have space for woman in leadership positions. They don’t want them in their churches and now they are telling us that they don’t want one running the country.
Foul Ball, Cardinal, Foul ball. I am with her! Hell Yeah, I’m taking Communion, see you Sunday, play ball!
