    The history of this council is hilarious. It ran almost twenty years. The delegates almost never showed up and instead used the excuse to whore, gamble, and pad their expense accounts, which proved the Protestants' point while apodictically demonstrating Catholicism is inherently better.

    It's also where the Church went nuts and started off Counter-Reformation Baroque, which is more gauch than Dump and more over-the-top than Michael Bay. I mean, what in the holy **** is this?!:

    • As gaudy as it is, I would take baroque over any church built since Vatican II. If you aren't going to give your billions to the poor like your paragon told you to, you may as well spend it like a drunken sailor.

      • One thing I understand about Paul:

        Him being blinded on the way to Damascus and God telling him to basically knock that **** off was a delusion at best. And when he came back saying "do it my way or else," there's little wonder Peter and the other Apostles didn't receive him.

            Congregation votes to identify itself as bigoted.

            Good.

                      I'd say that we should abolish all this superstitious BS and make everyone join the 21st. Without the fear of eternal punishment from some form of deity though, it's likely some percentage of the global population will default to behaving like undomesticated animals.

                        I'm pretty sure the consensus after 10,000 years is that the amygdala portion of the population is incapable of behaving unless they think there's a Cosmic Cop. So keep god for them but don't give them the vote.

                        • Heads up:

                          Proverbs 22:6 says "train up a child in the way they should go, and when they get older, they won't depart from it."

                          Basically, if you go to a generic church on any given Sunday and scan the audience, a good half of them are there because Mommy and Daddy said this what they should be doing. They might ID as Christian, but they're weak theists.

                          And it's amazing how showing empathy and humility will teach you that only an extremely small fraction of them are raging *******s, even in conservative West Michigan. For every 1 raging fundamentalist, I've found 10 genuinely decent people.

                          • Catholicism is going through a crisis tonight, and it's going to be fun to see how the church twists itself to correct this.

                            A catholic priest has been found to be using the wrong pronoun during baptism over his 20+ year career.

                            https://www.cbsnews.com/news/catholi...hoenix-church/

                            The interesting thing is this has exploded and now caused other priests to examine tapes of baptisms performed to which they have also done a similar pro-noun mixup.

                            Some priests have even found that when they were baptized as children, the priest performing the baptism used the wrong words, which nullifies the current priest's status. And every baptism the current priest performed, despite being correct, are invalid.
                            “Demolish the bridges behind you… then there is no choice but to build again.”

                              Oh. NOW they care about getting someone's pronouns right.
