      Religion has its place as a ladder between barbarism and the first rung of civilization. Once you reach competence you have to throw the ladder away because it becomes a burden and a useless vestigial obstacle, but the ladder is still needed by the billions on the bottom who can't jump to the first rung.

      Religion is the survey course in becoming human. Science is the graduate course. But most people need to take the survey course first -- only maybe 10% of the population places out of it.
      Can I plagiarize this?

              This is where I miss Bob Gray and Timothy A. At least in terms of Christianity, they were knowledgeable without pushing their denominations as the be all, end all of the faith. I never heard Timothy say Lutherans were the best denomination or something like that.

              But this is something I want joe to understand. Catholic is not the best denomination for everyone. Right now, I'm part of a denomination that says not only am I welcome to worship there, I am welcome to participate. Catholic leadership says while I'm welcome to worship, I'm also part of a "rainbow plague" that's "destroying creation."

                Maybe, but he was on record saying atheists couldn't be good people and that atheism was "the worship of nothingness."

                  Virtually every Christian denomination has words of hatred for people not on their Nice list. That's easy to deal with in Protestantism, the whole point of which is an individual communion with God. You just ignore the self-appointed "spokesmen" of the sect and craft your own religion.

                  But in Catholicism the church bureaucracy is the religion.

                  I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. -- Matthew 16:18
                  This makes Catholicism uniquely unsuited for anyone with even a smidgen of personal responsibility, because in being a valid Catholic you're on board with everything the Vatican spews out. You may call yourself a Catholic if you pick and choose but you're a lousy one if you do, by your own Catechism:

                  Having become a member of the Church, the person baptized belongs no longer to himself, but to him who died and rose for us. From now on, he is called to be subject to others, to serve them in the communion of the Church, and to "obey and submit" to the Church's leaders, holding them in respect and affection. -- Catechism of the Catholic Church 1269
                  Stay away from the Whore of Babylon. It produces such great scholars because it has to to try to hypocritically unwind from all the casuistic bullsh-t larded onto it.

                    Perhaps not, but if you weren't a conservative Christian you were automatically a suspicious, or flat-out bad person in their eyes. So I consider any quibbles over "denomination" a rather moot point.

                        Ergo, when Francis pontificates on political issues (such as the Trump border wall), he's not infallible.

                        It's worth noting, while Francis has given lip service to more compassion for LGBT+ folks, he hasn't exactly made sweeping doctrinal changes on the matter. The way Joe sometimes talks, you'd think the guy had singlehandedly issued a landmark papal bull legitimizing same-sex marriage.

                        I never knew this. I vaguely reading homophobic stuff from both of them from the time Obergefell happened, but now that you mention it... **** THEM.

                          Been awhile since we've dealt with Bob "Crown of Thorns" Gray, but yeah he regularly liked to claim Xtians were being persecuted by us intolerant progs.

                              Wasn’t that 5mnMajor’s Schtick? Tim A can be f-ed for plenty of other reasons.
                              If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                                5mn_major said atheists contributed nothing to society, then took the Bible out of context to prove his point.

                                As an Episcopalian, I took him to task on that one.
