Nude statue of Our Lady...
If you want to know what is wrong with the Catholic Church in our time, look no further than your paranoia and frankly... your willful ignorance.
I am a catholic... your view of the sacred nature of the human form and the role that natural process play in our divine dance are totally out of step with the state of knowledge in our world today.
Your anti-intellectual stance betrays your ignorance. Charles Dickens warned of two dangers to humanity in his 'Christmas Carol.' One was 'poverty,' the other was 'ignorance.' Of the two, 'ignorance' was the one to be most feared because it is largely responsible for the other. You can find quotes to support this in the bible too... if you look hard enough...
I know you will shrug this off as a crank email... but you and traditionalist (read... less well informed...) Catholics like you should know that the more 'sane' and better 'informed' among the body of christ have grown tired or your posturing and divisive rhetoric...
You Have Beams In Your Eyes...
Dear Sir / Madam
This is not the first time I have written to you to criticize the way you make contemptous remarks about others. In "The Eyes and the Gaze" by Marian T. Horvat, you include a picture of what you describe as a Buddhist monk (with no evidence to support it) saying "Revolt and hatred is present in the physiognomy of this Buddhist monk." Further down you caption a picture of two children with "the deceitful and selfish gazes of Sicilian gypsy children already reveal a loss of innocence". The "buddhist monk" could possibly be a victim of one of the concentration camps of WWII, which might explain his shaved head. What evidence do you have that the children are gypsy children? Do you have a problem with gypsies? Or for that matter, with Buddhists?
Have you ever heard of the saying "never judge a book by its cover?" Just because a person's appearance does not conform to your ideas of beauty, it does not mean that person is bad or evil. Equating moral worth with good facial appearance is dangerous: one day you may find your own faces will be offensive to some people!
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Matthew 7:1-3
You have beams in your eyes. Take them out. See the world and its people in all its glory, its shortcomings, its failings. You are not perfect, so do not lecture others about perfection.
You're website is an abomination filled with HATE AND LIES!
After reading the review of The Hours posted on your site, I just wanted to let you know that the intolerance and prejudice put forth in the review have clearly blocked the reviewer from seeing the true beauty of the movie. It would be much appreciated when searching for a write up of The Hours if people weren't subjected to a homophobic rant that promotes hate.
I just read your article about how the inquisition didn't happen. As a Catholic, I am ashamed of your revisionist history. Tell me what happened to Giordano Bruno. Burned at the stake for saying that the earth was not the center of the universe. You should immediately post a retraction to the [bad word] you write.
Pathetic. Read some of your nonsense. Ignorant bigots.
As far as the slurs go, I am sure you and your popish followers know all about paedophiles. You have enough of them in your church. Idiots....
Lourdes’ Revelations Were Imagination
Just browsing through the net saw your feature article [on St. Bernadette Soubirous]- do you honestly think that the imaginations of a pubescent 14-year-old girl are in any sense miraculous?
On another web site just seen an advertisement for Yves St Laurent Bernadette perfume. That young lady has generated quite a commercial empire.
Twisted Minded Pharisees
To whom it may concern,
I feel rather sorry for you people... Surely, you would have been scandalized, at the time, to see a prostitute washing a Rabbi's feet with her hair and tears. It is very well known that Jesus came for the perfects, the good ones... He was precisely hated first by pharesees because he mingled with "sinners".
To prove your point, you seem to take pride and pleasure in showing any kind of picture that may fit your ideology (sorry, can't find any better fitting word). And so what?
Careful, he may be contaminated by those "new lepers" he meets?
You should instead have enough faith, love and confidence in a Pope that does not have the twisted minds you seem to have. You are scandalized by popes wearing hats. Big deal, I bet John-Paul 2 is roasting in hell for such a sin! I suppose he should only meet people like you... Surely, you must be amongst the ones who have never sinned. You think you do belong to those very few whitholding the absolute truth that saves...
Jehovah witnesses do so, mormons too. The rest of us catholics faithful to the pope, therefore the true Church, are of course in the wrong, and agents of satan. Definitely I am a sinner... I try however to better myself. I suggest you try to do the same...
If you can't, find pictures of our pope being kind, compassionate and close to people, open a new site and put it on line and try to believe you love the pope. It is the best therapy I can think for you... Love the vicar of Christ...a nice thing you know.
