    Sorry going on 26 years as a soldier.

    A genuine headline from 2005



    It wasn't true. Some council announced the "Celebrity lights" were being switched on without mentioning the "C" word.

    Beloved Catholic priest found slain in California church rectory - CNN.com

    It starts with little shit and ends up with things like this. The courts have already given us second class free expression rights. The ACA wants to put our missions out of business. Some folks in the public are getting the idea....

    ""He was a really, genuinely warm individual," said professor Stephen Cunha, the chairman of Humboldt University's religious studies department where Freed taught for more than 10 years. "... Kind is the word that comes to mind, sensitive."
    Noting that students at the state university loved Freed -- who was also deeply involved in that school's Catholic student group, the Newman Center -- Cunha added: "This was not some stuffy clergyman. He was very much someone that you could sit down and speak with...
    "He connected with everybody.

    Murder is a terrible thing. You are trivializing it by using it to score political points. Christianity - including Catholicism - is alive and well and thriving in the United States.

    Do you think the threat of huge fines if a mission does not violate its own beliefs is trivial?

    ""a regulatory mandate will expose numerous Catholic organizations to draconian fines unless they abandon their religious convictions and take actions that facilitate access to abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives and sterilization for their employees and students," lawyer Noel J. Francisco had said in appeals to Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Elena Kagan."

    Everyone claims the church aids the poor.

    Hmm. Bill Gates, Microsoft founder, Atheist aiming to spend his entire fortune on philanthropy.

    That's a fact, not a claim.

    I think it has nothing to do with a murder, and that makes your position trivial - and irrelevant - to your bleating whines of persecution.

    Whiny Christians need to grow up! says Archbish!

    " 'Persecuted' British Christians need to 'grow up', says former Archbishop Rowan Williams

    Christians complaining of persecution in Britain need to "grow up", the former Archbishop of Canterbury has said, as he argues feeling "mildly uncomfortable" is not comparable to real suffering elsewhere.
    Lord Williams said religious believers should be wary of complaining about their treatment in the Western world, with those claiming they are "persecuted" making him "very uneasy".
    He added the level of "not being taken very seriously" or "being made fun of" in Britain and the United States is not comparable to the "murderous hostility" faced by others in different parts of the world.
    Speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, he urged those who complain of ill-treatment for their beliefs in Britain to "grow up".
    Lord Williams, who stood down from his role as Archbishop of Canterbury at the end of 2012 and is now Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge, said his perspective had been drawn from meeting believers from all faiths suffering around the world.
    "When you have any contact with real persecuted minorities you learn to use the word persecuted very chastely," he said...."
