Quote# 33880

Sinners have no place in the Church or in its educational establishments. Sometimes the love of Christ demands we show people to the street. This is a spiritual work of mercy.

And I thought that the Church taught that all humans are sinners.

But pedophiles are perfectly all right.

"Sinners have no place in the Church or in its educational establishments."

Odd then that your Christ hung out almost exclusively with such people.

"Sometimes the love of Christ demands we show people to the street."

Wouldn't want them filthy sinners that you're supposed to be out saving to muck up the religious goings on, right?

"This is a spiritual work of mercy."

No, it's a 'We're better than you so fuck off,' work of sheer stupidity.

Yeah, according to all of the Thumpers I've ever talked to, we're all nothing but the lowest pile of bloody, puss filled rags covered in camel excrement and are guilty of the greatest crimes by birth in the eyes of their God.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

In that case, every church and church-related educational establishment in the world would be empty.

Ah, when the He-Man Wimmin haters grow up.

Mister Spak

Let me show you people this cluebat. This is an intellectual act of mercy.

If you consider yourself to be without sin, why are you in church?

1/21/2008 4:59:19 PM


Without sinners, demons, guilt, and the idea of eternal damnation, you wouldn't have a Church.

Besides, who's gonna tell the local Mafioso they (and their large donations to the collection plate) are no longer welcome.

Well according to Roman's 3: 10 (the KJV even)

"Love worketh no ill to his neighbour:..."

Certainly putting someone out of the street is working ill. It can cause great harm.

Therefore even by Christian standards, this person gets a big FAIL.

Besides, aren't' Christians supposed to believe that everybody is a sinner? Therefore, again by Christian "Logic", ,their churches and "schools" should be empty.

I think if Jesus saw what his followers would become, he'd cry.

Doctor Whom

Sometimes the love of reason demands we show fundies what buffoons they're being. This is an intellectual work of mercy.

1/21/2008 5:35:53 PM

That's why Jesus hanged so much with people like that.

1/21/2008 5:38:38 PM


Um... well, I guess nobody should be going to church, then? Isn't it the doctrine in Christianity that everyone is a sinner, is born in sin and must therefor always seek redemption through Jesus? How are they then supposed to do that if they're all sinners and are forbidden from entering the church? Sounds like they've caught themselves in a very odd catch-22.

1/21/2008 5:47:36 PM


Wow, thats a lot of empty real estate. All churches everywhere, deserted.

1/21/2008 5:51:19 PM


So no one's allowed in a church?
Nice fundie logic there.

1/21/2008 5:59:43 PM


Hard to believe anyone has the gall to say something like that. Talk about having things ass-backwards.

1/21/2008 6:11:50 PM


On a Catholic board, no less? Explain to me, then, why confession booths exist.

1/21/2008 6:15:59 PM

So since all humans sin, then nobody should go to church? Works for me!

I think it was either Abigail Van Buren or Ann Landers who said, "Church is not supposed to be a museum for saints. It is supposed to be a hospital for sinners." It's still buying into the religious philosophy, of course -- but other than that, I thought it expressed the proper sentiment nicely.
