Ireland Delivered A Hard Slap To The Catholic Church Today by onetrack(m): 7:12pm On May 23, 2015
The people of the Republic of Ireland, once virtually controlled by the Catholic Church, voted to legalize same-sex marriages today in defiance of the wishes of the Church. Glad to see that the Irish people have finally broken the hold that the Church has had on people for the last 1000 years. This is despite the fact that the Church still virtually controls the Irish education system.

The church needs to read the writing on the wall: reform or perish.

What the Republic of Ireland did was embed homosexuality into the heart of their constitution. And in a way that will ripple through their whole culture undecided.

They made a nonsense of the age-long meaning of the the natural family. And all so they could delude themselves that the fiction called "gay-marriage" could actually exist.

Ironically, the institution of marriage is predicated on the true understanding of what constitutes the natural family - so in essence they've made a nonsense of both the family and of marriage.

If they'd wanted to kick the Catholics church' behind, a few public priest de-frockings and converting a few Cathedrals to flats would have been a bit more specific. Not that I would personally counsel that cheesy!

I wonder if they thought they were doing this for everyone grin? Hopefully nations with cherished traditions and a true understanding of both family and marriage won't tread this same path.

What freedom was denied anyone prior to this referendum? Or, what freedom necessitated homosexuality being embedded into the Irish constitution?

Just trying to see if I'll learn anything that will enable me to make sense of what appears to make little sense.

1st of all what's the meaning of TV you always type here.








Religion cum the Catholic church had done alot of harm both both past and present.

Catholic are lobbying and preventing the use of certain contraceptions (condom etc) in Africa ravaged by HIV and AIDS via the grip they had in Africa.


Some Christian denomination refuse the advancement of science and technology eg blood transfusion (jehovah witness)


Catholic cum religious believes are indirectly sexually enslaving people and making them feeling guilty of doing nothing that harm others but act they enjoy ought to enjoy.

Nobody should be surprised at what happened in Ireland. Most Irish people have at least one gay friend or relative and they tend to be lovely people. On the other hand, the catholic church have been actively and aggressively evil for decades. Not a month goes by without some new revelation of some horrible thing they've done in the past.

Remember that Ireland had arguably the worst child rápe scandal and the most aggressive cover up. There was also the horrific amounts of physical and mental abuse that they routine subjected children in their schools and orphanages to. There was the issue of them enslaving thousands of "fallen women" in their for profit "Magdalene laundries". There was their practice of taking away the children of unwed mothers and dumping them in orphanages (many of whom had under-5 mortality rates higher thanstone age societies). There was the 800 baby skeletons that were discovered dumped in a catholic orphanage's septic tank. There was the church encouraging doctors to to cripple women having difficult labour by cutting open their pelvises instead of doing C-Sections to allow them have the huge families the church is obsessed with. There's the repressive anti-abortion laws that lead to one râpe victim to be tied to a bed and force-fed through a tube because for 3 months then forced to have a c-section because she was refused to eat due to severe depression caused by being forced to carry a rápe baby to term.

The church should be happy the Irish haven't chased them out of their country with cutlasses and sticks. Because that's what the deserve.

So what is going to be legalised next? Marriage between mother and son?, dog and man? No disrespect to gay people here but there is no such thing as *gay marriage*.

I asked you this;
TV01:
What freedom was denied anyone prior to this referendum? Or, what freedom necessitated homosexuality being embedded into the Irish constitution?

You - for whatever reason - did not answer directly as asked, I'd appreciate if you could. Meanwhile to your questions;

menesheh:

It's a spiritual mark - ensuring the spirit of death will passover and NL monitoring spirits will go blind when they see my post grin!

menesheh:

That's at best debatable, plus religion has not been/is not the only source of harm to mankind. And it's without question that religion has also done a lot of good.

menesheh:
Catholic are lobbying and preventing the use of certain contraceptions (condom etc) in Africa ravaged by HIV and AIDS via the grip they had in Africa.
The Catholics have a doctrine, they are free to proselytise as are purveyors of every other doctrine. Now, are HIV/AIDS as a result of not using condoms? Or are contraceptives not without their own side affects. Are some organisations not using the ruse of contraception to sterilise African women?

menesheh:
Some Christian denomination refuse the advancement of science and technology eg blood transfusion (jehovah witness)
Firstly, no Christians deny science or refuse hinder it's advancement. In fact, Christian scientists account for as good number of past and recent advances. In as much as JW refuse blood transfusions, that's their right.

menesheh:
Catholic cum religious believes are indirectly sexually enslaving people and making them feeling guilty of doing nothing that harm others but acts they enjoy ought to enjoy.
Catholicism is not by force the last I heard. And this referendum did not give anyone one bit of extra "sexual freedom"

menesheh:
Too many
Please try and answer the single one that is the topic of this discussion.

Cheers

Do you support women's rights? If you do, then it's obvious you are a woman. Now go and get pregnant.
I'm not gay, but as an atheist I can find no reason to be against two people marrying, nor against multiple wives or husbands.

The Catholic Church has richly deserved to be told to piss off by the Irish, and rightly so.

It's very difficult to put a firm number on it, (people lie; and sexual orientation is a spectrum, not a yes/no thing); but it is estimated that about 9% of males is attracted to other men. Basically, if you're in a room with 10 of your friends, then chances are that at least one of you is gay.

I read the abstracts - it does not substantiate the claim.

Homosexual prevelence is more likely to be about around 1.5 to 3.0% of adult populations. Instances of youthful same-sex attraction don't necessarily translate into adult homosexuality - indeed, it does'nt in over 75% of cases.

Orientation is a ruse.

I disagree. I think it is biologically based just like left- or right-handedness.

And (mythical) Sodom was not destroyed for homosexuality: "Sodom's sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness, while the poor and needy suffered outside her door." --Ezekiel 16:49

There is more of Sodom in Nigeria than in much of 'gay' Europe.

The church was not dying in Byzantium; it flourished until the schism of 1054 when suddenly half of the church became Orthodox instead of Catholic.

The Church was barely present in the Soviet Union; Russians are almost entirely orthodox

The Church was not dying in Nazi Germany; they willingly cooperated with Hitler, and they maintained their anti-Jewish position until the 1960s.

I'm not saying that the Catholic Church will disappear anytime soon, but it has lost a great deal of power in Europe over the past 50 years.

5.5 million Catholics were in the Soviet Union. The Atheist Govt tortured and killed hundreds of priests and confiscated scores of Churches.

For someone who talks much, you know too little. Please read how Nazis persecuted the Catholic Church. Read about the 2500 Catholic priests that were tortured and killed in the Nazi concentration camp in Dachau. I don't want to win an argument. I just want you to be enlightened.
