Robert_Neville...try, try, try to think for yourself. The Church is "infallible"?? Was it infallible when a person had to pay indulgences to have sins forgiven?? Cut me a break, man. The Catholic Church is a mega-corporation trying to protect its brand, that's why it covers up pedophilia. That is also why it gets the simple-minded in an uproar over when "life" begins and contraception and abortion. You get all worked up over that and you can't see the forest for the trees. Quit falling for the propaganda, be a good human being and develop your own relationship with God. Don't have the effrontery, like the Church, to speak for God. That is blasphemy.

Excel..you'd better check your double-wide for a propane leak, because, boy, yo' brains is scrambled! Pedophilia is not homosexuality. How so many of you right-wingnuts can even function is amazing because your intelligence level is just above that of an earthworm.

Well, there you are Catholic Bishops. So worried about paying for contraception that you sue over the provisions of the Affordable Care Act under the banner of "religious freedom". The same "freedom" that you allowed your priests to have with our children. Yet, you see no hypocrisy in your stance because you are above it all...God's representatives on Earth...or so you say. I'd say that's blasphemy. President Obama is a saint compared to you.The Church's days are numbered. The young people don't need a dogmatic middle-man to have a relationship with God. You have a dwindling number of older, simple-minded, folks to count on for your collection box and then lights out. The Church's mumbo-jumbo doesn't play too well in the information age. Don't let the door hit you in the behind on the way to the dustbin.

Vindyack...its not about your right to have a firearm...its about common sense and paranoia. If you live in a world of conspiracy-theories about the government, about Armageddon, about foreign invasions and unrealistic threats and this causes your to arm to the teeth with semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, the issue is your mental health and not the 2nd Amendment. However, if you want a shot gun to hunt or for personal protection and if you have a job where a concealed-carry permit is prudent, by all means have a gun. Trouble is the NRA has too many lunatics (Wayne LaPierre...if he ain't crazy no one is) running the show and too many lunatics as members. Just go down this thread and read some of this stuff...pure lunacy.

Hey "HappyBob, no one presented those remarks as "facts". At its best it is gallows humor and parody. But, it is not far-removed from right-wing lunacy at all...it reflects perfectly on the NRA and on the rest of you conspiracy-theory, government-hating, Navy Seal Wannabees.

"For us to come anywhere close to reassessing our beliefs, it's gotta be one of those deals where a ton of kids get their heads blown off in school and there is one of those big, town-wide memorial services where they read off all the names of all the dead kids and you feel like, wow, that has to be somewhere around 1,000 names," said LaPierre, adding that seeing pictures of all the dead kids in front of the "pastor or whoever is doing the eulogies or whatever" might be a sobering enough visual for the NRA to reconsider whether it should be harder, not easier, to acquire firearms. "And I think the shooter would also have to use around 30 different types of guns in the shooting in order for us to rethink what the Founding Fathers intended when they wrote the Second Amendment."

FAIRFAX, VA—National Rifle Association Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre said Monday that somewhere around 1,000 kids would have to die in a school shooting in order for the organization to reconsider their longstanding opposition to gun control.
"Yeah, that's probably the only way we'd reassess much of anything at this point: 1,000 dead kids, shot up pretty good, lying face down in the school auditorium or something like that," LaPierre said, noting that anything less than 1,000 dead kids would not be enough for the NRA to stop urging Congress to pass pro-gun legislation. "I mean, that's just a ballpark number, but I imagine seeing 1,000 or so body bags being wheeled out of a school and a whole town of crying parents would probably make us reflect on our values for at least a little bit."
"So yeah, more or less 1,000 dead kids," LaPierre added. "Something around there. And teachers don't count."
NORFOLK, VA—According to numerous reports, local 62-year-old Earl Bailey, who owns a shotgun and several boxes of ammunition, is currently the last bastion of defense between the United States of America and the federal government’s full-scale takeover.Bailey, a recent retiree and a proud advocate of gun rights, and is, at present, the only person capable of preventing top-secret forces within the government from striking and forcefully coercing hundreds of millions of Americans to submit to a fascist and brutal New World Order.“It is every American’s right to be good and armed, and that’s a right that should always be protected,” said Bailey, now the sole American protecting the nation from the government’s hidden plot of disarming all citizens, gradually gaining control of the mass media, and installing martial law throughout the nation’s streets. “Our Founding Fathers intended for each and every one of us to protect ourselves from tyranny. That’s what America is all about.”“What happens when the feds show up at your front door and start telling you how much meat you can eat or how to raise your kids?”Bailey, who keeps his gun on his person at all times has reportedly struck dread into the very highest-ranking members of the U.S. government. According to sources, top government and military officials are fully aware that they remain unable to commence with their oppressive, systematic subjugation of the American populace as long as the 62-year-old owner of a rifle exists.“The way I see it, the Second Amendment’s been keeping this nation free and secure for well over 200 years,” Bailey said, valiantly standing in front of his home that is constantly being monitored by CIA agents and elite Special Forces operatives, who are told to maintain a safe distance from the formidable 62-year-old. “First they’ll come for our guns and next…well, shoot, I don’t really plan on ever seeing what the hell happens next.”While the federal government is more than adequately prepared to begin the first phase of its plan of convoying Second Amendment adherents to newly established FEMA concentration camps, high-level members of the Obama Administration involved in the widespread conspiracy confirmed that they have been forced to resort to alternate methods due solely to Bailey’s heroics.“As long as there’s someone like Earl out there with a gun and ammunition, we are unable to carry out our attack on America,” said Maxwell Caufield, a covert military leader in charge of the operation to turn the country into an authoritarian, one-party state wherein the basic rights of citizens are stripped away in order to create total government control. “Try as we did to spread our distorted gun control propaganda—claiming that it would protect innocent people across the country from needless deaths—the man just wouldn’t bite. “You’ve got to hand it to him, really,” Caufield added. “If it weren’t for Earl, you’d be looking at a totally different country.”
