He's heard denouncement.. just a VERY quietly one done in front of the congregation. I doubt any pastor would go public through the media. Sorta puts them in a spot light and makes the Annual preacher ski trip in the Alps more ackward. I used to go to a church where you had to bring your own fold out chair, it had 4 walls, 2 doors and some stain glassed windows. We learned about god. I miss those days when church was about something more than who has nicer things and what type of starbucks you want.
Wow is it possible that some of the imams did the same thing???? Or are you holding the imams to a different and higher standard than your own minister???? I would imagine that a ski trip with an accused pedophile would be awkward anyway. Just saying.
im not holding any of them to any level really. So I think you're trying to push on the wrong door here. I'v been skeptical of all religions for a very long time, not for what they believe in but how they're ran and the faith being shoved down peoples throats.
Let me spell this out for you. Every religion except the christian faith has some sort of Spokes person. Theres a face that associated with all of them except the christian faith. If the roman catholic church does something wrong the Pope is called and vatican goes on stand by.
Heres you a list created in 2005:
Now go through that list and see how many people you recognize... You're list is going to be VERY VERY VERY small. Thats all I'm saying in regards to your original post man. The catholic church dishes out commands such as :
THE VATICAN FORBIDS YOU TO SEE TWILIGHT
The vatican forbids people to read Charles Louis de Montesquieu - "The Spirit of the Laws" (a work that greatly influenced Jefferson, Hamilton and John Jay).The Spirit of the Laws is perhaps the most important political science book ever written. It was one of the primary sources of the United States Constitution and, through that document, one of the major influences on the development of democratic institutions in Europe during and after the French Revolution.
As you can see when a church such as the Vatican/Roman Catholic has played a role in world history for centuries. No other religion shaped this world quite the same. I'm not catholic by any means nor do I approve of anything they do or say, I feel they still till this day think they rule the world because of the Pope. When in reality no one really cares what they think or say.
This preacher in the article shouldnt be a preacher any longer. The church should remove him until further investigation period. Just understand I care less about the roman catholic church, the Islam religion or the "christian" sanct here in the US. I have my beliefs, I will stick with those I don't need a man to yell at me from a stage to tell me what I can and cant do in my life time, my dad was in the Us navy he did it enough and I learned all I needed to learn. Religion isn't what it used to be and more and more of the world is starting to see the irony that is created by the very same people that lead these religions and branches.
