    I'm kind of thinking you'd be heated first, actually.

    Members of my family would've given up talking to you ages ago.

    You've just lost a bet, then.

    sac·ra·ment /ˈsækrəmənt/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[sak-ruh-muhnt] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
    –noun

    1. Ecclesiastical. a visible sign of an inward grace, esp. one of the solemn Christian rites considered to have been instituted by Jesus Christ to symbolize or confer grace: the sacraments of the Protestant churches are baptism and the Lord's Supper; the sacraments of the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches are baptism, confirmation, the Eucharist, matrimony, penance, holy orders, and extreme unction.
    2. (often initial capital letter) Also called Holy Sacrament. the Eucharist or Lord's Supper.
    3. the consecrated elements of the Eucharist, esp. the bread.
    4. something regarded as possessing a sacred character or mysterious significance.
    5. a sign, token, or symbol.
    6. an oath; solemn pledge.

    Keep your nudie pictures. It is enough to demonstrate how utterly ignorant you are.

    And I suppose you are incapable of learning from other people, hmmm?

    Your reasoning tells tons about the company you keep.

    Yeah, like I have anything to do with transexuals.

    Military personnel are given guns. Of course nobody wants an unstable person with a gun.

    Priests are evaluated according to intelligence. They undergo something like 10 years of training before being ordained as a priest.

    Oh, and as for child molesters, I think you're quite safe from them. They prefer actual children -- not someone who only thinks like one.

    Transexualism is a personal choice that can only do harm to the transexual.

    How many personal life decisions do you suppose are there that requires a psych evaluation, hmmm?

    Correct.

    It is NOT CONTEMPLATED with the assertion that 'the family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society'.

    It wasn't that hard, was it?

    You wouldn't know. You have an iq that cannot even surpass that of most 10 year olds.

    You mean a HOMOSEXUAL, pedophile priest? You tell me -- since you have at least 1/3 in common with these sort.

    That is a moral imperative as well.

    Too bad you didn't read my post, Nums, my statement was "...the Pope would be real unhappy to hear you say that Communion was a meaningless ritual," and your wonderful definition didn't address the bet in any way. You posted that it was a meaninless ritual and I don't think the Pope would like that.

    You just say that because you are too young to remember Annette on the Mouseketeers program.

    Well, you've had plenty to say to me on the subject, why is that, Nums?

    I see in the paper just this morning that the Catholic church paid out $526 million last year to the victims of Catholic clergy.

    Poor Nums, another cheap personal attack. Why is that?

    Another case of you talking about something you know nothing about. I remember your post #87 on the Pope thread where you said you don't do that. Pony up here, Nums, why talk about trannies when you don't know about them?

    Rather a lot of them actually, why if you were to get one before coming on these discussions sites and talking about things of which you are totally ignorant you might discover why you feel compelled to attack people you don't know for things you know nothing about, hmmmm?

    I like it, Nums! They don't talk about it, which means that you get to read between the lines and decide what they meant when they didn't talk about it.

    This is a great technique, let's see if I can use it too. Well, God didn't mention transsexuals in the Bible so that means that He expected everybody to realize that it was just a birth defect and be nice to them.

    Knowing that you like this technique explains a lot about your posts.

    Golly, Nums, you're on a roll, two unsupported personal attacks in one post.

    Duh uh.

    I said:

    "A catholic ritual is a symbolic act meant to convey a fundamental truth.

    On its own, a ritual is meaningless."

    Do you need lessons on the english language as well -- or do you just need to follow your own advice?

    I'm not a fan of pornography. But I see you are.

    I did? Remind me.

    Would you like me to give you an equally meaningless statistic on the costs on the victims of aids?

    Just the facts ma'm.

    Refresh my memory.

    And they are....?

    It would be an absurd stretch to think that '...the NATURAL and fundamental group unit of society...' includes homosexual unions.

    You can keep this up all day and it still be nonsense.

    You're supposed to be nice to EVERYONE, even transexuals.

    That doesn't mean you can marry them, now, does it?

    You must be farting dust right about now trying to argue an absurd proposition.

    Its called logic. You might want to try it sometime.
