Kansas City Blogging Catholic Birth Control

Or lack thereof . . . Check Kansas City's top faith blogger attempting to translate one of the many confusing and contradictory moments for The Church from an outsiders' perspective:

When religious rules limit freedom: 7-25-17

Today is an odd anniversary in the history of religion. On this date in 1968 Pope Paul VI published an encyclical called Humanae Vitae (On Human Life) that condemned artificial methods of birth control. Against the wishes of even a...

I suppose it's too much to hope that all the fat, lazy, unmarried skanks would become practicing Catholics. It would save our country billions.

Once again Bill demonstrates his shallow understanding of Catholicism (which of course makes him a perfect contributor to NCR.)

The core of the faith is freedom to choose. But as with all choices there are consequences. The role of the Church, as assigned by Christ, is to provide guidance as to what those consequences are as it pertains to life here as well as eternity. We are then free to choose the will of God or our own. Serviam or Non-Serviam.

It should also be noted that HV has since been shown to have been prophetic. Pretty much every bad thing Paul VI predicted might happen has.

The fact that Bill is KC's "top faith blogger" is quite an indictment.

^^^Once again you show your ignorance by not reading the article moron. Bill clearly said "his inclination to think of the document as misguided means nothing to the Catholic Church, nor should it." But don't let that stop you from your idiotic attempt to slag someone else. It should also be noted that your little HIV comment shows you are nothing more than a mouth-breathing goon. God I hope you're not Catholic yourself because you exhibit none of the qualities of a good Catholic. Judgmental prick.

12:19 Calm down Doofus. 10:40 wrote HV referring to Human Vitae, not what you were gifted by your BathHouse buttbuddies. Sister Severa marks your reading comprehension with a big, fat red F. Tell Mommy ya may need an eye checkup. Stop jumping to conclusions, Jehosephat!

13 years of Catholic education -- with no one to sue -- and straight A's in religion, so I enjoy a pretty good insight into this mindset. Paul had followed John XXIII and the Vatican II -- and was of the old afraid-of-girls generation himself. Fear of sex (especially female sexuality) and the desire to use sex to control are the complementary themes of the Church.

When Paul VI died, Albino Cardinal Luciani -- who had a very "liberal" approach toward both birth control and artificial insemination -- succeeded him as Pope John Paul I. Sadly, in addition to his reformist ideas on sexuality, John Paul I also had ideas about reforming Vatican finances. Less Mafia laundry, as it were. A healthy 60 year old, the Pope died in his sleep after only 33 days in office -- and before he could conduct the review of the Vatican Bank records he had requested! (Yes, just like in Godfather III.) No autopsy.

Perhaps because of the scandal that surrounded the sudden death of JPI, the next conclave turned to a Polish Cardinal who had great PR skills -- and the conservative anti-Communist skills to be a good Cold Warrior -- and who cleverly took the name "John Paul II" -- but who had no interest in reform of any kind, sexual or financial.

HV and its angels-on-a-pin reasoning had no practical impact in the industrialized world. The size of Catholic families had already begun to drop. On the issue of birth control, the Pope indeed had no "divisions" among the educated women of the West. Sadly, it did great damage in the Third World and that continues -- both in population boom and HIV infections. (While I have been unable to locate the Gospel verse where Christ condemns condoms...)

Jesus is fake and the resurrection is a lie. Priests of Christ prohibit contraception then bugger altarboys. Poor countries have high birth rates, first world have low rates. Breederscum countries export illegal surplus children to their non-Catholic superiors. Shameful. Time to sterilize the illegals and tax the Catholicc breederscum.
