Criticism of the Church

If you say that the history of the Church is a long succession of scandals, you are telling the truth, though if that is all you say, you are distorting the truth

    From what I have read, the way that you described the Galileo incident is not entirely accurate.

    Here’s a historian’s explanation of what happened:

      The article you referred to is correct. I didn’t describe the conflict with Galileo accurately enough. Thanks for the catch!

    My understanding as a pcintacirg Catholic, is that love is paramount and can only happens where faith and truth meet in the Eucharist. What I am saying is that Jesus is Present in the Eucharist and He can only be met or should I say received when these conditions met. What I am saying is that the Catholic Church can’t adopt laws that are contrary to the Dogma of the Faith, and then think that people will be able to receive the Eucharist without consequences. I think the whole picture is to save and protect love. I believe that gays should be treated with love, compassion, respect and be given human dignity like anyone else. Segregation doesn’t work, it’s just another word for hate and in this regard those who practice it are a big bunch of hypocrites. If there’s something I hate it’s to be treated different, looked down, isolated, this I think is a really grave injustice. I’m against same-sex marriage. I think people are missing the point. Same-sex marriage isn’t about love, it’s just about sex and it is self-centered. The real love is Jesus.What I do believe that is possible, is for gay people to find a compatible special friendship and this can be source of joy, happiness and peace.
