    1415 wasn’t the Dark Ages; it was barely even Middle Ages. That’s early Renaissance.

    any organization that calls itself a “church” should be true to the Biblical scriptures, written as a guide, since the days of Moses…..circa 1500 B.C.
    God’s Truth and God’s standard is the same basic standard that God taught Adam, added to and finally set to writing…about 40 authors, inspired by God’s Spirit.
    God is ageless, eternal, and He said “I am God, I change not.”
    What was wrong for Adam is wrong for us….especially summarized in the so-called “10 Commandments”…
    any “church” that teaches otherwise is not of God.

    For that matter, where does God forbid contraception or female priests?

    I’m guessing he’s resigning to escape the coming storm about him covering up all those pedophiles for all of those decades. Shameful.

    It should not be forgotten that as Cardinal, he ran the office more accurately known as “The Inquisition”. I agree with pirate, he’s getting out before even more “hits the fan”.

    In updating one of the Laws of Moses, would you would have your wife ride in the back seat (or trunk) of your car when you go somewhere when she is experiencing her menstrual cycle? Too many of those Laws are for a tribal, migratory society that make many of them impossible to apply to today’s world.

    If memory serves, celibacy wasn’t required until after the time of the Borgias. Something about the Papacy becoming a hereditary position. No son (officially), no getting your son the papacy.

    So where did your God demand clerical celibacy
    I am not and never would be a member of the Roman Catholic Church.
    God sometimes required a prophet to be celibate, but not often. In Judaism, if a man or woman felt that God wanted them to give up “normal” life and serve Him fultime, that was allowed.
    God expects obedience to basic Law summarized in the Commandments given to Moses…that would include married couples being faithful to spouses as they are faithful to God.
    The New Testament Church was given rules by Jesus, and the Apostle Paul wrote many of them, such as not allowing women to teach men in the worship services. That is a good rule to follow until Jesus comes for His Church (1 Thessalonians 4: 14-17).
    God also gave orders to Christian men to love their wives as much as they loved themselves….and to treat wives and children with love, not treat them as second-class humans or chattel. Jesus said that all believers are equal in the sight of God…..but in certain situations there should be positions of authority…the husband/father is representing God the Father to the wife and children; the man is the “head of the house” in marriage. If all husbands and wives obeyed the scripture guide, there would be almost no divorce and less poverty caused by single mothers trying to raise children without the support of the fathers.

    dt: Paul also distorted, or made up on his own, rules he said were from Jesus, who he never met. The “new” church is indeed the “Christianity” of Paul. James said it all better, in just four pages. Paul the misogynist wasn’t any woman’s friend if you go into all that he wrote, without “picking and choosing”. Try “Paul and Jesus” by Tabor.

    Not saying it is right or wrong but in the catholic religion the pope can not make any mistakes in religious doctrine. This does not mean he can be free of sin and be the biggest lowlife in the world . But when it comes to making the rules in the catholic church he cannot make a error. This is the problem with people they think that they can change the rules the rules come from God. If you do not like it find another religion.

    That’s all true, but Judaism evolved over the centuries under rabbinic authority and essentially negated any law or commandment that demanded the death penalty, applying so many proofs and work-arounds that actually executing someone under religious authority became virtually impossible.

    Not that I agree with all that the Catholics practice, namely Celibate Clergy and Mary being elevated to a position reserved for God, but their stances on the issues this strip has commented on are from the Bible and, using that as a reference, are correct. If you want a RELIGION that makes you feel COMFORTABLE doing what you see is right in your own eyes try being a Diest, Pagen, Unitarian Universalist, or good ol’ Atheistic Humanism.
