Isn't it funny how none of your evangelical friends are posting about how we should all pray for the President anymore? Funny how eager they were to pray for the pussy grabber who never went to church, but they won't pray for the devout Catholic.

I've noticed a few things post election:

Evangelicals aren't posting constantly about how we should all "pray for the President" anymore.

Also, they have suddenly stopped claiming that "leaders are appointed by God and deserve our respect."

Funny how God only appoints and demands respect for Republicans.

Funny how they only scream about praying for the President when it is a Republican.

Also worth mentioning, none of the stay at home, Evangelical moms are posting incessantly about #savethechildren anymore.

Guess it wasn't about saving the children after all --- it was just about virtue signaling before an election.

Magik in the Catholic Church?

What do you guys think of the magik coming from the Catholic Church? I was a former practitioner of the occult and esoteric knowledge. And after introducing myself more and more deep into the teachings of the traditions of the Catholic Church I feel like I found the ultimate answer for transcendence. What is your opinion?

The church went as far as to threaten torture if Galileo didn’t admit that earth was the center of the solar system, now theists actually have the gall to point to religion as his β€œinspiration.”

Now with all trump has done to undermine science and medicine he wants his name on the vaccine?! It’s sad how little has changed in 400 years.

Leaving the Roman Catholic Church

As per request on another post I am going to share how I defected from the Roman Catholic Church. This post is simply for any Irish people, who like myself were baptised into Catholicism against their will and indoctrinated as children.

Many people are under the impression that it is no longer possible to leave the Catholic faith as the church decided to remove the freedom of formally defecting in 2009. That being said, defection that is deemed "notorious" under canon law is possible. So what you want to do is get in contact with the bishop of the diocese that you were baptised in through email or letter, whatever suits you best. I told the bishop that I was baptised against my will but the most important thing you have to make clear is that you're not an asset to the church. In my case I explained that I've broken canon law (canon 1364 - apostasy and heresy) by being an advocate of atheism, being a member of atheism Ireland and promoting atheism at every possible opportunity. By saying this I was considered an apostate and was granted 'Latae sententiae excommunication'. I was then sent a form of declaration of defection from the catholic church. In this you state your name, age, place and date of baptism, godparents names and witnesses signature. Also, I asked for a letter of confirmation as a sort of badge of honour haha. I'll add the bishop I spoke with was very respectful and helpful.

Hope this helps.

TIL the Catholic Church of India campaigned massively to the censor board and the cabinet in 2009 to get several scenes of Angels and Demons axed, and after the scenes were axed, they blamed the board for not consulting church upfront as they were now coming across as "intolerant" community.

>On May 15 2009, Columbia pictures had scheduled the worldwide release of the movie version of Dan Brown’s β€˜Angels and Demonsβ€˜. On March 25 2009, an email was sent to a group of Christian activists from an organization β€˜The Catholic – Christian Secular Forum (The CSF)’. It explained why a ban should be sought on the movie:

>The movie with its special effects is expected to have a disastrous the impact on the minds of millions of gullible viewers will be disastrous. It will result in a negative image of the Christian community & the Church, aggravating the discord that exists in Orissa, Karnataka & BJP-ruled states and does not harbour well for the future.

>And then the email explained in detail what scenes in the movie were theologically unacceptable to Christians:

  • A Pope who fathers a child by artificially inseminating a nun, claiming both are virgins. The Pope is indebted to Science for this miracle and allows a priest to pursue science & even adopt a daughter.

  • Actions of various Popes with respect to β€˜pornographic’ Vatican religious sculptures mocked, like sculptures of St. Teresa or Vatican’s male nude statues.

  • Lies about historical events, issues and persons, like the Church’s anti-Science stance, Illuminati, Crusades, Galileo, Bernini, CERN, etc.

  • Two Popes get elected, one happens to be the murdered Pope’s son, who is Pope for as little as 17 minutes, as per ancient Roman law.

  • Negative portrayal of Popes, as Murderers, Swindlers or Cheats and Vatican as a den of criminals & schemers for world dominion.

  • Free Masons and the Vatican alleged to be involved in a financial fraud, leading to even the murder of the Pope.

  • Cross, Christmas, Sun Worship, Canonization, Holy Communion… borrowed & repackaged by Christianity.

  • Catholic Church, the Papal institution & election of Popes ridiculed, trivialized & decried.

  • Desecrates religion, incites religious communities against the other & hurts sentiments.

  • Nefarious motives imputed to the Catholic Church, which is made villain of the story.

>In a week’s time this was followed by another mail by the CSF (dated 30-Mar-2009) After revealing that β€˜our protests have already starting bearing fruitβ€˜ and that β€˜the Censor Board says will look at it seriouslyβ€˜ the mail urged the believers: β€˜If we all work together on it and before time – the next month; I am confident the Lord will bless us with successβ€˜.
