Every Sunday morning they broadcast a Mass. True, or it might be a service from the very small Church of Ireland or another even smaller Protestant church. Public service broadcasting for the sick or elderly (license-payers, though perhaps not the elderly) who would like to get to a church but can'...

Firstly this station is paid for by a levy which no one can opt out of. They do not pay on the basis of their beliefs and no one has a choice once a TV is purchased. Since that's the case the recipient, RTE, has no right to spend an inordinate amount of regular airtime promoting something as incide...

You say that “it is clear that they [homosexuals] do not choose it…” and “homosexuals cannot choose to be heterosexuals”.... sn’t the Catholic Church making gross assumptions in condemning homosexuality? By doing so, the Church is second-guessing God and assuming God’s role by passing judgement bef...

Every subject I display an interest in debating or discussing the conversation invariably ends up with "But its gods will and if you disagree with me you will be burning in the fires of hell when you are dead" or some other such reply.... That is a useless response to your position and you won't ge...

Do you believe that the foundational text of the Catholic faith (the Bible) is truly the inerrant word of God? Yes, but not that every word is to be taken literally. I think I have said already (it might have been in my own forum) that Catholics have no difficulty with the notion that much of the O...

Hi Superstitious, Nice replies there. You seem like a very intelligent and thoughtful believer. Nice to meet one. Thanks but actually there are quite a lot of us. 1. Do you pray? Yes. 2. If so, why? If you mean, do I ask God for things — yes. Why? Because I believe (see previous post) that God know...

Coming from a science view of life, I can't really understand why someone would simply accept something based on no evidence at all. I know. See my previous post answering the questions another member put to me. It has to do with believing (as I do) that there is an infinite intelligence which my f...

Re: Claire Tully and the Crawthumpers

Now a third breast cancer charity turns down model Claire’s fund-raising offer Crawthumpers in the woodwork. No, just political correctness of the feminist persuasion. I never know whether to be encouraged or dismayed by the amount of power that you lads attribute to us, but as far as I know we hav...
