One mention of "catholic" and "sucked off" and the gay and church jokes start flying. :lol:

I know I've been rather self-indulgent and one-dimensional in my stance on here. So it's perhaps worth mentioning that I do also have a very 'straight' approach to Catholicism. I subscribe to and believe much of its teaching - especially at the grass roots, I very much believe that in many ways it has been and always will be on the side of the poor, I think it's a religion that compliments Socialism and I'm a sucker for its art and iconography.

I'm attracted to its beauty and its ritual as much as ever. I'm not, y'know, all about the hell and sex.

When I saw the gold icons dripping from every corner of St Peter's and many other churches in Rome my first thoughts were "Yep, Here's a religion for the poor. "

OK. But I'm going to bed.
Bankers' best guesses about the Vatican's wealth put it at $10 billion to $15 billion. Of this wealth, Italian stockholdings alone run to $1.6 billion, 15% of the value of listed shares on the Italian market. The Vatican has big investments in banking, insurance, chemicals, steel, construction, real estate. Dividends help pay for Vatican expenses and charities such as assisting 1,500,000 children and providing some measure of food and clothing to 7,000,000 needy Italians. Unlike ordinary stockholders, the Vatican pays no taxes on this income

So clear evidence they do help the poor, but also clear evidence they are rolling in fucking money.

My favourite part is when he says the church needs to keep money because all those claims of horrific abuse cost lots of cash.

Turn off all those moments that make you human.

Close off language, ignore the here and now and appreciate that it's simply retrospective classification, revel in the overlap and continuity with others, dissolve the self, and toss aside any concept of dualism for the tattle and nonsense that it is.

You had probably better cancel the milk while you're at it.

Then stick your head between your legs and kiss your own vulva.

I am a fleeting corpuscle waiting to be popped.

I do rather like people who contemplate the concept of 'self'. It's rather nebulous and quite over-rated! :)

I make everything up as I go along.

I'm sorry

Good Lord, man. Get with the times.

Mussolini's mate, the Pope, gives his first Apostolic Exhortation. Check out from 53 to 60.

We all worship ourselves, cobber. Nothing particularly special there.

Even self-despisers hold their own despising in high regard.
Good.
