    What the....? Ofcourse it matters....These people do NOT own their jobs...If they don't like it then find a different job.

    Nope, I'm going beyond you and I personally. I became a Catholic later, and as a Student, managed to ignore it completely. It was a small part of the day.

    That much is clear.

    The Church, which does quite well.

    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.

    Appearently you don't think that these children, or poor need the Church's help?

    Do you know the meaning of the word paranoid?
    Many people see it as prepared....The charge of paranoia is made often right before the hammer falls.

    No, you didn't. It would help if you knew what a strawman was. You apparently missed the point.
    I know, I can only hope to one day be as smart as you Joe...


    Nope. That's just your dodge.
    What's that, doing that liberal thing of doing exactly what you charge me of doing Joe....Try another one.

    And the paranoid sees it everywhere.
    Oh, so now we are down to name calling...great...I guess this is the point where you start posting that stupid coffeepap smiley and repeating the same thing over and over for pages, and transcending threads to troll, and incite...Sorry, not playin', try that **** somewhere else....Night Joe. I'm grabbin' me a beer, and heading out to the pool to relax, and laugh at your postings.....

    it's pretty simple j. If they could hire those who were of the faith and ministerial, why do they have so many who are not? Reasoning is support.

    What the....? Ofcourse it matters....These people do NOT own their jobs...If they don't like it then find a different job.
    Yu put much stock in ownership. The fact is the job belongs to both. If it did not, there would be no need to hire anyone. As I said, the two are interlocked, meshed, symbiotic.

    That much is clear.
    Yep.

    Appearently you don't think that these children, or poor need the Church's help?
    I never said that. But that's not all the money goes for. I listed the majority of the quote hoping you see all of it.

    Paranoid people?


    I know, I can only hope to one day be as smart as you Joe...
    Oh, you're smart enough. Like I've always told you, you just fill your head with questionable stuff.

    hat's that, doing that liberal thing of doing exactly what you charge me of doing Joe....Try another one.
    Nope. Just recognizing that you skipped that you advanced a point, and I countered it. So instead of addressing the counter, you pretended not to see the forest. A dodge as it were.

    No name calling j. But when people see themselves as picked on all the time, that there's a conspiracy to get them, I think paranoia is the proper word. True, folks like O'Reilly see profit and fame for fanning such fires, sadly, but there woefully little evidence to support such fears. A changing world is not equal to an attack on you. There are places in the world where such fears are real, but not here.

    Caroline Mala Corbin, an associate professor of law at the University of Miami who is a co-author of that brief, issued a statement that said, "It is a shame that in its zeal to protect the rights of religious institutions, the Supreme Court ignored the rights of the religious individuals who work at those institutions."

    Every served? Do those of us who serve lose all rights? Most of the places I deployed to only had armed forces radio and television. We were captives of our government. And you want the government to limit red blooded, patriotic Americans to a diet of Milquetoast. F**k You!

    Let the real Americans decide. Those of you who are pantywaists can step aside. But I have no strong opinions.

    Oh Cat. You know you are a statis. You are probably a closet socialist as well. If nothing else you are consistently on the wrong side of every issue, and therefore on the wrong side of history.

    You do realize her statement is not a court ruling?

    I think i'll take her opinion of the court ruling above yours, especially since it is the only one that makes sense and since she is actually a lawyer and filed a brief in support of the teacher. the court clearly found that the school has 1st amendment rights in at least some situations. Your disagreement is actually silly.

    Why? She is not a judge. She has no training. You're reaching at straws here. I suggest you try this tactic because you can't point to it in the ruling.

    I take that as a complement, seeing how it is coming from your extreme far right perspective.

    And you are? I should take your opinion over an individual that actually participated in the case and has a background in law - and not just hers, but multiple involved individuals on both sides of the issue. The rulling clearly indicated that the religious institution (school in this case) has the first ammendment to protect them from government interference.

    Chief Justice John Roberts wrote a 39-page opinion, taking the time to iterate the Founders’ intentions in the First Amendment to prohibit governmental interference in the internal affairs of religious groups, especially in their selection of their leaders in particular. He wrote:

    The Establishment Clause prevents the government from appointing ministers and the Free Exercise Clause prevents it from interfering with the freedom of religious groups to select their own....

    The interest of society in the enforcement of employment discrimination statutes is undoubtedly important. But so too is the interest of religious groups in choosing who will preach their beliefs, teach their faith, and carry out their mission. When a minister who has been fired sues her church alleging that her termination was discriminatory, the First Amendment has struck the balance for us. The church must be free to choose those who will guide it on its way.
    I realize you'll just indicate this doesn't mean that the school has the ability to enjoy the first ammendment protections, but I figured i'd at least give it a a good faith try.
