    It all depends on the person.

    Yea, I used to work for a guy in his 80's that owned a house with a pond in the backyard, maybe a half acre pond, and he would cut his own grass with a push mower, and when he got to the pond he would push it down the edges til it touched the water and pulled it back up to cut the grass, on a very steep incline, lol. Anyone that's ever push mowed around a steep pond or steep ditch knows how much work that can be.

    My step great grandmother jogged daily well into her late 90's then dropped dead at 99.

    Can you use "pope" as an adverb? "to Pope"?

    I'd think that was a grammatical error, or sacrilige, or something like that.

    Poping popes pope popely.

    Might as well make it an adverb too.

    A true, and devoit catholic believes that a miracle happens every communion, in which the wine truly becomes the blood of Christ, upon consumption by the faithful, and that the bread truly becomes the flesh of Christ, when consumed by the faithful.

    Ergo, all true, devoted Catholics....




    Are cannibals.





    I kid. Sort of.


    I think the largest issue facing the Catholic "faith" today is that the majority of Catholics know less about their religion than they know about Dancing with the Stars.

    Yes, which I would argue is associated with a deterioration of the sacred at the Mass.

    Listen, fact of the matter is, Catholics are "less catholic" because....Catholicism is failing to change with the times. That's reality. Leviticus? Gonna have to change, I'm sorry to say. Or be interpreted differently than it has been for the past thousand years or so. Job? Not jiving too well with today's parents. Noah's Ark? Peta has issues with any god that would kill so many animals, regardless of the issue. The old testament is just that...old and out dated. But it's the word of god, and therefor, infalible, which is the stance the Catholic church has taken, more so than the other judeo christian denominations. It's why Martin Luther left in the first place.
