    Being like me would be a step up for you.

    Nope, Trump supporters drink the Trumptard koolaid so I wouldn't want to be a mindless zombie like Trump supporters who are incapable of rational thought. They have their heads shoved so far up Trump's ass, they actually can taste his breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You can deny reality all you want, but this is one of the many contributing factors to the plummeting membership in the catholic church.

    People can be Christians without supporting an organization that covers up pedophilia. In fact, I'd say it's a prerequisite.



    Obviously an infinitely powerful being demands women cover their faces or he'll get super upset for having to look at them, you know, because that sounds reasonable.
    That is true for a lot of other religious groups, not just Roman Catholics. They are the one that got noticed, because they had the biggest organization. But it's true of angiclans, Southern Baptists, Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons etc. Other groups might have indivuals, (and every religion, everyplace does), but those groups have been caught doing it systematically too.... to 'protect' the reputation of the church

    I try and understand why some people think supporting Trump, a man who literally takes money from children with cancer, is a good thing, a "step up" as it were. I try to understand how their morals allow them to support such a thing. I can't.
    Supporting Trump, but claiming you are against racism...is like eating a Banana Split every day, but claiming you are against ice cream.

    That would make sense. It would explain why so many don't have a problem with Trump getting his sexual jollies peeping on naked children.

    Donald Trump boasted about meeting semi-naked teenagers in beauty pageants | The Independent
    Four women who competed in the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant also said the Republican used to walk in. Some of the girls were as young as 15.

    Here’s the explanation from the parish website of an FSSP parish near me.


    Do I need to cover my head during Mass?
    Men are not to wear head coverings while inside; this is simply proper etiquette (see also 1 Cor. 11:4). Women traditionally wore head coverings while in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, so when entering the church, they would simply put on a head covering, whether a veil or hat. St. Paul is very clear about women covering their heads while praying (1 Cor. 11:5), but more than this, a woman is a sacred vessel, an ark, as Our Lady is the Ark of the New Covenant. Sacred vessels are typically covered, like the tabernacle, the altar, the ciborium, the chalice, etc., and so in recognition of the dignity of a woman; she covers her head and veils the beauty which may be a distraction for prayer. The policy for St. Joseph parish is that it remains the choice of the individual woman as to whether or not she covers her head.


    FAQ - Saint Joseph Catholic Church

    Again, this is not a commandment, it’s considered traditional practice.
    traditional practise seems sexist

    While it may be slightly off the mark in it's accuracy, it's surely not as far from the truth as you'd like to pretend is it?
