    Secret Feminism Among Christian Women

    Huh? Italians, Irishmen, and Poles are "ignorant"? Where did I say that? All those countries have produced all kinds of geniuses, largely inspired by their Catholicism, which is great for them. As far as the third world, the RCC is great for places like Central America, which would probably be...

    Agreed. I suspect that when Paul talked about women not speaking in church and not being permitted to teach men, he meant it quite literally, and for the reasons you mention. Thing is, I'm not aware of any church, Catholic, Protestant, or non-Niceans like the JWs and Mormons who actually follow...

    Yes, I'd already understood that you're a huge fan.

    Nothing inspires you like Catholicism.

    Secret Feminism Among Christian Women

    I have little experience with mainstream Protestant denominations, but do they really disregard Mary? Or are you saying that they don't pray to her? I grew up in a rather small denomination that I can't name as much as I'd like to because it would go a long way towards doxxing me. We loved...

    The old "we have pretty buildings, therefore we are right" argument.

    Explanation of nightly fireworks

    Interesting. I don't 100% reject the idea. It might be a good strategic move on the part of the police. Regardless, they should get used to it as the country becomes more Mexican and Central American, because as I noted above, fireworks at all hours of the night is a normal thing in those parts...

    Beautiful. Didn't know we have birds this colorful in the US. Looks like something from the tropics.

    Explanation of nightly fireworks

    This obviously has something to do with the current unrest, but that said fireworks at all hours of the night is a normal thing in some parts of the world. In my wife's country in Central America it's common for someone to shoot off bottle rockets and M80s under your window at 3am or 4am...

    Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested this morning.

    I don't know for sure. I was just assuming the other poster's claim that she returned from France was correct.

    Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested this morning.

    Yes, it's incredible that she came back. At least Roman Polanski has had the brains to stay in Europe.

    This is what I've been trying to say, you just said it better.

    I do not believe that England rejected Papal supremacy during Anglo-Saxon times. I doubt it for Ireland too, but I'm more fuzzy on that. The Anglo-Saxons were converted by missionaries sent from Rome and the Bishop of Canterbury made visits to the Bishop of Rome, not Constantinople. If I get...

    I see what you're saying, but if there was really just one church until 1054, why not say Anglo-Saxon England was Catholic instead of Orthodox? It makes far more sense, since England is in the West and the Anglo-Saxons were converted by missionaries sent by Rome. Unless you see Orthodoxy as the...

    Secret Feminism Among Christian Women

    Basically, England is a western country and the first missionaries to the Anglo-Saxons were sent out from Rome. The bishops of Canterbury acknowledged the Bishop of Rome as the head of the church and even journeyed to Rome to meet with him from time to time, a massive undertaking in those days...
