Post Husbands and fathers in the image of Christ...

Pope John Paul II says in Familiaris Consortio that in the family, the man is called by God to occupy the roles of husband and father. Indeed, only men can be husbands and fathers. Both roles are poorly understood today. Many reject the idea that “husband” is anything more than a socially constructed title; and some doubt whether “fatherhood” is anything more


Husbands and fathers in the image of Christ...

The more I follow the online discussions ... the more I follow the debates and disagreements in the Church about administrative unity, or the concerns expressed about the moral or personal or administrative or leadership failings of the bishops or the clergy, the more I become convinced that whatever might be the truth of these concerns, ALL of this is simply a distraction. No, it’s more than that. It’s a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

If I used your logic in school--"this text says this, therefore it's true and we should uncritically follow it like a bunch of goddam sheep, because it says so," I wouldn't have gotten past 6th grade. You are an embarrassment to middle schoolers everywhere who daily demonstrate higher levels of thinking than religious folk.

What you should say in regards to the Bible or any other text is the following: "OK, whoever wrote this is obviously trying to convince me of something. But what are the logical reasons why I should believe in this?" THINK, for Christ's sake!
Surely there was a more relevant post/thread to troll on this site?
