I was raised Catholic. I have been a practicing Catholic my entire life. Throughout the years, I have had major issues with the Catholic Church.<br><br>
Now this...<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Pope Benedict will on Tuesday become the holder of the first bond issued by the British government to help fund vaccination programmes for children in the Developing World .<br><br>
Cardinal Renato Martino, one of Benedict's top aides, was scheduled to fly to London to attend the bond sale on behalf of the German pontiff .</td>

Well as you know, my friend... I've never been part of the religiosity set. And I also think that Jesus, were he to return by "Phillip's" transport, would more than gag.<br><br>
He'd get some more whips to route the money changers outta the temple don't you think?<br><br>
Churchianity as a system has little to recommend it, in terms of overall contribution to the history and welfare of mankind as a whole.<br><br>
Jesus, on the other hand, is a different story. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> He was "hands on"<br><br>
The current vatican crew are more interested in jet setting for the 10 seconds in the sun media sound bite, and feel good fuzzies.<br><br>
Yet their own, on the ground in the 3rd world countries could do so much more if the RCC would unleash some of that land they have, sell it, and fund their priests a whole lot better. Get some decent water, decent living systems sorted for a start, huh?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>
Not at you. At them.
