Great. Are they consistent with scripture or not?

Therefore, to judge the Catholic Chruch as lacking authenticity or integrity because they change an unnecessary teaching seems to me to be using the wrong stick to beat this particular dog.


Unnecessary . . . interesting. It is "unnecessary" now because some old dinasours in Rome say it is. 100 years ago was it? Has God's word changed in those 100 years? Confused

The point is that religion can be as much about man's quest for power and control as about God and salvation. IMO this is an example of a foolish practice dying (thankfully) at the hands of the people.

Integrity? No - there are FAR meatier examples of the Catholics being out of touch than this: no women priests, abstinent priests, no contraception - including a ban on condoms when millions die of aids), no masturbation, being able to buy yourself out of purgatory, etc., etc.

As with this limbo foolishness, all of these other anachronisms will fall soon enough.
