Re: **Constantine: The Father of Christianity[With Just A Hint of Paganism!]??**

James Wesley Chester ·
A few years ago, I talked about St. Augustine as a part of a presentation celebrating Kwanzaa. I mentioned the African popes of the Catholic Church and St. Augustine noting that he was African, as was his mother. I didn't know she revered and called 'Mother Something'. A member of the audience was the head of a local agency and a 'biggie' in the lay membership if the a large Catholic congregation. He was pissed. When I finished he approached and wanted to know where did I get my information...

Empty Purnata: I am aware of St. Augustine's African Ancestry and his wisdom/fame. How does this thread relate to the subject of Constantine and Eusebius...? Do you allude 'to the mindset' that St. Augustine gives the Church validity? I personally don't care how many black catholic christians were inspired by the 'lying lore of christianity'!!!

After the final destruction of Jerusalem and Judea by the Romans in 135 AD, the Jerusalem church was taken over by non-Jews. From this destruction, Eusebius says: "In this way the city was closed to the Jewish Race and suffered the total destruction of its former inhabitants, it was colonized by an alien race, and the Roman city which subsequently arose changed its name in honor of the emperor then reigning" (S., Acharya 37-8). The First Ecumenical Council of the Catholic Church was held in...

He could command if only he wanted?: Sheesh! How tragic! So let me ask: Why didn't the Christians of the 19th century follow St. Paul's example? That's what you advocate right? Do as the Bible commends? So why didn't 19th century Christians follow that example??: wish the slaves well, bid the masters regard their slaves as brothers, and remark that they could command if they wished it but wait instead for it to come from the heart???

Freedom of Speech is one thing but DISRESPECT is another. I dont think the image deserves the riots and killings but I do think the images are insensitive and disrespectful. Many americans do not understand why this is a big deal. Black americans should be more understanding. If the Danish Press publish a cartoon of a black slave hanging from a tree with black 'urban thugs' pointing guns at him, with a caption that read "Bush's Dream come true".... I think my first respose would be to riot.

I agree. But I don't think they understand that violence inspires more violence. Shocking really, considering current global events. There are far more constructive ways of dealing with disrespect. As I said in an earlier post, if African-Americans blew something up or burned something down everytime we were disrespected there would be nothing left of America by now. I hope so... for their sake as well as ours.

I personally view all conflicts in that relationship as normal, not race based. I think that it takes two VERY understanding people to look above race to have a functional relationship. Race topics have come up in those relationships, for me, but since she nor I are racist, they have been discussed without anger/hatred.

Well, two things I add to this is, one, here in Houston, as Kresge has already stated, there are Black megachurches capable of holding a larger number of people than the venue it was held in. I would surmise that St. Agnes Church was picked because it is probably the biggest one in Sheila Jackson-Lee's district. I'm not sure about that, but that's just my guess. Also of note, the hotel where the bunch was staying was at least 40+ miles from where the church was, in an upscale suburb of the...

But Augustine has no teaching on the immaculate conception of Jesus. The immaculate conception teaching is in reference to Mary, who is a decendant of King David, a lineage she passes on to her son.

Re: Katie Holmes Silenced By Her Husband During Labor: Who Does Crazy Tom Think He Is

Scientology births encourage the other people in the room to be silent and reverent/respectful, not the mother. She can make noise. There's no way she could give birth without making noise. It's not as freaky as it sounds. It's just about having a warm, calm environment for the baby to enter into. Besides, the signs on the gate were a ruse. She gave birth yesterday at St. John's Hospital (to a baby girl named Suri), not at home.
