I was just kidding around, but in the interim of focusing on that, you've missed the import of the thread, which is becoming ever more clear.

So I'm sorry for the intermittent Pope bashing we're seeing coming in off the OP. Maybe they'll stick around long enough to do more than post from a knee jerk reaction, once they start to see what it's really all about.

I have nothing against him. Nice white suit!

Oh to not see it.....

people will just pass right on by, seeing and not seeing, hearing and not hearing and I don't even have to talk in parables but can state it plainly, and sitll no comprehension. Maybe nothing at all HAS changed since those days, poor Jesus, it must have been hard to be real and authentic in the midst of all the nonsense and absurdity

how much more do i need to say other than you believe in fairy tales.
there is no difference between the bible and the lord of the rings.
there is no fact, no logic, no sense in what you believe.

May I ask you something? And no, it's not bad.


Kind of going off my novel post above, this is what I'd love to talk about.
Your opinion (and it is correct since it is yours, you believe in it 100% and I so respect you for having it and holding true to it) is that Religion and the Bible is fake; the stories never happened and it's all a made up fairy tale.

Now the other guys opinion (and it too is as correct as yours since he believes in it 100 percent and I also respect him for holding to it) is that it is true and one just has to have faith to understand the belief in something one can't physically prove.

What I wanted to ask was (kind of) simple. Do you think by telling the other guy over and again that his beliefs are wrong that he'll change his entire belief cycle to join you in your beliefs? He feels your beliefs are wrong and he'd like to change your entire belief cycle to join him in HIS beliefs. Since neither of you should change your beliefs as you believe them 100 percent, why try so hard to demolish the other person? I kind of ask this to both of you really if he'll see this or even if you will.


I just really want to understand why people want to argue and down another man's beliefs when they dislike when it happens to them. When you think on it, none of us really know the Truth Absolute. It's all opinions and beliefs. I'm just talking about religion right now. Nothing else.

Thanks so much for reading this and for any answers you or the other person wish to provide. I really truly appreciate it.

Well firstly, nothing is correct just because someone believes it; if 1,000,000 people believe in a silly thing, it is still a silly thing.
Honestly I have been hearing this religious crap my whole life and I am sick of it. It makes me sad, sick and disgusted to see people believe this stuff.
In this argument, my view is not really an opinion but a basis of fact. I can understand where your coming from if it was say democrat vs. republican or whatever but religion is simply ignorant and needs to be stopped.

But we all know that it is church of Rome policy to cover up kiddy fiddler priests, moving them and paying off the families of kids they fiddled with.


Ah and Protestant churches don't do that because they have no hierarchies? Oh but wait they do...

I worked for a company that did the file claims for The Catholic Church..........you don't know jack $hit. So much has been hidden from the public you have no idea.


Oh, well, hidden and covered up info is different. This is the perfect place for you to uncover that info. What did you do for this company? And what was the name of the company again? Please come forward with this information it is important, and I might change my mind if I have more information. I don't just blindly support the church no matter what, after all.

The OP was "Why did the Pope dress as Santa?"

Because our vision or version of Santa is , in part, based on Saint Nicholaus...SAINT Nicholoaus...a person active in the Catholic Church. The traditional garb has been worn in the past and is not unusual...

It's like going to a ranch or farm and wondering why everyone is dressed like John Wayne because they are wearing cowboy hats.....or going into a field wear everybody the has long hair is wearing bandanas around their head and wondering why everyone is dressed like Willie Nelson... we could go on, but why?

We see what we see based on our paradigm and life experience... some see Santa... some see the Pope wearing traditional garb... Why does the President of the US dress like a mortician or a weather man on TV?

One of my favorite examples is a black piece of rope on the ground... a farmer or hunter will at first see a snake... a cable TV guy or electrician will see cable.... when in fact it is just a black piece of rope.

Likewise, a Catholic will see the Pope.. a child will see Santa.... a historian will see traditional European dress.

Unfortunately, time and history and culture has done for Saint Nicholaus into Santa Claus what America has done to the frankfurter into a hotdog, Mexican food into Taco Bell, or southern culture into the Dukes of Hazard... a twisted, convoluted shadow of its former self.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA WOW YOU ARE IGNORANT.
how they are false? there is no fact!
you clearly have no grip on reality nor history and science.


Hey, man, Jesus was real, and he saved millions of people from a life of slavery to the Jewish elite. He told them, "You don't have to give all your money, possessions, and even children to the sick, greedy sons of Satan! You don't have to believe that God is some murderous psychopath who loves animal and human sacrifice and wants nothing more than to kill you and everyone you love if you don't do everything they say! You don't have to be extorted and controlled by them any more, you can be free!" So yah, I LOVE JESUS for that, because it applies to me, too! They are STILL up to their old games. They still serve their father, the Devil, and seek to do his works. They still want nothing more than to control everything and steal your money, property, children- and your soul. Don't you see? There are religions all around us- many are harmless, but there are some that have ALWAYS been PURE EVIL, and they still exist today, and whether you believe in God or gods or aliens or reptilians or whatever or nothing, THEY DO, and they will do anything to please their evil gods. And someday, my friend, you will look at their secret sacrifices in bohemian groves before great idols and realize that THEY DON"T GIVE A # ABOUT YOU and in fact want to kill you to make more room for them, or possibly let you live in servitude to them, and you, my friend, will have to CHOOSE A SIDE. And on that day, I hope you choose the spirit of CHRIST.

Pedos should be strung up wherever they are found. I have already pointed out that the Church was infiltrated by Masons and servants of Satan at the Second Vatican Council. If you are not aware of how drastically the Church changed at VII, I suggest you look it up, because it was not even a decade after VII that priests (young priests. new priests. post-VII priests. Masons. Jews. Communists. Satanists) started raping children. Hundreds of years before, the Masons had promised to bring down the Vatican. They promised that Lucifer would crush the archangel, Michael. And they have long memories and infinite resources. The pope is a good man, he thinks he is doing good. But he is deceived. Just like the US government, they have a shadow power structure in place to accomplish their goals. But there is so much hope. Because, just like the US government's power truly lies in the People, the Church's power truly lies in the Believers. There are 1.5 BILLION Catholics in this world, and the vast majority are good, honest people who oppose everything they, the zionist NWO, represent. Protestants don't- many Protestants are zionists, too. Well, mainline Prots aren't. But they are too silent in this country. The whackos are given the loudest voice, though they are fewer. Gee I wonder why? Why are crazy Christians always in the news, but the billions of honest, humble ones are not? The NWO is so tiny! But so wealthy. That's the only way they are able to maintain control- their wealth. Their control of mass media, that great brainwashing device, that you have so obviously been affected by.

Keep learning bro. Read about VII, and about the Jews (the Bible you always put down is THEIRS. See the two parts of it! See how THEIR part is so violent and horrifying, while CHRIST'S part finally speaks the TRUTH!). See how different their god is from the TRUTH!

So do you have any evidence?
