"I can almost. So for the book, right, every chapter had to start again knowing nothing right? You know it's suddenly become like. Quite knowledgeable about Shiva war, and then something you have to start game with the American revolution and you know nothing he thought again and I almost trace how how radio was to start writing about it by the the extent to which I recognized how complicated it was right like in the beginning first few moments of coming or something you know this is quite simple wishes. This and that and a couple more books later, fucking helmet and this is fucking complicated as fuck and then you couple of experts and you read another book and the exact moment that I think you'll ready to do it is when you can start to describe the the complexity of thing in about four or five sentences. So it's it automatically to even understand the world is. To recognize the complexity policy making and an assessment of the world two quite distinct things in that area and import AC- making absolutely, you should often strive for especially when sort of your average punter member of the public someone with a busy life is expected to abide by it when it comes to acknowledging how the world operates whether it's science economics or constitutional on matters. The truth is the world is complicated in any time. Someone comes along and tells you something's actually boot. They are wrong. How does liberalism intersect with issues like what we're living through at the moment as a public health emergency or more broadly, let's say environmental protection which seems to miss certain level of state masculinity and coordination is required and personal liberties must by definition because tales. Will you see the state muskie laboratories required but I don't believe that these situations invoke elements of individual liberties, loads, liberalism especially, sort of gotta -tarian liberties especially left-wing liberalism accepts the road of the state and would have the state new very, very invoked parts of the multicultural debate. You get feminists liberalism that would just say basically, we shouldn't even be allowing the states shouldn't be allowing the Catholic Church to operate unless you have sort of euro deigning female priests and things like that. However, when we come to individual liberty, individual liberty is not an absolute. That is that is a sort of an infantile version of it that you see from right some right wing Libertarians. The bout assessing the balance of rights that people have. So when it comes to the environment when it comes to co bid allowing these things to run rampant hurts individual liberty. At someone who is vulnerable he gets sick from covid with no action was taken to protect them when we didn't have the capacity that person has lost individual Liberty Los Liberty to do anything because you know th they will die or they will suffer the same with environmental issues. The lose the ability even to appreciate nature or much more importantly when you've got some parts of the world where we will get migration facts, people literally not being able to live them leaving them because of the environmental impact. Warranted Buddhism lost you to do is to compare the quality and quantity of freedoms they're on discussion and to make judgments. So in the case of Covid, you're like, yeah, you're GONNA lose liberty. We're GONNA have a lockdown. You're not going to be able to go out eight eight of us and not going to be able to meet up at the same time. The liberties that are gained by doing other vulnerable or able to survive and to to see the full extent of this creation and with the activities they want to do so a limited. It's more like liberalism provides the on search for how you do these things with proper mole light of what is it risk, what you were trying to preserve the sacrifices and the host you're engaging in it wit I don't think any of this stuff can be done without neighbors in in closing the liberals need both the confidence to stand up for their beliefs but also the humility to understand where they've gone wrong. They often see us like they can manage one or the other. NOPE, both, how how are the opponents of populism particularly since two sixteen fairing on that front? Are they are they airing in in one direction or the other? Sort, of thinking through because you do feel that is rather too much from other to both. So No I feel a tremendous amount of hope look around the world like I feel him when I look at like the black lives matters protests when I look the practice that rose up against trump's immigration reforms when he was basically trying to pour eight hundred, thousand people to once would he was separating children from their families when I see the liberal institutions working according to basically blueprints was the separation of powers the courts parliament, the Congress stand up against executive how we're I look like the remained movement here where we may not have won but you saw for the first time in our lifetime. Million people on the streets of London on the basis of stunning of international institutions for the ideas of nations working together the ideas of protecting minorities. In this case, imigrants being targeted by the government I just feel a tremendous sense of hope. However. It feels to me like that instinct that kind of really visceral resents of resistance of knowing that you stand up does need to have within. A very clear idea of what our values are going in especially about the individual it's an especially when we when we do with nationalism and when we when we deal with issues around marginalized groups to think hang on, these are not homogeneous blocks that you took my the individual within the matters ness that protected they will be spoken about by group leaders who do not necessarily reflect their interests or their views. So unless that is of Anchor down and understanding where liberalism went wrong in the past wardens values offer. Now the resistance movement to me make some of the same mistakes we made in the first place but I see the push their I see that spirit there and I feel like there is like you have to be quite blinded by dispatch to have no hope at the moment that we just have to direct away that abides by the values which.

"I'm not doing it again because I've done it enough enough. So anyway, let's go back to the so you wanted to say. No, you could not against you going to be charitable, and we're not allowed to, you know, laughing, Humpty, dummy. Oh, God. Now let's laugh at him. I have absolutely no patients in my soul for that, man. If you want to be the mouth of media matters by all means. So I get a call from our friend in the PR department. And she is a friend, right? Says Ah, I guess I just have to pass this on. What? They're offering an opportunity for you to go on Humpty show and I'm like, Come on. You're joking. Right now. This guy has got like no radios. Like nothing and an extreme. That's not true. He has an uncle in the brass key, the watches faithfully exactly. That's my point. Hence is, you know the failure of his book. And the funny thing is, and he's like I made The New York Times List like if it's all right, the difference between number one on the New York Times could be the number one best silicon so hundreds of thousands of books By the time you get to the bottom of the list, you know, even number five Khun B. Like 5000, and you make the list. Everyone's brags. They made the list. Okay? Doesn't mean the book is a success. And which they listen. This is all you know, inside baseball. People don't care about this. No, they don't care about it. And you know why? You know why they can't You know how I know about Woodward's book is going t O. You really suck at this. My God. Thank you. What I was going to say is what I was going to say, is that the mere sign of sales alone? The fact that people are out there buying your book and not his book. The People are speaking out there telling us what's going to happen on November 3rd. It's this's not hard. I'm not reading between the lines. It's it's black and white on paper 100% and speaking with their dollar. No, it's true. I only really care about the country. You know, people, people now gotten into the habit asked me. Well, what if the president loses? What are you going to do it? I'm going. My answers. Keep fighting for freedom and liberty. I'm going to keep fighting because eventually people going to figure out what we already know. But the guy is not up for the job. And then the policies are radical, hard socialist left. I love our country, our country to succeed. I don't want freedom destroyed in in this generation. You ready? So anyway, it's what I was going to say was Joe Biden. You know, I mean, we're looking at right now. Like when you were talking yesterday about Esposito and talking about the fact that the lyrics are like, sniff me slowly, you know, which is about the triplets were divided. So free pizza grease in the video I play. Was. That was great. I mean, just think about all the weird things, he said. From like, you know, the kids touching the hair on his legs. Now he's like creeping up smelling people's hair. And and he's playing the song. It's just There's a lot of weird things. I always think my God, if Donald Trump that even one of these things, the entire media would be up in arms, like Oh, my God, It's crazy, but he doesn't do anything You know, he does the Mideast peace accords like that's okay. Joe Biden Ways to a, You know, a field of corn like, Oh, my God, he went to the Gorn. Come on, guys. It's It's a Thing. It's amazing the degree of lying and the lack of any self awareness. The mob. I think they think they're doing God's will. I think that they have convinced themselves there are I strongly disagree with you. I don't think they're doing God's will. They're doing their own thing. Doing self preservation. They ought to be begging and hoping and helping and contributing to Donald Trump's reelection. They should, because that's the only think you've given them any ratings at all. Exactly there too obnoxious to pass on the credit where credit's due. Listen, it is not my first rodeo. I've been through elections won elections lost. I could deal with anything. You want to know the truth. It's my job's easier. It's not about me. It's not about my job is not about it's about our kids. To me, You know, as you get older, and I think you're now getting a little bit in in this stage among the other side of it, now that you know I'm on empty nester and I just see life very differently. I see and appreciate my parents and grand parents so much more than I did when I was young and stupid, and I see the sacrifice that they made in their lives for their Children and their grandchildren. My father didn't even know my kids. I just see why they did what they did on I understand it, and I drove these poor people crazy. I wish I could have changed respect. I wish I was a little bit better change. Ah, actually have I have? I've become more religious Asai get older. I believe in God more than ever before in my life. You're doing that to your yours. Your whole thing is shocked me. Why? Because I think we both be coming from the Catholic Church. Yeah. I mean, I love the Catholic Mass. I think I just was so disappointed and so angry even at the institutional corruption. Jin within the church, Franks from the local parish all the way through up and through Rome that it just it didn't never turn me away from God. It just it's van kind. That's failure. And I think that the whole message of Jesus Christ is that Yeah, we're all sinners, and that we want to be better people. But you know, the church is not the place where you should have institutionalised corruption covered up like that. It's It's unbelievable to me. I I agree with you on all of that. But my reasons for leaving the Catholic Church are a little bit different. The broader picture Think on on both religion and politics. And the reason why those topics are so divisive among so many is because we align ourselves the corners, and my argument has always been like I believe, you know, like I go to a nondenominational Christian church. So people come from all walks of that faith. Whether it's Protestant, Lutheran, Methodist, Catholic. What have you roll under one roof? Now we're just praising Jesus Christ. And you know the Lord our Saviour and just kind of going By the Bible, and however you want to interpret it and how whatever your conversation is with God, your personal conversation. That's something and that's personal. Then politics is the same thing. So if we say on the Republican on the Democrat, then we don't agree on anything. But if we talk about issues nine times out of 10, If you're in a room full of people, you'll agree so long as you don't assign it a title and a party. And we've seen that time again, If you know what Howard Stern did you know, campus reform did when they went out me said all these different things that you know that Obama had done, but they assigned them to Trump and people are freaking out. And then they're like, Well, actually, that was Obama. That did it, and he stood there and they were like, Oh, then it's OK, because they just they're not thinking about the issues. They're not thinking for themselves there under this group, think this this mob mentality It doesn't make any sense. It's like we're all about nonconformity so long as you think like me. It's It's such a paradox. It's it's it's. It's actually kind of shocked. There is an intersection that you know where politics and religion do meet or faith. You know, this is a country founded on Judeo Christian values. I believe that strongly from the politics side of it, where it intersects is that we believe our founding document endowed by our creative rights come from God. And not from government and you know, Thomas Paine said government it's best state is a necessary evil in its worst state and impale arable evil. And and then on the idea that You know, people, you know, pursuit of happiness. You can't pursue happiness without law and order and safety and security can pursue happiness of your educational system fails our precious kids. And on that note, Shawn, Today was the day that the Constitution was sign is our historian Ethan just reminded me. And I'm 17 87. I've got to take a break here. I'm going to call in this pastor. It's going to be a hell I don't Oh, my God. Today, no cold in his pants and then you know, it's a hell of a time to call. Does he know you curse as much as you? Do we stop it, like tell me that Santa Claus doesn't exist. Stop does. Does he know you curse is much as you do, I would say no, I might have to tell them..

Fresh update on "catholic church" discussed on Tom Sullivan
"Are. First Amendment. Yes, it's right here. Welcome to the program. So I mentioned Cuties and already Bruce Martin, send me a tweet says Actually, you're wrong on the cuties Netflix documentary. The more people like Mike Lee speak out against it. The more Netflix subscriptions are getting canceled. It's a huge movement right now. Really? I just I just checked. Their subscriptions. Are going higher. And I think maybe it's because of of co Vered. I'm not sure But they, um the number of people subscribing. Every year is going up exponentially. They have 183 million subscribers around the world. 183 million. It. It's massive. I mean, business has 26 million. Netflix has 183 million They're monsters. I've always believed I saw this many. Many years ago, There was some movie that came out. That was. This is before all the Catholic Church and priests, controversy and everything else, but there was something bad about Catholic priest. And I remember Tom Donahue, who was very active, outraged all the time for the Catholic Diocese of New York. And he went on all the networks raging about this movie that nobody had heard of. And the box office went crazy if a box office would weigh up. So I've seen it happen many time over time after time after time. So here's Mike Leigh. I don't disagree with him being offended, but as a U. S senator going on network television And telling everybody about this underage girls sexual ization. Is just going to drive more people to it. Here's Mike Leigh. In fact, this this isn't exposing child sexual exploitation. This film actually embodies that it profits from it, it normalizes it, and that's wrong. Netflix needs to take it off of its platform, and people shouldn't watch it. The fact is that Children as young as 11 1 of the actors portraying these 11 year olds was actually 10 at the time it was filmed. We were made to act this out. This was itself an act of child sexual exploitation. This is a problem that it does need attention drawn to it. But the way in which this draws attention to the problem is by glamorizing it by normalizing it and by profiting from it. You read that If you watched the movie and you take the movie as a whole, What you'll see is that this is not something that's undertaken delicately. There are all kinds of assaults against Children that are depicted in movies without highlighting them. Without focusing on them obsessively without glamorizing or normalizing them. This movie doesn't do that Thiss movies wrong. So what does he do? He promotes it. They could not dead better advertising than a senator going on and obsessing about how terrible this movie is. Because as much as it sounds terrible I just know people. They're going to hole. Did you hear that? Hear that I want I want. I want to check this out. So I appreciate that it is offensive to him and many others. But you don't go talk about it and promoted your advertising. It I don't know why people can't figure that out. And I like Mike Leigh's a nice man, Smart guy. But not when it comes to figuring out that he's promoting something that he doesn't want to do. The more you say it's wet paint. Don't touch I mean, that's it's the oldest. It's the oldest saying in the world. Wet paint. Don't touch. What do people do? Of course, they touch it to see if it's really wet paint. So by going Oh, this is a terrible movie. You don't want to watch it under sex involved in thunder agent. I mean, I know it's all wrong. I know. And I know what I know. But I'll tell you what If we're going to go watch it. Was a guy arrested today. Have you ever watched Speaking of Netflix? I had. I have not seen it. There's a documentary Siri's called Cheer. And the star of that documentary is a guy by the name of Jerry Harris. And he was arrested today for producing child pornography. I work for the guide many years ago. That was a very, very good Broadcaster. And a nice guy like the guy knew his wife. All that one day all of a sudden. He's not at work anymore. He was arrested for child porn. I was so surprised. I was so stunned. You can't tell who these people are. But I just know that it will a attract all the people that are attracted. To underage girls. But it's also there's a whole bunch of people out there that say the minute you say, Don't watch something. I got to go see how bad this is. I love it. When when? When A bunch of people come out, you know, from some theater that used to show was that there was a there was a breakthrough porn movie. Deep throat. Which was the name for the FBI guy in Watergate, But anyway deep throat And I will. I always remember. People would come out from watching that movie and go. I'll tell you what. The whole thing was offensive all the way to the end. Oh, nothing. I was outraged all the way to the end. It's not. I'm not trying to be funny. It's just it's it's Good. It's Something's wrong when people say You shouldn't watch this. You shouldn't touch this. I'm telling you don't go, and then you get on national television and tell everybody else out there. And he's rightfully outraged. I don't disagree with his outrage, and I don't plan to watch it, but I know what's gonna happen. A Netflix. I'm sorry..
California Creek Fire Zero Percent Contained, Chief Firefighter Says
"The People Fighting California's wildfires include our next guest chief. Chris Donnelly is spent twenty two years as a volunteer firefighter in Huntington Lake California. Good, morning sir. Good. Morning Steve. How are you this morning I'm okay. We've reported a lot on the sheer extent of the fires. How have you been spending your days where you are? Well we we began this this fight probably on Saturday morning about six am and what we did I was get all of our people out of Huntington Lake. Huntington has about probably five hundred and fifty summer cabins in an additional hundred and ten. Condominiums, we had thousands of people at Huntington and Once I had is on the fire, very clear to me that he was going to burn into Huntington and lives were at stake. So we spent most of the time getting people out. Well, I'm glad you've been able to do that. But of course, because of course, we have been following stories of some other resort areas, vacation areas where. There for the summer there for vacation there camping have had to be evacuated emergency ways. you said you got is on the fire can you describe the landscape the way it looks to somebody who's never been there and what the fire looked like. Yeah. Honey. Lake is quite unique word seven thousand feet, and we are the reservoir for a very large electric generation facility. That's two thousand feet below us. Virtually down a steep just just a cliff. and. So when I heard a sheriff's deputies go through our area to begin evacuations about five thirty in the morning on Saturday. I called our dispatch and and and they told me where the fire was. I drove down there about fifteen to twenty minutes away. And look down into the Canyon to about a thousand feet below us and saw flames and new as soon as the morning wins started upslope of Valley. That that was going to be a threat to Huntington. So I recommended that we do a mandatory evacuation at Huntington and began that vacuum evacuation about seven thirty. Our our teams, we we knew this was coming eventually with so much deadened down and the droughts over the years. And temperatures have been drier and well, it's been hotter and humidity's dryer. So said so much deadened down is this mostly forested area that we're talking about This heavy forest. Read for in white for as much as eight feet in diameter. And Bark Beetle infestations probably killed a third of that forest and Ecorse was. Caused by not not too much water much hotter temperatures in the last ten or fifteen years. and. So we have a lot of lot of fuel out there in the forest. You you focused a lot clearly on the evacuation is everybody out safely so far as you know from your area of responsibility. Absolutely. We made several passes through our small community. And we verified that everyone was gone, and then at that point, we had lots of strike teams which are groups of fire engines each. Totaling about thirty five engines by about two PM. At which time is started releasing our personnel to get their families and get out. So right now, the the only members of our fire department, our one company officer, which we will keep their throughout the battle. But it's simply not safe to be there. Well this helps to explain number that we've been hearing the past couple of days we're told this fire is zero percent contained. Is this a circumstance and of course, it's true of all wildfires to some extent circumstance where it's abundantly clear that the massive -ness of dead vegetation that you've described that the extreme dryness means that you really this is something that is beyond human control. At this point I think that's a that's a good statement. I don't know what the future of Huntington Lake is. But at this point to it does not look good. Has. The fire actually reached the the what had been the settled area of Huntington Lake. Yes. We have loss cabins of on the western end of the lake. All communications are down into the area I am not there at this moment. So it's very difficult to get serious information but about six PM last night, all crews were pulled out to about the middle of the lake. And we don't know if they re engaged or not. You said, all crews have been pulled out to the middle of the lake. Do you mean that they went out on the water? No. Okay this is copulated on the north side of the lake, and so a mid mid way on the shore you retreat retreated to a more defensible place is what you're saying. Thank you for much much better said, yes, Gotcha Gotcha I want people to know if they don't that you are as you describe it a brother in the Catholic church maybe a layman would think of you as a monk that is another thing that you do besides volunteer firefighting for twenty two years. How does that inform the way that you think about an event like this? Well you know I'm a teacher at Saint Mary's College and I've worked with kids since probably nineteen seventy. So it for me, it's all about caring people and touching hearts and. It's it's that center of people that I worry about the most you can rebuild cabins and you can go somewhere else but it's the people. So you know just a a little. Thirty second bit for you. Yesterday morning, I drove by a cabin and made a PA announcement directly to people about you need to get out now. Yesterday I called her and told her cabin was gone. And she shared with me that are great. Grandfather that cabin in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty. And her grandmother talked about the moments out playing in the woods and collecting pine cones and. As she broke into tears. I. Thought. How many stories like this am I going to be hearing?

How Plagues Become Renaissances
"Today. We're talking about how plagues become Renaissance's. So if we look back at the EIB bhubaneshwar plague in. Europe, it was ultimately a catalyst for the renaissance. Now, it wasn't a smooth transition, but there was this period of you know horrible plag- afterwards, there was kind of all. Things start to shift around a little bit. People started to get optimistic again, they moved outside their homes and villages, and what it had done was loosened the power of the Catholic Church Fan. So when was the bubonic plague in what was happening? Then I don't actually. Know what was happening? When you get the bubonic plague, right? Can you tell me a bit more about this? You get sick and die basically. So was like I think the same as the black death where it's like one in three people in Europe. Got It around what the twelve hundred or something The people can back probably off by a couple hundred years, but the point being like everything was going smooth in. Europe. Europe, and then all of a sudden one, one in three people got the plague got sick and died unfortunately and the controlling party in Europe. The time was basically the Roman Catholic Church and what this did was it loosened the grip of the Church and there was all this newfound experimentation which gradually turned towards individualism and how that happened I think is fascinating. So I was doing some reading today. There's a book called. techniques and civilization and nineteen, thirty, four book. It's kind of obscure. But the author Lewis Mumford described how the invention of the clock singlehandedly catalyzed the renaissance basically. So there's this lull. Post plag-, and all of a sudden. This invention is created the clock and the idea of telling time comes into existence and all of a sudden, the the grip of the Roman Catholic Church reduces and you have art science Yeah. Everything get founded in explored. So why did the grip reduce? Is it because they were kind of controlling the idea? The idea. Yeah, and to the point where you know if you had sins or whatever, and you want to be forgiven in the eyes of the community or the church, you know you need it to buy an indulgence. It was a very strict doctrine where you know like my parents were Lutheran and there are certain things I. Certainly didn't agree with their. But if you follow that back, Lutheranism was a reaction to the Catholic church was like a reformation from that and Catholic churches like even more. So so just like very. Tight grip culturally is a good way of putting it. So not really open to individual experimentation There's no concept of science and supposedly like because of the clock, there wasn't any aspect of. You know a belief that. The your world was like verifiable or you could put it in Su You know practice for something that you conceived of, does that make sense? Yeah. I'm trying to relate it back to the plague of thinking about how it all ties together well I. think that was interesting. Is that the way that we're going to get out of this is by new inventions. So new concepts of categorizing things whether that's you know deciding that health span for individuals increasing health span of everyone is a really viable like pursuit or. Or you know businesses are going to start investing money there I. think that could create an invention like the clock where we stop having this debate of like Oh, you know people lived to be around this age, and then they die and instead just thinking about, okay. There's sickness. There's disease going on how are we extend the health span of everybody like way more broadly to events like this are a good place to kind of snap you out of your traditional way of thinking because before with the Bubonic plague people. I think we're very I mean, they believed in the church and you know like bad things don't happen and ought bad stuff started happening spree superstitious, and then they look for something else afterwards, and you're saying maybe that same kind of thing can happen now with everything going on is that exactly? Quantification of. Things around whether there. You're like your inputs and outputs. We talked about like the quantified self movement in previous episodes or on a couple episodes of hidden in plain sight, which is just basically like tracking your imports which are drinking which are eating. So that quantification just like the clock kind of qualified time and created the same framework that everybody could run on and meet know more efficiently and all this stuff I think that Yeah, innovations here is. Is What's going to help us quantify things in new ways

Meggan Watterson | Christs First Apostle and Her Gospel of Love
"Hi Megan, welcome to the House Meditations podcast. Thank you, thank you for having me. Yeah. I'm really excited to to speak to you about. Of Topics today that includes your meditation and condemned practices. the life of Mary Magdalene in Christ. Women in early Christianity, and as you write in your book the Christianity we haven't yet tried. We haven't tried yet, yes. I think it might be instructive for our listeners for us to situate our conversation. By talking about the person of Mary Magdalene so, can you tell us who Mary Magwar mangled was? What was her relationship to Christ? Well, I love to start that conversation with. A clarification, which is that Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute. 'cause most people. That's how they have come across our. That's how they've been told about her is that she is the penitent prostitute, the woman who sinned much and was forgiven much So this. was a story of fictitious story created about her around the sixth century it within the Catholic tradition and the Catholic Church has actually. wrote a formal apology in the nineteen seventies and have corrected that misunderstanding of her and then Pope Francis recently rehabilitation sort of rehabilitate. That's the word he rehabilitated her. And she is now officially the apostle to the apostles, and that to me is very significant, not because there is anything ever. It's not that there's anything innately derogatory about sex in the body or you know. Anything having to do with that it the reason why to me it's so significant and important is because it begins to us closer to the truth of who she really was. Which which is the person Christ resurrected to? Right, she was his witness. She was there at the Tomb, not by accident not. Happen to just be in the right place at the right time if we include her Gospel among the other gospels that were co defied in the fourth century, if we if we reintroduce her gospel as just as significant just as worthy of taxed and scripture it. It speaks to Christianity, that included her included her in authority clued included her partnership with Christ, and that's really how I would describe and define them regardless of whether you ever go the sort of Davinci code rabbit hole of Were they married and. Did they have a physical relationship. They have a physical relationship. Physical Child You. We don't even need to go there at this point right now. It's so significant to identify and what we can know. empirically is that they were companions. They were partners and we know that from the. We know that even just from the New Testament exactly that we add these other Gospel, so can you help so for those of us? Who aren't scholars of the Bible or theologians? Can you help situate us? Okay? We have the the new. Testament that actually speaks about Mary Magdalene. Just spoke about that. She was present at at the resurrection, and she was the first person who Christ spoke to right after. They have that. We have that like an that. When I was raised Catholic that was the story was a prostitute who he was speaking to that what I was told. These whole other said of writings of Gospels that were around. There wasn't a codified Christianity after Christ right there were. Complaint Forms of writing. Right. Can you help us understand that? Yeah, I get really excited, sorry. When we talk about this early form of Christianity before it was could have at. It wasn't cofide until the fourth century. So that's important to understand so there are hundreds of years where there's a Christianity that's being practiced that so radical and threatening to the Roman Empire and the idea of. Existence being ranked according to a hierarchy so educated Roman born men are at the top, and then it. There's all different layers in positions of power but women. Prostitutes slaves would be down there at the bottom meaning, having no rights, and not having a sense of. Being able to have autonomy and voice and power themselves so Mary Magdalene would. Be Way down there at the bottom, not because she was a prostitute because she was a woman, women didn't have any rights or own property so. This form this early form of Christianity. If we re introduced scripture like the Gospel of Mary Magdalene like the Gospel of Philip, which names Mary as Kreis companion. The Greek word is Kono's, and that word can be translated as partner, beloved or companion, so the gospel of Philip names. Miriam of Magdala Mary Magdalene as the companion of Christ
Vatican says bishops should report sex abuse to police
"The Vatican has published new guidelines for Catholic Bishops on howto handle allegations of child sexual abuse by members off the clergy. The Catholic Church has been gripped by abuse scandals for years. Gareth Barlow reports. The 20 page handbook over Jamaica issued by the Vatican aims to provide clarity for bishops dealing with reports of sexual abuse. Clerics must now report any cases to their superiors and law enforcement. Regardless of what local legislation requires that don't come into also details what constitutes a sex abuse crime what investigations must take place on possible legal avenues to prosecute abusers. Catholic bishops requested the document to provide greater clarification on G process and responsibilities.
Vatican says bishops should report sex abuse to police
"The Vatican is advising bishops to report investigations into clerical sex abuse of minors to civil authorities, even if local laws don't require it. NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports. It's part of a long awaited manual. The handbook was issued in numerous languages and comes a year and 1/2 after Pope Francis summoned the heads of the world's bishop conferences. For a four day tutorial on abuse. For the past two decades, Roman Catholic churches around the world have been hit by numerous sex abuse cases and have spent billions of dollars in settlements. The manual does not have the force of a new law that goes beyond the current policy that bishops must report allegations of sex crimes on Lee, where legally required. The manual is aimed at depriving bishops of excuses not to investigate allegations of clerical sex abuse in order to protect their priests. Sylvia Poggioli

After lobbying, Catholic Church won $1.4 billion in virus aid
"By now, big companies politically connected cos. Cashing in on the massive federal rescue package that was designed to help small businesses whether economic devastation wreaked by the Corona virus pandemic. Today. We are learning courtesy of The Associated Press that the US Roman Catholic Church manage to secure billions of dollars in loans from that rescue package through the Paycheck protection program. Reporter Michael Risen. D's has been reporting on the Catholic Church for a long time. He is one of the reporters who has been crunching these numbers and trying to track where that money is going. Hey there. How are you? Hey, not so bad. Nice to Beecher. How much money Exactly are we talking about? Well what? What? What I and my colleague re stunk Lin identified and I got to really give a shadow to Reese here because he's a great date a reporter, But we were able to identify between $1.4 billion a cz Muchas 3.5 billion and the reason there's a range here is because the small business administration did not release precise loan amounts. They only released ranges of loans. Oh, and we identified 35 3500 loans worth between 1.4 billion and 3.5 billion. OK, so a huge range, but we are talking upward of a 1,000,000,000. That's 1,000,000,000 with a B. It's a lot of money. How how has it been spent? Well, it's been spent as far as we know. We don't have Ah, very clear accounting. I have to say, as usual from the Catholic Church on precisely how the money is being spent. Where assured it's being spent for for payroll and utilities keeping people employed. But I have to say there is no monitoring of this program. It's self monitoring itself. Certification. So we don't actually know for sure. Do we know for sure whether any of it has been devoted to to help cover past gaps in the finances? Um and I will note that many Catholic diocese were in really bad financial shape going into the pandemic because they had to pay out these big settlements to victims of clergy sexual abuse. Does that factor into how any of this rescue money is being spent at all? Or do we know? Well, this is one of the points we made in our story Is that a lot of this money eyes going to diocese that might be experiencing financial stress not so much because of the corona virus pandemic, but because of the large payouts they've had to make to clergy abuse survivors, sometimes in the hundreds of millions of dollars. You never hear much about these payments. You do hear a lot about supposed stress from the pandemic, And I think a lot of that stresses Israel, but in effect, I think what's happening here is you're seeing Churches who are stressed financially because of clergy sex abuse, getting a break through the federal government through through direct payments from the federal government that are being used to pay actually the salaries of priests and ministers, which is unprecedented. As we noted, this money was supposed to help small businesses. The Catholic Church is not a small business how to church leaders defend us. Well, I think the first thing that happened is because of the downturn in the economy was so severe. I think the government wanted to just get a lot of money out there. So there was an exception made. For religious groups they could they could. They could apply like any small business. But then what happened is there was a second break that religion's got and the second break. Is that they were exempted from the rule that says that on ly small businesses, Khun get the loans, and the small businesses are defined by businesses with 500 employees, and that includes the employees and all of their subsidiaries. So we find now that religious groups are exempt from that rule, And that's why, for example, 80 churches, parishes in the same diocese can apply, and that's why The church was able to get so many loans and so much money and you know, I'd like to say that even though we identified between 1.4 billion and 3.5 billion We know that's an undercount. We know we were not able to identify all the loan. So the the money is really quite large. We just have a minute or so left. But do we know whether other religious institutions did other churches get this benefit? Or was this just the U. S Catholic Church? No. All religions got this benefit Thie Catholic Church, of course, is very A large organization. This is a This is a global religion that is headquartered in Rome. It is its own country. In fact, it's headquartered in Vatican City. It so its own nation. It's very time consuming toe. Identify exactly who was giving these loans we know now. So we have We have a pretty good idea of what the Catholic Church got other religions did benefit. I can't give you those numbers right now. The data was just released this week. All right, well, we'll look forward to when you come back and tell us when you've dug through the rest of it. Thank you so much for sharing your reporting today. My pleasure.

"catholic church" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN
"Our society was dumber about this type of thing thirty and forty years ago we talk about the Catholic Church we talk about so many institutions that here individuals that it just garden variety criminals we were way too lenient are the people who committed sexual crimes against children as a rule that I society be at an institution the Boy Scouts are facing this problem as well and when somebody even when they were caught by the authorities you see here in Illinois multiple convictions between eighty to one ninety nine a generally just got a year or two just the refusal to learn that slides like this guy need to be locked up for decades because sexual perversion toward children is a crime that is almost impossible apparently given the overwhelming number of repeaters to stop doing back to the release so we've got up tonight and they point out that he know what identity but passes sexual registry until ninety nine so there was no such thing as an adjudicated sexual predator until they passed the law until that point I would pick out a little bit but I would say also point out that many other states were slow to react to this just as many of us in society were slow to react and many institutions that obviously it now in retrospect deeply regret it but it was a societal wide problem in which we were simply in denial about the number of perverts that were out there back to the release you able to receive in nineteen ninety six and lived there until two thousand three he then lived in Walker shop or three to all eight and that'll kind of walked away to the present through the investigation it was determined that you in sexually assaulted six non relative children in Waukesha it does but these crimes came to light in January of twenty twenty last month would one victim came forward and reported the prior crimes the police Ewing was arrested and charged at January twenty fourth Waukesha county with four counts of repeated sexual assault of a child and one count of sexual assault of a child under sixteen his victims are non relative children raging free ranging in age from infant to teen age at are both male and female let me interject again this is very unusual I didn't say nonexistent most of these people and we've covered so many of these stories over the years have an animal or a pattern there into a certain type teenage boys teenage girls preteen boys preteen girls maybe a relative like their own child this guy was a broad base the fender everything from an infant two teenagers again I'm not saying it doesn't happen I'm saying that this is not the norm so you he's a real secco ad we also know that there's a pattern prior to these charges that they brought here in Wisconsin now in January of twenty twenty all these charges dating back in a little eighty to eighty five eighty six nineteen ninety three all those cases in Illinois they again all ran the gamut in terms of the type of offense and the type of victim back to the release from the Waukesha police you would would be friend the family and offered to watch the children or take the children to the park well the parents were Holman rad errands or were at work you and has a small fishing boat and camping gear and possibly use those to spend time alone with the children the Waukesha police department is asking for the communities help in locating potential additional victims of sexual assault if you recognize Ewing and all over the media they got photos of him and the police released a compilation of photos of him throughout the years you can go back and take a look at yeah if you recognize Ewing it up had knowledge that he had unsupervised access to children in Wisconsin from nineteen ninety six to the present contact detective Shelley feature of the Waukesha police department and then there's the number listed on that release and that number is widely available I will read if you're on the air but it's available in a number of places so I think there's a fear that this is like master and wish I'd probably not as many as here but that there may be multiple cases where do you think about it you know go back say it's twenty three years to go ahead the dirty old man you hear messed around with your kid you decide that it's not in the best interest to be the your kid are you to tell the authorities to think it's isolated it somebody came forward and I don't know I it may perhaps the information is out there I don't know what the victim came forward now for that resulted in this but it led to this investigation that nailed all of these things down with this guy Ewing there's so much that I can say about this that I don't have time to do it because I want to move on but one of the tragedies of this is it's making it very difficult for adults who want to do things like mentor usage boy scout leaders or just say a religious leader who what's the care for children talk to the kids and work with them or for that matter just people who like kids maybe you're the guy that actually is like you know you you are for sure but it's some key I think of like leave it to beaver from back in the fifties beaver would go hang around with the fire chief doesn't sit down that there's some kids are just like to hang out and there are people nice people and there's still a lot of nice people like to work with kids that court youth sports teach kids how to play chess each of an instrument all that sort of thing you just all get suspicious of all of it because the perverts increase like this right I mean you had a kid if you had somebody that was going to be a music instructor when your daughters are yeah you're probably would think nothing of it that I bet you think something of it now the other point that I want to make wow I said we were clearly naive as a society to this problem back in the sixties seventies eighties and even into the nineties we don't have any excuse now and we have got to stop this nonsense a one year sentence probation two year sentence even when you lock these people up for twenty years if they're thirty would you lock them up there with the fifty I have lost patience with the state legislature in Wisconsin both Republicans and Democrats in doing anything about the crime issue but of all the crimes we have where I believe we have been to Lee get sexual crimes against children is number one in the last look at the number of teachers that we've convicted recently they got one year of probation or two years maybe or you know a year and a half with work release and so on learning nothing from any of these cases let me move up we had in Milwaukee last night within an hour and a half of one another two people killed buy automobiles in both drivers were according to the police intoxicated and they happened very close to one another totally unrelated to what other the circumstances were completely different other dad in both cases it was the near west side of Milwaukee in both cases the drivers are charged with W. why and in both cases it was a pedestrian even the walks of life of the two victims could not be more different the brand new dean of our cat business school in fact he's been the subject of numerous news stories just the last few weeks because you just name to the job Joe Daniels I don't believe I've met him and I always cautious about this because maybe I did I don't remember it but I have heard a number of people speak highly of him that he's one of those people that buy a cat that had the support of just about everybody and everybody liked but they thought it was a great choice to be the deal so I trust in the street and have them Scott's six US six o'clock or so in the evening actually related that around eight so it was dark he apparently was crossing in the crosswalk when there was a green and Wisconsin but the driver was driving at a high rate of speed and was apparently intoxicated according to the authorities so I don't know if he was cross to get just started to get across to the person was driving so fast if the person beard who does there is an old W. why charge against the driver and we don't know anything more about it other than that in the meantime at twenty fifty Claiborne flyboard he has two blocks to the south of Wisconsin it individual was in the media you're allowed to stay out of the media he was on one of those

"Liquor pornography before salting because the statute of limitations patients expire which actually ties into other story. Later on how much you WANNA bet. He's plagiarizing other spotlight stories. But quite we pretend to use part of the driving himself so he's also biography Griffey said he won a pulitzer for his work with SPA. She did not see actually jury still out. Oh how was calling in spa movie like some guy planes playing collins rule. He says he will. He says I think the Ruffalo care based on positive. He's you know it's actually the name of a Boston Globe writer. Don't worry about that. So here's my this is to me. It's interesting and this has been a big issue in the gay community for years that they have fought back against so he writes about this. Dupree guy you know being a pedophile and protecting other profile right in in in giving boys liquoring pornography in the saw sexually assaulting them college. Next sentence is interesting to me. This raise my eyebrows. Actually admirals actually raised. You Pre with WHO with WHO with a straight face led the Catholic churches opposition gay marriage in Massachusetts resigned in two thousand four. So what what is he implying there. I think he's drawing a direct connection between gay men and pedophile yes. I think that's exactly what he's doing doing. WHOA that's I'd seen some Xinmei understanding and stuff I've read and you know that's not the case? I think that's a stereotype. Oh type that gay men have fought against for very long time. Gay People fighting for a long straight people by the way it's not true it's inaccurate. His argument is is well. Why does the Bishop have a problem with the gay? Men's choir when priest rape little boys right so gay people are are more likely to be pedophile and straight people understand why. It's according to threads in the Boston Globe. Is that not something Boston Globe with attack. Somebody else for suggesting you think they made that kind of curcumin or Gerry Callahan or anybody or Donald trump junior. And it'd be all so so I don't really how Allen's one of the gang. Okay say that it's okay. The basically while trying to you know placate the homosexual crowd is always trying to do is get twitter applause they prefer gay not. Lgbtq they do yes. We can't say homosexual anymore. I think it's kind of a dirty word. Is that really true. Yeah Okay Five Oh Bush Mumbo every guys one The gay crowd Trying to applause says something much worse than you know says that. They are more likely or linked to pedophilia. So the thing is he doesn't doesn't come out and explicitly say it but you can't read the column without thinking that this is the thrust of his point of course that's what he's saying is basically saying the bishop has homosexual tendencies or priests have homosexual tendencies. which in his mind raping little boys is a homosexual who it with a straight face led the Catholic church opposite? Gay Marriage. What he's saying he's gay? Yeah be why. Why is he saying he's gay because he went after a little boys? Gay Pedophilia Gay. And how does this even slip past. An editor wasn't edited. I'M GONNA ask you Kevin. Cullen story gets passed. It's not true. He wasn't directly making that link but if trump made that analogy they'd be digging into that and so the men but no oh reasonable person can make the best. Obviously I think part of it part of the reason he gets away with it is because he's insulting a conservative Catholic. Of course it's going to be fine with that right and maybe people aren't reading. Yeah reading with his assistant on the rent. You and I are very much only people who go actively seek occasional tip from somebody. Hey Cohen did this cone did that. But yeah you're right you and I I read this so I I read the story and I was like Oh whenever I see a Colin like church thing thing I figure. He's going to talk to his old priest buddy or something you know so always looking for that and read that I thought you know because again Nice father right father out for a drink. I think it's okay. It's okay father but I read them. I forgive you thought that is really a very strange thing to go with their visas. Season things and I know that community has been fighting that that That false charge for years. Yeah I mean these are just could Sicko so weird angle. But and it's tha angle that if one of us made that comment we might even say like there's no need for a cut that out or whatever whereas cullen can just do whatever he wants because there's he's not going to be in each. No one's going to misrepresent what he's trying to say early. Standing outside of the globe comments on that their late fifty comments on it only one or two point Oh and then it just became like this in fight about church versus gay marriage versus care. There's one person's like she's the seems like a very odd stereotype type two lump in the middle of this. Yeah it's an old school kind of way of thinking is that was that you commenting. chice will weird win very strange tweet think you know know nothing. I mean it's a it's a dated way to think which I'm honestly like if you if that's your opinion i. I have no problem with anyone's opinion about whatever but a bunch of people would get you a Lotta Shit for that wrong wrong wrong. It doesn't course DELLENBAUGH. Don't WANNA be fired. I I like the fact. He's still writing of course but I mean if humorous to me if you're a gay person and you're reading it you're like what the fuck is. This is his nineteen eighty yeah. It's just wrong you should root. I don't know I I read that and I thought she's that's typical. You know nobody will say anything but if the is that it's always the policy of it and by the way Mr Cullen did not respond to my invitation to come on the show. He didn't didn't know strange. It's hard to believe now. Maybe once we get todd bridges I say are these guys existence. How did you read this Kevin? Collin Collin do you think. Whoa we call mcgrory right now is is office number if you look them up as they're able to answer it we've never called him before? I don't think right office number this. I'm just curious. I wonder if he agrees with no It must be put in the paper. I mean that may not agree with it but must agree that it's amazing he survived. It's just incredible. Well Yeah you can do whatever you want at the Boston Globe. I guess you certainly can readings bio here another Douche. WHO's emigrant Draft Day. Your call is being. I love this at the end of his Bio mcgrory has authored four published novels a memoir. Mr About his family's pet rooster. Jesus Christ. It's pretty cool love to report that I read now with dive into complicated story but this ties in the story from yesterday. Red Bin Bloomberg Cabinet Catholic Church shields two billion dollars in assets limit abuse payouts. Essentially jury. Stephen yes I did such what they're doing just moving moving around money just a just a high from these fucking victims. They're using like Corporate Wall Street Restructure State and they've put all been known known for more Albuquerque's. Yeah it was in New Mexico so they take the archdiocese they take all its assets and they spread them out amongst the various churches. So if you're suing one church the amount you can recover in. Damages is limited by in some cases twenty five percent. Now you should be able to mind that. So what they did was a lot of these areas removed the statue of limitations. So once that happened I think Albuquerque one got sued by three hundred people who said in I forget the number. It's actually the star. I mean think about this for a second in You know people my life still go this in the Catholic Church.

Do you watch which is a normal person just a regular just gotta read it. It's fucking unbelievable. Its biggest. Ask Kiss you've ever seen in your life anyway. So this story actually. SO NAFTA SWILL SWOLLEN DOWN Booze. All It gives me a beer chemical. Another story Couple of days ago. The bishop of Springfield curious to hear your take on it in the globe. The the Bishop of Springfield might want to look in his own backyard and practice a little tolerance so His the basic premise of the story. If you don't know it is the Bishop in Springfield Massachusetts Stomping grounds right is not allowing a performance by the Pioneer Valley. Gay Men's chorus of the holiday concert didn't and Pioneer Valley Gay men's chorus the holiday concert at Saint Teresa's parish in south handling or easing up on the gays. Though we're starting to and I thought I thought the pope is basically gays. been praying for me. I think he has asked the church to be a little bit Tell US focused on gay issues. Yeah he's flamboyant. Yeah he's he's He may come out at some point and I think it's great if he does care by wave he's a gay guy. Great Mike here by pretending. You should marry appreciating just silly so So he basically is he gets into the story and how ridiculous it is now me like if I'm being consistent about this we talk about private businesses and Babson College Church. It'd be inclusive. I suppose but there I don't know weed we'd read the other story there definitely business. Should we be telling the church. Ou shouldn't sing at their concerts. No I mean if a columnist wants to inveigh yeah fine go ahead. The government shouldn't be doing anything about their private organization and and gay marriage cannot live without the doctrine about. I will say it is hurting your. If you're trying to widen your base. You're hurting yourself. I mean my advice I mean. This is a church in America's dying. Yeah but I mean his in the more you read about the idea that anybody would give Nicholas places insane but if they dilute their core principles. Maybe that's all I think they're internal debate. Also I think old priests are being gay is strange is weird. They understand it. Meanwhile you know just I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman right. Yeah I guess but you know but these are also people. Don't get married. Let's the thing with with all these issues so like that stuff affleck that has driven me away from ever being involved in any religion at least with a church or anything like that. So that's that's the downside to that that's what's going to happen is people are going to be turned turned away. I don't know why we have to be like no. You have to let us in. They don't they don't they. Don't want us and I've talked to. My parents were religious but not overly so in my brothers and I of all straight we're not religious at all And I mentioned more my dad my mom the last couple of weeks and my dad's religion was there forming. The mental ought to me yet. A friend a great family friend honestly is a great guy. WHO's a priest in one of his best friends for sixty years and was with them at the end and they talked and he talked about God? Who was there to actually really nice to watch the so wonderful thing? I mean the fact that his that that particular Catholic. My Dad was Catholic. This particular church somebody hundred miles away from where we live just one particular. The guy doesn't want a certain group to sing that. Really get in the way of you know. It's just feels very complicated. I also didn't seem like this was an idea that the bishop came up with himself. and Said Hey I think these guys it was he got pressure from Parishioners from my church I mean it's not just the The priests or the bishops who are very conservative in like old Catholic under the poor the point now in society where you can't say now. By the way I voted I always say this in the Californian prop- properly I think it was fifteen years ago. I voted for gay marriage. I think gay marriage which of course I personally think gay marriage should be legal. I think that they have the same show the same rights. They should be allowed to get married. I have no issue with them and it is and it is but but let's just say that some people don't in their core belief you want them to change they just don't think now they think that they should. There should be unions but they think think the actual marriage is between a man and the woman. I disagree with that. What am I what am I? You're you're denying people basic human rights so if you have that but no you're not like a gay gay person and says that my right to marry is a human rights. You're saying it's like you saying so. What if they don't think that You know women should have the right to vote so but the right to vote. There was no version version of Civil Civil Union for that. Well okay so we're GONNA have second class citizenship for marriage for us what they're saying but that's not really true. That's that's what they would. It's not it's not full equality I yeah. I don't feel I actually don't agree with that. I think marriage is fine. I also think civil unions would be as a fine compromise. I'm just saying I personally don't care your minimum. You're minimizing it as. Yeah I know what I'm saying is you're saying oh they just don't believe that gay people should be able to get married. They should just do civil unions. It's just a difference of opinion but for gay people the Left. It's a matter of human rights so they take a little bit more serious when you do you think that's the same thing as as Water Fountains No. But but that's what that's what they would do. You think that's even close. No I don't I'm just telling you what I understand it for. I've had I agree by the way I'm for gay marriage but I'm just saying and by the way I think there are some old people who think that gay people should get married all in. It's wrong an evil. There's a certain quantity of that as well but then there's some people who say well wait a minute. The definition of marriage marriage between men and women. There should be civil to me. It's again you're not going to have a discussion because there's going to dry up if you even say that. You're a homophobe. Or big data. What Steve is saying so keen had the argument? Why not just say hey? This club isn't for me like if you're gay or you know I'm going to say well this point though. I mean you could say well then why you know why imprint. Tricky say that Jamie Robinson maybe this churches in for me. Oh yes well I get you know what I mean. So it's sort of that. I I understand that argument. You though we'll fuck you kind of I would feel we'll fuck off while if you're a Christian there are powerful arguments that the Catholic church is the only true church. So if you're if you're trying to exclude these people you're basically saying you know you know route. They're saying there's no room for I if I don't believe that. Jesus Christ was this this miracle worker son of God. But let's say there was I personally. Don't think Jesus Christ have promised to guys get married if he's really. I don't think that it would be at the benevolent L. Loving caring but suddenly really anti-gay marriage. It seems very against brand. I think he would have a lot of problems with the way the church has treated gay people. I do that more problems with the church than that right. Yeah guest list. Yes but you know but I will say this you know before we get to my Colin issue. Here you're a guy who was raised or woman who was raised Catholic. And you believe in God and you believe in the church and you believe in this. You believe in that and you're gay that cannot be easy right into the issue comes to me is a hard thing and then Saad you are genuinely religious guy or woman who lives in South Hadley. Yeah you're thirty eight years old. Whatever you're married you're an apartment you have kids adopt whatever? In fact in this happens I could see them being like well fuck you. Yeah no I mean. Of course I get that so it's sort of a complicated issue and does not help at all because of churches so fucking inflexible and we'll get it believe me it's we'll get I fucking fucking hate. The Catholic Church Are Bucking Disgusting Most Criminal Organization the history of mankind. Nobody even closer fucking disgusting so anyway This guy by the current Bishop which is again of this of this area his predecessor was this guy. Thomas Pre right yes in Springfield he was is the first American bishop indicted Umbrian Collins on. If it's true or not I.

"That will never mislead you never deceive you. And that's Christ. In his word he is the truth. So there's some good questions where do you hope to spend eternity. Hope it seven you can know for sure right here and now so that really is the issue. Is that a Catholic based on the teaching. They're receiving and everything they know about God. They've learned the church they can't know they can't know where they're going is. It's it's based on what they do rather than what crisis done And so if someone thinks they're going basically they would just be seen as proud sure. How could you possibly know that? Uh Uh F- that good. How do you show a person in a in a quick kind of way not that we have to be quick with everybody we talk to? How do you just get to the point of showing a Catholic that getting to heaven being right with God is not based on what they do to verses that have said so many Roman Catholics free would be a phasing two eight nine four by grace you have been saved through faith? It is not of yourselves. It is the gift of God not not of works so that no man they boast and you ask a Catholic. What does that mean to you? It's not of yourself. It's not of works. So so. Why are you trusting what you're doing? And then that of course leads to the question. Well how then can I be saved and then you point to Christ as the all sufficient savior now officials to eighty nine. It says we we are saved by by grace and yet within Catholicism one of the issues that comes up is just an understanding of that word grace thanks to a Catholic the word grace it can mean something different than it means to a Christian. Can you talk about does a paragraph twenty twenty seven of the catechism MHM says. Catholics must merit the grace's necessary for eternal life. So the question then is how do you merit the unmerited favor of God because because that's what Biblical grace's it's the unmerited favor it's given freely by God and so you have to define terms when you're witnessing the Catholics wchs that interesting in mormonism or something similar in that same verse. The Book Mormon I believe is where it says you are saved by grace through faith after all all you can do so. So they're hitting on that same issue then. The the false religions do not want to point people towards the grace of God and that really is the difference between the Bible and not just Catholicism but every other religion it seems like just the issue of grace versus works. You know another question. I like to ask anyone whether it be Catholic or Christian or anyone. That doesn't even know. God Yeah why did Jesus after die boy. It get your right to the core of the Gospel. I've as I I'll talk to people who say they go to a Christian church and they can't. They can't answer that question sometimes. Yeah that's a great with all stars with the wages of Senna's death and Jesus went to the Cross dissatisfied divine justice dying in the place of repenting centers is so that they will not have to face the punishment of God. Yeah now just WANNA ask a couple more questions here. Ju just these are things that come up when talking a to Catholics specifically the one thing that Catholics love to say. Is You know what you wouldn't even have the Bible. If it wasn't for my church. The Catholic Church gave gave you the Bible. How do you answer that? Well there's a lot of ways to answer that the number one. The cather church wasn't even in existence when the Old Testament was written in so so we have the Old Testament in spite of the Catholic Church so usually talking about the new test when they make that claim and so in the New Testament how we know from scripture got inspired forty different men over fifteen hundred year period on three different continents all from different walks of life they penned the inspired word of God. The Pappas those letters were passed around the different churches people recognize them as holy scripture even before a castle convene in to represent them as part of the cannon and so the Early Church knew that these were the inspired writings of the apostles and Many were willing to die. For the truth found in these sacred writings they scriptures and so they were first person eye witnesses to the life and Resurrection Direction of Christ. And so we know from The Early Church that people that understood the scriptures they knew they were inspired writings of God. We see from Second Timothy. I just happened to have the scripture open. All scripture is given by inspiration of God and profitable for doctrine for reproof for correction for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete thoroughly equipped for every good work. All scripture is given by an inspiration of God so this is God breathed he. He breathed the scriptures into the apostles who penned into the proper as and. That's how we know that scripture is from God I also tell Catholic is like set. We have the Bible in spite of your religion because it was your religion the place it on the list of forbidden books of the council trucks and another thing. I tell Catholic like since you think you gave us the Bible. Why don't you abide in it so true? You gave us the Bible but most Catholics. Don't read it. That's a great point by by the way the cannon was primarily to eliminate spurious books now when you say the cannon you mean the collection of the council because establish the cannon Okay was initially to eliminate spurious books. There's many books vying for cannon this city but the the councils he's got together and said no these are the inspired writings and these are not the picture people give that this church council had a meeting and they said okay. We're GONNA put this this book in the Bible. We're going to put that book in the Bible. But you're saying that wasn't at all. They already had their scriptures and they were getting rid of books that were originally not inspired. Okay another issue that comes up with Catholics. This is one of the big ones. Is the assertion that Peter was the first pope and ever since. That's him there have been a succession of popes and now the pope is here today. He is the authority from God and they base that on. Jesus called Peter the Rock and he said on this rock. I will build my church and so how do you address. Yes Matthew Sixteen eighteen and she's just asked the question who the men say that I am and Peter Said you're the Christ the son of the Living God and Jesus said this was revealed to you not by man but my father in heaven and Peter Upon this this rock I will build my church. What did Peter just do? You just made a profession of faith divinely inspired by God and Heaven As to who Christ is so anyone who who makes that same profession of faith revealed by God in heaven. WE'LL BE PART OF CHRIST church and we know that Jesus wasn't referring to Peter as the rock because because a few verses later Jesus talks about going to Jerusalem to die for his church before he builds it and pater said Lord may never be Jesus said get behind me Satan. You have in mind the things of men rather than the things of God. So this doesn't sound like Jesus would build his church on on a fallible man who just got Satan who just said Peter was the mouthpiece of the devil so clearly scripture tells us that the Rock was Christ Christ. Paul said that I granted and we say all the way through the psalms. God was the Rock even Peter referred to himself as a fellow elder. And then and one more thing that I have heard many Catholics. Say in you know we my point out the fact that the Bible says it were to not have any idols before us where to only pray to God and Catholics will pray to Mary. They do a lot of things in regards to marry and one of the things that Catholics will say. You know. They'll say we're not praying to Mary. We're not worshiping Mary where praying through Mary. It's like if I wanted something from you. I might ask your mom and she might put in a good word for me more. They might say something like you know. We're not actually worshiping her. We're just venerating her. What does that even mean? Like what are they doing there. Well well they are praying to Mary and they start off with Hail Mary. That's addressing the very petitioning her. The reason Catholics feel comfortable praying to Mary. He is because the Catholic Church has created another Mary. It's a perversion of the true Mary. Mary herself in the Bible. Yeah okay okay. Mary herself needed a savior. She called God her savior. Only centers need savior and so for Catholics to pray to Mary because she's she's been given a lot of divine attributes. She's said to be the media tricks of all grace. She said to be the advocate which is a title given to Christ. She's she's the Queen of Heaven crisis the King so everything that they've given the Christ they Passover and given attribute to marry they haven't called her omniscient this show or Omni present but she would have to be one point two billion Catholics or praying to her the only way she could hear all of them is if she were. I'm Nisshin Omnipresence presence. And she'd know she'd ups all languages and I challenged Catholics Show me one verse in the Bible where God fearing person praise to anyone. One other than God. Well you want to you. Want them to get on the Bible Challenge. Yeah find the verse and maybe well. They're in there. The rest of their faith will be challenged as they read the scriptures refute their religion. Well Mike you've given us a lot of good information here as we go to our Catholic friends the neighbors this can get very heated. It's not always easy to talk to someone especially when it's issues of religion things that are so close to people and in your talking about people's Traditions and their families and they've grown up with this stuff. What advice can you give us? As far as if I'm going to talk to someone about you Catholicism and wanting to get them to see the deception behind it what advice can you give us as far as not turning it into a big argument or a fight or you know. What are we as Christians need to do? As we're reaching out to Catholics with the truth of the Gospel well keep in mind unbelievers. Do Not WanNA WANNA be preached at so unaffected. Way is to ask them questions that we've talked about but we never can't argue anyone to heaven. All we're called to do is to deliver the a message from the pages of scripture to the person's ear. Yeah Gaza responsible. Take it from the year to the heart so we have been successful when we have shared the word of God the Gospel of Christ with them. And I encourage when you're witnessing the Catholics. If they have their own Bible sit down and open it point them to scriptures ask them what is God saying there and that way it eliminates any arguments because it's their interpretation. They can't say it's yours because you're not interpreting right there just recently you're right and you were saying and early. You'll even do that with their Catholic version viable because they're told not to trust anything from a Protestant church so you eliminate an obstacle by using their Bible all and they've got the same sixty six books that we do. They've added a few but we don't have to go there. Be Christ like speak. The truth in love have compassion and recognize. I said not. Everybody is going to humble themselves under the sovereign word of God. If you sense that they have not a teachable spirit. Maybe it's time to to leave a Gospel track and say let's get together again and talk some more whenever the discussion starts to get heated or ornamented. That's probably a time to to leave Gospel tracking and come back later. Yeah and we can't ever forget the power of prayer and this is a spiritual battle and unless the spirit of God is is involved in the word of God will not place any impact on the person. That's hearing it. We know that There's two things necessary confer conversion the word of God Moscow Osco forest and the spirit of God and a spring conviction. So that's why it's so important to pray that God would open their eyes. Open their hearts. As the Open Lydia's heart and then impre the word of God would be the imperishable see that finds fertile soil in their heart begins to grow and bring forth life. Amen Okay and so. If we're going to UH and that conversation and leave a Gospel track we are going to want to leave some of Mike Proclaiming the truth tracks. Mike if you could just tell us one more time what is. What is your a website where we could find these at? The website is proclaiming the Gospel Dot. Org We have six different gospel tracks all designed to reach people that are lost on religion.

"Regarding your story. Current fixed already about this lady said went to the sexual abuse with the priest. What am I it it? It really creates a lot of damage. My two sisters in the fifties where sexually abused as a young young child by a priest. We the only way we could week we grew up in a small farm. The only way we could get away from this guy with running hide my mother, she she went to the Saudis. Nothing got done in the end. She to protect us children. She decided she better sell the farm. They get out of that community. But she did. I'm being honest who makes the offer on the farm. See all blink fathers. And put pressure on her to sell the farm at a low price. Well, luckily, enough, she had the the the energy to to stick it out. And she did finally get a better price. But how how these things affect one's live. You know? I I see how affected my two sisters that just it's just terrible. Just terrible. Then nothing gets done. Right. That's the other pressure. Pope Francis has the Roman Catholic church should fight an all out battle against sex-abuse. He addressed nearly two hundred bishops then senior leaders at the end of a four-day meeting. The Vatican said, it would publish a guidebook for bishops that will help them understand their duties and tasks on abuse. Nikki Batiste is in Rome with some disappointed reaction, nor we spoke with three clergy abuse survivors today, they want to know why the Catholic church has still not laid out concrete steps to stop child sex abuse. How are you feeling after whom the pope's speech? I don't think our children are any safer now than four days ago. What would you say to survivors and victims listening who might be disappointed by this summit? It's a long journey. Don't give up stay United, and we will get this done to protect all children on the world in the time since February summit cardinal, George.

Six months suspended sentence for failing to report allegations of sexual abuse of minors by priests and in Costa Rica, police raided Roman Catholic church offices to search for information about a priest accused of sexual abuse Justice systems around the world continue to hand down sentences for priests who abuse children, but survivors are left to wonder what punishment the church will administer to its own.

"Podcast. Download and subscribe online now. Awake. Cold, Luke in the eyes of one of the worst flies is the church has ever experienced. I'm Trico Harlan, the Washington Post thrown bureau chief, and I'm here that it can city for the first day of pope Francis landmark four day summit on clerical sexual abuse. This is the first time that any pontiff in the history of the Roman Catholic church has gathered the bishops from across the world, the leaders of the Piscopo conferences to discuss this topic and Francis is doing this under enormous pressure. You could say that this is perhaps the most high high pressure moment of his papacy. There's only one reason you're here. Only one to get them to stop doing this to Eur in Rome. Tell me the mood among survivors. We are hopeful that on Monday morning. We hear someone will have the courage to take decisive action if this summit ends and the pope doesn't implement full on zero tolerance. Then what I would say Francis. This is the moment. This is your time clean up your church. Get rid of the pedophile 's do it and do it now. Get you to speak into the mic. Okay. Is that good? Yes. Get it. Leona? Thanks for joining me back in studio again, thanks for having me. Nikki you've come back from Rome in just a moment ago. We were talking about what the media coverage was like there compared to what the media coverage in Canada is like what did you experience there? That's different from here. Well in Rome, it was shocking from the moment that we came out. We held the first press conference. I couldn't believe I've never been in a media scrum like that. And what we heard from the police was this the only time they've ever had that much press. There is when a pope is elected. So there was a lot of media focus on the papal summit and it being important. I was inundate basically didn't have time to get over jet lag. It was reporter after reporter after reporter asking for interviews. We were having to turn reporters down so to come back home. And then I'd posted on Facebook and Twitter and people had commented within my own circle. But others had no idea that this was even going on and. I saw. Yeah. There was one really good article. I felt Canadian Press article that was in the national post, but it was it was sort of relegated to a side. Call him that you could hardly see no photo or anything. And yet they were media spreads all over in Spain, Germany, Mexico Ecuador that we were being fed. So it was just interesting to come back and see why is there not the media interest here and have you come to any conclusions on that. Why you're not getting the same media coverage here in Canada that you you got overseas. I wonder if people just wish that this issue was finished. I wonder if it doesn't sell newspapers, I wonder if the people who who buy newspapers are more conservative and churchgoing people that don't want to hear about this. And yet they would be the ones that most need to hear that. This is still going on the issue hasn't been properly. Addressed you went to the Vatican in hopes that the issue would finally be addressed in a big way, and that summit was unprecedented. What was it like for you when you were representing Canada as the only Canadian who spoke to the organizing committee? I was pretty honored to be there. And yet I also felt that the night before the end echo organization that I'm part of ending clergy abuse. We had a meeting with the other people from echo that we're invited in the room, and I felt really bad because one of my colleagues my colleagues Evelyn Mazdas, an indigenous survivor, she wasn't invited into that room. And so I was stuck with this conflict of wanting to be there knowing that only twelve had been invited and appreciate the privilege of that. But also recognizing that that privilege wasn't afforded to my indigenous colleague, I didn't have control over who was invited. And so I went. In there. And we and I had a chat, and she got to say what she wanted to say. In the press conferences, she had men understood how the meeting was organized, but it just goes to the lack of planning and foresight that needed to be in that meeting..
"catholic church" Discussed on The Argument
"Now, he's become the highest ranking figure to be defunct in recent memory. Meanwhile, a new book on homosexuality in the Vatican stirred the debate over the church's rules on celibacy and the prevalence of closeted gay men in the priesthood Andrew Sullivan, and I have been arguing about our shared church really ever since he allowed me to guess blog for him many many years ago, and he's been writing about all of this for New York magazine lately. So I've invited him to join me for intra Catholic conversation. Andrew welcome to the argument. Thank you. It's lovely to be here in love the to talk to you again. It's been too long. It it has indeed. So let's start with I guess a sort of big picture practical question, what do you think caused the church's sex abuse, scandal, and more importantly, why is it still this ongoing scandal after so many years of revelations attempted solutions, attempted summits? And so on. Well, that's big question. I think the answer is quite complicated. Many institutions have child abuse problems. I mean, it's obviously not just the rim Catholic church. I mean, we just we've been seeing all the denominations find this to. So you start with a baseline depressing fact that this goes on and we becoming more aware of it. But then I also think that the way the church closets. It's gay priests and the way in which it has an extremely high resistance to giving scandal as the formal word would be about the church that it has a culture of secrecy and hierarchy in which is almost designed to prevent these things being exposed quickly and swiftly and properly. And then I think we do have a problem with the fact that the priesthood is is. Overwhelming overwhelmingly disproportionately gay, let's put it that way. And that that has led to so many priests being in the closet and celibacy being what it is. It's a process, it isn't a sudden reinvention the human being it's a difficult task for most priests and many of them occasionally will fail. Most priests have something in their background that could be used against them. And especially in the case of gay priests who would be targeted both for violating celibacy in the instances that they might have. And also for just being gay itself. And therefore what emerged over the years was really a culture of secrecy in which everyone had something on everybody else. It was a sort of omerta, a mutually assured destruction of the closet, and that it self. I think helped cover up the sex abuse and compounded in this way. If someone would notice something untoward happening with another priest and wanted to expose it the person he was trying to expose would easily be able to come back in most cases and find something against that person to get him outed or to exact revenge, and this kind of allowed a culture in which of don't ask don't tell not just about sex-abuse with children at lessons, but also about sex in general with adults and. And I think that contributed to this being compounded over the years in ways that a really too horrifying to even contemplate..

"He did he did. And I don't know if he's listening to this program or a he's just following along on Twitter. But he said, basically what he wants to see out of this meeting. That's going on in Rome is number one. Start listening to survivors number to understand the patterns of abuse and cover up number three involve law enforcement in the solution and commit to zero tolerance. But there's another issue that he lists is the fifth thing he'd like to see done. And it's something we have. Discussed on this show. Which is he thinks the church needs to turn over its secret archives, which document the abuse and cover up that it shouldn't take a search warrant for the church to to do the right thing here. They it's as he wrote they need to come clean if they truly want to heal. Now, what exactly these secret archives? What are we talking about here? These are the the records of the church of all the complaints. That have been have come to them how they have handled them how these priests and bishops of were, you know, dealt with afterwards how who was involved in the decision making how the decisions were made. Now, there are a lot of concerns because not every accusation is is a valid one. But I do think that these are the kinds of records the church does need to to put forward if not publicly at least to the authorities in various states and various jurisdictions. Who are investigating these crimes? And yes, they are crimes sister Simone desist, become touchy at a certain point from a law enforcement perspective. I mean, it feels like this could potentially if a diocese or archdiocese wanted to fight back. Become a first amendment issue falls into that kind of you know, that freedom of religion in the hands off role that the government is supposed to play with religion to an extent. It feels that could get very sticky legally if push came to shove, well, I think it could. And that's been what many bishops have relied on in terms of protecting their priests. I think the the place where it becomes challenging is in the fact that the some accusations are made in prese are not responsible that it's not an accurate allegation. But I do think what's happening is that the practice of abuse is not the practice of religion. And that that. For that reason. Bit diocese had been coming forward a releasing names of those credibly accused and that proactive work, I think has been a good step forward. And so I think it's quite possible that this could be done diocese by diocese throughout the country. There is at least one part of what attorney general Josh Shapiro from Pennsylvania said he wants that several of our listeners certainly agreed with including Sam who left a note in our inbox. Hello, this is Sam from Baltimore Maryland. And I'm hoping that the pope and the bishops get together and decide on his Eero tolerance policy. I still go to the church, but my faith has indeed been shaken, and I struggle with this a lot I'm hoping that they find a way to admit their mistakes and allow the faith and everything that is good about the Catholic church to move forward. The only way that I believe that can happen is if there is a full, man..

"I mean nationally he was just considered a a real leader of both our faith in our values and to find out that he was preying upon people from the confessional, just suggests a, you know, just a a level of evil beyond. I think what what any of us had even wanted to imagine their McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington who's been defrocked. Exactly. What's it been like in your parish Lee? Karen, we have had some some really difficult conversations. And I I must say I I have to give our pastor. I belong to blessed sacrament, which is a parish like right on the DC Maryland line. I and I have to give our pastor a lot of credit and the priests there for opening up this conversation, but people are feeling betrayed and hurt and and really frustrated sister Simone. What's your perspective of what's been going on in and around at least this area with regards to this fiscal DC is a city that has a lot of very strong Catholic roots? It's a very Catholic town and a lot of ways. Wh what's your perspective of how people are dealing with this right now. Well, I think there's a lot of anguish. I think of my neighbor, I I live in an apartment complex in my neighbor, who's been a music minister for decades in the Catholic church has stopped going to church and has given away his cO because he cannot bear to play the piano and associates so much with the church and with this betrayal that he feels. So he gave his piano, he gave his piano away, which has been his life, which has me really worried for him. And I'm engaging him in conversation. But I think that's the pieces that so often we wanna look at it as a criminal act. Action. But I think the the the pain that is done to people's faith and to the trust. We placed in leaders is a anguish that I think our city our nation. Our world is is trying to process sister. I don't want you to break anybody's confidences. But can you kind of broadly characterize the kinds of conversations that you've been having with people overall? This is this the sort of thing where most folks can kind of separate the faith from the church has this been kind of tearing people away from their faith at the core. Like what what's it been like trying out so people through? Well, I think that my experience is that sense of betrayal that people we trusted that we thought we could follow and many people have talked to me about the who do you turn to especially in a time. That's so chaotic in our nation, and then chaotic in the church where we're trying to find some grounding for our values. But I think the other piece that is painful that I hear. About is that the approach of leadership has been more on the legal lawyer side than on the pastoral side. And there has not been a collective leadership weeping for what has been done. There has not been a movement. That says how horrified we are pleased. Forgive us and then movement together to move forward. Jon allen. Let's talk about this four day meeting that started today, give us a sense of who is attending the meeting. Pope francis. Obviously about one hundred some odd bishops from around the world talk about the folks who were there you. So that's about one hundred ninety people who were inside the Vatican meeting room where this is taking place as you indicated pope Francis is taking part in the meeting. It features the presidents of national bishops conferences from all over the world. So every country in the world, more or less has a conference of all the Catholic bishops. In that country. They elect presidents. So in some sense. These guys I suppose represent all of the bishops of the world. Then you also have a couple of dozen heads of eastern churches that are in communion with Rome. So for instance, the creek Catholic church in Ukraine, or the Armenian, Catholic, church, etc. You have the upper echelon of the Vatican's power structure. So all these senior heads Vatican departments, and you have about twenty two leaders of women's and men's religious orders in the church..

You see religion on one hundred fronts. Losing the argument and start thinking. This is the thinking, atheist worldwide. And here we go again, another quote, unquote raking story about sexual abuse allegations from within the Catholic church and the cover up an article posted at CNN on the twenty-first of this month, said abuse allegations have been leveled at the Catholic church for decades. If this is news. First part of the article says for more than three decades. The Catholic church has been rocked by sex abuse scandal spanning the globe and for decades, the church has been accused of protecting itself rather than the victims of child sexual abuse. And it lists the major scandals and revelations, including the most recent one in Pennsylvania, grand jury released a report this month detailing, decades of alleged sexual abuses by priests and cover-ups by bishops. The report said internal documents from six Catholic diocese in Pennsylvania. Some held in a secret archive to which only the Bishop had a key showed that more than three hundred predator priests have been credibly, accused of sexually abusing more than one thousand child victims. Pope Francis issued an unusually blunt letter. This is c. n. n.'s words six days after the reports release, acknowledging quote with shame and repentance, the Catholic churches, failure to act writing quote. We showed no care for the little ones. We abandoned them the letter directly. The Pennsylvania report, which detail the experiences of at least one thousand survivors victims of sexual abuse, the abuse of power and of conscience at the hands of priests over a period of approximately seventy years. Looking ahead. The pontiff said the church was working on a zero tolerance policy on abuse and cover-ups friend, activist and attorney. Andrew Seidel is director of strategic response from the freedom from religion foundation, and he issued an article on the fifteenth of this month called report on p. abuse confirms it's time to quit the Catholic church. I'm going to read the whole article with Andrews permission, but before I do, I wanted to talk to Andrew Seidel himself, Andrew, it's good to talk to you how you doing man, I am well, it's always a pleasure to come. Join you on this wonderful show. How often do we find ourselves talking about the Catholic church? It just like this broken record. And here we are again right far too often. It is broken records. A great analogy, it's it's this terrible cycle of abuse assaults cover up and then repeat. So you've been going through. Through a bunch of the documents. I saw some lament on Twitter from you. That was like, you know, man, this is kind of a dark day because you've been going through in-depth a lot of the material about the cover up. So let's start there. Would you find as I read the entire Pennsylvania grand jury report, I really don't recommend that people do that. If you get it it it is. It's haunting. I genuinely I could not sleep the two nights after I read it, I was on the in the car on the way to work with Liz, you know, my better head who's also turning here, f, f, r f, and I had to pull over because I couldn't driving out as I was so broken up about what is happening. We are just we are sacrificing children on the altar of this Catholic fairytale just thousands and thousands of children are being raped, and it is being covered up and it happens again any. Again, and again, and the details in the report are harrowing. But the crazy thing about it is that as he said, it's nothing new. This is not the first of these reports and it's not. The less of these reports is just happens to be the one that is the most recent. And you know it's a little bit more. It's a little. It's got a little bit better documentation than some of the other reports because the Pennsylvania grand jury actually got access to some of the secret archives, and that is the phrase the church uses to describe their. They have a secret archive of documents that they use to track the predators in their own church and wear. They move them around and this isn't even the material from all the diocese..

The first rung of the ladder is I said earlier is get yourself are deigned if you can't get yourselfer day, essense, you'll live in in the in the wilderness.

Well, I was a Catholic seminary in about thirty years ago. In fact, I completed that some Inari, but I did decided not to get deigned. I saw low unholy behavior by the priests and the students. But the point I wanted to make is this on when and what I observed was when the young men entered the seminary, there rather humble and very devoted and dedicated. By the time they get ordained a change in their mentality develops, and they seem to have the idea that they're above the law. They can do or say anything and they become very far djing. At least this was the case thirty years ago. When I saw was the way they treated one nother as they became closer to this receiving these magical powers if they used to refer to them, it's horrible. Yeah. At that time, at least I don't know what it's like. Now back then the seminaries were just private clubs or kathak gays. That was pretty much what it was all about. The priests who ran the place, they knew what was going on and they just they, they promoted this sense that you will better than Frank if I may am your your first hand experiences? Absolutely. Fascinating.
