Catholic School Promotes Gender Confusion
"And I looked to a Catholic school to be an ally in our fight to break our daughter free from the grip of gender confusion. We were naive. Our daughter now 15 was 13 when she was coached into believing that she was born in the wrong body, and could and could change to be the opposite sex. This led her to self loathing. But instead of finding a partner within the Roman Catholic Church, we discovered that our local Catholic high school had adopted procedures that promote transgenderism. This situation has left us with no safe place safe place to educate our child and a profound feeling of disappointment and abandonment. As I previously wrote for the daily signal, our daughter's transgender identity came with little warning. She started 9th grade at a public charter high school in the fall of 2020. But due to COVID-19 didn't actually set foot in a classroom.

Exorcism: When Modern Science and Psychology Is Not Enough
"But you must understand that your unfortunately something of a rarity not just in the roman catholic church but in christendom. There are many people who don't go near the stuff they will send you to a psychiatrist as though and by the way. Most psychiatrists unlike you. They don't have this category they. They don't say well. We tried this this this. It looks like it's they don't even have that category so there are people dealing with. Maybe it's diagnosis schizophrenia. This is that there is a demonic element and they don't even know who might be able to help them with that. Well some things. Are i think in some circles. Darden to chase pope francis actually has the vatican's ask every diocese in the world to have an exorcist. Now they don't i think in the us we probably have maybe one hundred some odd exorcists so maybe half the diocese had them but so there is this growing awareness. But right and there's a lot of people say well we've got me on this because modern psychology and science can can explain everything but the reality is some things that happened or not says them. You can't explain. Naturally i mean. Look i have been in the room within I've been right next to people who have been manifesting demons and when you see it. It's very hard to believe that the person's making it up or they're just generally crazy. It really does seem like wh what we're talking
Where Mormon Doctrine and Biblical Doctrine Diverge
"You're saying that there are real sticking points. Unavoidable problems between what the mormon faith teaches unequivocally. And what the bible says unequivocally so this is not just you know point of view or or something like that because i think that many people could make the case that what the roman catholic church teaches is is right. That people can twist things in other words. You can have a conversation there about. Do they believe this. Exactly this exactly. But you're saying that the lines are really bright and bold that separate mormon doctrine from biblical doctrine. In this case. So i guess my question is do you When you're talking about that you say that the lds church teaches that we can become like god. How is that different from somebody saying that. Look the scripture says that were made in his image and we will be made to be like him through the process of sanctification. And that kind of thing. I think that the eastern orthodox call it. Theo cysts in other words. That's kind of the point is that we're supposed to be more and more like him. So that's not really a problem. Where does it become a problem. Yeah so so as you mentioned biblically through the process of vacation and the holy spirit dwelling in us. We are conformed to the image of christ. We've been having airship with christ right in the kingdom of heaven but that's not what mormonism teaches. They actually teach not that we become like god but that we ourselves become gods and so eventually once. You've progressed to this. Point of god hood you then have the power authority to create your own worlds to populate those world with your spiritual and go through the same process that we are then in on this earth and so it is a complete perversion of the idea that we somehow can attain that which god now has and so And just the exclusivity of the claim that the church is the only institutional organization that has the correct power authority from god right there several organizations in the world that claim that authority in the mormon church claims that they are the actual church that jesus instituted during his earthly ministry and only with the authority and the proper ordinances contained within that organization can an individual live eternally in the presence of

Biden's Catholicism Could Influence The Abortion Debate, Activists Say
"President Biden is only the second Catholic president of the United States. He's also a supporter of abortion rights. Ah, position at odds with official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. During the first White House press briefing of the Biden administration, a reporter from a Catholic network asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki about Biden's abortion policies. I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly. He started his day attending church with his family this morning. NPR's Sarah McCammon examines what binds Catholicism's could mean for the abortion debate for Catholic activists like Marjorie Dannenfelser. President Biden's high profile example of a Catholic who supports abortion rights is troubling. It's a negative example of a deep and important moral issue that is being debated in this country. Dannenfelser is president of the Susan B. Anthony list, which has worked for years to help confirm conservative Supreme Court justices. She's particularly disturbed by Biden's embrace of a broader push among Democrats to repeal the Hyde amendment, which prohibits federal funding for most abortions. Ah, position he took in 2019 while running for the Democratic presidential nomination. After decades of supporting hide. The church itself has not changed. And its view ever on the dignity of human life and the need for its protection. He can't bring the Catholic Church along with him because of his political needs. But for those who like to see the church take a more permissive stance on issues including abortion, Biden's election is an opportunity. Jamie Manson is president of Catholics for choice. There are many issues in which Catholics are descending from the bishops and seeing that these are complex moral issues, whether it's same sex marriage, whether it's contraception or whether it's abortion Holding suggests a majority of American Catholics support abortion rights in most or all cases, and most Catholic women say they've used contraception, which the church also opposes. With a conservative Supreme Court majority and Biden in the White House. Manson predicts continued battles over issues including conscience exemptions, for example, for pharmacists who object to dispensing the morning after pill or employers who oppose including contraceptive coverage in their health plans. What I hope one of the impacts on public policy will be is to say, Listen, that is not what religious freedom is about religious freedom is about No one being oppressed or having their civil rights loss because of individual religious beliefs. Conservative Catholics, meanwhile, worry Biden will roll back Trump administration policies that they've seen as a victories for religious liberty. Already, the administration has said Biden is preparing to reverse the Mexico City policy, which prohibits US funding for organizations that perform or refer patients for abortion and other countries. But a study in the journal The Lancet found that the policy actually increased the abortion rate in some countries, most likely because it also reduced access to contraception. Natalia Imperatori Lee is a progressive Catholic theologian and religious studies professor at Manhattan College in New York. So I think the biting from a policy perspective is going to do things that end up Reducing the number of abortions, however, divided the rank and file. The church's position remains the same. On Inauguration Day, The U. S conference of Catholic Bishops released a statement praising Biden's piety but expressing deep concern about several of his positions, including his support for abortion rights. Sarah McCammon.

Supreme Court Rules New York Cannot Limit Attendance At Houses Of Worship Due To COVID-19
"The Supreme Court ruled late last night's to block New York from enforcing attendance limits on houses of worship. President Trump's new Appointee, Justice Amy Cockney, Barrett, was in the majority on the decision. It's a shift from two previous cases in Nevada and California this year, when Barrett's predecessor, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was on the court. That's news nations. Geez Aggie reporting. The court's action won't have any immediate impact since the two groups that sued as a result of the restrictions. The Roman Catholic Church, an Orthodox Jewish synagogues are no longer subject to them. The group had challenged the attendants, limits and areas designated red and orange zones, but they're now in the less restrictive yellow zones.
Supreme Court blocks strict COVID-19 restrictions on New York houses of worship
"Of New York state's strict attendants limits on religious gatherings. The rules were designed to help slow the spread of the Corona virus. It's 5 to 4 decision highlights tensions that have grown during the pandemic between secular leaders and some religious groups that also opens a window on the new makeup of this court. Now that Amy Cockney Barrett is on the bench. NPR's Brian Mann is in Westport in upstate New York and has been following developments have Ryan Hey, happy Thanksgiving, Ari. Same to you. New York has seen tens of thousands of covert 19 deaths. So what immediate impact is this ruling going to have on the state's attempt to fight the pandemic? State officials say there's no immediate impact. The Roman Catholic Church and Orthodox Jewish groups brought this legal challenge and state officials have already rolled back the so called red and orange zones that covered their churches and synagogues. So the rule limiting attendance to his fewest 10 people, even in big religious spaces. It wasn't actually being enforced. But the ruling could limit new restrictions here in the future at the number of cases really surges again in New York, and this also sends a message. You know two other governors around the country how the Supreme Court will look it at any of their restrictions. What's the reaction been today from the religious groups that brought this case? Yeah, they've declared victory. They say this is an important win for religious freedom. They point out that New York was still allowing so called essential businesses to operate in Corona virus hot spots without the same level of restriction. And this win for religious leaders is reversal from the Supreme Court's posture just last summer that gave governors ah lot more leeway fighting this pandemic. I spoke about this with Douglas Laycock at the University of Virginia, he's legal expert on religious liberty. Governor's orders in New York, where some of the mystery Cockney and in the country the first case where Amy Cody Barrett really makes a difference is compared to respect her Ginsberg and it slipped the result and they're not going to be different from the governor's anymore. They're really going toe examine closely for signs of discrimination. And Laycock points out, Ari that governors can still restrict religious gatherings. They just can't restrict them in ways that are different from rules for businesses or government buildings. And now New York governor Andrew Cuomo was named personally in the lawsuit. How did he respond to the ruling? He described this as a political statement being made by this more conservative bloc that now defines this court. But in his daily coronavirus briefing today, Cuomo did also acknowledge the complicated tension here. Look, I'm a former altar boy Catholic Catholic grammar school Catholic high school Jesuit, said college, so I fully respect religion. And if there's a time in life when we need it at the time is now. But we want to make sure we keep people safe at the same time, and and that's the balance we're trying to hit, especially through this holiday season. And I should add, are that this isn't really new. Here. We've seen deadly Corona virus outbreaks in New York around religious communities following ceremonies, funerals and weddings, for example, right from the start of this pandemic, and religious leaders have clashed repeatedly with caramel, also with New York City's mayor. Over how far elected officials can or should go to limit new infections. Now, you mentioned that this reflects the new makeup of the Supreme Court, and there was some tense language in the opinions tell us about what the justices said. Conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote a concurrence of green with this decision that was pretty biting. He wrote that, according to Governor Cuomo, and I'm reading here, quote it may be unsafe to go to church. But it's always fine to pick up another bottle of wine shop for a new bike or spend the afternoon exploring your distal points and meridians. That's Reference thereto acupuncture clinics that remain open in New York. Meanwhile, in her dissent, Liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor pointed out that in the past, the Supreme Court has given public officials broad leeway in cases involving religion where public safety is a concern, she pointed The fact that the Supreme Court upheld President Trump's ban on immigration from certain Muslim countries. So justice Sotomayor suggesting that this ruling reflects a double standard. NPR's Brian Man, Thanks a lot. Thank you worry. It's a tough call to make telling your family you won't be

Relativistic over the Washington The 72 year old archbishop of Washington, has been widely praised for his handling of the sex abuse crisis that has rocked the Catholic Church. As head of the U.

"roman catholic church" Discussed on The Bluestocking Baptists
"God living on a on a planet living on the planet co Lob and I think he's one of those doctrines that you've been some room Catholics when push to Netflix like yeah I mean it's not really that important but it it's it's definitely not many biblical right right and we'll I'll explain a little bit that I think a little bit more in detail and in a little it just kind of regarding really lit what bonds a Roman Catholic to believe what they have to believe in just just a little bit more that I found this the questions regarding Mary to be really really interesting so I did. We did a little bit of research into this and and really what we found was that scripture does described Mary as of April Servant of God. Even you know the angel of your endured saying that you you it that she would choose less like that that is not note but scripture does not say anything about the latter years of Mary's life. There's no description of her appearance of her virtue on there's actually some instances in scripture where the family of Jesus is lumped together and the family of Jesus goes and calls him a madman. We don't you know we can't really speculate as to say whether or not married was included in that but we do know that it is very possible and since Maria's human she had the original sin and she was not definitely not perfect and definitely not with her being a married to Joseph and we see evidence of Jesus having half siblings brothers and sisters on that she was not a perpetual virgin as the the Catholic Church holds too. It's called Old Immaculate Conception. I found a passage from the it's written in Latin. It's translated immaculate conception. I guess it's verse two sixty and this is what they would believe we declare her pronounce and define that the doctrine which holds that the most blessed Virgin Mary in the first instance of her conception by a single alert grace and a privilege granted by Almighty God in view of Merit Jesus Christ. The Savior of the human race was preserved free from all stain original sin is doctrine revealed by God and therefore to be believed firmly and constantly consistently by all the faithful all it also goes on and says that she's absolutely free the stain of sin all fair perfect she remained free free from every personal sin in her life or her whole life long Her Holy Incense and same sanctity are so excellent that one cannot even imagine anything greater and which outside of God not mind can't succeed in comprehending fully so that just shows like the the definite extra biblical aberration for Mary that I I've seen I've seen people like in response to that say if Mary if drew Mary were to have knowledge of this she would say you do not worshiping this is just it's it's very especially whenever you get into Latin American countries or visit Italy. It's very its idolatry This one thing you reminded me of is something thing that were my good. Roman Catholic friends you know look missionary when he mentioned to me one time which this is very interesting which by the way y'all can cut this out if into literally just thought about it so I might not be able to articulate it okay Jack but what what he told me and is something that I think is going around. Roma Catholic Church they really clean onto is the the resemblance of mother Mary and the Tabernacle of God okay and they'll make a you know it's it's it's known as typology right and so Mary against as a type of the tabernacle or vice versa and so even the holy objects replaced within the Tabernacle they take in. They relate to marry Okay Jack but I've read about them right but here's what's unique about this is when the Tabernacle was no longer needed what happened to the Tabernacle. It was destroyed. It was useless and is no longer no longer needed never again and so taking that in looking into that right. There is like what you explain. There is great significance in Mary and her role yeah yeah right but after her role was finished there is no longer need for her in likewise you know the Roman Catholic Church gets it wrong where they think that yes there is a continuation. There is a need for her to have a continued role and God's Church so I don't know that Kabila's interesting. I'll just reminded about that okay so according to James McCarthy from the Gospel according to her own and I'm just this is a really great resource and he's very knowledgeable about the INS and outs of Roman Roman Catholicism. He says that it began with the adoration of Mary it began in eighteen thirty with the with what became the first of a series of alleged appearances of Mary in various parts of the world most notably Europe supposedly Mary very appeared in France Portugal Belgium and Ireland the the Roman Catholic Church then officially recognized all of those appearance appearances as authentic revelation and after that I it was it was during I guess those visitations to the to the John Pope John Paul the second again that is when he claims that Mary promoted adoration to herself which is not does not even sound like the Mary that we see in scripture much less I mean we were warned in scripture of you know even if an angel or an apostle apostle were to come to you and you press you a gospel contrary she came supposedly to these Catholics in the in the early early eighteen hundreds in the late nineteen hundreds and said start paying penance supposedly and we know where that got the Roman in Catholic Church so our next question is what is the significance of the rosary significance of the resume well so from my understanding simply misery is a tool used for prayer and devotion to mother Mary and what the Rosary consist of is a well. It's you know if you're not familiar with with with the object looks like it's essentially a necklace Nicholas with across with cross hanging from the bottom and our beds that are associated associated with with the necklace and each beat is correlated to a Pacific prayer and these prayers are the apostles creed our Father Hail Mary and the Glory be the prayer that said the most regarding guarding the resume is that Hell Mary and the resume is yes. more it is designed for that radiation of Mary and seeking her in that intercession for the believer so that that's that's more or less the rosary simply put. Do you have anything extra on. I was just reading. Some more of the origin of Rosarito is one of those appearances princes of. Mary and Mary said Oak presented a reserve start using this is that kind of gets into like the the mysticism and the symbolism and the Roman Catholic Church we you know you pass by Catholic Church in a beautiful name you'd have architecture and in Gaza windows with the different scenes. I'm it's and you can correct me if I'm wrong but sometimes I've seen some on some rosaries they'll be a painted on like little images absorb on gets back to the symbolism there so next question is what is the doctrine of Katori purgatory so this is a very interesting topic in fact. Did it's probably the least discussed topic that I've had when when it comes to Roman Catholics purgatory also one of those questions I had growing up that I you know ask my my dad and then I think the best way to tackle it against is to go to the Roman Catholic catechism and I'll read two sections from their the first one being ten thirty says all who die in God's grace and friendship but still imperfectly purified are indeed assured of very turtles attornal salvation but after death they undergo purification so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of Heaven chason thirty two says teaching is also based on the practice of prayer for the dead already mentioned in sacred scripture therefore Jesus made atonement for the dead that they might be delivered from Blair said one of the passages passages that they point to or at least the the passage that inspired he yeah right in in in what they were were they directed me to in Scripture was first Corinthians three twelve fifteen and all Ribeiro click says now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold silver precious stones Hey struggle each one's work will become manifest for the day. We'll disclose it because it will be revealed. It'll backfire and the fire will test what sort of work each one was done. If the word than anyone has built on the foundations survives it will receive a reward award. If anyone's work is burned up it will suffer laws. No he himself will be saved but only through fire guy. I don't see I don't exactly all about ask you that without. Be Your first thought now that people when they die they're not in the righteous ending for God's so therefore they get into an alternative reality to purge away. There said no absolutely not in fact a nowhere in scripture. Can you find something so specific such as purgatory again. It's philosophy base is philosophy based. is is purgatory. Is it today. I guess canonized doctrine like is it something like if you're Catholic at a something like you. You need to affirm to be a good Roman Catholic right so yeah right so I'll I'll. I'll talk about this more specifically in a minute minute but but but the difference between doctrine Inagua so you know dogma is declared body church something you have to believe okay in. Yes yes purgatory is dog. It's not doctrine and we'll be broken. Winston exempt won't get an example of doctrine that would be like so there's a really good example in our current age again and so when it comes to Dogma and Doctrine so doctrine is something that by the church the Church affirms but you as a Roman Catholic do not have to affirm okay but a dogma you do if you're Catholic. You have to believe it so an example there are currently four Marian Dogmas thus meaning that there are four believes about Mary that you have to believe. Dave okay the fifth one is a doctrine yeah. It's optional and in fact it's it's kind of becoming a dramatic topic within the Church because there are people pressuring the pope to dog is that's a correct way to use the term the fifth baron doctrine. When is that one okay so the Ford Dogmas that they already have that's affirmed other Churches Mother of God Scher Perpetual Virginity so much immaculate conception big big issues there her and then little assumption into Heaven Guy the the the fifth doctrine that they want to Dante's is essentially the Damer mediator in advocate is the fifth fifth doctrine that they're waiting mm for the current pro or whichever pope to Documenta's yeah the assumption into heaven that is where they believe that. They don't believe that her body was corrupted right. It's that she was like taken up resurrected yet and well. I don't know she died. Yeah resurrected forgot her by did not see corruption. it was literally that would be one that with the optional over the run or kidding okay awesome next one as purgatory marry next question. What is the role of the pope at this one's a combined question of What is the role of the pope do most modern. Roman Catholics agree with the pope are with the leadership of Pope Francis and is the the Roman Catholic church heading towards liberalism big question questions it is it is but I like them all. I like them a lot so as always let's start with a star with the catechism. Canada fine. We're talking about terms of the Roman. The Catholic Church says section eighty two says the Pope or the Bishop of Rome and Peter Successor is perpetual invisibles source and foundation of the unity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful for the Roman Paneth by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ is in as pastor of the entire church has full supreme and universal power over the whole church power which he can always exercise on hindered guy one thing I would like to say employees out especially coming from the catechism is the term. I'm here vicar of Christ. Vicar stands for substitute in is literally translated as the substitute the toot of Christ can make right in yeah and to be more specific they believed that the pope is is the stand in for Jesus currently here on Earth right now right so regarding.

We also have a passion for helping women with the tools they need to exercise discernment and we desire fire. You see more women understand and love the deep theology that is found in God's word welcome to part two of our two part series on Roman Catholicism on this episode we will continue our interview with Mike. Hoi An ex Roman Catholic who is answering your questions about Roman Catholicism in part one we heard Mike's testimony and the answers to your questions concerning the grounds of justification atonement communion Christ tradition John and scripture this part two episode will be more of the ends and out questions questions concerning Mary Saints Purgatory and the Pope keep in mind much of the topics that we we will be discussing Tim to bleed together so we may get on a topic on the topic of poke today we might reference reference back to our discussion last episode about the traditions and scripture in the Roman Catholic faith so Mike. It's good to have you back on the show yeah. It's good to be back. I really appreciate the opportunity so first couple of questions Kinda group together we have why do Roman Catholic six pray to Mary and other saints. What scripture would they point to to support this. At this form of adoration. Does the Bible refute the Marian Dan devotion or devotion to other saints what about your thoughts on Marion Dissertations Mary as a redeemer which your thoughts and all of that yeah well so I have a lot of thoughts on all that especially when it comes to marry in the saints. This is a It's an interesting topic. It didn't really show until the church until later that being said you know regarding my experience talking Roman Catholics regarding Mary and the saints in especially prayer and the way that they would communicate communicate to them. It doesn't come up very often and we really don't spend too much time on the topic however it is a very very important tortonto aspect to their to their religion and so not I think of as important frosted pop about it so I wanNA start out reading like I in the last episode just Kinda two sections from their catechism pertaining to marry so section nine sixty agrees says since Virgin Mary's role in in the mystery of Christ in the spirit has been treated it is spending not to consider her replace in the history of the church the Virgin. Mary is acknowledged honored as being really the mother of God in other Redeemer. She is clearly the mother of the members of Christ since she has by her charity Jilin and bringing about the birth of believers in the church who are members of its head. Mary Mother Christ mother of the Church US First Section. The Second Section is Twenty six seventy nine which says Mary is the perfect prayer a figure of the church when we pray to her we are adhering with her to the plan of the father who sends us the same allman like the beloved disciple we welcome. Jesus's mother into our homes for she has been killing the mother of all living. We can pray with and to to her. The prayer of the church is sustained by the prayer of Mary in United with it and hope again so so. I hope that section twenty seventy nine John Answers the question. Why do they pray to Mary but but regarding the scripture points that went or sorry scripture at point students that Roman Catholics like us. I'M GONNA give to to passages to scriptures and the first one being Luke one versus twenty six thirty eight when they will Gabriel appears to marry. That's a very significant verse they use in John Nineteen Twenty six twenty seven was I'll readable quick says when Jesus saw his mother and the disciples whom he loves standing ending nearby he said to his mother woman behold your son then he said to the disciple behold your mother and from that hour the disciple took her into his home home. Okay so interesting about this and what's interesting interesting about scripture is that we don't necessarily see any kind of adaptation towards or for Mary in the scripture passages. which will we mainly see when it comes to scripture passages is essentially a more or less the significance of Mary? Which of course we ask Ask Protestants would also affirm in hold out the significance of Mary in her Rolf and the father's plan of salvation right in carrying out you know Mary being the bearer of Jesus right you know and so on subs so of course there's a significance there that we would also agree with breath however when it comes to the Marian Dogmas and doctrines within the Roman Catholic Church most list of this comes from philosophy in Canada and really a lot of what we're gonNA talk about regarding this episode a a lot of it does come from philosophy Allenton again that the the Marian Dogmas and doctrines didn't come until really around six hundred a d so so we see the development of these doctrines in these dogmas later emerges history so that's more or less the take on on praying to marry encounter the Roman Catholics in against of that got. Let's go to saints or quick talk about them. Real quick so section twenty six eighty three regarding saints aints says the witnesses who have preceded hunts into the kingdom especially those in the church recognizes US saints staring the living tradition of prayer by the example of their lives transmission of their writings and a prayer of the prayer today they contemplate God praise Emmy let me constantly care for those whom they have left honors when they entered into the joy of their master. They were put in charge of many things. There's action is their most Exalted Service to God's plan we can and should ask them to intercede for us and for the whole world get in so that sums up saints really well my opinion this section of the catechism and really the focal oh point for me when try and understand the saints as the last part of that this this section when it says session is their most exalted service to God's Plan Glenn we can and should ask them to intercede for us and for the whole world so when rubbed me. Catholic praised the saints. That's essentially what they're doing. They're they're praying for the intercession of the saints in order to essentially bless them okay Bergh's growing up when my family and I would go well when we travel on vacation travel to family wherever wherever we were regarding traveling we'd always say prayer to Saint Christopher because in crisper was the patron saint of travel and it wasn't the very sophisticated breyer it was just an our father and then we would just simply say a prayer of asking Saint Christopher to bless us on on our travels. What's interesting about that. Is We never ask Jesus to bless us on our travels so you know that's that's kind of the unfortunate side to saints. I guess in praying to saints Jesus sometimes gets the back burner when it comes to prayer and asking for intercession to essentially what they're doing is by train to by frank to a saint. They're they're asking the saint to pray for you right and all sorts of Mary married but you know as a as a mediator the air rise Kreis absolutely in here's another example that I'll give you know I I are you know in the first episode. Kinda gave my testimony testimony and when one of the examples I gave was out run into my parents room and ask. Why do we to Mary and you know well he. His answer was well. When your mom tells you to do something or ask you to do something what do you do you listen to her and right and so when we yeah right it is and so the assumption and beyond argument as well when we pray to Mary Mary than being in communication with Jesus would then have diseases uses intercede on our behalf so it's it's an interesting concept. That's that's a very broad way to put put it. I guess not very specific indeed but more or less that is what is taking place and you know this actually came to mind so so I'll give one more example in this is more. I guess tethered towards how can we you know how can we how can we challenge Catholic when when we have these discussions and and this comes from my own personal experience in me challenging my own beliefs turn around the Catholic I thought okay so I have a younger brother and let's take for example when we were younger and I was out mowing the lawn which was my role for months my childhood and you know if I were to have broken the lawn mower and Allah's afraid of how my dad my father would respond to that and I had my a little brother goes until my dad for me that that there's an issue there. There's you know there's a lack of trust right. There's a sense of cowardness our nece almost and really dad must other would want me the person who broke the law more to come directly to him into and to apologize to confess what happened right and so why quals when it comes to praying to saints to Mary and Uneven I'll mention when it comes to confession to a priest right it almost seems as if we're taking this this you know for lack of a better word Howard way of confessing to the father directly or to Jesus directly when we sent him so let's just example Ecuador. Were they call that happening in between have somebody to cushion the blow right. If you were to mess something up you had you. You don't tell the person who you mess up there. Stop you tell the neighbor neighbor goes and so did this and they try to fix it and and she just not as authentic in real while while we're on the topic of saints. I just wanted to read something from the Gospel according to Rome it. It has a little little summary Section about saints I don't think we have a question related to this that since we're on topic of Saints The the fact that the Roman Catholic Church coach what is it they would it be called Saint someone when they declare someone saint they become canonize as has as this the ex Catholic who wrote this book says that the Bible on the other hand refers to all true believers as saints by virtue of their position in Christ. They're sanctified in Christ Jesus Saints by calling as for the Roman Catholic practice that loosening or up to living invoking the spirits of dead it has more in common with spiritualism indignation both condemned in scripture then then with any other Christian practice. It's he references. Deuteronomy eighteen prescriptions chapter one and fusion after one anti think that's a good thing to point out since topic of of saints they're absolutely I'm really glad she said that the distinction between the terms yet because we as Protestants would say US saints right whereas today you're not a saint until till you've passed and Yup canonized is right by the charge the matter stadium because you're works outweighed your sin essentially essentially yeah yeah. It's very interesting and you know you can use scripture. Scripture is almost explicit on the definition of saint when the word saint is used and we can push that on Roman Catholic positioning so let's see I wanted to point out and is that scripture doesn't necessarily refute view adoration to Mary or the saints however it obviously doesn't support it either right and here's the reality of the situation right. Scripture shouldn't have to refute the adoration of Saints in Mary because like I said earlier. This is merely. They still esophageal. This is something that they they they take and they formulate outside of scripture something that really cannot be supported voted by scripture unless you really look into certain verses and passages and twist them into a zone yeah. It's like in the in the Mormon Church how they speculate. It's it's really just Mormon philosophy.

"So to me the Roman Catholic really has to be honest with themselves evaluate you know does the Majesty actually have more authority than scripture and tradition and I would argue that yes it does it does it absolutely has more forty therefore scripture and tradition Asian or not as authoritative so that that's that's about. I got for the highest rule of authority good way to explain that okay so a military drinking night because I can hear it on my end goods Now you're fine okay so the next question that we have. Mike is what is the Rock on which Christ says he would build his church and I know this is is one of the cornerstone new logical doctrines and the Roman Catholic Church but we will explain that a little bit no Pun uh-huh and in okay. Yes absolutely that's man. That's a really good question. it's a very deep sophisticated question all of these things right right right right but I mean I have a about a ten page document single-spaced response to the you know the office office of the pope a guy and this is a large part of it it's it's pretty complicated but so. I I believe that the individual is referring referring to who has questioned is referring to Matthew Chapter Sixteen Thirteen versus thirteen through twenty and we can read that and then we'll discuss about that so it says now. Jesus came into the district. Does this rift alibi. He asked his disciples. What do people say that this on a man is and they said some say John the Baptist others say Elijah and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets is said to them. But who do you say that I am Simon. Peter replied you are the Christ the son of the Living God and Jesus answered him blessed US Bar Jonah for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you the my father who is in heaven and I tell you you're Peter and on this rock old Bill Church and the gates of hellish amount prevail against it. I'll give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you bind honor shall be bound in heaven whatever you loose on Earth and heaven then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was a Kreis okay so it's just difficult for anyone I know it really is yeah absolutely and so when you when you talk to Roman Catholic in their interpretation of this passage what's interesting is versus thirteen through sixteen subject of these verses Jesus and then the very last of verse verse twenty the subject also Jesus but between us seventeen through nineteen subject matter changes to Peter for us. We believe that thirteen injure sixteen the subject matters Jesus Seventeen hundred nineteen the subject matter is also Jesus and that burst twenty is such a matter is is in fact Jesus okay so my point saying that is that there's inconsistency first off the Roman Catholic Church right when they interpret this verse and that had really you know there is like that these passages are these verses in the middle are explicitly referring referring to Jesus and not Peter Gal that makes it so so one thing that Roman Catholics will bring up when discussing this passage is I the name change okay they say will because he changed his name right. This is the establishment of the first Pope Peter and that Peter's Iraq which Jesus will built this church Agai so we don't deny the fact of the name changes you know is the you know. We don't deny that it is significant because it is and what's what we believe is taking place here. Is that yes the rock here that credibility church is Christ himself MHM but but Jesus essentially affirming Peter to being the first shepherd of that church or the first pastor the the elder of that church in this makes sense when we when we read Verse Nineteen and Jesus says I will give you the keys to the kingdom you can you can push against Roman Catholic and say okay okay first off what are the keys and second. Where does where does. Peter received these keys because Jesus Awesome. I will give you these kids but nowhere in scripture do we see where Peter's actually given these keys but for us our interpretation of keys would be the word of God the Scriptures again so as Peter being the first shepherd of the First Church established by Christ founded on Christ Peter's given the authority with scripture to preach the word of God and those are the keys to kingdom right. You hear the word of God and you believe you're say you're going to have so that's essentially what you know really what the interpretation I think the correct way to interpret this passage is now what is oftentimes also discussed when when talking Roman Catholics is the significance of rock here okay and Burr's eighteen. He says I tell you you shall Your Peter and on this rock Alabama Church Roman Catholics will tell you that this rock that referred to as Peter Because Peter Means Rock but the reality is that all scripture right yeah that absolutely but also just taking a simple look at the Greek translation in this passage reveals the alternative alternative to the Roman Catholic positioning on this okay so we believe that Iraq is Jesus. Christ and here are four screen from passages that refer for digits as as a rock actually sorry. I'm going to give you five K. The first one is Matthew Twenty one forty two Romans nine thirty three Isaiah eight fourteen and twenty eight sixteen okay and then I print the ten four which we will read and I bore says in all drank the same spiritual drink for they drank from the spiritual rock that followed them Iraq was Christ but to take it one step step further what is very significant and important understand here is that within the Greek in this verse Eighteen Peter is translated translated as Petros K which is masculine and then the rock. Here's translated as Petra which is feminine now. If you go back to the verse I I just read I Corinthians ten four says alright it again and all drank the same spiritual drink for they drank from the spiritual rock that followed them in that rock doc was Christ priced in this and that rock right which crisis described as is a feminine version Petra game so I left a believe and multiple people are left to believe that this rock immersed eighteen is in reference to Jesus Not Peter Mhm so I hope that made sense and I hope that answers the question. WHAT IS THE ROCK ON WHICH CHRIST says he'll Bill Church and then I just WanNa bring a little bit of clarification for the last part of the verse when he tells Peter That you'll be able to bind on earth that I I don't know oh necessarily what the what your guys opinions are but I'm led to believe that's in reference to church discipline. Would you agree with that. the point uh and even just the authority of the word itself. You know if you don't have any word that even establishes what is yeah it's not it's not like coming up copeland trying to bind road hurricane ranked okay so this question is a little bit unloaded so let me read all of it. I thought it was a really good question so we had one lady she asked her. She said that many Roman Catholic says she knows I'm say that they do not believe that they are saved by faith and faith plus works. She said that she knows that there's the historic. Roman Catholic Catechism Zain Council say otherwise so our average Roman Catholics unaware of this official doctrine are they taught to hide it. Is this directly taught to Roman me Catholic congregations while that is that is a good question a loaded question you know yeah. I I you know in fact within the past couple of years. I've I've been hearing the same thing guy I was talking to a guy who is actually converting -verting to online Catholicism AAH. We were talking about faith and works and he's like dude. I believe in faith alone and I was just I mean I was shocked to hear for that and I was like what are you talking how do you how do you believe that and our our reached out to the local missionary in and he's like. Yeah Man Yeah Yeah faithful on and and so that that those surprising to me and what I think that is honestly to tell you the truth I think I think it's kind of the church trying going to be able to relate to US better. I really do think that's what's taking place in their evangelical efforts to reach Protestants. I think that they're trying to relate us. Better okay so let's talk about really what faith and what more specifically what works are and what how we can define. I'm worked within the Roman Catholic Church and so really essentially the what the works are when we say faith plus this works in regards Roman Catholicism are the seven sacraments and essentially what happens is when in the Roman Catholic participates in these sacraments they're receiving what is known as Salvation Grace and this is extra ordinary. Mary Grace that brings on essentially righteousness individual can and so here just a kind of a few points it's from the catechism that we can use to kind of more or less proof to Roman Catholics that yes there catechism does as a firm and actually demand good works in good merits for the Individual Section eleven twenty nine says the Church Church of firms that for believers the sacraments of the new covenant are necessary for salvation. sacramental grace is a grace of the Holy Spirit given by had crossed improper to each sacrament the spirit heels and transforms those who received him by conforming then to the son of God. The fruit fruit of the Sacramento life is that the spirit of adoption makes the makes the faithful partners in the divine nature by uniting them in a loving in union with the only son the Savior Nineteen ninety-three says justification establishes cooperation between God's grace and man's Freedom Nineteen ninety-seven grace is participation in the life of God twenty twenty five the last one. I'll Mitchum we can have merit in in God's sight only because of God's free plant associated man with the work of His grace merit is to be ascribed in the first place to the grace of God and secondly commands collaboration. Man's merit is due to God quick quick question that first one that you're at the end when it says union is it in reference to the Sacramento Brings Union to Christ. I believe so I believe so that fascinating no listen I could be wrong I could but it makes sense to me that yes it is union with us on the savior because you know the Eucharist communion is one of the seven sacraments believe leave that by consuming the Eucharist that they are growing close essentially uniting with Christ as they participate in that sacrament so I I would be led to believe yes but I could be wrong they they also believe in the sense that without it you because because I think it's also important to note that Roman Catholics are semi Klay Jan Correct Border Lining Palladian Mike correct in saying in so they're they're sociology is going to be different than like so s would be Calvin Est.. I'm assuming Mike Era Calvinism 'cause you go to church because you.

"If we take the reality what Jesus is saying thing that if you believe in me of eternal life we can use the entirety of scripture to defend that positioning right but I just think it's important for us. We know that oftentimes Roman Catholics will flip to this immediately especially when they try to use scripture with us and just kind of really understanding manning was taking place you know I like to really emphasize. If you you know so imprisons a verse or passage to you is so important I'm to read before and after was taking place in what they're what they're presenting to you because way too often people take as it is in verses out of context text and and in this case they oftentimes do so anyway. That's a little bit about community and the differences there just one quick question the best way to summarize that would be that the Chris is more of a will 'cause. There's multiple different views N. Christianity of what in the Lord's supper is but it would be the UK's would be the belief that they're actually feeding on the physical body of Jesus Christ correct. Let's absolutely right. They they think that they think the priests is given the divine ability to turn the wafer and wine and to actual flesh and blood so that's why it's important to understand that John Six is not saying in which the doctrine would be trans is at Transportation Association that when you say that it's the context is faith in Jesus Christ what he's referring to because he is the bread of life when family gives them internal life. Yes thank you for pointing that out clarifying that yeah they they do hundred percent believe that it's the body and blood and so that is why why they used as passage so often because when you don't understand the reality of what Jesus teaching it is there's almost sound like he's literally saying flesh and drink my blood third different. yeah didn't have they third difference would be baptism. Baptism awesome is essentially an hour expression of emerged faith. for the Roman Catholic. I pulled of their catechism section twelve thirteen which says only baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life the gateway to life in the spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Let's through baptism we are freed from sin and reborn sons of God we become members of Christ are incorporated into the Church and made shares in her mission and that doesn't is a sacrament of generation through water and the word okay so one thing to really understand Dan here baptism essentially for the Roman Catholic wipes away the sin of original Sin Guy and what original sentence essentially really the sin of Adam that they believe stained all of humanity guy and in order to remove that Sen from individual individual they must become ties which is why they baptize all infants to give them a clean slate. That's right that's right and and and you know we don't really have time to discuss this they do baptize pretty much on the eighth day which is quite similar to circumcision uh-huh and they will say that the to correlate quite a bit but anyway studying. Colossians and other passages were led to believe that others quite a difference. There is a big difference. Let me break in Hanoi could you because I know that a lot of our listeners are some of them could be. Maybe leaning. Were Presbyterian briefly explained that like other different yeah. Could you explain that yeah so I want to know that Roman Roman Catholicism Baptism is the belief in like Mike saying I don't. I don't know as much about Roman Catholicism so I won't do it as much justice but I can't explain how patriotism is different from a like. A confessional reformed stands but essentially Roman Catholicism is is there is regeneration happening essentially so you are justified by baptism in a way that that if you were to die after your baptism you would not go to hell is that is that correct. Mike Okay so so then for baptism because I can explain that more clearly. Pedro Baptists do not believe that baptism brings them into Union Dan with Christ and they do not believe that a child is regenerated at it's at the child's baptism paper. Baptists believe that that at baptism it is a means of grace the way that they view it so something is happening but not in the sense of saving or wiping away original sin Presbyterian tyrians or reformed confessional believers believe that baptism is bringing the child into covenant with Christ so they would also believe that got it is mirroring circumcision and that the child is now a covenant child so brought into brought into the visible church because there's an invisible and visible distinction in the church from a reformed perspective so the child is not saved at baptism. The child is not having their original sin wiped away way at Baptism. Baptism is bringing them into the visible church with the rest of God's Church. 'cause they view it has a mirroring of circumscription and just like everyone who was circumcised in Israel was of Israel and Israel not everyone in Israel was spiritually Israel so a child will have to grow up and they're they are not allowed to take communion until they have come to faith in so when a child is regenerated a Presbyterian Aaron or form believer will affirm that that that person was not regenerated at baptism that the subjective grace of the Holy Spirit of God has saved them at his choosing according to his good pleasure when he so desires in so not every child is elected not every child will be saved but it's according to God's God so choosing God bringing that person to faith and then at that point that's when the baptism the benefits of baptism from reformed confessional professional perspective are are given to the child so they they have the benefits the Westminster Confession will read to regeneration and several different things you you could read it but it's it's not saying that generations given at baptism it saying that now these things these things are true to the person now because they were saved by faith because now they are a believer. I'm just going off memory right now so I hope I'm doing it. Justice compared to give that as an explanation the nation good. I just WanNa make sure that we show that. There's a big difference. Between Roman Catholic baptism and reformed historic patio patio baptism yes and then federal vision is not Presbyterian. Ism just to throw that in there but that's a different topic Abbott different anyway yeah all right. That's your okay so the I just kinda passage out like the bring got regarding baptism would be I peter three twenty one it what's interesting about this passage or this verse really is that both sides can claim that it defends their own inside so I'll read it. You know it says baptism was co-responsibility responsiveness which Peter is talking about. Nila now saves you not as a removal of dirt from the body but it has an appeal to God for good conscious okay so really the the Roman Catholic will sit here and say Okay Yeah See Peter. Literally says Baptism was corresponds to this aisle saves you and what I I would say is okay if that were true then would it make more sense that Peter would put a period right after the right that he would stop that would be as one and only point point. He doesn't right he says batches which corresponds to this now saves you not as removal of dirt from the by as an appeal to God for good conscience in the not ah removal dirt is significant their body right in other words like this act of baptism doesn't remove the stain of anything from you but rather this this act of baptism is an appeal to God right for good conscience and that's I like to use his passage to kind of defend or positioning sometimes Roman Catholics due to but I think it's just a matter of really understanding kind of what's what Peter's talking about in in really the whole the whole passage so I just kinda continuing on baptism there three of coins. I'd like to make that kind of defend this idea or the reality that that doesn't it doesn't save that kind of like we talked about earlier. The only thing that does save is is our faith right Romans ten nine hundred ten. That's the first first one right it's confession in its believing in our heart that is enough for us right and then thief on the cross the thief on the Cross is an absolutely beautiful notable example but it looks like to be saved when someone can be a thief right their whole entire lights and then on the point of which you know they are crucified the worst form of punishment and hearing Jesus pray for those who are crucifying him. He then believes in Jesus and Jesus says you'll be with me forever in Eternal Paradise it is that confession of faith it is that faith he hasn't Jesus in the moment that carries them into salvation. and I mean like I said it's just one of the most beautiful examples of what it looks like to be safe now. I'll just mentioned this I had a Roman Catholic like tell me well. How do you not know he wasn't baptize before it was crucified. no. I mean I heard that before far right and and it really it really just kind of blows while when I hear that it it Kinda just really values the the reality example and really what's taking place here but anyway that is something that I have been presented before like saying that John like saying that John the Baptist baptized the thief because he was was the thief Jewish or was he a Roman citizen. I don't know I don't know it doesn't say right now. I know it you know when you have to add things description to make it with your theology. It's a problem yeah Johnson. What's the problem so yeah. It's not something that I give a lot of time to went on. Discussing things with mcadoo is just it's a bit of an excuse excuse me and then the third point would be a John. Three fifteen and this is a in this passage. John is referencing being a numbers twenty two twenty two when the Israelites were in the wilderness and they're being disobedient the Lord sense serpents upon them and commands ends Moses to make a bronze serpent put it on a staff and raise it up and any of Israelites look upon that and believe would be saved from the serpent's grants and John uses us to directly illustrate three sixteen will we're all familiar with that if we look upon Jesus Christ in the sacrifice that he made for us and we believe in Him we will be saved from arson guy so those are just kind of free points that I really wanted to make when it comes to baptism and the fact that Baptism Gives Zero Salvation Grace Guy. There are graces involve a nothing that pertains to the righteousness of the one thing. That's that's interesting that you can kind of question presents. A Roman Catholic talking about baptism is just raising the question what if someone believes the dies before getting that does okay and I've actually come across two answers regarding this and some I'm will tell you that if they don't get back dozen legacy to hell and some will say that yeah they baptize or they they're saved without getting baptize because of their face and when they say that then that's the perfect opportunity push you know faith alone the Gospel Yeah right exactly exactly in that they're not being consistent with their own catechism to light show them. Hey what about what about your catechism here. We got a minute long night. 'cause we got lots of questions all right so our second question chant is what is the highest rule of authority of faith and practice in the Roman Catholic Church. It's a good question so the way I guess I'll present this would be that there are essentially three pillars within the Roman Catholic Church and those three would be tradition scripture and the magisterial get these things are very ah very deep right so again like I said earlier in its which don't really have the time to really dig into it but we will talk a little bit more about some of them on the second episode but essentially tradition the Roman Catholic is everything that the church is practiced since its founding in my opinion around around three thousand five hundred and one thing I would just point out is that we also kind of hold fast ask to tradition as well. The only difference is that our tradition is found in scripture right so what we find in scripture especially especially in acts is the same thing that we do now two thousand years ago right and that to me is tradition absolutely tradition but for for the Roman Catholic there are traditions that had been adopted established by the Church that have taken place over time for example of Marian Dogmas and doctrines those weren't those didn't really come about until six hundred a d and so there are just these traditions that can be brought into the charge established by the church and then just multiple different things that I guess can really be considered tradition that the church equates dates right authority with authority with a scripture in the magister him scripture they affirmed that scripture is another a pillar of authority within the church and in the Magister Magister is is essentially the clergy of of the Roman Catholic Church and just to keep it simple that would be the pope bishops and the priests can what's interesting interesting about this I kinda liked to raise as a question to Roman Catholics on talk about them is the fact that the Roman Catholic really has to be honest with the fact that the magisterial has really I mean essentially has more authority than tradition and scripture simply because is the magistrate has the power to define what other them mean in relation to the Roman Catholic. I hope that makes sense but it within the church the rat the majesty room is what defines scripture and it is what defines tradition or example the pope in the magisterial them with he has the authority to declare what is Dogma what is doctrine was allowed in the church and what's not allowed in the church.

We're going to break up his interview probably into two parts the I part is going to where we're gonNA hear. Mike's Testimony in answer. He's GonNa try to answer your questions. Concerning grounds of justification atonement communion Christ raced and tradition and scripture her to be more of the ends and outs questions questions concerning Mary Saints Purgatory the Pope keep in mind that much of the topics that we're going to be discussing into bleed together so we might get onto the topic of Christ. The redeemer might mention that in ruined Alice's. There's there's an idea that Mary is a coup redeemer but we won't get into specific Marian questions until parts you so Mike to we started off. We'd love for you to share Share with us a little bit of your testimony of got saved you on hold you out of room all schism yeah absolutely I I just WanNa say I really appreciate the opportunity to just kind of talk about my testimony and just have an opportunity to answer questions concerning the Roman Catholic faith. That's pretty you know pretty important to me and a big deal in my life to start. I was I was born and raised in a Roman Catholic family. family was pretty devout in their faith more so my dad's side of the family my mom converted worded to Roman Catholicism when they married but regarding my dad's side of the family yeah they very very devout and you know that being the a case me and my siblings were also pretty about in fact my grandma's probably one of the most developed Roman Catholic I know and one of my uncles in fact Dr Dr He is a missionary priest so Yeah I've got a lot of history where with a Roman Catholic faith and and on resonant pretty pretty devout family grown-up. I kind of always had a lot of convictions about what we believe. I had a lot of questions concerning what we believed specifically you know. I remember I would you know had come back from school not run into my parents bedroom and asked my dad. Hey you know why do we pray great to marry and Jimmy his responses and I'll just kind of you know that would that would suffice and move on our I remember Moore asking my dad you know hate to we believe in purgatory. you know people talked about it at school. I didn't know much about it but I wanted to ask him. Hey do we believe in this and and so that's a pretty important aspect to my story because when I came to college I I had well you know college in South Alabama Nevada well so we you know a lot of people were Baptist and mainly Baptist from friends and so they would they would invite me to church and asked me questions and give my defense all reasonings for what we believe as Roman Catholic and you know they wouldn't stop ask them to go to church and eventually also point where I'll just say yes just to get him to stop asking me. I just go right right right and so I finally went and I remember that going to church I would have a lot of convictions kind of resurface and and a lot of my questions get answered but they would they'd be answered through the Scriptures and really at the time. I didn't really know what the Bible was really I never really read the Bible. I couldn't tell you where any of the gospels were really any book in the Bible. so a lot of the answer or these questions. I had an an answer to a preaching up preaching the word of God and then Kinda fascinating some time I had a friend and they long story. Short Alice Tana searching more or less and we were studying the Bible together and and all presented Romans ten nine through ten and already real quick on that says if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised from the dead you'll be safe for the heart believes is justified with the mouth on confesses and safe and I remember after reading that I broke down I just started crying and at that moment I really really started to investigate my face and thus began in a three year long journey of me with the Bible and the Catholic doctrine and the Catholic catechism to really figure out what what I believed and on you know the summer of two thousand sixteen or celebrating communion and the pastor was up and he's praying beforehand and I remember just having an extremely overwhelming sensation and a strong desire to truly repent in all of the Lord and I believe in the moment was saved we I remember my my roommate at the time was with me and he said you know man like something happened. You could have been saved. I feel like you're already say but we'll see what your life looks like. After this and sure enough at that moment my life was completely different and I've spent a Lotta time you know talking with Roman Catholics and I I wouldn't necessarily say having debates or anything but having some pretty deep sophisticated conversations about the the differences between Roman Catholicism and a protestantism so anyway that's kind of my story in a nutshell. So how long have you been a believer okay so I'm I've been saved since two thousand sixteen summer as well but I mean I've I would say that I've followed Jesus really from hostile my life. I'll just sir I I didn't. I wasn't gifted the Holy Spirit until two thousand sixteen so all right so we're just going to jump right into some questions about the difference between Roman Catholicism and The Christian Gospel which is found in the Bible so Mike. Can you tell us what the core differences are between. Romanticism and Protestant ism absolutely absolutely there. There's three points. I'd I'd like to make real quick just regarding the things that I'll be saying in answering these questions and the first is just that revolve is It's extremely deep so you know really were more or less be scratching the surface on these things but it is enough to become educated and to have a discussion and a conversation station with a Roman Catholic and really my belief is that the Roman Catholic church is founded and around three twenty five on the roll the of a constant in the Roman Empire so having the case there's seventeen hundred years of theology so there's a lot to unpack the second point is that just kind of regarding these things you know. I wanted to make an effort to pull a lot of topics out of the Roman Catholic catechism. Just kind of make sure that you know I back out the things that I say and yeah I think it's just important for those who do have conversations with Roman Catholics to really know what what their beliefs are what their doctrines and dogmas aren't they state and then one thing that we interesting Ed your listeners may notice is that a lot of our believes are are in a lot of ways pretty similar pretty close of the differences that those differences are szriously big important and they make a huge difference so that's just something interesting. I wanted to point out now. Regarding the differences between Roman Catholicism and Protestant `ISMs of the I corps difference I would say would be the Gospel Faith Long versus the Gospel Faith Works and I believe that we'll talk a little bit more about what faith and works Kinda means in regards to Roman Catholicism but that is certainly one of the bigger differences differences between the two in my that is so we believe that an individual is saved by faith and that faith alone but that that faith isn't derived by the individual himself but rather given by God right whereas the Roman Catholic they will absolutely one hundred percent of firmness the necessity of faith but it within the Roman Catholic theology and Belief System Works Works are essentially tied in with that faith in that you have to have good works with the faith in order to essentially have justification the vacation and salvation an in like I said we'll we'll dig into that a little bit more a little bit. I believe so but that's the first that's the first difference I would say. The second difference which is absolutely huge would be a communion this if you've ever talked with a Roman Catholic is typically going to be the biggest thing in the hardest thing for Roman Catholic to ever give a our guest to kind of move away from and so for us that's right Jim. Union is is essentially memorial actively practicing anytime during the year you know throughout scripture we see different memorial acts used or God just Kinda come ending his people to create memorials to remember the things that he has done for them right. Joshua's perfect example this the Cross River and God commands each tribes gather stone into make memorial with its own that to us is what is the significance of communion what we believe leave this thousands for for the Roman Catholic this is I'm GonNa read from the catechism that section thirteen sixty seven and it states the sacrifice of Christ in the sacrifice of the Eucharist which to Roman Catholic eucharistic communion resin. are one single sacrifice sacrifice. The victim is one and the same the same now offers through the ministry a priest who then offered himself on the cross only the manner of offering his different in this divine sacrifice which celebrated in the mass the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altar of the cross is contained and his offered an in an unbloodied manner. This cycle vices truly proprietary so that's a lot that's a big that's that's a big paragraph paragraphs there but that essentially encompasses with Roman Catholics believed that has you know a their former comedian the one thing. I'll just like a mentioned it if if anyone's really interested in listening to a really good presentation on the Eucharist for Roman Catholics a James White does an incredible credible presentation at the G. three conference in two thousand seventeen on the U Grist you can find it on you pretty easily but it I mean it's very hey very very good very good. very educated people so regarding comedian and the differences between Roman explosives in protestantism one point. I really wanted to make an emphasize is if you're talking to Roman Catholic and you're using scripture you know as a means a conversation almost always they will refer to John Six okay and so I just kind of want to for usually is pretty quickly as I can kind of run through John. Six what that looks like and what to watch out for in really what the passage is trying to tell us okay It's not going to read it but John. Six verses twenty two through fifty nine. Essentially you can go further if you want to but really a fifty nine is Kinda the passage that is red or really what's going on in John Six and so wrong a red but essentially what's taken place is after Jesus feeds five thousand guy and Jesus crosses the Z. and then his quote unquote disciples ride those who are there and part of the feeding of the five thousand they follow him across the sea and what happens benzes as the next day there and Jesus essentially calls him out for seeking him only for his miracles is feeding him. He's feeling them. He's doing these amazing. mazing miracles and Jesus knows the hearts of these individuals and that they're only following him because of the miracles is reforming not to truly we know him and to believe in him a guy next you know these are. Jews ride that that are following him that are these quote unquote disciples right and essentially the Israelites ate the Mana that parishes Jesus brings us up right and and Jesus simply says that son of Man will give you a turtle food and he is of course talking about himself right and then he a an and then you know upon Hans Making the statement from Jesus Right. They ask okay well. How can we receive this. This eternal and Jesus says that you know if you believe in me you'll never hunger you'll never thirst again and then what takes places it will it goes further in Jesus is actually or the Jews. Bring the fact well you know. How can there be attornal food. If our forefathers had eight the mana the manor that came down from heaven yet still died. So how can you offer us this eternal food and Jesus says again you know if you believe in me and you'll no longer hunger you'll never thirst and they're not they're not grasping what Jesus is trying to say here okay and then they begin to get in that that's pretty significant they start pushing back. Jesus Jesus and and there again they're just not they're not making sense of what Jesus is trying to say game and then so that kind of takes place in the first part of this passage and then towards the very end of this passage. Jesus eventually says if you do not eat my flesh during my blood so you will not have eternal life okay that is exactly where the Roman Catholics will take you and they will sit on the very end of this passage in oftentimes they will disregard the whole entire beginning part of this passage on that's right exactly and they'll they'll miss the point that Jesus is trying to make and.

"Roman Catholic Church it wasn't until the eighties that you started to see her role as being with the poor and imprisoned her book ends with her letter to pope Francis which she personally delivered to him in which she shares her concern about the wound she believes and fax every aspect of church life the way the church treats women sister Helen pressure on welcome back to fresh air you had not planned to be a social activist nine you hadn't planned on being an anti death penalty activists what did you imagine being a nun would be like when you join the congregation of sisters of Saint Joseph at age eighteen well it was what the holy rule said in what convent life was like before Vatican two he joined the religious life to see of the spiritual life of perfection of union with god love of neighbor which was semi cloistered you deliver eight that's lay people were you taught at the school it was a daily regimen of prayers a lot of vocal prayers the rosary let needs that precious in the day were two half hour periods of silence where you could have meditation and so it was under this strip thing of canon law fall religious women which it come out nineteen forty nine strict thing of the way that you got to holiness was by obedience to superiors so no questioning if it's called blind obedience and by being obedient that was how you got holy you gave up self will and in the process as I experienced it he also began to give up a lot of thinking critical thinking because you knew what you had to do was conform in the end to whatever was being asked of you and that is what I entered into the I wanted to be a mistake so did you feel that blind obedience and a lack of critical thinking we're leading you closer to the mystical state that you wanted to be in that you imagine being a nun would lead you closer to I just wanna tell ya tried hard I really did what I began to experience this existential inside myself was I was giving up critical thinking it was whatever mother says it's got to be what it is and then you just follow the rule mother superior not your mother yep no mother spirits right in religious life you call superiors mother and I began to find that it was kind of a quietism it was kind of well I'm praying that I wasn't intellectually stirred and I began to find it very confining luckily I wasn't in it that long like just five years before Vatican two happened in the church and opened up doors of enquiring exploration and relating to the world so you're talking about how nuns are treating a compare notes to please thank you write that in the spiritual manuals of the day before Vatican two that topping the list of womanly virtues was a beauty and submission and resignation so that's what you are supposed to practice what about people who like men who were becoming priests was there an emphasis for them on obedience submission and resignation they had to give obedience to a bishop but they were much more free wheeling and they did make a vow of poverty so they had money if their family had money they can have cars are gonna have a boat they can have a condominium it was just like they were much more free wheeling and they would make decisions and act out of them but their life was not in community the way ours was the sisters have found and often very lonely and I mean I even heard that in some rectories yet your individual salt and pepper shaker by a place and loneliness is not good for people I don't think you can make it in the Christian life out of the you can make it in human life without a community of people to share with so that was the downside for them they were also trained in the early days like I talk about my pastor Paul Raymond war when I was the director of religious said the parish in New Orleans he never have looked into my eyes he had been trained never to look into the eyes of a woman and also learned that the way priest would shake hands with the woman is they take your hand and then they would like bend yeah Hey end with the wrist out with so you couldn't come in close less god for bid they got a bus only hug let's talk about what you had to wear before Vatican two what was it like wearing the habit how did it feel did you feel like it was separating you from the world or just giving you a kind of uniform that told the world who you were and that got respect well in a Catholic context and you got to know that during this time the religious women religious orders were the ones that made the Catholic institutions run the whole educational system and hospital so when a Catholic context we used to the half that they saw it as a as a as a I'm sick of respect and and traditional Catholics found it very hard when we took the habit off but the habit because he can't get this terror it was three and a half yards of black wool search wrapped around your body everything covered did not only had long flowing sleeves but they had what was called under sleeves you not only had a long black flowing veil but you had a under Vale and you had what was called a car net around your neck and three other pieces of cloth on your head so that you were let's just say you were covered in fact one of our sisters one time she was in as a material store cloth and she was standing there and she felt somebody pulling on a veil and she turned around to this surprise lady who thought she was the both the material in a way she will you gotta know she's not a bold to mature with all that black that's all you song and New Orleans is hot and humid he won it I mean we had a funny says the sister burn guard and she got on the bus one day one of the ladies on the bus and on this July and the lady said all look at those sisters there was look as crisp and fresh is daisies and leans over and whispers to the system next to a kid what is at Roland down while a heck sweat you in a puddle it was really really hot but you know what it's interesting I yet daft and things so you expected to be hot you moved into that and so in the summer you were hot has the burqa ever seemed similar to you yep so that have it uhhuh you know what I think is that Terry I when I'm in an airport and I see people in Berks circle we were like that we will covered head to toe to wear the veil over our heads I think of it a lot mmhm and what what does that say to you both about burgers and about habits well if they're very very similar and they come out of a religious tradition and the way women to be modest were covered also see that can be great respect him wearing the burqa because if it's coming from the inner religious motifs of devotion people can dress any kind of weather one let me reintroduce you here if you're just joining us my guest a sister Helen Prejean and she's written a new spiritual memoir that's called river of fire we'll talk more after we take a short break this is fresh AIR this is fresh air and if you're just joining us I guess your sister Helen praise on she's written a new spiritual memoir called river of fire and she's best known for her work with people on death row who work opposing the death penalty she was dramatized in the film dead man walking in which she was portrayed by Susan Sarandon you enter the convent when you were in your late teens this is just a few years before Vatican two which initiated really groundbreaking reforms in the Catholic Church and you write that the new insights a Vatican to help you get your selfhood back after your futile attempts to relinquish it because part of what you were taught as in the Vichy it was too as we were talking about the the the obedient the submissive and and kind of turn off your critical thinking which is it is in a way I a denial of of the actionable self but also you point out the book you are too young to really know yourself meaning you didn't really fully know what your self was so what was it like to be able to assert yourself and remain a nun after Vatican two and what were some of the ways you were able early on to assert yourself that you in ways that you couldn't before I just want to say you said when I was a novice ship it's not the novitiate is the place I am novice nervous yes right thank you a lot of people do that right okay so waking up to self well first of all you would have to have permission during the days of blind obedience mother would have to prove any book you read so you're doing this reading and of course we are free to read and we're free to talk to each other before we were always in a time of silence she didn't talk to each other except that recreation so we meet Mimi's little huddles did you look at this book did you read this book can be sharing the books with each other it was just a wonderful time of freedom so first of all what you reading intellectually how you challenge the other thing is that you could be a self by having the freedom to write letters and receive mail without mother reading your mail I mean when I look back on that it could have been more restrictive you're right let me put it on mother's desk and she would check it she would read it my sister Marian's really funny should write to me she knew mother nor me are now this mistress was reading the mail so should be telling me news and then to say hi mother nor me so you hope you have a good day so anyway you can just see for intellectual freedom and then the other thing was being able to choose our growing into what your service would be what your ministry bring me in as opposed to being assigned at absolutely been assigned I mean it buys signed it I mean we all going to chapel we all clad oh god help me I'm about to be assigned I don't know where and then you'd hear silence in the chapel and the soft pad of shoes and then by your peers who would be a sister who would hand you a little white slip of paper dear sister lowers aghast and that was my name and religion that it is the will of god for you to go to San Francisco brainy to teach in middle school hello some of us sisters who wanted to be nurses they would get the little slip of paper you are signed in teaching or if you wanted to teach anywhere nurse it was just moving pieces around on a chess board because blind obedience was supposed to cover everything so Vatican two is a turning point in many ways and one very profound turning point is that it basically said the church can change absolutely is on have to remain the same for ever and you know it points just to reading the signs of the times Hey and do you feel like the church is still open to that is still open to change yes so when you use those words the church you're not talking about a monolithic body and you're not mainly talking about the hierarchy that church is Vatican two said is the people so you have people's experience doubling up all over the place so you have people going to the border right now to be with the asylum seekers and then the one separate from their children that speaking and then what happens is as people awaken and as your heart is move as we moved by compassion by the suffering then we moved to action and.

"What's on your mind? Yes, love your show, but I had a question about the, the concept of becoming a sovereign. Or maybe the maybe the correct term is becoming a sovereign. Susan, I'm wondering is that a legal way that you can unplug from not only the tax system. But, but other things I don't know. I mean, his I know I was wondering if you guys had to take on that I think that there are lots of takes on it, and you can find people with different takes on it on the internet. And I think that there's as many takes on sovereign citizenry as there are people who purport it, I would say, I love the idea of a person, being sovereign, and I would say that the term sovereign citizen is actually an oxymoron, because a citizen is a person who chain exchanges, an obligation for protection from the government for duty of allegiance from the, the, the citizen. And if you're not getting the. Protection guaranteed to you. You're not a citizen. So I would say first off, there are no citizens in the United States. And if you think you're anad, two states citizen, you're just wrong. You're in fact, a subject of the city state of Washington DC. I could make a much better case for that. That person can make a case that there is a US citizen. They can say all it told me I was US citizen. So I must be well, they told me I was one two, and then I read the definition of what a citizen was in Black's law, dictionary. And I saw that the supreme court does not guarantee you a right of protection from any law enforcement agency. So poof, you're not a citizen, but as far as sovereignty goes, there's really only three sovereign entities in the world. I'm gonna go ahead and say, there's the United States Russia and China and that the rest of the countries the world or basically vassal states there. So for instance. Great Britain is a vassal state of the United States. Or maybe it's the other way around. But it certainly looks like as I stated it, and actually, I think I think the city state of London, because London is its own has its own laws and the Queen needs to get permission to go to London. I've heard all of that, but I don't know. I think our commies being run by the gnomes in London. And so the US military is the muscle. The Roman Catholic church is the kind of controls the hearts and minds of the poor and the and the city state of Monday in controls all the banking. I think there's an argument for what you say. I think there's, there's also counters to it. They're certainly other banking capitals that are sort of at odds with London and New York is certainly a financial center..

And it was such a big deal at that time that even her because she had the same name. She got her haircut like her. It was was like what is this? And I never really wanted to watch the dramas of the paranormal I wanted to go and get it myself in reality. Well, guess what? Here is the reality. 'cause Robbie does that Robbie Thomas is the female medium? I know you're going to hear that a lot Robbie. But it's true. He's a psychic, medium, spiritual counselor.

I'm I'm in with the blue line on on the front lines going on death scene and in op topsy photos in actually speaking to suspects with them implanted implanted as a individual to get more information from suspects in their homes. Yeah. So what you see on TV and the fairytale side of things. I'm actually the reality of it. Yeah. And I think it was you the told me somebody told me that that the actual show and sorry to bring that back up again. But I think you said she really only did one a case or. Yeah. There was something. You know, I've heard myself that you know, there's been one maybe a couple, and they based this show on that part of her work. You know, God bless her for what she's done, and what what whatever she helped out in in the blue line and for families. But you know, just looking and I don't follow other people who work with psychic saw just don't have the time.

How did you even get into this because you know, even learning remote viewing along the way in my life where these remote viewers do what you're talking about doing. It takes a special person because you actually see the crime and feel the crime. Yeah. You know, take you back to my childhood you natural for me. And in saying this h three you have a young boy running around the house saying in my adopted or do we have a sister out there? And I know that used to irk my mother because it hurt her in the early sixties if you had a child at a wedlock, the Roman Catholic church would come along and take the child in adopting a child out. And oh, my mother met a gentleman he promised her the world, and it never came to fruition. She ended up having a baby girl, and then she met my father years later and then tie in that timeframe that baby girl was given up for adoption. She meets my father years later, Mary's him. She has me and then again country years. Fold up and here. I am running around saying I feel that we have a sister are adopted oh up to nineteen ninety four the day of my mother who when she passed the family took me aside and into the park with my my my sister. My sister. All those years. You were right. And her name's Mary. And so FOX did a special about being reunification of her. And I and and she was a spitting image of my mother was amazing. So you know, that that far back of knowing, you know, saying what I said, and then, you know, doing that special a FOX, and what have you it was just a natural thing that that was with me, and then withdrew to be a police officer not once but twice the first time. I was a young lad all of age seventeen you had to be twenty years of age to be an exhilarating. And during that time course, I passed all physical the psychological have you signed the chair with the chief of police, and he was giggly and taking three exhilaration that day. He looked over at the other two congratulated dam and told me to come back, and it was fired those hired and fired the first day. You know, that's a story in itself. But then come years later, I became a police I'll hired on in a little town outside of Toronto Canada. And when I came back home after all that we can testing again, I heard a lady screaming she saying accident accident. So I jumped over the fence in my backyard near she was she was in her robe. She pointing down the lane way, and I started to run and I'm thinking there's cars lied to something and the road curves from these townhomes curves out to the street. I get out that way. And there's no cars, and there's a gentleman to my left is going over here and wavy over I run over to the screen door. The opening I come into the kitchen. There's a lady to my left running around the table screaming. There's another gentleman to my right holding a door. And he says career I run over to him. He then opens the door looks at me grass. My shoulder. And I'm still now I'm looking at the floor for blood some thinking accident accident. He pushes me in this little room shuts the door the room was a tree by six. It was just a small bathroom. There was a gentleman in their eyes wide open. And he had passed first things that take over our, you know, the checking the vitals, see if there's anything I can try to do CPR. So I started all I heard was let me go. So I stopped. No, I'm in recovery mode. Trying to save somebody's life not thinking. Okay. I can hear people I've done this. My my whole entire life and seen what have you? I'm looking at a gentleman, and in the course of action is to provide this man and bring him back. So I began to do CPR record. Let me go I stopped. I knew I realized he's talking to me and he's dead. So then I walked out the corners. Back at a massive coronary. There's no way I would have been able to save you a tear in his heart. But at that moment, I knew I just knew that I was headed down a different path. I'm twenty one at the time, and I decided to call the precinct where I was hired on. And I said, I quit, and you just don't quit they want to know why. So then they send down a captain sergeant and a film crew from a different force in Chatham, Ontario. They make this working tool if you will it's got EMT's firefighters police officers who quit under duress. Why wasn't stressed? I just knew I knew my my direction in.

The butter claimed the bread knock it down and put her noose around its neck and Joe please neck punch, Jack anytime, he says, let's unpack that oh, it would be my delight. I'm saying and ironically, right? I roll my eyes, and we circle back to you saying unpack that absolutely. What was the newest one? Let's let's put a peg in that. Yeah. That's a good one opin opinion. That's what. Yeah. Let's put a pin and pin them we'll get back to it later. So if you haven't said that in a meeting yet throw that be the first to throw that in my God, you'll be regional manager before, you know, there are a number of important things to talk about what I'd really like to talk about right now is how the show is thrown into a tailspin a technical logistical tailspin. Because one of the most important journalists of the last twenty-five years said bullets in an interview, and we had to dive for buttons and make sure it didn't harm your virgin ears. And it just threw off all sorts of stuff. And I just I think that's so funny. Let's just do is it it is. I mean, you having to deal with it isn't funny. The FCC is going to have you and get MO. Allowing that to happen. Did have one listener apparently heard it somehow listening online. Internet. It's it's open waters. Are you? All right. My friend, are you? All right. I had to pull over them literally shaking after the BS bomb. Well, there are plenty of people wanna fire us for various reasons. So let's not give him one more excuse moving along. So the the pope has opened the big Catholic church conference on sexual abuse it opened untold with a video. Of victims talking about what happened to them. What it meant to them? And. Criticizing the church in rather strong ways for their lack of interest in doing anything about it. Yeah. That was the opening of the conference which seems to me a really really good step. Then the pope love them hate him or different told the hundred and ninety leaders of the Roman Catholic church. We hear the cry of the little ones asking for Justice. The holy people of God looked to us and expect from us, not simple and obvious condemnations, but concrete and effective measures and been thinking that for quite some time many years several popes if you strike exactly the right notes. All you've done is struck. Exactly the right notes. You haven't done anything yet on the other hand. That strikes me is some really good notes. I think it's really interesting that it was. You. I don't know. I'm on the north side of thirty five these days, so time is passing more quickly. But it seems like it was only about six months ago that we got a long and detailed Email from a longtime friend of the Armstrong and Getty show. Who is a very a long time lay leader in the Catholic church in the metro area in which he lives, and is very very plugged into the church, generous donor, a a devout Catholic and said, look the problem is there are so many gay priests and bishops and cardinals et cetera who are sexually active. They can be silenced. Even if they are outraged by sex with underage people. And or you have the in my Louis, you novelist talked about this and got murdered for it. The thing among some gay. Adults. Of being an listen don't don't jump on me. I if you're a person of good conscience, you know, what I'm trying to say don't worry about the specific words of being a mentor toward as teenage gay kid who's coming to terms with being gay and reaching down into that age bracket and saying, look, it's okay. You're not alone. You're not the only one near you know, you're you're gay look, blah, blah, blah. And sometimes they end up getting together. And that's happening a lot and some the church so it's like man teenage gay love, but then they can easily easily easily be silenced. When they become aware that there's a child rapist. No, maybe you think a priest getting with a seventeen year old teenage boy is child rape. Okay. I think it's somewhat different not that it's acceptable, which is somewhat different. But anyway, there's this conspiracy silence based on that. So that was six months ago. We heard that for the first time, I don't know about you. Jack. I I was like, oh, oh, and it made sense to me. And I followed this issue for a very long time. Now, it seems to be really coming out in the open is out today. That says his number is eighty percent of the priests are gay most people think that's high. But he thinks that's definitely the number of the power structure there right around the pope. And so my question is will that come out during this conference? If it doesn't interesting phrase that is. That is to me the lie detector test of this conference does that just become out. And so a lot of journalists who hate the Catholic church. Also are very sympathetic toward gay people are worried about this becoming a gay people or pedophile thing, which has been an old anti gay trope for ever, right? That. That's you know, there's those are different things. There's there's no evidence to show that there's a conflation of those two things. So, but the so they're they're less likely to want to call out the, hey, look, you've got this culture of secrecy around being gay which allowed the people that are pedophile to also get away with a secret sex. Right. And he just you got to figure this out somehow. Well, and I'm telling you the whole gay mentor thing, right? And a lot of those people that were mentor young by grown men when they get to be grown men. Thank you. That was very helpful to me. Yeah. Yeah. That was a little are you being sarcastic there or what? No. Well, that that's what they say. It's Milo said, right? Yeah. That was that was okay. With me. I needed that at that point in my life. Right. And we're not about eleven year olds. No, no. I don't want my son with some grown, man. I don't care what his intentions are. Right. But so so you man, it's complicated. But if they're not going to be honest about that, it's difficult to take anything that happens a seriously, right?

"International line is open should anybody. Be. They get about calling us internationally east of the Rockies Joe is in Long Island on coast to coast AM for open lines and the topic at hand. One of the things is that the bombs that we are now available are the equivalent of about one hundred bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima Nagasawa again Tom's of force power. So that's something to think about but going to Nagasaki in particular. I had read the bells of Nagasaki, I thought that was a great book on us for -vivor who was. Basically, a professor at a teaching college Medical College, and he survived because he just happened to be in concrete it heavily concrete at X Ray room happened, and I came out, and he looked at his students, and they were just sitting in their seats like burning up, and then the book went from that and describe what he saw and I think about six seven years, but eventually did die of radiation poisoning. But one aspect of this too was a disproportionate amount of girls that God and and ground zero. In fact, a target for the ground zero was a Roman Catholic church called Saint Mary's that had an attached girls school and a lot of the people on the outskirts. A lot of girls were disfigure by this. That's the and they actually came over here. Or for plastic surgery? Right extent that they could be, you know, they had, of course, difficulty attracting a mate, you know. And so on, you know, so it kind of ruin things that way. Well, there's a church in that you mentioned in Sacchi is a part of the museum there. And it's it's it's fastened to see how much of the church survived the blast. Again, Charlie was talking about the idea of the shock cocoon that existed over an area that would be directly underneath the bomb. When you would think that would be the area, I defected and a lot of that part of the of the churches intact and some of the controversy over his book. When it came out originally, and we talked about it on coast to coast when it was titled last train from Hiroshima that the that part of the controversy surrounded somebody from that exact church and the he hid interviewed. He'd made a composite of two interviews. He had done because both people had requested anonymity. And so in order to protect them. He had he had composite somebody, and he he had set it at one point. But he didn't put it somewhere else. And so he was accused of of hoax seeing everybody by making up this person. And that that person didn't really exist. I have since found that priest in question in the book, and and can confirm in fact, that priest wasn't contact with Charlie did give him information about what happened that day with that with that Catholic school Catholic account specifically, what did he observed for well part of it was about it was actually about. Part of what I won't go into many details here, but the part of it was about suicides. And and the idea of as you mentioned just how disparaged people felt after the after the event, and they were suffering. And so one of those was about a if I remember correctly. And I I don't have the book in front of me was about a priest who had committed suicide and yet was covered for that event by other priests who offered him a proper Catholic burial. Despite the fact that he had suicide and this was like, oh, no that didn't happen. It never happened. And I was able to confirm. It's been awhile since I wrote that chapter. So I'm sorry. I don't have it in front of me to be more specific. But it's very interesting and. Read an account of appraised and trust in and he claims that the initial onslaught the first place that was bombed was charged. Well, it's hard to. Well. Yeah. But let's be clear. It's hard to drop a bomb on a city and not hit a church, you know, churches on especially then. In Europe, not so much now. But then there were churches every, you know, three blocks four blocks, and when you're dropping bombs, especially like, those incendiary bombs dropped on Dresden. They weren't tactical. You know, they didn't they weren't smart bombs. They were just gonna land where they landed. So if it was, you know, it's pretty good. Pretty good bet would land on or near a church at that time. Pilot that dropped a bomb on Nagasaki said that he aims. So that charge. You said it was a very high. It was the most prominent building, and he's specifically aimed for that to trickle charge. It was the center really at the center of Nagasaki. If I remember correctly. So that I don't think it was an anti-catholic thing I or anti church thing, but they were looking for landmarks. And maybe that's just what stood out. I don't remember that part. But interesting Joe, let me go to j who's not far from you in Hampton, Connecticut on coast to coast AM J. Hey, happy presidents day weekend to you. How are you? It is president's day weekend. You're right. It's awesome. Good. Where do you wanna take us? Okay. Well, I hope that cost audience has got bags ready because we got some very serious things to talk about. Okay. I follow a lot of alternative media. I have for many years, but at the same time, I'm very careful what I listened to because I know there's a lot of fear mongering. There's a lot of fake news. So I'm very particular. And lately there's been a lot of things going on. That really just a coastal should really be aware of within the ring of fire seismic activity. It also at the Yellowstone super volcano just quickly touch base on all three. What you have to be quick because we got other people waiting, but go ahead. Okay. I the ring of fire on average. There's about twenty volcanic eruptions a year, why can tell you in twenty eight team. There were fifty and already this year. We're only in mid February. There have been fourteen volcanic eruptions within the agreed with fire. As far as seismic activity goes, it's been increasing most notably in Alaska. Alaska's had a couple of big quakes also had a total of three hundred and forty six tremors beginning of this year. And it's possible that you know, the big one could hit somewhere whether it be Alaska, the west coast or anything. And then finally, this is probably the most important one is the uplift at Yellowstone has been just going crazy for those who follow Yellowstone, they know there's different questions like Mary bay or skyser base in green and so forth. And it's not uncommon. It each section of the park there the uplift could maybe one area. Well, now, there's uplift in more than what you're usually like to areas, and that's just spending the last couple of weeks, and I've heard from various alternative media people that. Probably this one person for five or six years. Now, she was quoted as saying face. She would not be surprised if a hydrothermal explosion happened in the next week or two. We in the next week or two before the end of February possibly, okay? Well, hey, thank you for being so concise be you're welcome to call anytime. See I think all of those are fascinating topics, and I hope that they get the wider coverage that they deserve. I I had been reading about the ring of fire and the increase activity, whether only not only what that means for earth earthquakes volcanoes, but also for soon armies, and an unusual weather phenomenon that are already affecting places around the ring of fire. So thank you. J a very mindful of those. We should always be Michael is in Monroe Washington on a first time caller light on or do. We drop him. I'm so sorry Quebec. Michael west of the Rockies JOL is in bozeman on coast to coast, AM, Joel. Got a quick comment. I'm going you for about ninety miles from Yellowstone. There hasn't been one bleep a word about any kind of activity going on there. Good. Big trouble. No, I'm glad you told me that. So you haven't heard anything locally? But would it ordinarily get coverage if it were going on? Yes. Devon brought the topic up for years to I have. Anyway, I wanna I wanna call. Appreciate the submarine. Documentary on the history channel about that. It was a German submarine that had to. German officers excuse me, two Japanese officers on board, and they were delivering yellowcake. Material that was somewhere along the processing. Due to take to deliver to Japan. Right. The commander of the sub sound out that the war was after the bombs were dropped as the war was over. Wait be the war in Europe was over excuse me. He did was divert is he decided instead of going to Japan. Now that the war was over in Europe. He had a right deport smile. Fortunate. Lina wherever it wasn't. He went was yellowcake. The Germans never developed an atomic bomb. Well. Proximity. Fuze heck they said it treated to Nevada desert about Joe July twenty fifth or twenty or somewhere in there. They said an atomic explosion off in the Nevada desert. Yeah. I I hope I was clear enough in drawing the line there on thinking that I the uranium part. I'm good with the processed uranium, but not that the that the bombs had already been developed, which I that was the first I'd ever heard of that. But. And the thing is though they they didn't use they made the Germans on board carry material office because. Right. What yellowcake is they do use yellowcake in the bombs at right now. I don't think yellow catches right readily available. I don't know how to build Tommy bomb while it's in the process of refinement. So it was in quantities that whereas what they were still looking for in an in the Manhattan project. So. The reason we knew really well way before this evening. The Germans did not have the key had not developed an atomic bomb captured. German generals in that what they did when they captured important people. They put them in nice quarters, but they had the quotas bug from the top right autumn. And they gave him good wine, whiskey, or whatever and all that good food, and they had everything they had the conversation from the German generals that they had developed a bomb and they had. The Germans should never gotten far enough to build a bomb together, they had fluent German Americans that were either I guess serving them right or they were like acting as LA's electronic, right, right? The head that too. But I mean, they it was interesting because if I remember correctly, they they had they had all sorts of different ways where they were Lulling the Germans into thinking that nobody was understanding them when they spoke German and everybody was understanding the well, I don't know about that. Did get a lot of conversation, and they knew this German because it was a lot of fear that the Germans are well up an atomic bomb. We did we sent one off. When they sit that bomb off Truman was in Rotterdam damn talking to stalling the boy, you know trying to. What was going to happen after the war? And when they twin Truman stalling know that we had developed this really powerful bomb. He was so surprised that. Stolen wasn't even concerned. He didn't like no big deal. Spicier? It already told him about everything. Spies. That's all I have great show. Appreciate that jumped in and interesting to thank you for the balance on saying that you hadn't heard anything about Yellowstone. I'll still look into it though. Thomas in the Bronx on a wildcard line on coast to coast AM open lines, Tom. Yeah. I like to say that in the nineteen twenties. Mid nineteen twenty s.

"So it's the intention though, that I think we have a problem with as a society, that's one of the things about finished strong. It says there's no shame. There's no guilt in having an intention and articulating an intention to die an intention to cause death when as far as I'm concerned, I am not actually living. I'm existing. I want my loved ones to act on an attention. And I if I am still capable I will act on that intention if I see this threshold approaching quickly. You know, what I have done? I have spoken directly into a cell phone video taped to my grandson who is holding the cell phone talking about my wish to know from others as I begin if I begin to feel the effects to recognize the affects of dementia coming on I have told my grandson and by virtue of telling him telling my daughter, telling my son that I do not wish to survive the end stages of dementia. I think it's so important exactly as you say to think about. What happens down the line not just for today? But as time goes on well good for you, Diane, that's brilliant. And I hope everyone who watches your film does something similar. We're working right now on a tool compassionate choices called the dementia. Decoder that will help people anticipate what may be in store for them. Help people pinpoint the thresholds. They do not wish to cross and help make it very clear to others around them that. Yes, they want this information they want to know when that threshold is approaching and then want to be able to implement steps. So that progression doesn't continue and continue and continue beyond that threshold. It takes a clear. Side courageous determination, which I know you have it takes a loving family that is loving enough to be as clear eyed as determined and as determined as the one they love, and it takes some tools at take some thought and some articulation so that people are armed with the knowledge that they need and the tools of discernment when that threshold such to come into view, I want to ask you about a major sticking point when it comes to the issue of medical aid in dying and that is religious belief. I know that the Roman Catholic church has stepped in on many occasions to try to halt a state from an acting laws permitting, medical aid. N dying. How strong was that up? -sition in Oregon when you began pushing forward on that Bill, essentially all the organized opposition has come from the Roman Catholic church, and I would say not the people in the pews of the Roman Catholic church, but the doctrinal hierarchy of the gnome, Roman Catholic church. And I think one reason that medical aid in dying is so important to them is that it is the most obvious example that essentially cannot be denied, and it's any kind of intended death. That is contrary to the doctrine of the Roman Catholic church that doctrine just says it is never okay to intend your own death. Well, there are many ways to intend your own death. People can deactivate a. Pacemaker they can stop their intra cardiac defeat later, they can discontinue dialysis they can stop eating and drinking. They can refuse treatment that would be life saving treatment all with an intention to die. It is what's lacking? Because of that, strong doctrinal aversion is the willingness to be forthright about that intention to honor that intention and act on that intention or support someone who is acting on that intention. So as a result quite apart from all the opposition of the Roman Catholic church medically and dying. We also have a whole bio ethical system that essentially deters candid conversations with people who would want to make. Plan and implement a plan to intend their death at a certain point. We walk a high around it. We say, oh, we're not really intending. Your death was the discontinuation of your renal dialysis were just relieving the burden. We we know you for certain you're going to die with not the intention. It's it's hard for people. It's hard makes it harder for people to be discerning and clear eyed about charting their own end of life path when the have to walk around the issue and not before right about what actually happening flying late..

"Some dramatic cultural moments from the past sixty years, we've got the Beatles. Last public performance the birth of the overtly feminist publishing house Virago and the decidedly less feminist franchise. The carry on films, but we begin with a moment which was pivotal for the world's one point two billion Catholics in the middle of the last century in January nineteen Fifty-nine Pope, John the twenty third called a special counsel of the Roman Catholic church, which would modernize Catholicism the decisions taken by that council have had a profound effect perhaps most notably in Latin America, but the Roman Catholic church has significant followings in Europe Africa and Asia as well Rebecca cabbie has been speaking to Monsignor Johnston, Cousy who was a student priest in Rome at the time of what became known as Vatican to Rome where this week that opens the Vatican Council, the largest and perhaps. The most important of any of the conferences in the whole two thousand years of the history of the Roman Catholic church. Vatican two is probably the most important religious event of the twentieth century. It was absolutely revolutionary. No question about that Monsignor. John string Caskey was a student of theology in Brooklyn, New York when Pope John the twenty third made the somewhat surprising ounce -ment just a couple of months after he was elected. It had been nearly a century since the last ecumenical council why was here in the United States at that time, I was seminarian studying philosophy. And of course, it shook us all up because there is never an expectation that there would be a council, and that could medical council is a rare occurrence in the church the reason it's called Vatican is because of its location the first Vatican Council took place in eighteen seventy this call the Second Vatican Council because about when the pope called the council the world was in a period of rapid change the trauma of two world wars was still being felt and the political map of the world. Is changing as communist regimes flourished in eastern Europe, and the colonial powers of western Europe were crumbling Christianity. Happy one of their main exports could Catholicism survive the end of colonialism. Europe was still you might say recovering from the second World War, the holocaust, and ultimately also nuclear bombs countries in Africa, Asia, we're not becoming independent as the great empires fell apart within the churches. So it was a lot of new research in terms of the odds in terms of the bible, so this immense ferment both in the church in the world. And I think it was the genius of John the twenty third to say well, the best way to address all of this to bring all the bishops of the world together to respond to these challenges of a new world more than two thousand cardinals and bishops from all parts of the world arrive here in the first session of the second basket can council began in October nineteen sixty two by which time Johnston Caskey was in Rome, continuing his studies to become a priest is afforded him a front row view of the spectacular events to all people could find space to stand. Well, the opening day we rinsing Peter. Square, and we watch this procession of bishops into the Brazila of Saint Peter. The covenant impressive array every the world all the vicious will wearing white coats, and they're miters symbols of their office. So you're talking about twenty five hundred bishops. So is it rather lengthy procession? And then at the very end it came Pope, John the twenty third. That is the Holy Father still looking very. Strong and very bright. The crowds were chanting and singing was a very exciting day. So hundreds of bishops and cardinals from all over the world had descended on Rome. I think special arrangements had to be made to house them. All then they were observe isn't theologians from other denominations and faiths. They were also invited by the pope. The city must have been a buzz of activity. It was quite an experience..

"I and it'll be easier to get rid of and a great model for this is the. Official Catholic church in China, which is different than the Roman Catholic church. That is loyal to the pope in China one is officially allowed and the other one is illegal. But you can always claim to be in one. Right. We'll practice any other. Like, he's got to be loopholes or and the basement. Yeah. But if you're in the official is going to be watched closer than anybody else. I don't dunno seems like the Chinese have a lot of employees watching other people aren't they just mind their damn business. They can't in China that is their business. Exactly. That's one way to do things. They are the longest running superpower. So it's weird. We're all like human rights. You know? Nobody's doing a great job on that. They're not good at it at all. But we're really really picky about the group of people who have been running a country longer than anybody else. That's weird. Yeah. They suck at this thing that they're better than everybody. That's like I mean. Megan how you measure success like name was only till recently. We gave half a crap about human rights issues. Anyway, like, it's a really new thing that we're even tightening to care about and China has no history of democracy. That's a very we're in bizarre concept to them. They absorbed some capitalism. And they're just they're just utilizing it. They're they're official policy is. They want. They want a peaceful ascension back into being the main world power. So they're doing everything they can to make long running plans to be in charge. And they've got them the numbers, and he know they've got a falling. I phone sales and car sales dropped and individual businesses within China are having a softened market sales. But overall the country is still like going out middle class. Chinese people are still out buying expensive restaurants investing in like baby stuff. Oh, yeah. So the China's peaceful ascension is not inevitable, but it's probably inevitable that or a complete collapse. Yeah. But I mean are form of democracy has collapsed. Every other time it's used. Like, I said once again, they're better at this than me. Are why are we the new kids on the block with a crappy constitution acting like? Oh, yeah. We're so superior to them while we export our own jingoism. How dare they do the same? Yeah. I just it's the weirdest hypocritical stuff where we're actually wrong on everything other than we're more advanced on human rights issues. Now, a great example is some of the stuff they're doing. Is the same stuff? We were doing with native Americans on reservations one hundred years ago. Yeah. Yeah. Just governments are not nice entities. We're still doing it. Yeah. Not to the extent of prohibiting the speaking of their language of dictating exactly how their educational systems work, and we're seeing your your own sovereign nation. Now, here's how to run that. Yeah. Yes. Very american. Oh, gosh. Democracy. Yeah. Yeah. For a great example on that. We have US secretary of state Mike Pompeo who just made a trip to Egypt essentially for the launch of the Trump administration's Middle East policy. Yeah. He did. He did a religious thumping, basically. Yup. Pete basically gave a sermon at the American University in Cairo with lines. Like, I keep a bible open on my desk to remind me of God and his word and the truth. He keeps he just kept. He he's keeping the same bullet points from his Christian American speeches, and then he's taking them to other parts of the world and acting like a crazy person because on the world stage. It sounds even weirder. You're like my religion is good in pure?.
