Sorry Mike…I prefer to believe that it is just and necessary to shine our brights on those who approve of abortion and/or gay marriage and thereby admonish the sinner as we were advised to do.

This is especially true if you, as I am, are a sinner who with God’s help somebody flashed their brights at me saying” there is a hell” and that is where you well may go if you keep on living a sinful life. By listening to him I changed my spots admitted my sins and came back to the Church and God’s love.

The rationalism that accompanies the pro choice and gay marriage voices is killing many of our children and my prayer is that God will shine his light on you and yours. and save your brain, heart and soul.

In response to Don Costello

I certainly appreciate Jasper Don’s concern for my place in the afterlife…

While he and I seem to disagree about the time when life begins and thus his view on abortion as the killing of children, I cannot understand how he would view gay marriage as threatening the lives of children. I can understand – but disagree with – his objection to gay marriage but can’t fathom his thinking that it threatens children’s lives.

  1. Donald Costello

    That’s what old Jaspers like…a good argument. In 1853 when Manhattan was born and in 1954 when I finished 27 credits of Religion and Philosophy and in 1972 when you graduated, Manhattan and the Catholic Church preached, taught and theologized that Abortion and Gay Marriage and in fact Gay practice was wrong.

    All the sins we commit hurt the Mystical Body of Christ and that includes the young children therein.

    So we leave the mystic and come to the dinner table of one of my older family members who has a gay marriage couple at the dinner table; and so a young grandchild says “what do you mean they are married?”. Now you know how this rough and tumble old Jasper would answer that.

    And the old Homosexual couple who teach say to the young boy who feels guilty about masturbating “it’s a choice” .
    Or that old SOB advertising agency takes after Bob Dole and puts up a sexy lady to sell Viagra during the six PM news.

    I could go on to pederasty but you can pick up the thread.

    There are a significant number of laymen and women, addicted to various forms of illicit sex to the point where it is another problem area to add to the list most of us see but don’t want to confront.

    I thank God for Brother Alban of Mary, Brother Luke, Brother Benignus all of whom were part of a group of men who gave us good meat to chew on whose taste has lasted all these years and whose principles say to Manhattan Men , sinners all, of yesterday and today “Abortion and Same Sex Marriage and wrong “ but hate the sin and love the sinner.
