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.

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.

JEMAIL: Toner, Mike (MC1972) agrees about “live and let live”

2016-Jul-05

Dear F. John,

For once (out of a few times), I am very much in agreement with your endnote – live and let live. I may not agree with your position – but you are free to advocate for it – as am I for mine. And I don’t think you should force your position on me as I should not impose my position on you…  Gay marriage – advocate as you wish – but if you don’t approve – don’t enter into one. Likewise don’t infringe on my ability to enter into one… Similarly, you don’t approve of abortion – don’t have one. But don’t interfere with my decision to have one…

[JR: Yay! Yes, us little L libertarians just want you to be as free as we want to be. Unfortunately, Gooferment makes that impossible. It’s used by power-mad politicians and bureaucrats to “enforce” diktats that get everyone minding everyone else’s business. Argh! ]

COMMENT: Toner, Mike (MC1972) disagrees about about Chick-Fil-A

2016-May-30

I am writing regarding your end note about Chick-Fil-A. No one is suggesting that the owners of CFA can’t hold their religious beliefs. What is being said is that when they bring their beliefs into the public square and associate them with their business – then those who disagree can feel free to not patronize this business which has been self-identified with less than tolerant beliefs. And there is nothing un-Christain about other people to take the same action regarding this business. This is not about their private beliefs – they are bridging sectarian views into the marketplace. This whole idea that there is some “war” on Christianity, because people are trying to get businesses not to discriminate against LGBTQ brothers and sisters, is just absurd.

Thanks, as always, for your efforts as CIC.

[JR: Well, they aren’t free when the Mayor of New York declares, as Mayor, a boycott of them because of their quiet demonstration of faith (i.e., closed on Sundays). And threatens them. Public Officials have to hold their tongues because of their public office. Part of the First Amendment is the right of association imho. That’s OK for everyone but Christians. The Christian bakers are punished. Would you make a Jewish baker make a Nazi cake. Or a devout Muslim to make BLTs. There are no “groups”; just individuals. If they chose to bring their ideas to the marketplace, then leave them to the marketplace. Everyone discriminates at their own peril. Sometimes “discrimination” is good and proper. When the Gooferment gets involved, it makes everything worse with its “one size fits all solutions”. But thanks for the good words.]

COMMENT: Toner, Mike (MC1972) disagrees with the endnote

2016-Mar-28

I totally disagree with your endnote. I believe there is evidence of global warming. I’m not sure how trying to implement policies that may keep the homes of fellow humans from being inundated by rising ocean levels is attacking Holy Mother Church…

But that is not my main reason for writing. You were saying that it would be a labor savings for you if the Yahoo groups method of distribution were discontinued. I get JJ in the form of an e-mail from Yahoo Groups – so I assume that I am one of the offending parties. Can you (again if you’ve done it before) please offer a simple set of instructions on how to subscribe via the most efficient method for you.

Thanks very much – and for keeping JJ going. And, Happy Easter!

[JR: (1) Treating “the Earth” as a “goddess” — Gaia — is a form of neo-paganism. Hence, a competitive attack on Holy Mother Church. (2) And, “implement policies” always equates to transferring more power to the Gooferment to take away and implement more godless Communist / Socialist / Fascist / Marxist proposals. (3) Pope Francis and the “social justice” crowd seem to fall right into that trap.]

Happy Easter, or whatever, you celebrate!
