AGREED!!!!! I was so much more productive during Lent.

I am not the only one yessss

Anonymous asked: do you watch porn?

exfidefiducia:

Absolutely not. 
If you want to know why, or if you do, look here (both religious and non-religious resources):

RELIGIOUS

Porn is an industry that seriously harms both its “employees” (often forced into it against their will) and its customers. Plus, it is strictly against everything in the Catholic religion.
Why would I support it?

(Just as an FYI, I’m not trying to be holier-than-thou. I used to struggle with sexual stuff like this - never actually watched porn but was very very tempted by it, had a masturbation problem, etc. But after struggling mightily with it and praying to St. Maria Goretti, ironically my patron saint, one day the temptations just stopped, clearly by no power of my own. I would never ever go back. If God grants such a grace, why tempt Him?)

Do you want to become saints? Here is the secret: confession is the lock; confidence in your confessor is the key. This is how you open heaven’s gates.

The Left Isn’t Pro-Gay — It’s Pro-Power

atimeforchoosing:

The left does not care about gay marriage. In most left-wing regimes, homosexuality was persecuted. It was illegal in the USSR. Gay men were locked up in Cuba and are still targeted in China. Nicolas Maduro, the current hero of the left, openly uses homophobic language without any criticism from his Western admirers. It goes without saying that homosexuality is criminalized throughout the Muslim world.

Engels viewed homosexuality as a perversion born out of the bourgeois way of life that would be eliminated under socialism. The Revolutionary Communist Party of the United States stated that homosexuality “is a product of the decay of capitalism” and vowed that once the revolution took place, a “struggle will be waged to eliminate it and reform homosexuals.”

The left’s shift on this issue, as on many issues, was purely tactical. The left’s leading lights were racists who jumped into civil rights. They were sexists who became feminists. They were advocates for the working class who despised the idea of working for a living.

The message of the Eich purge is not, “accept gay marriage,” it’s “don’t question us.” As many have pointed out, Eich had the same view of gay marriage at the time he made that donation as Obama and Hillary.

But Eich wasn’t “us.” He wasn’t a member of the club.

the “club” is not about gay marriage or equal rights for race or gender.

It’s about the supreme power of the club.

You can call the club, liberalism, progressivism or simply “the left.” You can call its members Marxists, Socialists or anything else you like. They go by many names, some real and some fake, but they are the “club”; a totalitarian organization dedicated to absolute power in the name of any available lie.

The left is a totalitarian movement that inverts everything it touches. It fights against poverty by making more men poor. It helps black people by keeping them down, and it promotes tolerance through displays of intolerance. Its endgame is simply raw power. It wants as much of it as it can get its hands on.

The left does not hate the right because of gay marriage. It does not hate the right because it thinks that the right is racist, sexist, transphobic, semaphoric or plasmatic. It hates the right because it is not of the left. The right stands in the way of its absolute power. These two things are enough to be hated.

Totalitarian movements are destructive. They feed off conflict and desire absolute power. They cannot be compromised with, reasoned with or appeased. Instead they have to be exposed for what they are.

The only way to beat a totalitarian movement is to expose the dirty little secret that it is not pro-black, pro-gay, pro-woman or pro anything except pro-power. It is a greedy, corrupt and selfish movement that does not stand for a better world tomorrow, but for unlimited abuses of power in the world today.

This is brilliant.

Purgatory: A Socratic Dialogue

I really good explanation about Purgatory! Even do I believe in purgatory it has always bother me, maybe because of the way I was educated on it! My parents instead of telling me that I was going to hell, told me that I was going to purgatory, for everything, so it became something scary! But if you heard the audio in the link, at the end, Matt explains that purgatory shouldn’t be scary, cause if we are there, we are already saved, we are just in a purification phase!

The there is this: Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI) seemed to side with those theologians who say that purgatory may be the very encountering of God’s love which purifies us and might not take any “time” at all. He wrote, “[Purgatory] is the inwardly necessary process of transformation in which a person becomes capable of Christ, capable of God and thus capable of unity with the whole communion of saints.” [1] 

Which makes it look even less scarier than before! Cause I was told that a year in purgatory was like 10 years in earth, or something like that!

Does God knowing the future preclude free decisions?

polishedlake:

Theological fatalists claim that God foreknowing your future actions renders them un-free. Consider their argument.

(1) Necessarily, if God knows that I will do X, then I will do X.
(2) God knows that I will do X.
(3) Therefore, necessarily, I will do X.

However, (3) doesn’t follow even if (1) and (2) are true. All that follows from (1) and (2) is:

(3*) I will do X.

And yet this is a contingent fact and ipso facto is not a necessary fact; I could choose to do otherwise, but it just so happens that I freely choose to do X. In order for the fatalist to reach her conclusion that (3), she needs to tag a “Necessarily…” at the beginning of (2). But in that case,

(2*) Necessarily, God knows that I will do X 

..is obviously false. God might well have foreknown that I will do not-X instead. One plausible lesson we could learn here is that, even though by definition God knows the truth values for all propositions — which secures the truth of (1) — nonetheless God’s knowledge isn’t what causes me to do X. Rather, God knows I will do X because that’s what I in fact choose to do. 

I’m not sure I totally understand, but interesting!
