    sonship is one of the most joyless ideologues I have ever come across.

    All those who over the months or years have found joy in reading the posts of FMF please testify of your elation here.

    Caljust, you can go first.
    I have found FMF to be one of the more honest, fair-minded posters around here. I get a significant amount of satisfaction from watching him ask some posters very relevant questions about your beliefs. Because of his high intelligence and robust memory he is able to quickly deal with a lot of your dubious claims. He is a valuable asset to this forum.

    He is tenacious like a bulldog when hunting down inconsistencies.

    I guess this thread is your way of demonstrating that his assertion is unfair, and that in fact you are actually full of fun, no?

    Although sad, this is somewhat symbolic

    The Catholic church as devolved to the point of essentially ignoring the world wide mass genocide of abortion, at least according to their theology, while giving sermons on the evils of building walls instead. Don't get me started on the continual pedophilia fiasco that the Lefties in the church refuse to address.

    Then there is Eu ...[text shortened]... edral and build an abortion center or something or perhaps a monument to Karl Marx.

    Enjoy Europe.

    This has nothing to do with the thread, and merely seems antagonistic. Why did you post this?

    The following are the words of my friend and poet, Fred LaMotte...gentle reminder of Jesus' mission on the earth.

    MAUNDAY THURSDAY
    Though I am not a Catholic, I love the mysteries of Holy Week, especially the prayerful practice of Holy Hour on Maunday Thursday, the eve of Good Friday.

    Stripped of decorations and flowers, icons shrouded, the church begins to mourn in a time of loss. We descend through the emptiness that always proceeds the bewildering grace of ananda, the gift of resurrection.

    Creation, and our re-creation, arise "ex nihilo," out of nothing. This is no less true in the Biblical vision of the "formless void" (Genesis 1:2), than in the Heart Sutra of Buddhism.

    Yet on Maunday Thursday, in one corner of the hollow church, the Blessed Sacrament remains in a monstrance on an alter, surrounded by Easter lilies and candlelight, to represent the abiding presence of Christ-Consciousness even in the midst of death's ravishing storm.

    The Seed of the inward Christ remains buried like a star in the heart of loss, at the center of silence, awaiting the touch of the first full moon of Spring. Easter is fixed as the Sunday following the first full moon after the equinox.

    This alter of Presence is a remembrance of the hour when Jesus prayed in the garden of Gethsemane. It was after his Last Supper, and just before he would be arrested by the political authorities. They hated his revolutionary teaching of forgiveness and equality. They feared his radical vision of the Beloved Community, one planetary family, beyond racial, tribal, and religious division.

    Tonight he implores his three closest disciples to stay awake with him as he prays. For the Master needs our companionship, no less than we need the Master's. Yet the three disciples fall asleep. They represent our thinking, dreaming, and slumbering minds, while Jesus is the silent witness, Turiya: the fourth state of consciousness, beyond waking, dreaming, and sleep (Mandukya Upanishad).

    When Jesus finds them nodding off, he sadly asks, "Could you not stay and watch with me one hour?" This verse is the root of the practice of Holy Hour on Maunday Thursday. Sitting in deep meditation for one hour before that luminous alter, we bathe in the Master's presence, and he in ours, witnessing the power of love in the heart of loss.

    Just for today
    a Sabbath
    from knowledge.
    Who really knows?
    Just for today
    a Sabbath
    from judgment.
    Forgiveness is your nature.
    Just for today
    A Sabbath from politics,
    a Sabbath
    from being right.
    If a day is too long
    could you not watch with me
    one hour?
    If an hour is too long
    then for one breath?
    That is enough
    to wash a thousand stars
    in our love.
    Just for now, friend,
    please
    stay with me.

    A NOTE ON THE WORD 'MAUNDAY'
    Most scholars agree that the word "Maundy" derives through the Old French "mandé," from the Latin "mandatum: I give you," the first word of the verse, "Mandatum novum do vobis ut diligatis invicem sicut dilexi vos." And what did Jesus give? "I give you a new commandment : Love one another, even as I have loved you."

    The dry sense of humor gives you great joy ?

    So if his thought is so clear, are you clear now about why you are here in this universe ?

    What have you learned about this from your fellow atheist?
    1. Yes, clever humour gives me joy.
    2. Clarity can sometimes be shown in recognizing the unknowable, as opposed to unsupported wishful thinking.

    You spend half your existence telling people they are posting in the wrong thread and hear you are in this one purely to have an irrelevant dig at another clan leader.

    A Bush Sr. screwup about Panama, wanting to oust Noriega, calling for a coup there, and that happened but failed. Lot of bad press ensued. Then Barr came in with an 'opinion' on law that said the FBI could go into any country in the world and kidnap the leader and bring him to 'justice' in the US, specifically thinking about phase two of the Panama coup. So he testified in congress and used the exact same wording as his so-called summary of Mueller.
    He said then, I can't give you the 'opinion'. I can however give you the summary......
    And lo and behold, he white washed it, looking like he wanted to push through the idea of the US being legally allowed to kidnap any world leader on the planet and bring them to trial in the US.
    The thing was, he said it was only an opinion on domestic law and that was it.
    What came out 2 years later was in fact a scathing comment on the idea, talking about international law and political downsides to such an action.

    So then he sends that memo to Trump, his job application where he said a sitting POTUS cannot be charged and so forth. Trump goes, HE'S MY GUY.
    So now he is doing the exact same thing which will be very clear Thursday when the redacted report comes out. My only question is will the redactions be 60% or up to 90% of the report. It is abundantly clear Barr intends to protect Trump no matter what happens to his reputation which is already in the toilet. He is a two faced liar and a clear Trump toady.

    Well it is nice to see Bernie Sanders have some good press for a change.

    The GOP must really want him to win the Democrat nomination.
    I doubt that very seriously. If Bernie gets in, at least it will be a real human being with empathy. Trump is a clear sociopath and narcissist with ZERO empathy for anyone other than Trump and family. BTW, did you notice his sister, a fed Judge, just had to resign in the wake of yet another Trump family tax fraud scheme.
    I guess none of that matters, go Trump anyway, right? If if he DOES shoot someone in times square, he can do no wrong, right? He is above the law and if he takes over the country in a major coup, that would be alright too, right?

    One thing, I bet dollars to donuts there won't be any more Dems on Faux news. O'rourke, forget it, Cortez would be assassinated. I'd LOVE to see Kamila Harris on Fox. The more Dems on Fox the better to defeat that would be dictator Trump.
