    VERY funny!
    And, humor aside, that’s the pithiest-yet-most-accurate portrayal of the Obama/Biden campaign that I’ve seen.

    Way to go, Tom.

      Thanks. I’m hoping for some serious substance now that Ryan is on the ticket.

    “You go to Hell for lying the same as stealing…” is something my grandfather said many times. If this is true both sides better get used to the heat.

      No one goes to hell for sinning. We go to hell for turning from God and not accepting his forgiveness and love. Luckily, God never gives up on us until we breathe our last breath.

        I was just trying to point out that both sides are getting dirtier and dirtier in this election. 🙂

    Carried over from previous post – in case you missed my question:
    Why don’t Catholics (or Christians in general) condemn divorce (especially no-fault divorce) the same as same-sex marriage? Jesus never spoke of homosexuality (and even Paul’s stand can be debated). Jesus spoke out several times against divorce – he saw it as adultery.

    • quinersdiner on August 16, 2012 at 9:56 am

      They do. The Catholic catechism is just as explicit on the seriousness of divorce as it is homosexuality: “Divorce is a grave offense against the natural law. It claims to break the contract, to which the spouses freely consented, to live with each other until death. Sacramental marriage is the sign of the covenant of salvation, to which divorce does incredible injury. Contracting a new union, even if it is recognized by civil law, adds to the gravity of the rupture: the remarried spouse is then in a situation of public and permanent adultery. If a husband, separated from his wife, becomes involved with another woman, he is an adulterer because he makes that woman commit adultery; and the woman who lives with him is an adulteress, because she has drawn another’s husband to herself.” We’ll try to respond more fully later today. Thanks for writing.

        I look forward to your response.
