Government is corrupting the Catholic Church

In 1991, John Szado, 81, died after being brutalized by police in Sacramento's cathedral. The police were invited by the bishop to protect against protests of an inaugural bash honoring pro-abortion and pro-homosexual GOP Gov. Pete Wilson.

What would happen if an "unrepentant" governor — Brown or former Gov. Schwarzenegger or Davis (all false Catholics) — want to politic at St. Anne's Catholic Church? How many men are going to risk their lives like John Szabo to declare God's territory? Will they side with the members of Christ's Mystical Body or the deceiver from government?

For the last 50 years (note time frame), welfare and social spending has been one of the U.S. Catholic Conference's main goals. The federal government has been providing 65 percent of the $2 billion annual budget of the U.S. bishops' Catholic Charities — the largest single expenditure of any religious group. Faith-based initiatives of President Bush? Or spiderweb control?

The price of taking federal money: Is it not truth? Will the bishops be scared of losing money if they protest abortion? Complaints? You accept government money with strings attached (witness pathetic Georgetown University).

The question has been posed as to why religions should be denied federal funds. Actually, the federal government shouldn't be supporting any group — abortion, Planned Parenthood, birth control, food stamps, corporate subsidies and foundations, public welfare, education, foreign aid, political wars overseas, etc. Aside from defense and the protection of life, federal responsibilities should be few.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency financed terrorism by allowing refugee camps in the Middle East to become arsenals for training and military operations. The main supporter? U.S. taxpayers — federal government. Debt? Trillions unpaid in college federal student loans alone.

"Inalienable" rights come from God. You either submit to God or tyrants. God must rule government; government must not vainly try to control God. Thus, the church must remain free from "financial" strings of governmental puppetry.

Government health care? Pure capitalism is intentionally not practiced today. However, be careful in downgrading "free enterprise." You will soon see its full substitute.

    Anyone who would put words in another persons mouth takes what they say out of context to make himself look good, is a person who has a limited vocabulary and is a liar!

    Anyone who claims, like Robert Jacobs, to be the recipient of divine spiritual commands, sent to him personally from the Creator of the Universe, authorizing him to inflict his righteous judgment on others, is a delusional crackpot.

    Joanne, Its not that he is calling an individual a false Catholic, its that the Catholic Cult is false!
    This is righteous judgment Joanne and is commanded by God. Of course anyone who isn't saved or lacks understanding of the things of God should remain quiet because the things of God are spiritually discerned! They are not figured out by brain power or reasoning!

    The bible says: The things of God are foolishness to those who do NOT believe!

    And your statement that Mr. Arthur needs an appointment for confession for his transgression is without merit! Jesus died on the cross for all sins, past, present and future sins. There is no need to go to confession, unless you are saying what Jesus did on the cross wasn't enough? Is that what you are saying? The bible says, confess, and repent. Confession doesn't mean telling God what you've done or what the sin is you committed, because he already knows what you've done or what sin you committed! Confession means to agree with the word of God, and to repent means to have a change of mind about that sin. And because Jesus died on the cross (which covered every sin) after you confess and repent you go on.... Because just because someone is saved doesn't mean you won't sin! The bible says you will always sin while in this body of sin and death!

    The bible says, spiritually you cannot sin (if you are indeed saved and belong to Jesus) because God's seed is in you so you cannot sin, ( for those who don't understand) sin that God will never count against you! I sin every day, and so does every other Christian I know but the difference between those who are not saved and those who are (Christians) is that Christians strive to be in God's likeness! And its a hard thing to do because we are not God!

    And every true Christian has a duty to call those into righteous judgment when they see those who bare false witnesses! Or those who preach not the truth!

    I don't expect you to agree or to even understand what I've said, you would have to be saved and enlightened by God!

    I was saved at 44, and I'm not a perfect Christian. Nor am I meek and let people run me. The truth is in my heart and no one except for God can see it! Although you can tell a Christian by his or her walk, but if you are looking for a perfect Christian or someone even close, you aren't going to find one!

    That isn't what being a Christian is about anyway! I'm not on this planet to prove myself to you or anyone other than God!

    It is amazing that those who are commanded by God NOT to judge are constantly doing so. And why must they do so in the local newspaper.

    For self-glorification. Hope Mr. Arthur has an appointment set for confession for this transgression - he who allows himself to call others "false Catholics."
