Re: Would you wear a mask?

"Way too complicated for me. " From the second paragraph from aquinas, there is no duty to obey an abuse of power. There can even be a duty to disobey. Neither sleepy Joe, nor any of the 50 governors have legitimate authority to impose their superstitions. In the same way that they cant impose a fac...

Re: Figuring Out Religion

One of the objections to the Catholic Church is her teaching that the Mass is a true sacrifice, and not simply the Lord's supper. I share this article as it contains numerous quotations from church fathers of the early centuries, teaching the same beliefs that the Catholic Church holds even to this ...
