Well apparently someone else thinks he understands Roman Catholicism without reading Church documents. If he had taken time to read even this one document, he wouldn’t sound so off-base. It is on the Vatican website, no less. For another helpful interaction with this issue, see Raymond Brown’s (a pope appointed member of the Pontifical Biblical […]
Thousands of people are reported to be staying out of Rome for the next few days, over fears the city will be hit by a huge earthquake. The panic was sparked by rumours that seismologist Raffaele Bendandi, who died in 1979, predicted the city would be devastated by a quake on 11 May. Officials have […]

One of them being that Paul prayed for the dead. The basis for such a doctrine, sure in […]
Dan Gilgoff has posted an email exchange with John Hagee, the Christian Zionist of Christian Zionists. During the presidential campaign last year, I and a former friend were discussing the break down in John McCain’s Campaign, especially in relation to the Religious Right, starting with John Hagee’s break. His comment was to the effect that […]
As the TEC in Canada and the Unites States continues a steadily descent into liberalism, while maintianing that it is historically Christian, the Anglican Communion will have to face some serious descisions in the coming months.
