Text Size: A | A

U.S. Army First Lt. Michael Costello visited Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery in Niskayuna on Monday to remember people like Theodore A. Spring, Madeleine L. Murray and Howard T. O’Brien. All three veterans served their country in times of crisis — Spring in World War I, Murray in World War II, O’Brien during the Korean War. Every May, their graves inside the Route 7 cemetery are marked by small American flags — markers for Memorial Day. ...

As Catholic's, will Roman Catholicism ever divorce itself from the Left wing agenda of the Democratic party and really take a stand for Christ Jesus???? This is the same Catholic Church led by the American Left, that helped re-patriot thousands of Nazi war criminals to the US and South America during and after WW 2. This is the same Catholic Church, that signed a secret peace treaty (The Scarlett and Black Peace Accord) through the Vatican and especially Pope Pius the 12th with Nazi Germany who was led by Adolf Hitler that the church would turn its back on our Jewish brethren in Europe while supplying the Nazi regime with the names and the where-bouts of specific Jews in Europe who were adjudicated for extermination because they were deemed enemies of the Third Reich. With the signing of the Scarlett and Black Peace Accord, the Nazi's agreed not to capture and/or bomb the Vatican to keep safe the holy relics of the Church and provided that the Administrator's of the Catholic Church give up any traders of the Third Reich especially if they were of the Jewish faith. This my friend's is a violation of the First Commandment which creates Idolatry over choosing God. This is the same Catholic Church that once again turned it's back on the nation's poor indigent people when during the FDR Administration the Church agreed to allow the federal government to handle the taking care of these people instead of the Church so the church could keep it's 501c3 tax exemption and create more people who would vote for the democratic party.

Continuing from above: What a nice exchange. This has led to today's out of control welfare state of entitlement's that says the issue of welfare is a civil right instead of people being taught to take care of themselves. The church also is leaning toward the issues of accepting abortion and same-sex marriage while becoming tolerated within its walls and are also seen as a civil right. An old Mediterranean proverb says; "If you give a man a fish he becomes depended upon you, but if you teach a man to fish he becomes able to take care of himself." This is what St. Paul wrote about in his Epistles to the new followers and how far we have separated ourselves from the original intent of the faith. Don't get me wrong, Christ says we are to take care of the poor to a certain point, but to teach people to become subservient to the government robs that person of his individuality and creates Idolatry to the state. This is the same Catholic Church today that secretly supports the administering of abortifacient birth control method's, procedures and drugs while at the same time secretly supporting same-sex marriage between homosexuals which btw violates the Ten Commandments against committing Murder and Adultery where the Church leaders only supplies lip service in disavowing its organization with these practices so once again it can keep its tax exemption status with the federal and state governments of this land. Yes sir! The Catholic Church that Christ Jesus founded over 2,000 years-ago would become led by hypocrites and sinners that the Book of Revelation tells us this same church will become the False Prophet during the Tribulation time of this current age that leads its member astray. As Catholics we have a lot to be proud of as I have illustrated here. Like John-the-Baptist, who became the lone voice in the wilderness, we the Evangelical movement of the church is telling these sinners and hypocrites that those of us who like the first era of Christians warned the church they were headed over the proverbial cliff by supporting the sin of others while hiding behind the facade that these issues are of a human civil right and that it out weights the law's of God have created a dangerous ground to walk upon. We are as the original Christian's were being mocked, ridiculed and laughed at by the mainstream of the church as being kook's and weirdos because of our traditional holdings. If the church doesn't separate itself from the leanings of the Left it will once again implode as we witnessed with the Sex-Abuse Scandal and we will loose more members to wander about as lost souls.

I'm not Roman Catholic, but this screed, full of half-truths and distortions, is entirely inappropriate.

Separate yourselves from 'the sinners' and the Left, eh?
I'm not sure you know anything about your Jesus Christ and the life he lived.

Some writing advice: keep your thoughts to a few sentences, otherwise you just look like you enjoy the sound of your voice too much.

My friend, Mr. or Ms. Twohands, who is my dear brother in Christ, it is so very appropriate to criticize my church for its short comings especially when the organization like the government lies to its people to secure a benefit or a privilege. As an avid church member I can tell you that these are incidents that have happened and are happening right this second. I suggest you look up the history of the Roman Catholic Church...You never know, you might learn something instead of being ignorant to the truth.

Mr. ChuckD...This is why I thank the Lord for idiotic Leftist's such as yourself because it is so easy to pick apart your moronic banter. First of all, he is not your Jesus Christ, he is our Jesus Christ and he belongs to the whole world not just a select few. You see its not difficult to separate the sinners from the Left because you are one in the same which includes yourself. I know more about the bible and the true mission of why Christ took on human flesh and what the link his life has with the traditions of the Jewish faith as it pertains to why the sacrificing of a male lamb without blemish that is offered to Almighty God as a sacrifice for the sins of the many for the atonement of these sins of mankind and why his death needed to parallel this Jewish custom. Christ Jesus took our place by his suffering and death so we don't have to go through a spiritual death, damnation for our sins and eternal separation from God. I highly doubt you know what is the meaning of what it is to be saved by the Lamb's blood. But since your a smart guy I would guess you are up on this part of scripture but I guess I am wrong. As a Leftist, I doubt you have ever picked up a bible to read and study the contents and apply it to your life. If you have picked up the bible I am sure it is to say this book is full of hate and divisiveness and needs to be rewritten so it doesn't offend certain groups of people because of their wrong doings, i.e. homosexuals and supporters of abortion and euthanasia. This is the current fervor of the American Left which is something I am sure you support whole hardheartedly.

Continued from above: You see, Jesus is a loving and caring God, but he is a just and righteous God that says sin must be punished and we all fall short of God's expectation of us as a people. To the American Left it is a book of racism, bigotry, sexism and homophobia using xenophobia to spread the word of God through fear of damnation. Which, btw the word of God doesn't apply to Leftist like yourself, because it assigns a code of ethics and morality to ones life and makes a person accountable for their actions, except if your a Leftist. This to a Leftist is like the cross is to Dracula. As an Evangelical, some may turn the other cheek but I defend my belief's and relationship with God in a tongue and cheek manner that exposes fools like yourself about how ignorant you are about the truth of the RCC. BTW, I don't see you contesting any of my charges against the hypocrisy of the church which also shows your ignorance and stupidity when it comes to historical facts of the church. My elongated retorts are done in the hopes that morons like yourself can understand since it takes a Leftist longer than the average person to comprehend what they are reading because of all the dope you guys and gals smoked in school when you were supposed to be in a classroom learning something of relevance. I don't think I want any writing style advice from an idiot that cannot to defend a position which makes you a fool. I hope to talk to you real soon my dear brother in Christ.
