  1. Countless good people die every year at the hands of murderers. Innocent babies die of illness before they can walk. Children die of starvation, neglect and violence all around the world. What sort of "faith" are we talking about here? The faith in a fairy tale world where only the "bad" die and go to hell and the "good" live forever in heaven. Or are we talking about a faith in Jesus message of helping and accepting? The murder of Father Freed should not put the message of Jesus in doubt. In fact, it should only reinforce the message that the world has a lot of suffering to deal with. On the other hand, I can see how the murder would put the fairy tale aspect in question.

    1. Well, it happened. So if there is a god and she has a plan, this heinous murder was all part of said plan.

  3. Do you really have to hide to say that? Can't say that under your own name?

  4. Did you start this discussion in order to out people or to have a rational debate about "faith". So many people have 100% faith in the fairy tale part of religion and have 0% faith in the moral teachings of Jesus that this distinction needs to be made. Judging by Rose's posts over the years, I would be hard pressed to have "faith" that she has any interest in spreading Jesus message of peace, love, equality and acceptance.

  5. Coward. Anonymous libeling coward. Rose is a peach and saintly person Miles Above you trolling s.o.s. and I do mean this in a most genuinely Christian ethical perspective. He was good at pointing out the hypocrites and moral vipers, just the type we see posting as "anonymous" so often on our blogs..

    1. Nice try. I'm don't claim to be a believer in your old little fairy tales, so i can not be consider a false believer(hypocrate). I do have some reading comprehension skills, though and nothing in the new testament resembles what rose preaches on this site.

    2. Is there anyone more F'ed in the head than Stephen Lewis?

  6. Again - if you believe that, why not have the courage to say so, as yourself?

  7. Anonymous the only one believing in a fairy tale is you who needs to denigrate faith, a religion you have no clue about and attacking Rose.

    The priest death is not an excuse for your blathering hate which stems from your insecurities and inability to achieve any real success. Grow up, get a life, and stop trolling.

    1. Talking about Jesus's message is blathering hate to you? I'm attacking people who don't believe in Jesus's message and believe only in the afterlife, heavens, hells, angels, devils, talking snakes, ect. Big difference between people who accept his message and those who hide behind weak "faith" just to follow along with what they perceive as the "winning team".

  9. Anonymous your hatred for Catholicism is obvious. Dont criticize what you dont know. What have YOU done to spread Jesus' message?

    Stephen lets not waste time on him because trolls keep coming back as long as they get attention. And time wasted on this idiot could be used more productively.

  10. My disdain at fake catholics, Christians and muslims is obvious. The bible is not clear on many things, but watching out for hypocrites is high on Jesus list. Im spreading Jesus message of equality, peace, love and sharing right here on this thread. I'm making the hypocrates angry for outing them. This site is full of ANTI Jesus talk and has been for years!!!!!

    1. Please post some evidence where you preached anything about peace, equality, loving, forgiving, ect. Look how you chose to spend your precious time on earth. You have a website devoted to hating another fellow human being. To the casual observer like me, you often come across as mean spirited, not loving. You shut down any discission of helping and immediately try to divide people. If you are really a person of "faith" and you are soul searching now, I would advise you to step back and ask yourself if you honestly worship a poor,homeless radical revolitionary who advocated for there to be no rich people and for there to be abundance for ALL and who preached heavily against religion or do you worship the almighty dollar and the power system that keeps people poor and rewards the few? Or is this whole religion thing just another little hobby for you? You shouldn't have brought up your quandary about losing faith if you weren't prepared to discuss faith like an adult living on earth in 2014

  12. Gary Lee Bullock is apparently according to news article comments the son of Carol Bruno, owner of Peoples' Productions out of Redway,Ca. A Reggae/Hip Hop music (if you really call it that) production company famous for producing Reggae On The River for decades as well as concerts at The Mateel Community Center in Redway.
    So Peoples Productions donated how much to Paul Gallegos' campaigns over the years, including the 2004 Recall? This should be publicly disclosed and available information.

    1. Interesting fact about campaign donations. Since there is no evidence that the present DA is mishandling the case, another post political made by someone with an agenda.

  13. Do "Fairy Tales" leave blood behind containing human DNA with just 23 chromosomes? I wish that being atheist meant you weren't allowed to ridicule Jesus and Christians on a daily basis.
    what a hollow and shallow existence to not take the time to listen to others' beliefs.

  14. Ridiculing hypocrates is not the same as ridiculing Jesus's message. Let me guess, believing in Jesus's DNA is important to you than his message of peace, love, equality and forgiveness? I hear NONE of his message here on this thread, just fear of discussion. This has to be the shallowest group of "believers" that ive ever run across. Real people of faith talk about this stuff constantly. Its not a joke to them, like it is to you. If its so real, then TALK about it or of course you will come across as a hypocrate.

  15. It's a little depressing how every thread on this blog degenerates into personal invective. Apparently that's easier for some people than reasoned analysis.
