Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

the catlik synod
Oct 23, 2014 - 3:33 PM - by Miss Shelby
I really have been out of the loop on just about everything. I read one MSN secular article on this and heard one report on CBS world news. I know enough to be able to find the truth in the reports.

Some how I knew certain Catholics would be trippin' over this and certain Catholics would be celebrating. I wonder how I knew that? (sarcasm). I had the same thought that this is like VII. Its the new modern world in which we live and it's the Church changing with the times or just trying to navigate it. Love it or hate it, it is what it is. The bad part is, Catholics and other Christians who go no further then the secular news have no idea what the Church is really saying.

The conservative end of the spectrum feels the Church is saying you can be gay, you can co- habitat, you can divorce and re marry, etc. while the liberals are saying the same thing but one is happy, the other is mad.

I like how the news said it was Benedict who called homosexuals "intrinsically disordered" and now Francis is not calling them that anymore. Neither is so. The act is what the CCC calls "intrinsically disordered" and the Church is still calling it that.

With out reading anything else I know exactly what the Church is doing, I also knew it was coming... she is just telling Catholics who actually practice that we are no longer going to be mean Catholics, we are going to love and make nice with the ones who struggle with some serious sin. So what if they can't be super Catholics like "us" , we are going to meet them where they're at. We have to keep Catholics in the Church. Better to have them in then out, right? Do I agree with all this? Who knows what I think as if it matters anyway. I do think over all it's lowering the bar for all of our choices and behaviors. this will bring "us" down, we won't bring "them" up. There is such a fine line between compassion and understanding and living rightly. Like, how hard can it be that we're... [Read More]

Gunfire in Canadian Parliament
Oct 22, 2014 - 9:15 PM - by The Man
Not all the details are clear yet, but the New York Times has a story, as does the CBC. The CBC is liveblogging it here. One gunman is dead as is a soldier; there appears to be at least one other gunman who has not been caught, but it's not clear what the scope of this is yet.
