I watched the service at the National Cathedral today, and it was quite nice. They say not to talk about religion and politics, but on this blog, both of them are fair game. Also, I comment on the Women's March on Washington while I am at it.
I will give those that do not know this truth of the prayer, history, religion and intolerance. It concerns the Lord's Prayer. A minister spoke at the service at the National Cathedral today, and said he was going to pray in the words of Jesus. Everything was fine with me until they got to the words that irritate me, and have been used as Jesus's words for centuries. That is, For Thine is the power and the glory. etc. I want to set the record straight. Those were NOT Jesus' words. Those were the words of a prayer that King Henry VIII ordered the turncoat Cardinal Woolsey to add after commissioning Woolsey to write a Henry VIII prayer. This was at the time when Henry was killing priests, nuns, Catholics and alike because he wanted sex with other women and could not get a divorce(s), so his method of divorce were legal and chopped off the heads of women he married). A king who probably committed every sin in the 10 commandments at least once. The history of the Protestant and Catholic clashes are a cancer on the Christian religion. I am sure God is and was quite peeved at the naked aggression and narcissism of the two men involved and religions who have added these words as part of the Lord's Prayer. It is AMAZING that modernity has not rectified this false part of the prayer or at least put an asterisk into the prayer books. It stinks and the record needs to be cleared. And now the Catholic Church has added these words in the Mass. I was at a Mass for my dead mother when I heard those words and confronted the priest after Mass. He said, what do you want me to do when it is ordered by the church? Well maybe you can head to a cathedral and post it on the door for all the people and the media to see that the words of a chronic murderer are now in the Mass.
I am a very bad Catholic. About every 20 to 30 years, I show up to confession, and the priest makes an appointment for me. Try spending an hour beating the hell out of yourself because of things you did. I only go to church for weddings, funerals, and when I REALLY need something like the health of my daughter. However, I talk to God and pray for my many close and far, friends and foes including my sinful self. Lately I have been praying for our new president, the righteous in government and the many crooks that are in and have left government that something changes in this morally corrupt country. I am also praying for the morally bankrupt, aiding and abetting women who are marching on Washington for another abortion event under the name of Donald Trump is a Meany. What frauds. They cannot accept that A FETUS LIVES, AND HAS A SEPARATE DNA than the mother and father, but a product of both. Women say that it is their body and they have NO obligation for what they created in a moment of stupidity, please do not hand me the rape and incest excuse because I may give you t. Men, in most cases do shun the obligation and responsibility of their creation. An immoral woman would say, look it is my body, why should I sacrifice. That is like men saying, yeah, you sent me a draft notice to protect women and children against the NAZIs, but it is my life and body so I want a safe place with teddy bears to cuddle. Both types are simple minded people avaoiding an obligation. OK, so I am off topic.
Now, back to my own immoral life. I acknowledge it unlike many people who are full of themselves, but I was smart enough, and had the ability to know that there are methods to avoid pregnancy before I turned from a human being to an animal for an orgasm, and I just insulted anomals because they have an instinct to procreate where we have a real choice and abortion on demand should not be part of it.
I hope that I will be able to do what the old Irish saying is, that I can sneak into heaven before the devil knows I am gone. JUST SAYING. Show you principles, morality and reason in your arguments. I will not respond to the typical, Tom you are a racist, homophobe, military killer, insane, A MAN, trogladite, and all those other words you call me, but if I call you and old biddie, I get corrected by the so called powers to be for being a racist, homophobe, misoninist, and a MAN who does not know I lost my husband and the usual so called non aggressive aggressor.
If you disagree with me, go ahead and tell me, but you will have to argue with history, morality, obligations, science, DNA logic and the rest. Do not give me some CRAT talking pint, speak from your heart as I just did.. So please look this up first.
