The Evil Of Catholicism


The movie I forced myself to  yesterday was The Exorcism Of Emily Rose. Back in the mid-1970s I had viewed the original movie titled The Exorcist written by William Peter Blatty and it simply scared the Bee-Jesus out of me, I swore to myself that I would never watch such crap designed to stir up primal fears again. But now I've gone ahead and done it anyway.

This latest exorcist story was more of a  courtroom drama and, as such, wasn't as viscerally terrifying as the first but I still wish I hadn't watch it. Movies such as these, blindly accepting faith in nonsensical religious quackery, only strengthen my aversion (my abhorrence) to The Catholic Church. After witnessing such downright charlatanism, such blatant perversion of logic and reason, I knew that I needed something beautiful and good to wipe away the stains of superstitious claptrap, to help cleanse my inner self... so I searched the Internet and found just what did the trick.

I think it would be a good idea for me to search out a large picture of Mila to use as wallpaper for my computer monitor.

On this day in 1973, future President Jimmy Carter filed a report with the National Investigations Committee on Aerial  Phenomena (NICAP), claiming he had seen an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) in October 1969.

During the presidential campaign of 1976, Democratic challenger Carter was forthcoming about his belief that he had seen a UFO. He described waiting outside for a Lion's Club Meeting in Leary, Georgia, to begin, at about 7:30 p.m., when he spotted what he called "the darndest thing I've ever seen" in the sky. Carter, as well as 10 to 12 other people who witnessed the same event, described the object as "very bright with changing colors and about the size of the moon." Carter reported that "the object hovered about 30 degrees above the horizon and moved in toward the earth and away before disappearing into the distance." He later told a reporter that, after the experience, he vowed never again to ridicule anyone who claimed to have seen a UFO.

During the presidential campaign of 1976, Carter promised that, if elected president, he would encourage the government release "every piece of information" about UFOs available to the public and to scientists. After winning the presidency, though, Carter backed away from this pledge, saying that the release of some information might have "defense implications" and pose a threat to national security.



The faith, practice, and church order of the Roman Catholic Church.

Catholicism is a broad term for describing specific traditions in the Christian churches in theology and doctrine, liturgy, ethics and spirituality. For many the term usually refers to Christians and churches, western and eastern, in full communion with the Holy See, usually known as the Catholic Church or the Roman Catholic Church.
