You should develop a boolean search string for your news aggregater. Every day dozens of stories and news reports are published each day about various religions. Jainism is a particular favorite of mine that has stories all the time.Thunktank wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 11:24 pmOh I “read up on” lots of religions too. Once in a while something hits the news in a big way about one or another of them too. Of course the reporting is all about one or two things about the religion and that’s what the average Joe and Jill judge the religion by unless they have other experience with it. It takes a special disposition to go looking for all the bad stuff in anthing.UncleBob wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 7:30 pmActually I do read up on most religions--including "Kingdom Hall". I have since grad school as my Master's is in Religious Studies. It is about transparency. If the RCC had been transparent about its problems when it happened, much misery would have been avoided.Thunktank wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 2:04 pmOh yes, it's so very important that you know every little detail of trouble in the Catholic Church. I'm sure you keep track of every little detail about the Kingdom Hall too. Don't turn this around to some ridiculous crusade of transparency. It isn't. I just want to know why wosbald is always the bearer of bad news. He can post what he likes. I would prefer he become more balanced with it, that's all.UncleBob wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 1:43 pmI dunno... transparency, maybe?Thunktank wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 1:35 pmNo, it isn't. What doesn't help anything is the constant posting on CPS to a bunch of anti Catholic guys who should also be exposed to the beauty found in the Catholic Church instead of all negativity from Catholics. In other words, my post above is more about CPS, not the dirty laundry itself. Yes, the dirty laundry needs cleaning. But why does wosbald have to post on a constant basis all the dirty intrigue of our church here of all places? For what purpose other than harm it further?UncleBob wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 1:21 pmYeah. Secrecy is the way to go.Thunktank wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 12:51 pmI've begun to wonder if CPS' Catholic related threads have become laundromats, that's for sure. It's as though wosbald takes the dirty garments of Christ's beautiful bride to wash them in a mud puddle for her enemies to see. Stop this!sweetandsour wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 7:41 amWow, that's a lot of dirty laundry being hung out right there.wosbald wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 4:52 am+JMJ+
Vatican's bishops czar says papal accuser guilty of 'political frame-job'
What I mean here has nothing to do with transparency. In fact, having some posts on the bad stuff is just fine. We really should be aware of bad stuff. The trouble I personally have with what we have been seeing for the last couple of years since wosbald in particular has decided to post news on CPS about the Church for whatever reason, is how I subjectively perceive it all. Thought he might be interested in knowing how others might perceive his rapid and regular posting. Apparently you approve of it. That’s fine, I just wish he would share more variety. There’s so much more to the Catholic Church than bad news about sinners.
Quite simply, I open up this thread or the Catholic thread thinking to myself, “What bad, horrible, and traumatic news has wosbald found for me today?” It’s not an objective complaint of mine, it’s subjective. I hang out around here sometimes and by golly I just wanted to say that I think all wosbald’s bad news is a real drag after a while. I wish he would share the nice stuff about church life more often. I tried to do that a few times, but for some reason it seems that the only thing people want to talk about concerning the Catholic faith is just the bad stuff. Makes me sad is all.
But who knows, maybe I’m the only one!
You want to b*tch? CPS is certainly the place but once again you attempt to tell me what I am thinking when, once again, you have no clue.
