PP SECTS:As if the governing party didn't have enough problems already - it now looks as if ex president Aznar is setting up either himself or someone else, should there be a disaster in the December general elections THE POPE etc. As I look at the fotos of the Catholic prelates in their silk and gold, gathered for a congress on the family, two qestions leap to mind:- 1. What experience do any of them have of a family? Even the gay ones. 2. If he came back today, would Christ really go in for all that pomp and circumstance? And that,folks, is all for today. My hard disk is defunct, it seems. And I'M struggling to write this on my new phone.

Answer to 1. They will know about a family like anyone else who came from one. Answer 2. You will only know when Christ comes back and you ask Him. My question - have you been drinking too much today?

Not a very Christian insinuation, I think.

I meant having or managing a family, Eamon. I was going to add they didn't even have any experience of having a partner. Except the gay ones. But I didn't want to upset too many readers.

How can a doctor treat someone suffering from a migraine if the doctor has never had one? Why are single people employed as marriage guidance counsellors? These two questions are just as dumb as the two you asked in your blog.

I have heard all these analogies and more from my ultra Catholic sister but don't find them persuasive. Families don't go by the book. Experience is esential for wisdom and empathy.

I have been reading your blog as you know for many years and I know nothing is going to change your mind about the Catholic Church. You asked a question whereas in fact you should have made a statement about the prelates so you shouldn't be surprised if I give an answer. Your second question is really asking the readers to have the same opinion as you that Christ would castigate the the Catholic Church clergy who are not doing as He preached. Well here is my answer to your question. I think that Christ would say that He didn't like the colour of their vestments and preferred them to wear brown at all times. I am deliberately being sarcastic. Your two questions have been around for decades and there is nothing original about them. Speak your mind and don't beat about the bush by trying to ask questions when you already know what the answer is.

I have no objections to your comments, Eamon. Nor to your beliefs and your freedom to express them.

My view is that the prelates are less interested in the wellbeing of families than in the imposition of their dogma and doctrines on them.

Furthermore, I regard the church as iniquitous and pernicious. For my reasons,see Russell's, 'Why I am not a Christian.' That said, I continue to have Catholic relatives and friends.
