    Rakka Rage,

    I read about the CC guy on another site. That is truly amazing to me that someone can hit someone and have so little compassion as to just leave them there.

    I have an interesting tid bit to add. Maybe it's a Catholic thing.

    I was gone for 2 months because my life was thrown into turmoil by a young CC woman by the name of Ellie. She was my neighbor, and was the most annoying person I have ever met. She came to my house 15 times a day, knocking, ringing, ringing, knocking until I came to the door.

    She came to my bedroom window one night and knocked on it too! I called the Police. That same night I was sitting in my kitchen looking out the window WAITING for the police to show. She came out of her apartment, got into her truck and proceeded to back out of her space. When she did she VIOLENTLY struck the vehicle next to here. THEN, she drove forward and hit it AGAIN! I saw the whole thing. When the police arrived I told them what she did. When she came home, she tried to deny it, but with an eye witness, she was TICKETED, not even tested for drugs or alcohol, (she's an alcoholic), and they left.

    I was home alone with my 3 kids, and the psycho drunk woman who now wanted to kill me was in the apartment across from me.

    For a week, every time I came out of my apartment, she was in her patio waiting for me, yelling obscenities at my children and I. We asked the complex to either release us from our lease or evict her. They did both.

    We were offered an apartment in the newer, better, bigger, more expensive complex down the hill, for the SAME price we were getting our other apt for. So all in all God took care of us. But THAT all took place because a DRUNK Catholic woman committed a hit and run, and I saw it.

    Crazy huh?

    Gee you sure are running low on charity aren't you.

    Nothing like infering, because there are "bad" Catholics that means we are all suspect.

    You aren't setting much of an example for SDA.

    What does that tell you, sir?

    As for me, I would rather say something good about another person, Catholic or otherwise, else say nothing at all...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that Vatican II emphasized the importance of psychotic belligerent drunks in the scheme of Catholic lay ministry. Thanks for pointing that out.

    I don't think the poor behavior of either of these RC's is a "catholic thing" - except as it relates to covering up priests criminal activity and sending them to another perish.

    It is common for other denominations to move pastors that get into trouble - but usually it is not criminal activity that they are covering up.

    As for the priests getting into homosexual trouble - the "Goodbye good men" book does show how normal people are not wanting to go into the priesthood that is so heavily influenced with that particular crime.

    In Christ,

    Yet look at who the others concentrated on!

    There is a point in there somewhere, and you swerved right into it...

    Bill,

    Unless you are blind, which I assume you are not, the second link is about a HIT AND RUN, which is what MY story is about.

    MUST BE A CATHOLIC THING is referring to HIT AND RUN.

    I'm pretty sure that the ideals of many in Catholicism, you know, do what you want, you can just go confess it later, have EVERYTHING to do with these 2 people committing a serious crime and then fleeing the scene.

    There is no insinuation in my post.

    You are reading something into it, due to your already defensive nature about the CC.

    HIT AND RUN.

    That's what it was about.

    Nothing more, nothing less.

    God Bless,
    Kelly

    </font>[/QUOTE]LaRae, LaRae, LaRae, do you think I care if I set an example for the SDA????

    The first part of my post, did you even read it? It has the word COMPASSION in it. Did you read the entire story? Or just friek when you saw 'catholic thing'?

    The man in the link was CATHOLIC, and commited a HIT AND RUN.

    The woman in my story was CATHOLIC and committed a HIT AND RUN.

    Two Catholics, both HIT AND RUN.

    Maybe it's a CATHOLIC THING. MEANING- that's the only thing those two seem to have in common.

    What you should be more concerned with is the EXAMPLE that this priest, one of YOUR supposed 'holy' fathers, is making for the CC.

    The majority of my extended family is Catholic. Do you honestly think that I harbor some kind of secret hatred for Catholics?

    Give me a break.

    Kelly,

    I'm sure that you'll be happy to hear that

    1) the Catholic Church does not promote hit-and-run driving, and

    2) based on my (admittedly anecdotal) experience as an attorney, such events don't seem to congregate around any particular religious group.

    God bless,

    Mark

    Good job, counselor!

    Not to mention the fact that the accused is innocent until proven guilty!

    I hope and pray that this old man really and truly did not know what happened when he hit that "object" that suddenly loomed into his path!

    But if he is guilty as it may be found by a jury, like any person, he must suffer the consequenses.

    Now, have they found the second vehicle that also hit this man? That vehicle also left the scene, and so far as I can tell, not one whit of a bit of information has been forthcoming...

    ...too busy concentrating on the "juicy details" of this happening to a Catholic bishop, I suppose, sadly.........

    God bless,

    PAX

    Lord, grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change,
    the courage to change the things that I can,
    and the wisdom to know the difference.
    Living one day at a time,
    enjoying one moment at a time;
    accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
    taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,
    not as I would have it;
    trusting that you will make all things right
    if I surrender to Your will;
    so that I may be reasonably happy in this life
    and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
    Amen.

    </font>[/QUOTE]I'll give you a break when you lay off your comments you make about Catholics in various threads. This isnt't the first time you've done this....so trying to back pedal won't help you.

    You made another snide little comment in this very thread, to Bill about how Catholics can basically do what they want and go confess it.....that's not what the Church teaches...you can't premeditate sin .....saying oh well I'm going to commit adultry but I'll go to confession right after that.

    You like to focus on the shortcomings of Catholics...I have not seen you making these comments about any other clergy member. Well guess what...there is sin everywhere, no religion is exempt.

    I know exactly what you meant by your "maybe it's a Catholic thing" and I don't appreciate it.

    You should care about the example you set for others, regardless of your religious affiliation.
