Also about state and church+126The UK's church and state are directly linked, America's are not. And yet interestingly, an open atheist in the UK stands way more chance of being elected than someone constantly professing their religious belief, where the US is again the opposite. It's interesting how things turn out. amirite?
Also about state-73If your state offers medical marijuana and a hospital your visiting doesnt offer you a joint, they are not state of the art, amirite?
Also about state and church+545You don't understand why the state is so against gay marriage. The church maybe, but the state is supposed to be separate from all religion, amirite?
Also about church+61The Catholic Church is in serious difficulties. Pope Francis advocates important theological , moral and economic reforms in the governance of the Roman Catholic Church, These reforms ,long overdue, are well accepted in general by the faithful in the pew, but the conservative wing of the hierarchy in Rome and some bishops and priests in the dioceses put up a fierce resistance to these reforms. I don't want to take sides but I find that Pope Francis is almost alone in his mission to reform the Church. Do we have to answer enthusias tically Hans Kung'call to support Pope in his reforms? amirite?
