FordGalaxy you're welcome. If you're interested in additional reading/explanations you should check out this link http://www.ewtn.com/faith/teachings/papac2.htm.

SickandTired 1 year, 6 months ago on Argentina's Bergoglio elected, chooses Pope Francis as name

FordGalaxy I think when most non-Catholics hear we believe the Pope is infallible they associate infallible with "perfect". The concept of infallibility is threefold: Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and Magisterium. We believe the Pope is infallible in regard to teaching Catholic doctrine on faith and morals as Jesus taught. Pope infalliblity does not mean he is without sin or incapable of making mistakes. Kevin said it best "No Pope will ever change the interpretation or the teachings of the Catholic Bible. So if Catholics and non-Catholics are looking for Pope Francis to change church views on priests marrying, same sex marriage or abortion......well it isn't going to happen. I would say to those Catholics expecting these changes, convert to Episcopalian or another religion.

Just to clarify.....caterpillars do not mate! caterpillars are immature. Butterflies do the mating. The brain of a butterfly is about the size of a pinpoint. So they don't have very complicated love affairs :D

....yes the GCPS would be considered excellent IF you believe everything Wilbanks' says. For example JAW throws out a county graduation rate of over 80% when in reality the GCPS graduation rate is considerably lower. In 2011 it was 67.56%. Heck, Hall county has a better rate than Gwinnett.

Completely agree with Toby. BTW, has Alvin offered to take a pay cut? His salary is ridiculous for a glorified shop teacher. NGHS has a "discipline prinicipal". His main job is to confiscate cell phones, go through text messages to "get something on the kids", and hand out tardy slips. I would bet Mr. S is making well over $50K. Not to mention the guidance counselors are for the most part completely useless and no help at all.

Another fine example of a student-athlete from UGA. 2 years ago a theft charge now a DUI. Will fit in just fine with the NFL.

SickandTired 1 year, 7 months ago on THOMAS: Obama recycling old and failed ideas

i'm not buying the Desiline Victor story. Sorry, but I find it hard to believe poll workers made her "stand" in line for 6 hours. I did early voting at George Pierce Park and the poll workers there pulled a woman to the front of the line, she was about 40 years old, but she had a cast on her leg. In addition, the poll workers were walking down the line saying anyone 70 years old or over would be pulled to the front of the line. Heck, didn't a poll worker in Atlanta give Usher preferential treatment? he didn't wait in line to vote. Like I said I'm not buying it!

SickandTired 1 year, 9 months ago on Dick's stores suspend rifle sales nationwide

Plus Dick's customer service sucks. Ever try to get someone in that store to help you? Next to impossible. On a differrent note, I think the term "assault" weapon is thrown around to easily. Isn't every gun technically an "assault" weapon? Whether a person owns a gun for personal protection or sport - if you use it you're assaulting someone/something (human or animal). In reality, assault rifle is a misnomer as it connects an action with a weapon. Any assault involving a rifle by definition means one is using an assault rifle.
