Usted está injusta, ana Caspar. Este pecado no fue promovido por gloria.tv sino por un cardenal y una arquidiócesis católica. Más tarde, el mismo «artista» que produjo esto, fue invitado a hacer una escultura por la catedral de Viena. Por lo tanto, si usted quiere quejarse y acusar, se quejan y acusan en el lugar correcto.
Don't blame the painter. The one to be blamed is the Cardinal who allowed such an abomination to go on in his diocese (even when the public scandal broke). To blame are also the other bishops (the pope included) who let this evil Cardinal go on with his blasphemies.
Poor human reason, when it trusts in itself, substitutes the strangest absurdities for the highest divine concepts.
~ St John Chrysostom
Saint John Chrysostomdenounces homosexual acts as being contrary to nature. Commenting on the Epistle to the Romans (1: 26-27), he says that the pleasures of sodomy are an unpardonable offense to nature and are doubly destructive, since they threaten the species by deviating the sexual organs away from their primary procreative end and they sow disharmony …[Más]
Saint Peter Damian’s Liber Gomorrhianus [Book of Gomorrha],addressed to Pope Leo IX in the year 1051, is considered the principal work against homosexuality. It reads: “Just as Saint Basil establishes that those who incur sins [against nature] … should be subjected not only to a hard penance but a public one, and Pope Siricius prohibits penitents from entering clerical orders, one can clearly deduce that he who corrupts himself with a man through the ignominious squalor of a filthy union …[Más]
Well, I can see from some of the posts below that indeed Gloria TV has been infiltrated by non-believers.
I don't know if Crusader himself is one such infiltrator, but I think he makes the error that is actually not uncommon amongst Catholics--being more against the devil than for God. It is enough to tell others of these abominations, so they are prepared. There is no call whatsoever to scandalize others by showcasing the work. E.g., it is charitable to warn others against directors such as … [Más]
After the nice dinner with the wife (go to an Italian restaurant and try the veal parmesan with a nice chianti), then a romantic movie, a little hand-holding and a stolen kiss or two then come home. A nice after dinner liqueur amaretto would be about right and put the following CD or it's equavlaent on your sound system. If all this doesn't mellow you out and put you in the mood for something other than battle (wink … [Más]
It never ceases to amaze me what some men enjoy looking at.
What amazes me is the naiveté (read:stupidity) of some people.
Other than YOU, who said anything about enjoyment?
I am disgusted by this painting as much as anyone. However, to pretend that it was not (in 2008) in a public display at a museum associated with a Catholic Church is self- defeating. It was there and it was removed as the direct result of worldwide outrage.
PLEASE REPORT IT TOO. ------------------------------------ Sorry, No!
The painter, Austrian artist Alfred Hrdlicka who died in December of 2009, is described as a communist and atheist. This painting appeared in Vienna in 2008 at the Cathedral museum “attached to the Catholic Church.”
In the United States, conservative columnist Rod Dreher wrote on his widely read religion blog "I wouldn’t have guessed that, given his reputation, a man like (Cardinal) Schoenborn would have stood for this … [Más]
Look, this video is a valid news item and has received 111,378 hits. The news is not always pretty and I would rather chose to be informed than the alternative. Obviously, it is not meant for children or "more sensitive" viewers.
>>>a video of this nature would be considered delict, an abomination, a felony;
You do not hesitate in criticizing others when they do or say anythiing that does not meet your enlightened approval. But speaking of "felony" do you know what the … [Más]
Well.....really!! However, this video is NO different from any of the OTHER blasphemous videos published onto this website, e.g. Liturgical and Clerical abuses of monumental proportions, Half-naked men dancing in the sactuary of a church, immigration problems (which have nought to do with what goes on here), and all other sensationalist and non-edifying videos.
This video just represents the distance to which man can fall from the Truth and, in so doing, rebel against God (i.e. the artist in … [Más]
