    I'm not close with any priests. When is a good opportunity to hit an only slightly familiar clergyman with a random question?

    oops double post
  4. Ice_nine added a post in a topic: another should I go to _____ event:" wedding edition   

    Thanks y'alls. I feel kind of stupid asking for life advice on the interwebs but I'm a little socially retarded. I don't use that term as a knock on those with lesser intellectual capacities, but because my social skills are not as evolved or as refined as they should be for someone my age. Meh, one of my many hang-ups ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I am a terrible judge of how close I am to a given person, other than family/extended family or at least I think I am. I'm never sure.
    Anyhow I appreciate the advice. Especially the atheist telling me to talk to a priest. I got a chuckle from that one anomaly. But thanks again people of phatmass. You have much wisdom.

    so like, do I have to explain why I'm not going to the wedding, but I can go to the reception? That seems almost ruder. I'm not sure she'd change her plans from a letter (not really a letter more like a longer than usual facebook message) but idk at least she'd know where I stand. Gar why do I smell of elderberries so bad at life?! I was great at the board game.

    yikes can't you all secede already?
  7. Ice_nine added a post in a topic: question about organ donation   

    that's pretty scary (about not carefully verifying brain death), I'm an organ donor but maybe I'll change that! Unless you want a kidney. I can give you one of those. Or maybe a lung, but I like taking real deep breaths so you'll need to at least buy me something real nice.
  8. Ice_nine added a post in a topic: Father Isaac Mary Relyea   

    ​did he really say these things? If so can a supporter of this priest please explain how these things are correct? Because if that's the case, especially for the first one, I am screeeeeeeeeeeeeewed.

    so here's the deal I have a friend who is a former Catholic. Now she's like one of those real jump-for-jesus types, some protestant/evangelical or other. We're fairly close but not best friends. I wasn't sure I'd get an invite because we live far apart and she's spending mad $$$$ so I didn't know if I'd make the cut (which I was kind of relieved because I'm a coward and that way I wouldn't need to explain any objections, which is great for me since I'm a coward. Anyhow she asked me and I said yeah I would go and then I started making plans to split a hotel with another mutual friend. So I'd feel like a real flake for backing out now. It happened kind of quickly and I probably didn't answer before really thinking it through.
    I know what the catechism says about scandal and stuff but I Really don't think that my presence or absence would make much of a statement either way, other than maybe I'm a flake for not going after I said I would. In any case I assumed that since this person has more or less renounced the Catholic faith that the marriage would be at least valid, if illicit, but apparently unless you formally separate yourself from the church in writing you are stil bound to canon law (which seems kind of silly to me because why would someone who has renounced the faith care about what canon law says?) but anyway . . . I'm not sure what to do. I considered maybe writing her and maybe saying "hey here's what I think you should do, just writing this out of concern etc." that way she'd know I don't "approve" but I could still go to avoid straining the relationship. she might respect that, or maybe not who knows. The couple in question have not cohabitated and they've "waited" for marriage which is an idea I can get behind. In any case just need some advice from my friendly neighborhood phatmassers.
  10. Ice_nine added a post in a topic: Do you thing this song and video is sexist?   

    I think it's a terrible song and I'm embarrassed for you and anyone else who likes it
    why is it terrible? It's pandering, fraught with clichés and the music is uninspiring in every way and the woman's voice, which might be nice irl who knows, is at least mixed in a way that sounds terrible, just terrible.

  11. Ice_nine added a post in a topic: Support Archbishop Cordileone   

    maybe I'm a bad Christian but I have little sympathy for ceo's (there's about 5 or so listed in the signed) whinging about how they want a leader with "their values" wah wah wah. One should conform oneself to the church. For most it is not easy. There are many teachings I have struggled to accept and sort of still struggle with but alas I am just a finite person.
    These people want the church to change but don't even understand what the church is because it is NOT democratic society.
  12. Ice_nine added a post in a topic: grandmother cancer/surgery   

    My nana has breast cancer. She got a lumpectomy but she's going in for another surgery tomorrow because they didn't remove everything they needed to. Anyhow she's going under general anesthesia so I'm a little bit nervous because she is old. Any prayers are appreciated. Thank you!
  13. Ice_nine added a post in a topic: Sex in Heaven?   

    For in the resurrection they shall neither marry nor be married; but shall be as the angels of God in heaven.=/= no males and females.
    Am I the only one thrown by that statement?
  14. Ice_nine added a post in a topic: head transplant   

    ​what concerns if you don't mind me asking?
    also, a question for the room, if we're on a desert island and we're starving can I amputate my arm and eat it? Is that morally unethical? We gonna die if we don't eat something and I can definitely handle life without my left arm.

    Imagine going to sleep and waking up with someone else's body?!

    It's hard knowing that you used to be a better person. Anyone feel me?

    1. Era Might

      Traveler, there is no road, the road is made by walking.

    2. nunsense

      It's hard to judge yourself. Focus on loving God and let Him worry about the details.

  2. Ice_nine

    Got laid off from my temp job. Not a big deal because the job sucked, but Prayers to St. Joseph for employment!

    1. BarbaraTherese

      Prayers to St Joseph The Worker for you,Ice_nine. Hope happy employment will come very soon!

    2. Ice_nine

      thanks woman!

      Woo! amesome! Congrats!

  4. Ice_nine

    I've been off facebook since February. Since then I've lost most contact with my internet folks. Kinda want to go back even though I know it's a giant drain on time/privacy invasion.

      I'm wavering about fb a wee bit...thinking about having one just to connect with pholk who play the same games I do...I may change my mind, but I don't trust fb any further than I can throw it... :|

    3. Credo in Deum

      I disconnected facebook for a while and then came back. You're correct on the drain and invasion of privacy. I hardly put any of my personal information on Facebook, including my name.

    4. Ice_nine

      not even your name? haha that's smart. I have an account that I use to follow some bands and companies and linked to other random things but I don't really use it for "social media."

  5. Ice_nine

      Call somebody - maybe the emergency room. I've heard heart attacks described similarly.

    Going to a Spanish mass, because sometimes it's good to not understand what the hell anyone around you is saying.

      But the homily???

      En Espanol?

    2. Seven77

      sometimes its best not to understand the homily either...

  14. Ice_nine

    don't care about things really

    1. CatholicsAreKewl

      psychopaths unite!

    2. Tab'le De'Bah-Rye

      For i think we as chrstians are kind of called to be psychopaths, to have thick skin and not let any but God into the deepest depths of our hearts.f we let to much in the heart becomes a junkyard with no room for Jesus to live in. :)

    1. Light and Truth

      Boo who?

  18. Ice_nine

    *sigh* wish I could just say "I need someone to talk to," but I'm more in the market for a mind-reader.

    1. Light and Truth

      My psychic powers are a bit low right now, but I am sensing that someone needs a hug. *hug*

    We are not crabs in a bucket. We should stop acting like it tho.

      I "LOVE" that comment! I am going to hang onto that one!

    You might want to peruse the CDF document condemning same sex unions, which simultaneously speaks of the duty of the state "to promote and defend marriage as an institution essential to the common good."
