UN vs. Catholic Church

Here is a very brief list in response to this Drudge headline:

UN tells Catholic church to change teachings on abortion...

  • Roman Empire
  • Byzantine Empire
  • The Caliphate
  • The Ottoman Empire
  • The First, Second, and Third Reichs
  • The Mongolian Empire
  • The Holy Roman Empire
  • The Tang Dynasty
  • The Ming Dynasty
  • The Qing Dynasty
  • The British Empire
  • The Abbasid Caliphate (750-1258)
  • The Sharif of Mecca (967-1925)
  • The U.S.S.R

Et cetera….

What is that a list of? Five minutes of double checking dates of empires of institutions that the Catholic Church has outlived…. Rome is sort of cheating since it pre-dates the Pope, but still…

Anyway, I don’t think anyone (I suspect this includes the current Pope) believes that the Catholic Church doesn’t need cleaning up; however, the hubris of the UN is almost hilarious.

  1. Yet again, here we have a challenge set in front of the Catholic Church. I would like justice, alright, but asking the Catholic Church to change its teachings is kind of…(okay, I’ll be blunt here)…stupid…and really prideful. The Holy See isn’t the one that makes the laws of the Catholic Church. It is God that makes those laws, and the officials of the Church are the instruments in implementing those laws. Seeing how the UN is acting here…it’s sad, really. Justice should be dealt, sure, but trying to make someone conform to a culture against that someone’s morality…that’s not even respectful anymore. I hope the UN would see the error of its ways and change, and I hope the Holy See and the rest of the Catholic Church would stand strong and patient in the midst of these trials.

  2. Not being a *Roman* Catholic (maybe you might call me a “Wittenberger Catholic?”), I can’t say that I think they are totally correct and Scriptural in all their doctrine. Nevertheless, on such basic issues of human sexuality, marriage and procreation (as opposed to anti-creation, aka abortion), Scripture (and natural law) are decidedly in Rome’s favor.

  3. Man, the Catholic Church in America has done a ton to rectify the situation with pedophile priests. The fact that other particular Churches may not have been as proactive cannot be blamed on the pope.
