Where the Church and I stand on opposite sides of the Fence

OK, "The Church", let me get a few things straight. You think it is immoral to teach people how to protect themselves and prevent multiple pregnancies in a nation with an unbearable population growth problem?

...look, I know we don't always see eye to eye on everything, and we accept one another anyway in the name of the Lord, but what in the Sam Hill are you thinking?!?

The Roman Catholic church has deemed it "immoral" to "establish a national family planning program [in the Philippines] that would include sex education and advice on birth control".

Yeah, you're right. It is much more moral to allow the population to grow out of control, causing thousands of children to starve and to resort to seedy means to earning.

Way to go, "The Church". Thanks for making us all look bad... again.

How absolutely random - someone (who wisely chose to remain anonymous) left a comment (that I deleted) about how ignorant I was on this topic, and that I should "quit spouting off at the mouth on subjects [I] have no education in."
Hmm... well, first of all, this person obviously does not know me personally. They probably do not realize that I am a Christian. But the most interesting part to me is that "spouting off" is kind of the purpose of a blog... right?

Of course you deleted the comment why would you allow anyone to challenge you? Now you have gone from ignorant to stupid. Ignorant basically means you are not educated on a subject...Stupid means that you think you are.

You must be about 16 and in high school English.

I am sorry you do not wish to engage in some intellectual dialouge. I have read most of your blog and find it interesting.

If you have read "most of my blog", then why would you think I was 16 years old?
If you don't mind my asking, how old are you?
And please, feel free to challenge me. I am using the traditional definition, by the way. You seem to think it means "berate".
