heavenly sex before and after noah's ark....

heaven

Considering that in the 1980s, Pope John Paul II decreed there is no sexlife in the afterlife, one needs to ponder about the implications.



This has many philosophical and psychological layers, especially for Evangelicals, dog kennels and brothel owners, but Ezekiel tells us that: "Dry Bones Can Hurt No One”. Good man…

According to the pope, men will still have their willie, and women their boobs and whatever — male and female will still be different — in a new state of life, bliss forever. I can’t imagine...

I mention the dog kennels because the latest pope, Francis the First, told little kiddies that their dogs would go to heaven too. We still don’t know about cats. As far as Gus is concerned, cats are evil and trouble-makers. 

In regard to the human species, I suppose there won’t be any need for procreation after the final judgement. Imagine: Heaven is full forever. The wankers are in purgatory — and Hell? I don’t know, I’ve never been there. But some perverts might think of hell as sex forever-after, by the side of a hot fireplace, supervised by the ruler of vice himself. Cozy and fun as compared to bliss forever.

Understanding afterlife is a curly one:

Some main Jewish tribes did not believe in the afterlife. It was a bit like now: the spirit of elitism and of the aristocracy lives on. Few of the present rich actually believe in the afterlife, otherwise they would not accumulate wealth as if there was no tomorrow. Some of them might make noises about being “religious”, but that’s only a way to con the lower class that the rich are “like them", with just a bit more cash under the mattress — giving them the right to rule. 
This was the case in 300 BC. "In ancient Israel", says Harper's Bible Dictionary, "there was no belief in a life after"… According to Josephus, the Sadducees believed that there is no fate; God does not commit evil; man has the free choice of good or evil; the soul is not immortal; there is no afterlife; there are no rewards or penalties after death. So there. 
The Sadducees did not believe in resurrection of the dead, but believed at a pinch in the traditional Jewish concept of Sheol for those who had died…
And we have no clue as to what the dead glorious suicidal (and otherwise dangerous) warriors of Islam do with 27 virgins at the banquet of Allah. Or will they be like that bull which died for a night of debauchery (not butchery) spend with cows after having been locked by accident in the wrong paddock.

The Sadducees rejected the Oral Torah as proposed by the Pharisees. Rather, they saw the written Torah as the sole source of divine authority. 

The Sadducees reigned over Israel. Their aristocratic status was opposed by the Essenes. The Essenes challenged the authenticity of the ruling, blaming the downfall of ancient Israel and the siege of Jerusalem on the Sadducees' impiety. The Dead Sea Scrolls brand this elite as those who broke the covenant with God, and thus became targets for divine revenge. We wish.


Christopher West is not an average sex therapist. As a devout Catholic, he believes one of the most important ways we can get closer to God is through great sex.
"As Christians, we are desperately in need of a renewed vision of our sexuality," West has sermonized. "The union of man and woman itself is meant to be here on planet Earth an image, a foretaste, a little glimmer of the eternal ecstasy that awaits us in heaven.
Yes, but the pope says no sex in heaven. Crap! And what about LGBTi? Do they get a ticket to heaven?
"Catholicism, properly understood ... is one of the sexiest of the world's religions," said West. "But what do we mean by that statement? Catholicism is a very physical, very sensual religion. And indeed the authentic soundtrack for Christianity is a small book in the Old Testament called the Song of Songs. And what is it? It is glorious erotic love poetry.

Is that why priests have it off with kids?

CHAPTER 1

1 The Song of songs, which is Solomon’s.


Beloved


2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; 

for your love is better than wine. 

3 Your oils have a pleasing fragrance. 

Your name is oil poured out, 

therefore the virgins love you. 

4 Take me away with you. 

Let us hurry. 

The king has brought me into his rooms.


Friends


We will be glad and rejoice in you. 

We will praise your love more than wine!


Beloved


They are right to love you. 

5 I am dark, but lovely, 

you daughters of Jerusalem, 

like Kedar’s tents, 

like Solomon’s curtains. 

6 Don’t stare at me because I am dark, 

because the sun has scorched me. 

My mother’s sons were angry with me. 

They made me keeper of the vineyards. 

I haven’t kept my own vineyard. 

7 Tell me, you whom my soul loves, 

where you graze your flock, 

where you rest them at noon; 

For why should I be as one who is veiled 

beside the flocks of your companions?


Lover


8 If you don’t know, most beautiful among women, 

follow the tracks of the sheep. 

Graze your young goats beside the shepherds’ tents. 

9 I have compared you, my love, 

to a steed in Pharaoh’s chariots. 

10 Your cheeks are beautiful with earrings, 

your neck with strings of jewels. 

11 We will make you earrings of gold, 

with studs of silver.

conflict is inevitable...

It appears to be a widely accepted opinion in America that the long conflict between science and religion is at an end. It is often assumed that science and religion are two nonconflicting bodies of knowledge, equally valuable complementary paths leading toward an ultimate understanding of the world and our place in it. The conflicts of the past are said to be due to excessive zeal and misunderstanding on both sides. Peaceful coexistence and even a measure of syncretism are assumed to be possible as long as each concedes to the other’s authority in their separate worlds of knowledge: that of matter and facts for science, and that of the spirit and values for religion.

Let us be blunt. While it may appear open-minded, modest, and comforting to many, this conciliatory view is nonsense. Science and religion are diametrically opposed at their deepest philosophical levels. And, because the two worldviews make claims to the same intellectual territory — that of the origin of the universe and humankind’s relationship to it — conflict is inevitable.

Dry Bones Can Hurt No One ...

Amen to that!!

still some flesh on these bones...

Cardinal George Pell will be sentenced this morning in the Victorian County Court for sexually abusing two choirboys when he was Catholic archbishop of Melbourne in the 1990s.

Key points:
  • George Pell was found guilty of five charges of chid sex abuse, each carrying a penalty of up to 10 years' jail
  • The prosecutor said the offending warranted immediate imprisonment
  • Pell is appealing against his conviction on three grounds, including that the jury verdict was unreasonable

 

The man who was once Australia's most powerful Catholic has spent the past two weeks in custody waiting to be sentenced for one count of sexual penetration of a child under 16 and four counts of committing an indecent act with a child.

Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail.

Pell, 77, was found guilty by a jury last December of sexually abusing the choirboys after a Sunday mass in December 1996 and then assaulting one of them a second time two months later.

The first attack occurred just two months after Pell had announced the Melbourne Response, a scheme to deal with sexual abuse claims against clergy.

The trial had been suppressed to avoid potentially influencing jurors in a planned second trial involving a separate set of charges. But that case was dropped last month, paving the way for the suppression order to be lifted.

Pell will be sentenced by Chief Judge Peter Kidd at 10:00am.

The Chief Judge gave permission for the hearing to be broadcast live by media outlets.
