Your use of English is cumbersome and never clear, which is probably because you are double minded. Perhaps you should go to a junior college and take a course in 90's Basic English Composition until you are able to take 100's level English expository writing, before you try narrative. The key is simple declarative sentences without subordinate clauses. Try Action comics they can really help.

Your desire to put words in my mouth has nothing to do with the alleged cumbersomness of my English usage.  I never said, for example, that I would want to push you down the stairs in a wheelchair.

I'm sorry you're having such a bad time of it, but you're not being very constructive.  If I didn't know better, I'd think you knew me personally and had some kind of beef completely apart from this medium.

Is this sort of quibbling really going bring us closer to our last end? I do this sort of nonsense too sometimes, but it's really not very productive and sets a less than good example for all those on the internet who could be reading our posts. Needlessly criticizing each other's English and lauding our test scores over one another is a bit childish. Come on, guys. This is Fisheaters! This isn't CatholicAnswers forum.

Berlusconi has been criticized by other priests as causing a scandal:

The Telegraph Wrote:London, Apr 22 (ANI): The Catholic church has accused Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi of committing "sacrilege" by taking communion despite having divorced his first wife and being on the verge of second divorce.



The Roman Catholic Church prohibits divorcees who remarry from taking communion.


However, Berlusconi was accorded the privilege at the funeral of a well-known Italian television celebrity in Milan.

But, the leverage for the Italian premier has set off a heated debate between Catholic figures across Italy, with a priest in Genoa calling it a scandal.

"Berlusconi has committed sacrilege in the light of the fact that he is divorced and is in the process of getting divorced again," the Telegraph quoted Father Paolo Farinella as saying.

He accused the Church of making one rule for the rich and famous and another for ordinary Catholics.

A former bishop from the southern region of Puglia, Monsignor Giuseppe Casale, said the 73-year-old premier should not be permitted to take communion because he had shown himself not to be "coherently Christian" with his behaviour.

Not only are Italian priests criticizing hiim, but others are wondering about his behavior as well.  It wouldn't be too much to expect a public statement and some demonstration of contrition to the people who are scandalized by this.

The most positive thing that's been said so far is that a Bishop hopes that Berlusconi would be in a state of sanctifying grace....
