And the wgole thing is beside the point. This is supposed to be a CATHOLIC forum....yeah if im out at a party and someones playing excerpts from youtube on their phone im not running up and slapping it out of their hand screaming BLASPHEMER! I just dont think the film needs to be used in FE...it should be put on the index by vox. Lets not forget you posted your "satire" to MOCK folks who hold to the 3dd as at least possible. Some very good and intelligent holy catholics dont find 3dd to be silly at all.

I believe in the 3dd myself.  But I am also confident enough in my own skin to not be offended by a bit of mockery and I know that after all these years of thinking and warning that "something might be around the corner", I can do far more damage by being a pompous asshat who tells people to take the 3dd and 911 Truth seriously or "take the red pill instead of the blue".

Far more Catholic prophecies have failed than have delivered on cue and to the letter of the prophecy.

What comes when it comes almost certainly will not fit your version of events precisely anyway.  If you treat those people with a difference of opinion as though they are compromising with Satan, then you'd better be ready to explain why there are 2 days of darkness, or 40 days of dullness.

The ease at which you take offence and rant suggests to me you are weak-minded and your bravado is paper thin.  You're afraid to be wrong since it will shatter your ego.
First off your judgment is way off
...what I want you to understand is there are only 3 movies that send me into a rant...life of brian...last temptation of christ...and dogma...dogma being the least offensice....the ease at which your willing to insult and denigrate me for taking offense to an openly antichristian movie tells me your a man who has way to much money and is quite the british snob....of course I could be totally wrong.

You need to watch more movies if you are comparing those three.. You rant about a lot of stuff on here, you are one on the biggest ranters on the forum.  Read your own posts.

I don't see how it is "blasphemous" since the movie does not lampoon Christ and makes it clear that Brian is a figure mistaken for the messiah and not Jesus himself who is shown several times separately and in a respectful manner.  The film is more a statement about the confusion in organised religion and how people who supposedly believe the same thing fight with each other and are at each others' throats.  You only have to look at the forum here or at Cathinfo to see how true that is.  How quick we are to condemn and question people's faith.

Heretical sure, but blasphemous?  Not according to my dictionary definition since blasphemy means attacking the person of Jesus or denigrating his character.

If Catholics get their knickers in a twist every time someone makes a joke or deny that a film considered very funny by many intelligent people is funny at all then they just make themselves look like a bunch of timid ignorant hillbillies.

We would be better of writing satire about Richard Dawkins and Charles Darwin than ranting about them.  People like a giggle.

Look...you want to make this personal. I just told you that I find it a horribly offensive movie. And because I said so...that makes me...hmm lets see
Stupid...arrogent..a ranter..an unsophisticate...a person who doesnt see enough movies (which if you really new anything about me and movies you couldnt be more off the mark) but ok ggreg you stay on your high ground. Ill just twaddle back to my dark corner and drool and rant. Please continue...the world is a better place thanks to Monty python making us all laugh at christ.

Perhaps this disagreement can be boiled down to Ggreg being a limey and voxpop being a Pennsylvanian?

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.

Ggreg, you are in the UK.  Have you ever seen the book attributed to Mother Shipton?  I find it fascinating that there's demonstrable evidence of the alleged prophecies.  The book is extant and is at least four centuries old.  It refers to airplanes, submarines, television, et cetera.

Some of the prophecies were spot on.

Nope, I know about her but never seen evidence that the poem you refer to was known before the invention of those things.

I judge prophecy about whether it was correct or not.  That is the interesting thing about Fatima. October 13th was per announced.  There is no denying it.  The fact that 70,000 people turned up at the Cova tells you they were coming because it had been pre announced a sign would happen.

My understanding is that the actual book is still extant and you can view it.  See the links for photos.  They look authentically old enough to have predated the prophecies by several centuries.  The one is dated 1642.

I heard someone on the radio say Fatima has all the marks of a UFO event.  I almost drove off the road.  He was serious too.

This is why I rarely listen to the radio.

Just a comment.

These little episodes give me a real tickle. If you're listening to anything, tv or radio, they pop out all the time. They leave me bewildered and bemused. Like the reporter saying on the tv, that the NIH, CDC, and FDA had re-tested 130 controversial studies on condoms, and had found all of them accurate. The upshot is in no case do they prevent Any STD in heterosexuals. Then with a sorrowful straight face he looks directly into the camera and says but that's no  reason stop using them as they are the only way one can have safe sex.  Diabolical disorientation, in fact.
