    O come on Broadsheet. Apologetics (reasoned arguments in justification of something) is a wonderful thing for the church to embrace. Why not highlight these in a positive, rather than a cynical way?

        In fairness, I doubt yer one or anyone going to that yoke will have raped too many kids.

          1. MoyestWithExcitement

            Ah yeah, if they’re discussing how to positively spin child abuse then I shall *prey* (God, I’m so FUPPING funny) they die alone. Otherwise it’s just a bunch of kooks having a private meeting to discuss kooky things. No worse than a star trek convention.

          2. MoyestWithExcitement

            I wish to share in your joke but alas, I’m unaware of the definition of P’tach. Is that star trek speak?

            Yeah. I just called you a b*stard.
            *more delighted sniggers*

            Ah. Kingon, I’m guessing. I was quite fascinated by Commander Warf as a young lad. No idea why he wasn’t in that film version last year. Him and Chewy would make a great team.

          5. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

            The Benedict Cumberbatch one? Worf appears later in the Star Trek continuum, so would’ve had no part to play in it.

          6. MoyestWithExcitement

            OK. That was a joke that didn’t land. Or it did and I’ve been bested.

          7. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

            No, that totally flew over my head.
            But let’s pretend I bested you.
            *drops mic*

      There is no positive way to highlight this boot camp. It will be just a camp for further entrenching people in beliefs they already hold. No one else will attend. As for justification, it never concerned the church before so why would they break the habit of many lifetimes? Speaking of wonderful things for the church to embrace, how about the 21st century? That’d be a start!

        1. Gah!

          Indeed, vanadium, I admit my views on the Catholic church are very negative but I would be willing to review them if appropriate evidence was provided. Not necessarily saying I’d change my opinion, though! I love a snug trench!

        Here Gah, why don’t you hook up with Owen and his stag party mates and go along and report back? You have me genuinely intrigued now.

        1. Owen

          That stag’s going to be great!! You fancy the trip hoop? All welcome!

          An intriguing conversation of sole searching followed by an evening of heavy drinking, finger blasting, and regret. True unleashed Catholicism at it best!

          1. Spaghetti Hoop

            Would love to. Never been on a stag. Maybe BYOB though as the oul altar wine is gank.

      It’s just… non-one regards being ‘an apologist’ for anything as a good thing. It’s a disparaging term – so using it themselves suggests they aren’t very good at it. Unless it’s supposed to indicate that they are going to start actually apologising for stuff. Of course there could also be some sort of slightly esoteric Catholic usage at work here with which I am unfamiliar.

  2. Owen

    I love the header: “The only life worth living is a life worth dying for”

    Sounds like the start of Burce Willis movie.

    Why didn’t God just imprison Lucifer and the rebel angels in Heaven instead of setting them up with their own kingdom in Hell? We could have avoided the whole evil vs good thing altogether and just had good. Teach them to answer that one.

    The ehh best little country in the world, with the ehh, best little catholics in the world.
    West of the Vatican that be.
    Holier then the pope and more religious than Jesus.
