Speaking to African bishops at the Vatican, the Pope described HIV/Aids in Africa as a "cruel epidemic".

But he told them: "The traditional teaching of the church has proven to be the only failsafe way to prevent the spread of HIV/Aids."

The only thing more cruel than Africa's AIDS epidemic is a bunch of virgins trying to counsel people on sexuality.

Nebraska's "Safe Haven" Law Backfires

Posted by Pile (8696 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[Bad Parents]
Nebraska's safe haven law was intended to allow parents to hand over an infant anonymously to a hospital without being prosecuted, presumably as a way to be "pro life" and discourage abortions.

Unfortunately things didn't work out the way lawmakers planned. Of the 34 children who have been dropped off at hospitals, officials said, not one has been an infant.

All but six have been older than 10, according to a Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services analysis. Now lawmakers are rushing to change the law while parents are rushing to Nebraska to drop their kids off before the law changes.

Pope Benedict XVI condemned unbridled “pagan” passion for power, possessions and money as a modern-day plague Saturday as he led more than a quarter of a million Catholics in an outdoor Mass in Paris, before retreating to his private limo, private jet and gold-plated vestments with jewel-encrusted hat, in his monolithic mansion institution where upon he contemplated how best to keep people with AIDS from being able to use condoms.

McCain Picks Alaskan Governor As Running Mate

By now, everybody has heard the various rumors... this pro-life, pro-abstinence conservative moral crusader, Sarah Palin is the GOP VP candidate. Who apparently has a 17 year old daughter who is 5 months pregnant out of wedlock, who also has a 4 month old baby with Downs Syndrome she apparently thinks won't mind her diversion as Vice President.

It makes you wonder if the GOP is testing the degree to which they can foist just about any idea upon the populace and make it swim...

Then again, we here at BSAlert think this is an ingenious plan to divert criticism away from John McSame during the election process.

Kenneth Copeland Says Only God Can See His Financial Records

Posted by Pile (10807 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


[Get-Rich-Quick]
Last fall, Senator Charles Grassley on the Senate Finance Committee, began probing the finances of six TV evangelists whose lifestyles include mansions, Rolls-Royces, and private jets, all paid for out of church funds. Grassley told BBC, “I would not contribute to an organization that is Christian and evangelical with money being wasted that way.”

While some have cooperated, some have not, going to far as to suggest their financial records belong to "God."

Funny thing, according to the bible (Luke 20:25), Jesus disagrees.

Move over Scientology.... the Wikimedia Foundation has received a copyright infringement claim from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, widely known as the Mormon Church or LDS Church, in reference to documents leaked entitled "Copy of handbook for leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints".

The Wikinews article, originally published on April 19, described material in the Church Handbook of Instructions. The work is a two-volume book of policies and is a guide for leaders of the Mormon Church. "...the book is strictly confidential among the Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, aka LDS in short form) bishops and stake presidents and it reveals the procedure of handling confidential matters related to tithing payment, excommunication, baptism and doctrine teaching (indoctrination)."

Vatican Says Believing In Space Aliens Is OK

[Environment]
The Vatican's chief astronomer says that believing in aliens does not contradict faith in God.

The Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, the Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory, said that the vastness of the universe means it is possible there could be other forms of life outside Earth, even intelligent ones.

In an interview published Tuesday by Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Funes said that such a notion "doesn't contradict our faith" because aliens would still be God's creatures.

No mention was made by Funes regarding upon which day God made aliens or space ships.
