    For me, their stubborn refusal to modernise their views (whether that's for the better or worse is another discussion altogether), is part of what is marginalising them, certainly in Europe.

    I know plenty of people who have faith, but would never touch the catholic church due to their bad reputation, firstly, and secondly for their habit of labelling things which most people now view as perfectly reasonable (again, whether that's a good thing or not is up for discussion) as sins.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting the church to suddenly buddy up with homosexuals, nor to announce that they love Divorces, but sadly, these things are now part and parcel of everyday life, and the church doesn't help itself by turning away people by labelling them sinners.

    Ah, so in other words you just don't put much faith in it?
    I don't really see how that's relevant, to "The Church should have modern views".

    But yeah. I would like to have an Israelic Bible that has been translated directly for those reasons exactly.

    As to the Bible, it's not even correct, in the sense that it doesn't tell the full story, only what the Catholic Church wanted us to see. The Catholic Church, when being founded, CHOSE which versions of Jesus' story to tell, and they chose the ones you see. There are OTHER versions of it which depict Jesus entirely differently, such as one written by Mary Magdalen (apologies if I misspelled her name) which depicts him as simply being a very good man. And that's ignoring the fact that there are several other holy books which could be as correct or incorrect as the Bible.

    Overall, I simply don't believe, but I would NEVER condemn you, or anyone else, for having faith and belief.

    You misunderstand me, I would never judge a person for having belief or on their sexuality or anything like such.

    All I'm saying is that, from my personal experience of the Catholic Church in Scotland, I wouldn't trust them with Ł5, let alone have any faith in what they preach.

    I do however, see value in a lot of their teachings. Their message essentially comes down to "be nice to each other", and that message is always applicable in a world where we are constantly d**ks to each other.

    I can understand that we're being conservative jerkwads in your opinion, but it's The Bible. We only get one copy of God's word ( theoretically. I personally question if it's been edited / snipped / pasted because of the Catholics, as well ). So asking us to change it is like asking us to defy God, in a way -- as if suddenly the world's stance is somehow better, or more important than his.
