    LOL. Those Catholic friends of mine are priests. I worked at a Catholic church rectory for a few years and was privy to have discussions w/them on such subjects. If they were wrong, then I guess I can see why others might not always be right regarding church doctrine. Peace back atcha.

    I just want to say that my question was an honest one, necessary to answer hers.

    I am not looking for a fight, like I am usually accused these days.

    She may have just forgotten and not checked back in yet to see these posts. We did get off topic for a while w/our discussion of faith.

    That's not what I was talking about. I just wanted to make sure that Blue's comment did not change the tone here.

    I consider "Faith" and "Dogma" to be two different things. To me, "faith" is the ability to accept the existence of something non-quantifiable, such as God. "Dogma" is all the baggage various organized religions use to control human beings. This is all STRICTLY my opinion.

    LOL, good one!

    I had to laugh at the coverage of the Queens hugging each other at Buckingham. Like who really cares if it was against protocol? That QE has a purse that I KNOW HAS a slab o' lead in it, If she was offended, she would have put it thru it paces.

    And anyways, WFG is it to drag an effing spouse to something like that?
    Give her a credit card and tell her you are going on a business meeting.
    MO took for aides with her-She is one of us.

    Dang did I just go incontinent?


    Hey,

    Can we work out a deal where France gets our FL, and the Queen-can we get Carla Brunei?

    We can split 'ownership' with Great Britain.

    No wonder she didn't show up....

    Politics suck, send her to Fashion Week in NYC!

  14. I have gone along on certain business trips of my husband and he has gone on certain business trips of mine -- mostly when spouses are included but sometimes just for fun.

    It is what partners do.
