    The best Catholics are the one's who show up, give money, and never actually read their Bible.

    That's an issue in the whole Church, not just the Catholics. There are a lot of folks who say they are Christian who don't know squat about what that entails.

    To all y'all taking the obligatory "the church hates education, wants stupid believers" pot shots, notice the specific mention of the present day sorry excuse for education that we get, not a generalization of all education.
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.

    A Catholic that doesn't study the Bible and Catholic beliefs is...not a Catholic. Even to be confirmed in the church, children are expected to learn the basics. Anyone who stops there has only a baby-education...sort of like the drop-outs from public schools in DC. Ignorant is ignorant, regardless of the subject.

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.
