    It’s very on brand for someone who claims to be a Christian who loves the Bible except for the turn the other cheek and forgiveness bullshit.

    On brand alert! Hill to die on incoming.

    I disagree with a few things. I believe people are born gay, its not a choice. I dont believe in turn the other cheek. However, there are instances where Catholicism is good with killing- Arch Angels, soldiers defending others in battle.

    Turn the other cheek and forgiveness are the core of the teachings of Jesus Christ, not sure how someone can consider themselves a Christian if they don’t believe in those things.

    Two quick points:

    The Catholic Church’s social teachings are here:
    http://www.usccb.org/beliefs-and-te.../seven-themes-of-catholic-social-teaching.cfm

    ...And it’s everything that you’d expect from an organization that actually follows the teachings of Christ - protect the planet, care for the poor, workers rights (right to fair wages, right to unionize), pro globalism, no racism, no war, no abortion, no death penalty, etc.

    Second, if the pope ever came out and said that all Catholics should vote for X, I would listen to him. (And he’d probably tell us to vote for Bernie.)

    This is why as a a person who doesn't ascribe to faith I have my kid in Catholic school. It's a solid set of fundamentals. Abortion I quibble with but the fact that in preschool she is learning about all of the other stuff, the most recent being protecting the planet is great. She's four and I accidentally dropped a bottle out of the car and she noticed, she reminded me to pick it up, that made me happy.

    Does anyone else remember when W met with the Pope at his private boy molestation mansion when W was deciding to fund embryonic stem cell research, and Pope John Paul II was making public statements calling for the ban?

    JP2 also discussed foreign policy with W.

    This is a very very weird take. In my anecdotal experience my aunt/uncle wasted a lot of money putting their seven failkids through the local catholic parochial (2019-2020 non-catholic high school tuition cost is $9600) school system and my cousins are now republican shitheads that barely achieved any kind of notable higher ed success. The catholic school scored a few points higher on standardized tests compared to my public school, but the catholic school picks their students and they sure as hell aren't getting kids from broken/impoverished homes.

    That certainly happens. She is doing and maybe K there, then I'm moving her to public school for that very reason, but the lesson plans they use for kids her age are really good. Also it's cheaper than the only other pre-k which is a Montessori school people seem to hate.

    Part of it is here it's a weird dynamic. Her school only goes Pre-k through 6 Then she'll get dumped into public school unless I take her across state lines to St. Joe (Where Pete went) and I have no intent on that, so she's going public no matter what. I am shocked at the diversity in her school though which I was worried about, so that's cool.

    We definitely had shitty right wing racists at my catholic HS. We also had amazingly empathetic kids who went on to become nuns and are saving refugee children right now. In general, though, the school wasn’t diverse enough for me.

    That’s the entire church, though. As an adult, I’m active in my parish and diocese and Ive met amazingly empathetic people and shitty right wing racists. I sat in on a mass where the priest delivered a homily that may as well have been written by Fox News.

    I went to a catholic school and came out of it an ignorant privileged faux-intellectual Republican who said things like, "I like Obama I just don't agree with his policies" while knowing literally nothing about his policies.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/me...2020-candidates-fundraising-reports-n994926?=

    Here are some of our top takeaways:
    1. Among the Dems, there’s Sanders, O’Rourke and then everyone else: We knew from early totals that Sanders and O’Rourke had put up big numbers, but the latest breakdowns show how those engines chugged along at a rate that far outpaced their rivals. Sanders raised about $445k in contributions per day during the 41 days he was in the race, and O’Rourke hit about $520k a day over 18 days. The next closest was Kamala Harris, who pulled in about $172k for every day she was in.
    2. Warren is making a big gamble on a big operation: Elizabeth Warren has spent the most of any Democratic candidate, at $5.3 million in the 90 days she’s been in the race. By our count, she’s shelled out about $1.2 million on 161 staff salaries, suggesting that she’s planning to outhustle other contenders with a lot of resources on the ground early. She’s still got a big chunk of money in the bank from her $10m+ transfer from her Senate campaign, but that high spending rate meant that she burned through more than 85 percent of her Q1 contributions. The question is: How long is that spending rate sustainable?
    3. Team U.S. Senate is staying above water — mostly because of their past campaign nest eggs: Of the senators running for president, all moved at least some reserves from their Senate accounts over to their 2020 war chest. But for Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren, those were very substantial investments — ranging from about a third of their topline fundraising total (for Booker) up to three-quarters (for Gillibrand). Those transfers give those candidates healthy-looking war chests, but it’s not because of great outside fundraising prowess. The exception, by the way, is Kamala Harris, who transferred about $1.2 million from her Senate campaign but raised an additional $12 million in other contributions.
    4. Buttigieg’s lean campaign: It’s striking how Buttigieg’s fundraising took off as he gained name ID and buzz. He raised just $72,000 in itemized donations (donations of $200 or more) on Jan. 23, the day he announced his exploratory committee, compared with the million+ hauls of some of his competitors on their announcement days. (Of course, Buttigieg went on to raise more than $7 million more.) He’s also spending very little so far, with a burn rate of under 10 percent and just about $200k spent on payroll and consulting. That means that he’s got plenty left in the bank to compete on a Tier One/Tier Two level, but will have to start growing out his organization to compete on the ground.

    It’s especially damning when combined with Bernie’s meager charitable contributions when he was making a million/year.

    A lot of hype about being for the people, but when you get a look at their financials, Beto and Bernie are as money hungry as every other American, despite what they preach.
