Old testament apocrypha is in the Catholic.  KJV has it and it's labeled as such.  Some Catholic bibles call it deuterocanonical texts - depends on what flavor Catholic (east, west, coptic).

Grew up catholic, got better, then got random chick tracts given to me saying said books is undermining the truthiness of the bible or something.  Yet he has a hard on for the KJV despite it having it.

Catholics are weird about women in church.  The priest was shot in my hometown because some guy claiming to be elijah didn't want women reading the bible, yet the pope then said they could.  New pope is trying to shame U.S. nuns because they aren't focused on the gays and think birth control is nifty. 

It's all about control and numbers really.  The ancient societies where women had more power have less children, even before good methods of birth control.  Sort of holds true today.

Also, the Apocrypha deals pretty extensively with the role of women in society, and the people debating it come to the conclusion that women should have equality in men in all social rights and responsibilities.

The Catholic church isn't a big fan of the Apocrypha, and for some reason it does not appear in their bible, though it appears in almost every other major sect's bibles.  The KJV, for example, includes it.

I think you have sects reversed.  They kept it for the whole praying for the dead part so that they can explain purgatory.

*Edit: just learned there are many books called apocrypha, depends which one you want*

Hello, noob here.

I guess the biggest reason why I'm here is my company switched to linux and it had a fish on it that told me the ddate.  Having not read the Principia in awhile, I wandered into this site.

Wasn't expecting to find more books and newsletters and such.  Nice surprise.

Other info about me, I went to school for design of wastewater systems, The Good Reverend Roger's analogy made me grin.

Why, thank you.  We are in fact the settling pond of the interbutt supermarket.

There are literally thousands of rants, newsletters, and stories down in the muck, mostly in Apple Talk (currently renamed after the recent butthurt, it's the second forum down on the list), Think For Yourself, Schmuck, and Or Kill Me.  Horrorology has some good stuff too, but it's a little content-specific.

When I approved your account, I read Mome as Momo, and I damn near shat myself (Momo was one of Enrico's relatives who caused a lot of problems here until she died IRL from stepping on a bear).

Did the bear like it?
