      I have no idea what that has to do with the Basilica block party. But if you know then tell us. Tells how you know too. Did you write a letter to the bishop and to the party organisers? Have they replied yet?

      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Of course you know the connection. Don't play dumb. This is your church...

      Just one more thought before I leave this thread, is it not said in the bible that the treasure of the wicked is laid up for the righteous?
      Isaiah 40:31

      I often wondered about the church beer gardens I've seen at festivals. In the evening hours you can see many drunks under those tents and I wonder if that is something that should be condoned by a church just to make money?

      Remember Jesus warning: 37 Don’t be a judge of others and you will not be judged; do not condemn and you will not be condemned; forgive and you will be forgiven; 38 give and it will be given to you, and you will receive in your sack good measure, pressed down, full and running over. For the measure you give will be the measure you receive back.

      Just saying.

      Is someone judging someone's salvation? Or is it a caution against promotion of what could potentially lead to sinful behavior?

      Read what Jesus said again, there's no caveat abut salvation in it. It says 37 Don’t be a judge of others and you will not be judged; do not condemn and you will not be condemned; forgive and you will be forgiven; 38 give and it will be given to you, and you will receive in your sack good measure, pressed down, full and running over.

      Do you feel condemned, MC?

      I didn't find this description on the website lol
      Nothing wrong with raising money for a church with live music and God forbid they drink a few beers.
      Jesus certainly didnt go around changing water to wine, no that would be abuse and he definitely didnt say to drink in remembrance of him.
      Btw how much is too much before becoming a drunkard?
      I couldnt find any video of the homosexual witch orgies you spoke of... if you can backup your crude description with evidence then please share.
