The Catholic bishops of England, Wales and Scotland are warning their five million worshippers, as well as any others drawn to the study of scripture, that they should not expect “total accuracy” from the Bible. [more]
This is quite confusing!!



Of anyone to say the bible is BS,YOU WOULDNT THINK A CHURCH WOULD SAY IT!

Maybe they should tell them not to take the words of the Bible so literally. You tend to do silly things whilst taking such an approach.

This is an AMAZING advancement for the Catholic Church.



The article doesn't state what the attitude of the Vatican is on the issue.



First time in many years I've had something positive to say about the Catholic Church.

i think there is a significant difference between "not totally accurate" and "bullshit". with no information and making wild and unfounded assumptions, my guess is this was aimed at conceeding the inaccuracy of the book of Genesis and accepting evolution. i dont think the church will suddenly have a change of heart about much else.

The Donation of Constantine grants to the See of Rome dominion over all earthly thrones of Europe, a document made by that Roman emperor after his conversion to Christianity in return for being cured from leprosy. But in 1440, anachronisms in the document prove that it was really a fraud written around 752 AD, during the reign of and under orders of Pope Stephen II.

Yes, the Donation of Constantine is bullshit. No doubt.

NO - it's from an Onion-like site.

It's a made-up news story.
