If You Say It Isn't Prohibited, That Means You're For it?

As far as I'm aware, there is no formal prohibition in the Church against people holding hands during the "Our Father" section of the Mass. Does that then mean the Church endorses, or even encourages, hand holding during the "Our Father?" I'd like to think that most rational thinkig people would say no.

Extending the application of this reasoning to, say, torture, does coming to and making the legal conclusion that the Geneva Human Rights Accords do not protect members of al Qaeda mean that you endorse, or even encourage, torturing captured terrorists? You'd think most rational thinking people would say no, but even they have their spots of complete insanity. For someone like the normally sober Mark Shea, said spot of insanity has caused him to start recklessly accusing certain Republicans of advocating torture simply because they voted against attaching what is clearly a self-serving/showboating "anti-torture" amendment to a military appropiations bill.

Someone needs to get a grip, and it sure 'aint me.

OC Red Mass

When: October 19, 2005 @ 6pm
Where: Holy Family Cathedral - 566 South Glassell in the City of Orange
Limited or Unlimited?

Never thought I'd ever see the day where I'd get all emotionally worked up about a motion to reclassify a case from Limited to Unlimited Jurisdiction. In lawyerese speak, the former are cases allegedly valued at less than $25,000 while the latter are in excess of $25,000.
