The Catholic Church simply doesn’t have the influence in modern society to get such a law right, even if it wanted to. It will never happen anyway, but if it did, the world would have to change a LOT. It would be an extreme law, requiring a situation much different to that of today.

Adventists are strange things indeed. Experts in deceit. Experts at trolling. Experts at saying the same misconceptions over and over without listening to explanations as to why they are wrong. E.g. why we should all go and commit adultery and murder if we consider the sabbath obsolete. As if repeating the same silly argument will make people change their minds. Intelligent discussion with them is rare, and mostly impossible. I’ve never, never come across a religion with so much dishonesty in it, and with so much dishonesty displayed by its followers.

South Africa’s brief debut this year on the U.N. Security Council has tattered its reputation.

I don’t have the time now to blog properly on this – so instead I will simply post an e-mail I just sent off on the website of The Da Vinci Decode, a book written by Grenville Kent and Philip Rodionoff (Adventists) in Australia. It’s really worth reading – no matter what your denomination. It can be downloaded here.

On AllExperts, there are two useful articles on the Sabbath and soul sleep, by a Catholic responding to Adventist questions.
