As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Luther to be portrayed on RCC postage stamps?

    This comes from a legitimate news source so it can't be immediately dismissed as "fake", but it still seems pretty incredulous. Is it a true story, and what does it say about changes in RCC dogma in the near future?

      Putting on the act amongst outsiders is a vital part of being a Catholic or cultist. Appearance is waaaaaaaay more important than substance in Roman Catholicism, which is quite ironic when you think about it.

        Did a little research on Italian blogs, and YES, they are, but it is not flattering:

        It commemorates 500 years of the "pseudo-reformation" of Martin Luther.

        This crucifix is for us a book with hieroglyphics of might and power, to enable us to read in a second, at one glance, what it otherwise would take us five minutes to read in the Bible. We have often instructed poor slaves who cannot read. We have told them what Jesus has done for them, arid shown them the crucifix, and thus appealed to their eyes and ears in far less time than by any other method." ~ Rt. Rev. John Timon, Prefect to the Republic of Texas

            That's sort of witty I guess, but Frank has shown a much more conciliatory tone toward Lutherans anyhow. The RCC has changed its dogmas quite a bit since the Luther-Eck debates,

                so it is, I thought someone at the Vatican had really gotten brave.

                I am concerned by the news, but will wait to see.

                  I find the interactions with Father Don over on CA... fascinating. He's basically saying that Roman Catholics who slander Luther and don't join in ecumenism are not being obedient to Rome: He states, " a dicastery can issue directives that are, absolutely, binding; they are dispositive." Favorite comment from Father Don so far on this (in response to a fellow Roman Catholic): "Well, then all you are left with is your opinion. As a priest and a theologian, such uninformed opinions have neither value nor interest."

                  Fascinating.

                    Sounds like the Magisterium is pursuing a policy of ecumenism, if the Luther stamp is already in the works, can a Calvin stamp and a Knox stamp be that far down the road for the RCC Post Office?

                        I haven't logged in at CA for quite some time but you are right about Father Don, fascinating, I used to follow his posts, really admire and respect the man. Maybe it's time to log in at CA and start following his posts again.

                            Mutual dialogue, understanding, forgiveness is a worthy pursuit no matter what area of life: be it theology or going to the grocery store. This though is not in contradiction to holding fast to what one believes. I can disagree with you without slandering you. In fact, I asked a few questions of something you posted on another thread. There was nothing in my questions intended to gouge out your eyes.
