As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. 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.

  • Evangelicals Rejoice as Another Catholic is Nominated to the Supreme Court

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.b3b6cf14eae8

    For millions of evangelical Christians, President Trump’s announcement Monday night was the vision they held in their heads as they stepped into the polling booth almost two years ago: a Republican president, filling the Supreme Court with more conservative justices who might drastically curtail access to legal abortion and advance other conservative Christian priorities.

    Assuming Kavanaugh is confirmed, the court would remain six Catholics (though one now attending the Episcopal Church) and three Jews.

    I guess this story puts the lie to the idea that evangelicals are somehow "anti-catholic" in the least, and are willing to judge the Roman Catholic Rank and File by a fair measure and not show any bigotry at all.

      I will take what I can get. If it a catholic, so be it. If it's a Jew, so be it. But if being catholic is a sign of being for God, why are there so many catholics on the court and so many anti-God laws allowed to pass the SC?

          I have already seen where some Evangelicals are suspicious that he went to a Jesuit high school. Rabid anti-Catholic Evangelicals and anti-Catholic Leftists are on the same page on this one.

            I doubt that would be a problem, Patrick J Buchanan went to a Jesuit run high school as well as college, and a lot of evangelicals supported him

              That's good. Maybe there is still hope.

                  They are not sure what narrative they want to stick with. They make it up as they go.

                    Catholics for some reason, feel secure knowing that at lest they will be back stabbed by their catholic brethren.
