Default No Fun on Sundays?

I'm not religious myself, so this doesn't really affect me. But I found this interesting. Catholics out there should listen up.

Basically, the Pope said that Sundays shouldn't be for entertainment or sports, or whatever is fun, it should be a day for God.
"When Sunday loses its fundamental meaning and becomes subordinate to a secular concept of 'weekend' dominated by such things as entertainment and sport, people stay locked within a horizon so narrow that they can no longer see the heavens," the pontiff said in a speech to Australian bishops on Friday. (Source: http://edition.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/eu...pe.sport.reut/ )

That's a little extreme I think. I know, people back in the old days respect Sundays more than Catholics do now, but no sports on Sundays? No movies? No TV? No entertainment? I don't see any harm of being faithful and having fun at the same time, aren't we suppose to enjoy life? I don't know, the weekend is already short as it is, I couldn't stand losing my Sunday.

The pope is stupid. We need to relax mostly us kids because we never have anytime to ourselves. Sure we need to have god in our life but we need to have a life to begin with. I don't think that god wants anyone to be uptight for thier entire life.

Well, it's hard to say what God really wanted. That's why there's so many interpretations on how to follow the God's word, how to the follow the Bible and all. The Pope is generally well respected by a lot of people around the world, I don't think many people will change their ways on Sundays because of the Pope's view on this though.

I'm a Christian and I watch TV, play outside, go places, and do a lot of other junk. I agree with Marco. What is the point of life if you don't try to enjoy it? :confused2

I agree with you except for the pope is not realy stupid. He just thinks strongly about religion. But I never lose my sunday over it. On suday I go to church most of the time and spend the rest of my 10-12 hours doing whatever I have time to do.

The Lord set Sunday aside for no labor, and I believe that doesn't involve no fun as well. Of course, this doesn't mean he's going to punish those who have jobs, and have to work on Sundays. He gave us that day as a rest from the rest of the week, and as a monument of when he rested on the seventh day after creating Earth and everything. I am a die-hard Christian myself, and that is what I believe. Sunday wasn't meant for you to do nothing at all, it was meant to be set aside as a day of rest from work and labor.

Correct TT. The 7th day he rested,after those other days he had to work. ON Sunday, most Catholics or Chrstians go to Church to celebrate and Reflect on God's resting. I think. :P

I agree with Dark Pikachu. I go to Church. I get done with Church and go home. Then I play videogames, I go on the computer, or I watch sports like Football or Baseball.

The Lord said that the seventh day is for rest, not sitting home doing nothing but staring at your dark TV screen. Having no particular religion, I use my Sunday for whatever I need to, for I'm not told that no fun is good and that I shouldn't work or do what I like on Sunday. I'm kind of echoing what TT said, because that's how I feel on this matter.

In a way he is stupid because he tries to make it like it's his way or no way. That just my statement though so no one please take offense.



BTW: Catholics this has nothing to do with anyone except bad preists. If you watch the news or know the catholic religon you'll know that it's not right for a preist to marry. So what do they do? Rape little boys and girls. If you watch the news you'll know that what i'm saying is true. This is just a reason why I don't trust the pope neither catholic preists.


Again please no one take offense.

Meh, I agree with you Marco. The pope makes it sound like that and the stupid Catholic priests that rape children are WAY to deperate.

Please no one take offense.
