    that is incoherent.
    what do you mean catholics push celibacy?
    I thought the joke was Catholics have tons of kids.
    Which is it, watash?

    Um, you have the wrong church.
    What do you know about an ancient babylon religion? Please substantiate your opinions.
    Secondly, the Catholic Church doesn’t condemn the study of other religions. In fact the catechism says the Church doesn’t reject anything from other religions what are true. The Church just, rightly, teaches, that she is the pillar and bulwark of truth, the deposit of faith.

    But in fact Catholics find it useful to know what other religions believe so that we can evangelize them and bring them to a saving faith. As for pursuing them for truth, that would be a wasted endeavor which could endanger the soul. A person, once knowing the truth of Catholicism, who leaves to worship a false religion, is in mortal sin. If they die in that state they go to hell.

    I just noticed your “name” – that explains it. you have forgotten history.

    @Heisendude
    I wasn’t attacking atheism, I was showing you your hypocrisy in YOUR attack.

    You said: It is simply amazing to me how people can still support the Catholic church. What does it take for people to not see the absolute and inexcusable evil that was committed by it?

    In light of 170,000,000 murders and 50,000,000 baby murders just last Century, you should ask yourself that very question.

    It was a defense, not an attack.
    We know atheists don’t like to be told they are hypocrites but you walked right into that one.

    You have to be joking.
    Have you heard about Obama?
    Have you heard about ISIS?

    @inthemuslimbrotherhood

    it’s pointless to move swiftly on the dead accused.
    many of the living accused are innocent and the Church would be foolish and evil if it erred on the side of politically correct guilt (regardless of actual guilt) rather than mercy and truth.

    I find this interesting because you anti-Catholics hate the Inquisitions which rooted out Catholics who were not true Catholics. Here we have priests who are not true Catholics and SAME PEOPLE, like you, want these fake Catholics to be put to death.

    Total hypocrites.

    At least you realize that indeed the Apostles blessed wine and bread and offered the Eucharist.

    Does your pastor?

  • [2] February 8, 2016 at 8:17am

    Well, our first Pope denied he knew Jesus, three times, and we forgave him because he was sorry and Jesus forgave him, but it doesn’t mean we believe every other Catholic should deny Jesus.

    So, no we don’t tolerate evil/sin, we teach to obey the commands and when you fail, repentance and forgiveness.

    What does your religion teach? Does sin matter? Do you have to repent? How are you Biblically forgiven when you don’t do it as Jesus instructed, as he sent certain men to go out and hear confessions so that they may forgive (or NOT forgive) those other people’s sins?

    As for punishments, do you know anything about the Inquisitions? Who was tried? Which was fairer, a secular court or a Church court? How many did the Spanish government put to death? 14 per year.

    Do you know what Protestants did to anyone who stayed with the Church Jesus founded instead of their new one?

    Two examples, perhaps useful to Pope Francis:
    He could do like anti-Catholic Queen Elizabeth, and have all who do the crime of practicing their Catholic faith drawn and quartered, or like the Calvinists in France who between 1561-1562 “murdered 4,000 priests, monks and nuns, expelled or maltreated 12,000 nuns, sacked 20,000 churches, and destroyed 2,000 monasteries” and their priceless works of art. (Novuvelle Collection de memoires relatif a l’histoire de France, Ch. XI, p. 512, a Calvinist account of the murders).

    In fact, should all Catholics just round themselves up and submit to your religion?

  • February 7, 2016 at 8:56am

    Catholicism is not a denomination. Something anyone raised Catholic should have known. So how much did you know?

    If you didn’t understand my question, how about this: what religious affiliation does your preacher have, since you attend his or her place of worship.

    @4
    no one else will answer either, so you are in good company. many are dulled by current sins. it is good you repented for sins a long time ago, but new sins still imperil your soul.

    evidence of your judgment is that you would make a mockery of who gave us the Church and when, and how we received the Bible we Catholics hold so dear. you compare such important questions to a throwaway joke line, chicken and egg. while there can be debate over the chicken or the egg, there is no debatable point about historical dates of the Church’s founding preceding the Bible’s canon. the Church precedes the Bible by over 300 years. The Church precedes YOUR bible by over 1490 years. so it isn’t good to come here with arrogance about knowing the truth about Biblical matters when you can’t identify basic facts about the Bible, such as why we can believe it at all.

    why do you believe the Bible is true?

    You decided to believe in holiness and hell just in time for the Lord’s day. See you at church!

  • [1] February 6, 2016 at 12:06pm

    I’ve never heard anyone ask ANY random person “have you ever molested boys”? Has anyone ever asked you that? It’s a question I’ve never heard addressed.

    Seriously. Are you a member of society at all? That’s not how decent humans talk to each other.
    Walk up to any man and ask that. Ask any random man, “have you ever cheated on your wife?”

    Affairs are far, far, far more prevalent, and are a form of sexual abuse. A person’s logic has to be consistent to contribute substantially to a conversation, and this line of commentary from you is not erudite.

    Nor is your ‘evil proportion’. Define evil proportion, then substantiate your conclusion.

    Matthew 13, quoting from Isa 44 says this in verse 15:
    ‘You shall indeed hear but never understand,
    and you shall indeed see but never perceive.
    For this people’s heart has grown dull,
    and their ears are heavy of hearing,
    and their eyes they have closed,
    lest they should perceive with their eyes,
    and hear with their ears,
    and understand with their heart,
    and turn for me to heal them.’

    What this means is that our ability to think, reason, judge and understand are clouded by sin.
    1 John 5 describes mortal sin. This sin separates man from God. It is choosing mortal sin and hell over relationship with God, including the Holy Spirit. So, a person in mortal sin may THINK he is being guided by the Holy Spirit but the fruits of confusion and anger demonstrate that it is not God who is being obeyed.

    Repent, find a church and sit with Jesus in the blessed Sacrament and seek His return to your soul so that healing (as the verse above says) may commence.

    God bless and you have my sincere love and prayers on this matter.

    @4,
    No, you haven’t answered any history questions with facts, only your preconceived false ideas. I suggest you go back to whomever indoctrinated you and ask them which came first, the Church or the Bible. Your strong opinions don’t rewrite history.
    Matt 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”

    I’m afraid you are believing in some very false notions and sin is clouding your ability to think logically. You may not be upset, but your posts come across as angry and hostile and frankly unstable.

    Jesus can help you through all of those things, but to know His peace, it is important that you find the real Jesus. A Johnny Come Lately “church” inventing history and revising scriptures without authority is not the pillar and bulwark of truth.
    Paul says there is a pillar and bulwark of truth and it is the CHURCH.

    The one Jesus founded. The one that is 2000 years old. It’s not the one you attend. Come to safety. Pray about it.

    Zip,
    No, Scripture doesn’t say that.

    There is no hyphen in scripture. STOP inventing Christian doctrine. Heretical.

    eCharleen,
    Mary wasn’t “just” anyone.
    Shocking for a woman to suggest that.

    All generation shall call her Blessed. Gabriel says Hail, Full of Grace. She is kecharitomene.
    She is the prophesized daughter of Zion in whom the Lord fully dwells.

    She interceded in His first public miracle and she stood at the foot of His Cross, she buried Him and was present at Pentecost. She’s not “just” anything.
    So, be nice to the Mother of our Lord.

    @Mike,
    Okay, well what if society decides atheism is worthy of death? After all, people who believe in God do not commit these types of crimes we’re talking about. They only pretend to.

  • [4] February 6, 2016 at 10:48am

    Heisendude,The Church isn’t like a political party people support. The Church is the Bride of Christ which protects and proclaims the Truth.
    If you don’t think there will be sinners among the true church, read the gospels.

    Atheist regimes have murdered 170,000,000 people in the 20th Century ALONE. As well as over 50,000,000+ babies. How can YOU support a viewpoint that commits intrinsic evil to the extent that is over a quarter billion deaths? Do you think atheists are not sexual predators and sociopaths? Do you REALLY think the sexual predators who did these sins were REALLY Christian? Of course not. They were mentally disturbed men who did NOT believe in God, only pretended to.

    Think it through, man.

  • [2] February 6, 2016 at 10:43am

    The scandals happened decades ago, and anything happening now is handled swiftly.
    Where can I find information to support your conclusion that there is a slow walk and cover up?
