Bashing catholicism is ignorance.

I have no intention to delve into history now. I have done it over and over and am frankly suffering from serious redundancy.

I know where the harlot, babylon gibber comes from. Frankly, Ellen White and her band of brainwashed followers can get a "holy" chill pill and appreciate the tranquility of life

No catholicism, no christianity, no missionaries, no jesuits, no education, no science, no exploration, no trade route, no new world, no Asian ventures, no Africa, no Europe, no Christendom, also, no crusades, no sale of indulence, no inquisition (all ye anti-christians getting worked up, you can probably get un-worked up ), no Septuagint, no Vulgate, no translations, no Bible...

Anyone disagrees? Please don't try, even Google and wiki will let you down. Encyclopedia Britannica needs a subscription, but it's not gonna help either.

The great Indian poet Kalidasa, once ventured into the forests across the Gupta Empire. He found a man in the woods, perched on a tree's branch and cutting it down. Kalidasa laughed at him and pointed out his folly. I'm compelled to draw a parallel.

All the rest of you are christians today, because of Catholicism. If you can't get over it, time to go booze and have the bartender turn on Bill Maher

I think you guys are going to be really surprised if you make it to heaven and learn that the only guys who got it remotely correct were the Mennonites or some other small, unheralded denomination.

They choose not to understand our theology. It isn't that hard to understand, anyone with a low reading comprehension should be able to understand it. Anyone with a small desire or curiosity should be able to wrap their minds around our theology.

Anyone with a desire to read Church history will come to the conclusion that the entire kingdom of Christianity comes from one source, our religion, Catholicism. Jesus did not say in the beginning that he wanted 33,000+ different Church's to worship God. He would have wanted one united kingdom, one Church, the Universal Church that is Catholicism.

Actually, not. Catholicism really didn't reach its present form until at least the fourth century. While there was a Bishop of Rome, he was not considered the supreme head of the church for a very long time.

Dante's 843rd circle of fire in the Inferno is reserved for:
Those who moot (imply) that others will go to hell.

"Teacher, is there a circle reserved for kid-threateners?"

"Is that a new term?"

"Yeah, blah, blah, blah"

"Ugh, things have changed a lot since me and Beatrice went to church"

<nod>

"I'm inserting a concentric circle, right now, do you have a compass?"

"No, I have a divider "

"What is that for?"

"Place it in the bench before the kids "

"A circle for bum-pokers?"

"No, thanks, you may go Beatrice now "

I'm not going to harp on this topic, there is no point. I will say that the protestant denominations are not much better. Even as i believe that the RCC is the mystery Babylon, the mother of all harlots, i believe that the many various protestant denominations(as well as Islam) are the "harlots" who's mother is the catholic church. Jesus didn't bring a new religion, he came to free us from slavery to religion(traditions of men). The gospel is not a religion, it is the spiritual truth. Sorry if i step on your toes, but this is my understanding.

Shalom
