To make a long story short, a disgruntled ex-employee has filed a complaint that she was let go because of her Christian faith. No further explanation. I don't have a religious background, but I was surprised by the complaint since everyone in the place is some kind of Christian. I was told no, not Mrs. R, she's Catholic. I was confused by this answer and tried asking another employee who said no, they're different. I agree there are differences between the denominations, but there's no way I can accept that Catholics aren't Christians. What am I missing?

Some people, they will give you the appropriate word, then a 100 people play victim as if they have somehow been injured, its ridiculous.

So stupid, people need to get lives, God forbid they are in your home association some people for some bad thing in their life that happened to them, well, they are just jerks because they havn't learned the magical mystery iife,

Hate makes people miserable

See some people are at home being miserable, hateful, greedy, sociopaths that only care about playing a victim card in order fulfill their every wish.

They hate themselves even though their reality is pure fantasy of a person's crazed mind that never sins or at least thinks themselves to be more righteous than anyone around them

So sorry that happened to you,

Those people have lived a sheltered like in the wrong style.

When I was growing up there was a number of more conservative/evangelical/pentecostal type denominations that kind of muttered "Catholics aren't Christians" under their breath. And some were more overt about it.

From what I understand... say before 1950 this stance was held to the point that in many places where Catholics were a minority... they were somewhat stigmatized.

In my experience there were all kinds of reasons I heard why Catholics "weren't Christians"...

They sprinkle. They worship Mary. They worship Saints. They worship the Pope. They have extra Bible books. They believe in Limbo and Purgatory. And various and assundry issues regarding their theology.

In my small Oklahoma town they Catholics had their own school and they had taken over what was a local oilman's mansion and grounds and had a convent. Growing up I was a bit leery of the nuns when I would see them about town. And there were stories among us kids that they would shoot you with rock salt if you tried to get on their grounds.

As us kids got into Jr. High, the Catholic kids joined us at the public schools and they seemed normal and they laughed at all of our scary stories about the nunnery. It was quite disappointing. One thing was though, when we got to high school it was a lot of the Catholic boys who taught the Baptist boys how to drink and party. So they ended up holding lofty status at our school.

People who say Catholic are not Christian have a spiritual authority sin of antichrist spirits, as there are countless believers who walk with Christ in their church just like the other church who may have some poorly developed believers and some highly developed believer as if you have a few people then the church is legitimate for God presence

Oh, good lord! All the current sects of christianity came from the holy roman empire, which we nowdays call catholic. You are not confused your co-workers are. And they probably think that the muslim religion is different as well even though it has the exact same roots as all christian versions of the judaic religion. People don't learn history and are told stuff that is wrong, but it fits their picture of reality so they insist that is how things are. The disgruntled person filing the complaint is most likely misrepresenting the reason she was let go.

This thread invites accusing Christians of not being Christian which is not allowed on this forum and it should be closed, IMO.

The truth.

Some see Christianity as a religion, separated from Catholicism. Others see Christianity as more of a philosophy...that is, the 'umbrella' that houses religious denominations, including Catholicism.

Those who believe in Christ are said to be Christian. Catholics believe in Christ...therefore, they're Christian.

I would say the person who said "no, she's not christian, she's Catholic" was mistaken. Catholicism is considered a Christian religion.
