Catholic vs. Christian
I have heard many callers say something like:

I was raised a Catholic but I later converted to Christianity.

or

I was born a Catholic but later I became a Christian.

I am very confused. Catholics are Christians. They are actually the largest and oldest form of Christianity. Is it common somewhere in the world that people think that Catholics aren't Christian? If so then what is their reasoning for this? Are they just so ignorant of what Catholicism is that they don't realise that they are Christians? What is it about Catholicism that makes them not think they are Christians? They seem to do the same with Mormons too and they are just as Christian (its even in the name of their church Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints).

The Catholics clearly don't worship Jesus enough.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

It is mostly an American sentiment and that comes from the fact that though america is very "religious" not many people know anything about the bible or the history of their supposed faith.

Plus them Catholics are filthy Catholics, not unfilthy Protestants.

Maybe it's like baseball, Catholics are the National league.
Christians have the designated hitter rule.Big Grin

I've heard these same statements before and it puzzles me too.

The American Ideal is a WASP or White Anglo-Saxon Protestant. Anything else is considered "other" or different.

We have the Orthodox Church here in Greece.
Catholics, Protestants, anyone who is not in it is not considered a real Christian.

Citation needed.

It's prevalent here too. And in Malaysia and the Philippines and etc..

Just more evidence that the flock believe what they are told and don't know the history or read their foundational texts.

But, yes Robert, it baffles me too.

Huh

Anyone who thinks a dead jew came back to life is a xtian in my view.

It is not a title worthy of respect.
