The idea that a dogma can change would cause any of those people over at SD to bust a blood vessel...


Meat on Friday?

Unbaptized babies in Limbo?

The infallibility of the Pope? (a doctrine literally younger than the invention of the elevator)

(No) meat on Friday is a practice, not a dogma. That kind of thing is changeable at the discretion of the Church. Papal infallibility is a dogma, but doesn't mean what most people think. It's not that he can't ever be wrong about anything. He is only "infallible" when he speaks ex cathedra, which is very rare. Not sure about babies and Limbo. But a dogma is by definition an eternal, undeniable truth. Once the Church declares something as a dogma, it is true forever, and all Catholics are obligated to believe and accept it. Of course, there are many Catholics who do not accept all of the dogmas, but they are not very good Catholics. Big Grin

"Best" in what sense? Wackiest? Hardest to believe/accept in the modern world? Or best in the literal sense of the word?

Some pretty wacky ones: (1) The belief that at every Mass, bread and wine are magically transformed into the Body and Blood of Christ, and that this is real, not just symbolism (and that regularly eating the Body and Blood of Christ is a good thing to do). (2) The belief that every human being ever born has somehow inherited "original sin" because two people thousands of years ago ate some fruit that they weren't supposed to eat, and that God becoming man and allowing us to kill him (a much worse crime, I would think, than anything Adam and Eve did) somehow makes everything OK. (3) EENS -- this stands for some Latin phrase that I can't remember, but it translates to "No salvation outside the Church" -- meaning that if you are not a baptized, believing Catholic, you're going to burn in Hell forever. No ifs, ands, or buts.

That should hold us for now. Of course, Hindus and Muslims and Mormons believe equally wacky shit. No religion is immune from it.

An oxymoron?

Oh and... Extra ecclesiam nulla salus

But perhaps that means: No extra salad cream.

Is there a quantity discount? Warranty? What is your return policy? Consider

I just don't understand anyone who would allow someone else to control them via the internet.

Look at it this way -- that forum is a home of sorts for her. It's a place where she can socially interact with other traditional Catholics (who can be hard to find in the real world). It's not that she's afraid of the forum owner or intimidated by him -- but if she defies him, she might get banned, and then wouldn't have that "home" anymore. She has already been banned from Fisheaters -- she doesn't want to lose SD as well.

I find that understandable. Sad, but understandable.
