Said the idiot who can't even discuss the Bible, and posts his shit on an atheist forum.
There are many ex-Catholics here who know more about the subject than ANYONE on the forum you mention.

If anyone here needs your advice, they will be sure and ask.

I may have been better off to say I was atheist then to say I was raised Catholic. I am pretty sure a lot of people would have thought they had a better chance of saving an atheist.

Very true.

Just because YOU believe in fairies doesn't mean anybody else should.

RE: The Catholic/Christian Disparity
Yes lots of Christian denominations do not think Catholic is a Christian denomination. As an ex-catholic intend to think it is because of the way the Catholic Church threats things like saints, relics, etc. Also the nature of the catholic mass probably has something to do with it. I suspect this person is probably some form of baptist. The hold the once saved always saved point of view where Catholics do not. It is a big rub between baptist and Catholics.

RE: The Catholic/Christian Disparity
In a nutshell, Protestant Reformation. Martin Luther and the reformers considered the Pope the anti-Christ. The five solas, including sola fide (faith alone) and sola gratia (grace alone) are at the heart of Protestant theology. Catholics stress works, church tradition, veneration of saints/Mary in addition to these as means to salvation. These are anathema in Protestant theology. To be Protestant is to protest against the Catholic Church.

Many baptists, Pentecostals, and other fundy denominations preach that Catholics will go to hell, and that satan is at work in that church. It's all terribly divisive and resulted in much bloodshed in the centuries following the reformation.

I've heard this argument from others before too. It's just further proof of how much ignorance abounds in religion. In fact, religions counts on it for its survival.

The Roman government created the contents of the new Testament and its canon.

The whole damn show is pretty much the creation of the Roman Catholic Church / government.

Considered from the historical perspective, for Protestants to claim they are the true Christians is...um... rather ridiculous.

South Carolina is pretty south. Not till I moved there did I know that being Catholic was so much like being a Satanist. Blink

"Atheism and Theism", I guess you don't know how to read.

This is an atheist forum. Why would he ask the question in an atheist forum?

That would be like me going to a Christian forum and asking them why the disparity among atheists?
