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.

Care to defend the above in the boxing ring?

LOL. I think you're gonna need vaseline dude, 'cos you're about to get reamed.

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

That is way north of me. South of I-10 along the gulf coast is fairly catholic, especally in Louisiana. I am like 60 miles SSW of New Orleans.

He has to accept first. Maybe you could convince him to?

It may or may not come from the idea that denomination X is the "true" denomination, and Catholics just happen to not be denomination X. Perhaps they read too much Jack Chick as a kid and some of it stuck. Some of it might be half-remembered stuff they heard about Catholicism in confirmation class.

Growing up Lutheran, I was made well aware of the distinctions between Catholic belief and Lutheran belief so that we could be told why we believe what we believe. Given that Luther was responsible for what would eventually become the Catholic/Protestant split, I can see Lutherans spending a lot of time talking about it. Hell, at my old church, Reformation Sunday was almost as big a deal as Easter and Christmas. So, it wouldn't surprise me if your average non-Lutheran Christian wasn't told as much about Catholicism as I was.

Hopefully he will look at your other pathetic debate wastes-of-time, where you do nothing but spout inane questions, and refuse to define your terms. Actually debating you is granting legitimacy to a lying, disingenuous piece of crap. I think we need a "Wanker's lies/unkept promises for Jebus" thread.

I would hate to see Mark waste his time with this one.

You plan on trying to re-define history or something?

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?

Yet YOU are here talking about being a former atheist, and you think that makes sense. Many here are former Christians. I see critical thinking is not one of your string suits. One of believers favorite pass-times is to project their assumptions about non-believers on people they have never met, as you well know, and often participate in.

Except most christians do not have an athiest background. Lots of athiest have a religious background and are generally well versed in the particular religion they were in. I am ex-catholic and know more about the catholic church than my kids high school religion teachers. I am like this becasue when I started to doubt I studied to try and find the answers. I studied doctrine of the church, history (traditions) of the church and seculary history of religion. I know very few practicing catholics that have done any of that.

I sure wish you would state that as opinion rather than fact.

Because it is only your opinion.
