What ever you believe is you're business. I have no personal issues with any one of faith. I just give information. It might not be the information you want to believe, but I don't post bogus stories.<quoted text>
Problem is Michael, you don't post any truth. Obviously you've never taken any religious studies because there are some Christians who claim they didn't come out of the Reformation. They don't even claim to be Protestants. Like Voz Razon for example. He claims to be from a non denominational Christian church. I asked him one time if he considered himself a Protestant and he said no. He said he was just a Christian trying to do his best to love the Lord and fellow Christians. He doesn't care what denomination you are.
Unlike the anti Catholic bigots that hang here, he reflects how the Church ends each Mass with these words "Go in peace and serve the Lord."
Now I'm going along my merry way trying my best to serve the Lord and love all who love God. I don't care if you're a Protestant or a Catholic, although I do feel the full truth is in the Catholic Church.
Let me ask you something Michael. In all honesty, when I am going about living my normal life, I don't experience the hostility that is exhibited on Topix. Matter of fact, when I was in Charleston on business, during my spare time I visited all the historic churches there. One was a Hugenot church. Isn't it beautiful?
When I walked in there and struck up a conversation with a woman who seemed to have some authority over visitors to the church she was shocked when I told her I was Catholic, but cordially welcomed me and proceeded to show me their beautiful church and the adjacent graveyard. I thanked her for her time and went about my way. Not a harsh word among us. I think Jesus likes that when we don't beat up on each other.
I have been corrected a few times with incorrect data, and I have acknowledged that, but when I claim the number of those that practice their faith, or that the nuns are making history with the two investigations of them, or money laundering scandals in the vatican, why are catholics afraid to acknowledge what is really going on today in you're church in the secular sense.
Believe what you want, but today there are many terrible things going on in religion that many just do not want to know about, and that is sad.
We all have to take the good with the bad.
Religious leaders over the past number of years have set terrible examples of good morality and integrity, and I am not afraid to point it out.
sometimes the truth hurts!
Call me all the names you want.
