Truly, I really dont mean to mean to offend anyone OTHER than the exact people HERE that I'm offending.<quoted text>
No, I'm not Catholic. Their teachings contradict the Bible. Starting with the Pope is infallible. Honestly, I don't know any Catholics that sign on to that belief.
And I agree, sjm and several others who post here do not represent Christianity. We're supposed to be approachable, for one. lol
Every Christian on this board, SHOULD be offended by what they proport to represent. Hell, every person of ANY faith should be offended.
How is it that literally BILLIONS upon BILLIONS of people for hundreds of thousands of years have been able to come TOGHETHER DESPITE their faiths on all kinds of issues big and small, for the greater good.
Their extremist view would legislate ONE VERSION of "faith's" religous dogma, and literally to HELL with anyone that doesn't agree with them. Women would be relegated to little more than the biblical state of chattel (and they're too dirt STUPID to understand that), and these yahoo's would be fine with that.
Oh, and along the way, they'd like to take ANY right of medical choice away from people that has to do with end of life issues. And while we're at it, lets invade people's bedrooms, and their MARRIAGE beds too.
Bunch of phony fundi extremist idiots is ALL they are.
