Being less than forthright normally is<quoted text>I was a catholic until I reached the age of reason, about 12. Didn't see the logic behind worshiping a child murdering, baby killing, genocidal maniac. That was easy eh?
I grew up in a Catholic grade school. I couldn't have told you a single OT verse when I was 12. Christians are under the New Testament. And they certainly don't address subjects like you mentioned that are in the OT with 12 year olds. And even with adults you pretty much have to be in a bible study to go over anything in the OT because as you should know, Catholics have a strong focus on the gospels.
So...what is the real answer and not the made-for-Topix answer?
