I'd also seriously like to know what the main differences are between say Catholics and Protestants, since they are the ones on here who seem to be most at odds with each other. It seems like it just boils down to a bunch of minor technicalities. You all basically believe the same thing right?

Protestant is a general term that refers to Lutherans, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists and a few others. So the basic differences lie between the Protestants and the Catholics.

The Catholic church is the original Christian church that was started by Jesus. The Apostle Peter was the first Pope.(Back then they called the position Bishop of Rome.) In the middle ages there was a lot of corruption in the Catholic Church causing a monk named Martin Luther to nail a thesis containing a list of 95 acts of heresy committed by the Catholic church, onto the church door, becoming a Protest-ant. Amazingly Luther was able to escape the wrath of the Bishops and went into hiding for a year with an outstanding order for his arrest hanging over his head, where he translated what's now the Lutheran Bible. So Martin Luther was the first Protestant.

Ass it now stands:

Protestants believe that we are saved through faith in Christ alone. Catholics believe in Jesus, but they also trust in Mary as the co-redeemer, assigning her a place nearly equal to God.

Protestants believe in the authority of the Bible over that of any man. Catholics believe that the Pope has the final authority that dictates the word of God.

Catholics believe that babies must be baptized to go to heaven. Protestants practice baptism, however they believe you have to be old enough to make your own choice, believing that unbaptized babies will go to heaven.

Catholics believe they can confess their sins to the priest and be forgiven. Protestants believe they must confess their sins to God alone.

As far as social issues go, the Protestants and Catholics generally both disagree with abortion and homosexuality, although many of the Protestant churches, such as Episcopal, Presbyterians, many Methodist churches have gone liberal, and no longer hold to those values. The more evangelical churches tend to agree with the Catholics on social issues.

I hope this helps.

despite all his misfortune, although, when it becomes apparent that things are not going right or when he is pushed beyond the breaking point of his patience, he tends to snap and go on insane tirades, frightening and disturbing those around him; his wife Ellen says of him in Christmas Vacation "when you get mad, you get weird."

Jesus did not start the Catholic church or any other church. There is no evidence to support that Jesus ever heard the word Christian. Jesus was Jewish through and through. The Gospels even quote him as saying he was sent specifically for the Jews. He did not want or try to create a new religion; he wanted to bring the new convenant to the Jews. He never once deviated from his Jewish faith. I'd suggest that unless we recognize that Jesus was a Jew and never tried to be anything but a Jew, we can never truly understand him.

MARY
John 19: 26-27 - "When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold, your son." Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother." And from that hour the disciple took her into his home. "
Luke 1: 46-48 - "And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed"
Revelation 12:17 - "Then the dragon became angry with the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God's commandments and bear witness to Jesus."
EUCHARIST
John 6, 53 -56 - "Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him."
