The weakness of the link and that propagandist writer is obvious in this remark;

"Older Catholic churches are in the shape of a cross. Many people believe that this is to remind a person that Jesus died on the Cross. It was actually taken from many of the ancient pagan designs that would have a wing of the temple face north, one to the south, one to the east, and one to the west.

The pews in the Catholic churches are actually a throwback to some of the ancient Roman temples that would have long aisles of benches for the believers to sit on"

He has not looked at the actual geographic layout of most Catholic churches. But more importantly, he is clearly ignorant of the inherent cultural beliefs of the localities of where these churches were built. Those people at those times still held that there was significance to the way a building was built and how it "pointed" on a compass. What the shape was, etc, etc...

Instead he's looking at it from a modern POV, where allegedly these things are ALL pagan in source and meaning. Where mankind has been building against the lay of the land for centuries only to suffer the consequences when a storm/disaster hits. But natives, aka Pagans, knew better than to build a building with its main walls facing the directions of the usual storms. Something ignored here in the America's where a new breed of Xtian arrogance came ashore.

Plus the pew reference is pure Proty arrogance, as Proty churches did the same F'n thing. Where else, or how else were the congregants to sit? In small circles where some would have their back the pulpit!?

Oh no the Romans, actually the Greeks in their theaters, invented a seating plan! Throw the baby, water and tub out! What next? Pagan Romans built roads and aqueducts...don't drive on roads, or drink from water !!!

What a piece of shyte writing, and what a jerk you are, Trunk, to rely on such propaganda...showing that you are a RC hater, and basher, and an overall moron!

And this jerk-off on Yahoo is an expert in what?
(sounds of crickets)

He interviewed Stan Lee is his claim to fame??! Who hasn't interviewed that press whore!!?!

Sounds to me he's learned his history of well probably everything from comic books.

Plus you morn, you are admitting that something built in "pagan fashion" can defeat your God!

Why would it matter to your all powerful Oz, the shape or direction of a Church?

Explain why there would be any significance at all? Come on lay out an argument! If Xtians gather isnt it the power of their faith that matters? Not the shape or direction of a building...?!

Are you aware that some early American Proty Churches were built on lands once occupied by pagans? On sites they deemed spiritually special? That the pre-RC xtians in the ME and westward went out of their way to use pagan temples and such as their own!!

You're just a dumarse, prejudiced, Kool-aid drinking American Fundy Xtian who couldn't think your way out of a lighted hallway!

Another ridiculous line;

" the Christians moved into the land of the Celts, they saw how the druids prepared the altars, and that they blessed water, wine, and bread. The druids did this on a regular basis.."

Oh so Jesus copied the Druids? His lines were not originals.

F'n stupid morons! Wine was always a part of rituals!!(in those cultures with wine in their diets) As was bread - WTF!

If you look enough there is barely anything unique to Xtianity, or how it manifested in worship rituals post-Jesus. Food was always symbolic to all cultures!

But F'n stupid American Fundy Xtian who refuse to learn more'n what your trailer model number is...rely on your ignorance as a foundation to "know" things...

For the love of your God do something worthwhile with that brain, and donate it to science while its still in your skull!

RE: Catholic means "universal". Apparently Paul of Tarsus invented the Catholic Religion to be for everybody, consisting of many parts of various belief systems, similarly as the inventor od the Esperanto language use various languages to construct Esperanto.
..... HOWEVER, Catholics are NOT Christians, because by definition only those are Christians who follow the lifestyle and only the teachings of a Christ, ignoring the teachings of all others.

Well that's a boatload of explanation as to why you're a near idiot who drinks propaganda Kool-aid for B, L and D, re; the RCC. Never met a JW who was not well versed in prejudice and propaganda.

But that's a lie.

You JW's have a green light to lie for the good of your cult.

So it's best to call everything you post, a lie, and dismiss it all.

I was a Roman Catholic for 36 years and know the Roman Catholic religion and it goes back to paganism.do the research for yourself if you don`t believe me.
I found the truth out and got out.

Revelation 18:4-5
Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)
4 Then I heard another voice from heaven saying,

“Come out of her, my people,
lest you take part in her sins,
lest you share in her plagues;
5 for her sins are heaped high as heaven,
and God has remembered her iniquities.

If you want to call History a lie then that is up to you, but facts are facts.

So you gave up on Catholicism, and joined up with a completely wacky yet evil cult made up in the 1870s.

You are not the brightest bulb in the pack I see.
