LOL He has now admitted that he has gone "occasionally" to ONE church that his wife attends (backing down from his previous claims of seeing the "cross on pole parade" at EVERY church he has visited and then at MOST churches he has visited, which is actually ONE church.)<quoted text>
So he sees crosses being paraded on poles (very common in the Catholic church) and you missed it. So what?
Your visit to church was probably your first ever. You recently stated that you had never gotten up your nerve to go to church since you left the truth. So you are no expert on what goes on in churches, just the one you happened to go to for Easter Bunny Day.
I never said it didn't happen anywhere, did I? Nope. But since man_711 was calling everyone a liar when they said they had never seen this, I was curious.
I had never seen it happen in Episcopalian, Baptist, Methodist or Greek Orthodox churches that I attended for weddings or funerals.
As I stated, I figured that if this occurred in any church on a regular basis, it would be a Catholic church, so I was looking for that to occur. It didn't.
Obviously, man_711 is no "expert" either since he has now admitted that his "expertise" involves ONE church that his wife attends and that he has occasionally gone to to please her.
Maybe it does occur in that ONE church (but since he has lied so much about it, I'm not really sure if we can believe him) but it certainly doesn't seem to be a widespread practice.
How many Catholic churches have YOU attended on a regular basis so that you can truthfully (is this a word you even know?) state that it is "very common" in Catholic churches?
Please, let us know how long you attended these Catholic churches and how many you attended where the cross was paraded on poles.
