I think we all know why.

There were these two nuns riding their bicycles through the backstreets of Rome when the sister following the other exclaimed "I've never come this way before!".

The nun in front yelled back, "It's the cobblestones!"

“let's do this thang!”

<quoted text>Here- SUCK on this, RR.
"What is the Catholic Religion?
For the first thousand years of Christianity there was no "Roman Catholicism" as we know it today, simply because there was no Eastern Orthodoxy or Protestantism to distinguish it. There was only the "one, holy, catholic church" affirmed by the early creeds, which was the body of Christian believers all over the world, united by common traditions, beliefs, church structure and worship (catholic simply means "universal"). Thus, throughout the Middle Ages, if you were a Christian, you belonged to the Catholic Church. Any Christianity other than the Catholic Church was a heresy, not a denomination.
Being Catholic Today
Today, however, Roman Catholicism is not the only accepted Christian church.******Thus to be a Roman Catholic means to be a certain kind of Christian:****** one with unique beliefs, practices and traditions that are distinct from those of other Christians. Nevertheless, the Catholic Church continues to maintain that it alone has carried on the true tradition of the apostolic church and has traditionally regarded dissenting groups as heresies, not alternatives (Martin Luther was swiftly excommunicated). However, the recent Second Vatican Council declared all baptized Christians to be "in a certain, although imperfect, communion with the Catholic Church." {1}
Although it did not begin at a specific point in history like the Protestant denominations, in its long history Roman Catholicism has evolved into a distinctive branch of Christianity with beliefs, practices and organization that differ from both Protestantism and Orthodoxy.
The Makeup of Catholocism
******Roman Catholicism is by far the largest Christian group.****** With more than one billion adherents, Catholics constitute about half of the world's Christians.{2} Catholicism is the majority religion of Italy, Spain, and nearly all Latin American countries.
*****In 2001, about 24 percent of Americans identified themselves as Catholic, making Catholicism the largest Christian denomination in America******(if the Protestant denominations are counted individually). The next largest denomination, Baptist, was claimed by 16 percent of Americans.{3} Yet if Protestants are considered as one group, Catholics remain a minority among America's Christians.
And special note from the above: "Roman Catholicism is by far the largest Christian group."
I guess that means you're a MINORITY, huh, RR? ROFLMAO!!!
Such fuel to feed the fire of your self-inflicted persecution complex- too funny!

Now you be sure to "shoot" the messenger- the website I used- rather than actually listen to the FACTUAL message provided.
bottom line reason why i believe that catholics (in general) are not christian is that they trust in the sacraments/works and the institution for their salvation/justification, while a true Christian trusts in Christ for their salvation/justification.

a good secondary reason not to believe that they're christian is that you're arguing that they are;)

I think that a non-Muslim sees Islam as a poor attempt by someone who was following a certain form of either Christianity or Judaism, but got the idea to change some of those beliefs and create his own set of beliefs, much as Joseph Smith did when he created the scam which is now called Mormonism. Smith was a known scam artist before he came up with his myth of finding gold tablets somewhere in eastern USA (I think in New York state, which is the state which is my near neighbor on our border) allegedly left there by Jews who had traveled to the New World long before any known explorers discovered the New World existed, and which is known to never have occurred.
I don't think any fellow Christians who are not Mormons have any difficulty in accepting that Smith was a fraud, as most would think the same of Muhammad. Muhammad probably seems a bit more mysterious to current people because he was long ago, whereas Smith was in recent history when people who were alive when I was young knew people who were alive when they were young who actually knew Smith.
I've actually read quite about the Mormons, Because I did a research paper which was about polygamy, We support it, I showed that it is a rightful act, which the mormons were quite interting to bring up because they actually support polygamy, YES REDNECK hear that? hahaha I bet he is pissed to hear that. they are a bit different from christianity but I do not remember much. Booooots, your comparison to Joseph Smith with mohammed is irrelevant, for they shared much differnces, that story of him does not fit like the story of Mohammed, I do not see how u could see them as the same.

It's obviously coming from deep within the Earth. Regardless, if it was "holy" in any way then why is it poisonous? in May 2011, a BBC investigation found that genuine Zamzam water taken from the well contained arsenic levels three times the legal limit, something which could contribute to increasing people's risk of cancer. In addition to the dangerous arsenic levels, the holy water contained high levels of nitrate and potentially harmful bacteria.

Oh, the irony.

Not gonna keep driving the point of all this home- that being that while the sky does indeed appear/look to be blue and sometimes black, in actuality, it is neither.

Yes, for all intents and purposes, when we look at the sky we see it as blue or black, but that is an illusion and the color we perceive the sky to be is not actually the color it is and in fact, the sky has no actual color.

If you care to look into this for yourself, the research and the facts are out there.

Uh- yes they do. They consider themselves to be a part of the religion of Christianity.

That you misinterpret that to suit your own moronic agenda doesn't change the fact that:

CATHOLICS ARE CHRISTIANS.

BTW, I'm still waiting for you to cite sources or quotes from those "Catholic leaders" you spoke about who you said don't consider Catholics to be Christians.

At any rate, something tells me you know NOTHING about ANY Christian religion; if you did, you might know that Protestants don't believe the exact same thing as Methodists, that Methodists don't believe the exact same thing as Baptists, that Baptists don't believe the exact same thing as Lutherans, etc.

However, none of that changes that those are all Christian religions, as is Catholicism.

Sorry for your luck.

IDIOT.

See where it says "OTHER" Christians?

Thus to be a Roman Catholic means [to have] unique beliefs, practices and traditions that are distinct from those of ****other**** Christians.

They most certainly DO consider themselves to be Christian.

YOU on the other hand- how ANYONE could consider a smarmy, duplicitous sleaze ball such as you are a Christian is beyond me; of course, that's assuming we're talking about the TRUE definition of what it means to be a Christian- a definition that does not at all fit you in the slightest.
