You say it all the time, Christians believe in and worship Jesus you think in your sub 80 IQ mind that Catholics are not Christians. Again I didn't ask what church you attended but what brand of Christianity do you belong to? Why is this such a difficult question for you.
Remember you said in your own words. Catholics do not worship like WE do. Hence you were admitting to being part of a christian religion that worships differently than Catholics. Ok so what church do you align yourself with?
Stop being a dickless coward and answer the question.

WTF?

So I said that Catholics don't worship like we (Christians) do & you assume that meant they don't believe in Jesus?!

You're a f_cking retard, man.

Why don't you spend a few minutes googling the differences between Christians worship & catholic worship & you'll see they're very different.

I'm pretty sure your 65 IQ understood that......

Not christmas wreaths, their use stems back to pre christian times and were used as a sign of rebirth at the pagan winter solstice festivals. Good to know that you are keeping old traditions alive though
Ahhhhh.......

The ole "It's not [insert tradition] because it's been used differently in the past" tactic......

Stupid.

So when I BBQ a steak, I guess you'd consider that a ritual sacrifice because they USED to do that......

Why dont you google when your church was established. I doubt it was before 1517, the date Martin Luther started the protestant reformation.

Nope.
Do you somehow take perverse pleasure in being totally classless, or is it standard fare for that part of the country? Elegance, Sophistication, and social graces, appear to be non-existent with you.

I took a boat to a glacier in Chilean Patagonia in 2005. What a beautiful place. Great people, too.

The problem was, that she withheld pain medication from people who desperately needed it because of her twisted religious concept that suffering was beautiful. And she diverted charity money meant for the poor and destitute, who also desperately needed it, to the Vatican, which is probably one of the biggest wastes of money on the world.
She wasn't intentionally evil. She was brainwashed evil.
I doubt that you can prove that she withheld it from those who truly needed it out of any kind of malicious intent. It's more likely they may have been running short on it and didn't have enough for everybody or there were patients who became addicted and simply "wanted" more than they "needed". MD's cut patients loose from narcotics all the time.
BTW, I didn't know she was an RN; not that I follow any nun's life story.
As for charity $, you know she was just doing what she was told to do, right? Personally, I suspect she was a nun because she wasn't terribly bright. She looked rather dull in the few pictures I've seen of her.

Does it ever?
I was conversing with a Pastor(???? or so he claims) earlier. He said the poor are best served by giving the money to the church. I asked why. Wouldn't the money be better spent by giving it to the poor and leaving the church out of it? He said no. Duh. Again, I asked why. He said the church can help them turn their lives around. I said, "They need money, not salvation". He disagreed again. I got bored and left it at that for now.
Not all pastors are the same. I know of one who went to Africa as a missionary, took his pregnant wife and two daughters to live a meager subsistence in what he called a "service to God". The environment they lived in was not what you could compare to suburbs in America. I questioned him about whether he thought his work there was truly productive or beneficial in any way to his potential converts or his family. His response wasn't exactly what I expected. He said that he was doing his Christian duty to make sure the Word was heard in every nation and that everybody should have a chance to hear it. He mentioned that the main lure he used to get the natives there to attend his sermons was the offer of freebies of food and clothing. He jokingly called it "Melon day" and that his converts were "melon converts". I asked him if that wasn't a bit frustrating and how could he ever be sure that his converts were sincere if material goods were their original interest. He said that all that mattered was that they heard the "Word" and after that it was up to them, what they decided on was of no concern to him; it was their "free will" in action. He couldn't stop the handouts just because the attendees might not be sincere. Of course some of the money that was donated to his church was spent on upkeep of that building but it also went to buying all the fresh fruit and vegetables for the natives in his area. the expense had to be considerable since he was there for more than two years. He lived in places where there were no civilized amenities to speak of, no running water and the like. I know I wouldn't have wanted to be dragged around the world to live like his daughters had to, all of it just to "save souls".
