I wonder why these Catholics refuse to acknowledge these blatant truths?<quoted text>
If its so tiresome, then go to a Catholic forum instead of Topix.
You need complete agreement, because the "perfect" and "only" faith thing is completely full of holes. History says it's absurd.
And it's not just ex-Catholics who make the RCC a comedy club staple.
It's not ex-Catholics who caused the RCC in Germany to loose 30% of attendance since Benedict became Pope.
It's not ex-Catholics who made Ireland break diplomatic relations with the RCC.
You point fingers at all others, but have you looked in the mirror?
Holy Diplomatic Immunity!!!
Do you think they are fearful?
