According to Discover:

16% seems like a very 'definite' number ... but my intuition tells me this number probably is not absolute.

Infallible Catholic Church Teaching #63...
It is moral and correct to use the power of "Holy diplomatic immunity" to avoid accountability in the abuse of children at schools for the deaf
1... It was probably the deaf children's fault.
2... It was "just a few sinners here and there."
3... It really has nothing to do with THE Church.
Holy diplomatic immunity is a good thing when used against the deaf.
Amen
NO.

From the Article of this Board.......
"It says although Orthodox churches are true churches, they are defective because they do not have diplomatic immunity."
The document adds that Protestant denominations called Christian Communities born out of the Reformation are not true churches, but ecclesial communities.
"These ecclesial communities which, specifically because of the absence of diplomatic immunity cannot, according to Catholic doctrine, be called 'churches' in the proper sense," it said.
i could be wrong but isn't it stated that the catholic church calls these other churches inferior because they do not reconize the papal chair as being holy??

Your question of "Why no one sees they changed his name and made him a god?" Is a bit cryptic....But the way you write, it seems you are asking the question, Why did they change the name of God?
There are three answers....
First God is not contained in letters that human beings write. Letters are for language, and language is conceptual. Therefore the translation of language is upon concepts. God is not a concept, or a munfufactured idea(concept) of man. Another way to see this is if one called God is ABC, or CBA, does it matter? No, because neither is God.
Secondly, language is an expression, and thus artistic. And therefore one cannot artistically capture God. Rather one can only describe God with symbols.
Thirdly, God is Spirit. And Spirit can act upon Creation, but Spirit is outside of Creation, and is therefore indescribable.
I hope that answered your question....
quote"God is not a concept, or a munfufactured idea(concept) of man."unquote unless you can show undeniable proof that the one god theory is true,he is a concept of mans.you have nothing to verify the stories in the bible and the books left out are factual,if you read history dating farther back than 2000 yrs. ago you'll find the same stories written by learned people,the most common one is the great flood story,stories of this nature go back before man created the alphabet,there are numerous drawings on cave walls in europe,south america,ireland,scotland and asia. the bible is a concept created by a group of people that emporer constantine put together to create a religion that the christians and paganists of rome could live with,that is how the concept of catholocism was born,it is of mans imagination,not a creation of a single god,if it were it would date back further than 2,000 yrs. considering how long the earth has been around,2,000 yrs is not that long ago.the earth is billions of years old and a god created man a few centuries ago? i believe we were aledgedly created somewhere between 6,000 to 10,000 yrs ago? the time depends on who you talk to,religious group that is.and christianity is a baby compared to other religions.

Next question?:oD
here's your next question,how can anyone belong to a religious group that allows people to die needlessly because it is forbidden for a jehovah to have a blood transfussion which would save the persons life? two cases stand out in my mind that i read about in the newspaper because these cases ended up in court.a thirteen year old girl needed blood in order to survive an acident she had,her parents refused to allow the doctors to give her the blood she needed,the case went to court seeking an order from a judge to allow the girl to recieve the blood,unfortunately while the court battle was going on the girl died, for no reason other than a religious belief in a god that no one can prove exists.in the second case a woman in her 50's involved in a car accident lost a lot of blood needed a few pints in order to live her husband refused to let the doctors give the woman the blood,the woman's side of the family took the matter to court,to allow the dr's. to give the woman the blood and she would of survived,again due to the lengthy judicial process involed the woman died before the case could be settled. like i said a waiste of human life for no reason whatso ever. you may be a nice person, but your religion sucks.

It says nothing about transfusions, which can save a life... Drinking blood or eating it is forbidden; not transfusions of blood.
Actually, you won't admit it, but she just proved you wrong by using scripture.
You and 4gvn are on the same team with Guest. But Guest doesn't agree with you...she agrees with Aviela.
Good news though....I just started my own religion and declared myself an authority on the Bible. Now I can prove all you wrong by showing Jesus Christ started a Church, not a book. The Bible arose within the Church and became 'a Bible' 70 yrs after Constantine died.

distorting historical fact is allot more difficult than distorting verse chapter verse of the Bible.

When you go to the hospital next time for your treatment, remember to thank the Roman Catholic Church for the whole hospital concept.

The Church created the idea of a building constructed for the sole purpose of caring for the sick and dying.

Prior to this, people like you Jethro, were brought out to the wilderness and left to die, because people were so terrified about contacting whatever illness was affecting their loved ones.
It was hard to feel that way once they observed Catholic Priest and nuns caring for cancer victims until their last breath.

What's Catholicism have to do with her reply?

Jethro, you know so little about Catholicism. And when we try to show you, you just plug your ears and yell 'la la la'. I guess its better to not know the truth, otherwise you may have to change your thinking. Bigotry and ignorance go hand in hand. They need each other.
