Catholics brag about all the charity work they do for non catholics, yet once they post on here they body slam, insult, and name call, anyone not catholic. Sound familiar REGINA M, DUST STORM, ANTHONY, HOJO, CLAY??

Sitting in the front pew at church every sunday with a big smirk, doesn't mean squat if the other 6 days of the week, they show hateful conduct towards others.

If there really is a God and he keeps score of who is nice and who is not, catholics are going to be in for a big surprise come judgment day.

The Audacity of Pope

I used to believe that the Protestants had a more humble, God-honoring approach, and that the Catholics had an indefensibly high view of the human element within the Church. Things like the succession of the apostolate, the authority of the Church, the so-called “infallibility” of the pope – all of this stuff seemed to me to form a borderline blasphemous package that vaunted and exalted mere human beings at the expense of Christ and His work.

Yet in time, although I saw my previous perspective as eminently understandable, it became clear that it had been an understandable misunderstanding; a misunderstanding that had the peculiar effect of causing me to see things upside down. What I came to recognize, in other words, was that the Catholic position was in actuality the much more humble of the two. Indeed, it was downright self-effacing. For the Catholic position, paradoxically, was that it is precisely because mere men can claim no genuine spiritual authority that the successors of the apostles could claim it; and, in particular, it is precisely because no man can possibly be infallible that the bishop of Rome had to be.

Seventh-day Adventist University names new economics centre after abortionist
by Meaghen Hale
Riverside, California, January 16, 2013 ( LifeSiteNews.com )– The Seventh-day Adventist website ADvindicate has recently drawn attention to the fact that La Sierra University has named a new economics centre after abortionist and gambling magnate Edward C. Allred, who in 1980 claimed to have personally aborted a quarter of a million babies in twelve years.
In 2010, La Sierra, a Seventh-day Adventist University in Riverside, California, established the Edward C. Allred Center to promote free market economics among high school students. The centre’s abortionist namesake founded the Family Planning Associates Medical Group in 1969, a chain of abortion clinics that reportedly makes $70 million in revenue and $5 million in profit annually.

Did you know there is a group called "CATHOLICS FOR FREE CHOICE"

Did you know that catholic women in america have more abortions than protestant women?

Now you know.....B-E-L-O-W!!

..........According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, which tracks reproductive health data, non-Hispanic Catholic women of childbearing age are 29% more likely than their Protestant counterparts to have abortions (full study*). The rate is even higher--33%--if Hispanics are factored in. Another way of looking at it: while Protestant women make up about 54% of the population, they account for only 37% of the abortions. Catholic women make up 31% of the population and account for 31% of the abortions.

......Given the Catholic Church's longstanding position against abortion, one would think the abortion rate would be far lower than the population as a whole -- and yet, if anything, it seems to be higher.

......This paradox puzzles Catholic leaders on both sides of the issue--like Helen Alvare, the former chief pro-life strategist and spokeswoman for the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Frances Kissling, president of Catholics for Free Choice.

It seems if someone is emotionally invested, they can somehow rationalize the morality of it. Especially if they possess spiritually superior teachings on morality.
Amazing, power bestowed by Mussolini. Maybe there is something to that "whore" thing.

Exactly the issue with Catholicism....
It has been proven to be self-righteous (byt he folks who decided upon it) and it is sinful, because it goes against what Jesus stated as the path to salvation, as well as, doesn't include all of his teachings.

Listen up, Jethro....no one said speaking ill of people would get them into heaven, so why are you spreading that lie?
See how that goes?
Telling someone they're lying or defending someone who is ignorant against being used isn't speaking ill of them. However, those who tell the lies had best reconsider their position. As the protestants here are so fond of saying, "It's for their own good."
Now mind your business and look after your own sins.
OMG!

We have to put up with your hateful comments to others until christmas 2013, when miraculously for about 2 days you actually speak nice about everyone, but come December 27th you slide back into hate mode.

Not really NASaL, crimen sollicitationis was a document which dealt specifically with crimes committed related to the confessional. The 'secrecy' element was due to the Seal which under no circumstances can be broken.

There is nothing in this document that would have kept a bishop or anyone else for that matter, from going to the police.

I don't agree with your analogy.

I think you've added bias to your claim.

Prove to the forum that Catholicism is "not of the world".

Prove that it reacts to the course of the world (light over dark).

More name calling and lying from you, LTM. And you just murdered another Catholic. Oh, wait...you've murdered the Pope several times over already. Holy cow, numerous strikes and the day is only half over! Now what are those other stones you have in your casting basket? Come on, let's see them.
I have murdered no one Regina, I assure you.
You are calling me a murderer, for tell you the truth.
My education has nothing to do with knowing when someone is lying to you or telling you the truth.
Its called common sense, and old fashion logic.
The catholic church has over lapped times and dates, placed their church fathers somewhere in history when in reality they were either not born yet or had already died.
People on here has pointed these things out to you but you still called them a liar even after it was proven.
Just point at some of your Popes in history Regina common sense will tell you the catholic church was built upon their pride, greed and the desire for power.
They were not nice men, let alone Men of God.
Wake- Up Regina. You are following the drageon the seperent of old.

NOW LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION REGINA HOW MANY CATHOLIC'S HAVE GONE TO HELL ON THE TEACHINGS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, WHO CHANGES THE TEACHING DEPENDING ON WHO WAS POPE.
HOW MANY OF THEM PAID OFF PRIEST'S SO THEY WOULD STAY AWAY FROM HELL OR PURGATORY, THEY ARE THE MURDERERS REGINA.
NO ONE CAN PAY THEIR WAY TO HEAVEN, THATS IN THE BIBLE YOU CLAIM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH GAVE THE WORLD, YET YOU DON'T BELIEVE IT, AND CALL US LIARS BECAUSE WE DO.

Some did, some didn't. "Scooting over to Rome" is the exception, not the rule. The priests who've spent time in prison and were laicized would tell you that they didn't get any special treatment. On another note, it's rather telling that most of you rabid Catholic Church haters left the Church long before you were aware of any abuse scandal.

Here's an article I find refreshing and feel quite comfortable supporting. You may be surprised NASaL:

For the "umpteenth" time, every word isn't and doesn't have to be in the bible in order for it to be TRUE. TRUE Apostolic Church history from the Early Church Fathers, Apologist Historian authors and writers (BOTH Catholic and Protestant) and documented, proven and verifiable recorded writings from the lives of the Saints have ALL confirmed that the Catholic Church ---has and "IS" the One True Church (in the book of Matthew) that Jesus Christ HIMSELF formed, initiated and authenticated. Your anti-catholic (bogus) history legendary myths are just "twisted, perverted and (made-up) to appease the vengeance and hostility that has you in "bondage and defiance against Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church!!......Fictitious history mythology has always been your strong suit jethro8. Again--- it is (your own) imaginary "church history "invented" fables" vs 1.168 Billion Catholics (and the belief in the TRUTH of TRUE CHURCH HISTORY, accepted around the world...... No one but you "believes" your "anti-catholic history myths except "you"!

I think you have meaning of charity confused with only giving to the less fortunate. This is not exactly what it means in catholic faith. Faith, Hope and Charity. see all def. of charity listed below. I believe #6 is the one spoken of here.
---As for sitting in the front pew. If you ever attended a catholic Mass, you would know that most avoid front pew.
---- I've read no hatred from catholics here, the hatred seems to come from the bashing of others towards our beliefs. Much bashing and hate from the homosexual sluts out there. Like those with no religion have a right to bash.
___go figure and be civil.
__________
Interp. of Charity:
1. Provision of help or relief to the poor; almsgiving.
2. Something given to help the needy; alms.
3. An institution, organization, or fund established to help the needy.

5. Indulgence or forbearance in judging others. See Synonyms at mercy.
