Do you have any links where the Roman Catholic Church BANNED the Bible?
Duh!
OJG just gave them to in the papal edicts and "bulls".
Banning the word from the public is no different than banning it in it's entirety...it is nothing more than an attempt at domination through mind control (or lack of) by the control of available information..
It may have been better had they succeeded in that effort. When the theocracy collapsed, the errant teachings would have gone with them. There is a good chance that the pedophilia of the RCC may never have developed as it's doctrines and rituals wouldn't even exist, or would have been minimal.

You and mojo should team up. The only thing he can say in defense of Rome is, "there are 38,000, 40,000, 42,000 denominations". LOL LOL Hey cly, list these denominations or shut your pie hole. I will wait(but not hold my breath)for your reply. Get with mojo. He can be your resource for excess BOLOGNA. LOL
Why are you defending Protestantism???

The Puritans were cruel dictators that also wanted their own versions of the bible to be THE rules followed by All.

Thomas Jefferson (Lutheran) who wrote his own version of the bible owned slaves and was no prize either.

In 1779, Thomas Jefferson proposed a law that would mandate castration for gay men and mutilation of nose cartilage for gay women. But that's not the scary part. Here's the scary part: Jefferson was considered a liberal. At the time, the most common penalty on the books was death.

You also take only your own interpretations of scriptures from the bible.

That is WHY Catholics and Protestants killed each other. And that is why Protestants killed other Protestants.

The bible has been used as a weapon since its compilation and nothing has changed.

People are determined to try to force others to what they personally believe "god" expects of human behavior.

Idiocy in action!!!

Here is a recent one I saw: "Maplewood Church of Christ"
The sign outside the community center where they hold worship service says : "the first century Church in the 21st century"

They have a Bible just like you. They believe in the necessity of water baptism and faith+works.
You disagree right?

The church of Christ (like the born again movement) picked up their bibles and saw a verse or two and decided to launch a religion. Theirs is Romans 16:16. Yours is John 3:3.

Maybe you ought to provide a verse where Christ says the Bible is the only thing revealed about His Ministry. Perhaps you'll cease trashing His Mother if you realized He didn't!

The Bible wasn't kept from anyone. People were free to enter the Church for Mass and hear the Gospel.
What would Jesus Christ say to all the Christianities out there today?
Its amazing. Our Lord was crucified; His Apostles killed as well, to bring the faith to the world, only to have some idiots with their highlighted Bibles undoing what they died for!

The Bible is a Catholic Book. The Protesters want to claim it as their own, but it ain't.
Right now, someone is doing a Bible study in the basement of Maplewood Community Center,(MN) trying to figure out the latest revelation of the faith to them via the Holy Spirit. They come to a different Christianity than OldJG. Even though OldG did the same thing (via the Holy Spirit). That's madness. That perverts the sacred scriptures.

Many people are under the impression that the Salem witch-trials were motivated and committed by Catholics ... but I believe that was not the case.

Catholics were not welcome in America at the time of the Salem witch-trials, so it was the Protestants that committed those crimes against each other.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

The Salem witch trials were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts, between February 1692 and May 1693

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salem_witch_tria...
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

Considering that the population in the first federal census of 1790 totaled 3,939,000, the Catholic presence was less than one percent, certainly not a significant force in the original 13 British colonies.

Can't say I have compared them in entirety ..But a,few times I liked things up in both .

They were the same ...except of course the apocryphal books.

Which even the Jews did no acknowledge as pure scripture.

But the ones I looked at read the same ...weird huh??

Protestants are fond of shifting the blame on to Catholics for all the brutality ... but I suggest that people in all religions were brutal.

Those who dictate "god's" RULES believe they have the RIGHTS to the kingdoms on earth AND in the hereafter.

Religion is NOT good!

You should take an afternoon off from Topix. Perhaps go for a stroll and enjoy the fresh air?

Sometimes you can be like a pesky fly. We already know you're an atheist and you don't like religion. You've definitely made your point on this forum. It doesn't appear you're going to get any Christian on here to snap at you, so you may as well call it a day.

I am the Way

God so loved the world .

What more ritual is needed

His words ..simple yet complex unless you have the Spirit to guide you .

You do not get that from statues...or holy water ..Or the pope...

Though I do like John Paul ..Francis,I think will make more changes.

But that's not the point .

We need to unite in belief in Our Saviuir who shed His blood for us..took all sin onto that Cross. And suffered horribly for it .

He rose from the dead ..He conquered the grave and Sin debt..just for US.

Despite the history we have a moment here ...We could be one ...But are not...WHY ???

God is using us,ALL to spread Jesus love around the world ...

Religion taught that humans were evil sinners. And it was those in religion who took it upon their selves to decide WHO was evil. Yet for brutalizing and killing others they didn't perceive that their selves were at all evil.

If you don't see, you don't choose to see ... and the onus is on you.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

The most infamous trials were conducted by the Court of Oyer and Terminer in 1692 in Salem Town. One contemporary writer summed the results of the trials thus:

"And now Nineteen persons having been hang'd, and one prest to death, and Eight more condemned, in all Twenty and Eight, of which above a third part were Members of some of the Churches of N. England, and more than half of them of a good Conversation in general, and not one clear'd; about Fifty having confest themselves to be Witches, of which not one Executed; above an Hundred and Fifty in Prison, and Two Hundred more acccused; the Special Commision of Oyer and Terminer comes to a period,..."

¬óRobert Calef[1]

At least five more of the accused died in prison.

The god of the Jews so loved the world he sent his only son to earth to be murdered because the god couldn't figure out any other way to communicate Christian LOVE to his followers.

You are idiots and choose to BE so!
