-same thing that even you catholics do.lol
we both spoke out against a belief that makes us unpopular
-it wouldn't be right to be a part of Christ and also be considered popular. lol.
seriously, to follow Jesus in my opinion, also means we need to prepare to be hated. I know we all bicker on here, but if we all claim to follow the Lord, then we all will be rejected just like Him. its happening now in this country. It doesn't matter if you're Catholic or Protestant. They'll reject us just because we follow the Lord. Secularism is really starting to take root and it doesn't look good for the future Christians. They will not care which one of us believes in the assumption of Mary. We will be thrown in the same category for following Jesus Christ.
"I expect to die in a hospital bed; my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square"
Archbishop of Chicago in a speech last year.
The Catholic Church isn't hated for following Christ.
