Born by chance a Muslim, born by chance an orthodox born by chance a Jew, each taught by their parents their way is right.
Who am I too judge? Love thy neighbor as thy self.
I treat everyone with respect, don't care what religious belief they belong to or the color of their skin.
To many people their religion is the most important issue in their lives, and to state that their god is an illusion shows terrible disrespect to them.

I admit that I am disrespectful when I am on the forum. There's no question about that issue.

But they are also here to belittle my Atheism ... so on a forum disrespect works both ways.

I am not in their churches bugging them, so if they choose to come on a forum, I suggest that they should expect disrespect.

I expect to be disrespected and look forward to being disrespected, as that is part and parcel of debate.

I know quite a bit, but not all of it. Why shouldn't we try to learn all the teachings if there available?
True, many Catholics don't have a clue on the how's and why's of the faith. If they understood, they wouldn't leave. Once you learn it, its difficult if not impossible, to justify being a Christian and NOT being in the Catholic Church. And its laughable to try and debunk Catholicism using their very own sacred scriptures. Yet, that's what you and the others attempt. Like little pesky demons. So scram "Tommy". The Tomalingo. The Thomasmeister, "doubting Thomas". "Tomamania,'disgruntled that people are still Catholic.... doesn't like the ruuules, had to leeeeave" lol.
eh, I'll say a sincere prayer for you Mike when I go to Mass today.
The cannon law promulgated January 25 1983, what was it about?

What does cannon law 1111pertain to? What about cannon 2222? How about cannon 1331?

If you don't, even know the laws that govern your church, how can you claim to say you know Jesus? What is the point of thousands of policies and rules and regulations if you, and your own church leaders can't rhyme them off, and only learn about them for the first time ONLY when you look the, up...(lol)

If catholics are really sincere about their faith they would take the time to learn the rules that govern their lives. But they won't, because they don't really care.

BUSTED again!

You should be glad I am here!

The original church-fathers wrote the new testament.

They stated that the Jews were the enemies of Jesus, and on that note they slaughtered the Jews century after century.

If you don't believe as they believed ... then stop stating that you are a Catholic ... because you are NOT an original died in the wool Catholic.

You have made Catholicism over in your own image and are now willing to pretend that the original Catholics were lovable teddy bears as you perceive is YOUR supposed lovable nature.

I suggest you stop being ridiculous.

Pondering on it(heaven or hell), generally makes one go after beliefs, and substitute reality for what we imagine don't you think?
So you maintain that you are Catholic, but don't ponder on the idea that you will go to heaven???

You are not at all credible in what you post.

But Anthony they have cake! Pop, Candy and Ice cream were in the Garden of Eden. The bible told LTM so. lol While people in the Early church did meet in homes in secret beca. Hebrews says to obey those who are over you and do not give them grief. Paul clearly tells Timothy not to od they could all individually decipher the true meaning on their own and there really isnt any need for any preacher at all. There are no false teachers its whatever Jesus tells them individually. Some have ,made Jn 3:16 all that is necessary. Each person incorporates their own values into that which they choose to believe. It is not unlike the Atheist who becomes a moralist in an immoral world. Al Capone or other Mob bosses would argue that they provide a good and a service and it is perfectly justifiable to murder someone if they cheat those who are cheating everyone else. Collateral damage is par for the course.
The bible doesn;t say alot of things. There were always judges and a source of authority. Whenever 2 or more are gathered is an old Jewish saying or iditom and inferred 2 or more people with reconginzed authority who call upon the Lord for a decision. As an example you could use the casting of lots to determine who to chose to replace Judas. It wasnt just 2 neophytes or false teachers with no basis authority other than a self proclamation. I have used Charles Manson and Jim Jones lets throw in Peter Popov another Charlaton. Ok here are 3 people for real that proclaim they are ministers. Which of these is the real deal? Again the book of Hebrews does not say obey what you are inclined to believe the book says. There was always an authority. Judas gives us the first example of betrayal and and first hand account that there will be more. The Old Testament is rife with rebellion and hypocrisy. Those in charge will not always practice what they preach. The church and leaders sometimes need rebuke, but the answer is not to just run down the street and start your own, because there will always be rebellion, wrong acts committed and betrayal. Correction is what is needed. The Church is not divided along ethnic lines. The council at Jersusalem nor those that followed did not ask for the approval of the lay community. The Apostles AND Priests met and conversed and made a decision. It is not the place for each individual to become an authority. There is no possible way to ever have unity with that model. How long do you think a business would function if everyone was the ceo with equal authority? Its insanity!
The Church is the ground and Pillar of the truth. He who hears you hears me. He who does not hear you does not hear me. If you cannot come to peace with someone who has committed a wrong then you go to the church and it will decide. Will there be those like King David who abused his authority? WIll be there be those who need rebuke as Peter himself did and Popes have been by Saints? Yes Did Moses get rebuked? Yes Did that mean they no longer had any authority? Peter calls himself a fellow presybyter or priest. So from that we are to infer an Apostle had no more weight than some layman? Really? Bishops are Piests,
I remember when I went to catholic church when MOST catholics use to go to mass. When we went up for communion we kneeled in front of the altar showing respect. Today no one kneels down, everyone just shuffles along in a line standing and slouching with your hand out. No respect.
Today less than 1 in 4 catholics in america goes to sunday mass as required. Less than 2%, that is right! 2% of catholics attend daily mass that is offered at many Catholic churches in most towns and cities in america.
If catholics claim their church is the most important thing in their lives, yet 98% of catholics won't even make the sacrifice or find the time to attend daily mass.
What a bunch of hipicrites!
No respect anymore!

If you haven't been perfected by your obsession with Jesus ... then rest assured that your case is hopeless.

Otherwise you would now be sin-free and off in heaven with all the others that have been freed from sin and eternal suffering.

Religion is BUNK, and that includes your Protestant mental JUNK!

The point of posting to them is not to get God to love them, silly.
So the fact that you supposedly eat Jesus' actual flesh and blood means nothing to Jesus?

What's the point of being in a "one true church" if membership does not imply you are more favored, or loved, or whatever you what to call it?
