So maybe the Eastern church is the true church?
Yes, we believe the eastern universal Church is the true Church too. The title of this thread is misleading. The Vatican never said "Roman" Catholic Church only true Church..

Manipulated, twisted and exaggerated by the author, writer and the media....which is "nothing new" to any of us Catholics!!!
For Catholics to teach that they own the one and only universal truth is a twist and exaggeration of gigantic proportions ... but that doesn't BOTHER you!

You keep disregarding the fact that the Jews first taught that THEY owned the one and only universal truth that stated THEY were GOD's chosen few.

You are adamant of attitude, and that is what keeps you stuck in the mental bondage of your self-serving egoistical cult.

It's proof positive that the creator wanted other animals to suffer for nothing other than the fact that "he" enjoyed watching them suffer.

With just reason, the study of religion drove many people into raving lunatics.

Yes!----Less than 2%... however, it is anti-catholic hostile liberals like you that exaggerate and distort the TRUTH making it appear that ALL priests are pedophiles.
Homosexuals are NOT pedophiles. It was your own hierarchy that taught that craziness.

Now they are changing their own stories.

Experts reject homosexuality as risk factor

(“Neither homosexual nor heterosexual orientation is a risk factor,” they said,“but rather, disordered or confused sexual orientation is a risk factor.”)

Yet you believe it IS fair for Catholics to teach that all who are not of the Catholic faith will end up in eternal hell.

You have twisted your own mentality to believe that Catholicism is a JUST religion, based on the one and only universal truth.

And that is why you become angry and defensive when the Protestants insist that THEY own universal truth. You don't like the idea that they the same game as you play.

You ignorant and arrogant right-fighters refuse to FACE your own folly.

Only in English speaking countries is it referred to as Easter. The whole world doesn't speak English. In point of fact, the Church calls it the Passover of the Lord and the Paschal Mystery. In most non-English speaking countries it would be called Pascha or some variation.
Easter is yet another Christian farce.

Easter. The name was adopted for the Christian Pascal festival from O.E. eastre, a heathen festival held at the vernal equinox in honour of the Teutonic goddess of dawn, called Eastre by Bede, which fell about the same time.

So ... now you are saying that anything Catholic is acceptable to the god that before Catholicism existed ... loved only the Jews as his chosen few???

Your sermons on the mount of your ego are sorely lacking in any semblance of common sense!

Theology is ALL based on wackyism.

If Jesus founded the Catholic religion "without the help of John the baptist" who supposedly baptized him into Catholicism ... why didn't Jesus crown his self as being the first pope???

Silly men with their conflicting silly theologies ... had nothing better to do with their time.

The national news story from just a few years ago.

http://www.actupny.org/YELL/catholicpriests.h...

.... A poll was done by some catholic priests, and 6 of 10 priests knew of at least one priest who died of Aids.

....Father John Keenan runs Trinity House clinic in Chicago for priests and he concludes most priests contacted Aids through same sex. He treated one priest who infected 8 other priests.

.....Bishop Emerson Moore died of Aids.

Fonzi, don't point your fingers at others when there is lots going wrong in your own church.

Cop out answer. but yet you hold the bible accountable. Do you think it is inconsistent for someone who "lacks belief" in God to work against God's existence by attempting to show that God doesn't exist?

What was the purpose of God, 80 million years ago when there was no mankind, but there were plenty of dinasours, and sea urchins? What would Jesus and the holy spirit be doing then?

There is no record of a cataclysmic event that destroyed mankind prior to 4,000 B.C. And if there were, surely some of the survivors would have passed this information down to generations to follow. children are brainwashed in godless public schools all across the world, with evolution, which is taught as if it were a fact. This is evil. It is evil to deny students the Biblical account of creationism. The Word of God makes infinite more sense than the fairytale of evolution.
One of the simplest and best proofs that evolution is a joke, is the FACT that there is NO recorded history prior to 4,000 B.C. The world's history is CLEARY defined by SIX world powers since time began: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. Since Rome's fall in 476 A.D., there have been no world-powers (many super-powers; but, no world-powers). At the time of Moses, Egypt ruled the world. The Israelites were used as slave labor by Pharaoh to build the pyramids. Before Egypt, there is absolutely nothing recorded in history about a world-power.

What was God thinking when he created this??

Men of religion wrote that "idle hands are the work of the devil."

So the men busied and dizzied their selves by writing page after page of junk religion to feed to the already stupefied humans with huge egos and no substance whatsoever TO the easily lead egos.

Why you would not ask questions of your own dogmas ... yet dis the dogmas of others as being EVIL?

That nasty habit is proof positive that you keep feeding your own egos the slop on which the egos learned from experience to ingest as being HOLY food.

Bunkology.

Stick your self with a pin ... let out the hot air ... and get REAL!

You don't know the future or even if it exists ... and I suggest that is as close to truth as any of you will ever grow.

Who's arguing?

Science of such matters is based on theory, which is assumption. Old theories continually are outdated by new theories.

Good science is based on theory.

Religion is based on nothing more than theory yet its promoters claims to KNOW universal truth.

That is the difference.

Because you were taught there is a god you are assuming that what you were taught was based on truth.

To brag that you know there is a god is foolhardy, because words written by ancient foolhardy men is not proof of anything other than that they learned to write words.

Any bozo can write words.

To claim to know universal truth is simply nonsensical gibberish.
