You really show why the Bible teaches:
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

A real misogynist, huh?
Well,(I) GOD made women...and I'm not ashamed to be one.
(2) Abraham disagreed with Sarah about Ishmael...God told him to do what SARAH said.
(3) Read Luke. A number of women traveled with Jesus and the disciples and ministered
to them. These same women went to Jerusalem, watched at the cross, and
went to the tomb with His body. They were the first to see the resurrected
Jesus, and carried His message to the disciples, who refused to believe
them. They were with the Apostles in the Upper Room and were filled with
the Holy Ghost.
(4) Paul was teaching the formerly pagan Corinthians, when he cautioned the women to keep
silence in the church, rather than talking aloud during the ministry, asking their husbands
questions.
Paul acknowledges women in ministry...even recognizing Phoebe as pastor of a church.
You should read up on women...especially since one of them birthed Jesus to begin with.
Good to see you Kay .
Hope you are doing better . GOD bless you both

There is more disagreement in your church than an other...
WASHINGTON, D.C., February 20, 2014 ( LifeSiteNews.com )– A worldwide poll of self-described Catholics shows significant disagreement with Catholic doctrine among many Church members.
In a poll commissioned by the Spanish television station Univision, majorities of 12,038 Catholics in 12 countries expressed beliefs against Catholic doctrine on issues like abortion, same-sex “marriage,” and contraceptive use. The Church opposes all three.
According to the poll, while Pope Francis received 87 percent approval, 57 percent of Catholics thought abortion should be legal “in some cases,” with nine percent declaring support any time. Seventy-eight percent of respondents support contraception use, 66 percent back same-sex “marriage,” and 51 percent believe women should be priests.
Thirty-eight percent of respondents believe divorce and remarriage outside of the Church means a person is living in sin, and 47 percent believe priests should be allowed to marry.
...when the followers aren't following, it means one thing....Dysfunction.

...How can the church operate with rules/regulations when the followers would rather be doing something else.

......the catholic church is in chaos.

Q: Do you agree or disagree with Catholic Church policy that says:“An individual who has divorced and remarried outside of the Catholic Church, is living in sin which prevents them from receiving Communion”?
58 percent of Catholics overall disagree with church teaching on divorce, but 75 percent of African Catholics agree with this policy.

They are free to "go and join" a Protestant Church (down the street) where they can (take a poll, vote, take another poll , then vote again, have arguments, debates, take another poll and vote again until they eventually "split" and add to the already 42,200 + inconsistent, chaotic and contradicting " hodge podge" of editorialized bible only opinions!!!!!!

Quote Scripture that teaches the opposite of the following and you have a fallible Bible..

Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea:I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea: That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.

She was a servant and helped many....

Servant: a person employed by another, esp. to perform domestic duties.
2. a person in the service of another.
3. a person employed by the government: a public servant.

Show me the word "pastor" in that definition...

You have as much disagreement in your denomination as any other..

Q: Do you think that Catholic priests should be allowed to marry?

Catholics in Europe and the U.S. say priests should be allowed to marry. Latin America divides more closely, with Mexicans far more conservative than others.

A other example:
A student takes a large block of text from a book and quotes it in his paper word-for-word. The student puts a footnote into the paper indicating where the text came from; but, the student does not give any indication in the text that he or she is quoting directly from the paper.

....The TRUE teachings of the Catholic Church is the TRUE, correct and proper interpretation with regard to what the bible has taught for over 1500 years in reference to the celibacy of priests and that is what the Church teaches and that is why 1.2 Billion a Catholic continue to remain Catholic.....Those that don't like it and don't agree---can go join one of 42,200 contradicting " hodgepodge" denominations where "each persons" (PERSONAL OPINION is the final authority in starting another denomination.....42,200 today---42,478 next week!!!!!!!

it is a shame that someone like HOJO has to resort to lying just to prove that his church is the ONLY church.,

The New Testament was recorded, copied and circulated just like the Old Testament. The Israelites had the highest standards when copying the OT. Not one letter could have an error or the scroll would be tossed.
The apostles, Paul, Jude and other followers of Christ wrote the text we now have in a book. God has preserved His Word. Christ's gospel is still being spread around the world by "protestant" believers. There are areas of the world that have no access to a Catholic church but, they are being provided with the Bible in their language, both written and audio.
The New Testament isn't a book, its a Sacrament. "Take this all you and drink, for this is the blood of the New Testament (covenant) Mark 14:24. Luke 22:20
Nowhere in Scripture does Jesus say the New Testament is a collection of Books. Its the Eucharist. That is straight sola Scripture; no Bible study- interpreting involved.

Wrong. Paul clearly teaches us to study the Word.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Paul did teach to hold fast to traditions at taught. Jesus also spoke of traditions.

Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye

1 Timothy 4 : 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.

If the above scripture is hard for you, then maybe you weren'tmeant to understand or "hear" the Word of the Lord.

If your fathers interpreted the scriptures correctly then why did they impose on their followers what Paul taught against? The fact you can now eat mean on Friday shows your church evolves and changes. Christ's Words never change.

The KJV of the Bible was not compiled from your Bible. The only thing the two books had in common was the Volgate. King James sent men throughout Europe and Asia to gather original and copied text to compile the Bible.

Say what you want. The Catholics I know use the same "Protestant" Bible I do, the KJV.
