After leaving their different Sunday services one Sunday afternoon, a little Baptist boy and a Catholic girl met while walking down a dirt road.

Since they were both going the same way, they decided that they'd walk together. The road had flooded and there was no way to get across without getting wet. "I tell you what I think I'll do," said the little girl. "I'm gonna take off all my clothes and hold them over my head and wade across." "That's a good idea," replied the little boy. "I'm going to do the same thing with my suit."

So they both undressed and waded across to the other side without getting their clothes wet. When they reached the other side the little girl looked carefully at the boy and with much surprise remarked... "You know, until this moment I never realized just how much difference there really is between a Baptist and a Catholic."

Based on your attitude alone and taking into account the saying, "Birds of a feather flock together," I could only assume that this Ron Paul character would only assist in deteriorating whatever moral fabric is left of our nation, considering that even you refuse to merely show respect to others and their opinions and/or beliefs. If you campaigned for this Ron Paul character professionally, I'm sure you'd be fired.
I will admit this, though. If this Ron Paul character thinks, acts, reacts, and speaks, anything like you do, I'd love to watch him in a legitimate, political debate!
Have a wonderful day.

I don't agree with your interpretations. I could say as well that you don't understand what you read. As far as your advice, don't think that is Scriptural either.
I am not contesting your statements about the Sabbath. Again, me thinks you need help deciphering.
Not all come from Catholic roots. The CHurch was here long before Catholicism picked up and twisted the Word.
WWhere do you put yourself in this maze? The only cult with the truth?
Nothing comes from Catholic ROOTS.
Catholicism is a BRANCH upon a much larger Tree.

Protestants are a Branch upon the Catholic branch.

I do not know if you have the ability to Picture a Tree in your mind, but a large Tree has many main Branches that come out of its trunk, these large/main branches have many smaller branches coming out of them.

It is possible on ONE BRANCH of a tree to have Lemons, Oranges, Grapefruit, Limes, Tangerines and probably a few I missed.
Although each of these will be on their own Separate branch, they will also be upon the same branch.

This is how it is with Protestants and Catholics.
The Branch as it comes off of the Tree of Religions of the World is the teachings of Paul, which has little branches but the Main Branch of the teachings of Paul becomes Catholicism. This is a very large Branch and has Many smaller Branches coming off of it.
One of these smaller branches that come off of the Branch of Catholicism is the Protestants.

The Roots are a LONG way back down the Tree.
The Catholics claim all Christians that worship upon Sunday as their Children (branches of their Limb), as they (the Catholic Church) claim to have Made Sunday as the day of Worship, They back this up with documents and Laws that they enacted declaring the first day of the Week (Sunday) to be the sabbath as the Mark of their Authority upon the earth, proving that they(the catholic Church) is god upon the earth, able to change what GOD created at the Creation.
They actually say these things,
They do not HIDE that they made Sunday the Sabbath, they CLAIM IT as the mark of their Authority, and claim all that worship upon Sunday as their Children, daughters, or smaller limbs upon their Branch.

A large Branch of a tree that comes out of the Trunk has many other Branches that come out of it.

This is what Protestant is as compared to Catholic.
A Smaller branch that comes from the larger.

Something you can not even Begin to understand is the TREE that has its roots in GOD has at minimum 12 MAIN Branches, Catholicism is but ONE MAIN BRANCH. There are 11 other MAIN BRANCHES.

Your tree of Life/Religion does not have Branches I think. If you were to Draw GOD as the Roots of A tree, and Jesus as the Trunk, and your religion as the branch your Tree would not look very much like a tree at all.

Try it, Draw a Tree with GOD as the Roots and Jesus as the Trunk.
It sometimes help to look at a picture instead of Words.

Draw a Tree, GOD is the Roots, and Christ is the trunk.

I live in Washington State.

I just walked to the Store on my way through the parking lot I see a Cigar wrapper, the plastic end of a Cigar and a Pile of Tobacco,

Someone just rolled a blunt.

And I think to myself except for the Litter and maybe they drove under the influence,

Rolling blunts is Legal.
lol :)
And I do not smoke pot Anymore.

Rolling a Blunt sitting in your car is LEGAL in Washington State, as long as you do not Drive Under the Influence.

I get your analogy already. I just don't think it works. I don't consider myself religious. I consider myself a Gentile grafted in to an already existing branch of Christ. Hope that helps.
