Mary isn't worshipped.
We pray for her intercession.
#416720 Jan 19, 2013
Its amazing we actually need to explain that. They rely so much on slander and bearing false witness.
#416721 Jan 19, 2013
How is it slander when people post Catholic links to verify the claim?
You are the one slandering Mary by claiming a blatant lie -- made up by the Vatican to help Hitler and Mussolini in their invasion of Russia -- is somehow true.
These mystical lies about Mary might be cute, until one actually looks at the details.
Praising whose who used the name of Mary to back the invasion of Russia and the murder of millions is something few Americans would do.
BTW -- it backfired. Communism expanded because the Vatican side lost.

1... How does a individual poster erase a post on Topix?
2... No Protestant came to Mary's defense" for one simple reason. No one said what you claim.
3... Catholic morality 101 = lie whenever one pleases and claim something absurd, like "he erased the post."
When the immoral, Mary-hating buffoon figures out how to erase a Topix post by himself, I hope he lets us know.
PS -- In 1917, Mary NEVER said what the foolish Vatican claims. It was a lie to give moral support to Mussolini and Hitler in the early stages of their invasion of Russia.
Victory seemed assured in 1941, at the time the Church Marian lie was released.
Millions of innocent Russian peasants died in the next few months, but then the weather changed. Oops.

If your religion requires the use of diplomatic immunity to obstruct justice for sexually abused orphans, you might want to think about getting out of it.
#416725 Jan 19, 2013
I have cited the quote a number of times. You can easily find it.
Look up "Second Secret Of Fatima"
Again, it all sounds so dreamy until one actually looks at the facts.
This was supposedly given to the Vatican in 1917, but wasn't released until 1941 -- after the fact.
"You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pope Pius XI."
Mary? World War 2?
All miraculously announced after the fact! Why?
The RCC uses Mary like a pimp. The pimp dresses her up and then uses her in an immoral way for his gain.
If you read the full text, you will see an obvious attempt to please Mussolini during the early stages of the invasion of Russia.
Today, the same disgusting creeps fight against sexually abused orphans. Enough of this BS from supposedly superior the 'ONE-TRUE' church of Hell.

If you hate the USA so much and love Catholic America so much, I have good news for you.
There are millions of folks in the Catholic south who would love to trade places with you.
There is nothing standing in your way! Walk your talk.
Ummmm? I thought not. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
#416727 Jan 19, 2013
You could easily find it for yourself (Second Secret of Fatima), but here's another one for you to run from.
How does an individual claim diplomatic immunity unless invoked by an institutional authority.
Roman Catholic Church 101...
Q... What institutional authority uses diplomatic immunity to keep individuals from testifying in court cases involving sexually abused orphans?
A... Jesus only appointed Church, Perfect teachings on morals.
You can find that too if you tried.
But somehow, they never lift a finger to find the actual facts. Shocker!!!!!!
#416728 Jan 19, 2013
Catholic Girl, please read the post again.
I NEVER SAID DESCRIBED MARY THAT WAY.
THE VATICAN DID SO WHEN IT PUT SHAMEFUL WORDS IN HER MOUTH.
Words supposedly given in 1917, but not released until later.
Did anyone lie? If not, then PRETEND YOUR OWN MOTHER used the same words and see how it sounds.
DUH!!!!!!!!!! Would YOU say anything like that to humanity?
Neither did Mary.
#416729 Jan 19, 2013
How quickly true believers set the facts aside in order to make sense of their lies.
Memo to "spiritually superior" Catholics in denial....
When you come here under a banner claiming religious superiority, then expect to be BUSTED.
#416730 Jan 19, 2013
why don't you read the link Clay,
This is who the catholic church has representing Mary the Mother of Jesus.
It was so strongly written in the paganistic mind the image of the Mother Goddess with a child in her arms, that when the days of the great falling away came, the portrait of Isis and the child Horus was accepted not only in popular opinion, but by formal episcopal sanction, as the portrait of the Virgin and son. Representations of Isis and her child were often enclosed in framework of flowers. This practice too was applied to Mary who is often pictured the same way, as those who have studied Medieval Art well known.
The Egyptian goddess Isis was often represented as standing on the crescent moon with twelve stars surrounding her head. There is another woman mentioned with twelve stars in the Bible, but its not Mary. But it was also adopted to Mary (left). This adoption was to satisfy the superstitions of the heathen mind. And even as the pagans had statues of Goddess, so likewise, statues were made of Mary, even though the scriptures forbid such a practice! In some cases, the very same statues had been worshipped as Isis, were simply renamed as Mary and the Christ child- and the old worship continued! "When Christianity triumphed", says one writer, "these painting and figures became those of the Madonna and child without any break in continuity: No archaeologist, in fact, can now tell whether some of these objects represent the one or the other." Not only has this deceived them but it is deceiving and uniting the world.

Kykkos Mother of God
The original of this icon is attributed to St. Luke (the Apostle). It is reputed to have traveled extensively before it came to rest in Cyprus where it is credited with numerous miracles and healings. Copies of this icon became commonplace in Russian in the 17th century.

Platytera (“More Spacious than the Heavens”) Mother of God
The Theotokos “More Spacious then the Heavens” is of the type, Our Lady of the Sign. The Theotokos is the “sign” foretold in Isaiah 7:14:“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; behold, a virgin shall conceive in the womb, and shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Emmanuel.” The Mother of God is shown in the Orans position, that is a position of prayer or supplication. The Platytera is placed in the apse of Orthodox churches as an intermediary, supplicating God on our behalf.

Here is a picture of how Catholic children are taught about Mary.
Here are some of the actual words behind that picture, uttered by Mary in 1917, during World War 1 foretelling World War 2:
#1.... Where bad people go -- "Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form, like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames..."
#2... "To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pope Pius XI."
Would Jesus really sent this Mary......
.. to give that message to the world?
What kind of sicko would put those words in Mary's mouth and why?
The RCC, War, and Politics
#416734 Jan 19, 2013
Prove that Fatima is not an RCC "infallible" (not "official") teaching.
Please provide a list of the RCC's amazing "unchangeable infallible teachings" to show us that Fatima is not on there.

Song of the Angels by Bouguereau
Today, while much of the world marks the new beginning of the calendar year, the Church commemorates the great solemnity of the Mother of God.
What does this mean?
That the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mother of God means that the child— conceived in her womb by the power of the Holy Spirit, carried in her body for nine months, and born into this world— is God. As such, this celebration highlights the pivotal truth of the Church's Faith- that God has, in Jesus Christ, accepted a human nature, chosen to be born into this world as we have all been born into this world, and has lived a real, human life.
In doing so, God has accepted the full implication of what is means to be human, including the experiences of suffering and death.
"Why" God did this is what the Scriptures are all about- from start to finish, from Genesis to Revelation. In fact, the Bible is not just some kind of spiritual "self help" book or just a collection of ancient literature- the Bible is the story of why God accepts a human nature in Christ.
