If you don't know by now after 2,000 years who all the players were in the bible and how they fit biologically with each other it makes the whole story dysfunctional.
You say brothers meant cousins but you have no information to back up your claim. Maybe James and others mentioned as brothers were really NEIGHBORS kids and not cousins or brothers at all.(lol)
2,000 years and no one has a clue who the real characters were that were written about in the bible.
Its almost like a Shakespeare play where all the characters seem to come to life, even though they never existed.
Why do you care, Jesus didn't exist as far as you're concerned.

Like I said before: You still don't get it!! OK Michael, stay hostile, stay angry, hold on to your hatred, keep firing your anti-catholic antagonistic (blanks) until you finally go out and buy that AK-47. Then you can do what the elementary school assassin did when he killed 20+ children in the same kind of rage hostility and anger. You can start "blasting" in Catholic Churches against "preists and bishops" like you "spray your blank bullets" on this forum, against Clay, Anthony, Regina and myself. "NO DIFFERENCE!!! No wonder you left the Catholic Church!!--No wonder you are not a Christian!! Is it NOW an agnostic or an atheist! Whatever it is Michael--you have some "serious anger-hatred issues!
Hojo...

Your faith and morals are not morally superior all others.

In fact, all of what we commonly call REALITY point to anything but.

It is absurd how you stand against Reformation American ideals, yet enjoy them yourself.

It is absurd to keep defending criminal bankers and perverts like Cardinal Law and his Vatican comrades -- as morally superior, guided by Jesus, blah, blah...

Get over the persecution stuff. No one "Hates." Look at it from this prospective -- the RCC moral superiority thing is great comedy club material.

Why not be happy with a good church, and not deny others the honor of using the term? Look in the mirror!

Christianity (from the Ancient Greek: &#935;&#961;&#953; &#963;&#964;&#953; &#945;&#957;&#972; &#962; Christianos[1] and the Latin suffix -itas) is a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion[2] based on the life and teachings of Jesus as presented in canonical gospels and other New Testament writings.[3] It also considers the Hebrew Bible, which is known as the Old Testament, to be canonical. Adherents of the Christian faith are known as Christians.[1]
The mainstream Christian belief is that Jesus is the Son of God, fully divine and fully human and the savior of humanity. Because of this, Christians commonly refer to Jesus as Christ or Messiah.[4] Jesus' ministry, sacrificial death, and subsequent resurrection are often referred to as the Gospel, meaning "Good News" (from the Greek: &#949;&#8016;&#945 ;&#947;&#947;&#941 ;&#955;&#953;&#959 ;&#957; euangélion). In short, the Gospel is news of God the Father's eternal victory over evil,[5] and the promise of salvation and eternal life for all people, through divine grace.[6]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity
When Christianity came to a region and people became believers then a CHURCH was formed from those Believers.
but hey, anthony dont believe me, this is only common sense.
something that you robots are not allowed to pursue or possess.lol
Who cares what wiki says? And if you're really sola scriptura you'll produce the bible verse that says Jesus founded Christianity.

He founded His Church. He didn't found thousands of denominations. There existed only one Church until the East/West schism in AD 1054. All of history confirms this. Period. Amen.

ITS NOT BIBICAL. THE MINUTE YOU BUILD A IDOL BOW TO THEM AND PRAY YOU HAVE BECOME AN ABOMINATION TO ALMIGHTY GOD.
The idea that Mary had other children was invented about 200 years ago. All of your protestant ancestors said she was ever-virgin and they knew the bible a lot better than you or preston, so don't try to pin it only on the Catholic and Orthodox Churches.

Still got it wrong- RCC Supe--just like always. Denying others of using the term church?? What-where-who is denying anyone?? You just "keep making things up" ---do you lay awake at night "dreaming these lies uyp' or is it just in your day-to-day nature!! What you "fail to comprehend" is that all Christians are our ecumentical brothers and sisters in Christ. Jesus established, formed and inititated His One True Catholic Church over 2000 years ago in Matthew 16:13-21. it was His ONE TRUE CHURCH ---but not the "only" Church (Lutheran,Baptist, Episcopalian, Methodist, and so on), We as Catholics, respect and acknowledge there faith in Jesus Christ just like (many of them) reciprocate with us.---So tell me "where are we Catholics denying others the term church. Your vengeance, hatred and hostility for us Catholics and Jesus Christ Himself is corrupting and polluting your mind, heart and soul!!!!

I have to disagree with you and Preston.

Read Luke 1

Mary's Visit to Elizabeth

39And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judah;

40And entered into the house of Zachariah, and greeted Elizabeth.

41And it came to pass, that, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit:

42And she spoke out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.

43And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

44For, lo, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

45And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

Mary's Song

46And Mary said, My soul does magnify the Lord,

47And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.

48For he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

49For he that is mighty has done to me great things; and holy is his name.

50And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

51He has showed strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

52He has put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

53He has filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he has sent empty away.

54He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

55As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his descendants forever.

56And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.

If we could only coax Jesus to come down from heaven for just a few minutes and clear up the wrong information that catholics are telling.
Why would any scriptures say.....
1) my cousins are all with me.
2) Jesus says, has anyone seen my cousins?
3) John Baptist say..where are Jesus cousins.
4) 12 apostles would say....lets go to Jesus cousins house.
5) Jesus says my cousins are going on a holiday.
6) Blind man says I am going to the store with Jesus cousins.
7) mary says, jesus your cousins are here again!
ENOUGH with the cousins!!
BUSTED! AGAIN!
So-called "Christians" love to read more into the text than necessary.

Protestant clergymen don't take this oath.
Married protestant clergy have sex with congregants which is adultery. Unmarried protestant clergy have sex with congregants which is fornication. They both do it at a far higher rate than priests who break their vow of celibacy. I assume it means they're breaking their 'oaths', if such oaths exist in protestantism, I don't know.

Again, the question is; if protestant clergymen/women have sex outside of marriage and get the clap, is it not as bad as a gay priest who gets AIDS?

I mean, you were the one who made the post about sexually transmitted diseases in the first place LTM. Why can't you deal with the sin in your own communities?

Yes, but He performed the miracle anyway. And remember, she told the servant to do whatever He asks. She also tells us to do whatever He asks.

Why do you mislead others?

THis is where honesty comes into play LTM - let's see how well you can use it.
Sometimes it is better to stay silent on the things you don't know.

I understand.

Honesty.

Sorry 'bout that. In defending Mary from the onslaught of attacks from ignorant pretenders like LTM you got caught in the cross-fire.

I hope your statement was meant to rebuke LTM's stupidity stating that Mary was embarrassed by Jesus.

Mary was embarrassed. Mary took a long time to figure out Jesus was her Saviour.

I guess He would've been better off having you two around to keep everybody straight.

Incredible.
