Yeah. hating in the name of religion is bad, but, murdering in the Name of God is as bad as it gets. Catholic church reigns supreme in THAT category.

I am speaking of the Catholic Church as it is today, not of what it did centuries ago. I'm not even a christian, yet I still respected Pope John Paul II, and I have a good feeling about Pope Francis.

No. The Protestants do NOT have as much blood on their hands. It is common knowledge in history that the victor WRITES the history. Now, since we will NEVER get an accurate body count out of the Catholic church, we CAN use another method to measure the depth of the pool of blood left by this warring group. TIME.
Catholics have been at this since Constantine - for 1700 years. Protestants have only been at it for 500 years. They have not had NEARLY as much time to catch up.
For THAT to happen, the Catholics would have to SIT OUT ANY FUTURE BATTLE for what? approximately 1,200 years? I can't see Catholics being able to restrain themselves for that long. I mean their history with pedophile priests alone, is 1,700 years long and that was only because the victims of that crime were children and, and couldn't fight back. They have just now been able to speak out - with modern media as instant as it is.
-
So. Doing the WAR math (in years):
-
2013 - 312 (Constantine War cry)= 1,701 years ago
-
2013 - 1517 (Protestant Reformation)= 496 years since Both Catholic and Protestants have been involved.
-
Which leaves 1701 (Catholic Years)- 496 (Protestant Years)= 1,205 Years.
-
Catholics have been murdering in the Name of God 1,205 years LONGER than Protestants and so will have to completely sit out a full 1,205 years of bloody wars in order to let the Protestants catch up.
I don't think that is going to happen, do you?
Now. Who say you has the most blood on their hands?
-
Doing the math, shows how unequal it is, doesn't it?

you should probably be thankful they ARE *contradicting* hojo -- for if they were gathered together under a single "pope" like the Catholic church, and chose the same method of *conversion* as the Catholic church ... the world could not contain the carnage.

The Protestants removed several books from the original Catholic bible.
Deal with it.

In Roman Catholicism, additional books were added in 1546. These books are known as the apocryphal books: Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, The Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus (Sirach), and Baruch.

Eleven Facts About Peter the Apostle

ONE: We should consider Christ’s commission to Peter. This is often very embarrassing to Catholics, because Christ commissioned Peter to become chief minister to the CIRCUMCISED, not to uncircumcised Gentiles.(Gal.2:7-8)

TWO: Paul specifically told the Gentile Romans that HE had been chosen to be their Apostle, not Peter.(Rom.15:16)

THREE: We are told by Paul himself that it was he - not Peter - who was going to found a church at Rome.(Rom.1:11)

FOUR: We find Paul not only wanting to establish a church at Rome, but he emphatically tells us that his policy was not to build upon another foundation.(Rom.15:20)

FIVE: At the end of Paul’s Epistle to the Romans he greets no fewer than 28 different individuals, but never mentions Peter once! See Romans 16 - read the whole chapter! Remember, Paul greeted these people in 55 or 56 A.D. Why didn’t he mention Peter?- Peter simply wasn’t there!

You, guest, can believe, think, editorialize and spread all of the Protestant "propaganda" that you can "dig up" on the internet----"It makes (no difference) to me or ANY of the other Catholics on this forum or to the (over 1 billion Catholics around the world. WE ALL "know the TRUTH"--and it is NOT in your bible only "National Inquirer" (trash personal opinions) NOR is it in your "mis-interpretation of the bible or in the "making up" your own "distorted and perverted" Protestant history book of (myths). I/WE as Catholics will remain in Jesus Christ (at Daily Mass, the eucharist, the word of God, the Sacraments and in "adoration prayer) worshiping, adhering to and committed (each day) to the TRUTH of the TRUE interpretation of the bible and over 2000 years of the PROVEN TRUTH of the gospel of Jesus, in and through His One (AND ONLY) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church.! YOU, can do what you want! I couldn't care less!!!----except to pray for your misguided, condemning and judgemental hearts, minds and souls--(each day at Mass)

Just what Jesus wanted -- a church with zero accountability, but with lots and lots of excuses.

Sure, sure, that was Jesus alright?

And Jesus really didn't mean it when he said... "... for ye shall know them by their deeds."

That was all about the other guy. Jesus always taught that ethics and morals should take a back seat to ritual and dogma. "Go pray loudly"

Says you. Actually the Puritan Protestants allowed the Natives to live in the colonies protected from Spain out west. It was only after this the treaties were all broken, by agents of Rome in Washington DC, Mary Land. The Jesuits continue to persecute the Natives still today.

a delusional one writes -- "Actually the Puritan Protestants allowed the Natives to live in the colonies protected from Spain out west."

Can you tell us where these Spanish were "out west" in 1620?

And where are these Jesuits who are still persecuting natives today?

I know, reality is something to be made up on the fly, but we need the details too. You can't make up your own reality within the important details.

I don't get it. Why does your little god discriminate against most of humanity, such as over a billion Chinese?

In fact, the vast majority of people practice the same religion as their parents -- the religion in which they were indoctrination as children.

Why not a BIG God who isn't arbitrary and doesn't discriminate against humans who happen to be born to the wrong parents in the wrong place?

I may be a fool, but I don't buy the notion of the highest power in the universe being petty, arbitrary, and driven by weak human emotions.

After all, shouldn't such a god be greater than its creation - instead of having the same weaknesses and bigotry?

I think so.
