-well then, I suppose it all has to do with what is offensive to you.
-religious bigotry, hating in the name of religion, denying the rights of others in the name of religion, hypocricy etc.
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.
-Catholicism is the MOST offensive religion to me, as it was early on murdering in the Name of God as a means of converting people to the religion.
-the protestants have just as much blood on their hands as any other group. there were no Catholics in Salem.
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?
-so. pray tell, what *is* offensive to you?
-unequal treatment of various groups of citizens under the law, for one thing. religious supremacy, religious bigotry
Unequal treatment is highly offensive to me.
The rest of the world has been bathed in blood attempting to defend itself from the Catholic War machine.
but that's just me.
doing the math.
simple math really.
anybody could have done it.
if they had wanted to get to the truth.
