That's a lie because I in fact called you out on it. Now go grab your beeds and start reciting prayers.
Grab my "beeds"? LOL, don't shoot the messenger, chuck.
You're unable to conduct a conversation without immediately resorting to name-calling. You don't like the fact that I pointed it out so now you're attacking me. Fine, it's no more than you've done to every other Catholic on this forum. I'm in good company!

Christians believe that no other REAL savior was ever sent to earth by the creator until 2000 years ago.

That shouldn't make any sense to even the most dim-witted humans stuck in the bondage of religion.

New evidence collected during two expeditions to Guinea in West Africa supports that theory, which has been one of several leading explanations for why humans became bipedal somewhere between three and six million years ago.

I understand fundamentalist's objections to showing respect for people who are not the same as they are. I understand that when an Asian or European bow to someone as a sign of respect, you guys assume it's worship and therefore an offense to God. You guys need to get out more often.

Do you believe that a savior that professes to love all humans would agree with "YOUR assessment" that if humans don't believe in him and his messages it is only fair that their souls should spend eternity in hell??? Do you really believe that a master of supposed love would be that vindictive???

**********

It isn't vindictive for a Being Who IS LOVE AND TRUTH, to say, "You can't bring your hate and filth into my place!

A loving mother can allow her child to play in the dirt and mud, but it would not be 'mean' of her to require him to clean up before he sits on the furniture...

You ask friends to pray for you. Why don't you just go straight to God and skip the middle -man?
So you believe you can disturb those in heaven and impose upon them that supposed to be at rest in peace, to ponder your sins and troubles here on earth...and approach God with them

Man that would be beyond the pale and the epitome of pride...

That is real presumptuousness and with out respect for them...

I don't buy your assumptions...

==>The words of Samuel when the witch of Endor disturbed his rest was..

were

1Sa 28:15 And Samuel said to Saul,

==> Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up?

And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do.

1Sa 28:16 Then said Samuel, Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the LORD is departed from thee, and is become thine enemy?

It was through witchcraft that Samuel was approached...

Why do you practice witchcraft... have .. seance...and talk to the dead...

Many people were in error. He didn't respect what was IN the Quran, he respected the gift and those who gave it to him.
If he believed only his Christian teachings were acceptable to "god," it was his "opportunity" to preach that sermon to all the world.

But instead he chose to kiss what he actually believed was the evil Qur'an and ignore "god."

You know it and we all know it.

I prefer to use the term emotion, as all animals feel emotion.
When I was in religion I would look at a beautiful sunset and equate the sunset to a creation of god.
Spirituality to me, brings more depth into defining emotions.

Of course it days. As information is learned, perceptions will change, unless one refuses to acknowledge those pertinent changes, then that person will never know the truth behind the perception.

Favoritism - A display of partiality toward a favored person or group.

No..I don't show favoritism towards atheists.

Honestly Regina...the only two catholics on this forum worthy talking to are Anthony and Dan. Though I don't agree with them but they know what they believe and why they believe it. The rest of you..Clay, you and every other catholic on here haven't a clue. You guys jump on their coat tails, they carry you, and you do what you're told.

And from what I have read from your comments June--nothing has changed!! You are still in confusion"!!..... I/we as Catholics think of it as Mass confusion", in that we have the TRUTH of the Mass and you have just more of the same old "merry-go-round" of confusion!!
You seem like a very sincere person June!...... I am quite surprised that you have chosen to reject "faith" in God, Salvation in Jesus Christ and the Spiritual gifts of the Church---Christs Church!!!

God Bless you. How are you doing health wise, is the medication helping you?? I think about you often , and your wife.
you have made it through some hard times, God has been with you all the way . Bible verse for you and your wife today.
"Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You."
My niece's lungs are still bleeding, she had half a one on each side remove a few years back.
She can't stop smoking, what a curse that habit is. I give God all the glory for delivering me from it.
Her condition I am sure has something to do with it, but her anxiety doesn't help .
she really should quit smoking, the lung is the only Organ(with the exception of our heart of course) in the Body that is essential to our life. I used to smoke over two packs a day and quit the day that I got saved and my lungs have cleared up

I think you, as everyone tries to apply their ethical standards in as correct a fashion as they understand. So the question remains are they correct enough for God? And that is between you and God.
...
I'm glad you clear this major point of the forum up.

I agree - my life [Self] is between me and "God" (if applicable), and not one religion or person in this world can say otherwise.

Too bad for all of those Catholics that don't believe you.

Out of charity I avoid commenting on your feeble-minded and ignorant posts to spare you the embarrassment. I'll usually only address you when you're either attacking me or throwing out another whopper of a lie about the Catholic Church.
I am not an authority. The Catholic Church is. All I do is correct your errors regarding the Catholic faith and history.
I do believe in the bible. It is historical fact that the only reason protestants even have a bible is because of the Catholic Church. I don't believe in your version of the bible, especially because you have no authority to teach the bible and also because you are barely literate and are a menace to biblical truth.
The Catholic Church never, ever discouraged people from reading the bible, they only discouraged people from reading BAD TRANSLATIONS of the bible.
We have no idols in our Churches.
We don't pray TO Mary or the saints, we ask them to pray to Jesus for us.
We show Jesus on the cross to remind us of His sacrifice and because St. Paul said we are to preach Him crucified.

I didn't say you showed them favoritism. I asked if you thought it was wrong. Nice try at sidestepping the question, charles. I know why you won't answer it, that's okay.

I also know what I believe and why. But since my name is Regina you can't seem to handle it. Thanks for the insults, it's what I've come to expect from you and you've not disappointed me yet.
