You didn't quote her, but the bigger point was the reason she was doing it. Not to smear the church. Nope. She posted more than that and then lied and said she wasnt trying to smear the church. Its so obvious.<quoted text>
"Get your facts straight Clay... you won't find sexual abuse plastered on the news on tv from the Orthodox church plus a cover up to boot as yes see from your church"
Ok, my interpretation of your above statement says that you believe its a Catholic thing; its a Catholic issue; the problem is within the Catholic Church and not the Orthodox Church because we are on tv more.
Since there are no facts to support the problem being a Catholic issue more so than an Orthodox issue, I felt you were purposely letting a little slander in to go along with your other rants about the CC.
That is the point Catholics have made and gave credit to Protestants and other organizations who have recognized their own sins. However what Ox did and what Herme and Sere both fueled was an attack on the Catholic church. Saying, implying or pointing to the church and and whoever says it has more or because its in the news doesn't make it true. Pointing out the facts in relation to claims made against the church with an opinion is not minimalizing, defending or margininalizing anything.
Herme says to Hojo after he says he knows the church is true. "Hojo, wouldnt it be a wonderful magical world if it really worked that way... "It is true cause I know it." Here he mocks Hojo, yet he can state the Catholic Church has the biggest problem with nothing to back it up.
Sere can mock secular reports that show that its not and Herme says nothing, but he defends the attack on the church while stating Catholics defend abuse by pointing out others and he doesnt miminimimze the failings of the Orthodox on abuse like Catholics. Hyprocrisy at its finest. In attacking the church and joining with those who were willfully maligning the church and ignoring their own sins and feeding hostility and hatred and misinformation so abundant in here and act self righteous about it and lie and say you are not doing it to smear the church is abhorrent to the truth and truly shows no remorse or even caring about the abused. Its simply a lynch mob, but then its just the mean catholics in here. Nobody calls us infidels, abortion to the truth, pagans, liars, not christian in caps, not saved, or posts endless nonsense, the anti-christs, stupid idol worhsippers blah blah blah. Yet the Orthodox who hold many of the same beleifs are immune from attacks, by the selective hypocrite method.
The only reason it was stated is the smear the church, but of course sere never does that. lol Its obvious she never lies. I guess thats what you mean by them being a good Christian? It is some Protestants in here condemning Catholics to hell. The church doesnt teach they are going to hell so its not said. Do Catholics believe the Church is the body of the Christ. Yes, just as Protestants believe their church invisible or visible is. I just want to know who the false teachers are as everyone divides the word differently and nobody is an authority in sola scriputre world except what you as an individual choose to believe. See James 3:1
That is not name calling or cruel in any way it is a reality. Ox has the SBC truth he says. Protestants have argued with each quite a bit in here and no its not been friendly. There are multiple truths in Protetantism. If all a Protestant wants to do is dig up dirt on handful of evil popes who never proclaimed any doctrines nor are denied, or wish to say the Church is pagan and founded by Constantine, All priests are homosexuals. Catholics are pedophiles because they dont believe and worship idols. The pope is the antichrist, Jesuit oaths, massive distortions of history. Saying the church cannot possibly be the true church bry bringing up a scandal is disingenious at best as if sin is immune elsewhere.
