HOGWASH!!---NO ONE in the Catholic Church is forcing ANYONE to join Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church!!! If non-catholics don't want to accept the TRUTH of the TRUE biblical teachings of the Church, they are "free" to go down the street to a Protestant Church where "each persons-personal opinion" is the final authority,(any one of the 42,100 denominations) in which their ministers and preachers will "tell them what they want to hear"! i.e abortion, gay marriage, embroyonic stem cell research, women ministers, euthenasia or whatever else comes along, depending on which way the "politically correct" (wind happens to blow)!!!
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
church: a calling out, i.e.(concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):--assembly..
It does not define any denomination....the Catholic denomination is the largest in the USA!!!!!
