Um, you do realize that Roe v Wade was decided in 1972 which established the right to abortion? The makeup of the court in 1972 was 9 protestants and 1 Catholic. Six protestants and one Catholic voted for abortion rights so your husband's accusation that Catholics gave us abortion is a lie.
The Supreme Court in 2014 is made up 6 Catholics and 3 Jews.

----------
So why didn't they change Roe v Wade when they had the chance recently?

I wasn't talking about 1972.

I think He opened heaven or maybe a,part of heaven until the end when we,are,all resurrected ...
If you were to believe Jesus, you'd realize his meanings are not what others have described...

(3) Jesus says:

(1) "If those who lead you say to you:‘Look, the kingdom is in the sky!’
then the birds of the sky will precede you.
(2) If they say to you:‘It is in the sea,’ then the fishes will precede you.
(3) Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and outside of you."
(4) "When you come to know yourselves, then you will be known,
and you will realize that you are the children of the living Father.
(5) But if you do not come to know yourselves, then you exist in poverty, and you are poverty."

Catholics do not worship Mary, the Mother of Christ, as though she were a deity. Of all the misconceptions about Catholic belief and practice, this one is the most absurd. Catholics are just as aware as Protestants that Mary was a human creature, and therefore not entitled to the honours which are reserved to God alone. What many non-Catholics mistake for adoration is a very profound love and veneration, nothing more. Mary is not adored, first because God forbids it, and secondly because the Canon Law of the Catholic Church, which is based on Divine Law, forbids it, strictly forbids adoration of anyone other than the Holy Trinity. However, Catholics do feel that Mary is entitled to a great measure of exaltation because, in choosing her as the Mother of Redemption, God Himself exalted her, exalted her more than any other human person before or since. Catholics heap tribute and honour on Mary because they earnestly desire to be "followers of God, as a most dear children." (Eph. 5:1). Mary herself prophesied: "For behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me: and holy is his name." (Luke 1:48-49). Catholics know that every bit of the glory they give to Mary redounds to the glory of her divine Son, just as Mary magnified God, not herself, when Elizabeth blessed her.(Luke 1:41-55). They know that the closer they draw to her, the closer they draw to Him who was born of her. In the year 434 St. Vincent of Lerins defended Christian devotion to Mary this way: "Therefore, may God forbid that anyone should attempt to defraud Holy Mary of her privilege of divine grace and her special glory. For by a unique favour of our Lord and God she is confessed to be the most true and most blessed Mother of God." Today 75% of all Christians still hold to this same view."

Nevertheless, there are millions of protestants who claim to be born again and support abortion rights.
So again, if you reserve the right to judge whether a person is "born again" based on their abortion position, why can't Catholics, who follow the clear and vocal teaching of the Church, claim that pro-abortion "Catholics" aren't really Catholics?

----------
I wasn't judging whether a person is 'born again', just saying that I don't know any Protestants who are pro-choice.

You are probably referring to what we call 'nominal' Christians...just sort of 'club members'...not serious believers.

Why doesn't the Bible address this "mystical" Mary you speak of? Why is the Bible, the Word of God completely silent about the "Roman" Mary?
<quoted text>
OK, Tango Bravo, provide a BIBLE translation that describes Mary as follows:
1. Perpetual virgin
2. The queen of heaven
3. The mother of God
4. Assumption into heaven
5. Immaculate conception
6. Co-redeemer
7. Mother of the church
8. Sinless
9. Co-mediator
We can wait.
Why would anyone restrict themselves to Bible-only evidence when even Holy Scripture encourages attention and adherence to Tradition? When you restrict yourself to Bible-only you have what is necessary to understand your relationship with God.

"All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

But there is more to know in order to more fully understand your relationship to God.

"So, then, brethren stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter." (2 Thess. 2:15)

Pope John Paul II and Marian Worship...

POPE PRAYER TO MARY.

Pope John Paul bowing before a statue of Mary in worship.(See below right pic as well) Picture would not copy.....

On May 7 Pope John Paul II dedicated his general audience to "the Virgin Mary" and urged all Christians to accept Mary as their mother. He noted the words spoken by Jesus on the cross to Mary and to John--"Woman, behold thy son!" and "Behold thy mother!" (John 19:26,27), and he claimed that in this statement "IT IS POSSIBLE TO UNDERSTAND THE AUTHENTIC MEANING OF MARIAN WORSHIP in the ecclesial community ... which furthermore is based on the will of Christ" (Vatican Information Service, May 7, 1997).

John Paul II underlined that "the history of Christian piety teaches that MARY IS THE PATH THAT LEADS TO CHRIST, and that filial devotion to her does not at all diminish intimacy with Jesus, but rather, it increases it and leads it to very high levels of perfection." He concluded by asking all Christians "to make room (for Mary) in their daily lives, ACKNOWLEDGING HER PROVIDENTIAL ROLE IN THE PATH OF SALVATION"

Quote, "Why do Catholics worship Mary as though she were a goddess, when it is clear in Scripture that she was not a supernatural being.? Catholics do not worship Mary, the Mother of Christ, as though she were a deity." End quote.

Really? They why do Roman Catholics call her a perpetual virgin, sinless, mother of God, mother of the church, assumed into heaven, co-redeemer, queen of heaven, immaculate conception and co-mediator?

Quote, "However, Catholics do feel that Mary is entitled to a great measure of exaltation because, in choosing her as the Mother of Redemption, God Himself exalted her, exalted her more than any other human person before or since."

She is not the capital M mother of capital R redemption. She is the mother of the human body of Jesus. Also, you have never read what the Bible says about the greatest human. John 7:28, "I tell you, among those born of women none is greater than John(the Baptist). Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.” Not Mary.

Quote "They know that the closer they draw to her, the closer they draw to Him who was born of her."

The closer they draw to her the closer they draw to him who was born of her. BOLOGNA! Knowing who Mary is does not help anyone know who Jesus is. Many people know my mother and many of those same people have no idea who I am.

Quote "In the year 434 St. Vincent of Lerins defended Christian devotion to Mary this way: "Therefore, may God forbid that anyone should attempt to defraud Holy Mary of her privilege of divine grace and her special glory. For by a unique favour of our Lord and God she is confessed to be the most true and most blessed Mother of God."

#1, Mary IS NOT holy.#2, Mary is to receive no special glory.#3, she is not the Mother of God.

Let me ask all of our Roman Catholic forum participants. Did Jesus ever speak of His mother in the same terms as the Roman Catholic church speaks of her? Does Jesus ever call her "holy'?

"Membership in the Militia means complete dedication to the Kingdom of God and to the salvation of souls through Mary Immaculate." -Pope John Paul II

Pope John Paull II has 'dedicated himself and his Pontificate to Our Lady.' He bears the letter "M" for Mary in his coat of arms. And his personal motto, which is embroidered on the side of his robes in Latin is the following: "TOTUS TUUS SUM MARIA", which in English translates to: "MARY, I'M ALL YOURS."

For those that think the "Totus Tuus Sum Maria" is a fictitious proclamation of Pope John Paul II, see this excerpt from a Los Angeles Times News Article.

"By awarding the Virgin a central place in the cathedral's narrative, the archdiocese is keeping faith with a long, if fluctuating, Catholic and Orthodox tradition of devotion to Our Lady, a tradition enjoying a resurgence under Pope John Paul II.(The pope's personal motto, "Totus tuus sum, Maria," or "I am all yours, Mary," reflects his belief that the Virgin intervened to save his life from an assassin's bullet in 1981 so that he could help defeat European communism.)" -LATIMES.com Sept 1, 2002 By REED JOHNSON, Times Staff Writer (Click here to see entire article )

Also notice the official "Coat of Arms" of John Paul II...

Notice the huge letter "M" signifying John Paul II's desire to glorify MARY as his god in his pontificate.

The Catholic Church Teaches a Perverted Salvation (Not one word of Scripture to support this trash!!!!!)

From The Questions and Answers Catholic Catechism, by Father John A. Hardon, who holds a Doctorate degree from the Gregorian University near the Vatican in Rome, and is professor in the Institute for Advanced Studies in Catholic Doctrine at Sr. John's University in New York.

"The church is the universal sacrament of salvation..." (Q. 402, p. 96).

"Non Christians can be saved through the church..." (Q. 418, p. 99).

In Dictionary of the Liturgy, by Rev. Jovian P. Lang, OFM (Catholic Book Publishing Co., NY, copyright 1989).

"Also, the church could be considered the universal Sacrament of salvation for all the faithful." (page 563).

"Although Christ died to save all human beings, every individual must apply the fruits of the Redemption...This is done principally through the Church and her Liturgy. The liturgical action is itself an event of salvation..." (573).

"Thus, the Liturgy is completely concerned with salvation. It speaks of the "bread of life" and the "cup of eternal salvation" (Eucharistic prayer 1*)."(573)

Liturgy = "1 a: a rite or series of rites, observances, or procedures prescribed for public worship....c: ceremonial or ritualistic worship....2: a system or series of ceremonial or ritualistic actions done according to a prescribed arrangement" (Websters Third New International Dictionary).

In Dictionary of the Liturgy (p. 183) speaking of Eternal Life it says: "The Liturgy is one of the most powerful means for Christians to obtain this life of grace."
