But I will say this again for those capable of understanding: Catholics do NOT pray to saints.
They are not gods. No Saint is ever placed before or even equal to God or Christ. They are venerated figures of the Church. You don't even ****ing understand what a Saint is so do forgive me if I laugh at the idea that you could even begin to apply scriptures to the concept.Men you pray to men the Catholic religion has idolized. So it is a blatant violation of Exodus 20:3-4/
3 You shall have no other gods before me. 4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
7 "You shall have no other gods before me. 8 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
Yes, they are saintly men. They are not gods.How is it stupid? Instead of Bacchus the god of wine you have Arnold of Soissons the patron saint of Brewers,Vincent of Saragossa of winemakers,Theobald of Provins of Farmers, winegrowers, shoemakers, beltmakers, charcoal-burners and many other saints. Instead of Mars God of war you have Saint Sebastian patron saint of soldiers and athletes, Saint Maurice patron saint of infantrymen, Martin of Tours patron saint of soldiers and many other saints .
Catholics pray to only one god no matter how desperately and ignorantly you cling to idiotic ideas you keep spewing forth. You know so little about what you are talking and you eclipse that with a die hard commitment to remaining stupid on the topic that I scarcely see how you could find yourself educated on the matter.Christians only pray to God. So no Catholics are not Christians.
Good, because no catholic prays to a saint.Again praying to saints is not Christianity.
Just because you have such a limited understanding of matters of faith that you cannot see nuance and complexity in the intercessions of the saint does not mean you are in the least bit correct. Your ignorance knows no bounds no matter how hard you attempt to come off as having a ****ing clue.Just because you do not call it praying and use some paper coated term does not change the fact it is praying.
True, so what's your point?Pagans pray to things other than God.
And you know exactly 0 about what you are speaking. You are no more knowledgable about the topic of what is a Christian and what is not than some aborigine in the depths of the jungle unless it is an aborigine who has been ministered to by a CatholicCatholics are not Christians nor are they even the first to claim to be Christians. Catholicism is something the roman ripped off from the Christians they were persecuting and integrated it with paganism. You are no more a Christian than a Jew(unless it is a Messianic Jew), Wiccan or a Muslim.
