    I think it is an observation that you are supposed to keep to yourself at this particular website.

    I would like to extend my apologies to Blackdog and the Forum as a whole for directing my insult at the personage, rather than the opinion.

    Well that is the problem then. I don't consider Catholics Christians, they are Catholics. They follow the commands of a man over God. This does not mean they are hell bound or anything. It just means they are wrong on allot of things biblical.

    This is not an insult in any way, just a perfect example of how they consider their traditions more important than the words of Christ. Hence the Crusades and support of Nazi's etc.

    And as you might have noticed, mankind is pretty crappy at interpretation sometimes. Now, back to my original point: Christianity and Islam both have promoted violence in their texts, Obviously Islam more so in their Holy Book than Christianity, but each side have had their moments with violence.
    The violence by Islam is justified in there holy book, it is not in the Bible. HUGE difference. You are basically making the "look Christan's did it" argument. That argument has been debunked around here more times than I care to remember.

    This is not about Islam, I have no problem with freedom of religion. My problem is blanket statements that are not true.

    PS this is not an attack on Catholics, just an observation by a non-denominational Protestant.

    Just because I don't think it was a terrorist attack doesn't mean I believe that whatever group was behind it (if there was one) shouldn't be punished.

    I always thought that was kind of a pompous opinion to have of Catholics. How the heck are you going to call the Second branch of Christians (behind the original Christian Jews), NOT Christians? Have you BEEN to mass lately? It's JESUS this, and JESUS that. Oi. Longest hour of the week, some might say. Catholics follow the 10 commandments, with guidance from the Bible. I suppose you think we worship Mary and all the Icons in our churches, too?

    Christianity n. a monotheistic system of beliefs and practices based on the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus as embodied in the New Testament

    Now tell me, by definition, that Catholics aren't Christian.

    Now, I'm assuming (very risky maneuver here) you're of a Protestant or Evangelical branch of Christianity, which ironically, Catholics don't recognize as actual churches. Catholicism sees them as Christians, just not an actual Church (Guess it has something to do with that One True Church doctrine or some jazz like that. Odd that we still recognize the Eastern Orthodox fellas...but that's a whooole 'nother story)

    Protestantism is the reason Christianity is in such tatters today. It essentially opened the door from having 2 major sects of Christianity to HEY ANYONE CAN CREATE THEIR OWN BRANCH! and now we have even MORE abuse and 'tradition of Man' put into the churches. i.e. I don't see any Priests rollin' around in Escalades or collecting a mandatory 10% tithe from the congregation...

    And while I respect what Martin Luther did, I think he did more harm than good by underestimating what man would do. He thought that if he were to bring to light the flaws of the Church, the people would fix them, instead, it opened the floodgates for people to interpret the Bible ANY way they pleased. Which is essentially doing more harm than good these days, for example the Westboro Baptist Church. While I know they aren't a real Baptist congregation, they are an example of the further abuses of Christianity.

    The Crusades were driven by both men who honestly believed they were doing the will of God and...well...I'll just say it...Italians who were trying to make some moolah, and if they praised God along the way then BENE!

    The Catholic Church also helped Jews and other persecuted groups escape Germany. But no one seems to remember that. Nor do they remember the Priests who were imprisoned for resisting the Nazi regimes.

    But it parallels. Hence my juxtaposition of the two. (YAY! Word of the Day!)

    Who did I blanket because I hate blanket terms too, and I certainly would hate it if I did or said anything hypocritical.
