[quote=Roman_Catholic]Yep he sure does believe the Catholic Church is the anti-Christ. He also believes there are no christians in the Catholic church. He wrote a very hateful email to my fiance once he found out she was converting to Catholicism. It strengthened her resovle, stripped away her false values and allowed her to focus on the truth. He has done more to “convince” her of the truth that is Catholicism than I ever could have.
Hey, just wanted to say that things might improve once you and your fiance are married. I will pray for you.
Something similar happened with my cousin. She was culturally Byzantine Catholic, but I wouldn’t say she was really on fire for the Catholic faith. Her fiance had a father who was an elder in an evangelical church that was anti-Catholic. The fiance’s parents liked my cousin until they found out she was Catholic. Then, all the hatred and attacks started. My cousin’s fiance didn’t want to be married in the Catholic church, and my cousin wasn’t going to push him on it. However, due to the rage and hatred and meanness of his parents, he decided to just go ahead and get married in the Catholic church.
The wedding was interesting, one one side of the church was my ethnic Catholic family, and the other side were the anti-Catholic evangelicals. The pastor of this anti-Catholic church even came. They looked rather sullen, to be honest, and I think they expected we were going to sacrifice babies on the altar or something. However, as the beautiful marriage cermony and divine liturgy started, they seemed to deflate. The ceremony was all about Jesus and Scripture, it was **awesome. ** Afterwards, the groom’s parents did start to smile a bit. Prior to the wedding, they had said they would not dance during the bridal dance when the parents and the bridal party come up and dance along with the new bride and groom. But, after the wedding ceremony, they actually did get up to dance. And, in front of the groom’s mother, her employer, a Jewish doctor, raved about the wedding ceremony and how beautiful it was. The Byzantine wedding ceremony draws alot from the Old Testament, so I am sure he could appreciate it!
So, hang in there!!! Peace to you and your fiance’!
