Good afternoon my friends. At the behest of a friend, I just visited another site that will remain nameless as we need to avoid forum swarming. Let’s just say that it is one of those “other” sites and leave it at that.
After reading a little, and then fighting back laughter (and vomit), I just wanted to point something out to you. I am, a Doctorate Candidate, and if there is one thing that I know for sure it is research. Now, just so that you do not ever get caught off guard, let me point out something that was seriously lacking on the other forum…scholarly research and source citation. Why is it that some Bible thumper thinks that he can just state an opinion that is backed up by nothing, and that this is going to convince someone? Does this still work anymore?
If it does, maybe I should start making wild unfounded claims about Protestants. Here are a few examples:
- Being protestant will make you infertile.
- Being protestant will make your hair fall out.
- Being protestant will make you rich.
- Every convert to the First Church of (insert name here) will be granted a new Ferrari by God.
- Protestants get more chicks than Catholics.
What is the point of the list? There is not one, and that is the point. Read any of those and you just laugh at how stupid they are. Well, that is the way that I feel when I go to a Prot board and find some moron still saying that I worship the Pope.
Here is another thought. For 500 years we have been telling people that we do not worship the Pope, Mary, or anyone but Jesus. And we have told shown them time and again where the origin of that teaching is found. So, after 500 years it is hard for me to believe that at least a couple of Prots understand that part of Catholic teaching. IF so, why do the people starting this kind of a thread never get corrected? Probably the same reason that I can’t get a membership to any of those boards if I tell them that I am a Roman Catholic. Because they are liars and they want to go on telling lies. And these are the people who tell US that WE are not walking with Christ.
