I was invited by a wonderful couple over for Christmas dinner, one of which use to be Roman Catholic and had been influence heavily by a Catholic Hate Group which targets truck drivers.
You may have seen their trailer set up at truck stops.
Any ways she now have a very anti-catholic view point but still loves to read the bible.
That is the background for the thoughts which I am about to mention:
I think that it is very sad that some people are baptist into the church without any knowledge of what they are given baptism for. Jesus was not even given baptism by Saint John until into his adult life. Shouldn’t the Church wait until a person willing accept the Church Doctrines before receiving baptism? This certainly would prevent all of these ex-Catholics from being Ex, and bad mouthing the faith. The first thing out of there mouth is, “I use to be Catholic” and then they precede with all kinds of awful things which they claim about the Church teaching which the Church do not teach and never has.
Oh, by the way, I recommended her to this forum so that she could hopefully learn what she should have been taught by her God-Parents.
