Below is the text from a Pentecostal message board where I posted this. Another Catholic there, Michaelg, had not answered someone’s question right away and they made fun of him, suggesting that he couldn’t answer and that he was a chicken. So I posted what you see below. Note the dates. I just find this sort of thing interesting and I’m not sure what to make of it. These are people I’d like to speak to face to face.
This is interesting.
On August 17 (19 days ago), I asked the question quoted below and have still not received an answer.
I can only assume that the person who made the claim that Catholics are currently killing other people because of religion is very busy, or is doing an extremely thorough job of putting together indisputable documention for that claim.
I also assumed that the information might have been readily available, after all, it is a pretty big claim. But I’ve been wrong before.

First off, I added the word in parenthesis, I thought it was clear that I was making a point. Second, anyone who thinks the Roman Church IS NOT CURRENTLY KILLING FOLKS over their faith is laughably ignorant.
(THIS IS ME) So, you added “protestants” even though there were no protestants in Aquinas’ time, thus changing the meaning of the words. Okay.
Next, color me laughably ignorant because I am unaware of the Roman Catholic Church “currently killing folks over their faith.” Can you please enlighten me and give me some evidence that Catholics are “currently killing folks over their faith” ? Thank you.[/font][/size]To this date, no one at that message board has answered my question. Below is the email exchange I had with one of the moderators of that site.

Okay. No problem. Get back to me in a few days, or

waiting your answer.

I am so sorry… as you can see from my inactivity, I have been exceedingly busy. Pray for us, we are in the path of Hurricane Rita.
***My original email to him was August 21. To date I have never receieved an answer either at the message board or by email. I’ll give him the Hurricane, but before that I was completely ignored. *
