There is this guy I talk to who is very Anti-Catholic. It is an almost pathological Anti-Catholicism, where he just says these vicious and slanderous things about the Church and the comments are just stupid (i.e. the Church is full of pedophiles, etc.) and it really gets me angry.
Anyway, when I think about the things he says and does (he is a proverbial sidewalk evangelist who loves to go after Catholics) it gets me very angry and the following thoughts crossed my mind:
Wanting to publicly challenge him when he ‘evangelizes’, whether to Catholics or non-Christians
Wanting to so viciously challenge him publicly, that it would cause him to have the proverbial heart attack and keel over.
Wanting him to go the “bad place”
Now, I don’t think I really hope for him to keel over or go to Hell, it is just I have a vivid imagination and his attacks on the Church rile me up. I don’t know, I guess it is just the anger crosses my mind and then hateful thoughts pop up and I worry that I have given sufficient consent to said thoughts that they become not just sin, but mortal sin.
EDIT: I think sometimes my anger at his comments maybe based on pride or something (as in, I do not want to feel I have made the wrong choice by becoming Catholic).
