I was at the web site listed below and noted some misstruths, outright lies, and perhaps hatefull things about Catholics:
Have you every heard a Baptist member or preacher say or write things that were untrue or missleading about Catholics? Have you ever read Baptist publications that were outright lies?
Please give links and examples of things that Baptists have said about Catholic that were just not true. Give us examples of things you have heard Baptist preachers say about Catholics from the pulpit that were untrue or inapropriate.
You may even exaplain how the Baptist claims were untrue. This is not a thread to argue Baptist beliefs in general, just the ones they make against the Catholic Church that are untrue or missleading. If what they say is true then proof it too. Who knows, maybe they have some truth in there somewhere that if politely said, we might listen to it? Where and why did they start these lies? Why do so many ignorent Catholics fall for these lies (ignorent of Church teachings only that is)? Do most Baptists even really know what the Church teaches? Do they even care?
If you are now or have been or have attended Baptist meetings then you should have some helpfull things to say and explain here.
Remember too that Baptists are our seperated/schismatic brothers and sisters in Christ so lets treat them with some repect and love that all Gods children and brothers and siters of Jesus deserve.
I feel sorry for our Eastern rite Catholics too as the Baptists seem to lump you all in with us too? Is this on purpose or do the Baptists not know that the ‘Roman’ rite is just one branch of the one true Catholic Church under the Bishop of Rome and the Eastern rite is the another? Are you Eastern Catholics offended by this or notice this too? Catholics have a hard time with this subject so could we possibly expect a seperated/schismatic brother to know it?
PS, why can I not start a poll with this thread?
