How do you know your interlocutors follow the Latin rite and not, say, the Byzantine? Or were we using “Roman Catholic” as a perjorative?
In any case, Christ did not enjoin us to “respond in kind”, but to “turn the other cheek”.
Actually, I tried very hard to engage in the thread topic but the very first post was about how Protestants are wrong.
Are you a Protestant?
You might also consider that ignoring some posts is good for the soul. There are many non-Catholics on this Forum; you can always trust them to address any misconceptions about Protestantism.
I hear that from Roman Catholics all the time.
Perhaps you could post evidence of it. In another thread.
The difference, of course, is that I was sincerely seeking to ascertain why there is a difference between Christian evangelism and Roman Catholic evangelism.
And that’s got to be Exhibit Y.
As noted, Catholics are Christians. You make the insulting inference in your “question” that we are not.
In fact, when I asked you directly, you refused to state that Catholics are Christians.
You apparently believe we are not.
You therefore were not legitimately seeking after truth, but were in fact seeking to recycle the calumny that Catholics are not Christians.
Aside from being a dishonest practice, it is one which destroys your credibility as evangelist or apologist for your faith.
More importantly, it puts you in danger of violating Christ’s commandments, which I as your brother in Christ (whether you acknowledge me so or not) urge you to avoid.
You have utterly refused to engage on this thread at all, even when I handed you an opportunity for fruitful, calumny-free discussion.
So why not hit the reset button now, clear the previous discussion, and let’s talk about the topic?
