First off I would just like to say hi to everyone, I’ve been reading this board for some time now, and thought that it would be good to finally introduce myself and again say hello. My wife and I this past Easter Vigil were fully initiated and confirmed into the Catholic Church. It was a long two-year journey for us, from the Lutheran church, but we are so happy that we are finally home. Thank you so much to Jim Blackburn for your wonderful advice.
Anyways, I have been emailing back and forth recently with an old friend and he has thrown some really hateful accusations at the Catholic Church and I am not really sure how to respond to him. Any advice you can offer would be most appreciated.
Thanks and God bless,
Here’s part of his recent email:
If you or I had been born when Mr. Neitczche was, it would have been a more appropriate and acceptable response to the end of the tyrannical attempt of the Catholic Church to incorporate torture such as live boilings, burning “heretics” at the stake, censorship out of control and of all things for freakin’ Napolean Bonaparte’
to have brought the whole thing darn near down !!!
That is why the Pope was driven out of Italy and all other countries and given his (their) own little place (the Vatican City) to sit and stew about who to feed their line of BS to now.
And, after the Inquisitions all flew south, and the Jewish Kid being kidnapped and “baptized”; it was money that changed minds very quickly. For the Vatican had been solely funded for many generations by the Rothschilds (Jewish).
To top it all off, your response to the question of Roman Catholic Preists RAPING
little boys, was that the percentage of Catholic RAPEing of little boys, was directly in line with a societal percentage, IS BS !!! God does not look at it that way. Only Catholics. There is no analogy that I can use to illustrate how ridiculous that is.
It took until 1968 for the R.C. 's to abolish the hundred year plus old “list of approved publishings”.
That is why I asked why you chose Roman Catholicism, Tony. What other choices did you look into ?
