Ok, ok, so I’m not the most well-versed Catholic, I admit, but I have been doing my homework and tonight I read something on a secular message board that reeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaly made my blood boil:
And not only do Christians hate it when you remind them that their holidays were deliberately placed on/around pagan ones (Christmas:Winter Solstice, Easter:Spring Equinox/May Day [hehehe…Hare Club for Men], All Saints Day/Samhaine to name a couple) but they really hate it when you tell them they’re in a blood cult…
Then ask them what they’re drinking after the transubstantiation ritual.
Now, I understand transubstantiation perfectly, and I believe it completely, but I think it’s completely ridiculous to accuse us of being in a “blood cult” because of it. It’s definitely anti-Catholic rhetoric, of that I have no doubt.
It was always my understanding with regard to holidays that we celebrated certain holidays according to the liturgical calendar…and I guess I’m just going to have to study this a bit harder, but please, anything anyone can do to give me a few short cuts would be greatly appreciated…
Perhaps I’m just overly bothered because the guy who said this makes repeated anti-Christian and anti-Catholic statements, and I suspect this guy is a satanist as he’s got a title of “disciple of discordia” on his profile as well as “polygnosticism and the end of the world as we know it” as a catch-phrase.
How do I even begin responding to something (and someone) like this?
