This thread is intended to be a poll, not a discussion. I can’t use the Board’s poll feature because it limits a poll to 7 choices, and I think that is not nearly enough!
If you are not “Roman” Catholic, I wonder - what is your #1 objection to the Catholic Church. Forget all the other objections - what is the BIGGEST objection you have?
If you’re a convert, what WAS your #1 objection before converting?
I am NOT seeking input in this thread from current or former Catholics who still have an objection to some aspect of the Church - only those who are/were not Catholic to begin with.
Please feel free to offer a brief comment on WHY this item is/was so objectionable. But - again - this is too broad a thread to facilitate individual discussion - those should be opened in other threads
I’ll start off (being a Convert myself): Papal Infallibility was my #1 objection - I viewed it as a late invention of convenience after the Great Schism. I had other issues (Marian doctrines), but if you could prove to me the Pope was, indeed, infallible, then I would be compelled to concede the other issues anyway (how can you argue with infallibility???)
- If I get enough answers, I’ll attempt to categorize/tabulate them and post my results.*
