Protestant big guns on these forums


#1

Who are the one’s that hold their own and are able to do it charitably on these forums?


#2

Contarini comes to mind.


#3

What is the purpose or why are you asking this question? IMHO, people seek power whether from a debate or some other satisfaction more often than not. IMHO, I see this strikingly in the Eastern Orthodox forum. Debate for the sake of drawing attention more to oneself.

If your question is who is the most understandable non-catholic, that I understand. If hold your own means “debate”, go to the Eastern Orthodox forum and enjoy!


#4

What do you want?


#5

I stay away from there altogether! It only took me wandering in on a few conversations early on, me and my naive self, well, I was put in my place real fast! :tissues:

I’ll stay where the love is! :heart:


#6

The question was about Protestants. Contrarini is the only example of a protestant who comes close.

I guess they told you!:stuck_out_tongue:

Hang in there, Zooey.


#10

I thought you had more sense.

Seems that there are a lot of protestant pop-guns our there, but no big guns that I’ve seen. It seems that the dissenting Catholics do more harm here.


#12

Not at all - just practically Catholic :wink: :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

If everyone responded with your charity Zooey, it would be a better world, and your more Catholic than some Catholics I know, just like TraditionalAng.:console:


#14

Do you want names and addresses?:stuck_out_tongue:


#15

I thought dissenting Catholics were protestant.:confused:

I don’t know if you’d consider me a “big gun” or not. I have a Th.M. from Dallas Theological Seminary but I’ve never been a professional churchman, and my purpose for registering here was to learn more about Catholicism (a faith which I held, more of less, until I was 20 years old), not to argue or “bash” (I was on the receiving end of the bashing for too long myself…).

Besides, I stink at debating and really don’t have time to get involved in long discussions. If I can give an answer without a lot of research or back-and-forth stuff, or make a contribution to a subject which is of mutual interest, I will, but I’m primarily here to see what y’all have to say.

Yours because His,

#17

It is in the mind of the beholder who is a dissenting Catholic and who isn’t. :wink:


#18

I’m not a dissenting Catholic.


#19

Well…I am big (ie could stand to lose a few pounds) does that count :smiley:

I see a couple of them on this thread - their posts are always done with great charity and knowledge (and with a little humor, too!)

Plus, they’re not banned! :smiley:

Thanks for posting, our protestant friends! (you know who you are!)
