Some CAF members in here have said that many beliefs of the Catholic faith concerning Mary is based on speculation. I strongly disagree. Our belief in all Marian beliefs are based on faith because the Catholic Church have declare them to be true, and requires all the faithful to believe in them. They are also part of Divine Revelation.
The CAF insist many times in this forum that these beliefs are speculation. They aren’t. We believe them to be true because the Church affirms them. This is faith not speculation. If he continues to persist that our belief are speculation, atheists in this forum have the same right to call our belief in God as speculation as well.
