Well, I’m back for good. I’ve spent a lot of time over the past year or two (my how time flies) posting on a vehemently anti-catholic forum in an attempt to inject some sanity to the constant barrage of arguments. The sad thing about sites like that (won’t tell you the name, but rhymes with (Edited) is that you just can’t reach the people with the real Catholic position.
*]You tell them we don’t worship Mary… they know the “truth” - of course we do. :rolleyes:[/LIST][LIST]
*]You tell them the Eucharist is not cannibalism… they know it is. :rolleyes:[/LIST][LIST]
*]You tell them purgatory is not a “second chance” to “work” your way to heaven… they “correct” you. :rolleyes:[/LIST]
It’s the same set of tired and unsupported arguments over and over again - based on bias and misunderstanding. I guess some people figure that the more you repeat a lie, the more it will be accepted. What is really sad is that they are absolutely convinced that they understand the Catholic faith better than any Catholic because… isn’t it obvious we are in bondage. :mad:
Well, I’m finished bashing my head against that wall. I just don’t need that aggravation any more. Aside from a half-dozen persons who seemed genuinely open to dialogue, it was not a place for the weak in faith.
I’m coming home to the CA forums where I can read some sanity again.
Any of you tired of seeing the same old anti-Catholic rhetoric being spewed forth again and again by those christians who claim to “know” what we “really” believe?
