This is meant in all seriousness here…there is another (Catholic) member here that knows me and has seen the same.
I have several Catholic friends and most have been consistent. However, lately, I’ve been running into quite a few Catholics that say:
The Bible is a bunch of stories
Their priest teaches that the miracles of Christ didn’t really happen
Noah’s flood may have been localised, but may not have happened at all
They are Catholic, but don’t believe in Transubstantiation of the Eucharist, that it’s just a nice spiritual ceremony, and their priest doesn’t say there is anything wrong with this (or perhaps they simply haven’t discussed it with their priest?) Even as a Reformed person, we hold Communion to be more than a "nice spiritual ceremony"
The Catholic church doesn’t take a stand on Creation
One Catholic stated that she was in shock over this, but when she found out which diocese one person attended said that that diocese was practically considered heretical by the rest (then why isn’t the Catholic Church stepping in and doing something…)
Could someone explain this to me…either the variety permitted or not permitted. And what is which a diocese that just tosses everything as simply being “good morality building helps” (this would be more like the UUC, yes?) :shrug:
