that so many people spend so much time bashing the Catholic Church and trying to disprove it? This has been bugging me for a long time. I was brought up anti-Catholic to the point where I used to get upset with people for being Catholic and didn’t even know why. I just knew it was bad. It seems most non-Catholics have this reaction. I guess I could kind of see the mainline churches having anti-Catholic attitudes but mostly it’s the “out” there churches that hate Catholics the most ie. Fundamentalists, Mormons, JW’s etc. There are message boards all over the internet that just bash and bash and bash Catholicism. Why do they care if someone is Catholic or not? It really is bizarre when you think about it.
By going by my own experience I’m wondering if people hate it because deep down they are really, really afraid it might be true and that scares them to death.
