Politically, we all know where this anti-catholic/anti-christian movement is rooted! Saddly, many who call themselves liberal christians are marching lock-step with these haters of Christ and unwittingly aiding them in their propoganda campaign to discredit God, His Truth and His Word I, for one, pray that God intervines knowing that it may not be pretty when He does.

rreid,

I'm neither anti-Catholic, nor anti-Christian (although I had an Aunt Christie who would always get drunk at Thanksgiving, but that's another story).

Even though I've chosen to become an atheist, I was raised in the Greek Orthodox Church. At that time the Orthodox felt the Catholics were icon worshipping, fools. They felt the Catholics put too much emphasis on Mary, and not enough on Christ. They didn't like the idea of an "infallable Pope", and allowed their priests to marry and raise families.

You can call Catholics the only true believers in Christ, but in doing so, you show just how ignorant you are. Just because you're a Catholic doesn't mean that's the only path to Christianty, or any other truth.

He wasn't making fun.

Putting words in people's mouths is lying. I can't recommend you repeat that pathetic performance.

"T, he has made fun of me before "

So what?

From what I can see, you ask for abuse, so you don't get to whine about it anyway.

Meanwhile, you transgressed, so the only behavior on display that needs to change is yours. Time to update.

The scientific revolution isn't political, so, no, you don't "know."

How are American newspapers and networks covering the Conclave? Poorly, if at all. Most of the stories are breathless horserace-style speculations about men they don't know. When American journalists venture into the issues facing the Roman Catholic Church they rightly mention the abuse scandals and then most stop, except for a few who go on about celibacy --which is not going to change no matter who emerges as the new pope. When you next spot an article talking about the slaughter of Christians in the world or the suppression of the Church in China, send me a link. The next pope...
