In the 1300-1600's anyone who was not Catholic was murdered by these "Godly" people. Yup. Torture chambers, iron maidens, thumbscrews, anal pears, the whole bit. Not to mention beheading and burning at the stake.
The catholics DID NOT however, persecute atheists (surprise?)
Protestant religions, despite getting whacked out of existence as soon as the Catholics found out of their being, finally managed to prosper in the 1600's and eventually found their way to America. Then the Catholics showed up... *chop* *chop*
The Catholics also support homosexual activities. A "live as you please and then confess" lifestyle and such. You can sin all you want and confessing will make it legit.
When monks/priests and other "laymen" take a vow of celebacy, it is only in regards to women, children/young boys are not off limits.
"Dude, you go out with a catholic girl? Your ass woulda been ashes for that not too many years ago. The catholic church doesn't like you infidels."
"So, how long has your little cousin been going to confession? Let's check his anus and see how loose it is, you catch him"
Catholic Church -- refers to an actually assembly of Catholics... the building in which Masses are held and the Eucharist is present.
Fears competition that could make man sway from their god so they tell us that things are wrong or sins.
PromotesPrejudice against threats such as women, other religions pagans
HAVE killed more people than Nazi's
Set's ridiculous rules and regulations about what are right and wrong, and how to compensate for them.
f. Every other religion
h. Anyone not "like them" or that go against their "beliefs"
2. Catholics hold "Beliefs" I don't 'believe' what you believe. How the hell do you know anything anyways; have you talked to God? Here is an idea; believe what you want, but don't condemn, condone, or object to anything. Period. If the Catholic "God" is going to judge us, then Catholics shouldn't have to.
Note on abortion: Do you want to be the child of a rape victim? Or a 16 year old girl? Or both? Didn't think so...
Through the use of fear and piety of positions and dogmatic view of their religion, cathlics priests believe their religion to be the true church. (Yeah like i haven't heard that from about 50 other religions.)
Priests in modern times have been uncovered as child molesters and other despicable acts. The self righteousnees held by some catholics is digusting and all consuming, either way firm catholic or the ones that go on easter and christmas only, everything they say needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
C: well buggery to that, i'll do whatever the hell i feel like. DOesn't stop priests from bending little altar boys over.
