a person of the Catholic faith.
The real resason i am writing this to clear up many beliefs about Catholics. One thing you people must understand is that one person's actions do not account for an entire group. If someone does wrong, his etire family is also wrong. Many definitions here on urban dictionary were "all catholics are wife-beatin, child-molesting drunks!!!"
No. Bad person. lol
We do not hate gay/lesbians. if any individual catholic appears that way, it does not mean that all of us do!! what we belive is that no, homosexuallity is not right, but we do believe in forgiveness. If u are sorry, god will forgive you.
If certain priests and church staff sexually molested children, why does that mean all catholic men molest the boys of the church? and what church official came and said "yea, thats what we do!!! we support them!!!!" us Catholics do not condone the actions of those men, we condemn them. but if they are truly, truly sorry, and repent for their sins, God will forgive them.
End of story. AND
i personally belive in live-and-let-live, so do what u want, gay/lesbians.
now for sex, the topic of the times.
first, I personally belive that if u do love the person and they loe u, then fuck your brains out. there, i said it, sorry God.
What i am supposed to belive is that we should wait until we are married with the person we love. sex should be treated as a gift, to only 1 person ever. (yea, right- sorr again)
masturbation- i do it and love it, but hey, god knows it and im still not smited!!!! OMG ITS A MIRACLE!!!!! all i know is that no, u wont go to hell if u do it once. im not that up-to-date in what the Vatican thinks of this certain topic now...
As a catholic, i belive that Catholisism is the One true faith, and we follow the one, true God. we dont think that if ur not a catholic, your fucked. we just think were right, and if that's so bad, what does EVERY OTHER RELIGION THINK????? that they're wrong? i think not...
WHO THE FUCK WOULD BE THAT RETARTED TO THINK CATHOLICS BELIVE SHITTING IS A SIN???????? OMG, YOU ARE RETARTED
no, we dont think everything is a sin.
it's called common sense, people... every parent, wether Atheist (sp?), Bhudist, or chatholic, raises their children to be good people. and good means not doing wrong, NOT FUCKIN PERFECT, CUZ EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES, just not bad.
yes, we do belive in forgiveness of sins. if u do it over and over again, u can still be forgiven. DONT THINK, YEA BOI, HERES MY KNIDA RELIGION, "OK FATHER, LAST WEEK I ANAL RAPED THIS 12-YEAR-OLD DOWN THE BLOCK AND THEN FUCKIN KILLED MY PARENTS, SOLD THEIR STUFF ,AND SPENT THE MONEY OF FUCKIN SHIT! ok were good, see you next week!!!!
no no no no... "sorry" is the key. only if u are truly sorry, and God will kno if u are, will u be forgiven.
now, this other definition hurt me...
"An evil, hate-mongering, supposedly Christian church responsible for as many deaths as Hitler, or maybe more, over the years. Have been around for about 1400 years, and originally did not associate themselves with Christianity.
My great-great-great-great-g reat Grandmother was alive in 1700's Europe. She was declared a heretic and burned at the stake when my 4x Great Grandmother was only a few years old. - This happened all the time for a few hundred years. They treated poor citizens cruelly, randomly murdered Jews and Muslims, and were cruel to cats and other animals."
way too far
how the fuck do we not associate ourselves with christianity???
now on to my favorite topic: the Pope, the Holy Father, His Holiness.
why would he be the target of some definitions? ND WHY ARE PEOPLE OBSESSED WITH HIS FUCKING HAT??????
well, im done ranting for now. see you people next time
anti-catholic- You people suck
me- live and let live
SKIP TO JUDGEMENT DAY
Jesus- so anticatholic, umm... dont know how to say this but, bye!!!
(falls to hell)
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontious Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.
Luke 23:34: 'Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do...."
People addicted to cats.
John is a catholic. He has over 9000 cats.
A member of the Catholic Church, from the Greek Catholicos, meaning universal. Though often called the Roman Catholic Church, that Latin church is but one of the 21 churches in communion with the Pope, and the Roman rite is but one of the 7 rites of The Church. Though widely attacked for many things such as discrimination, the Catholic Church officially does not teach that if your not Catholic or not Christian you are going to Hell no matter what. Though all salvation comes through Jesus Christ and his Church, they do not say that non-Christians can't go to heaven, and call Jews "Brothers in Faith" and "People of the Old Covenant". The actions of a person or more emphasized in Catholicism than in Protestantism, which adheres to faith alone. Also, the Catholic Church takes a critical approach to Biblical studies, and not everything is taken literally. Tradition plays a huge role in the practices of the Church, and not just Scriptures. Tradition can not contradict scriptures. Mary is not worshipped, she is venerated or honored. Adoration i.e. worship is for God alone. The Eucharist is celebrated at every Mass, and Catholics believe in Transubstantiation. This is the belief that the body and blood of Christ are present in the Eucharist. The Catholic Church has apologized to the Jews formally for sins of Catholics against them, and to the Muslims for the crusades.
Catholics number over a billion, is the oldest religious organization in the world. To judge one sixth of the Earth's population so rigidly is close minded and ignorant
1. Being universal in scope or magnitude.
2. A member of the Catholic Church, one of the major branches of mainline Christianity
1. The King's tastes were catholic; everything from soup to nuts.
2. Much of Europe's great artwork deals with Catholic religious matter.
- The original form of Christianity.
- The church established by St. Peter the Apostle, through instruction from Jesus Christ.
- One who understands that the Holy Bible is a compilement of historical facts and events that are responsible for all existence.
I have faith, I'm Catholic.
The universal church, created by jesus, guided by the holy spirit and blessed by god. Often misunderstood as a set of rules one must follow. In actuallity the catholic church stresses the fact that jesus loves us and died for us and the rules are simply for our own good. The catholic church encourages its members to seek a personal relationship with god.
non-catholic: haha u can't fornicate.
catholic: yeah so.....?
The branch of Chrisianity in which all the prodestant braches can be traced to. We follow the pope as the closest living man to God. We belive that there is three persons (Father, Son and the Holy Spirit/Ghost) in one God. Catholics follow the example of Saints and ask them to interces to God and pray for us. We do not worship Mary and the Saints, we just emulate them and ask to pray for us as they are in the full presence of God in Heaven. We celbrate the Eucharist by consuming Christ's body and blood (REPRESENTED by the bread and wine). We believe that if you are truly sorry, you can be forgiven of any sin, if you are not sorry when you ask forgivness, that's basically another sin. Being comprised of humans, the Church is subject to fault like the Inqusitions. Catholics have been persecuted throughout history by the Romans and many militant, extremist Prodestants. Most negative things said about the Catholic Church is just plain lies or misunderstood practices.
Supposedly, Catholics are against homosexuals, say everyone is going to hell, have no maorals, extremely conservative, pagans etc. In reality, Catholics are tolerant, moral people. Alot of the negative things said about Catholics being intolerant etc are true of many evangelical protestants. So many people make wild accustions out of sometimes unfounded, blind hatred for the Catholic religeon.
