Quote# 24539

ALL of the major holidays are pagan, which is why true Christians (like us) don't celebrate them. Catholics are NOT Christian and never were. Get your facts straight, please.

So you don't celebrate Easter or Christmas?

They started out pagan and were swallowed hard by the christians.

Catholics were the only christians before the reformations and splits from the main church body.

So, wrong. Get your facts straight, please.

Then Christianity died long ago.

Least informed about their own religion award?

No Easter? No Christmas? Then what the fuck's the point in being Christian?

Thats funny, the Catholics say the same thing about you. Which one of you are we supposed to believe?

5/2/2007 10:23:58 AM


Reformation, bitch.

Your doctrine and your Bible came directly from bishops in the catholic church. Much of what the early Christians believed got swallowed up when the institutional (catholic) church took over and a fourth century bishop decided which books should be included in the New Testament canon.

You don't know your own history.

Ah. another one.

Independant Fundamental Baptists, Church of Christ members, and Calvinists all top the Fundie food chain. The only problem is, if you belong to either of the three sects, the members of the other two sects will consider your sect a \"cult\".

I'm afraid it's you who is grossly misinformed.

No more Easter or Christmas for you then. And Catholics most definitely are Christians. They worship Christ, and thus, they *are* by definition Christians.

5/2/2007 2:09:18 PM


Yes, yes, yes - that's how we pagans take over the world!

Hope everybody had a great Beltaine! :) (that's May day for you, that's when the witches meet to dance and fornicae with the devil! :rolleyes: )

Except, by the sheer fact that they worship Jesus as divine and believe in the Christian God, they ARE Christian. And the Protestant (even Baptist) denominations branched off from them.

Get YOUR facts straight, please.

The old \"nobody's a Christian except the members of our sect\" nonsense. Another sucker falling for the self-invented \"Baptist successionism\" myth, no doubt.

If Catholics were no Christians, Christianity wouldn´t exist in the first place. And repeat it next time you celebrate Christmas or Easter. You´ll find many surprises.

This quote made me burst out laughing - someone is clearly unaware of the fact that Christmas is celebrated as Christ's birthday.

And honestly, again with the whole \"Catholics Aren't True Christians!\" bollocks. If we aren't Christian, what are we? Muslim? :P

Is there any point in trying to explain to these people that modern Christianity might not even exist without the Catholic church, and if it did it would have come from an Orthodox tradition, which is rather more mystical?

At the end of the day this is mostly Martin Luther's fault for championing a democratic Bible (something a lot of modern fundies don't seem to understand) while militating against critical thinking (the fact that short-bussers have been trying to kill each other over theological points over the years is a function of general assholishness; religion is merely the enabling excuse). The end result: a theological train wreck where the Bible is divorced from its cultural context and pop theology is the province of closed-minded retards.

No thanks. I'll take the ivory tower.

Aye laddie! Have you seen a real scotsman? Didn' think so.

5/2/2007 6:15:10 PM


Another sucker falling for the self-invented \"Baptist successionism\" myth, no doubt.

Maybe its Baptists say the darndest things!

So close, and yet soooooo far away...

Well you're missing out. You'd love the pagan Feast of Self-Gratification.

Fact: you're fucking stupid.
