Quote# 2939

I really do hate the catholic church. They condemn people and make them feel terrible because they didn't fulfill all the church's dumb little requirements to be saved.

because when you're a fundie,all you have to do is say "I'm saved" and off to heaven you go.

(As long as you don't mind a lobotomy along with that)

Judges, can I get an irony reading on that, please?

Well, of course I wouldn't single out the Catholic church in the Making People Feel Terrible department, but I do remember how confusing it was when they told us little kids in Catholic Sunday school - those of us who were being good & obedient by attending in the first place - that we had to go to confession and recite that we were sorry for "choosing to sin and failing to do good." It's like when Microsoft Explorer freezes up against your will and doesn't let you do anything but close the program, and then the dialogue box says "You have chosen to end an unresponsive program."

(BTW, two of my childhood books were: one that told us in gentle, friendly lullaby tones that we had to go to confession to clean the cobwebs out of our souls, and one that featured garish, grotesque psychedelic drawings of toads and witches. Guess which book scared the crap out of me.)

There's plenty to criticize about the Catholic Church, but at least in Catholicism you have to try not to act like a prick before you get into Heaven.

And you IFBs are any different?

The Canadian Judges give it a 10.

And finally, the Baptists are honest. It's not that the Catholic church is heretic, or evil, or any of the bullshit they scream about it. It's because they're too lazy to be bothered to actually EARN their salvation, and as such, the Catholic dogma is too much work for them, what with actually expecting them to be good, and not letting them get away with clutching Jeebus' robes, and hitching a ride to heaven.

There are many reasons to be wary of the Catholic Church, and there are huge, gaping holes in the wacky logic they've used to form most of their doctrines and dogma, and as someone who had the very great misfortune to have been raised Catholic, I do agree that there are Catholics, even today, who enjoy making others feel less worthy in God's eyes, but really, sweetie, how are you any better? You condemn people right off the bat because they won't recite the magic words, "I accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior". And, for you, once you've said the magic spell, you can commence beating your wife and kids, sexually assaulting others, stealing, cheating, murdering, etc., and you're still "saved".

So who's worse in the long run? It's hard to say, isn't it?

I was raised a Catholic, and we never had to get "saved". We believed you got into heaven by like, being a good person and stuff.

As opposed to your dumb requirements. Oh, I forgot it is you and only you that have correctly interpreted the ancient manuscripts.
