This always cracks me up. A saint cannot be a catholic, they must be a Christian only. And you can't make someone a saint, they have to live their life obedient to the Gospel of Christ.

Can religious bigots become saints?

If that's a joke, I don't get it.

FYI

A "Saint," is someone officially recognized as definitely (probably ... in all likelihood, etc.)having gone to Heaven. That's all. The rest is theater.

On a strictly theoretical, theological level, this "official recognition," is non-denominational. However, the Pope traditionally makes the most of the opportunity to certify dead folks as "Saints."

The Bishop of Rome and his organization may be the best at the "Saint" process, but they certainly are not alone. If one should survive drinking strychnine or snakebite at a service in West Virginia, or be from Salt Lake City, the Pope might not be unduly impressed, but other saint-sanctioning bodies will take up the slack.

A mullah cannot be a sunni, they must be a Muslim only.

MeekMom, would you PLEASE preface that remark with "According to my beliefs...."? I am a Catholic and I cannot tell you how much I resent your implication that Catholics cannot be Saints (honey, we invented that game!) and that Catholics are not Christians (Hmmmm....I think we invented THAT game also!)

Please note: I did not ask you what brand of religion you practice, and I would never attempt to tell you how to practice it, or what to believe, or even if you are Christian. Your obvious disdain for Catholicism adds nothing to the discussion at hand.

Pax

Scripture says this where? Or did Christ hand the keys to the kingdom to you for you to decide?
