“Vlad — did not leaders of the Roman Catholic Church kill Reformers during the so-called “Protestant Reformation”?”

1. Nope.
2. Anyone ever executed was executed by the state. The Church has never had nor wanted the authority or power to execute.
3. The killing of heretics in 1530 in no way negates what Christ did in 33.

“Did they not call for and affirm the murders of those who denounced the heresies of the Roman Catholic Church?”

1. Nope.
2. The Church has no heresies.
3. An execution does not a murder make.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m thinking that Sandusky was just the tip of the iceberg in this whole thing.

All those people on the board of Second Mile? I’d be as suspicious as h*ll.

“Your resorting to calling me a liar tells me that your argument has failed.”

Nope. I called you a liar because you lied about what I said. This is easy to prove. Here is the lie you told:
“Your faith in Jesus is defective, Vlad, that you believe He only works within your church bureaucracy.”

I do NOT believe that nor could you possibly deduce that I do based on anything I have ever said, written, or thought. Ever. It was a lie, a pure fabrication.

“You degrade Scripture by saying that Christ no longer has disciples as portrayed by Scripture, that the disciples Jesus had when He walked the earth are substantially different from the disciples He has now.”

That isn’t what I said. I just said you’re not one of them. And you’re not. And you never will be as a Protestant. Christ did not send a sect. He sent the Church.

“Jesus connected directly with people. He called for people to be in personal relationship with Him. He engaged people directly.”

Yes, and then He ascended into Heaven and sent the Church. The Church does what Christ did (again, John 20:19-23). You keep avoiding that verse.

“He said that He, personally, is the way and the truth and the life.”

Did He or did He not send the Church to the ends of the earth? It is amazing to me how your Protestants can’t think logically. Christ and the Church are not opposed to one another nor could they ever be. You keep trying to divide Christ from His body. You’re the one degrading scripture.

“Pretty much the only people that He condemned were the religious leaders, who insisted that people can only connect with God through the dominant religious establishment.”

No. He condemned them for their hypocrisy. He also condemned them for their man-made traditions. Protestantism is a man-made tradition.

“You, Vlad, seem to have more in common with the Pharisees and their cabal than with Jesus and His friends.”

And you’re still a liar. It always amazes me how quickly Protestants resort to lying and calling people pharisees.

“Jesus, while He walked the earth, was a Protestant, protesting loudly against the religious establishment that injected itself between God and people.”

No. Jesus was a Jew. He opposed sin and heresy. Protestantism is mired in sinful beginnings and is heretical in beliefs. And none of tha will stop you from lying again now will it?

Putting male homosexuals and boys together is a recipe for sexual predation. And, I don’t care if he pretends to be married to a woman—what did she know? The Boy Scouts figured it out long ago. The Catholic Church has suffered greatly and continues to hemorrhage money thanks to infiltration by deevs and a huge cover-up by the church. Now they are in the military. And now, they want same-sex adoption. You can lay the success of the movement at the feet of homowood where homosexual writers portray the deviant behavior as benign, intelligent and all about love. The difference between male homosexuals and same-sex pedophiles is like the difference between pale pink and bright pink.

I despise this case more than most given that PSU looked the other way when confronted with witness accounts. They will pay dearly now...

...they won’t pay where it counts most...on the football field. Come next september a hundred thousand fans will pack the place and all will be forgotten, and the good times will keep on rolling...now, if they’d done something really heinous, like get a sceretary from another department to type up memos for the atletic department, then it’d be worth the compulsory loss of a couple of recruits, and maybe a bowl ban...but in ncaa land, nothing to see here, move along now...

If nothing else, I hope the Sandusky scandal instills some much needed humility in Happy Valley...

...based on past observances, it appears that the ‘We Are Penn St.” bunch is oblivious that a word such as humility even exists...

Your recalcitrant ignorance versus my obvious, except to the chronically obtuse, truth apparently has us at odds...

...a word of advice, my friend...end your attempts at argument with vlad, for the sake of your reputation...he is making you look ridiculous...
