The whole point of the Reformation in the first place was picking and choosing what you feel like believing in based on your personal opinions about your favorite Bible passages. Kind of odd to criticize “Chris” for taking that flawed methodology to its inevitable conclusion.

You said: “The whole point of the Reformation in the first place was picking and choosing what you feel like believing in based on your personal opinions about your favorite Bible passages.”

This tells me you know ZILCH about the Reformation or even Catholicism for that matter.

This was not the intent behind the Reformation.

It was, however, to a considerable extent the long term effect.

More accurately, this is what you get with freedom of religion. Maintaining a consistent body of doctrine requires coercion of those who dare to disagree.
