Diamond,

OK, my apologies. Rebuke rightfully made, and humbly accepted. I was wrong, and yes I was being uncharitable and setting a poor example for my Christian brothers and sisters here. I already apologized privately to one of my Catholic peers here for giving scandal by my anger on this thread (no better way to gut your witness and patient efforts at apologetics than to get angry and return insult with insult, as you point out), and he defended you:

My comment: "By the way, unfortunately I really lost my temper on this thread when the Jack Chick brigade showed up. I really blew it. Sorry."

His reply: Kind of got a kick out of it, actually. Diamond is pretty mellow, he isn’t a "Catholics are the antichrist type," but he wasn’t your initial target anyway.

Again, my aplogies,

proud2bRC

Confession is good for the soul.

"Diamond is pretty mellow, he isn’t a "Catholics are the antichrist type"

If I were to call Roman Catholics the antichrist then I would have to believe that I've been sleeping with a whore of Babylon for 22 years - "Wouldn't be prudent" (hehehe)

Cordially,

Fallen away Catholics are hard to deal with. My sister in law is a cradle Catholic, left the Church became a Lutheran, came back, left again became a Jehoviah Witness, came back again, left again and is now in a non denominational church which has lost two pastors in two months. Still she puts down my faith every chance she gets. Her church will most likely not even be there this time next month. She wants a church to fit her lifestyle, not a life style to fit her church.
