What are you doing on this thread? Do you see Catholics jumping onto your protestant threads and hijacking the conversation? Go pretend that Pastor Billy Bob from whatever fruitcake nondenominational church you belong to has all the answers. Feel free to believe that the bible was dropped from heaven into the hands of Martin Luther. Go tell all your friends at your bible study that the "papists" are going to hell. Go do all of this. But please just go!

Thanks for your thoughtful response.

As long as your friends continue to engage me in conversation, I'll probably hang around.

Well, hold it...

We are called to witness our Christian faith to apostates and unbelievers. It is indeed inconvenient to deal with obnoxious posters who do not come here to learn, but to disrupt. At the same time, one clear answer should be given to clear questions they pose, even if they themselves have no intention to comprehend or even acknowledge the answer. Often what they ask on the thread, many readers ask inwardly, and for their benefit we should respond.

There is also a tactic used by anti-Catholics, and generally by those who do not have the intellectual upper hand in a dispute. That tactic is to create grounds for a complaint that the Catholics (in this case) want to stick to themselves and shun debate. Let us not play into their hands.

Excellent point(s). I can't recall a Prot thread wherein we have jumped in on them, although I'm all but certain someone will find one.
