"just leave us alone."

The headline is "Protestants and the rosary", don't you think at least one of us is going to speak up?

If you don't like it, you leave us alone.

I apologize....I have seen so many Catholic bashing threads lately that it’s getting very disturbing.

Some time ago Christianity Today had an excellent article on Evangelicals and Mary. I can see where the saying of the Hail Mary would be a problem for Protestants. But the concept of the Rosary to meditate on the Life of Christ while saying set prayers could find valid application in Protestantism.

Why not instead of reciting a Hail Mary recite one of the Psalms while meditating on Jesus. An example would be to recite psalm 22 while meditating on Christ’s death on the cross. Prayer is part of Christian discipline. With all the distractions we have isn’t it good to have a means of turning all our attention to the Lord? This is what the Rosary does for some.
