So the liberals see themselves as Mother Theresa? ;)

Oh as for mainline, why not have the Catholic church see them as Henry VIII?

LOL Liberals see Catholics as breeders, Liberals as Mother Theresa, Reformed as argumentative, Evangelical as George Bush, and Charismatic as snake handlers.

Was once engaged in a conversation with Mom. Asked what her religious preference was and she answered Presbyterian. My response was, Mom you may as well be an atheist. After the tongue lashing I received, there was never ever a mention of religious banter to her from me. Rule One and Rule Two.

Pretty funny. The Charismatic Christians deserved a better pic of how they perceive themselves! That kinda looks like a Type O Negative concert, what with the spooky green lighting.

I enjoyed Mother Angelica. I used to watch EWTN just to see her show. She was funny (both intentionally and unintentionally) but she had a big heart.

Funny :)

But I don't understand the pictures for:

  1. Catholic view of Charismatic
  2. liberal view of evangelical (isn't George W Bush a Methodist?)
  3. Evangelical view of Reformed (aren't the reformed among the more stricter prohibitionists?)

Could it be because of the small numbers or the perception of small numbers of the Eastern Orthodox by other Christians.

I had to think about Catholic->Charismatic. Not sure I got that one myself, but is that supposed to represent an unrecognizable mess?

W is a Methodist, but he pandered to the Evangelicals, especially early on, IIRC.

And contrary to popular belief, Reformed folk are encouraged use their liberty in deciding whether to have a drink, or not. Neither position should lord over the other in this position.. The Puritans had taverns next to the church so they could have a drink during breaks in their all day worship services. B.B. Warfield, who was one of our great theologians of the early 20th century, did not drink, until the prohibition movement started. Then, in protest of the movement, he felt it necessary to have a glass of wine when he dined in public.

I don't expect you to run out and buy this, ;-) but there is a good little book on the subject titled Drinking with Calvin and Luther: A History of Alcohol in the Church. It provides an overview on drink and how the church has dealt with the issue since the Reformation.

“Catholic view of Charismatic”

The typical Charismatic service is maybe seen as chaotic....

How are they defining Reformed vs Evangelical?

I don’t get the baby pic for how Reformed sees Evangelical.

“I don’t get the baby pic for how Reformed sees Evangelical.”

that Evangelicals are immature..will, hopefully, become Reformed when they grow up.

That’s my (Catholic) take anyway. The one I don’t get is the Catholic view of Evangelicals.

That may be a reference to Mark 7:27-28 with the Evangelicals being the dogs and the Catholics being the children.

yes, i understood that one. The one I don’t understand is the Catholic view of Evangelicals.

Assenting Catholics tend to admire Evangelicals for their religious zeal and for their commitment to moral truth in the defense of human life. It is with sadness that Catholics view how Evangelicals, by limiting themselves to "the Bible Alone", are excluding themselves from the sacraments which Jesus Christ instituted and commissioned his Apostles to share. They are only receiving the table scraps of God's sacramental graces rather than taking the place He offers them at His banquet table.

I confess to watching her program sometimes despite not exactly agreeing with Catholic theology.

I saw this the other day and found it quite funny.

In fact, among some younger Reformed, there actually is a problem with many exalting the “coolness” of drinking/smoking pipes too much in reaction to the prohibitionist people.

It isn’t too common, but I’ve seen it being Reformed myself.
