"Has the Catholic Church refused to give the Sacrement to Nancy Pelosi or John Kerry recently?"
LOL. It figures, just more of the same old, worn out, noise.
But, that's Ok. I understand that pointing out Catholics who behave just like Protestants is the only way some people have of avoiding the fact that the majority of Protestants are no longer Christian.
The US is now and always has been overwhelmingly Protestant.
Why not step up, take a bow, and accept a share of the credit for helping to build the wonderful Protestant society the Protestant majority has created in this country?
Oh, and by the by, both those folks have been told not to bother trying to take Communion in various parts of the country by a number of Bishops. Including now Cardinal Burke. I'm sure they can find some priest or bishop who wants to be Protestant in all but name and will permit them to partake, though.
You know, the sort people who if Protestant would deliver the prayer at the King Barry coronation or run a mega church that doesn't see anything wrong with queers marrying one another. That sort of priest and bishop can't stand being in the minority in this overwhelmingly Protestant nation and so they behave like Protestants in hopes of being accepted by the majority.
Fortunately for the majority of folks who claim to be Protestant Christians, they have no need to dig up a liberal priest since they're each their own highest authority. They would never deny themselves communion, nor would they deny themselves contraception, abortion, queer pastors, queer weddings, or anything else MTV and Hollyweird tell them is "the thing to do".
have a nice day
My goodness. It must really offend your sensibilities to reside in this country. There are majority Catholic countries in the world, you know. Maybe you should expatriate to one.
You need to get out more. If that’s your view of American Christianity apart from Rome, you’re welcome to it, but It’s not what I grew up with. What you just described sounds more like my Catholic relatives in the Chicago area. They pushed abortion and a life of misery on someone I dearly love. No. I don’t generalize against the whole Catholic membership because of that bad experience. The Lord knows those that are his. Just saying that hearing the stereotypes that tear down people who love the same God and the same Jesus and mostly the same Bible, well, I’m not sure who that edifies. But your stereotypes do not match the reality for a whole lot of people. That’s why I try to avoid them. Stereotypes, that is. I’m ok with people. :)
Overall true, according to what they effectually teach, despite what some may yet officially state, but contrary to some of your Traditional brethren, at least you recognize that perhaps some of those in such denoms were Christian.
However the Protestants who no longer are Christian are not only like RCs overall, but are are treated like members in life and in death (including Teddy K.) And it can be argued that this kind of Catholicism is what is being effectually conveyed, despite what is officially stated.
In addition, unlike us who can separate from such churches that will not effectively deal with pro abortion, pro homosexual, etc. members, which conversion plus strong evangelical type preaching usually reduces anyway, RCs are stuck with them, unlike they become part of the Catholic schisms or denoms.
