"Being told as a child that a Protestant friend who died would ‘roast in Hell’ was more distressing."

This, in addition to being a lie, is a *stupid* lie. No matter what this unfortunate woman was allegedly told, it is not a teaching of the Catholic Church that people go to hell for being Protestants.

But of course, one can refute an argument but one cannot refute an anecdote. So by presenting it as the testimony of an unnamed victim, he ensures that you can't say it nay without seeming mean and insensitive to this (probably nonexistent) individual.

Gay State, let's pray for him. It's in the Book.

Pray for him. I pity him for not being brought up in a loving, stable Catholic home.

He’s like an actor opining about politics. Knows nothing. Pray for hin. Even though he’s a bitter soul, God will not be mocked.

You always default to the latter. Goes with the command to love one’s enemies . . .
