Is a Catholic a Catholic if he never goes to Mass?
your reaction to this man trying to win over the bastion of Christian voters who vote as Christians
Catholics who attend weekly Mass vote as Christians, just as most "cultural Protestants" and "cultural Catholics" do not vote as Christians, and if a Catholic attends weekly Mass he is most likely impervious to Vines' method of argument.
is interesting, and bizarre
Interesting because I think Vines' rhetorical strategy needs to be examined, instead of being accepted uncritically?
My reaction is bizarre because I actually paid attention to what Vines' rhetorical strategy is? Should the proper reaction be to ignore what he is doing rather than try to pick it apart?
The gay marriage left depends on the vote of the Catholic denomination, and wrote a law promoted by the Catholic president, to import millions more Catholic voters, to advance the left’s agenda and to insure the future of the left and Europeanism over Americanism.
Now here we are on this thread arguing with the democrat owned denomination, about the Christians who are most hated by the left, the Evangelicals.
Should the proper reaction be to ignore what he is doing rather than try to pick it apart?
...don’t know...but the improper reaction to this particular article is to make a theologically charged statement, knowing that it will engender vituperative responses from the numerous Catholiphobes on this forum, and then engage these people with what can only be viewed as ancillary arguments, detracting from an article about which nearly universal agreement should result...
