"Which foolish statement?"

he statement that ALL protestants believed in perpetual virginity. Posting quotes from a few men and then claiming that all believed this shows the authors ignorance and agenda.

Learn to read. The author states in the first sentence of the article that "All of the early Protestant *Founders* accepted the truth of the Perpetual Virginity of Mary." Founders.

"All of the early Protestant Founders accepted the truth of the Perpetual Virginity of Mary ----- contrary to the original consensus of the early Protestants. "

Luther,Calvin, and Wesley are not "all" the Founders or would they prove a censensus of early Christians as this guy tries to imply.

Luther had trouble with the book of James so I wouldn't put to much stock in all his views. I also disagree with Calvin and Wesley on some of their views.

Catholics are constantly quoting fallible men to prove their false doctrine. Notice that nowhere in this article is a scripture quoted as a source, only what man thought. Typical catholicism: doctrinal proof based on how old, and how many men preached the falsehood.

This author makes an assumption, declares it as truth, and proceeds to base his argument on his assumption.

Now i'll ask you again.Can you prove that ALL founding Prots believed this? If not keep your wise remarks to yourself and stop wasting bandwith with the writings of this idiot.
