There’s lots of evils. And anti-Catholicism is one of the worst.
Yeah, it tops murder, rape, child molestation, human trafficking, arson and whole host of other felonies. When Jesus railed against the Pharisees, He was seen as the worst threat also.
If Christians, instead of attacking each other (what comes to mind especially is the vicious hatred towards Catholicism, I remember one incident when a statue of Mother Mary fell while in a procession in some South American country, and the glee that caused among some Catholic haters), but preached to atheists, what a different world it would be.
There are millions and billions of people with either no faith in God at all, or messed up faith in something they may think is “God” but is a creation of their own minds, or a wretched misunderstanding. For instance, thinking that “God” will be pleased by torturing and killing people for “Him”, etc.
The attacks in particular against the Catholic path disgust me because they are so extreme. If people used their energy to convince atheists of God’s existence, instead of attacking others who also worship God and accept the teachings and person of Jesus Christ - imagine how different things would be.
That is my position. I can see not one single good reason for such attacks and hatred, whether against Catholics or Protestants. Defending oneself is a different matter; if one’s faith is blasphemed, then it is a sacred duty to speak the truth. But since FR (and I guess other places, I don’t know or go to such places) has hammer and tongs hatefests in the religion forum, maybe if the people whose faith is being attacked just didn’t show up on the thread, the attacks would stop.
Just an idea.
Theres lots of evils. And anti-Catholicism is one of the worst.
Top 10 worst? Perhaps you can share the prioritized list of evils for all of our benefits.
