    If Trump becomes the nominee, he would be the most unpopular nominee ever, unable to even come close to Mitt Romney’s insufficient support among women, minorities, and young people. In losing disastrously, Trump probably would create down-ballot carnage sufficient to end even Republican control of the House and Senate.

    But like the three proverbial monkeys, Trumpkins are immune to reason and this is why the conman (Trump University) and snake oil salesman (Trump Shuttle; Trump Steaks, Trump Vodka) has no problem insulting his devoted followers by letting them know he could spray a volleys of bullets at them in the middle of Fifth Avenue and they’d roll over and vote for him. Jim Jones would be proud of this crowd.

    This is why dyed in the blue conservatives like Rush L have called Cruz the right person to claim Reagan’s mantle as has Mark Levin.

    Trumpkins are like lemmings going over the cliff just please don’t take the rest of us over the cliff by having Hillary thrash him even in the reddest of red states like Utah.

    Trumpkins need to wake up.

    George Bush got more votes than Trump in the NY Republican primary in 2000.

    Sanders drew large 10+ k crowds in NY and got thrashed by Hillary to the tune of 15% points. Go figure. The conman and salesman is crashing to Hilary in the general elections by double digits and has sky high negatives among women. Trump is a large blimp waiting to explode and burn to the ground.

    But the Protestant church world is incredibly divided into hundreds if not thousands of groups, and splinter groups from those main groups.

    Protestantism PROVES the falsity of sola sciptura or one can achieve doctrinal truths from the bible ALONE. If such were true, then

    Protestants have NO SCRIPTURAL AUTHORITY for how they INTERPRET scripture.

    Each group has their own David Koresh or Jim Jones or Billy Graham or the local neighborhood Four Square Church pastor authority, or pastor of First Baptist, First Lutheran, or First whatever. for interpreting scripture THEIR WAY.

    Is the body of Christ divided into 30,000 ways of understanding doctrine? Or is there one body and one faith?

    Catholic Church Fathers (those early theologians) spent the better part of some 300 years sorting out hundreds of written texts and fragments before they assembled the canonical texts. This was a full ELEVEN CENTURIES before the heresy of Protestantism washed ashore and itself fell on fallow ground that it sprouted thousands of sects of hybrid varieties from the likes of Billy Graham’s vapid interpretation of scripture to the deadly Jim Jones and comical Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Many of them like wild mushrooms have withered away.

    Moreover, as stated before, the Catholic intellectual tradition, to cite only Augustine, Aquinas, Newman, and Benedict after whom colleges and universities have been named, encourages the pursuit of truth on God’s Word against a world of heretics. Catholicism hasn’t gone down the hellhole of Protestantism where every Jack and Jill is allowed to crack open the pages of the Bible and offer us “his” or “her” definitive versions of God’s Word.

    When doctrinal disputes occurred in the first and second century, they were resolved by the Church. Why? Because it alone is the teaching authority given by Christ to all peoples for all times.

    So all this citation to scripture by ealgeone; elsie, metmom, etc is of no use. Each is assuming his or her own teaching authority.

    At the end of the day, you are either a Catholic or a non-Catholic.

    The problem with Protestantism is those who have researched it, taught, and preached it for a lifetime have admitted it is false in all its forms. Having drive-by internet “theologians” cut and paste semi-literate stuff from notoriously anti—Catholic websites are of little use.

    Famed English writer Hillaire Belloc put it best when he said that unlike other heresies “Protestantism spawned a cluster of heresies.” In short, they were like cancer cells that divides themselves.

    2000 years of unbroken Church tradition dating back to the teachings and practice of the early disciples of Christ cannot be swept aside by puerile interpretations of scriptural text as if one were reading a book by Dr. Seuss on green eggs and ham.

    These were written and translated from Aramaic, Hebrew to Greek, and underwent years of interpretation. One cannot make the serious claim that any Tom, Dick, and Harry can crack open the pages of the Bible and offer us “his” or “her” definitive integration of God’s Word. Christ gave an “authority” to Peter and his his successor to teach ONE truth. They wrote, believed and practiced “Eucharist” belief as the true Body and Blood of Chirst. This goes back to nearly 2000 years.

    BEFORE, scripture the Catholic Church existed. This is what the theologians and scholars tells us. Even Luther himself acknowledged that weren’t it for the Catholic Church there would be no Bible.

    This is emphatically not about belonging to ANY “denominational affiliation.”

    You are either a Catholic or you are not.

    This is about One Church with One truth. You can’t say it doesn’t matter if you affiliate with the vapid nonsense of Billy Graham or Joel Osteen or David Koresh or Jim Jones.

    This is all about “authority” given to Peter and his successors to teach ONE truth. This is why there is a galaxy of minds from different constellations from atheists to Buddhists to Hindus to scientists from every denomination of Protestantism who have now come to embrace the Catholic Church.

    All the rest of the stuff put out by Protestant writers and blogs makes for useless and irrelevant reading. Try doing some serious reading on the books by Benedict XVI that TIME called the “greatest living theologian” or Augustine or Aquinas. We have a litany of saints and martyrs.

    Why would any sensible Catholic spend so much as a second on reading Protestant drivel that has been called so by leading Protestant theologians to Catholicism.

    All we Catholics assert is that this was the interpretation the early disciples, taught by the Apostles, understood an practiced under the command of Christ to go forth and teach...

    We cannot attribute interpretations offered by every Biblical reader on scripture where a single truth collapses into a thousand interpretations. We have the sacred oral tradition before scripture was written and indeed was tradition was used as a cross reference to confirm what texts were legitimate and what were not.

    One Church, one teaching from early Church fathers as to what Christ meant and affirmed by every leading theologian for two centuries, including several Protestant theologians who converted to Catholicism. Drive-by individual interpretations are worse than useless, they are heretical and misleading.

    Here’s proof.

    “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life. 6:48 I am the bread of life. 6:49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 6:50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die.”

    6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

    6:52 The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”

    Jesus now doubles-down and does not try to correct his literal meaning.

    6:53 So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you; 6:54 he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 6:55 For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

    Don’t forget these words of Jesus which were spoken in the course of his ministry anticipating the institution of the Eucharist in the context of the final Passover Supper which Jesus shared with His apostles. And the Church, from the very beginning, has continued to repeat the words of consecration spoken by our Lord at that supper with the firm conviction that Christ is truly present in some manner in the consecrated Bread and Wine, now Body and Blood.

    A sign of the reality of Presence of Christ in the Eucharist may be seen in what St. Paul wrote to the Corinthians, in which he not only repeated the words and actions of the Last Supper but notes the punishment upon those who unworthily receive the Holy Eucharist:

    11:23 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 11:24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 11:25 In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 11:26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. 11:27 Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. 11:28 Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 11:29 For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself.

    There you go again. Selective quotes that have been demolished by theologians through the centuries including Protestant theologians who converted to Catholicism. You exclude references to the the explicit mission given to Peter as the rock on which Christ founds His Church with the unequivocal authority that whatever is bound on earth will be bound in heaven etc....

    Similarly, you show no understanding of the sacred oral tradition that existed prior to scripture and was used as a reference point to cross-check the accuracy of the many written scripts by the early Church fathers.

    Is the Bible the sole “teaching from God?” No. The Bible itself states that their are “oral” teachings and traditions that are to be carried on to the present-day (2 Thessalonians 2:15; 1 Corinthians 11:2; 2 Timothy 2:2; Romans 10:17; 1 Peter 1:24-25). These teachings are what the Catholic Church considers “Sacred Apostolic Tradition.”

    In the year 110 A.D., not even fifteen years after the book of Revelation was written, while on his way to execution, St. Ignatius of Antioch wrote: “Where the bishop is present, there let the congregation gather, just as where Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic church”. The Church believes that when the bishops speak as teachers, Christ speaks; for he said to them: “He who hears you, hears me; and he who rejects you, rejects me” (Lk 10, 16).

    You might like to know what Dr. A. David Anders has to say. He was born, raised and educated, as an Evangelical Protestant and studied Wheaton College. He set out deliberately to show why Catholicism was wrong. This was a long historical and scholarly quest. He ended up a Catholic convert.

    He brilliantly essays the belief in the Eucharist and other Catholic doctrine in these compelling terms:

    Here’s a quote from his conversion process to Catholicism:

    “By the time I finished my Ph.D., I had completely revised my understanding of the Catholic Church. I saw that her sacramental doctrine, her view of salvation, her veneration of Mary and the saints, and her claims to authority were all grounded in Scripture, in the oldest traditions, and in the plain teaching of Christ and the apostles. “

    “I also realized that Protestantism was a confused mass of inconsistencies and tortured logic. Not only was Protestant doctrine untrue, it bred contention, and could not even remain unchanged.”

    The more I studied, the more I realized that my evangelical heritage had moved far not only from ancient Christianity, but even from the teaching of her own Protestant founders.”

    What we have here are drive-by internet “theologians” attempting to undermine the solid Catholic teaching of two millennia. Not only is this irrefutable Catholic teaching as the Church founded by Christ and instructed to teach ONE truth for ALL times to ALL people, it is one embraced by many leading Protestant theologians who after a lifetime of study and teaching, and serious reflection converted to Catholicism. I’d rather take their research that the out-of-content cut and paste stuff done lifted by armchairs critics of the Church who get their stuff from anti-Catholic websites sponsored by semi-literate pastors and self described “theologians.”

    Take for example Rev. Richard John Neuhaus. He was America’s pre-eminent Lutheran theologian. He knew his Bible-text and history like no other Protestant in his time having taught and written extensively on the subject all his life. When Rev. Neuhaus converted to Catholicism he said, “I have long believed that the Roman Catholic Church is the fullest expression of the church of Christ through time.”

    Take another case Francis J. Beckwith. He is a “born-again” evangelical, a tenured professor at Baptist-affiliated Baylor University in Waco, Tex, was the president of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS), an association of 4,300 Protestant theologians who resigned and rejoined the Catholic Church.

    Why? Because after having reviewed the materials from both sides, he changes his position and reverts to Catholicism.

    Then there is Ulf Ekman, the founder of Scandinavia’s biggest Bible school. He led a a congregation of some 4000 individuals, converted to Catholicism because his theological inquiry confirmed for him the indispensability of the Catholic sacraments.

    Other examples abound.

    There is Catholicism, and the there is every other piece of rot out there from Joel Ostend’s “prosperity” gospel to Rev. Wright’s “God Damn America,” gospel to the lunatic followers of Rev. Moon, Rev. Jim Jones, and Rev. David Koresh. Each person arrogates to himself and herself, like metmom and other do here, and to lift isolated scriptural passages for conducting a driveby superficial analysis that contradicts the towering intellectual tradition of the Church including a string of eminent Episcopalian (Cardinal Newman) and Protestant, (yes actual scholars, historians, and theologians) who upon examining the beliefs of the Catholic Church, in good conscience, abandoned their prior false convictions, and converted to Catholicism.

    Please! How inane! The Catholic Church existed before Scripture. The teaching of the Church includes not only the strong scriptural passages cited in Verga’s post but also the sacred oral and liturgical tradition of the Catholic Church.

    The narrative of St. Luke must ultimately be traced back to the testimony of Our Blessed Lady. The evangelist himself points to Mary as the source of his account of the infancy of Jesus, when he says that Mary kept all these words in her heart (2:19, 51)

    Scriptura Sola folks wade in shallow theological waters and have no clue of the great and towering intellectual tradition of the Catholic Church that spans centuries of scholarship, theology, ritual, and teaching.

    Apparently you are not reading the various posts. Go check the posts that were sent to ealgeone on the second Pope- Pope Linus in AD 67-76 and check out the line of succession. Of course, no one accepts you to consider this as proof even if a broad spectrum of distinguished historians, scholars, and theologians have done so including several such Protestants who converted to Catholicism.

    What is apparent, is that many non-Catholics fish out of a pool of ant-Catholic diatribe written by folks, arm-chair internet theologians, whose works have never been peer evaluated for their historical authenticity but rather by stringing together disparate quotes and writings.

    Even the early Church had discussions, disagreements and debates and these were finally settled by the doctrine of infallibility as given by Christ to Peter. This is a historical truth. To Elsie, this is all evidence of “confusion,” just as often as non-Catholics are hopelessly confused about the lives of individual popes with formal doctrine.

    You really are one great “internet theologian” that trumps everybody else (scholars, historians, Augustine, Aquinas, Benedict including noted Protestant scholars who converted to Catholicism) who all disagree with you.

    There were thousands of written fragments that early followers were using but they all were part of the first Church. The compilation of the books in the Bible itself was in AD 382. This early Church was the Catholic Church dating from Christ and Peter to his successors beginning with Pope Linus.

    All the ancient records of the Roman bishops which have been handed down to us by St. Irenaeus, Julius Africanus, St. Hippolytus, Eusebius, also the Liberian catalogue of 354, place the name of Linus directly after that of the Prince of the Apostles, St. Peter. These records are traced back to a list of the Roman bishops which existed in the time of Pope Eleutherus (about 174-189), when Irenaeus wrote his book “Adversus haereses”. This author claims that Pope Linus is the Linus mentioned by St. Paul in his 2 Timothy 4:21. The passage by Irenaeus (Against Heresies III.3.3) reads:

    “After the Holy Apostles (Peter and Paul) had founded and set the Church in order (in Rome) they gave over the exercise of the episcopal office to Linus. The same Linus is mentioned by St. Paul in his Epistle to Timothy. His successor was Anacletus.” Linus reigned from about A.D. 64

    Keep making a fool of yourself.

    The Catholic Church existed BEFORE Scripture. Before, the books in the Bible were assembled in AD 382 by the Council of Rome they were laboriously examined, cross-checked against the sacred oral tradition, and determined to be the authentic WRITTEN Word of God. The sacred oral tradition, rituals, and liturgy, and veneration continued from the earliest of times. Indeed, carvings of Mary have seen been unearthed that date back to the third century.

    This is what typically occurs when fools rush in where angels fear to tread. Never mind the towering intellectual tradition of the Church, we have third rate Protestant self-taught “scholars” throwing around snippets of Scripture as if this the end and be all of it.

    Trumpkins will twist themselves into a pretzel and take a volley of bullets in the middle of Fifth Avenue to defend their “Dear Leader.”

    This is what happens when historical neophytes try their hand at attempting to undermine Catholicism.

    The seven great letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch, written around the year 106 while on his way to Rome to be thrown to the beasts, take for granted the existence of local hierarchical churches, ruled by bishops who are assisted by priests and deacons. Ignatius, a living disciple of John the Apostle, writes that “Jesus the will of the Father, just as the bishops, who have been appointed throughout the world, are the will of Jesus Christ. Let us be careful, then, if we would be submissive to God, not to oppose the bishop.”

    Within each city there was a single church under a bishop, who in turn was assisted by priests in the spiritual realm and deacons in the administrative. The latter devoted themselves especially to alms-giving, and a striking feature of primitive Christianity is its organized benevolence. These local churches were largely self-sufficient but would group around a mother church in the region — Antioch, Alexandria, Rome — and the bishops of each region would occasionally meet in councils. But they all considered themselves part of a universal Church — the Catholic Church, as Ignatius first called it — united in belief, ritual, and regulation.

    Trumpism is no substitute to reasoned argument. It displays a vacuous mind not unlike the conman and snake oil salesman that 70% of the electorate now say they have a negative view of the man and even shows Benrie beating your “Dean Leader” by a walloping 17% pints.

    Hard to catch up with 10 anti-Cruz posts and 50 Trumpian posts each minute. It helps to occasionally pierce the echo-chamber.

    The level of comprehension of Trumpkins equal that of there Dear Leader. In politics, hypocrisy is something we always expose. This is what we are saying here as Trump talks of his great relatives and in-laws. Now, if this offends your delicate sensibilities please say so.
