allylloyd: ciberido: allylloyd: Farce-Side: Number40: So, what you're saying...is Catholics are the only Christians to celebrate mass?

You should stop now.  You're embarrassing yourself.   Your self awareness is inversely proportional to your weight and stupidity.

I don't think any Catholics celebrate mass...I think most of them attend begrudgingly.

Methodists don't have mass, Baptists don't have mass.  I don't know about all those other Protestants.

Believe it or not, all Churches are celebrating Mass.

No.


The reason why some Protestants don't celebrate the Holy Communion is because it's considered a "Catholic" thing to do and

No.

Protestant churches as in NON-denominational Churches. Most denominational churches will celebrate Holy Communion. Not using wine makes no sense, however. Holy Communion celebrates the Last Supper, a Passover Seder. Wine is always served then. Grape juice is for the kids...


Well, other than the fact that the Seder was invented after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70CE. The origins of the Haggadah didn't appear until around 200CE, and what would be called a Seder didn't reach its current form until the fifth century CE.

Other than that, and the fact that Jews find ritual cannibalism abhorrent beyond words ...

grumpfuff: budrojr: grumpfuff: budrojr: Here is an atheist who actually understands more about Christianity than most Christians, and isn't misinterpreting things, taking things out of context, or just believes patently false information.

This is far more common than you think.

Not on this site it isn't.

You may be shocked to learn this, but there is a world outside of Fark.


Blasphemer!

This is a pretty typical xtian here.  Has no idea what they are talking about but insists on sticking to their guns anyway.

Believe it or not, all Churches are celebrating Mass. How? Why? Because, Mass means the Holy Eucharist (which means Great Thanksgiving). The purpose of any and all Church services is to give thanks to God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Communion, however, is something else.  The Holy Communion is a sacrament to celebrate the Last Supper. The Roman Catholic, Episcopalian/Anglican and Orthodox churches all celebrate Holy Communion. It's a standard. Some Protestant Churches: Lutheran, Methodists also celebrate it.
The reason why some Protestants don't celebrate the Holy Communion is because it's considered a "Catholic" thing to do and once upon a time, you had to be baptized into the Catholic Church in order to receive it. (Receive it means getting the bread/wine.) Things have changed. If you are baptized Christian, you can receive Holy Communion. If you aren't a baptized Christian, you can still receive Holy Communion. And if you don't want to receive it, you can ask for a Blessing instead.

//A member of my church is Jewish. She receives Holy Communion because she's moved by its message.


Religiously, she is apostate. She is not counted as a Jew for any religious observance.

enigmaticsource: MisterTweak: ... My eyes aren't the best, but if I squint a little I might be able to read it... "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; "

Yep, some church people are all kinds of well, stupid; and it paints us all in a bad light.  But on the bright side I'm working on some flash for a fellow church member (and a Baptist type person).

/Yep, he's a deacon, In his 50's
//Yay Baptists?! (and may Fred Phelps either get saved quick, or find a nice cold spot in hell)
\\\ CSB, and this post sponsored by vodka, et al.


absolutely. I have one relative who's a jesuit monsignor and another who is a rabbi (of some type - I don't know as much about clerical distinctions in judaism). Both are incredibly intelligent and the most enjoyable, curious, thought-provoking people I could hope to spend an evening around a dinner table with. They'll both happily take any side of any agrument just for fun - from capital punishment to abortion to guns. The only topic that both of them seem to hold absolutely as off-limits is baseball; one is a yankees fan and the other likes the Mets (from my wife's side of the family - no explaining for taste)

What they have in common with the Roy Moores of the country is... well, about as much as a formula one driver has in common with a drunk in a rusty pickup; the vehicle bares a vague resemblance but that's about it.

allylloyd: In the US, interracial (skin color) marriage wasn't allowed due to racial prejudices, not religious ones.


True, but lots of those racists justified their racism by hiding behind their religion (whether it really says what they want it to or not), just like lots of anti-gay bigots today do...

//Because, yeah, that makes perfect sense...
