durbnpoisn: Satanic_Hamster: Catholics don't count as Christians to creationists, subby.

This.

I'm not a Catholic.  But my understanding is that they are among the few that are no so "fundemental" in their belief in the Bible.  They knowingly accept that it is a collection of stories, lessons, and parables.  Not to be taken so literally.
So I'm not surprised by this.


Yes and no. The Old Testament is taught as a mixture of legend and history that mostly serves as an appendix to the New Testament. The New Testament is taught as the factual history of Jesus' life and works, as filtered through four assholes.

Marine1: Catholics believe in evolution as the method through which God created the Universe. The difference is they believe there was a prime mover.

Magorn: Flat earthers are also Biblical literalists by the way, saying the Earth MUST be flat because the bible talks about the "Four Corners" of the earth, and a sphere has no corners so obviously...


This guy disagrees.

cgraves67: Zasteva: Just this morning I was seeing something about another attack by the Catholic Church on gay rights... and thinking fark those guys...

Now they have to go and do something like this?!?

Cut it out Catholic Church -- you are supposed to be either all good or all evil. This good sometimes bad others thing is just not working for me.

You can always try a different hokey religion's doctrine: "Only the Sith deal in absolutes"


Isn't that an absolute?
