This is seasonal witchcraft. Fishy ‚Äúsightings‚ÄĚ story. Rotten eggs. Bunny trails. We should have nun of this! Silly people laden with deceit. We can only tell them. For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain unto the craftsmen;Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have our wealth. Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands: So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth. And when they heard these sayings, they were full of wrath, and cried out, saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians (Acts 19:24-28). Remember RCCs violent acts and threats of ex communication are still showing the effects. It is likened to intimidating Islamist. Think our way or perish. Cults always use threats and changes one's behavior. Believe it long enough and it becomes your truth.

I only stepped in during the papal transition because I couldnt distinguish this site from the most vile atheist sites by the posts. Being antiCatholic & understanding a Reformed catechism doesnt make you a Christian.
There is nothing on this site as vile as your endorsement of Rome's anathemas of all true believers. Who does Rome anathematize?

Your inconsistency is your responsibility not mine. There comes a point where gross inconsistency from an educated and articulate man reveals him to be a liar. Lies - you say?
You have stated on these forums that Rome anathematizes "Only false believers, those that are liars."
Yet Rome anathematizes all those who hold to imputed righteousness and justification by faith.
Therefore, if you are consistent, you MUST believe that the doctrine of imputed righteousness and justification by faith is a lie in order for their anathematised adherents to be what you have stated to be only false believers and liars.
The two choices on the issue are: 1. the doctrines of imputed righteousness which you have clearly identified as a lie and as something held to by false believers and liars. 2. Rome's doctrine of infused righteousness.
In the absence of either 1. a third option 2. any retraction by you of your endorsement of Rome's anathemas I repeat to you SteveR:
