Lol...I'm not a "normal" evangelical Protestant type...I'm a Christian who reads Gods Word and then endeavors by His grace to obey it. Btw...mentally deranged and psychotic seems to describe roman catholicism to a tee.

Yea don't forget the popish festivals..Xmas..Istar...Lent...good Friday .and on and on

While Im not crazy about crosses even just on stain glass or Bibles of conservative churches, I merely admonish them. However, if someone here is falsely accusing you and their church displays crosses, woe is them for their hypocritical wickedness
As a former RC the Lord convicted our family years ago concerning anything that smacks of idolatry. Including popish festivals , Xmas, Easter, etc. where we worship has nothing but the Bible. So take your anathemas and pronounce elsewhere....like against the great mother of harlots and her daughters
Just to be clear....I could care less if John Y attends RC , says "mass" or is an altar boy..I told him not to peddle RC tripe here. We do not need to hear about " their doctrine" as it is not a Christian denomination, if some of you want to close your eyes and pretend otherwise....knock yourselves out!!
"What is Easter? One of Rome's most valuable pagan observances, in pretense of remembering Christ's resurrection, yet in reality a festival of a Chaldean goddess. This mustard seed of Romish planting has verily filled the whole earth with its branches". R.F. Becker
