Well that can explain it for Americans, but the Catholic church is often the target of a lot of anti-Christian sentiment as well, and Catholicism is far more prevelant in other countries than it is in the U.S. Everyone has their reasons, I guess.
I might be misinterpreting how you're presenting this, but are you suggesting that anti-Christian sentiment is more prevelant in the U.S. than elsewhere?
A great part of the anti-christian feeling is caused by the ridiculous attitudes to faith and relgion in America. The charismatic churchs, the materialism, the hypocrisy, the unsavoury connection with politics- all these things would probably make me an atheist if I live in the US. It saddens me to see so much resentment against a faith because message has been perverted in one corrupt system. It deeply concerns me that here in the UK evangelicals are gaining ground.
Well here one concerned agnostic living in the uk
the catholics through their dogmatic approach to contraception have killed thousands of african christians
as for their arrogant approach to sainthood and possession thats nothing less than medieval..
and how many more have been saved through abstinence?
You say that like its a bad thing.
With the attitude towards sex in africa for the last million years i think your claim is just a little itsy bitsy far fetched
Fire and brim stone has killed millions not just thousands and you have the audacity to defend their arrogance
exactly the motives and faith driven dogma that makes me scream with anger...so possessions are a fact are they???
and the twisting of facts to create a saint for propaganda purpose is not medieval???
So this is the real you..one that can claim that contraception is only a short term measure and unwanted children and early death from aids is of no consequence...how sick an attitude........as for whether you believe or not believe in the other weird happenings in the rc church?.... i can only guess your avoiding giving your opinion....................
Attempt to write logically please. I am making the point that in the long run contraception is innefective if combined with sexual promescuity. Additionally how can I be 'avoiding' giving my opinion on the 'wierd happenings in the rc' when you haven't even told me what you regard as 'weird happenings.' What you have said I have answered. If you feel my answer was insufficent then point out how and I will be delighted to rectify that. Otherwise you are just another fanatic who refuses to actually listen to what others tell them.
so you are against contraception? and you think the road to sainthood is faultless and honest? you also think we can be possessed by demons? that is my conclusion from your posts is that correct?
I am not against contraception neccersariy, but I think it isn't the solution to aids. I think that most saints were correctly beatified, however I am sure that there are a few among the thousands who were mistakenly chosen. I do indeed think that possession occurs very rarely, but that is merely my suspicion, I could be wrong on that point. Even if possesion is simply a mental disorder, exorcism has proved effective at treating it. So you are not particularily correct no.
