Yes that's the reaction I would think any normal person would have, but at EvC I'm so used to everybody objecting to everything I say I'm astonished anyone sees any of it as I do. Of course as a Protestant I'm suspected of nothing more than an emotional sort of anti-Catholicism, for which any information I muster is nothing more than an empty attempt to justify myself. Never occurs to anybody it's the information that turned me against the Pope in the first place.
Anyway I'm surprised that anyone at all would get the point of anything I say. I don't want to say thanks, I just want to express amazement. You are just as odious to me as everybody else, but at least on this one subject I'm getting a bit of a reprieve. Not thanks, but maybe congratulations for being sane.
Righto. Of course I should have known. It doesn't matter that the papal system commits egregious crimes of all sorts, from covering up the sexual crimes committed by their priests because of the unbiblical rule of celibacy, committed murders down the centuries to gain or hold onto political power, murdered tens of millions of Jews, Muslims and true Christians in the name of their phony religion, to protecting the Nazi murderers from prosecution, while Protestantism as an ideology doesn't do anything of the sort, to you it's all the same. Remind me to ignore all seeming agreements from now on.
... while Protestantism as an ideology doesn't do anything of the sort....
Only "as an ideology", eh? Looks like a drifting goalpost to me. Because we know that individual Protestants like Jim Bakker, Rex Humbard, Jimmy Swaggart, etc. have done their share of crossing the line.
