This thread is entitled CATHOLICISM...hello? HELLO?

The Roman Catholic Church approves of evolution. So stop the YEC/OEC BS! Hello? Is anybody home?

Good point! I know they approve of evolution but also disregard the shroud,well the Pope does maybe not all Catholics.

That's it then. I can't be a Catholic because I certainly don't disregard the shroud.

Then I suggest you read Bippy's thread on the Shroud from the beginning. I thought the Shroud was bunk but when I considered the evidence apart from my pre-conceived ideas, I had to recant my position.

Go ahead...I dare you!

If they had a social gospel in the days of the prodigal son, somebody would have given him a bed and a sandwich and he never would have gone home.

I don't think the Catholic Church has an official stance on the authenticity of the shroud. But I could be wrong.

English and French are supposed to be mortal enemies. Like Jews and Muslims. Or catholics and protestants. Or Hatfields and mccoys. Or dogs and mailmen.

Thought I would delete this post. Do we no longer have the option?
Perhaps too much honesty is not always the best policy. Maybe it is, meh y:-?

It seems to me that Orthodox Christianity always gets the raw end of the stick.
They're meant to be the second largest, and I've never seen anyone promoting them.

So perhaps you should consider them too.
With apostolic succession, beautiful religious practices if you're into that.
And in my opinion, while Mary is very much esteemed, their beliefs re: her seem much more acceptable.

Actually, get a copy of The Early Church by Henry Chadwick.
I'm sure you'll find it interesting. Quite a good read if you want some history.
Neutral even. Seriously, quite a good introductory book.
