The Catholic church should stay out of politics. Its is more of a political force than religious faith. Mary was Jewish, not catholic. Peter was a sinner and Jesus said "get behind me satan" to him. Priests are sinners and they have no power to forgive sins. Statues and paintings of saints is idolatry, and its punishable by going to hell. The Pope is not God's chosen leader, he has no right to wear a crown.

The Catholic faith is the fastest route to hell. Read your bible. None of its doctrines are in the bible, they are made up!

There is a hell. Sin will be punished. In hell you may well hang on a cross just like Jesus did....forever. Cause either YOU pay for your sins, or Jesus pays. So you chose to pay for them.

Hell has no lock on the door - people freely enter! But can never leave!

No parties in hell, no cigs, no booze, no sex, no music, no friends, no food, no light, no drugs, no internet, no TV, no boats, no cars, no homes, no money, as hell is the severe punishment for Satan and you get to tag along! Envision being suspended in the air, in pitch dark forever, oh and your nailed to a cross "paying for your own sins".

My sins are forgiven and I will be in heaven enjoying all the inventions God quietly placed into men's classis cars, music, food, homes, boats, planes super computers, etc...stuff people wrongly thought "they designed" out of thin air. Heaven won't have harps and clouds - thats Satan's lie to turn people off. Nothing more obnoxious then a damn harp!

Yeah, thats a eye opening idea of hell. You hang on a cross yourself, forever in darkness, to pay for your own sins. Why forever? Cause you still have evil thoughts and each one sets you back another couple years.....

I heard once that God is so holy and perfect that just hating someone is the same as committing murder.

Wonder what child rape by a priest will bring?
