"You can't be Catholic and vote Democrat."

We take a quick pause to share further examination of controversial statements from the Kansas City bishop that angered progressives as they suspect American Catholics might vote for Trump . . . It's possible but only about as much as Catholics reader their bible.

Catholics are going to hell. Why might you ask? Cause they call JESUS A FAILURE. Yes, they claim Jesus can't give salvation for sins. YOU HAVE TO WORK YOUR OWN WAY TO HEAVEN YOURSELF. YOU DO WHAT JESUS CAN'T! Thats the definition of the hell bound!

You should not judge other people @4:59.

Hopefully the Pope will reassign Johnston to a parish in Savissivik, Greenland for the rest of his career, I've heard that there are four or five Catholics living there, and right now they only have a traveling Priest to minister to them.

Render unto Caesar, Jimmie Boy, render unto Caesar.

I am not judging. I am comparing Catholic beliefs and traditions to what Jesus proclaimed as truth. Jesus judges them!

If you see something thats green and something thats silver, is it judging to tell people that green is NOT silver (as they believe)?? No, its pointing out the truth.

You may feel free to point out the truth to me. its not judging, its informing someone of the facts. Is it loving to never tell Catholics the truth, and let them walk straight into hell? is that caring?

Jesus has the Truth. Not you.

Catholics believe in Jesus. Your condemnation will not bring anyone closer to God. Isn't that the point?

Catholics do not believe in Jesus 100%. Only 5%. Thats a failing grade! They believe more in praying to 1. Mary, 2. The Saints, 3. Joseph, and maybe as a last thought......Jesus. Mary is a dead Jewish women, the Catholic church wasnt started until 550 years after she died and was given a Jewish burial. She never even heard the word "Catholic" in her whole life.

Catholics don't accept Jesus as the only way to salvation/heaven. They believe and trust in 1. good works, 2. reciting the Rosary, 3. masses to get people outta purgatory, 4. Priests (yes the rapists) forgiving your sins in a confession booth. 5. lighting candles for the dead. 6 Praying before idols of Mary. 7. Worship of relics (old rotted body parts of Priests). 8. The Pope as God's appointed leader (what B.S.). The Catholic church is like a nice glass of 99% cold water and 1% cyanide. The 1% is enough to ruin you forever. If your a Catholic do you check your mind in at the door? Why are old body parts worshipped and buried under each Catholic altar? Why did the Pope recently announce Limbo doesnt exist? So where did the babies go? You dont care cause your lazy and dont want to work to find out the real truth. But you alone are responsible and will be tested on your knowledge of the truth on judgement day! No Pope or Priest will stand with you -they will already be in hell!

But if you vote Republican you're supporting capital punishment. Does His Holiness think that The Church should pay taxes? Either pay taxes, or STFU!

Catholics believe in Jesus? Really? Did you know that the Satan and his fallen angels believe in Jesus even more than the Pope? They used to live with Jesus in heaven before being evicted for "treason". They saw him. Fought him.

Believing in Jesus means nothing! You can believe in laws, courts, and then disregard them and break the laws. Catholics praying to Mary are committing idolatry - "making their own God". Praying to a human? Really? Praying to humans that are saints? Really? Putting saints in a role of being able to do the same thing God can do? Mary will hear your prayer and then go tell Jesus your request, who cannot turn her down when she asks for something. Really? Staying in purgatory till you get the earned credits to leave for heaven some day? Really? Are you people unable to read the Bible? There is just heaven and hell waiting for you. Worship anything but God and your NOT going to heaven. Catholics are so misguided. Mary, a dead Jewish woman cannot hear your prayers - she is in a grave, awaiting the reserection - or do you not believe in that either? Really?

Am I right to assume all the anti-Catholic posters here will be calling their senators tomorrow to demand Amy Coney Barrett be denied a seat on the court?

If confirmed, 6 of the 9 justices would be Catholic. Seems more than a bit lopsided.

Catholicism and Christianity are 2 completely different religions. Let me give you an example of how different they are. Picture this hypothetical situation:

example 1 - Adolf Hitler is getting ready to die at war's end. He suddenly realizes how wrong he has been, that people's lives have value, and that he is a horrible sinner. He calls out to Jesus "please forgive me, I am sinner, I repent of all my sins, tiny and big"! He is then shot dead. Jesus is willing, happy and able to immediately forgive all Hitler's sins and he goes to heaven right away when he dies! This is Christianity - per Jesus Christ.

example 2 - A ordinary middle class Catholic tries to live a "pretty good life", believes Jesus existed, he asks priests (not Jesus) to forgive his sins each week at confession, prays to Mary and the saints, firmly believes in Purgatory and that good works will prevent you from going there for too long. He firmly believes you can't go to heaven directly based on what Christ did, only good his own works, prayers from others, masses held after you die get you outta purgatory to heaven. He does good works, starts a charitable organization to help the poor, raises a nice family, never swears - but "TRUSTS IN HIS GOOD WORKS AND Priests, and MOTHER MARY TO GET HIM TO HEAVEN". He is dying and clutches rosary beads, has priest give him last rites as if the priest can do miracles. He dies and goes to hell. He TRUSTED IN WORKS OF MAN AND MARY - that won't get you to heaven. He DIDNT trust in Jesus's ability to forgive alone, he believed in GOOD WORKS, earning credits, basically buying your way in, as THE way to get out of purgatory and into heaven! It fails, he goes to hell and Hitler goes to heaven. God can forgive anyone's sin, but only if they ask and trust in him alone - not on their works or another human like Mary and Priests. Hitler gets heaven, Joe Catholic gets hell. Its all clearly spelled out in the Bible. Ignorance is NO excuse.
