    Default Catholics

    I don't get them nor do I get the point of Catholicism. It makes no sense to me. If anyone here is catholic please explain to me what you are about.

    It's mostly because of the need to feel a part of something greater than ones self and the need for ritual. Catholicism is mostly ritual magic.

    The prayers, the beads, the incense, its all part of the need common people see to perform rituals. It comforting.

    "Confess, let me know your heart, let me know your sins, I can control you with them, and you will be forgiven. After you follow these simple steps, of course."

    They pay their dues, they are forgiven, and they are free to sin again.

    It's a lot more difficult to have no one to forgive you for your transgressions but yourself, and your peers. If you accept that there is no big father figure in the sky watching you and loving you, it can be a lot lonelier and darker especially if you have already lost your parents. It takes a lot more courage to face the world on your own, without the strength that prayer can lend, without the hope of a bright afterlife, with the full knowledge that this is it. There won't be eternity with your loved ones. This is all there is.

    keke, its called lack of personal spirituality. most catholics have their understanding of higher powers diluted by the beliefs of the pseudo-political powers above them.

    I wish I could cite this forum for my essays in Religion and Society.

    Go on Shadow, just say you wrote it yourself. It's called plagiarizing with a purpose. And since none of its copyright you won't get in trouble!

    Catholocism has a lot more ceremony to it than most Protestants. It's a fancier religion. Well it used too... One thing I can't stand abotu some practitioners of my religion is the recent trend in building MASSIVE, gaudy, hi tech churches... we're there to humble ourselves and worship our savior... it should be something more introspective... not Six Flags Over Jesus

    Christianity is the belief that Christ (Jesus) died in order to be a sacrifice to wash away the sins of humanity...

    Christianity is not about the boom boom boom and the crick caching... that's the Secular world. and GB, Secular is the proper term for nonreligious things... like holdin down a job, or talkin up the shorties.

    protestants don't give two shits about the pope and don't think of the virgin mary as highly as catholics

    i go to a catholic school. in theory it does absolutely nothing but in practice it sucks because they removed two music/art classes and made them religious shit instead
