Dear epostle,

I just have to say that you should ask Blade to explain more fully what he was saying.
I know exactly what he is saying. A meaningless flaming zinger based on blind prejudice. 
Quote
I do have a problem with the Pope worshiping Jesus' mother and other 'saints.' 
Of course you do. Anti-Catholic myths has been part of your training. It's so automatic you don't realize you are doing it. You will have to show me in any official Catholic document in a 2000 year period that instructs Catholics to worship Mary or other saints. It's a stupid canard.
Quote
Jesus did not tell us to worship His mother.
Please stop saying Catholics worship Mary. It's insulting. The honor we give to Mary is the same kind of honor that you give to Paul. Human to human. Only more of it. Paul didn't give birth to the Messiah. We think that makes Mary special. Don't you? The anti-Mary animus in Protestantism is not biblical. Are we not to imitate Christ? Did Jesus honor His mother? Oh sure, imitate Christ, but not that!?!

We honor saints because of their exemplary life in Christ. We marvel at their holiness centuries later, and even recent ones.
Quote
  He said to worship GOD.
Catholics worship only God and God alone. But don't take my word for it; attend a Mass and see for yourself.
Quote
The same thing goes with the various saints that they put on a pedestal.
  I'm sure you have met holy Christians in your life, who bear abundant fruit. Do you put them on a pedestal? Of course not.
Quote
There is no Mother Nature either. It is simply the Lord who causes all of the weather, etc.  Hey, I've always felt this way.
Agreed.  It's a common euphemism that doesn't necessarily mean creation worship. It's used in every day language.
Quote
  But, I do love the Catholic people and the fact that they accept Jesus as God's Son, and their own Savior.  That tells me a lot and I feel they are Christians, too.
Thank you.

I'm not a moderator, but thought I should share these things. It is not right for them to play bingo at the church either, for that is gambling and it is a house of worship.  Something is just not right.
People go to bingos for fellowship and to raise money for charity. They are strictly regulated by various government entities. Every penny is accounted for according to the laws of the land. They were never held in a church, but in a hall. Now, various charities take turns running them in public places. I haven't seen a church bingo in 40 years.  Equating church bingos with casinos is nit picking phariseeism.
