The Catholics will not go to Hell for believing in demon statues, as Hell does not really exist.

<>

The Bible is just a book made up by a bunch of different guys and not truly the words of a god.

<>

So it's their time to waste. Let them. If you want to win this debate, you'll have to get this atheist to believe that your Bible's "Hell" exists.

I don't agree.

Be cool. Stay in school. You need it, as your education is seriously lacking.

We're not here to debate whether I will go to hell or not. We're here to discuss the Catholics going to Hell for believing in demon statues, which is a lie. Catholics believe in their god and place no other above that belief -- a belief that does not exist.

(Also, that text-typing is okay for your cellphone when you're chatting with your friends, but not so great for here. You dig, homeboy?)

You've still failed to argue WHY Catholics will go to Hell. There no proof that they believe in demon statues and if you ask any given Catholic, I'm sure they would deny your claim.

Then you forfeit the debate. I don't know why you posted it if you weren't serious about your claim. All you've done is waste your time, my time and the time of anyone who reads this debate.

HA! So your tactic is to insult me then show me the path of the righteous? Hysterically funny. Thanks for nothing.

there is nothing wrong with having religious statues or icons...the bible actually encourages it....Catholic or orthodox christians do not pray to or worship these images, this is a ignorant misunderstanding of the catholic/orthodox faith. get your facts straight rockstarman11! Jesus was very specific about how he wanted the ark of the covenant built. He said to decorate it with cheribums (angels) is this not the same as statues and icons? Did god support graven images? think about that....Also God used a statue of a snake to heal isrealites when they were biten by snakes...Did God sin? think about that also

Regardless of whether God really exists and all that, this argument is still ridiculous. I'm Jewish, and I can tell you that Catholics don't worship "demon idols". (I've never even heard of statues like that). I think that Catholics have gotten following the Bible down pretty well by now, seeming as it's been, what? 2000 years by now?

And you should be nicer to atheists.

you have got to be kidding me! This whole topic is completely flawed and uniformed. I not only find this offensive but a lie. Catholics do not and have never worshiped or condoned any such worship of statues and demons!!! This is the most ludacris and insusting thing I have seen posted. Catholics give reverance to Saints, Popes, The Virgin Mary and the Lord God by making statues and images (to the great benefit of western art). TO say this is idolotry is simply an ignorant notion. Catholics are assured of Heaven even more than there Protestant brothers and sisters.
