God fine tuned the solar system and made it great. The sun is far from the earth, And yet the earth is much closer to the sun than many of the other planets. Consider Pluto, A tiny frozen world at the outer edge of the planets of the solar system. Pluto (on average) is about 40 times farther away from the sun than the earth is. Traveling at 65 miles per hour, It would take about 6, 500 years to reach Pluto. This is comparable to the age of the universe. The solar system is truly vast; if it had been the only thing God had made, We should certainly be impressed. Yet, God has created on even larger scales. Consider the distances between the stars. TRY AND GRASP GOD'S GLORY
The Catholic Church is the true Church founded by Jesus Christ (Matthew 16:18), The Son of God. As the teachings of the Church are true and good, The conversion of society is beneficial for everyone. However, I do not believe in theocracy or proclaiming a state religion. I would prefer a middle ground as opposed to secularism and theocracy, And for the majority of the population to be Catholic.
According to the old testament, Mankind had two common ancestors (Adam and Eve) and one common family origin (Noah after the flood). Clearly the scriptures where handed down in great detail by the three main faiths (Jewish, Muslim, And Christian) so we should have examples of those stories in every ancient culture around the world. Problem is, That is not the case. Judeo-Christian beliefs didn't exist outside the region but many far different beliefs did. If this belief is part of your ancient ancestry, Why should it be new to you and the rest of the world outside the Arab area? Sure, It's possible that some people may forgotten parts or even all of it but when there is absolutely no knowledge in any other part of the ancient world it shows that it's not true. If it was true then all countries should have already been Judeo-Christian.
I mean that is kind of self-explanatory ha ha hah hah ah ha hah ahhahah ha hah ah ah ha hah ah h haha hah ha ha hah ha hah ahhahah ahha ha ha h ha ha ha ha hah hahh ha ah ah h ahha hahahah h ha ha
The Catholics are the most barbaric people of all. They forced the natives to convert and tried to kill protestant kings and destroy protestant nations. Hitler was blessed by the pope to go to war. They have destroyed and altered history and they are trying to subvert Protestantism, Or rather they already have toppled Lutheranism and other denominations.
You pretend to be pious but you wish to rule with an iron hand like you have in the past. You are also in denial of the bible and refuse to believe Rome is the harlot of the apocalypses
The statement "all countries should be Catholic" is obnoxious. Why so? Simply, BECAUSE IT BREAKS OUR HUMAN RIGHTS! Article 18 of the Civil and Political Covenant reads: "1. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, Conscience and religion. This right shall include freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice, And freedom, Either individually or in community with others and in public or private, To manifest his religion or belief in worship, Observance, Practice and teaching. 2. No one shall be subject to coercion which would impair his freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice. 3. Freedom to manifest one’s religion or beliefs may be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary to protect public safety, Order, Health, Or morals or the fundamental rights and freedoms of others. 4. He States Parties to the present Covenant undertake to have respect for the liberty of parents and, When applicable, Legal guardians to ensure the religious and moral education of their children in conformity with their own convictions. "
Thus, Every person must choose their own religion, Not have it chosen by someone other than him/her. I rest my case.
It is VERY important that each person can choose their own path with religion and spirituality. I can honestly 100% say, I would rather die than let anybody tell me what to believe.
So say you are Catholic, Yes? What if somebody told you that from now on, You MUST be Buddhist? Or how about Jewish? Pagan? How would you feel? Now apply that feeling to every person in the world who disagrees with this idea but somebody forces them to anyway. Doesn't that just feel icky? Would you really be ok with that? It is scary to think that 50% of the people here, ARE ok with that.
I'm Wiccan and proud. I follow the Rede of *and it harm none, Do what you will. * Oppressing people IS harming them. Just remember that.
Nobody should force their religious views and mythology on others that do not share their beliefs. The well being of society and the reality of real life consequences should always take precedence over belief. Reality is the only thing we know for sure is real, And so if belief comes into conflict with reality, Reality must always take the lead.
If you want to live in a theocracy, Go move to Haiti.
