101. Hi, Maraya1969 - actually, Catholics aren't Protestants...
Edited on Sat Jun-11-05 07:58 AM by I Have A Dream
However, both Protestants and Catholics fall under the Christian religion.

I work with a lot of Catholic people, and those with whom I work are strongly behind the Bush administration. Additionally, these people really do listen to the Pope in reference to gay marriage, abortion and birth control. However, they don't listen to him on the morality of the war in Iraq, for some reason. If the fundamentalists are "wing nuts", these people (the ones with whom I work) are just as much so.

It's my experience that Catholics don't try to convert people but rather they want to change society to follow many of the things that Catholicism holds as true. To me, that's just as bad for our society because it still takes away my freedoms.

(I'm NOT talking about ALL Catholics -- I'm just speaking about my experiences with the people with whom I work.)
