Be Careful

Not being of the Catholic persuasion, I find it funny that the denomination that Protestant denominations love to hate is bad mouthing the LDS church. I remember growing up and going to numerous Christian churches who told me the Catholics where going to hell because they worshiped false idols. They even have extra books in the bible that other Christians do not use. Praying to the Virgin Mary seems odd for numerous Christian religions. Making people Saints which does not seem to follow other Christian Dominations is another issue of debate. The Pope speaking for God while on the Papal thrown seems odd; almost like the Pope is a God. We canít forget the history of the Catholic Church where you could buy your way to heaven (some say that is still true) and the Crusades. Why Catholics do pray for dead people, isnít there fate already determined? If not, doesnít that sound crazy? How did the Catholic Church and Pope treat the Jews during WWII?

For me, John 3:16 Ė For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Alvin is looking through his glass prism and fails to realize his Catholicism is not the only view of Christianity. In fact, his blind bigotry continues to surf in his comments. I have studied and been in many Churches. I personally donít care what denomination at President in as long as they believe in a higher deity. Further, I am not sure why religious beliefs are a deciding factor for President. John Kerry was Catholic but believed in abortion. So, what parts of the Catholic religion is OK with Alvin? Good thing the American population didnít buy this when John F. Kennedy was running. If you will recall, the fear was the Protestants would not vote for a Catholic.

In the case President Obama, his egotistical nature and actions would alone lead me not to vote for him. His attendance at a church with a racist and bigoted Pastor would be the second reason if I was only concerned with religion. We have religious freedom due to the strength of the US in the world. If we elect someone like Obama again, we will lose our strength and our religious freedom. Just like Protestants voted for Catholics; I think it is reasonable for Catholics to vote for a LDS protestant.
