quote:Do I have any first-hand knowledge of the Roman Catholic church? Well, I would say that twenty years in that church does give me a wee bit of first-hand knowledge.
No, not at all. First, you have stated you were not a Christian at the time. You never heard the Gospel at Mass, and you claim to be surrounded by people kissing statues.
So, no, Bill. You have no knowledge of the Catholic Church. You have a lot of misconceptions, and you were not open to receiving the Faith at the time. So, sorry, no cigar. If I were you, I don't know that I'd publicize how much time you spent in the Church. It kind of makes you look dumb to all of us who DO know what the Church is all about.
