A Letter From a Catholic

I recently received the following letter from a man who is upset over my website, specifically concerning my comments denouncing the Catholic church...
"I don't know where you got your information about Roman Catholicism, but it is absolutely false. Catholics do not worship statues."
Oh really? Then what do you call this photo below...
"Do you have any pictures of your wife/mother/children? When you look at those pictures do you worship the photo paper made to use them. Come on, have some common sense."
First, I don't have statues of my family surrounding me as the Catholics do of many of their saints. Furthermore, when I look at a photo of my family, I never bow to them or pray to them. Your reasoning is extremely flawed. It is obvious to anyone with even a low IQ that Pope John Paul II in the photo to the left is praying to Our Lady of Fatima (Mother Mary). Idolatry is a sin!
"Instead of attacking the Catholic Church which opposes many of the things mentioned on your site - homosexuality, abortion, etc, perhaps your energy would be better spent on the real issues."
Such as what? The Roman Catholic religion is leading a billion people into hell with them. The traditions of Roman Catholicism are NOT supported by the Word of God. Either the Bible is wrong, or the Vatican is wrong. I'll take my chances with the Word of God, the Bible. Besides, Catholic doctrine is confusing. They like to play word games and can't make up their minds.
"When a priest abuses young boys that is certainly an evil act, and should be taken extremely seriously. That is an evil in the Church, does it make the whole Catholic Church evil? No. Every church has had its scandals and pervert ministers, the Catholic Church gets the most media attention because she is the biggest and most illustrious Church in history. She is truly faithful and unwilling to break away like all the other churches that broke away to satisfy man's sinful desires. Many people leave the Church because of a certain priest or minister - the proper response is to never let a mere man come between you and Jesus.
The FACT is that the Vatican (Catholic church headquarters) cover-up up the sexual abuse for 40 years, they looked the other way, they condoned the pedophilia and did nothing to rectify the matter. The perverted criminal priests were NOT removed from their offices. Yes, every organization has it's problems, but don't you DARE defend the Catholic church by claiming that it's ok to cover-up sexually abusing little children and nuns. The Catholic church isn't like "every church"! 99% of churches would NOT tolerate the ongoing sexual abuse of children and teens for 40 years. The Catholic priesthood is a nest of homosexuals and pedophiles.
I find your page comparing Mary to Satan very offensive.
I don't have a problem with Mary, Jesus' mother. I have a problem with the "Blessed Virgin Mary" of Catholicism, the Great Whore, the Mother of Harlots, the Queen of Heaven. I have a problem with false religion. The Mary of Catholicism is NOT the Mary of God's Word. Jesus' mother would weep uncontrollably if she knew what the Catholic religion has done to her name (and I'm sure she does weep). Jesus mother was NOT a whore, but the "Mary" of Roman Catholicism is indeed the "Great Whore" of Revelation 19:2. Let's get your facts straight her pal. The "Mary" of Catholicism is Satanic to the core because she's no where found in the Bible. The bigger-than-life Mary of Roman Catholicism is a FALSE portrayal of the Biblical Mary (the Bible never portrays Mary as being anything more than a godly woman used by God).
Catholics do not worship Mary either. We honor the mother of Jesus.
You're misguided and blinded by Satan if you believe that Catholics don't worship Mary. Pope John Paul II worshipped Mary and prayed to her. The Pope does worship Mary! Catholics DO worship and pray to Mary. Catholics are known for venerating (worshipping) the dead. Catholics practice false worship.
You call Roman Catholicism a cult, but what you have developed here is a cult of paranoia veiled under the title of false Christianity.
"Cult of paranoia?" I challenge anyone to disprove anything on my website. I am simply sharing the truth with others. The Word of God is truth! If you don't believe that the Bible is God's Word, then you will NEVER understand my website because it is based upon the truth that the Bible is God's preserved, inspired, eternal, infallible, and inerrant Word. The "false Christianity" you speak of is none other than Roman Catholicism. The traditions of the Church of Rome are simply NOT found in the Word of God. The Roman Catholic church is a big hoax!
You are doing true harm to the Church and yourself.
I hope I am doing harm to the godless Catholic religion, I'd like to send it back to perdition where it came from. God hates lying and Catholicism is a bunch of lies! I am earning rewards in heaven by faithfully contending for the faith, I thank God for the opportunity to do what I am doing...helping other see the truth.
To quote a friend "The Catholic Church is an anvil that has withstood a thousand hammers". I am certain that your website is just another broken hammer."
Every Satanic doctrine from centuries past has survived until today, the Catholic church has achieved nothing. Just as Cain vainly tried to impress God with the works of his hands, so do Catholics try to impress God with their good works and ceremonialism. Catholicism is a damnable lie that has been in the world since Cain. On the contrary Ian, God will smash the Catholic Whore with His judgments...
"For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand." -Revelation 19:2
Don't be a fool Ian, only by doing the WILL OF GOD can anyone go to heaven...
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." -Matthew 7:21-23
Ye Must Be Born Again!
