You don't have to believe, Ding-a-ling.  As Catholics, we follow Christ, Ding-a-ling.  Our Catholic church traces back to the Resurrection and the first Pentecost.  Our Popes stretch back to St. Peter.  You may see Catholics as evil, Ding-a-ling but that is just your opinion.  We are Catholic Christians and many of us are proud of this and love Christ. 

Peace - Mareczku

Well, you are right there, Dingaling.

And while I'm at it, I've looked at all the evil we Americans have done to the Indians, and the slaves, and the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and I've decided I'm going to move to Iceland.  After all, I'm only an American because my Mom and Dad were.

Looking at American history we find that American christianity stole and murdered the American indians and took everything that thay had at gun point.

Every year we celebrate the evil of our parents by praising God and his Jewish kid Jesus.

(Lets hear it for religious evil.)

"Are catholicks for no better reason than that there mommy and daddy were catholick before them."  What grade are you in dingaling?  Actually my father was a convert to the Catholic Church.  His father was raised Baptist and his mother was raised Presbyterian.

Nah, I disagree.  I believe that in history, people of all nations overall tended to be very violent.  I think the era and culture we live in the US is very unique and we often question how could people live different than us?  In all honesty, I sometimes wonder how long we'll be able to maintain the peace, but that scares me so I'd rather not think about it.  Besides worrying about it does no good.
