The sad part is a few people attack me and my religion, and say they only follow what is written in the Bible. I gave biblical references and the Catholic interpretation, and my points are discounted with "waiving incense and holy water". There is no research, no willingness to learn, no willingness to take a deeper look. I am not trying to convert, I am trying to educate. I want people to know the how, what, and why of the Catholic Church.

Catholicism is the last socially acceptable prejudice in America. There are so many misconceptions, and many non-Catholics believe that if one Catholic scorns them, the whole Catholic Church must be bad. The fact is, people of every race, color, religion, ethnicity have the ability to scorn you.
If you think Catholism gets the heat, try being a Pagan in the Bible Belt. Everyone thinks we're devil worshippers and refuse to admit otherwise. There are a lot of hate mongers out there.

Anywho, I'm sure no one is trying to attack your religion, Matty. No one has ever tried to attack my religion (except for BSr). I tend to discuss my religion only with those who legitimately and respectfully prompt me for it. Those who come at me with an attitude or insults will either get ignored or get my own attitude in return. I don't play others' games when discussing religion. I keep an open mind so that I can give others their fair share of space and I expect the same treatment in return.
