    Because a priest has to be available to support and help anyone (no matter who they are). A family is considered as a priority for a man, wich uses up time and one will automaticly love his family more than his communion (wich isn't what a priest's supposed to do).
    Fasting is a way to show respect for those who had suffered for their faith. (Mozes during his trip through the desert for example) And offcourse discipline.

    This is a funny thing to read from a member of a christian aspect that supports televangelists^^

    Fasting can also make you mentally sharper for a while, and cause your body to kick out toxins (People stink more when they fast).

    When did I say I supported televangelists? You are assuming incorrectly.

    I didn't say you did (I used 'aspect' or was just pointing to "protestant"), and you're most likely protestant (or baptist, reformed or however they call protestants in the US): wich is the source of things like televangelists and the paying for church.
    I'm not religious, but I try and show respect towards religion. But those that allow their religion being turned into some kind of circus makes me wonder if they even respect their own religion. (Again, I'm not adressing you. I used the example to point out that the catholic church isn't the only one skillfull in emptying the pockets of their community.)

    I'd have to agree with you there. They also break the commandment about not worshipping idols made by mans hands.

    Hehehe, that made me chuckle.

    Nobody sells hypocracy quite like the christians. Each of the sects may be a bit different, but really...they are all the same.


    So hmmm, any more thoughts on that big fish?

    I don't, but there is a difference between a crucifix and a cross and there's a difference between worshipping said items and simply having them as a reminder of Christ's sacrifice.

    You can't hate a playa for trying ;)

    But my jest was merely pointing out that while Christian groups tend to find faults with each other, a lot of the time it's things they do themselves, just differently. Take for example Catholics, my upbringing taught me that people like you weren't as christian because you don't ollow the bible the same way or pray to the Saints...whatever it was. Yet, in the reverse side, Catholics tend to ignore or override certain things too. It's little things, and you all do it to each other but in the larger scheme of things, you're all really different editions of the same book.

    And the Catholics I know who pray while holding a crucifix aren't praying to the thing, they are holding it while praying to God. They just hold it as you would hold a fellow christian's hand during a prayer service. Strength in companionship, to them it makes them feel like they are reaching out to Jesus when they pray. In essence, it's a way to channel their prayers more directly.

    As for Crosses and Crucifix being different things, blah. They are as different from each other as you are from a Catholic, not much.

    And now I completely devoted myself to hijacking my own thread.

    A cross is not an "idol" nor an "image" of another God.

    But the thing that strikes me in this day in age are all the robes and hat thingys still midevil times for them.

    Catholics don't worship crucifixes, they worship biscuits. Everyone knows that. Or at least everyone who's read Jack Chick's "The Death Cookie"...

    I'm not sure if your being goofy or not, but that's really what I was referring to. Catholics believe that the bread and wine actually become the body and blood of Christ. Those that study their Bible can recognize this as a form of idol worship since these things were made by human hands and are then revered and worshiped as deity. Also, the tizzy surrounding the "images of the Virgin Mary" that pop up on road signs and oil spills are mostly Catholic driven. Then there are all the statues they love so much. If you came to my church, you wouldn't find a crucifix (that is, a cross with Jesus on it) you also will not find any permanent images of Jesus or Mary or any other Biblical figure. I think there is one cross in the entire building and one on top.

    I really don't understand the praying to saints thing. I havn't found anything in the Bible that talks about praying to saints. I know they think it has something to do with their belief thats saints can be intercessors on your behalf to God but the Bible teaches ME that there is only one intercessor, Jesus. I also have learned that ALL who believe in Jesus are saints in God's eyes and this business to "sainting" people as if they are somehow better than the rest of us is just a bunch of bunk. Then there's the whole concept of purgatory that was quite clearly made-up in the 12th century or so. There is no mention or hint of a place called purgatory in the Bible.

    So, I guess if "following the Bible" means making up stuff, they are following the Bible pretty well.

    When I was a kid, no really, this ain’t no BS tale. We moved to a small town that had one church. I think it was a Methodist church. I remember eating crackers and drinking grape juice from a shot glass in church. Is this some morphing of some other religions, or are Methodists some form of Catholics, or what?
