Um, please no...we don't need another branch of Protestantism.

maybe the 'second one' can just convince the catholics that the Vatican is just playing them along and turn it into a more forward thinking organisation.

We haven't seen a good excommunication in a while...

The Catholic church could certainly use a miracle right about now I would think.

Umm, I don´t really see what good M. Luther did for the Catholic church ... and I´m quite shure the Pope shares that view
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 4/2/04 - 6:34:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
exactly. what they need to do is update thier old brain-washing techniques

What the Catholic church really needs is a kick in the butt!
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 4/2/04 - 8:35:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
no, we don't need troublemakers like him
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 4/2/04 - 2:42:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
No thanks, we're getting along quite fine without another Luther.

What we DO need is for the media (news/movies/etc) to stop portraying us negatively and only focusing on certain isolated incidents that are in fact going against the Church.

If people could just take a second and think about what they're saying, it would make a world of difference.

No Islam is in dire need of one though.

I am a Catholic, and from the little I know about Luther, I'd say he did have some very valid points, some of which have already been implemented by the Catholic church. The Vatican II council did a lot to modernize the church. I'd say the Catholic church is pretty modern already. What else do you want?

Thank you for saying something unpopular but true.

Besides, as the split with the Roman Catholic Church has already occured, it really has no need to happen again. People have scads of ways to be christians: episcepalions, Anglicans, Lutherans, the everpolular Cult of Mary, and, my favorite, Unitarians.
Heck, if you want one of the major tenants of your religion to be that everyone is going to hell you could always become a Baptist.

Heck, now we even have made up religions, such as Scientology, Wiccans, and, officially in England, Jedi Knight.

Who needs Luther? We have a veritable buffet of religion right now.

I beleive the Catholic chuurch needs moderizing.letting priest marry for example,among other things.married priest would at least deter child molesters from becoming priests.I do believe that its molesters that become priests not priest that become molesters.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 4/4/04 - 7:06:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think that the Church needs ANTI-modernizing!
It's not supposed to listen to what the people WANT their religions to be like. I wish that Martin Luther had never split the Church at all, but now I think that a new church reformer in general would be a good thing.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 4/4/04 - 8:18:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think another Martin Luther would ultimately be a good thing for the catholics. I think every religion needs a swift kick in the crotch once and awhile.

Actually what?, a higher percentage of married men (as compared to priests) are child molesters--how would allowing priests to be married discourage child molesters?

You mean another heretic? No, there are plenty of heretics on the streets right now. They're called Protestants.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 9/23/04 - 12:40:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
no I do not think so
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 10/4/04 - 11:29:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
no they are ok
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 12/2/04 - 4:42:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
The Catholic church may require organisational reform as well as reform of its conventions. But Luther attacked the articles of faith of the Church which do not need changing.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 10:20:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
The Catholic church needs to get w the times and the pope needs to retire, but to bring another Luther into the church would change it too much and it doesn't need that much change.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 1/29/05 - 1:53:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think the Catholic Church is doing any worse than any other religious system.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 3/1/05 - 8:54:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
They dont think theres anything wrong with catholics. And they already had someone break away, so if people dont like the catholic church, become protestant.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 3/1/05 - 9:02:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
This is a very funny thread.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 3/4/05 - 5:00:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
oh god no! we don't need one of HIM again. that's just asking for more problems.
