Do you think the Catholic religion will still be around in 100 years?

Yes, I do. Christianity has been around for 2000 years, I doubt it will ever completely go away...

There will still be Christians but a few million probably.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/22/08 - 11:38:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I don't think it would ever end. They encourage procreation right.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/22/08 - 12:52:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think that as long as there are humans, there will be Catholics.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/22/08 - 1:10:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hope not but the odds in favor of reason are against me.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/22/08 - 1:47:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
if the religion lasted like 2000 years, it can probly last another 2000.... or more
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/22/08 - 3:26:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure. There will always be followers and there will always be Italians.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/22/08 - 5:43:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure as hell hope not, but there's a chance that it will.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/22/08 - 10:15:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Knowing that it has been around for 2000 years, I think it will still exist 100 years from now.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/22/08 - 11:39:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, but it will barely be Christian anymore. They'll call Jesus's resurrection a symbol instead of a reality and basically be Jews.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 12:39:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
Oh yes, there will always be followers to religions and that makes it. Especially the Catholic religion considering how much of an impact it has on some of the world now.

Anyone who is Catholic shouldn't procreate unfortunately because of the catholics grotesque ban on birth control this will not be possible. Stupid Catholics!

Excuse me? I won't get into an argument about birth control with you, because honestly I don't care enough. But the first part of that "Catholics shouldn't procreate" is absurd, ridiculous, inflammatory, and bigoted. I don't even see your logic. Why shouldn't Catholics have kids? If a Catholic wants kids, have kids. Same with Protestants, Jews, Muslims, Atheists, Pagans, anybody.

Seriously, this is one of the most inane statements I ever read.

But yes, I think it will still be around. I think some things might change but the core structure and ideals will remain the same. I think that a lot of young people leave religion but return when they marry and have kids.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 2:05:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
Obviously you are a moron!

Catholics shouldn't be allowed to procreate because they should not be permitted to pass on their "inane" beliefs on to others.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 2:11:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yep. Obviously, I am a moron. I really appreciate your profound revelation.

I'm gonna pop out my 12 kids, more if I have multiple births. Because I'm Catholic and also too dumb to use a calendar. Otherwise, why would I be Catholic?

Seriously, is it just Catholics or should other religions be banned from having kids? I mean, you seem so tolerant of others and accepting of people's beliefs that I am just enthralled by your genius. Tell me more.

Oh and Happy Easter.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 2:14:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
I prefer to celebrate Good Friday, thank you very much.

While all religious people should seriously not be allowed to procreate for the betterment of the human race. However, Catholics are much more insane and dogmatic than many of the other religions. This explains my stance on their procreation. This holds to the Mormons, doubly.

Besides the calendar method has been proven ineffective. As has premature ejaculation.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 2:24:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
But why do you care what they believe? No one is forcing you to believe anything.

In my experience Catholics are not big on the whole converting people thing. They certainly don't go door to door or anything. So doesn't that make them less insane? I think crazy Christians, I think Fred Phelps who is Baptist. However, because I am not a judgmental narrow-minded little twit, I do not think all Baptists or even many Baptists are like Phelps. I've known a few and they are far from it.

I don't believe what Muslims believe but that hardly means that I don't think that they should have kids. Nor do I believe that preventing such would lead to "betterment of the human race."

I'm not claiming that it's perfect but natural family planning does lower pregnancy rates. My views on birth control are more liberal than the official Catholic stance anyways.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 2:30:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
I care because the people that have such strong beliefs are harming the the Earth and the inhabitants therein.

They aren't Baptists. You are, however, a narrow-minded little twit, obviously. Non-religious people are so for a reason. A few that are far from it? Where does that lave the majority?

A lowering of pregnancy rates doesn't really solve the problem. And it does better the human race because these people usually pass on their beliefs to their little children which perpetuates a terrifying cycle which is problematic.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 2:36:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
But why are beliefs a bad thing? So what, if I'm wrong and there is nothing after I do? So what if I went to Mass every week for 70 years? Who does it hurt? What is this terrifying cycle? If there's nothing and I believe there is, then my body lies cold and dead in the ground and I was wrong but it didn't matter so who cares. Who am I harming?
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 2:38:26 AM EST (GMT-5)
It isn't the belief that makes you inherently bad it what makes your do. No the Crusades, the War in Iraq, the Spanish Inquisition, these things are bad. I think you are harming someone.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 2:47:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Here's (former) Pope John Paul II speaking out against then War in Iraq: http://www.cjd.org/paper/jp2war.htm...

The Crusades were called in 1095, that's hardly relevant to 2008. The Spanish Inquisition was in the 1400s, I believe. I won't deny a sordid past but I don't see anyone calling for this action anytime in recent history.

Instead organizations like Catholic Charities work on fighting poverty and other community based work.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/23/08 - 2:51:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
So, because a few organizations that are religious do charity that makes them inherently good? Right.

So not all religious people are for the war in Iraq. Again, this doesn't really disprove my point.

The Torch has been passed on to another, sure they will be around, waiting for it to be passed on to they yet again. With out the Torch they are just another aspect of this beautiful and and everchanging world, a mundane congrgation of minds shaping their world as they go along, perpetuating their expectations. Untill they are called yet againg to reshape our world, as so the powers that are see fit: beyond the powers that be.

It can also be adopted, not only passed down from generation to generation... just like people "convert" to Hinduism and other ancient religions that still resonate... Now the ones that no longer resonate, like Chaos based and Matronic worshiping, I like.
