I would have to.  He's not interested in this place.

I disagree with Kimmy.  But then, I disagree with DoP too, sometimes. 

For me, that's what it's all about.

Attaboy. Phew.

Disagreeing with Catholicism is considered anti-Catholic?

Noooo.   Calling it 'Insidious' and words like that.  Liberals would squawk if somebody said that about Muslims, why is it ok to insult Catholicism ?

I think they’re both  insidious...   taking children and indoctrinating them is the textbook definition of insidious.

It’s insulting a religion....   that’s like insulting McDonalds. 

It’s not the same as insulting a person.

It comes and goes like the tides. Maybe you haven't noticed since your opinions are more amenable to CA.

Yeah, name one.

I agree with this.  As long as he refrains from saying "all Catholics", there's nothing wrong with describing a religion using its worst characteristics.

So then what schools do when they teach them about progressive social beliefs and values is insidious indoctrination?

You're starting to convince me, but the word "insidious" means harmful, or a threat.  This is the type of propaganda the Nazis deployed against the Jews, and leans towards hate-mongering.

It could be called so, but since there isn't a "people" associated with social progressivism it's not the same as hate-mongering.

So THAT's okay. As long as the indoctrination is done in a direction you like.

We're not talking about hate mongering. We're talking about the Catholic church. I was IN a Catholic church yesterday for a funeral. The priest took the opportunity while there were so many unfamiliar faces to do a little preaching. He used Matthew as an example of who gets to go to paradise and who isn't, and he says to the people he's chosen to go to paradise:

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’


Is this hatemongering indoctrination? It seemed to me the message was 'be kind to one another'.

At what point does criticism become hate-mongering? I would think it come well after the point of describing indoctrination practices as "insidious", whether that be criticism of progressive education or of religious groups.
