sort of continued from the previous ...

the RC, otherwise understood as the Race Card ;)

this would be their best vote ... at present, because the humdrum of Religious Freedom is not only ragged but worn thin ... in this day. Why? too many catholics spotting too many beliefs. are we correct on this? any counter group or government can say, hey, no ... you have 3 billion catholics believing "x" about __, __ and ___, and only 3 million believing "z", therefore, your members have essentially voted out the minority on __, __ and ___. what else do you have to bring to the table "z" believers? uh ... um  ...

race---we are a race and wish to not disappear. those other catholics have intermarried. we have not and cannot because we believe in pure 'blood' ethics (I think they usually spout "morals" and not ethics ... but, hey, just helping out here) 

government then says ... hmm ... you have a point ... (especially as they are just as adept at silencing and shouting out people not like them. isn't that right, ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH ... you would know all about that---yes?)

anywho ... 

the apostolic succession in all of this? if trying to establish some form of credibility ... well, I know many Greek Orthodox who would readily tell you that some of their members are direct descendants of the apostles ... and, they would be correct ... (some) ... but the change that occurred from then to now is astronomical and the "marriage bed" much perverted (lots of stuff added ... kinda reminds me of when I was a child, I had to have every stuffed animal I owned in bed with me at night :D  ... as I grew, I realized my double bed wasn't large enough to house my growing person AND all those additional animals) ... 

Greek Orthodox? also a race ... most definitely--- a race. 

I had a brief discussion with a non believer in Spirit not long ago on the topic of race. surprisingly, he saw this as a black and white meaning. I saw it as principles and beliefs as well as practices-lifestyle ... and not so much a black and white meaning.
why? intermarriage---ecumenicism. there is such a blend of races/people in the world today and this is happening in a way that people can WITNESS its occurrence---we have VISIBLE evidence, so the black and the white sounds shallow ... like one is going strictly by appearances. 

now, many white or light skinned people can say their line began in what is now called sudan---the region called the sudan. was it a dark-skinned peoples way back in the day of the first peoples? does any man know? I doubt it. 

now ...

the PETER succession claimed by the rcc ...
where is the proof on this? theologians have moved and are moving away from this belief, although from what we see, many RCs have not. they believe most ardently that their popes are iron clad Peter's chair line ... the only problem is that Peter did not have a chair, at least not an institution called rome that he used as truth on the Word of God.

Sheesh, anyone, or any group, sect, race or religion can map out a dynasty claiming itself THE CHAIR if going by biblical interpretations. if man stayed on this ... HIS INTERPRETATIONS ... women would still be property and non believers of said system would have ... disappeared. isn't that right, roman catholics? you do realize your institution set out to RULE the world? sounds a bit like that orc mantra in islam-cult-land: we will rule the world! how drugg infested and illicit those war-mongering habits ... sheer evil ... death be not proud you ugly bastards.
no, I have no love of this race of miscreants, but catholics ... do THANK GOD for the chastising---yes? had your predecessors had their way ... imagine the number abused, silenced, tortured ... converted and murdered. 

continued ...
