"Protestants are either cowering on the sidelines collecting "Precious Moments" trinkets while patting themselves on the back for having a queer as their Pastor"
I haven't seen a single negative reply from any of you over that - quite the opposite, in fact. Yes, the true church everywhere is made up of saved sinners - including my own local church - imagine that!. I was merely pointing out the some of the hypocrisy in this thread.
Protestant sects are ultimately about self-declared dogma with no authority other than popularity (voting on dogma).
Due to the Fall, that automatically deteriorates into dogmatic declarations in favor of sin:
holy homosexual “marriage”
holy divorce and remarriage
holy women pastors
holy proud actively homosexual bishops
holy birth control
Catholicism is filled with sinners, but does not change dogma to accomodate the sins and the sinners. Catholics in authority do not alter dogma to accomodate sin.
The very first protestant sect began by altering dogma to accomodate sin. It continues to this day.
