I guess "heresy" is in the eye of the beholder.
Some of these are schisms, rather than heresies. Should I pop some popcorn? ;-)
No matter who you are, you're a heretic to somebody.
Heresy support group, anyone? "My name is Larry, and I'm a heretic." "Hi, Larry!!!"
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic Ping List:
Please ping me to all note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of interest.
Christianity is a heresy of Judaism.
Judism is a heresy of the Earth Mother-Sky Father religion.
Or, if you prefer, there were no heresies until the council of Nicea defined Orthodoxy, and Christianity became the state religion of the Roman Empire.
Or, if you prefer, there were no heresies until the council of Nicea defined Orthodoxy, and Christianity became the state religion of the Roman Empire.Actually, one of the reasons for the Council was the Arian heresy.
(Let's ping some more people too just to get things going)
"...Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!"

Notice how he left out the "filioque" heresy, the Roman Schism of 1054 when Rome left The Church, the earlier Roman Schism, tied to the Frankish innovation of the filioque of the 9th century, the heresies of the Council of Lyons in the 12th century, those of the Council of Trent in the 16th and of course the 19th century heresies promulgated by Vatican I (which trace their heritage back to the Dictatus Papae of the 11th century). We'll leave Vatican II aside for now.
"Please ping the relevant lists, thanks."
You really don't want me to ping the Orthodox list with this. :(
