  • All the Wiccans I've ever met were either former Catholics or were both. I'm not Catholic but I'm a Christian that doesn't believe in recruitment. It's just not what I'm called to. If God wants me to help someone he'll either send them to me or send me to them when they're ready. I'm not going to force anything by knocking on doors or whatever.

  • What's new? When I use to go to Mormon church they use to teach you in class about how your non-moron friends were evil and will not got to heaven unless we brought them to church and converted them down the right path. They use to tell our classes that Mormon was the only correct and right religion and all the others were lying and fake. Needless to say I'm an Atheist now.

  • It is not from the Catholic Church- its from a group called Catholic Truth- the title of your post made it look like the Vatican put out a pamphlet-
    HUGE difference between "The Catholic Church does......." and "A group with the word Catholic in the name does......."

  • It's not surprising to me, all Christians are taught that they need to convert others to Christianity to save them from hell.

  • "suggests that Catholics spark up conversations with these unbelievers about shared concerns such as the environment"


    This is the only piece makes sense to me. My preference would be that that commonality would not be used to convert. But, for those who think that they are supposed to do that...at least they make common ground before they warn you of your dark arts, lol

  • Egotistical, presumptuous and, of course, rude. Not that that will stop anyone.
