|God 'hates' gays, abortionists, shrimp, figs and Catholics...|
Apparently, when the pastor found out she was Catholic, due to his enthusiastic embracing of what can only be some kind of equal opportunity scheme in the distribution of Christian charity, he told her she shouldn't really come to the Baptist Church for food because, er, she's a Catholic!
I guess, what with being a Catholic, she is already a "lost sheep" in the eyes of pastor Stephen, ensnared, as she is, in Popish superstition, sacramental folly and abject rejection of sola scriptura theology. He indicated to her that because she doesn't go to the Baptist church, she shouldn't come for food. If, by some Miracle, I am allowed back in this Wednesday, I'll gladly point out to him that, as far as I am aware, none of the homeless and poor of Brighton go to attend Sunday services at the Baptist church, so why pick on just the Catholics?
After all, shouldn't he be thanking us since it was the Catholic Church that compiled and translated the Bible from the original Hebrew, then Greek, then Latin or whatever? No Catholic Church = no Bible = no Baptist church = no pastor Steve! It's simple maths! In this week of Prayer for Christian Unity, it only seems fitting to remind him of Christ's proclamation of the Kingdom of Heaven to the Poor and that true Christian unity is to be found in God's One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I'll give the lady in question a bell this week and see if she fancies praying the Rosary in the corner of the room while pastor Stephen gives his biblically-based exegesis on why God sends all Catholics to Hell, or pick him up on any erroneous doctrines that result from his Bible study.
