    Some time ago (a few years) I mentioned on BB that the Roman Catholic church was quite tolerant, in South America and the Caribbean, of voudoun and other shamanistic religions as long as the people also attended the RC church.

    Well, they are getting a little less tolerant now, as it seems even their priests in South Africa have been moonlighting as witch doctors:

    Most people in the world tend to think of Roman Catholicism when they think of Christian. That has brought shame and disgrace to the name of Christianity for a very long time. It seems now that even the priests of this religion are not confident of what they are supposed to be teaching and preaching.

    Actually, I don't think there are a lot of actual Christ followers and believers in the world compared with those who claim it. So many truly do take the name of God in vain when they call themselves Christian.
