On another thread, I posted a quote from Sen. Brownback (who converted from evangelical beliefs to the Roman Catholic church) in which he said Quote: "Joining the Catholic Church was joining the early church. This is the mother church. This is the church out of which orthodoxy and Protestantism came." http://tinyurl.com/o97nv No one had any problems with this statement there so far. I was pretty surprised at the non-reaction. If moderators want to close down the other thread where I started this (in Current Events), please do. I primarily want to know what Baptists think. Do Baptists believe the RC Church is the "mother church?" Do Baptists on this thread have an issue with Brownback's statement? Why or why not?
