    The RC church believes Pat (c 340-440 )was a Saint of the Church.
    There have been Baptist preachers who believe that Pat was a Baptist.

    So what do you think?

    vote in the poll - and it is a multi-choice poll

    I voted for Patrick being both Roman Catholic and saved. Since the two arent mutually exclusive thats fine by me. :)

    I also voted for other because there are lots of other to consider.

    I doubt Patrick was a Baptist since Baptists didnt exist until the 1600s and thus there is simply no way they would intersect this side of eternity. (Why is it so many Baptist preachers love appropriating the good guys of churcb history sans actual historical context?)

    Anyhoo I hear he made a great pint too!
