I've noticed plenty of threads arguing the merits of the catholic religon, but no one seems to talk about the damage that certain mainline relgions are doing. I'm talking about John Shelby Spong and the Episcopilian chruch, the Methodist Church, the United Church In Christ, etc. To me, they're more harmful than what the Catholic Church teaches. I manage a Barnes & Noble bookstore and we sell plenty of Spong's "The Sins Of Scripture" and it just annoys me that so many people are being deceived! I've come to the conclusion that these churches are now cults since they have deviated from the fundamental truths (i.e. deny the deity & resurrection of Christ, the Bible isn't the literal word of God, etc.). Believe me, the Baptists have more in common with the Catholic Church than some certain Protestant churches down the street!
