    My friend who was a missionary and pastor in the Philippines said that until fairly recent times, the Philippines were Catholic and untouched by protestantism, Thus the most outlandish Catholic ppractices were considered normal People flog themselves in through the streets as well.

    This practice has been condemned by the Vatican on numerous occasions. To allow or encourage it is to sanction disobedience!

    No question that Philippines is overwhelmingly a Catholic nation. But, that doesn't mean that these are Catholic practices. They are, in fact, strongly condemned by the Catholic Church. When I lived in California, my next door neighbor was a Baptist Sunday School teacher. She was also a wiccan. Does that mean Wicca is a Baptist practice?

    Okay, so they get crucified - do they get a good scourging too? After all, you can't have one without the other.

    Totally misplaced.

    I do feel for them because it indicates they do not yet understand the Blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.

    Why try to reenact the impossible?

    The Vatican frowns on it. Folk religion

    Shouldn't practicing folk religion within the RCC deserve discipline? Fifty hale Mary's and a couple of Rosary's? (I might have that backwards). If it could be considered heresy, maybe a stretch on the ole rack for old-times sake.

    That's the problem: we've all stopped burning and hanging people for getting it wrong in our eyes when it comes to religion. I blame you Baptists: it was all ok before you came along and taught us tolerance and pluralism; now you can't go to a good burning for love or money

    One if the things which drew me to the Baptists was there non-involvement in torture and mayhem.

    Sadly many protestnt churches have adopted Catholic practices. Many Anglicans have masses and confessions and even Baptists practice Lent and believe in transubstantiation.

    They scourge themselves through the streets.

    Interesting. I have not encountered transubstantiation-believing Baptists in my travels. Are they common where you are?

    I guess whipping the hide off the backs of the slaves that didn't pick cotton fast enough would not count as torture? Why did the SBC apologize for just that reason then?

    Usually, Hank, when I provide proof of Baptist 'bad' behavior, you respond with 'well, nothing compares to what the Catholic Church did!'. When I gave you the link for the Protestant Inquisition which documented hundreds of thousands burned at the stake by Protestants you said you didn't need to read it, you had done your own research. Oh, and the hooey about how Baptists are not 'really Protestants', an idea to which intellectually honest Baptist historians snicker.

    There is plenty of proof that Baptists owned slaves, whipped slaves brutally, considered them livestock, etc. but I suspect that you will say 'it is nothing compared to the Catholics'. Anyway, here is some info for you:

    Yes, the Civil War Was About Slavery | Baptists and the American Civil War: In Their Own Words

    BTW, why would the SBC apologize for the involvement of Baptists in slavery and why was the SBC started? Here is a hint:

    OK Like I said I used a comparative term.

    Personally I am of Italian-Jewish inheritance. All my ancestors arrived after the Civil war.
    To me the RCC church proved her origin with the ocean of blood she has shed.

    I don't blame the innocent laity.

    Their church is responsible for not feeding these poor souls from the Tree of Life.
