    Yes...everybody knows that the roman catholic church has a horrendous "history". What does taht mean "today"? Not much...I still disagree wtih the church, but you cannot compare it to what is going on NOW.

    I'm "here" and "now". Defining a group based of of ancestral decisions is quite unfair.

    Trust me, i get irritated by the constant badgering, but I'd hardly say they persecute anybody--at least not as a whole.
    Research Dominionism and tell me then.

    Research consipiracy theory and you've got my perspective.

    I understand that large institutions have shady dealings...they all do. And yes, I'm sure the RC church would love to dominate the world again. but, what does that mean about the "people" who define christianity? nothing. their actiosn define them. so far, they're very tolerant here iand NOW.

    The Church of England was modeled after the Roman Catholic Church. It was only formed because of royal disagreement with the church (the whore king wanted a divorce). They were almost the same person in a different suit.

    There were 2 breaks not just 1. And the 1st may have started about the divorce but ended with the pillage of the Church.

    Just to clarify my position so those that I care about here that consider themselves Christians don`t feel insulted.

    I do not Demonize Christianity or Christians or the Bible. I couldn`t. Because although I walk a Buddhist path the teachings of Jesus are near and dear to me. There are leaps of faith that I am unwilling at this time to take to be called simply Christian.

    However there has been a movement that started a long time ago to reclaim the USA as the "Dominion of Christ"*.
    Call me crazy or a nut, it`s been done before, but I do see too many things that are more than coincidence. And after reading many of the writings of the leaders of these movements I sincerly hope to be proved a wacko along with a lot of other extremely knowledgeable folks.
