IS ROMAN CATHOLICISM A CULT?

IS ROMAN CATHOLICISM A CULT?

TODAY, THE ROMAN CULT PRIEST IN LARNE, CO. ANTRIM, IRELAND, AIDAN KERR, LED MEMBERS OF THE IRISH TRAVELLING COMMUNITY TO BELIEVE, THAT I WAS NOT A PROPER CATHOLIC PRIEST ENTITLED TO CELEBRATE CATHOLIC MARRIAGES.
HERR KERR
HE OBVIOUSLY BELIEVES THAT HIS ROMAN CULT IS THE ONLY BODY IN THE WORLD TO CALL ITSELF CATHOLIC!

IT MAY BE A VERY LONG TIME SINCE HERR KERR DID HIS STUDIES BUT HE NEEDS TO REMEMBER THAT THE WORD "CATHOLIC"   IS A 2ND CENTURY WORD TRANSLATED FROM THE GREEK, VIA LATIN, THAT MEANS "universal, on the whole, according to the whole"

THE ROMAN CULT MAY RECORD 1.2 BILLION NAMES ON ITS BOOKS BUT THE VAST MAJORITY OF THOSE DO NOT GO TO SERVICES.

AND JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN BOAST 1.2 BILLION "MEMBERS" DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE NOT A CULT. ALL IT MEANS IS THAT IT IS A VERY BIG CULT - MAYBE THE WORLD'S BIGGEST CULT.

THE POPULATION OF THE WORLD IS ROUGHLY 7 BILLION. AT 1.2 BILLION THE ROMAN CULT IS THEREFORE TECHNICALLY ONE SEVENTH 1/7 OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION.

CATHOLIC MEANS UNIVERSAL. THE EASTERN ORTHODOX CHURCHES ARE CATHOLIC. THE ANGLICAN CHURCH IS CATHOLIC. THE METHODIST CHURCH IS CATHOLIC. THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IS CATHOLIC. THE OLD CATHOLIC CHURCH IS CATHOLIC. MANY SMALL CHURCHES AND DENOMINATIONS WHO HOLD TO THE CREED ARE CATHOLIC. 

THEY MAY NOT BE ROMAN CATHOLIC - THANK GOD! BUT THEY ARE CATHOLIC.

HOW DARE THE ROMAN CULT THINK THEY CAN HIJACK THE TERM CATHOLIC.

THE TRADITIONAL MARKS OF THE CHURCH OF CHRIST ARE 1. UNITY; 2. SANCTITY; 3. APOSTOLICITY; 4 CATHOLICITY.

DOES THE ROMAN CULT FULFILL THESE ANCIENT MARKS?
-------------------------------------------------

1. IS THE ROMAN CULT UNITED? NO ITS NOT. ITS NOT UNITED WITH MOST OTHER CHURCHES. ITS NOT EVEN UNITED WITHIN ITSELF.

JUST LOOK HOW THE CORRUPT ROMAN CURIA ARE REACTING TO POPE FRANCIS, THE REFORMER. THEY WILL RESIST HIM EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. AND IF NECESSARY THEY WILL KILL HIM THE WAY THE KILLED POPE JOHN PAUL 1.

-----------------------------------------------------

2. IS THE ROMAN CULT SANCTIFIED AND HOLY?

LOOK AT ITS HISTORY - CRUSADES; MURDERING POPES; THE INQUISITION, ETC.


LOOK AT IT AT PRESENT - THE CORRUPT VATICAN BANK; THE CORRUPT CURIA; THE PEDOPHILIA CRISIS; THE ABUSE OF POWER; THE ABUSE OF WEALTH AND MONEY. 

-------------------------------------------------------

3. IS THE ROMAN CULT APOSTOLIC?

CAN WE SEE MUCH IN IT THAT IS LIKE THE APOSTLES? A MONARCHAL POPE; A HIERARCHY OF POWER ABUSERS; A HIERARCHY OF PEOPLE COVERING UP THE ABUSE OF CHILDREN; THE ABUSE OF WOMEN; THE SEXUAL HANGUPS; 

WHICH APOSTLE - APART FROM JUDAS PERHAPS, DOES THE ROMAN CULT REMIND YOU OF?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. IS THE ROMAN CULT "CATHOLIC"?

I SEE NOTHING UNIVERSAL ABOUT IT. ITS WORLD POWER BASE IS BASED IN A FANTASY STATELET INSIDE THE CITY OF ROME. MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN POWER ARE ITALIANS. IT DOES NOT OBSERVE INTERNATIONAL / UNIVERSAL LAW. IT DOES NOT SUPPORT OR DEFEND HUMAN RIGHTS. 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

IS IT A CULT?

1. IT BELIEVES THAT ITS HEAD - ONE MAN - IN INFALLIBLE AND CAN DO NOT WRONG.

2. IT HAS TEACHINGS THAT DEFY RATIONALITY AND SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE.

3. ITS FINANCIAL DEALINGS ARE CORRUPT AND SECRET.

4. IT BELIEVES THAT IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO INTERNATIONAL LAW.

5. IT BELIEVES THAT WHEN ITS HEAD MAN SPEAKS - GOD SPEAKS.

6. IT WANTS TO CONTROL EVERYONE'S SEXUALITY.

7. MANY OF ITS SUB GROUPS - THE LEGIONARIES OF CHRIST, OPUS DEI, THE NEOCATECHUMENATE; COMMUNION AND LIBERATION; FOCOLARE;  ETC - CUT PEOPLE OFF FROM THEIR FAMILIES AND BRAINWASH THEIR MEMBERS. 

8. IT INTERFERES IN WORLD POLITICS.

9 IT TELLS YOU THAT IF YOU DON'T DO WHAT ITS LEADERS SAY YOU WILL SUFFER ETERNAL DAMNATION. 

10. IT SPREADS MISINFORMATION. 

SOUNDS VERY MUCH LIKE A CULT TO ME ???

SO - HERR KERR, FROM LARNE - I AM NOT, THANK GOD A MEMBER OF YOUR CULT.

I AM NOT A "CATHOLIC" LIKE YOU AT ALL - THANK GOD.

YOU MIGHT BE A "CULTIC CATHOLIC" BUT YOU AND THE ORGANISATION YOU SUPPORT AND ACT FOR, IS AS MUCH LIKE THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE NEW TESTAMENT AS ROCKS ARE LIKE BREAD.

  1. As a member of the Church of Ireland I have always taken great exception to the Church of Rome thinking it has a monopoly on catholicism.

    Every Sunday at church I profess my faith in the one, holy, catholic and apostolic church.

    But I am not a papist. In fact I am a non papist catholic

    1. Mervyn,

      You confirm the point I am making.

  2. My name is Grainne. Two years ago I met and fell in love with a man who happened to be divorced. His wife had been unfaithful to him and walked out and left him and their two children.

    My "Catholic" parish priest told me that he would not marry me and that if I married anywhere else I would be an adulterer and he would have to refuse me holy communion at Sunday Mass.

    My cousin, a religious order priest, sent us to Bishop Pat Buckley. We went to his house shaking with nerves.

    Bishop Pat greeted us at the door with a smile. He brought us in and made us tea. He listened to our story. He never judged us.

    Six months later he celebrated a full Catholic Wedding Mass for us in the hotel we were having our reception in.

    I did not meet the compassion of Christ in my own priest.

    I did find it in Bishop Pat.

    I am not an intellectual. I do not understand what a "catholic" is or should be. But I do know that in Bishop Pat I met a Christian.

    But maybe its more important to be a card carrying "catholic"?

    1. Thank you Grainne.

      I do not believe that I did anything for you that Christ would not have done.

      I hope that everyone is well and happy.

      Pat

  4. How can someone like the so called Rev Kerr dare to point the finger at any other priest at all?

    Do these old geezers not realise that we, the Irish People, have at last copped on to the farce of Rome?

  6. Went abit above my head this one I'm afraid. Is Herr Kerr off on a tangent of his own or is he mainstream. The Travelling Community- in my limited knowledge- have a unique understanding on things religious and sacramental. Once or twice I have had a phonecall requesting contact details for your good self, Pat. I conclude that the main thing is that the peoples spiritual welfare and development come first-Sean
