Theory holds with #2 and 3

So after dinner I decided to check out the ex-Catholic monk and the nun.

It doesn't take a lot to figure out how well catechized someone was. After you get through the gobbledy gook of "I grew up in a Catholic family of umpteen kids and we went to mass every week and I went to catechism and I was abused (physically emotionally and/or sexually) by the (nun, priest, janitor)I start looking for what specific doctrinal points they actually had a problem with.

The nun was easy. She wrote:
How many times do we need to be saved? If I receive Jesus Christ at communion time, what happens to Him during the week that I have to go back and receive Him again? And why should I drink blood when blood is forbidden before the Law (Genesis 9:4); Under the law (Lev. 17:14); and in New Testament times (Acts 15:29; 21:25)? The Bible says Blood is off limits, we are to abstain from blood, but in the Catholic church we are to drink it!


My 8 year old gets the difference between actual blood and the divine Body and Blood of Jesus Christ that we receive in the Holy Eucharist. Readers can check it for themselves at the Catechism of the Catholic Church on this section regarding the Holy Eucharist.


Brother Vadavan is even more vague about his doctrinal differences. He apparently wrote a book about it, but I couldn't find it online or on Amazon or Google Books.

So many of her commenters don't have a link back to their homepage. That strikes me as odd. Maybe I'm missing something...

Who are all these people?

I haven't read them all, but the first few I went through linked to the Jesus-is-lord website.

So, not only is she regurgitating information she read elsewhere, she is not exactly using and unbiased, reputable source for the information she regurgitates.

Chrissy, whenever she posts something like this she gets all kinds of "fans" coming out of the woodwork with no link to a page or email or even a profile. Apparently, her biggest fans and supporters wish to remain anonymous.

This part cracks me up:
"If I receive Jesus Christ at communion time, what happens to Him during the week that I have to go back and receive Him again?"

Well, uh, NOTHING happens to Him. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. However, Sister, things do happen to us. Not to mention that it begs the question can we ever receive TOO MUCH grace?

Faithful Catholic,
You're kind of my hero, you know, with your life of sacrifice and your quick wit. I myself am speechless in the face of so much cluelessness.

Everyone and everything needs a bit of humor; taking life too seriously can be harmful to growth.

Faithful Catholic, your humorous comments give me much needed chuckles when I get to where I want to scream.

Since it's really only been a bit over a week since her last round, a few might be a bit shy of leaving an address for the horde of Catholic barbarians come and hound them.

Heck, I'm on a crusade! Tonight's mission will be to gather the links of the commenters and respond 'in kind.' I do worry that I take some perverse pleasure in this. Pray for me, PLEASE.

BTDT.

For the record Shannon was most ungracious and even mean. You can see her comment to me here.


Sarah on the other hand was nice.
