Well, we may have lost this election, but there's a much smaller blog vote coming up in a few weeks and I promise you, that I am going to give my full effort to making sure that we don't lose that one.
Count on it.
FOLLOWUP - We don't have to do Candy's Whore of Babylon nonsense- because we already did it. See all of our rebuttals here.
Also the Catholic Church does not teach that Christ has already had his second coming. From the catechism:
2612 In Jesus "the Kingdom of God is at hand." He calls his hearers to conversion and faith, but also to watchfulness. In prayer the disciple keeps watch, attentive to Him Who Is and Him Who Comes, in memory of his first coming in the lowliness of the flesh, and in the hope of his second coming in glory. In communion with their Master, the disciples' prayer is a battle; only by keeping watch in prayer can one avoid falling into temptation.
2859 By the second petition, the Church looks first to Christ's return and the final coming of the Reign of God. It also prays for the growth of the Kingdom of God in the "today" of our own lives.
There are others but that's the drift. Every mass we say, "Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again."
Also when I google Preterism and The Catholic Church - my only hits are from anti-Catholic sites (big surprise right?) The term "preterism" does not appear in the Catechism.
Interestingly when I called Candy on the fact that Catholics don't believe this and the church doesn't teach it she replied:
I didn't at all say "the Jesuits believe the second coming already happened." Nor do I think they believe that. This is the basis of your and other hate sites - to take my words, twist them, misunderstand them (often purposely, no doubt) and make a big hoopla over a totally non-existent issue.But when I pointed out that her articles says:
Jesuits from the Roman Catholic Church came up with the severely errant Preterist view of the book of Revelation. Full Preterists believe that all of Revelation already happened, even Jesus' second coming!
Then she wrote back, "Exactly"
So whatever. She is wrong. She will not admit she was wrong. Her entire article concerning Catholicism and Obama is science fiction at best.
