Why are Non Catholic Christians so afraid of Catholics?

Q: Why are Non Catholic Christians so afraid of Catholics?

A: Typical protestant theology is so superficial and so ill formed that many Bible believing protestants are simply afraid to look past their own preacher’s very limited understanding of things.

And if they ever do, they run smack-dab into our awesome God, and his one, holy, apostolic and universal Church … smells, bells, liturgy, sacraments, devotions … and everything else that goes with it.

Not knowing what to make of things Catholic, they protest and recoil, missing out on the best that God has to give, settling instead for the spiritual equivalent of the “crumbs” that Jesus offered to the Samaritans.

In short, they fear and often hate what they fail to understand, and not understanding, they miss out.

The exceptions to this are certainly worth noting, since their ranks include former protestants from every age.

  1. Seems you are just as fearful, or at least hateful, as they are – a very nasty statement.
    True, the catholic faith is beautiful and all inclusive. I am an Anglican and we have no beliefs of our own but those of the catholic faith.
    Why am I not a Roman Catholic? – because I am not Irish and I have nothing in common with the Irish. In Australia, and I suspect in USA, Catholic is an ethnicity not a religion. We have people who were catholics – read Irish – as children but who have long since abandoned the church but insist that their children marry in a Catholic – read Irish- church and that their grand-children go to a Catholic -read Irish- school. In the Catholic school which my grandson attends, the children of lapsed Catholics are preferred over the children of practicing Christians of other denominations. Perhaps that is why many protestants fear Catholics – they want Christianity and don’t want to be bogged down in an ethnicity.

    • Further to the above, all Catholic art is Italian, and I have nothing in common with Italians. Hence Catholicism presents to the world as a closed system of ethnicities and there is no way in for other Christians. The Catholic system has no mission to other Christians and no real ecumenism, despite what some may say.
      Perhaps that is why it is disliked.
