And, changed thread title from "your beliefs" to "Tell us about your Beliefs/religions" and corrcted poll title and question from "or what's ur religion" to "or, what is your religion?" And, corrected Atheist poll choice from "dont' believe in any kind of religion" to "don't believe in existence of god/gods" 03/19/07 ~Tombow>

The religian is "Christianity" it is split in 2 "Cahtolics" and "Protestants" ( don't know if I translated it right ) Catholic is the original christianity, protestantism split off in the 16'th century, the protestants were against the statues in churches etc.

the protestants were against mary as a holy one!..... and they were against Paul, and Petrus, and martin, and all the others as holy ones.......

Jesus is the only holy one!!

Satanism doesn't sound too bad, it's a very individulaistic religion. the thing is, most people think it's so bad becasue of the misconceptions, but once you try to find evidence for most of the negative things, there are none.

well, actually Catholic comes from Rome, and in "Jesus" times, there are no such thing as "protestants" and "catholics", I think until some Roman ruler order the whole nation to believe in God, and so.. there u go.. Catholics are currently more to be called Roman Catholic.. and I don't think Protestants didn't deny Paul, Peter, etc, etc, I think the one who started 'Protestants' was Martin Luther. He PROTESTED the Roman Catholic church because of a problem thing.. so they called it "Protestants"
Mary is to be called the "Holy Mother" (I think) in the Catholics, but protestants only believe that Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit is the Holy One, well obviously because they're not humans! Mary is a human, so there's a BIG difference.. Jesus was human, but he didnt' sin at all, so he's holy.
Roman Catholic have more rules (I knw, coz my school used to be a Catholic school)
and, if I'm not wrong, they deny the statues in the churches, because those statues might be wrong... No one ever knows what does Peter, John, Luke, (and the rest of 12 disciples), Jesus, and Mary looks like. Even the picture "The Last Supper" by Da Vinci was by Da Vinci's own imagination.
phew.. so does that sort of explain?

did you all know how the religion of the catholics with Mary as their Mother was created?!?!
in the Bible, Mary is never mentioned as often as Jesus, so it's more sure that Jesus is the really and only God..

The Romans in the early years(around<100) searched a religion which was christian and would persuade most of the Roman people... The Romans thought that the Christians weren't as bad as they thought, cause you could rely on them and they are peaceful.
But the Roman reigners wanted that all the Romans believed in Christianity to be good in their doings.

And because at that time, most of the Roman people were believing in nature Gods or stones or in fertile Gods like Artemis who had 1000 breasts in order to give milk to many children..
That's why the Romans said -> "Mary is the new God" she is Christian and she is a woman(sign of fertility), so that many will be convinced of this religion in future...

That's how it was... the Bible was "reinterpreted" from the Roman rulers, what is not right only in order to "christianize" many people...
On the one hand, it's good that more people got christian, but they believed in the wrong things^^;;;

Artemis/Diana wasn't the goddess of fertility. She was a virgin, and basically the patron goddess of women who eschewed the company of men. She was also the goddess of the moon and the hunt. She certainly didn't have 1,000 breasts, and as she had never had sexual intercourse, let alone had a child, even if she did, they wouldn't give any milk.

Also, I think that the question wasn't "What's the difference between Protestant and Catholic?" but rather "What's the difference between Christian and Catholic?". It was a mistake in the poll up there - the options are "christian" and "catholic," rather than "protestant" and "catholic."

Personally, I'm atheist. It works out well; I sleep in on Sundays, and can blaspheme to my heart's content. Whee.
