More Hot Air Anti-Catholic Bigotry...

This thread is a goldmine of the examples of bigotry that Hot Air allows in their comments. The thread is 8 pages long. The anti-Catholicism begins on page 1, accelerates on page 2, and it just all goes downhill from there.

From "money2":

Is the Pope going to lecture Catholic Priests to stop raping and molesting boys? Catholics are not even Christians to begin with. Martin Luther agrees with this statement

Here's a run of comments by a guy named "TTheoLogan":

Okay, I’m not Catholic, but I find myself liking this Pope more and more. Sure, he’s not as “glamorous” and rock-starish as John Paul II, but it’s great to see that he has the chutzpah to directly confront & challenge America’s wayward liberal “leaders” (quotes intended).

Did you like him when he said all non-catholic churches are false?

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 12:16 PM


Thank you, Your Holiness. It’s about time.

How is he more holy than anyone else?

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 12:21 PM


Catholics didn’t compose the Law.

baldilocks on February 18, 2009 at 12:25 PM

They claim they have a monopoly on scripture, didn’t you know that?

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 12:26 PM

Here's where he admits that he'd unapologetically attack Mormonism as well. This is the state of "conservatives" on Hot Air:

You obviously have a problem with the Catholic Church. I hope you work it out somehow.

baldilocks on February 18, 2009 at 12:30 PM

I’d post the same things if they posted mormon stuff on here.

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 12:31 PM


Sure, it’s not like popes throughout history have called non-catholics and their churches heretical.

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 12:30 PM

All Christians believe they have the truth. That would mean in the eyes of each and every one, a contradictory teaching is heretical.

The Church teaches that in all faiths there is a kernel of truth. It is only in the Catholic Church that the fullness of truth, as God has revealed it, can be found. Every Protestant Christian accepts or rejects elements of Catholic doctrine. This is not a which came first scenario. The Catholic Church came first, everyone else accepts or rejects her.

Right, but catholics tend to burn and torture who they consider heretics.

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 12:50 PM


The Church is not punishing him they are attempting to have him rethink his errors.
Contrary to your thinking the Vatican does not have secret torture chambers

clarifides on February 18, 2009 at 1:12 PM

They certainly have in the past. I have no idea whether or not they do now.

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 1:13 PM


The catholic church… the biggest religious power grab in history.

1.Hey, let’s claim we put together the bible!
2.Hey, let’s claim that peter was the first pope and he gave us the right to determine future popes!
3.Hey, let’s claim our tradition has precedence over the bible!
4.Hey, let’s claim only we can determine the will of God and this pope guy is the vicar of Christ on earth!

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 1:15 PM

Long_cat apparently thinks that it's smart to bash Catholics as the "whore of Babylon" notwithstanding that they're perhaps the strongest anti-abortion force on the planet:

First, the Catholic Church is the Whore of Babylon as written in the book of Revelations. Second, according to the Bill of Rights, we are granted Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Nowhere does it say life begins after a trimester, after you are born, etc. Once a child is conceived, it is granted these rights, and I consider it murder to abort an innocent human being under any circumstance. Pelosi is an evil crook, the Pope is a figurehead for an “organization”. Does it really surprise anyone that these two are meeting in secret?

long_cat on February 18, 2009 at 1:23 PM


Another ridiculous comment…why do you keep doing this to yourself? God is all, end of discussion. Catholics also pray to the saints to intercede with God on our behalfs. This in no way obviates our ability to pray directly to God-I do it all the time. However, if you choose not to believe that the saints can intercede with God, then don’t ask them to. It doesn’t matter to me in the slightest.

I know this will be hard for you to accept, but catholicism is not monotheistic. You cannot have catholicism with other gods(who you call saints) and the great coredemptrix, mary. It’s really sad you guys are still pushing this after the tearing of the curtain to the holy place after Christ was resurrected.

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 1:51 PM

Here's a snarky edit of another person's post by the resident bigot:


your anti-Catholic remarks refusal to assimilate is very tiresome. It is the same old accusations that have honestly no basis in fact. You claim to be a Christian and yet you continually bash refuse to assimilate with many of your fellow Christians and tow the party line just because they are Catholic? That is very sad and doesn’t speak well of you.

TTheoLogan on February 18, 2009 at 1:57 PM

It basically devolves into another "I'm a Protestant let me quote the TRUE meaning of the Bible to you" verses "I'm Catholic and you're misrepresending me" threads. I don't know why Hot Air thinks this is appropriate. The bigots clearly run the roost over there.
