Hey everyone. This journal is gonna seem unusual because I've never really done a journal like this before, but I've been dealing with a lot of religious confusion and I'd like to see if any of you out there can help me.
Granted, this probably isn't the BEST place to ask these questions, but I'm curious to see what your answers are. I have other people in my life to ask too, but I just wanna see what you think.
As some of you may know, I'm a Catholic-Christian.
1.) Why are Catholicism and Christianity considered different? All Catholics are Christians, but not all Christians are Catholics. Why is that?
2.) Why don't Non-Catholic Christians observe Lent?
3.) Why don't Non-Catholic Christians do Communion at the end of each Mass?
4.) Why do Catholics perceive the Pope as the leader of our faith?
5.) Why are Christian priests allowed to marry when Catholic priests are considered "married to God?"
6.) Why does the world tend to perceive Catholicism as a "lazy" form of Christianity, when really, it's not?
7.) Why do us Christians and Catholics refuse to allow Homosexual marriage, even though it's actually un-Christian to force your beliefs on others? Doesn't that seem like a double-whammy? (Please don't get into arguments about this one or I will block your comments and delete this journal)
