in response to reader comment: Fools paradise

Sorry to shatter YOUR paradise, Mansoor, but the Vatican was talking about Catholicism, not Christianity as a whole.

Quoting the Vatican spokesman, Monsignor Vittorio Formenti - "When considering all Christians and not just Catholics, Christians make up 33%."


Read the WHOLE THING, Mansoor - it would seem the Vatican does not recognize Christianity as a religion. Only Catholism. Gee, what a surprise.

Catholics = 17.4% Muslims = 19.2% Christians = 33%

ONE-THIRD of the world's population is Christian. ONE-FIFTH of the world's population is Muslim.


With regards to the "gospel" of Thomas, it has never been considered part of the Bible. There are many reasons for this. Look THEM up.
