Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Is this true information about the Muslims ? or is it a conspiracy ?

I've been trying to figure out a way to say this gracefully. Thank you, Sword, for making this point:

"Do you understand that Christian & Catholic do not mean the same thing? Do you understand that the chasm between Catholicism & Protestantism is no smaller than that which exists betwen Catholicism & Judaism? Do you understand the concept that a child baptised into the Church does not mean the same thing as a being a practising Christian?"

It's a very important detail to me, especially since the actions of Catholics have been used on a regular basis to beat Christians over the head by the Muslim element on this board. I hope this will be noted by those who don't seem to be aware of the difference. I'm also in total agreement with the rest of your comment, and to think this guy's whole point was to make Christians look bad and Germans so innocent. I guess he just needed to be educated at the School of Sword.
