Catholics have always been accused by many for not using their Bibles, but I can't agree entirely with that. In fact, I feel as though Rev.Wright used my favorite childhood Biblical verse for political purposes this past Sunday. The verse is a passage the nuns would tell you to use if a Protestant challenged you on belonging to the "One True Faith", which of course was the Catholic Church...The Church. The proof was with St.Peter. We were told this by millions of nuns. I did use the verse, many times, though I never made any conversions, I was able to stand my ground.

So according to the nuns teachings, we got our first Pope and the one and only Church.

We’re sure Obama’s thrilled...Continued
