Marcus et. al.. you are discussing the Catholic Church based on theory, not on practice. In practice the modern Catholic Church is very tolerant about pretty much anything their followers do in private (as it was fairly tolerant about what their popes were doing in the past :-)). I would bet with you that Catholic sex, on average, is a lot more fun than Protestant sex. As far as free will is concerned, Kenny, I can assure you that the Catholic Church totally believes in that concept. Without free will there could be no sin, without sin, there could be no punishment, without punishment, there would be no lever to threaten people into submission. Contrary to the theological randomness of the Protestants, the Catholics are extremely hard at work to make their theology as consistent as logic allows. :-)

Dimitry... you are wrong, again. The one thing that saves "the human mind from the abyss of uncertainty of the real world" is called knowledge. All you need to do to get tolerant human beings is to educate them. Why don't we try that before we declare the world to be unchangeable?

Actually it is not a logical fallacy because it is not an argument but just an insult. Prejudice, bias, stereotype and labels instead of independent thinking were at the beginning and will outlive every religion because they save human mind from the abyss of uncertainty of the real world.

Is that it....an argumentum ad hominem one-liner? 'Babble' wins every time when up against the inanity of a vacant comment.

Each of your comments were sent directly to me. You've clicked the 'reply' tab. And again, if you're more careful in posting your missives, i'll not feel the need to tell you you're barking up the wrong tree. God B.Less

Kenny: I’m sorry to disappoint you but none of my comments was addressed to you otherwise there would be your name in the beginning. I tried to confront two extremes of atheistic and theistic world views addressing myself to imaginary reader. I apologize for this misunderstanding but in this case your behavior resembles one of the dog barking at his own tail. I have read your previous comment and I find your atheistic view quite consistent.

@Dmitry76 Thats 3 times you've written a message to me telling me i'm a puppet in the hands of an omnipotent visible and invisible authority, etc. I haven't decided whether you're an oaf or an idiot yet but why dont you scroll up to any comment i've posted and re-read it SLOWLY. Nothing i've written could be construed as other than the view of an atheist, except apparently by you. If english isn't your first language i suggest you find someone who can read and comprehend it......then apologize and go annoy a theist for a change. So far, all you've done is confirm that some atheists are not necessarily more discerning than theists. Begone, get ye behind me.

I'm kidding. Indeed you just a puppet in the hands of omnipotent both visible and invisible authorities and nothing depends on you. Just give up useless attempts to think independently and follow the orders.
