For more interesting information on the Catholic Church can be found in the Book Called ” The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Popes and the Papacy ” You can buy the book for cheap on Amazon.com or you can probably get at the Public Library, to borrow. It’s a real eye opener on the corruption of the leadership of the Roman Catholic, its Popes, Bishops, priests. The Roman Catholic Church’s: selling of salvation, bribing and buying their ecclesiastical offices, positions of power such as the office of Pope, living opulent lifestyles, and their sexual immorality
Quotes from the book ” The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Popes and the Papacy “ :
– Galileo was summoned before the Inquisition in an Rome and put on trail; he was shown the instruments of torture in a successful effort to persuade him to renounce his beliefs. (page 187)
– John XII who became pope at the tender age of 19, apparently still had some wild oats to sow. During his pontificate, the papal residence was derided as a brothel (page 51)
– Pope John XIX offered sufficiently large bribes to secure his election as Pope (page 51)
– The most notorious Pope Alexander VI, Born Rodgrigo Borgia…… a superb politician, but his many mistresses, his numerous illegitimate children, his boundless greed, his ruthlessness … (page 54)
– Pope came into office as a puppet of the emperor and empress….. he had acquired the papacy by underhanded means- namely, the seizure, persecution, and starvation to death of a legitimately elected predecessor (page 91)
– The indulgences that first drew Luther’s ire, for instance, were scraps of parchment purchased by his parishioners that had guaranteed not only their own deliverance from purgatory, but also the salvation of errant grandparents. Quite a bargain. (page 156)
As a former Roman Catholic, I was also surprised and shocked, that Roman Catholic Church’s official catechism for confirmation classes on the teaching Ten commandments they leave out God’s commandment “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them” It’s in the Bible though Exodus 20.
