Why I call "Itchy Watch", a
[QUOTE who="Itchy Watch"]Take a couple of days off and you two morons are still stroking each other. Now it's politics. And looks like we struck a nerve. From the largely incoherent Itchy rant, it appears that he would deny comprehensive healthcare to women because he's so obsessed with telling them what to do with their own bodies. Very disturbing, Itchy. Despite the ongoing stream of bull**** from Rome, the vast majority of Catholics don't agree with the Church's teachings on human sexuality. And thank God for that.[/QUOTE]

What Does It Mean to be a Roman Catholic?
Roman Catholicism comprises the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. It stands under the authority of the bishop of Rome, the pope, and is led by him and bishops who are held to be, through ordination, successors of Peter and the apostles. Doctrine and sacraments are administered by the hierarchy of archbishops, bishops, priests, and deacons. As successor to Peter, the pope is considered the Vicar of Christ. Roman Catholics believe their church to be the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church, possessing all the properties of the one, true church of Christ.
The faith of the church is understood to be identical with that taught by Christ and his apostles and contained in the Bible and tradition. New definitions of doctrines, such as the Immaculate Conception of Mary (1854) and the bodily Assumption of Mary (1950), have been declared by popes, however. At Vatican Council I (1870) the pope was proclaimed “endowed with infallibility, ex cathedra, in other words, when exercising the office of pastor and teacher of all Christians.”
The center of Roman Catholic worship is the celebration of the Mass, the Eucharist, which is the commemoration of Christ's sacrificial death and resurrection. Other sacraments are baptism, confirmation, penance, matrimony, anointing of the sick (formerly known as extreme unction), and holy orders. The Virgin Mary and the other saints, and their relics, are venerated, and prayers are made to them to intercede with God, in whose presence they are believed to dwell.
The Roman Catholic Church is the largest Christian organization in the world, found in most countries
Thus one that does not follow the teachings of the Catholic Faith,
