The Problem With Semantics

In case you can' t read this, the posted sign reads:

"Bill Stickers Will be Prosecuted"

The graffiti response reads, "

"Bill Stickers is innocent."

In case semantics has gotten in your way:

Orthodox don't worship Mary, we venerate her.

Praying to saints is "asking them to pray for us", not attributing to them the power and ability of God to change things in our lives.

Kissing the hand of the Priest is honoring what that hand does in offering the Eucharist, not worshiping the man who owns the hand.

And so on and so on...

Do you really want to know what the Church has always held or will you continue to diatribe and be dogmatic to the detriment of your own soul?
