I believe Tom, although he doesn't know it, is on a path to one day believing.
Been there, done that
It's funny that you will sit here and correctly make Catholic arguments on multiple fronts against various forms of Christian foolishness, yet when it comes to Catholicism itself, you will not allow yourself to go there because you are still wedded to the anti-Catholicism sentiment of the older culture you pretend to have rejected.
Based on the ridiculous spin you put on Catholicism and Nazism in this thread, which is a thread about the suicide of a pastor's son, maybe you haven't rejected it enough.
If you could climb into Ludwig Ott's book
and refute any single one of the dozens and dozens of "de fide" statements of dogmatic faith found within it, then maybe you would have a point. If you can't, however, then maybe you don't have a leg to stand on, and maybe you're just clinging to anti-Catholicism in the same way that CarrolltonTiger clings to anti-Zionism.
In any case, now that the anchor has come, I'll go ahead and say what I wouldn't say before, which is that my sympathies lie with Rick Warren's son, and not so much with Rick Warren himself. The situation has all the flashing warning signs of being exactly the type of tragedy that happens when people find themselves trapped within a group that is based on superficial spin rather than humble reality. Given the comments of Rick in the original article, I doubt he's going to change, although it sure would be nice if he did.
