Why do Baptists hate Catholics?



So I've been dating a this girl for almost 3 years. We eventually want to get married when we get out of school. She wants to convert to Catholicism so we can get married. Her parents are hardcore Baptists, and when she told them this they blew up on her. They said if she does convert, she will not be allowed in their house anymore. Most of her family agrees with her parents, and they haven't talked to her in weeks. And this isn't the first time something like this has happened. I've been to church with her a few times, and their preacher constantly bashes Catholics. So why do they hate us so fricking much?

There are two sides to this story bub.

I am baptist but was always the black sheep in my ex's family because I was not catholic.

Why don't catholic churches allow for a whole wedding ceremony just because one person may not be catholic?

its sad to see people choose religious supersticions over family.

eta: if shes converting because she actually wants to convert i wouldn't worry about her family getting pissed off. if they love her, they'll eventually get over it.

Why does she have to convert to Catholicism for you to get married?

I know lots of Baptist and they do not hate Catholics-

but for clarification of their differences-

Things Catholics believe that Baptists do not believe:

1. Pope is infalliable ( I know lots of Catholics who do not believe this)

2. Position of Mary in the Catholic church

3. Differing views on eternal life, salvation adn how to get to heaven

4. Belief in purgatory

5. Catholic church is the only true church

Don't know what you mean by "whole" ceremony but you can marry in the Church even if you're not marrying a Catholic as long as you go through the prep for it and agree to raise the kids Catholic.

A telling line. Why is it necessary for her to convert? Something you are insisting upon? Or your family? Or the Catholic church? I was raised Baptist and married a Catholic, in a Catholic church, without converting. Be sure you aren't pointing a finger at intolerance from a position of your own intolerance (or your religion's).

I'm dating a Baptist and her parents are cool. We're just getting married in either a non-denominational church or outside.

Some hardcore Baptists consider the Catholic Church to be the whore of Babylon in the book of Rev.

Its not just the Baptists, the Pentecostals hate us with a hardcore vengence, as well.
