I can see a lot of appealing things in the Catholic Church, but the theology is a deal-breaker for me. I'll stay where I'm at, thanks.
Our theology is really quite simple: "Believe as the Apostles did." Add nothing, and take nothing away.

Anything else is man-made tradition, being preached as God's Law.
And you're the only one who can authoritively state what the Apostles believed. How convenient.
Nobody listens to the guy in the cargo shorts playing the keys.

Ahhh, now that politics are verboten we can finally refocus our attention to the neglected art of theological mudslinging :chili:
Inadvertently emboldening the cause of naïve Evolutionism since 2016.

Before jumping straight into Catholicism, the next logical step from Anglicanism is Wesleyanism. Just saying.
