Who fucking cares if Christianity is a Pagan religion, or if Luther was just a rebellious Catholic teenager? For that matter, why people believe in Creationism, or whether or not they should, isn't the issue either.
Jesus Christ, you people can't focus for ****.

Some Muslims claim Chrisitianity is Polytheistic 'cos of the Holy Trinity, Saints and the Marian cult. (If you're Catholic.)
But Islam has its own (unannounced) Holy Trinity too: God, the Prophet and the Koran. Don't believe me? Look at the recent cartoon fiasco or the lynching of innocent men in Pakistan for 'burning the Holy Qu'aran'. It also has a hierarchy of angels (which operates like a pantheon of second division gods in most cases) and the crescent was originally a Pagan symbol too. Pot, kettle, black.

See what I mean? That entire post was meaningless. Oh, Islam has a crescent symbol? Holy ****! Wait, it has a Holy Trinity that you made up? **** me!
None of that is relevant.

Consubstantiation is a misnomer and is not true Lutheran theology.
Both Transubstantiation and Consubstantiation were attempts to use Aristotelian philosophy to explain how it is that Christs body was truly present.
Luther rejected any such attempts as unBiblical, using man's reason to explain a miracle of God. Luther, rather, accepted the mystery of the event, only going as far as affirming the Christ body and blood was truly present, in, with, and under, the bread and wine.
Later Lutherans, in an attempt to have a concept to compare with Catholicism, came up with consubstantiation, once again using Form and Substance to explain the mystery.
I can only imagine Luther rolling in his grave at their attempts.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

I figured that was the case (you're no dummy), but it was way to glaring to not poke at.
I can dig it, El, but the cynic in me tends to feel that the Church would still be up to alot of its old tricks if it still had the same international political and economic clout.
Glad to hear they may lighten up on condoms though, and I have alot of respect for the work of Liberation Theologists in S America."You know what I like about you, William? You like guns AND meditation."
