I allowed myself to become upset after reading the Council of Trent and Vatican I. You can see the tone change in my post from the beginning to the end. Emotional arguments are not a hallmark of my style, but I trod there despite that.
The heresy of the Catholic church is its position that the ecclesiatical leadership of the church is final and infallible in its decisions, even if they are contradictory to scripture and the tradition of the Ante-Nicene fathers. That is honestly the only position that is heretical, simply because it is the impetus for all of the other points of contention - purgatory, baptismal regeneration, prayer to saints, indulgences, penance, etc., all of which must rely upon the infallibility and final authority of ecclesiastical support. It trumps any debate about the issue at hand, and makes debate impossible. I doubt anyone that reads this blog would defend that position, so I suppose we can't debate the infallibility of the church here.
Team Hammer is not anti-Catholic. After all, how could we stand against the source of the greatest football program on God's green earth? We get a free pass anyway, as family members of Catholics - well, a free pass to purgatory, at least.
