Re: Who Is? It Is The GOP
Let's narrow our definitions. We have several to feed into the Diffen Comparison Generator.
Conservative vs Marxism
Catholicism vs Christianity
Diffen:
Catholicism is the largest denomination of Christianity. All Catholics are Christians, but not all Christians are Catholics. A Christian refers to a follower of Jesus Christ who may be a Catholic, Protestant, Gnostic, Mormon, Evangelical, Anglican or Orthodox, or follower of another branch of the religion.
A Catholic is a Christian who follows the Catholic religion as transmitted through the succession of Popes. The Pope is the leader of the Catholic church. The Catholic church is the largest of the Christian churches - about 60% of Christians are Catholic.

I don't really sit well with that definition as Diffen lumps Gnostics and Mormons in with us decent people! jar would patiently explain that in the group known as Christianity there are many many clubs. We will just have to all agree to disagree.
More from Diffen:
Catholic vs Protestant
Mormonism vs Christianity
Diffen:
Mormons consider themselves to be Christians but Mormonism has historically had an uneasy relationship with traditional Christianity and its branches such as the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church, and most branches of Protestantism. This is primarily due to the fact that adherents to Mormonism claim that the movement is a "restoration" of the earliest Christian and Judaic doctrines. Mormonism is considered to have branched from Christianity but differs in certain beliefs.
According to the Latter Day Saints (Mormons), Mormonism and Christianity are identical; Mormonism restores and perfects Christianity. However, traditional Christianity regards Mormonism as a departure from Christianity, or a corruption of it.

Which I agree with. We can toss out those darn Gnostics too!
Christianity vs Gnosticism
Diffen:
Gnosticism describes a collection of ancient religions whose adherents shunned the material world - which they viewed as created by the demiurge - and embraced the spiritual world.
GIA would be better off dropping all religion rather than clinging to that one! The demons play around with people's minds there.
And of course, the progressives would argue that we should simply throw out the whole kit & kaboodle of religions and become secularists. Mike Huckabee and his daughter would not be amused.
As for Trump, keep in mind that there was once a prophecy about him from a 100% authentic prophet.

I wonder if we threw holy water on you you would start screaming and legions of demons would exit through your forehead?

Silly rabbit! If you can see the god it proves he is fake! If you can build a statue of Him=FAKE
Thats the whole purpose, meaning, and explanation for the Holy Spirit.
All we are really dealing with for the past 2023 years are ethers. And there are basically two flows.
1) The Holy Spirit (aka Holy Ghost)
2) The Imitators. The wannabe gods. The lies that humans can be gods. (or god.)

Prove It! Show me data, evidence,or integrity
You are so skeptical, but then again that's what makes you a good critical thinker.
Years from now, whenever I think of EvC I will always remember you as the
Prove It© Guy.

Rabbit trails
Now wait a minute...are you suggesting that Gnosticism is a...how do you put it? A Pedo-Cult?I would guess that pedophiles are statistically the same in all groups, atheists included. Its a severe mental disorder. It has nothing to do with religion except for the fact that the RCC tried to make the problem go away by transferring Priests to other diocese...or at least they used to. The priests cant get married and once you violate your vow of celibacy, the young altar boys look "enticing" next to the nuns all covered up like an Islamic woman! (I wonder what the rates are for pedophilia in Muslim Countries? Of course nowadays, with modern porn, an image of your choice can be created virtually out of thin air. Idolatry was forbidden for a reason.
In Sarah Huckabee Sanders world, such problems officially are rare among Christians, though I would argue that Christians-at-large sin as much as the general population (who doesn't count sin against themselves) jar used to always suggest that Christians would be judged more harshly than non-Christians because they had read the manual and were guilty through knowledge. Which brings up an interesting question. Does being judged equate to being sentenced?
