Am I the only one who feels like I can’t get along with a general Christian populace because of my denomination?

OMG Yes!!!!! I grew up Catholic too and I went to a non-Catholic but Christian college for a year before transferring to a Catholic University. I transferred for many reasons, I didn’t like the program, and their religion class was really let’s bash Catholics for several hours. And their chaplin didn’t think that Catholics should be considered Christians, which I don’t understand at all.
I have many non-Catholic Christian friends who respect my religion but I’ve met a lot of people who don’t. There was this one girl on my floor who constantly bashed Catholics in class and outside of class. Then she discovered I’m a Catholic, it was really awkward.

Yikes, the CHAPLIN? I’m so sorry, bleghhh. I’m pretty set to go to a non-religious university (scholarships + programs, all that deal) but Man does that sound TERRIBLE.

Right. We worship the same Jesus Christ. Which is the basic definition of Christian.

Exactly! We have some differing traditions and interpretations but I’ve never got how on earth that invalidates the fact that a Christian is someone who worships Christ, and in doing that, Catholics can’t be less Christian than others.

I’m protestant, but I believe that Catholics can be Christian, too! After all, most Christians before the reformation were Catholic, but were obviously followers of Christ. I think a lot of Catholic traditions are beautiful, and not to sound stereotypical, but ever since hearing about Joan of Arc and other saints from the Middle Ages when I was 8, I’ve been very interested in Catholicism. Not that I’m not still a protestant, but I’ve learned to appreciate the positive impact that many Catholics have made on our world today!
