    probably because it has the most followers of any christian faith yet it is so far from being accurate it's kind of funny.

      If it is the least accurate, why is believing in Catholicism so funny. Have you ever been to a Catholic service. The first time will be confusing. Just listen. You might learn something.

    I don't know but it gets irritating. The question asked right before this one had to do with Korean faith. Why is everyone so focused on religion is my question. They are just beliefs.

    There is a saying that you cannot fool all the people all the time. However Catholic faith is the only faith which has managed to get close to it by fooling most of the followers most of the time.

      I would like to know how you reached that conclusion and the scientific research you used. Or, is it something that you "just know."

    Catholics are singled out because it is the most identifiable church. The priests wear the white collar and do not marry, women give lives of service as nuns and sisters (there is a difference but at a later date). Catholics attend Mass and not church. Catholics believe that the consecration of the wine and bread at Mass does turn it into the body and blood of Christ--a chance we cannot see, but a change we accept on faith. Catholics developed their own school system, that a lot of protestants use. Catholics have built hospitals--some of which are outstanding.

    I was a Baptist. We celebrated the Lord's supper with grape juice and a small wafer--it was symbolic, as prescribed in the Southern Baptist Convention Covenant. 

    Catholic are people who are following a religion that most likely their parents, grandparents and great grand parents followed. If you really studied the Catholic church you would find that it is a beautiful religion. Finally, contrary to popular belief, Catholics do not think they are the only ones going to heaven. My parents, grandparents, older brother were all Baptists and I expect to see them again.

      I am starting to believe that there is some sort sectenarism starting on hub pages.  In the UK we had enough of that here with the 'troubles', I'd hate to see it raise its ugly head elsewhere.

    I think it's true not only here but in general.  The Catholic faith seems to take most of the pot shots leveled at Christianity as a whole.
    It's likely that Catholicism was, and for many is, the central or root notion of Christianity.  For those not christian it is sort of the symbol of the Christian church.  For Protestants it is what they are 'different' from, to whatever degree.  Most often, when atheists defend their position, it is in the context of Catholicism, instead of whether or not God exists, or really any other faith.
    It is undeniable that the Catholic Church has done a great deal both good and evil throughout the last ten or fifteen centuries. Taken as a whole, in the context of history, it probably did more good than harm. 
    Catholicism is best known and therefore most easily resisted, loved, hated, defended, and railed against. It's just a fact of life.
