Difference between Catholic, Protestant, Orthodoxy mindset?

Postby ph » Sat Nov 16, 2013 3:24 am

I've been curious about the diff between these two religious branches and how the mindset works between "Protestant", Catholic and Orthodoxy (even tho both are of Christianity).

Anyone have an idea in layman terms, what is the difference between these three? How do their culture and mentality differ? (I know protestant is about work ethics....)

This is similar to how Dave (aka ladislav) compared the Hindu Malay mind: http://truthfulinsights.blogspot.ca/201 ... -mind.html

Both Catholicism and most Protestant sects are essentially political correctness as a religion and don't take their own supposed doctrinal points too seriously anymore, so no difference there. The main difference is that Catholics are more united under the control of their faggot/pedo priests and therefore are easier to use as a force for political change by the elite. They seem to be motivated by impressing their perverted priests and getting a pat on the back. Also, in Anglo countries they often regard themselves as separate from mainstream society. They therefore don't have as much of a problem with doing things that harm society, as they don't regard it as being their society. Irish Catholics were in fact the first wave of affirmative action scumbags brought in by the PTB to undermine mainstream society.

1) Catholics- into friendship/marriage/family. At the same time too much guilt and helplessness in face of destiny. Not into making money. Prayers rarely answered. More tolerance in terms of race.
2) Protestants: work, work, work. At the same time, disregard family/friendship for work/money/business. Prayers often answered and used in daily life. Very pedantic and intolerant.
3) Same as Catholic- into family/friendship. Intellectual and into philosophy. But prayers are almost never answered and the whole religion is filled with darkness and helplessness. Even more so than Catholic.

While the "Protestant work ethic" is famous, it's actually (according to Weber, who coined the term), the outgrowth of a Calvinism that holds there's nothing you can do to be saved, because it's preordained. Nevertheless, people work hard (according to Weber) because they want to show through outward signs -- a big house, barn full of hay, etc. -- that they are among the elect.

But doctrinally, one of the main differences between Protestantism and Catholicism is that the former has always held that faith alone is sufficient to be saved and works have nothing to do with it, whereas Catholics believe that faith and good works are necessarily conjoined, and you can't have one without the other.

Then there's the Southern Baptists. Among the most narrow-minded, prejudiced, racist, overzealous and holier-than-thou hypocrites I've ever ran across.
