Of course, they're ALL CHRISTIAN churches, run and operated by CHRISTIANS, so we can simply total them up and point to the travesty of an institution which claims moral high ground while its clergy are running round fucking children.

I totally expect bad behavior, illegal behavior, and sexual abuse within the Catholic Church AND the Protestant Churches.

These are RELIGIOUS organizations who prop themselves up at the cost of those members who attend regularly on Sundays but are not necessarily BORN AGAIN Christians.

A true Christian is Born again; there is no other. This is why Jesus said in the Bible: "I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” Jesus NEVER said you must be a member of a church, or Catholic or Protestant but Born again.

Further, Jesus said you will know a born again Christian, not by his membership in a Catholic or Protestant church but by his ACTIONS (fruit): Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." From Luke 6:43–45 (KJV): "For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit.

The same principle would apply to a friend. You will know your friends by their 'fruit', not be them calling themselves your friend. Why is this principle so difficult for you to understand?
