  • I heard one say that the Church long ago began to focus on Mary instead of Jesus

    that we worship the pope, think he can't sin

    that the Church teaches we can work our way to Heaven

    etc..

    I am mostly looking for the really ODD things, though.. (not that those aren't a little odd...)

  • "Priests are really devils and wear cassocks to hide their tails". True story. In a Boston, Massachusetts suburb a non-Catholic mother said this to her young daughter in a store when she was asked why that man was wearing a dress. Mmmmm, maybe she had the goods on to the Jesuits before most of us Catholics!

  • There is no such thing as a Protestant religion. Each Protestant is a church of one, believing what he wants to believe.

  • That we are vampires for drinking Christ's blood  ::)

    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

  • There are some people who believe that there are tunnels under the convents that lead to the rectories where the nuns and the priests have orgies.

    I think this one is so widespread because it was in a Jack Chick comic.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chick_tract

    Quote
    Chick tracts are short evangelical gospel tracts, originally created and published by American publisher and religious cartoonist Jack Chick. Since his death, his company (Chick Publications) has continued to print new tracts using other authors working for the company.
    Although many of Chick's tracts express views that are generally accepted within Christian theology, several tracts have expressed controversial viewpoints. Most notably, Chick tracts were known for expressing strongly anti-Catholic views, as well as his criticisms of other religions including Mormonism.
    The section on anti-Catholicism:
    Quote
    However, of all the major religious groups, no one group has been the subject of more of Chick's tracts and other writings than Catholicism.No fewer than 20 Chick tracts have Catholicism as their subject or as a major theme, including Are Roman Catholics Christians?[17] (arguing that they are not), The Death Cookie[18] (a polemic against the Catholic Eucharist), and Why is Mary Crying?[19] (arguing that Mary does not support the veneration Catholicism gives her).[20]

    Chick also expounded his anti-Catholic views in several comics and other books. Most notably, he defended the controversial Alberto Rivera in at least one book[21][22] and in an entire series of six full-length comics.[23] Chick also asserted that the Catholic Church, in a grand conspiracy, created IslamCommunismNazism, and Freemasonry.[24]

    In The New Anti-Catholicism,[25] religious historian Philip Jenkins describes Chick tracts as promulgating "bizarre allegations of Catholic conspiracy and sexual hypocrisy" to perpetuate "anti-papal and anti-Catholic mythologies". Michael Ian Borer, a sociology professor of Furman University at the time, described Chick's strong anti-Catholic themes in a 2007 American Sociological Association presentation[26] and in a peer reviewed article the next year in Religion and American Culture.[27]

    Catholic Answers web published a response to the claims of Chick Publications against Roman Catholics and a criticism of Chick Tracts in general called The Nightmare World of Jack T. Chick,[28] detailing the inaccuracies, factual errors, and how a "typical tactic in Chick tracts is to portray Catholics as being unpleasant or revolting in various ways".

    Most sweet Jesus, whose overflowing charity for men is requited by so much forgetfulness, negligence and contempt, behold us prostrate before you, eager to repair by a special act of homage the cruel indifference and injuries to which your loving Heart is

  • When I was being raised Baptist (lol) I distinctly remember being told (among all the other garbage that Prots think) that you can always tell who a Catholic is because they all have little statues of the Blessed Virgin on their dashboard. 

    When I converted, I was given a crucifix and my sister said to me, “Oh, you have that so now you can bow down and worship it?”

    I also once saw someone online who said that Catholics are flashy and Protestants are plain, and that we pray to a priest, who prays to a bishop who prays to the Pope who prays to God. I didn’t realize I was doing it wrong the whole time!!! 

    All I’m saying is ... don’t drink the Kool-Aid that these Prots drink!

  • There are some people who believe that there are tunnels under the convents that lead to the rectories where the nuns and the priests have orgies.
    This came from a nun in the 1800's in Montreal Canada who ran away from her convent and went to the U.S. and wrote a book about not only the tunnels but about babies born to the nuns etc.  The book was called "Maria Monk".  She gave accounts but always stopped short of disclosing explicit details and what was said in the confessional etc.
    Obviously the book was banned but copies are still available. Unfortunately someone got a copy and re-wrote it filling in scandalous erotic details.
    She wrote it as an expose not fiction, so naturally the protestants believed her.
    The tunnels have been found but who knows what they were used for.

  • Amazing.  I've heard each and every one of these at one time or another.

    Of course, I still remember being told that the pope is the "whore of Babylon" from the book of Revelations.

    For anyone who wants to find out how this works, I recommend working for an electrician or a plumber so you can crawl around in the air plenum ceiling above the offices where Scientologists or other such Protestants work. 
    .
    The things they say when they think no one is listening are very informative.
    .
    They compete with each other with "I-can-top-this" stories about what Catholics do and believe.

  • Some people believe that the Knights of Columbus are storing guns in their halls so that one day they will ride into the state capitol to take over in a coup d'etat.

  • How about this one?  The word "Hocus Pocus" comes from the Consecration of the Mass:  "Hoc est...Corpus meam."  Seriously.  What my in-laws told my husband before his conversion. 

    Or that Judas is in Heaven, because without him there would have been no crucifixion, hence he participated in a positive way in our Redemption.  Although that one isn't strictly about the Catholic Church.
