"Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world."
"But as for those my enemies, who would not have me reign over them, bring them hither, and kill them before me."
"And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven. "

You can hardly study about creationism from Prots without them getting in a logically fallacious dig against the Catholic Church, let alone entertain their heretial denial of Catholic dogmas, such as the primacy and infallibility of the papal office. I mean come on, some of them even lie to support creationism!
