I have to break it to him that the Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Birth are two different things: it was Mary who, according to a Vatican dogma dating back only to 1854, was immaculately conceived. I run into this kind of thing all the time: what else do people imagine they are believing? And hasn’t it come to something when I have to tell Catholics what their church teaches?

    haha ottmar you have a point there, maybe because Catholicism is such a dynamic religion, it has changed in many ways and remained the same in others, ‘belief’ sounds solid, but it is always changing, take a look at the the dogma of the church, it has changed fundamentally from pre-constantine europe to post-reformation europe…..people believe that their ideological systems are the same, but one doesnt have to look far within a religion to see that much of belief is preference
