Anti-Catholics focus on flaws they think they see in The Only Church Jesus Founded. Anti-Catholics have planks in their eyes.
Jesus spoke plainly about the danger of focusing on the “speck” in a neighbor’s eye while ignoring the plank in our own.
Mt 7:4-6 “How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while there is still a beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! First take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”
Anti-Catholics are great at obsessing about “specks” in the eyes of others!
They endlessly repeat “Catholics worship idols!” They drone on, “How can we trust The Church when it did not fully understand the harm done by a tiny group of sinful men?”
What is “the plank” in their own eye? That “plank”? Nearly all of them support denominations that have failed to condemn abortion and/or abortion-inducing birth control!
The confusion they cause is killing! Billions of unborn boys and girls have lost their lives because 45,000 denominations and groups of “plank-eyed Protestants” have confused Catholic Teaching that “Life must be protected from conception to natural death.”
Anti-Catholics will not let themselves see that the confusion they cause has contributed to those billions of deaths! The “plank in their eye” reflects an awful vanity in their minds. Instead of seeing the evil they will not condemn, they focus on the comparative “specks”. While billions die, they mindlessly chant “Catholics worship idols! The Church did not do enough stop a few thousand abusers!”
They cause more confusion and death. That great evil further distracts from the focus on human life encapsulated in “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Anti-Catholics have planks in their eyes. They do not care. “We are right to focus on little details, even if it does help the killing continue. By the way, I am a good person.”
