Catholics: Have you ever heard a priest or deacon slander other denominations from the pulpit?

Question by Boris (Accept No Substitutes): Catholics: Have you ever heard a priest or deacon slander other denominations from the pulpit?
I never have, yet judging from the questions and answers here, Fundamentalist churches expend a great deal of energy vilifying Catholicism.

Why the difference, do you think? Is the Catholic Church simply more gracious than others? Or does it go deeper?

The Priest, the Woman, and the Confessional by Charles Chiniquy

The Priest, the Woman, and the Confessional by Charles Chiniquy

Welcome to the Still Waters Revival Books video book summary for “The Priest, the Woman, and the Confessional” (c. 1890) by Charles Chiniquy

Chiniquy was one of the most famous Romanist priests to leave the pretended Romish communion and join the Presbyterians.

This book (of 252 pages) contains important original documents establishing the high character and standing of pastor Chiniquy even while he was in the church of Rome. It also demonstrates, on the testimony of a long-time insider, how the harlotries of the Roman whore (Rev. 17-18) defile the body as well as the mind and soul.

This is rarely made more evident than in what is here revealed by the ex-priest Chiniquy. Chiniquy calls the confessional the “modern Sodom,” and shows how auricular confession destroys all the sacred ties of marriage and human society. He also makes the case as to why this devilish monstrosity should not be tolerated among civilized nations.

Boettner, in his book “Roman Catholicism” (pp. 212-213) adds the following,

“Father Charles Chiniquy, after spending 25 years as a Roman Catholic Priest in Canada and the United States, renounced the Roman Church and the priesthood and in the following paragraphs expressed his sense of humiliation and shame at having ever engaged in the process of the confessional.”

“With a blush on my face, and regret in my heart, I confess before God and man, that I have been through the confessional, plunged for 25 years in that bottomless sea of iniquity, in which the blind priests of Rome have to swim day and night. I had to learn by heart the infamous questions which the church of Rome forces every priest to learn. I had to put these impure, immoral questions to women and girls who were confessing their sins to me. Those questions, and the answers they elicit, are so debasing that only a man who has lost every sense of shame can put them to any women. Yes, I was bound in conscience, to put into the ears, the mind, the imagination, the memory, the heart and soul of women and girls, questions of such a nature, the direct and immediate tendency of which is to fill the minds and hearts of both priests and penitents with thoughts of temptations of such a degrading nature, that I do not know any words adequate to express them. Pagan antiquity has never seen any institution more polluting than the confessional. I have lived 25 years in the atmosphere of the confessional. I was degraded and polluted by the confessional just as all the priests of Rome are. It has required the whole blood of the great Victim, who died on Calvary for sinners, to purify me” (pp. 67-68 in “The Priest, Woman, and the Confessional”).

Boettner continues,

“This book by Charles Chiniquy is, we believe, the best available dealing with all phases of the confessional, and should be read by everyone who would have a clear understanding of the evils involved in that institution. It describes conditions which existed in Montreal and in other parts of Canada in the middle nineteenth century, and shows the depths to which the confessional tends if unrestrained by evangelical forces.”

what qualifications is required for me to become a priest in the charismatic episcopal church?

Question by KJ: what qualifications is required for me to become a priest in the charismatic episcopal church?
what does the charimatic episcopal church believe?

Best answer:

Answer by Ollie
The charismatic movement is a movement within the Episcopal Church, which in turn is a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Episcopalians are Christians.

Charismatics are followers of Jesus who place a special emphasis in their worship lives on the charisms — the gifts — of the Holy Spirit described in the early chapters of the Acts of the Apostles and elsewhere in the New Testament. These gifts include many things, such as preaching, teaching, service, hospitality, prophecy, healing, speaking in tongues, and leadership.

You should inquire of your local Episcopal Church’s priest about entering the process to prepare for ordained ministry.

Generally speaking, you need
participation in the “postulant” process under supervision of your local bishop.
a bachelors’ degree
three years in a seminary or divinity school to get an M Div degree
a season working as a chaplain intern in a hospital.
some time working as an intern in a parish.

Blessings on your path!
