Welcome Aquinas, yes this is a quiet forum.
As for your question I don't think so. Though I'm sure there are catholics on here.

What Roman Catholicism is concerned, you are definitely right. People who frequent these boards tend to be more interested in esoteric topics, and/or a rather critical view on established religions.

i know a story about catholics... its true but i might [censored] up some details....
Long ago an avatar(incarnation of God) was born to a jewish household, he went by the name of Jesus of nazerethe.. Now there are many storys from Asia telling us that during Jesus' teen years he traveled to Egypt and trained with priests, then through Syria to Tibet and India were Jesus (or Yeshua as he was called in Asia) is said to train with Buddhist monks, but most likely came across the Hindu Bhakti movement(devotional Hinduism).
when he came back he accepted teachings from John the Baptist, who initiated Jesus. Now baptized as a holy man Jesus goes off becomes enlightened when he defeats the Devil(ego) while walking the forty days in the desert....
Jesus Had 12 disciples but only four were Jewish as apposed to common belief, the rest were pagans.... however Jesus being raised Jewish still spoke of the old testament...

the pagans thought that Jesus was a god, so they named him Jesus the Christ, Christo being a roman name for god meaning anointed one. These pagan Christians were the Gnostic. Gnosticism differs from "official" Christianity in two important respects: 1) Gnostics believed the material world was created as evil and corrupted, and 2) Jesus was a spirit, not actual flesh. Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit in both Gnosticism and Christianity, but in Gnosticism the Holy Spirit was the "feminine" or female aspect of God. Thus the Holy Spirit was the true "mother" of Jesus.

The Gnostics and the Jewish Christians (who simply thought Jesus was the Messiah) got along fine and nothing went wrong, along with Christians were many middle eastern faiths such as Zoroastrianism. There was a wide range of beliefs...
the third group was the “literalists” who were lead by Peter who was pissed that Jesus wanted his wife Mary Magdalena(another box of worms) to lead the church....


Many people were converting so Emperor Constitine converted to Peter's religion the “Catholics”
Later the counsel of Nicea was held they listed over a hundred heresies. And so with the newly formed catholic church they crushed the remaining sects in a series of genocidal witch-hunts...

there by making it so the only available teaching were filtered by pissy pope peter and the Roman empire...
I think its safe to say that Catholics (and it;s modern offshoots) undermines everything the divine Christ taught which is peace, love, & devotion...

a Faith for the Aquarian age. the time is to understand that mighty God is in living man....
