Roman Catholic Anathemas Exist For People Who Reject The Perpetual Virginity Of Mary

  • Discussion:
           -A bizarre dogma of Roman Catholicism is the perpetual virginity of Mary. One would think think that this doctrine was nonessential, yet the Church of Rome anathematizes (meaning curses or condemns) everybody who dares to disagree:

           "If any one saith, that the marriage state is to be placed above the state of virginity, or of celibacy, and that it is not better and more blessed to remain in virginity, or in celibacy, than to be united in matrimony; let him be anathema.” (Council of Trent, Session 24, Canon 10)

           This legalistic nonsense only proves that Mary is worshiped in the Roman Catholic Church. It would not make any theological difference whether one believes Mary remained a virgin throughout her entire life or not. On the other hand, Scripture reserves an "anathema" for anybody who dares to preach a false gospel (Galatians 1:8-9).

  1. The RCC proclaims anathema for lots of things anti-Catholics expose as false!
