That was cute, Mark.

If you do not see the difference between Catholicism and Gnosticism, how can you dismiss the Cathars? The Cathars were Dualists, believing that they were pure spirits trapped in an Evil God's world (the Evil god is... [according to the Cathars] - Jehovah - the god who pretends to be human, an angry and vengeful god...) The Cathars believed they were pure souls (parts of the good god, true christians) and thus, they walked smiling into the pyres that the Catholic priests built for them.

You are confusing, or fudging the issue here, in my opinion.

If you cannot see the difference, how can you comment?
