I'm a life-long Catholic and have always attended what is now referred to as the extraordinary rite of Mass (also called "Traditional Latin Mass" or "1962 Liturgy"). I don't speak Latin but can read it (though I'm a bit rusty, especially with the vocabulary which isn't common in the liturgy). After becoming lukewarm-to-cold in the practice of my Faith I had a re-awakening since my late 20s and have learned much more in the last ten years than in my first twenty.

I'm also a computer programmer and created the website www.AudioSancto.org in order to disseminate the very excellent sermons of a handful of priests.

comment Is it fair to say that Baptists have a liturgy?
Btw, "Liturgy" doesn't imply something Sacramental in the Catholic Church. For example: all religious are required to pray the Divine Office (Liturgy of the Hours) which are the official prayers of the Church. There are no sacraments performed during these prayers but it's more properly a "liturgy" (public duty) than Mass as a priest is REQUIRED to say the Divine Office daily but he's NOT required to say Mass.

comment Is it fair to say that Baptists have a liturgy?
But based on the etymological meaning of 'liturgy' as long as what Baptists do is what they consider to be their public duty with regard to God then that fits the definition of liturgy. In fact, the OP even lists the things that Baptists have/do in their services.

comment What evidence do we have today about Christian groups not represented at the first four ecumenical councils?
Yes. I don't have the exact citations handy but they are recorded in the writings of Cornelius a Lapide. In the sermon I linked above the priest reads a lot of sections of the writings I'm generally citing here.

comment Godparents in Protestantism
I didn't mean to imply that Godparents' role is null while the natural parents are alive. I pray every day for my Godchildren and my wife and I try to make a point of sending them something 'religiously educational' on their birthdays.

comment Was the Cold War a “rumor of a war?”
Without access to a good Latin-English reference I would have to go on context and 'linguistic smell' and say "opinion" or "estimation." The first Latin-English dictionary I found online translates 'rumor' to 'fama' or 'opinio.' While the Romans had fine distinctions for degrees and types of 'kinetic military activity' I don't know that they were so precise with news/opinion/rumor -- this wasn't much covered when I read Caesar's Gallic Wars in high school :-) -- so it's possible that 'opiniones' is accurately rendered as 'rumors.'

comment Is the OT unveiled in the entire NT or just the Gospels?
Christ is constantly making reference to the books of Moses and the prophecies pointing out that He is the fulfillment of everything toward which the Old Testament was pointing. The Epistles, especially those of St. Paul (who, as a Pharisee, knew the Scriptures very well) also constantly makes reference to the Old Testament, as though to remind the Jews of the prophecies and how they are fulfilled in Christ.
