I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

comment Is the Roman Catholic church condemning Protestants?
As far as I know 'anathema' means you are condemned by God and has nothing to do with persecution and forcing one's religion on another person. So I am confused you accepted an answer that has nothing to do with your question. Maybe there is a misunderstanding on the word anathema and that if you are actually asking about persecution, like the Spanish Inquisition, which seems the accepted answer does address. Anyway...just saying the higher voted answers seems to be answering correctly what most people think your question is. I am confused ....so thought I would just give you a heads up.

comment Why did Jesus keep some in the dark by using parables?
Hi welcome to the site. I recommend reading the FAQ is you have not yet. To keep these stackexchange sites from becoming just more internet slop, there are some useful disciplines that are followed and for a newcomer it often a small learning curve. I think you had a couple thoughtful observations ;)

comment Does any version of the Anglican church associate 'confirmation' with the Baptism of the Holy Ghost?
so are you saying it is common in the Anglican church to say until a person is 'confirmed' they have not been Baptized in the Spirit (which is what this author really meant). Of course the author assumes they have the Spirit. ....also do you have any quote. By the way...I ask as I have never encountered this idea until now and actually attend and teach in a Reformed Anglican church myself for the last several years. Nobody in my Anglican church would ever imagine this but I thought maybe it was a common belief in the high-church
