comment What are the Church fathers' arguments that Peter is the rock?
I'm not arguing against documentary dependence. I'm arguing that it does not follow from documentary dependence that Matthew just made the rest of his text up as you imply. Also I don't find it helpful to be patronized as if I was unaware of the issues surrounding the synoptic problem; I commented on this post because I believe your representation of the state of affairs to be factually inaccurate —better in the recent edit since it's at least apparent where you're drawing from but still inaccurate— in the way you paint a one sided big picture that is a non-sequitur from your premises.

comment What are the Church fathers' arguments that Peter is the rock?
Besides @FMS's salient comment about their relevance (this is a question about what arguments the church fathers used, not your conclusions about the source material they may have started with), but the statement itself is misleading. While many scholars do see Mark as a source for some of the material it is not true that "nearly all believe much of it to be copied", and even less true is the implication that nearly all scholars don't believe Matthew's gospel represents a historical account. Your personal favorite scholars may think that but such sweeping statements are unjustified.

comment According to Catholic doctrine, do our fallen, finite nature and our relationship with God set us up for abusive relationships in this life?
@JonBannon Thanks for the feedback. As curiousdannii mentioned one of the main features of this site's guidelines is that we actively try to avoid oblique questions prefering to go straight for the "What does X believe about Y" format. We find this produces much more constructive answers that can be sorted effectively by the SE vote format without starting WWIII. Feel free to tweak what the community has edited to better represent your a actual question, but do keep in mind how this format works. Also maybe you can merge accounts?

comment What is the origin of the idea that the baby Jesus did not cry?
@BearinaStudebaker Check out the title before edits. I'm sure that's why it got "Truth question" close votes. And rightly so. Flimzy's edited version looks alright to me.
