comment Refuting false claim about The Catholic Church in the Medieval Ages
@curiousdannii and Geremia - Please avoid discussion in comments. Comments are not an acceptable medium for debate. Also, some of the comments here could be turned into the more focused, specific questions I suggested, so you can get the specific claim as well as the apologetic answer to it, all while earning rep and behaving constructively.

comment Refuting false claim about The Catholic Church in the Medieval Ages
This seems a bit broad for this particular venue. The only short answer is to get specific charges, not sweeping generic ones like the one listed, and then refute those. Start with "Give me specific examples of how the Church suppressed knowledge". Otherwise there's no reason to bother refuting the claim. If the attacker can't produce the basis for the claim, then it's simply a baseless claim that should be ignored. To try to address a baseless claim gives it credibility. Demand specifics that can be proved or disproved, and refute the specifics.

comment What is considered chaste behaviour from a Catholic perspective?
I think the part that can be read as offensive is " The Catholic position seems to be that sex is to be between married couples, to avoid contraception and to ensure that male orgasm occurs inside his wife's vagina." That's a gross mis-characterization of the stance of the Church or the reasoning behind it. It's off enough to be easily read as sarcastic statements about their teachings. This would be better if it were simpler. "Does the Catholic Church teach that only intercourse is pre-marital activity, or does it include foreplay? If the latter, where's the line?"

comment Why is vengeance for the Lord?
@HelpingHand and The Freemason, please refrain from discussions in comments. If you need to converse, take it to Christianity Chat. I've deleted the off-topic comments and left the ones that are actually relevant to the question.

comment Christians are doomed to hell?
@FMS - I think the answer is "No it's not supported", with an addendum last half of the last sentence agreeing that it's odd that an unsupported perception is posted on the site.

comment How do Protestants understand major differences in doctrine between denominations?
This answer would be a lot better if you could add references showing that this is a common understanding, and who teaches/believes it. On this site, we're not looking for personal interpretation or opinions, but rather focusing on what various Christian groups teach. See How we are different than other sites? and What makes a good supported answer?

comment Where did the Roman Catholic denomination in India originate, and why are there differences amongst Indian Christians?
I think he means denominations. I also think that's been asked already, but I'm on my phone and that's too limited to search.

Yes, I know Genesis is the source. That's why I knew it's accurate. I'm familiar with the passages, but not everyone is. Please take this next as me trying to be helpful, not snarky. Take a look around the site. Good answers include the relevant verses in the answer, so that others don't need to go look it up and wonder "where did they get that from?". This is where your answer comes up short of site standards. See also, What makes a good supported answer?

I want to vote this up as accurate, but you've cited no references. Please add them.
