Well just because there are more Catholics in church, does not mean the Catholic dogma on this matter is the default Christian dogma
I didn't discuss defaults. You presented a position argued by some Christians as the typical Chrisitan position. It isn't. The actual situation is
Christian diversity, contrary to your claim.
Since the Christian you were addressing most directly is Catholic, your confidence in what "seems to be" shows that your experience with a particular
kind of argument impeded you from seeing his position as he presented it, regardless of what was actually being said to you.
As they should, but if you've heard that question being directed towards atheists you know exactly what I'm getting at....
Well, you know, it's a funny thing. I'm an agnostic, and I make no secret that I don't believe in any God (as agnostics typically do not believe).
Rarely has any Christian asked me where I get my morals when my disbelief in God comes up, although I debate moral questions regularly online and IRL,
and do that with people of all kinds of religious opinion, including fundamentalist Christians.
If we're trading anecdotes, then that's mine. So, if you think I'm going to know exactly what you're talking about, all I can say is that I don't know
it from my experience. Then again, maybe agnostics approach believers differently than atheists do, or maybe it's more personal than that, maybe a
matter of style or demeanor.
I'm not denying your experience, but I am saying that I don't share it.
