Please note that each of my theological arguments on any topic stands on its own merits. Sometimes I express a theological opinion on a matter of pious disagreement among faithful Catholics. Other times I express, in my own way, the true teachings of Tradition, Scripture, Magisterium. The faithful are free to disagree with my theological opinions, but they are not free to disagree with the teachings of the Magisterium.

{23:2} You shall not follow the crowd in doing evil. Neither shall you go astray in judgment, by agreeing with the majority opinion, apart from the truth.

{6:22} Blessed shall you be when men will have hated you, and when they will have separated you and reproached you, and thrown out your name as if evil, because of the Son of man.
{6:23} Be glad in that day and exult. For behold, your reward is great in heaven. For these same things their fathers did to the prophets.
{6:26} Woe to you when men will have blessed you. For these same things their fathers did to the false prophets.
