About your last paragraph, in the eyes of the Catholic church, is there a difference between a Protestant who remains "on the fence" regarding Marian dogmas & Papal infallibility than a Protestant who actively denounce them as "heresy"? — GratefulDisciple Aug 17, 2023 at 14:37
@GratefulDisciple it’s an old post but in my experience “on the fence” is not a neutral position or really a position at all. You can a) act as though the doctrine is true yet still be unsure if its justifiable or true or b) act as though the doctrine is untrue yet still be unsure if it is unjustifiable or true. If you are in b you are rejecting the teachings of the church and thus in schism from her doctrines. — Luke Hill 12 hours ago

I suppose I should clarify "on the fence" in my part as someone who act as though the doctrine is untrue but is still unsure whether he is right. Versus someone who act as though the doctrine is untrue and is sure that the doctrine is false.
You're saying that both count as "in schism", which I don't dispute. But is there another distinction that the Catholic Church offers? Maybe culpable vs. ignorant?

Q: I notice the book 1 Maccabees isn't part of the Jewish canon even though the basis for Hanukkah is

BCLCAfaik Hanukkah is about something called Maccabean Revolt and then 1 Maccabees is deuterocanonical in Catholicism & some Orthodox churches but not in Jewish canon. But like ... Christmas is really about events in the Brit Had Asha. Christians aren't looking up other sources as the basis for Chris...
