Christians are anyone who believe in Christ
Catholics are just a sect of Christianity who believe saint peter was the first pope and we should follow the pope as a descendant of saint peter.

Catholics aren't "just a sect" of Christianity. It's by far the largest branch of the Christian faith.
Also it is the oldest one, hence "Roman Catholicism", emphasis on "Roman".

Actually catholicism is not a form of christianity. It is like saying that muslims are a branch of the jewish faith. Yes, they are similar but they have very different foundations. For instance the catholic church believes you have to work your way to heaven. The Christian faith believes you may only be saved by faith through grace, it is a gift of God not of works lest any man should boast. This separates the two very convincingly.

It amuses me when non-Christians who hate Roman Catholicism for taking principled stands against abortion or homosexuality smugly lecture believers about what it means to be a "real Christian."     
   
The point of being the pope is not to win popularity contests, but to act as the loyal guardian of the Catholic faith and doctrine, and to serve the world with love.  If Francis can pull that off and make the irreligious youth of the world love him, and maybe give a more respectful hearing to the teachings of the Church, great.  But if they love him because they think he's just Oprah or Ellen DeGeneres with a cooler hat, here to make you feel good about yourself without offending anybody by talking about sin and repentance... that's not a win for the Church, it's a loss.

Er, this is the first pope who said, against the beliefs of most other church officials, that atheists could be good people. Not that they could get into heaven, but that they could be good.

For the same reason you need motivation to do anything, I suppose.

Seriously though, it's not that people require religion to be good and upstanding, it's just something they believe in and add into their daily lives. If people are good, they would be good with or without religion, and if people are bad, they would be bad with or without religion as well.

Because great art has come from religious ideas and been based around stories from the Bible. I think religion has a place in the world as it can still create beautiful things and people. I'm not saying people have to be religious to be good, but someone who is religious AND good should have to give up their God if that's what they believe in.

95% of the world believes in some sort of god(s).
if you ever become addicted to drugs or alcohol and have the privilege to do the 12 steps you will see that even those include giving yourself to some higher power.
its just how we human.

It's not bitching, it's a legitimate question that literally nobody will answer for me. I know almost absolutely nothing about religion.

Well, Look at it this way. Would people still obey the law if they were given a choice to do so? No. Because people are assholes. So they need a moral figure. Someone who is righteous, all knowing, and powerful. and for people to fear him. Like the justice system and law enforcement.. Real or not. God is an idea to keep people in line and to stop people from murdering each other. That's the best way I can explain it to you.

Those are just deities. The worst display of Christianity ive seen in people are west boro but they don't go around decapitating people (that Im aware of). while the best is our current pope.

you don't have to believe in God to go to heaven (if there is one) you just have to be good. Btw God is never stated to be bearded, have any sort of form (though some interpret him as looking like a star[ball of fire]) and he certainly doesn't dwell in the ******* clouds

the only people who hate popes solely because they're catholic are not atheists, they're assholes. and i know this picture's not a jab at atheists as a whole, but it's what i'm inferring from the fact that it's specifically asking atheists

sorry i took this so seriously but i had to let it out. also i'm not even an atheist

You know, usually I'm slightly offended by pope pedophilia/sexuality jokes, because I always get the sense that they're done mean-spiritedly.

But being that everyone actually likes the new pope, I can actually laugh at these jokes because suddenly, that's all they are... jokes.
