'Catholicism was the only sect of Christianity from the time of Paul to the time of the Protestant Revolution.' - Hello? What about the Greek Orthodox?
- And the Gnostics. The Copts. - Suricou

It's not just Protestants who use catholic in that sense. Kolbe 04:39, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
I'd like to have a source citation for the statement that
- many feel that Catholics practice idolatry and a form of polytheism by praying to statues of saints. (Catholics respond by saying praying to saints is not the same as worshiping them.)
Pending such a citation, I've removed it for discussion here.
Who, exactly, are these "many" people? The reader is entitled to know who is saying this and exactly what it is that they are saying. No doubt there are some people who believe this, but it shouldn't go into the article as a vague, unsourced assertion. One might just as well say that "some people believe that Bible literalists practice idolatry." Or that "some people believe that Jews [insert anti-Semitic canard here]."

Redirected to Catholicism
I've made this a redirect to Catholicism because it is essentially the same topic, and because virtually everything in this short article is already in the longer and better article on Catholicism. Dpbsmith 13:52, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
