"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

Tamimi, Unrepentant for His Unbecoming Attitude!

Remember the very unbecoming attitude of a supposedly respectable men robed in a "holy" clothes two days ago? Sheik Tamimi is one of the most disrespectable representative of Muslims in Palestine and Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and he has disgraced himself by behaving very rudely from the rest of the respectable guests and visitors in Pope Benedict XVI's "peace" initiative to bridge differences. Thanks to JihadWatch for providing us a comprehensive story about this very "unbecoming attitude" of supposedly "a espectable" Muslim man.:
JERUSALEM — A Muslim cleric who commandeered the stage at a meeting with Pope Benedict XVI to rail against Israel's harsh treatment of Palestinians said Tuesday he spoke out because he was representing Islam.

Vatican officials criticized Sheik Taysir Tamimi's five-minute speech Monday evening at what had been billed as an interfaith meeting. It was the first political controversy played out in Benedict's presence on his five-day Holy Land pilgrimage.

Tamimi said organizers had not allotted him speaking time, though he was seated on the stage, and he simply righted a wrong by walking up to the podium to address the pope. A rabbi at the meeting was also not scheduled to speak.

"I wanted to express the suffering of our people and to show the occupation's procedures against the Palestinian people," Tamimi told The Associated Press. "If I represent Islam at a meeting for dialogue and I don't speak, am I just a piece of furniture?" (Read more in Newsvine)
And I guess that's the reason why he was not given a time to address the Pope for that same reason of having a rude attitude, today nor in the future.
