*Shrugs* I always assumed it was just another 'branch' of the generic Christianity religion. Seems some others think different. My mother is a RC, being of Maltese/Italian background, seems to think so. Imo, even as someone who isn't of any faith, I agree with her. Surely if you believe that CHRIST was the son of god, you are, by definition, a CHRISTian..? Thererfore, Catholics are Christian... Or have I missed something?
