Opinion Poll - July 2009

According to the Catechism (para 424), the Rock upon which the church is built is:

  • St Peter as Pope 60 (53%)
  • The Faith confessed by Peter 52 (46%)
Total votes: 112. Poll closed.

Comment

The result of this poll is a sad commentary on our laziness to check things out for ourselves. Our bias will not let us see the plain facts. (I'm sure that Catholics do not have a monopoly on this 'virtue'!) All it takes is one minute to look up the Catechism (it's online for those who don't have a hard copy), and read the paragraph in plain English.
