The Patrick Madrid Show: November 17, 2023 – Hour 2

We start off with a call from Jim in San Antonio who disagrees with Patrick’s characterization of non-Catholic Christians. Jim, a lifelong Christian and member of the Methodist Church, shares his personal experiences with different Christian denominations and emphasizes that he has never encountered non-Catholic Christians who do not view Catholics as fellow Christians. Patrick discusses his own experiences and interactions with Protestant groups, particularly Baptists, who sometimes hold negative views towards Catholics. He highlights the importance of fostering understanding and unity among believers.

  • Jim – I have been a lifelong member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes. We don’t try to convert Catholics and we do recognize Catholics as Christians.
