Berean Beacon froze my computer.

I read the Hard Questions to Ask Good Catholics article on Pro-Gospel. Ignoring the flaws in reasoning and facts, the article is incredibly propagandist.

For example, take the form of several questions: “Did you know [insert Protestant belief here]?” The question is deliberately phrased to elicit a yes or no response that automatically affirms what the speaker says. The recipient is left with no choice but to express implicit agreement or explicit ignorance. Interestingly enough, the same tactic is taught to JWs in initiating dialogue. “Did you know the Bible teaches Jesus is not God?” If you say yes, you admit to heresy. If you say no, you admit to ignorance while still affirming heresy.
