Paul was not one of the Twelve Apostles. He was a later convert and disciple.

mmcfetr: You're confused. The story doesn't say he was one of the original 12. You're confusing disciple and apostle. He wasn't one of the original disciples, but he was an early apostle. That is why he is referred to as Paul the Apostle.

Ignore the whole of sacred Scripture but "venerate" (aka worship) objects and idols.

Take an ordinary object and bury it in the desert for a thousand years, spin a fable about it, and it takes on a mythical quality that people will fight wars over. Sometimes a boulder is just a boulder.

I would like to thank the Catholic Church for making it easy for me to become an Atheist. Without the ridiculousness of your traditions and ideology, I may have not have become skeptical enough to stop believing in God altogether. Remember, squating monkeys tell no lies.
