Commented Hi Piet,
Thanks for your thoughts.
This so-called creed has been represented as a document of Contantine. It is, in that context, a fraud. It is, as you acknowledge, a misquote of a document that has nothing to do with Constantine, just as I documented.
As to your distinction between "Catholicism" and "Christianity", whatever you mean by those terms, it is anachronistic at best, and pure fiction at worst. At the time this creed was written there were one or more Christian church traditions (Eastern and Greek, for example), each potentially calling themselves "catholic" in the sense of being universal. In any case, whatever you think you mean by your use of those terms doesn't have any bearing on this creed, where it came from, and what it achieved.
You are entitled to your own view about who is and who isn't a "true believer", but this article deals with historical and evidentiary facts, as best they can be known. It has nothing to say about Judaism being better or worse than any other faith. Any hysteria you find here has been brought by the reader. Try reading it again.
May God bless your evident passion for all that is His.
