    Speaking in tongues is a form of trance induction.

    All religions use trance to put the critical mind to sleep, to make us suggestible, and then introduce their particular beliefs.

    Yea.. I really don't think you know what you're talking aout. I never needed to speak in tounges to believe anything. Most people speak in tounges after they believe not before. Also I've left the church for a number of years and claimed to be agnostic after speaking. If tounges are a trance that lead to belife then I don't see how any of the above would be possible. I really don't find you at all credible on the topic.You don't know enough about my doctrine to comment.

    I was raised Catholic and never heard of "Pentacostal Catholics". We did have groups within parishes who were called "Charismatic", and celebrated Mass in a much more emotional and spontaneous way than the rest of the parish. Not sure if that trend has persisted.

    So today pentecostal catholics speak in tongues and their services are more emotional than others.

    You need to re-read 1 Corinthians about earnestly desiring the higher gifts.

    Ahh I see. So much more to do with the overal type of services not their doctrine as @Mole would lead me to believe?

    Yes, the groups I knew differed mainly in worship style/focus. I suppose there might have been some doctrine regarding what is required or permitted as part of Mass, where they might have pushed the envelope, but their beliefs were generally mainstream, and they were well accepted in the parishes, not viewed as fringe or deviant.

    If there really is a group called "Pentacostal Catholics", however, my comments don't apply to them.

    In Canberra we have had an active group for the past 40 years. They are sometimes called charismatic catholics, and sometimes called pentecostal catholics.
    And although their doctrine is conservative catholic, their style of worship is more emotional and they speak in tongues. And they are called pentecostal catholics because they speak in tongues, just as the apostles spoke in tongues on the first pentecost.
    Frankly I don't like them because they are anti-intellectual. And I believe they get around immigration laws by claiming religious exemption. And I believe they are highly manipulative without integrity.

    If they are sometimes called "Charismatic", they might be the same group. I never had any patience with them, but then have little patience for the church as a whole now.

    I don't desire higher gifts, earnestly or otherwise.
