I'm sure he is but how would anyone know when his main objection seems to be against birth control and abortficents like a “morning after” pill?
Exactly why is Dolan against 14 year olds (or any one of any age) engaging in sex outside of marriage?
St. Paul said fornicators along with murders would not inherit God's Kingdom, period. Is that Dolan’s basis for objection to premarital sex?
“If you're a toxic a**hole who absolutely MUST find fault in any and all things Catholic, I suppose an utterly moronic question like this would make some type of sense”
I'm sorry. I seem to have brought out some ill concealed vulgarities of thought but you did say that you're a person “capable of linear thought”. Just what were you thinking? Never mind, I don't want to know!
Are you serious?
“Exactly why is Dolan against 14 year olds (or any one of any age) engaging in sex outside of marriage?”
Most of these young girls are from the ghetto and most would not in that shape if they could outrun their brothers.
The Catechism, section 2353, reads:
Fornication is carnal union between an unmarried man and an unmarried woman. It is gravely contrary to the dignity of persons and of human sexuality which is naturally ordered to the good of spouses and the generation and education of children. Moreover, it is a grave scandal when there is corruption of the young.
In section 2348 we read, "All the baptized are called to chastity" and in the following section we read, "Married people are called to live conjugal chastity, others practice chastity in continence.". ("Continence" means "no sex," for those of you in Rio Linda.)
In section 2390, we read "The sexual act must take place exclusively within marriage. Outside of marriage it always constitutes a grave sin and excludes one from sacramental communion."
I trust that's clear enough.
