If someone ignores or violates the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, I really don't know how they can consider themselves a Roman Catholic. That's why I had to leave the Democrat Party even though the local Democrats were as conservative as the Republicans.
Do you think the Catholic Church may some day emerge fully into the 18th century?
So that they can embrace buggery, abortion, and Bill Clinton along with you? I doubt they see the need.
Five stars, Analogy of the Year Award! In fact, the whole article is five stars, and I wouldn't mind reading more by this author. The ONLY THING good about islam is the way they treat those convicted of this particularly disgusting form of debauchery.
This is pure crap! Deviant infers the departure from a normal man/woman relationship and not their sexual activity. Perversion is not equal or comparable to a man/woman relationship and comparing it as such is irrelevant and ludicrous.
The century that culminated in the Reign of Terror that's served ever since as the model for totalitarian ideologies? I pray not.
So there. Except for one, these generalizations could apply to the mafia as well as they could apply to homosexuals.LOL. Damning with faint praise?
I think it was during season 3, but it might have been during season 2. The focus of the episode was college football gambling: after being made, Christopher was having difficulty making the nut he owed Paulie Walnuts, and Paulie was giving him hell for it. It was the episode where Chris caught Paulie taking a surreptitious sniff of Adrianna's, uh, intimate apparel.
You can only define homosexual behavior as "deviant" if you also define any sexual activity that isn't aimed at producing children as deviant.Not even remotely true. Sexual activity with a marriage fosters unity and closeness in the marital bond, strengthening the fundamental building block of society, the family, even if there are no children.
There are many sexual activities engaged in by men and women that aren't directed toward impregnantion. Sex between two men or sex between two women is simply one of those non-reproductive sexual activities.Just like sex between a man and a goat, or between a man and a child are simply two more of those non-reproductive sexual activities.
A lot of the prejudice against gays originated in Biblical times, when it was imperative to be fruitful and multiply in order to ensure the survival of the tribe, or the species. Any activity that didn't lead to reproduction was bad, because it didn't contribute to the survival of the group.Riiiigghhtt. If you are referring to the Bible then the prejudice originated because this guy we call God said so. The Jews didnt get together and say we stone gays because they dont bear children. They stoned gays because they felt it immoral and contrary to Gods Word. Agree or disagree with that Word, dont misrepresent it.
These days, when we have too many people crowding the earth,Auuughghhhhh!!!!! The sky is falling. Again. You sound like the Bible beaters who keep claiming the end times are here. Really, they mean it this time. Even though all such predictions have been wrong before.
The Catholic Church is one of the last holdouts for the "be fruitful and multiply" point of view in the modern world.And darn proud of it, but truth be told you are leaving quite few people out.
The Church still officially forbids any kind of birth control, including contraceptives, doesn't it?Yes, but we do allow NFP, which brings us to:
Wow! I'm impressed by the Church's liberalism. They actually allow Catholics to use the rhythm method (also known as Vatican Roulette).99% effective. How effective are condoms? (I mean assuming they are actually used) 99%? Same number? So what is that, Satans Roulette?
Do you think some Catholics ignore the Church's injunctions against contraception? Maybe even laugh at them?Certainly, just as some other Christians ignore Christs injunctions. Maybe even laugh at them.
Do you think?Yes. You?
Do you think the Catholic Church may some day emerge fully into the 18th century?Actually, to the extent we are stuck anywhere we are stuck in the first century. But in reality we prefer to the truth, a concept that is outside time, does not age, and does not change. You may choose to be modern all you like. It is your loss.
For centuries, the Catholic Church taught that sex just for the fun of it was a mortal sin which would damn you to hell for all eternity.Nope. Just having sex once damns you to hell for all eternity? You have little to no understanding of Catholicism. Mortal sin yes, damned to hell for eternity on the spot? No. Married couples are indeed supposed to have sex, including sex just for the fun of it.
I'm not a homo hater---I feel they've got every right to live the way they choose to live, but I definitely think they've got to lighten up about it. "Queer" is really a perfect word for them, because I can't fathom why any red blooded male would choose to get busy with Brad Pitt over Jennifer Lopez. But hey, to each his own.
You're bound to stumble on an idea, sooner or later.
Unfortunately any of us that have ever sinned have sinned just as bad. That would include everyone but Jesus.
