    @ Wiseone1w

    The reason you are confused is that you have a different understanding of the afterlife than Catholics. Catholics, unlike Protestants, believe that those who have died are only dead in their earthly BODY, but not dead in SPIRIT. For example, my late husband Mike’s earthly body is in his grave. But his spirit is alive. And that being the case, I talk to him frequently. And I believe he can hear me. And I ask him–since he is not distracted by earthly concerns–always intercedes for me. It is actually better to ask those who are alive in spirit only (and dead in their earthly body) to pray for us because they always pray for us when we ask them. I know–God, have mercy on me–sometimes others ask me to pray for them, and I forget, because I am distracted by earthly concerns.

    Catholics do not “pray to” saints, anymore than Protestants pray to “faith healers.”

    As a Protestant, have you ever attended a revival? Are not certain persons believed to have a special grace–conferred in the laying on of hands–to aid in the healing of others? Why do you not go to every believer (in Jesus Christ) in such situations? I believe there are persons–both Catholic and Protestant–who have been designated by our Lord to have a special intercessory power. Read Corinthians. Such individuals are CONDUITS of God’s power to heal. The actual power can only be the grace of Jesus Christ, for He is the only One who can heal.

    I do not understand why there is so much controversy over this.

    I do not have a problem attributing a miracle to the presence of a particular human being. After all, the New Testament gives testimony to mere human beings being healers. Do we not engage in the “laying on of hands” in order to confer the Holy Spirit? There are teachers, preachers, healers, those with the gift of knowledge, the gift of discernment of spirits, etc. And they are all members of the body of Christ.

    This has nothing to do with a matter at hand being “private” or “religious.” It is whether or not reality can be re-defined. Reality dictates that marriage is between a man and a woman.

    If the government, in this case, the SCOTUS, concluded that the color red is blue, should the people follow suit and conclude the same? Should they be penalized if they disagree?

    Yes, even moral issues have a basis in objective reality. And why people suddenly draw a line in the sand and put moral issues in a box all by themselves truly escapes me.

    Not only is beauty “skin deep,” it is also subjective. Check out some yahoo images of her. I think she possesses a rare kind of beauty, at least IMHO.

    Discrimination is not always wrong. Would not a hospital be discriminating against a man who applied for a job as a doctor but did not have the credentials? Yes, that is discrimination. Gay people do not have the credentials of what has always been understood as marriage–a man and a woman. The credentials that a man and woman have is the Natural Law. It is that simple.

    Furthermore, baking a cake for someone is an act of love. But baking a cake for a “wedding” that is not in line with the Natural Law is “formal cooperation with evil.” The message is, “I support your act of joining together in something that is objectively wrong.” Now if the persons–in this case, the bakers–are held at gunpoint, or forced by a judge to bake the cake or suffer consequences, that is DURESS. And when someone does something under duress, it is “material cooperation with evil.” To resist evil while facing negative or very uncomfortable consequences, is called “virtue.” And virtue is the stuff of “saints.”

    Perhaps the reason nobody is talking about embryonic stem cell research is owing to the truthfulness of what you just said. The problem with embryonic stem cell research is that embryonic stem cells are poorly differentiated. That is why they cause tumour formation such as teratomas. “Poorly differentiated” is a characteristic that stem cells share with aggressive cancers.

    The SCOTUS ruling is the equivalent of saying 2 + 2 equals 5, as in “1984.” The SCOTUS has declared that illusion is reality. If the SCOTUS ruled that 2 + 2 equals 5, or that the color red is green, and a lot of people (rightly) objected, would those persons be wrong in objecting? Would these persons be discriminating against persons who go along with the SCOTUS in saying 2 + 2 equals 5? Would they be “discriminating” if they instead continued to assert that 2 + 2 equals four?

    Why did this woman stop issuing marriage licenses to heterosexuals? Discrimination? It was not “discrimination” prior to the SCOTUS ruling. What we are saying as Christians who uphold the Natural Law is that only heterosexual couples can truly marry and that the SCOTUS ruling is wrong. What am I missing?

    And excessive use of Plan B will eventually take its toll on these young women. Excessive use of exogenous hormones is carcinogenic. That is the reason why doctors are discouraging older women from using a lot of exogenous hormones, which are believed to help protect women from heart disease and osteoporosis. Why younger women are being encouraged to use exogenous hormones is beyond me. Many of these women will develop breast cancer when they are older.

    My hope is that a huge lawsuit will ensue and expose contraceptive use for what it truly is–cancer causing, just like x-radiation, asbestos, and tar (from cigarettes).

    I think you are right.

    Gee, at first I thought that the Swedes had created a “caterpillar drive,” as in Clancy’s book–on which a film is based–The Hunt for Red October. Anyone else see that movie starring a very young and handsome–and probably not yet arrogant–Alec Baldwin and Sean Connery? Great movie!!

    Jinxe, it was the same with the Roe v. Wade decision. Faithful Christians who oppose abortion are persecuted, particularly in the workplace. I’ve been there. Pro-aborts invariably try to impose their beliefs onto those who oppose abortion. Pro-aborts have shown time after time after time they cannot and will not “peacefully coexist” with pro-lifers.

    Because homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered and intrinsically evil. Evil ALWAYS expands of its own accord. It is NEVER content to limit itself in any way. Homosexual activists will try to force acceptance of their practices on orthodox Jews and faithful Christians. It goes without saying. Mark my words.

  • June 27, 2015 at 7:38am

    I believe radical Islam is the only thing that will hold this homosexual ruling in check.

    You are absolutely right, Puddle Duck.

  • [19] June 27, 2015 at 7:33am

    Evil always expands of its own accord. It is NEVER content to be limited in any way. This is the beginning of the end of the United States of America. Christians who are sincere about their faith will be persecuted in the workplace. It is inevitable. Christian conscience is now on a collision course with this ruling. Mark . . . my . . . words. Never mind what Kennedy said.

    Indeed. No country has survived that has sanctioned–or has institutionalized–polymorphous sex. Ever. So our country is collapsing, and that will indeed affect everyone in every way. And Christians who live according to Sacred Scripture and the Natural Law will be persecuted.

    So, everyone, hold onto your hats, your wallet, and your Bible.

    No, actually, if you read the Catechism of the Catholic Church, you would see that it is definitely not “progressive.” However, there are “Catholics” who would like to see that happen. I wish they would just leave the Church and plant their seeds of corruption elsewhere.
