    Catholic marriage is a covenant between a man, a woman, and God. There is an annulment process that if for some grave reason, the marriage ends in divorce, can end this covenant. Otherwise it is “until death do you part”. That is why the Church will never allow there to be a redefinition of marriage. It is a sacrament and should be treated as such.

    The Church treats homosexuals the same way it treats unmarried heterosexuals. They are to remain chaste. If they remain chaste, they are in a state of grace and can receive all sacraments. Pretty simple if you know the faith.

    The Church is supposed to guide you in the teachings of Christ for you to save your own soul. It uses its resources as a charitable organization to do works of mercy as Jesus commanded us to do, and protecting life from conception to natural death, along with promoting the sustainability of the family unit, (Marriage between a man and woman, and realization of the covenant entered into with God to remain married until death do you part). Focusing on Jesus all the way!

    The Church welcomes the homosexual community at present. They are held to the same standards as heterosexuals. If you are not married, then you can not live together (except as brothers and sisters) or engage in any sexual relations. Pretty simple really.

    Faith and morals jb, faith and morals. He does not have infallibility over anything else.

    The Church has made additions. The Holy Spirit has guided the pope, cardinals, bishops, priests, and deacons just as it guided the apostles after Pentecost. The pope has infallibility on faith and morals. He can not change doctrine or dogma.

    I would bet my last dollar that a nearby agave plantation sprayed with DDT recently and rainfall washed it into the lake. I used to witness this in the Finger Lakes Region of NYS as a kid before DDT was banned. They sprayed the vineyards with it, and after a rainfall there would be massive die offs of Alewives.

    Anglicans who do not agree can take the route through the Anglican Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, welcoming them into the Catholic Church and allowing them to retain their liturgy and traditions that they cherish. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI foresaw this. God’s teachings and laws are not open to debate.

    You can take all the money. It will never take away the summit of what the Catholic Faith is….The Eucharist.

    The Catholic Church has done many things over the course of the last 10 years to bring to an end child molestation. It has instituted policies and programs that educate and bring to the front this most grievous act. The Church knows it has made errors in how things were handled. The Church also knows that it will get smaller because of these and other issues. For most Catholics, this is no problem. We have made great strides to learn from mistakes and make necessary changes that will help to insure the safety of children. What is such a joke is that non-Catholics think that if they ridicule the Church that they are going to make it non-existent. The Church has endured centuries of hardship to bring forth the teachings of Jesus Christ. The pedantic blathering of idiots in a secularized nation are not ever going to change the fact that the Catholic Church is the purveyor of Gods Will and teachings.

    The rapture is a contrived protestant gimmick. That so called “cult” gave you your Bible. Come home to the True Church, founded by Jesus Christ on Pentecost. Don’t let the errors of the past rule the future. Jesus gave us the rules, so leave your hatred a bitterness behind. Look forward to the coming of Jesus and pray that you will inherit God’s kingdom. Jesus died on the cross for us all, but you can’t go through life, treating others poorly, and expect to gain salvation. Don’t place yourself on a righteous pedestal either. The Catholic Church knows the errors it has made throughout the years. Although the institution of the Church has faulted, if it wasn’t for that institution, you would be on your knees, facing east, 5 times a day instead of having the freedom to worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. So get off the back of the Catholic Church which has done more for our western civilization than protestantism has ever done. Look at the messed up culture the liberal views of protestants has given us. We can only pray that God continues to bless America. I know if I was Him…I wouldn’t.

    Well Monk, I’m not a troll and think your remark disrespects Pope Francis. There needs to be a peaceful resolution to the ongoing Israel/Palestine conflict. Pope Francis wishes for peace as do all Christians.

    The Catholic Church gives multitudes more than what it has in holdings. A little research by the Catholic bashers would be refreshing. That way they wouldn’t sound so ignorant.

    If each and every person did his very best to care and love each and every person, there would be no need for the government or states to redistribute anything.The citizens have failed each other in the race to the top and quest for material goods. Empty your garage and attic and care for those in need. Then you will have much wealth and reward in the afterlife. This is what the Pope is saying.

    I hate to see Catholics leave the Church and pray that one day that those who leave return to the Church founded by Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church will do just fine without you while you take a dirt road which will likely lead you astray. I choose the direct path, guided by the Catholic Church to lead me to eternal salvation. One day you will see, like millions of your PROtestANT brothers, that the Catholic Church is the true Church and come home. For this I pray.

    Happy Easter. Easter Vigil was a beautiful celebration last night with so many new Catholics coming into communion with the Church Jesus founded. He is RISEN indeed!

    He’ll probably want to know why the Pope sold the Harley he was given and donated the money to rebuild a soup kitchen in Rome instead of giving it to him who is all deserving as the “Messiah” in his own mind.

    There is only one faith to be that is the truth. The Catholic Church. You can not blame what the Church IS on the failings of man. Human frailty is part of God giving us free will. Any person of sound reason knows that the Catholic Church, over the centuries, has done far more good for this world, and continues to do so than what evil has ever transpired. Learn the faith. Do not judge. Anyone who truly takes the initiative to do so will never follow another path.

    There are caps that protect school districts from being sued for over a certain dollar amount. It is not lucrative enough to go after teachers. The Church is not awarded the same. The progressives want the Church to fail and be out of their way.
