    [–] Why can women with a hysterectomy get married in the Catholic church but not homosexuals? kjdtkd 1 points ago in Catholicism

    Except thats not what an analogy is, your conclusions don't logically follow from your premises, and even if they did, they say nothing about the morality of homosexuality.

    [–] Why can women with a hysterectomy get married in the Catholic church but not homosexuals? kjdtkd 1 points ago in Catholicism

    And my response is that they don't change the nature of the act. As such, there are occasions where it is licit to have sex even after a vasectomy or while using HBC.

    Perhaps I did not speak clearly. Whether something or not is contraceptive in its effects has nothing to do with intention. Whether you are culpable or not, depends on intention.

    [–] Why can women with a hysterectomy get married in the Catholic church but not homosexuals? kjdtkd 3 points ago in Catholicism

    Neither of which are contraceptive intrinsically. They are contraceptive in their effects, and if these effects are intended, then it is a grave sin.

    [–] What is purgatory like? kjdtkd 4 points ago in Catholicism

    I don't know. Ive never been. I assume that they have some sort of revealed knowledge, but thats just a guess.

    [–] What is purgatory like? kjdtkd 6 points ago in Catholicism

    Purgatory is more painful than you could ever imagine. The only redeeming quality is that you know it is temporary.

    Because it doesn't change the nature of the act. That external factors prevent conception from occuring does not change the act itself.

    Mutual stimulation of the penis by the vagina and the vagina by the penis, culminating with climax of the penis inside the vagina.

    But infertillity does not change the nature of the act. It is an accident. What about infertility changes how a heterosexual couple does sex?.

    [–] Why can women with a hysterectomy get married in the Catholic church but not homosexuals? kjdtkd 8 points ago * (lasted edited 10 hours ago) in Catholicism

    Infertillity is an accident. Something being an accident does not mean what you think it means.

    An accident is a condition or aspect of a thing which does not flow from what the thing is, but can be or not be without affecting the nature of the thing. Take triangles. Imagine I had a red triangle. Does the fact that its red make it a triangle? No. Therefore, red is an accident.

    Does the fact that someone is infertile make heterosexual sex the kind of thing that is not open to life? No. Then it is accidental. Does the fact that both people are male make homosexual sex the kind of thing that is not open to life? Yes, then it is intriniscally immoral.

    [–] Why can women with a hysterectomy get married in the Catholic church but not homosexuals? kjdtkd 14 points ago in Catholicism

    Homosexual intercourse is immoral because it is intrinsically closed from life. Heterosexual sex is sometimes moral because it is not intrinsically closed from life. A persons fertility level is merely accidental, not essential.

    [–] Which of these two Catholics is worse? kjdtkd 14 points ago in Catholicism

    One is sinning. One is defective in belief. Unless the first has been corrected and still refuses to believe truly, he has reduced to no culpability.

    [–] Tax exemption and abortion in the US kjdtkd 2 points ago in Catholicism

    You believe that most of the laity, hearing the command, would obey?

    [–] Tax exemption and abortion in the US kjdtkd 6 points ago in Catholicism

    Such a command would be a grave burden on the faithful and doubtless would lead to more sin then it would prevent.

    [–] Tax exemption and abortion in the US kjdtkd 14 points ago in Catholicism

    The Church should and does denounce actions by politicians all the time. Also, the Church should be tax exempt.

    [–] I do not take sides in Catholicism. And for this, I am hated. kjdtkd 2 points ago in Catholicism

    So be more precise, and don't get upset when people misunderstand you.
