comment Where did David set up the tabernacle (tent of meeting)?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's not about Christianity.

comment Where did David set up the tabernacle (tent of meeting)?
Actually the question would seem not to have much to do with Christianity at all. Might be History for the first question, or perhaps BH to tease out the textual confusion.

comment Catholic position about non-truthfully conversion to islam
The 1917 quote here appears as something similar in the 1983 Code at 1124–5, which actually requires the permission of the Ordinary for such a marriage. Given the apparent danger of Jones actually defecting from the faith, I'd guess permission would not be forthcoming.

comment Why does my 130 yr old KJV bible include 14 books that are not found in the modern KJV bible?
KJV is still published with the Apocrypha, as well as without it; and the deuterocanonical books are available separately too.

comment Historically what percentage of the Catholic Church's liturgical function was done in Latin?
Ch 8 of Sess 22 of the Council of Trent has something to say on this. But that was post- and counter-Reformation, and may reflect a clamping-down on pre-Reformation practice as well. Trent allowed sermons to be in the vernacular, but I believe everything else (including Bible readings during Mass) was in Latin.

comment How does the Catholic Church justify discouraging romantic freedoms of homosexuals?
@Kris I think you'll find that towards the end of my answer, but I suppose it does no harm to state it baldly.

comment Baptism of grandchildren
However, despite being irregular or even illicit, the baptism is likely to be valid as the matter, form and intention were correct, so the children's parish priest should be informed in order that it can be properly recorded.

comment Baptism of grandchildren
I suppose that while the children are in the grandparents' care, it could be held that they are in loco parentis at that time and point 1 is satisfied. However, if the parents are not practising then point 2 is doubtful.

comment Why is foot washing so uncommon nowadays
Are you referring to the Maundy Thursday ceremonies practised in most of Christendom (because most of Christendom is Roman Catholic and Anglican), or to a general foot-washing? I'm sure there's a cultural thing here: it's genuinely useful in hot climates, but less so in cold weather.

comment Is Catholicism a “works” denomination?
Well, well, a downvote ("not useful") presumably because the Catechism does not present the Catholic Church's view of the Church's doctrine.

comment Did the Annunciation and Good Friday coincide?
No, other than there may be a corollary in Corpus Christi and Maundy Thursday. And Good Friday and Holy Cross Day. Certainly the Council of Whitby fixed Easter Day as a Sunday.
