comment If a husband wants to recommit to Catholicism but his wife does not want to convert, will they be considered to be adulterers?
@Flimzy I wondered about that. I've now edited my answer to cover that -- it's actually not clear what the sin would be, if it is one at all.

It goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway) that anyone who is in this situation needs to see their parish priest as the sacraments of the Church are mediated through the clergy. But hopefully this answer will give an idea of what to expect.

@brasshat That's easily rectified (and I have!)

Do either of you have another divorced spouse still living? Or is this the first marriage for both of you?

comment What do Christians against state recognition of same-sex marriage think of the fourteenth amendment in US law?
@Manwe So the "correct" course of action is to provide the additional right by creating a new primary right like the UK's Civil Partnership [of blessed memory], rather than by redefining marriage.

@Red This is at least the second "skimmed" comment you have made. Please do people the courtesy of reading a comprehensive answer which they have taken the trouble to write.

comment Does the Catholic Church believe prostitution should be legalized?
Re second comment: Read CCC 2355 which I quoted. You could also try other paragraphs of the Catechism around there. Re first comment: I've no idea how the US picks its wars, and I'm not going to start trying to understand it. You asked about the position of the Church: its position is that prostitution is sinful.

Where does that quote come from? Quotes should be linked but must be explicitly cited in plain text (just in case the link disappears).

comment What is the origin among the Church of England of the Paschal Greeting?
The CofE adopted the Orthodox Easter greeting for its 1980 Alternative Services Book. Do you want references to the General Synod/Liturgical Commission discussions about its appearance? What are you actually asking here? (You already note that the Easter Greeting is an Orthodox thing.)
