comment Why did Paul go to Arabia?
It's possible that Paul was using Arabia simply to mean "a land of Arabs" as opposed to Jewish people, rather than what we now call Arabia/Saudi Arabia/the Arabian Peninsula. I'm not sure how to verify how the word Arabia was used in the first century though.

comment What is the Catholic point of view towards animals?
The seventh commandment, Respect for the Integrity of Creation. See paragraphs 2416-2418 [as Mawia quoted] at vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/__P8B.HTM, which gives some references in addition to Mawia's.

comment Can ministers of other denominations marry people in a Catholic church?
And are both, one or neither of the couple Catholic? (I'm looking up the rules at the moment; this might be relevant)

comment Catholic Communion under One Kind
Hmm. The Ordinariates' own rite is a strange beast, but that practice is not normative.

comment Catholic Communion under One Kind
In the Ordinariates, we are strongly encouraged to receive kneeling, in the hand, and in both kinds. (But +1 anyway, as well as to Matt)

comment Catholic Communion under One Kind
The 1969 Institutio Generalis (pdf) lays down specific instructions for it. It may only have happened in the Western Rite.

comment Catholic Communion under One Kind
Communion in both kinds was introduced in 1969 with the Novus Ordo. The Traditional Latin Mass still retains communion only in one kind, but I don't believe it's as common as in both.

comment What is the relation between Christianity and Islam
+1. But Christians believe there is only one God, too. Should the first line have "only one God" replaced with "God is One"?

comment Why do Orthodox Christians baptize infants?
A now-deleted answer to another question posited that the Greek verb transliterated as baptize should be translated as immerse — that is, baptism and immersion are exactly synonymous.
