comment If Jesus is God the Father, did God the father die on the cross when Jesus died?
I believe this question is [now] asking about the heresy of Patripassionism. There are a couple of questions on that, both of which are relevant.

@Nathaniel CCC 1030-1032; 1472. user20202, you may want to add these references into your answer as corroboration.

comment What's Moses up to nowadays?
Deuteronomy 34:6 would indicate that his body was not assumed into heaven like the others (and that's not apocryphal or deutero-canonical).

comment What is the Catholic teaching on oral sex and impotence?
Ah, right. So oral sex as foreplay is ok. Probably. However, the question specifically excludes the normal result of foreplay.

comment What is the Catholic teaching on oral sex and impotence?
@Jecko You might think so, but the Catechism is explicit, as I quoted. It's possible that lack of ejaculation might extenuate moral culpability, but it doesn't extinguish it.

comment What is the origin of the idea that the baby Jesus did not cry?
Sorry, what has Heb 4:15 to do with the question of whether Jesus cried as an infant? Could it be interpreted (even figuratively) as saying sin=crying and since he did not sin he did not cry? I don't see the relevance of that quote if that is not what it's being adduced to say.

comment What's “reciprocal subsidiarity”?
Christianity has everything to do with politics, because it is through politics that a just society is created. Pope Francis is talking about how to live in society: "Love God, and love your neighbour as yourself" -- and it's that last exhortation which is probably what he meant by "reciprocal subsidiarity".

comment Why does the Roman Catholic church allow girls to serve the altar?
@Dick While you may be right that sopranos are female voices, you may have forgotten that trebles (boys) sing in many choirs worldwide, and a substantial number continue to do so once their voices break.

comment Besides Paul, were there any other enemies of the early church who converted to Christianity?
Well, notably there was Constantine, but that was quite a bit later than the apostolic period.

See Fr Zuhlsdorf's blog where the relevant Canon (1000.2) is cited.

...in your opinion. Can you provide objective substantiation for the assertion, however valid that might be? This is Stack Exchange, not a forum!
