comment Does Dietrich Bonhoeffer fit the requirements to be declared an official martyr?
If you wanted to rephrase it as 'What are the requirements for canonization' I'm pretty sure you would be reopened and get an answer. Basically turn the question from one about speculating on a hypothetical to one asking about facts.

comment Does Dietrich Bonhoeffer fit the requirements to be declared an official martyr?
Hi Neil. I marked this question as too speculative, but it occurs to me now that if one of the requirements for canonisation is to be a member of the Catholic church, that might answer the question.

comment Were the children of an annulled marriage planned by God?
Anullment does not mean that a marriage was never intended by God. it means that a marriage was never valid.

This reads like trying to start a discussion. Isn't the answer "they are pleasurable" enough?

Can you give us some links to where you heard this? Or what church it is that believes it?

comment What is the Biblical support for a distinction between veneration and worship?
I don't think this is a useful question, because 'veneration' is not a biblical term, so the bible isn't going to define it or say anything about it. It's basically an English word, so the Bible isn't going to give it a meaning.

comment Is there any extra-Biblical 'evidence' of Herod's murder of babies?
In New Testament times Bethlehem was a small town of a few hundred inhabitants. There may only have been 10-20 of infant boys. Killing them was obviously a huge tragedy for the town, but not a great slaughter unlikely on the national historic scale.
