comment Why is Jeremiah 31:31-34 interpreted by Catholic Christians to point toward Jesus?
Most Christians believe that. Please see the answers to this question.

What do you see as the BIG 'meaning of life' question?

No, even if you were only pretending from the start to be on someone's side, you have still betrayed them.

You are chopping logic here. Even a Russian-born spy who infiltrates the US and sends secrets back to Russia has still betrayed the US. Implicitly or (more likely) explicitly they have violated the behaviour expected of them.

Sorry, my mistake. I assumed you knew that Judas was one of Jesus closest follower, one of his innermost circle. I'll write up an answer explaining that.

comment In what sense did Judas betray Jesus?
This is far too legalistic to be a sensible question. If I am your friend, even more if I am your follower, I don't have to make an explicit promise not to bring a hostile mob to you and have them arrest and kill you. That's the 'implied behaviour' you mention. Is there something else you are trying to ask?

comment Veracity of Carte Blanche in The Three Muskateers
Firstly, the Three Musketeers is a romance. Many of the things that happen are wildly implausible, even according to the times. Secondly the Cardinal is clearly acting as an agent of the state here, not the church (he was both). A church official would not have had the ability to excuse a (non-clergy) person from civil punishment in any church period I know of. I recommend sending this to History.

comment What does “to pray” mean in Catholicism?
Plenty of Protestants also make a distinction between 'prayer' and 'worship. Meditative and contemplative prayer are also used among Protestants.

comment Can one be a practicing homosexual and also a Christian?
I'm afraid you have fallen into a common trap which AffableGeek correctly described. You are assuming that you have to fix everything in your life before you can become a Christian. This is not the case. You are also failing to address the question of whether "being a homosexual" is defined by actions or by orientation. Even the most conservative branch of Christianity should be aware that having a homosexual orientation is not a sin of itself, and failing to point that out gives an entirely false view of Christianity.

comment Is hypocrisy a sin?
You are mistaken about your definition. Hypocrisy is pretending to be virtuous when you are not. It is not necessarily hypocritical to point out someone else's sin - only if you do so while pretending not to be sinful yourself. (There may be other reasons for not pointing out the sins of others apart from hypocrisy).

comment What is so appealing about Christianity?
This question is clearly inviting discussion.
