comment What specific good does Catholicism attribute to play and entertainment?
This reads like trying to start a discussion. Isn't the answer "they are pleasurable" enough?

comment Was Jesus quoting from a proverb of His time at Luke 9:62?
Not an answer, but I would expect it's unlikely. Jesus was unusual in talking about the 'Kingdom of God' at his time.

comment How and why can a woman become a priest?
Are you asking about women as Israelite priests? Are you asking what would be needed for churches that currently don't permit women to be priests to change their policies? Are you asking how to become a priest in a denomination that permits women priests? Are you asking why churches that permit women priests do so? Please edit the question to make it clearer.

comment Festival of Tabernacles
Hi Jennifer, and welcome. Thanks for contributing. This site is completely focussed on factual questions about Christianity. So "Would you say it is beneficial..." is off-topic here. "What kind of things do you need to carry out this celebration" is on topic. I would recommend editing the question to remove any subjective parts.

comment What is Church substitution doctrine?
Can you give us some links to where you heard this? Or what church it is that believes it?

comment Does Jesus ever say that if you reject his mother then you reject Him?
Your comment about worshipping Mary isn't helping. There are no Christians that I know of who worship Mary.

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 Was Jesus Christ a Christian?
There is no question here. You've given a definition of 'Christian', nd according to it Jesus is and was a Christian. if you chose to define the term differently you could get a different answer.

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.

comment What is an overview on how pastors are compensated?
What are you looking for? Biblical references about paying pastors, or a description of how different denominations pay pastors?

comment The appointed time
Eagel, the sheer number of your comments leads me to think you are not trying to ask a question here as start a discussion. We don't do that here.

comment The appointed time
This question is full of mistakes and assumptions, far too many to list in a comment. To start with just one, there is a big difference between 'knowing about the stars' and 'practicing astrology'.

comment What type of “dragon” is implied by the seven headed serpent of revelation?
This might be better on Biblical Hermeneutics.

comment Why are there only male popes?
@toogley Catholic theologians would indeed doubt that. Please have a read of some of the other answers on this site about why Catholics only permit males to be priests.

comment What are the current views of the Catholic Church on the right to secession?
In passing: "the Scottish should be granted Independence". You mean forced to be independent against their wishes, as expressed in a referendum?

comment When did Apostle Paul write the epistle to the Romans?
A good bible commentary will give you answers to questions like this for any book of the Bible.

You also might like this encyclopedia article about Sargon I which shows pretty much no similarities to Moses.

comment Why are the Vatican archives kept secret?
These sites only attest to the existence of 'secret' archives (where 'secret' is here used in the old medieval sense of 'private'. They say absolutely nothing about whether there are other records that are not 'private', or indeed how much access is allowed to the 'secret' archives.

comment Why are the Vatican archives kept secret?
Could you give us some links or other references to substantiate this claim of "other than a few document" the Vatican archives being secret, and also how it compares with governments of other countries?
