comment According to the Catholic Church, does abortion need to be confessed, and is it a mortal or venial sin?
If in doubt whether it was a mortal or venial sin, it is much safer to play it safe and confess.

comment What is the biblical basis for classifying the Eucharist as an offering or sacrifice?
@curiousdannii Priests don't re-sacrifice Him on altars. There is only one and the same sacrifice because Christ is "a priest forever" (not just when He walked the earth 2000 years ago), "according to the order of Melchisedech" (Psa. cix. 4.). Read the passage immediately before what I quoted (§§177-178).

comment Is there a future for ecumenism? What is the main obstacle for Christian unity?
"justification by faith alone have been confirmed by both Fr. Hans Kung and Emiritus Pope Benedict XVI"‽ Do you have a source for that? That's heresy according to the Roman Catholic Church.

comment According to Catholic Tradition: Was the group he was addressing in the Book of Romans Gay?
This question seems to be about the difference between "gay" and "one who performs acts of sodomy" (sodomites). Such semantic issues are off the topic of this site.

comment Is idolatry the main cause of homosexuality?
@DoubleU Yes, it's about idolatry, but my question is really about why "God gave them up to the desires of their heart," "men with men, working that which is filthy," i.e., homosexuality, specifically.

comment Is idolatry the main cause of homosexuality?
@DoubleU: Yes, any of them. And, no, I don't mean "prominent theologians who specialize in queer theology" (whatever that is).

comment Is idolatry the main cause of homosexuality?
No, I'm not limiting this question to what St. Thomas Aquinas thinks on this issue. I just put his exegesis there as an example. I would like to know how other prominent theologians interpret St. Paul here, regarding whether idolatry causes homosexuality.
