comment “Blessed Virgin” - not Saint?
The Catholic hospital in the town where I live is "St. Mary's" and there's a lot of Churches called "St. Mary's" in my diocese (but most of them have some extra stuff). But this is a good question nonetheless.

Sorry for giving you a moving target, but I really didn't intend a question that would be focused on same-sex anything. It's a useful aside, but the real question is what is so great about sacramental marriage that we think it its framework (unitive and procreative) should be foisted on the masses regardless of creed.

Binding one's self to another with a oath for a lifetime commitment, it's a dangerous thing. In fact marriage is the most dangerous thing in the entire world. Chesterton says "Marriage is a duel to the death, which no man of honour should decline"

@trig I think all this nonsense is a rouse being perpetrated on us all by the new world order. I think only traditional family values can fight it. And I think it is for the good of all mankind that we do, or else one or both of us is going to end up a scapegoat in a concentration camp sometime in the next 20 years

@mr. this one this is still supposed to be a scholarly site and I expect more than personal opinion, but I can't prevent people from venting or whatever.

I don't think we are called to tolerate sin. -1 is because this is just your opinion not because I didn't appreciate the way in which you presented your argument.

@svidgen Jesus says not to say to your brother "Raca" or the council will get ya, and if you say "you fool" your put yourself in mortal danger. I can't help but think that has something to do with facebook.
