comment How do Roman Catholics understand salvation in light of Romans 3&4?
@Monkey Certainly, and most protestant wouldn't deny that a true faith is necessarily accompanied by works. If you want to press protestants on how they interpret James, I'm sure that would make a good question. But this question is a very specific one about how to interpret a particular passage, which you have not even mentioned.

but are we saved by faith alone? If not, what else is involved and how do you reconcile that with Romans 3&4?

comment Why do Protestants allow contraception?
This is not exactly accurate. Progestin-only pills are indeed abortifacient (they prevent an embryo from implanting in the uterus, thereby killing it). Most "pills" contain both progestin and estrogen - the estrogen acts to prevent ovulation (so it is not abortifacient). Some argue that in pills with a high estrogen dose, the risk of abortion is so small that you don't need to worry about it. However, there is no hard scientific data that says how likely it is that these pills will cause an abortion.

comment How do Christians understand the omniscience of God in relation to the Uncertainty Principle?
On further reflection, I think I'd rather define omniscience as "God knowing all true propositions". I still don't see how the uncertainty principle infringes in any way on divine omniscience.

That doesn't really help move the discussion forward. If you define divine omniscience as "God knowing all that it is possible to know", though, it should resolve your objection, and hardly does any damage to Christian theology.
