comment What is the Biblical argument that homosexual attraction is sinful by itself?
I don't think this actually answers the question.

comment What does the Catholic Church mean when it says In-vitro Fertilization separates the procreative act from procreation?
My understanding is that the Catholic reasoning is: 1) sex is the method God gave Man for creating life 2) sex is the only God-approved method for Man to create life 3) sex is only approved of by God when used for the creation of life. Everything follows from these 3 precepts: IVF is out because it's creating life w/out sex. Ditto artificial insemination. Birth control is out because it's used to have sex while preventing procreation. Basically, reason #2 (embryos destroyed) isn't part of why IVF isn't allowed.

comment What is this box that can be found in Catholic churches?
From that picture, it's hard to say, it could just be "a lamp."

comment Is Freemasonry now open to Catholics?
This is a duplicate question by the standard used on all SE sites: there is an answer on that other question which is also a relevant answer to this question.

comment What's the reasoning behind sacramental architecture?
I see two main problems with this question: "Why does it look the way it does" implies that there's a single look or style, which I think is false. It also ignores that for a church that takes a long time to build (e.g. St. Peter's), the design changes significantly over time and the final look is an amalgam of multiple architects' ideas.

comment During Lutheran Confession, can the confessor refuse to absolve the sins of the penitent?
Don't know about Lutherans, but a Catholic priest once complained a bit about people who come to confession, tell him they're doing something sinful (e.g. living with someone they aren't married to) and ask to be forgiven. "I can't forgive someone who's still doing something sinful."

comment Can a Catholic marriage be annulled because one doesn't believe to Sacred Trinity anymore?
You seem to have at least 2, possibly 3 questions here... As per this previous Q&A, many Annulments are handled at the Diocese and country level, with no involvement by the Vatican at all. christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/5079/…

comment Is the Summa Theologia infallible to Catholics or not?
I think you would benefit from reading some of the other questions on here about infallibility. e.g. christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/15558/… and christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/15547/…
