Ah, yes it is if the local bishop says so. Some have a community phone, others are forbidden and have to go for help other ways. They have the right to refuse, bitler. Go find something to do, your temper is terrible. Maybe you just have a craving for butter and bacon sandwiches and a two liter of Mountain Dew.
You have a very unhealthy diet, obviously.

You are wrong. As usual.

Now I am back to five.
And yet, with this supposedly "healthy" lifestyle you claim to lead, you're still "seething" with barely suppressed rage against all those posters whom happen to disagree with you "ideologically/philosophi cally/spiritually...

Greetings Michelle!
I'm not going to wait for an answer. Which won't be forthcoming, because it was spun from cloth made from the threads of an active imagination.
Everything seems to be a mortal sin these days. Makes me pine for the days when garden variety venial sinning was commonplace.
Aged, my dear! How are you? I hope all is well. As far as Knit's claim, her answer, or non answer rather, was to ask my uncle. Considering he's not the one who's making the claim, it would be rather idiotic to ask him. The thing is, I'd hate to think she'd lie on the Roman Catholic Church and spread a fallacy, however, if she had proof that photographing a gay wedding is a mortal sin per the Vatican, she would've produced it.

Can you show me official proof of this? I'd appreciate it.

John!! How are you? I hope all is well with you and yours. As far as my avatar, I never knew you were a gorgeous show dog, LMAO!! ;o)

Anyways, I was doing a bit'o'research about attending gay marriages being a mortal sin and so far, I've found no official Catholic statement on it. It seems to be a very gray area. From what I've read, some people believe that attending such weddings, is a mortal sin. They believe that attending a gay wedding means they're condoning it and because the RCC believes homosexuality is wrong, they believe attendance is a sin. Then you have folks who attend such weddings out of love for the person(s) getting married. Kinda like "love the sinner, hate the sin" sort of deal and that wouldn't be considered a mortal sin. In short, there is no definitive answer. If you feel that God would disapprove of you attending such a wedding and that weighs heavy on your conscience then perhaps it's best you don't go. If you feel God would understand your love and compassion for the people involved and that He would not hold that against you, then perhaps it's best to go. Either way, it's a very personal spiritual decision and it seems there's no absolute right or wrong answer to it.

Sigh...

I'm simply wary of "virtual-stalkers... "
;P

IMHO, some of those conservative folks get themselves too worked up over things that are never going to have any effect on them personally.
I've never really understood the whole fuss about "gay marriage."
Those who whoop-and-cry about how it's going to "destroy/undermine" the concept of "marriage" have never--as far as I've been able to ascertain--made a credible case for their argument.

And, I think they manage to do a real disservice to the religion that they claim to adhere to...

I didn't manage to reply to the rest of your post Milady...my apologies!
:)

I'm doing O.K. I guess.
I can't complain...well sure I can, but who wants to read that?
I'm only a gorgeous "show-dog" when you happen to brush me out--which you've been rather remiss of lately Milady, so now I'm looking a tad mangy...

Obviously, you don't have a healthy diet, as you keep talking about those disgusting sounding, unhealthy sandwiches. It's clear that, like NR, you love them, as you talk about them all the time.

As for your protestations here, you'll have to forgive me if I take them with a grain of salt, coming as they do from someone who admitted to lying here.

"Nobody wants to take away your rights."

That statement is a LIE, Inky, because the anti-choice crowd has made it very clear that it DOES want to take away women's reproductive rights by pushing to make it illegal. Republican politicians are also doing their best to take away those rights by passing draconian legislation that seriously restricts our access to both contraception and abortion.

But hey, you keep telling yourself that LIE if that's what makes you feel better. Just don't expect me to buy it as "fact" when I know it isn't.

Here's what I found looking into your claim of Amish in Nebraska:

"Presently there are no Amish located in the state of Nebraska as far as residents

There are a few instances where young people have taken employment and stayed with a family there

Nebraska Amish came to be known when there was a small settlement near Gosper, Nebraska but due to persecution around the turn of the 19th century, they simply left and returned to Mifflin County PA.

They are most recognizable by white curtains rather than doors on their carriages.

They are one of the most conservative groups of Amish in America"
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index...

"The Nebraska Amish are perhaps the most conservative group of Old Order Amish, descendants of the Anabaptists and Mennonites.

The present Nebraska Amish districts are found in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, with small extensions into Centre, Huntingdon, and Union counties. The Amish came into this region of Pennsylvania as early as 1791. Around 1880, Bishop Yost H. Yoder led nine families from Juniata County, Pennsylvania, to Gosper County in south-central Nebraska, founding an Old Order settlement that would last until 1904, three years after Bishop Yoder's death. Yoder went back to the Kishacoquillas Valley in Pennsylvania in 1881 to assist a conservative Amish group. Yoder was living in Nebraska, and the group was nicknamed the Nebraska Amish by others."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebraska_Amish

"‘Nebraska’ is something of a misnomer, however. This group is found mainly in Mifflin County, PA, in the diverse ‘Big Valley’ region. A second, smaller group is found in northeastern Ohio.

The Nebraska tag comes from the origin of the group’s founding bishop, Yost H. Yoder. Today there are a number of subgroups within the Nebraska Amish affiliation."
http://amishamerica.com/nebraska_amish/

"Cornhusker State was first settled by Amish in 1880.

Settlement since then has been sporadic and sparse, with just a handful of Amish living in the state today (for the ultraconservative Pennsylvania group also known as “Nebraska Amish”, go here)."

How amusing; you described YOURSELF perfectly, Knutter. Nice work; reading your posts is a great reminder of the reasons why I love being Catholicism-FREE (CF for short).

And why should Bitner or anyone else for that matter "need to revisit the Church and rediscover Christ?" So she could end up being a miserable piece of work like YOU? What a dismal and depressing prospect THAT would be.
