I agree completely on her views regarding masturbation.The Surgeon General under President Clinton advocated teaching masturbation techniques to all girls.I fully agree.I also support same-sex marriage.Her article didn't indicate her views on abortion.I support abortion under 'certain' circumstances.

More than 300 years after Galileo, the Roman Catholic Church has learned NOTHING.

This is ANOTHER EXAMPLE of why the Roman Catholic Church is UN-AMERICAN. Don't like a book ? BAN IT !

I think it’s pretty obvious that the Church’s understanding of innate sexual urges, in light of the clergy sex abuse scandal, shows a “defective understanding” of the nature and power of instinctual human behavior and the consequences of imprudent repression of such strong natural forces.

"Indeed, when religious people quarrel about religion, or hungry people quarrel about victuals, it looks as if they had not much of either among them." - Benjamin Franklin

I don't think the Vatican will be satisfied til they ban sex altogether. Then they'd have to SNEAK, like they don't do that now :)

I also am disgusted with Their refusal to Ordain Women to the Holy Priesthood.Their reasons don't even make any sense to me;and,They are misinterpreting the Biblical references on this Subject.
