I should have also added that just because someone applies for an annulment doesn't mean that they'll be granted one. A lot of people are under the impression that it's automatic; it isn't.

Annulments are nothing more than a money making scheme by the catholic church. Go see a priest, he counsels you a few times, says the church never recognized your marriage, and oh by the way you owe $500.

Are you willing to admit that when you are convinced others have evil in them, that you could have evil in you and not be aware of the evil???
Just checking.
I don't believe in evil, a devil or hell. So I don't perceive that others or my self are containers for evil.

Chapter 10

This chapter is an ordination sermon, which our Lord Jesus preached, when he advanced his twelve disciples to the degree and dignity of apostles. In the close of the foregoing chapter, he had stirred up them and others to pray that God would send forth labourers, and here we have an immediate answer to that prayer: while they are yet speaking he hears and performs. What we pray for, according to Christ’s direction, shall be given, Now here we have, I. The general commission that was given them, Matt. 10:1. II. The names of the persons to whom this commission was given, Matt. 10:2-4. III. The instructions that were given them, which are very full and particular; 1. Concerning the services they were to do; their preaching; their working miracles; to whom they must apply themselves; how they must behave themselves; and in what method they must proceed, Matt. 10:5-15. 2. Concerning the sufferings they were to undergo. They are told what they should suffer, and from whom; counsels are given them what course to take when persecuted, and encouragements to bear up cheerfully under their sufferings, Matt. 10:16-42. These things, though primarily intended for direction to the apostles, are of use to all Christ’s ministers, with whom, by his word, Christ, and will be always to end the world.

Why does this bother you so much? If a person is divorced but not remarried, they don't have to apply for an annulment, they can still receive the sacraments. You do know that, don't you?
It must bother you since you replyed to me about this subject.....so how many times can a catholic divorce and how many times can they have annullments?

Oh? The Catholic majority of the supreme court ruled that public prayer, to God, before government meetings is ok. This is a remarkable shift in a 20 yr trend of anti religious rulings.
Another reason to smile:
The late night talk show circuit is ruled by Catholics now. lol
Steven Colbert - not shy about his devotion to the Catholic faith; once recited the Nicene Creed during a show; has taught religious education classes at his parish.
Jimmy Fallon - has made it known during interviews that his Catholic faith was a huge part of his upbringing. During an interview with NPR, Fallon shared fond memories of attending daily Mass as a child and being an altar server. Fallon even revealed he discerned a possible vocation to the Priesthood.
Jimmy Kimmel- has discussed his Catholic faith off camera, and is credited with bringing a tradition of his New York Italian-Catholic heritage - the annual celebration of the feast of St. Gennaro, complete with Mass and procession thru the streets - to his current home of Los Angeles.
Conan O'Brien (TBS)- was raised in a devout Irish-Catholic family. Hasn't demonstrated the same devotion the last few yrs....but still says "I DO believe, and this might be my Catholic upbringing, I think things do happen for a reason - I really do".

Thank you, and back at you.
And by the way ... thank you for not adding "God Bless you" on my post.
I promise I won't go into your place of worship and preach Atheism at you.

I just respect your views June, that's why I didn't add God Bless you to my post. I would love to add that if you don't care? I would love to call you Miss June if you wouldn't mind. It's all I can do not to call you sweetheart but you've already showed me you didn't like that one!! LOL

I like you June. I've already told you that before, you don't bother or scare me one bit, and I mean that in a good way. You're just June to me, a smart, witty lady, that believes different than I do. Big deal. Now I'm gonna put God Bless below June, and you better leave it be!! LOL

God Bless Miss June.

God ... "I already know what you are thinking hojo, but I want to watch you squirm when you try to lie to me, as you were in the habit of lying to other humans when you were on earth. So I will ask you two 'simple' questions. Number one, why did you leave the Protestant religion for the Catholic religion?"
hojo ...(quivering in his nakedness) "Well God, I was told that the Catholic religion had the fullness of faith."
God ... "And here comes number two question. Who told you that hojo?"
Hojo ... "The Catholics."
God ... "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. "
In answer to your question: I became a Catholic after studying, reading and researching the TRUTH of over 2000 years of a TRUE Apostolic Church History (especially 1500 years prior to the Refoformation and------- after attending a Catholic Mass, I began to see "how empty and shallow" bible only Protestantism (actually IS) with little or no. depth to its beliefs and teachings.

It doesn't bother me. I simply wondered why it's such a hot topic with you since you go ballistic about it all the time.

I don't know what the limits are on the number of times. It's quite a long and involved process, usually about a year. Nothing like what "Chuck" said; he's just being spiteful. There's a lot of misunderstanding surrounding it, even among Catholics. That's one of the reasons why I told you that one doesn't have to seek an annulment as long as they don't remarry.

..,.there are many catholics living horrible lives because their spouse is abusive or a drunk, or they have nothing in common, but continue on ltogether because the embarrassment of a catholic getting a divorce actually out weighs the terrible life they are currently living......and many fear offending God.

.....the catholic church is nothing more than a control factory, and that is why you will never see catholic posters criticize their own church leaders when they do wrong. They fear questioning.

All semantics.

My best friend got an annulment after almost 20 years of marriage and 3 children. I had no idea they were never married.

...Just one persons opinion.

...... If everyone thought like you they would all join up. 83% of the world isn't catholic and the fact is the majority of catholics were born into the belief.

....people like yourself joining up are very rare in the big picture of vast majority becoming catholics from the cradle.
