Adult people have to take responsibilities for themselves. If they have to keep looking to the church for answers everytime they can't make a decision that shows how little self esteem the individual has about themselves.<quoted text>
On dogma and doctrine? Yes.
Again, I don't have to agree. For a period, I didn't agree with many things, because I didn't understand them. Like contraception.
The Church can't force our conscience to believe as they teach. Privately, many Catholics go against their teachings. I think if people took the time to examine the how's and why's the Church teaches, then they would realize the truth in their teachings.
The church or any church should not control anyones lives. If a person is not going to use contraceptives ONLY because the church instills fear into them for not complying, then I say run as fast as you can away from the CHURCH.
