I'm going out on a limb here but I would say that you are not Catholic and have no knowledge of it's doctrines. On that assumption I will try to explain. Any and I mean any real Catholic would know that God forgives any person who genuinely regrets and repents for their sins. Any Catholic knows that Abortion is a severe mortal sin. Any Catholic knows that confession without honest remorse is worthless. Any Catholic knows that if you say you don't regret the mortal sin of abortion you can not be forgiven and in God's grace again. She explicitly said she does not regret the abortion so what is she seeking forgiveness for?
A Catholic would see that it doesn't make any sense. I don't care but she shouldn't mischaracterized the sacraments of the Church.
Did you not stop to think her initial regret is what led her to confession and repentance which then led to forgiveness which then led to feeling cleansed of her mortal sin which then led to no feelings of regret? That's the standard order, yes? Why did it escape you this time?

If you are a baptized Catholic it is a mortal sin, you didn't even bother to ask, you and the other one just immediately jumped on her like flies on dung.

I am only questioning her knowldge of Catholicism. It doesn't work the way she says and if she was a Catholic she would know it.
You need to question your own knowledge, a mortal sin committed by a baptized Catholic removes the person from a state of grace. Another important fact about Catholicism is you are taught to strive for holiness and perfection and you're not doing that therefore you are just as guilty of sinning. Do you regret not striving to be more like Jesus? You better because if you don't regret your venial sins and repent you are likely to partake in mortal sins.

It' not your place to judge it, twit. I can't make it any clearer. YOUR jesus said not to judge others, and that is what you are doing. You are trying to speak for your god in terms of HER relationship with him. Any good catholic ALSO knows you aren't supposed to do that. Practice your faith as you interpret it and leave others to do the same. Believe it or not, of the millions of catholics out there, most disagree on one or more points of dogma and doctrine.
<quoted text>
Oh my gosh, you are wrong. The sad thing is its people like you who spread lies and judge others. You know NOTHING about the Church, you say you were Catholic but I have my doubts. Your family may have been baptized Catholic but I doubt your family practiced Catholicism. You have only posted what protestants think we practice which was a big giveaway that you are a fake.

We sin till the day we die, no matter who you are. we ask Christ to forgive and try to do better ,but we are human and will make mistakes, yep until the day we die. Christ still loves us and will forgive,ALWAYS.

Alright well a true Catholic has spoken, now tell that to the rest of the Catholics who are being willfully ignorant of their own teachings.

You are the one who said you didn't regret killing one of God's children. That makes you an unrepentant sinner and as a Catholic, you know you have to honestly repent to be forgiven. I don't believe that you don't know that if you have had any Catholic teaching.
Once again, I don't recall you being in the confessional with myself or my priest, and if Jesus told you something that I dont know, I didn't get the memo.

For the last time: I've repented, I've atoned a LONG time ago, and I have been absolved of those sins. Whether YOU don't think I've sufficently atoned or reptented is truly meaningless. The state of my soul is between Jesus and myself.

You really should worry about your own state of grace.

You said
"I dont regret that abortion at all, and I've confessed, asked for forgiveness, and been granted that by Jesus"
Yes. I did say that. Clearly you've ignored everything else I've said on the matter. You seem a bit dense that way.

I don't know why YOU are so intent on MY being or feeling guilty, but I follow what my priest and my Lord have told me, and I'm fine with that.

By what authority do you think your word outweighs that of Jesus OR my priest?

BTW, this is a rhetorical question. I don't expect an honest, intelligent or civil response from the likes of you.

Who is in charge of policing the adherence to Catholic doctrine? You? Sassy? Knut? Who is the official head of that department?

Oh, and I thought Christians were supposed to at least try to not sin and strive to live as Jesus would want them (you) to, but in reality you faux-Christians can just go against your own dogma, justify it by saying you sin anyway, and then ask for forgiveness.

What a convenient system.

What Ink forgets is that "G" said she sought forgiveness for what led her to getting an abortion. Temptation, seeking pleasure whatever you older ladies call it because you sure seem to have trouble saying sex. Temptation is the original sin which led to the "downfall", not abortion and for that she's been absolved.

Well thank you for saying so my friend.
I do try but freely confess that I don't think I'm always successful.
Still, after all the time-off he's had, I'd hoped that "Seattle" would have mellowed out just a tad.
Might as well wish for any one--or all--of the antiquities Indiana Jones hunted down while I'm at it...

He's got a temper, that's for sure. But I think he's basically a decent guy. His problem seems to be that he's fixated on certain things to the point of obsession.

Well it's about time you started thinking about "adverse effects," so, okay Rach...you can have a Coke.
No Admiral Nelson's Spiced Rum for you though--I recall all too clearly the amount of annoyed calls I'd received last time complaining about "some nutty Canadian chick who's alternately arguing with a lamp-post and yelling at a parked car."
