Pope wades diplomatically into gay marriage debate

The gay activists prefers to keep such research hidden just as they wanted to keep hidden how they intimidated the APA in changing removing homosexuality from the DSM. Homosexuality was once considered a disorder.  (Jun 25, 2013 | post #83)

Where in my post did I even suggest such a thing. I said that research shows that gay men have a higher rate of STD than heterosexual men.  (Jun 25, 2013 | post #81)

You should do more research rather than rely on wikipedia. For example, in your weblink, it says that same sex marriage was legalized and condoned in Rome until Christians emperors outlawed it. If you had done your research of that time period in Rome, you would have known that what the Christian emperors outlawed was mainly pedophilia, which was very rampant in Rome at that time. Along with pedophilia and homosexuality, concubinage was also accepted. As I said, if you take out one restriction, then others from the polygamists wooodworks will come out and also demand their right to marry more than one woman.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #76)

Same sex marriage is not about marriage equality. Polygamy dehumanizes women into sex objects. Does this mean we should allow polygamy? The sexual practice of gay men only spreads disease. That is what you're really endorsing - the spreading of disease. While it's true that heterosexual men who engage in anal sex also end up using STD, there are many many many heterosexual men who do not engage in that kind of sexual activity. Gay men, on the other hand, appears to have no other way around it.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #75)

Roman Catholic church only true church, says Vatican

It was Constantine who allowed Freedom of Religion in Rome. By allowing Freedom of Religion in Rome, Christians were now allowed to practice their beliefs without fear of persecution. All they had to do was read the Edict of Milan, which was passed by Constantine to know that. Before the Edict of Milan was passed, Christians were being persecuted and killed. With the Edict of Milan, everyone including Christians and pagans were allowed freedom of worship. The Edict of Milan was the first historical document showing that it was Rome that allowed freedom of religion for everyone, not just Christians.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #454344)

Baptism, confirmation, and the Eucharist are celebrated as one sacrament by the Early Christians, and today the Eastern Catholics still follow this. The Catholics in the West, however, separated the sacraments of baptism and confirmation because there were not enough bishops to give out all the sacraments. In the West, the priest baptizes and the bishop confers the sacrament of confirmation. In all three - Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist, the Holy Spirit is present.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #454336)

Yes, the people of Antioch were the first to be called Christians. That is in the Bible. And the Bishop of Antioch (Ignatius) was the first person to use the word "Catholic ". That is found in a first century historical document. So, history and archaeology is on our side.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #454333)

First of all, Mark 16:16 actually reads: He who believes and IS baptized will be saved and he who does not believe will be damned. Some people like to twist the words in the Bible by ADDING "and is not baptized" into scripture. There is nothing in the Bible that says that Jesus was baptized full immersion or whether water was sprinkled on his head. John could have sprinkled water on His head. Also, Catholics practiced BOTH full immersion and sprinkling water on the head. It was God who gave John the baptist to authority to baptize. John the baptist could not baptize Jesus when he was a baby because John was an infant himself. Yes, Catholics have the same baptism that Jesus did.....with both water and spirit.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #454328)

Catholicism didn't start with Constantine. It started with Christ. The first person to use the word "Catholic " dated back to the first century. It was first used by Ignatius, the Bishop of Antioch, and the historical document exists, so the evidence is in our favor. And as I have stated, the Jewish roots and heritage can be found in the Roman Catholic Church. It certainly cannot be found in any Protestant churches.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #454315)

They are in Heaven. Christ said, "Do not hinder the little children to me for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Christ also said that baptism is necessary. He said that those who believed and is baptized will be saved (See Mark 16:16). As for those who believed but chose not to get themselves baptize because they feel it's not necessary, God will be the one to judge them. We are the not the ones to judge anyone as to who will be in Heaven and who will be in Hell. If a Christian is not certain about Christ's words in Mark 16:16, then following Christ's footsteps in the next best thing. In other words, if the Son of God feels that it's important that He be baptized despite the fact that He doesn't need to be baptized, then that should be good enough for me. I would follow in His footsteps and also get myself baptized.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #454306)

Below is a weblink from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention. I provided the weblink below so anyone can read the rest of the article. Gay and bisexual men have a higher rate of STD than heterosexal men because of the kind of sexual activity they engage in. According to the weblink: Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) have been increasing among gay and bisexual men. Recent increases in syphilis cases have been documented across the country. In 2008, men who have sex with men (MSM) accounted for 63% of primary and secondary syphilis cases in the United States. MSM often are diagnosed with other bacterial STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea infections. http://www.cdc.gov /msmhealth/STD.htm  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #69)

They can join the TEC because the Catholic Church does not accept women's ordination.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #48)

In the first place, I never said that Abraham and Moses were Roman Catholics. I said that they are part of our Catholic history because Christianity came from Judaism. After all, Christ was a Jew, and the first Christians were Jewish. Surely, you don't think that Christianity came out of Hinduism.....did you??? As for Christ calling Mary, "mother" ...of course he did. Just because you can't find it in the Bible does not mean that He did not. After all, the Bible DID say that there are things that Jesus did and said that were not recorded in the Bible (See John 21:25). One of the things that Jesus did that was never recorded was calling Mary "mother. " Surely, you did not think that Christ was an unruly and disobedient child....did you???  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #454296)

Same sex marriage has never been recognized among Christian societies or even among the Jews. Look at the research. There are higher rates of STDs among gay men than among heterosexual men. An endorsement to same sex marriage is an endorsement to these diseases.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #68)
