Fornication is one of the most common sins but one that is easy to do penance for. Many clerics and Catholic monarchs and nobility fathered children with concubines because they didn’t use birth control which as I said is a greater sin, and what many clerics use today in order to keep their fornication a secret. King David had concubines but he was still a man after God’s own heart.Check that crusade against sexual abuse link I posted before. The Catholic Church at no point in its history whatsoever has ever managed to get the clergy or the laity to actually follow the rules on sexuality; if anything it's actually doing better today considering clerics aren't openly fathering children or keeping concubines in the western rite as historically has been the norm.
It is Catholic doctrine that it is a sacred duty for married couples to procreate which is what they meant by chore. A women is allowed to abstain in the short term but not long term. How is it sick to say that women should not violate their wedding vows? It is just as bad when a husband denies his wife sex.It said a man has a right to demand sex and compared it to doing chores. That's fucking sick man,
I did not say that it is fine, I in fact said that a husband who does it is an asshole. However, it falls short of rape because the wife still makes a choice. If a wife bullies her husband into offering sex, is it rape?So it's totally fine to scream at your wife and bully her into offering sex. Like I said, Catholics have a very low sexual standard compared to westerners because here in the western world; we call bulling a woman into offering sex rape.
If you say it is because the spouse doesn’t want to have sex, here is an important analogy. Some leftists support legalizing prostitution(which I as a Christian thought should be illegal until I discovered that it was actually legal in Medieval England with certain restrictions). However under the flawed definition of rape you gave, prostitution is rape because the prostitute has sex not because she wants to, but because she wants money.
What? Did Pomme send you a message saying she broke up with me?! Tell me the truth!Not gonna happen.
I am not justifying the age of consent laws in Southern Europe, I am saying that it is caused by the darker skin and hair color of Southern Europeans, not by Catholicism.15 is low (far too low in my opinion), however this is still higher than the Catholic south and the official Catholic age of marriageability.
It doesn't matter if she "looks older", a fourteen year old girl is still a child. This is still church endorsed pedophilia, even if it's higher than it used to be.
Again, Catholics have very low sexual standards.
And I also said that I believe that either 16 or 18 should be the age of consent and men who marry 14 year old girls should WAIT until she turns 16-18 before having sex.
But in atheist Hollywood, Harvey Weinstein and others raped many women and boys. The popular atheist YouTuber, The Amazing Atheist made fun of a rape victim on reddit.I'm picking on Catholics because you're a Catholic. Please don't think I think any higher of Protestants, I have the same level of respect for them as I do all theists; that is to say none at all.
Considering that most of the UK now identifies as "No Religion" versus a then previous Anglican majority prior to the date you list what you said just proves my point; Christians have lower sexual standards than Western Secularists.
What they mean by very mild is that the babies simply don’t get to have beatific vision. So their beliefs did not differ much from the idea of Limbo except that in Limbo, the babies are neither rewarded nor punished.I'm sure the pedocows listed on these forums would be delighted to hear they're in line with Catholic morality to inflict "very mild" child abuse on babies.
The concept of the logos was introduced by diaspora Jews living in Greece showing that some Jews had a divinely inspired understanding of the Son of God even before the Son of God came.It's the most "Greek" of the Gospels; in that it's the one that introduces the mystical elements such as the logos and focuses on God as an entity of love rather than the father as the embodiment of law and wrath. It's also the only one with a specifically anti-Jewish bent. There's a lot to go through, but for a very brief introduction..... https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/religion/story/john.html
It is true that Matthew, Mark, and Luke don’t mention the Pharisees as much as John, but that is because as the article said, they are from a Galilean perspective while John is from a Judean perspective.
According to Wikipedia Pope Julius III had a relationship with Inmocenzo Ciochii Del Monte who’s age was unknown but declared by the Pope to be in 1532 which would make him 18 by the time he had relations with the Pope. Pope Alexander VI was promiscuous but the women he had sex with seem to have consented.Uh huh, and that really flies in the high reneissance where Popes like Julius II openly kept male concubines and the Borgias who fathered children every other five minutes.
The fucking Vatican today still owns gay brothels and saunas https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...lours-where-priests-pay-for-sex-a6729251.html
TL;DR: The Catholic Church endorses pedophilia and rape at an official level and you still haven't proven otherwise.
