If I could convince them that those things were wrong I would. And then I would try to help them live those convictions. But I would not force them to follow my beliefs, even if I could.

There are some things, like murder, that I consider sins that I would work to stop people from doing.

Some of the biggest arguments I have with myself is where to draw that line. If it is something purely religious (attending church on Sunday for instance) then there is no way I would work to force anyone to follow my beliefs. There are other things, however, that are damaging or bad whether they are sins or not. For instance, I think drunk driving should be illegal and harshly punished, not because I think people shouldn't drink, but because driving while drunk is dangerous to others as well as the drinker. But drinking alchohol is one of those that could, theoreticaly, go either way becasue there are dangers but most of the objection is religious. Therefore, I don't raise a fuss about others drinking as long as they do it responsibly.

As far as the origional issue, I think people would be better off if no one engaged in sex outside of marriage. But the odds of that happening are all but non-existant. So I don't see why people shouldn't have access to protection against the dangers. But at what point does that access become an endorsement of something I disagree with? I wouldn't take away a wino's bottle, but I don't want bottles of alcohol shoved in my face either.


I am completely okay with having my opinion and allowing others theirs.
I am completely okay with others sharing their opinions with me and even trying to convince me they are right. I would ask that others allow me the same privledge, both listening and having the right to walk away.

Hot metal on ice? Perhaps you mean the other way round...

Back on topic. :)

Maybe the next pope won't be willing to tacitly condone sexual abuse.

It is possible, Pronto, that he doesn't have full-time computer access, like some folks do. Thus, he doesn't respond, not because he has nothing to say, but because he's not here to say it.

However, I do believe it is excerable that Law was put in such a prominent position.... this seems like a deliberate stab at American ex-Catholics and those Catholics still upset about the handling of the abuse.
