Posted by SCMO on 27th July 2018 in Blogging |

Marriage

Posted by Peter Kearney on 3rd March 2003 in Christianity |
There are certain teachings which the Catholic Church does not have the power to change. The law on the indissolubility of marriage is one of these areas: "What God has joined together, let no man put asunder" (cf Matthew 19:6-9). The Church has consistently upheld this belief for 2000 years. From St John Chrysostom to John Paul II the teaching remains constant. Annulment is not divorce.

Catholics who are in an abusive or unhappy relationship are not forbidden from obtaining a divorce, which is a civil procedure. They are committing no sin by ge...

Life begins at the moment of conception. If we hadn't been conceived we simply wouldn't be here. This is a simple scientific and medical fact. If life doesn't begin at conception then when?

She is told she has the right to choose and yet women are never shown the consequences of the choice they make. He...
 

Euthanasia

Posted by Peter Kearney on 27th August 2005 in Christianity |
The sick, the frail and the physically and mentally handicapped deserve our particular respect. They should rally our support and focus our thinking, because they are our brothers and sisters in Christ. Must we, in the case of terminal illness, do everything and anything possible to stay alive, despite the condition we may be in? The answer to this is cleary NO. There is no civil or religious law which says that we must stay alive at any cost. What is never permitted, however, is any act or omission which causes, or is intended to cause, death, in order to remove a person from suffering. This is euthanasia, sometimes called mercy killing. It is not necessary...
