• Mark S.

    Great discussion. Great RATIONAL discussion. I am a straight Catholic married man and hold tightly to my faith and my church but there are more complex elements at play in this debate and find it hard to move it to completely black and white. That’s why civil discourse is needed. I believe that any sex outside of marriage is very disordered, a teaching of my church, yet that belief doesn’t seem to have prevented sex outside of marriage nor can I imagine how I can legislate it away. The only thing I believe I am called to do is visibly live my faith so that others will see it as joy-filled and want to have that too. From where I am, that is remarkably harder than legislating morality.
