The Catholic Church is a lot like the Bible. The Bible is so familiar to us, so apparently benign, it might seem defensible … until you actually read what it says. Likewise, the familiar, friendly Catholic Church might seem okay … until you actually notice what it says and does.
After that, maybe it’s an evil piece of shit.
This is from Catholics’ contraception heresy from LifeSiteNews.
Pope Paul VI eloquently explained what is wrong with contraception: “The fundamental nature of the marriage act, while uniting husband and wife in the closest intimacy, also renders them capable of generating new life—and this as a result of laws written into the actual nature of man and of woman. And if each of these essential qualities, the unitive and the procreative, is preserved, the use of marriage fully retains its sense of true mutual love and its ordination to the supreme responsibility of parenthood to which man is called. We believe that our contemporaries are particularly capable of seeing that this teaching is in harmony with human reason.”
Contraception contradicts human reason and the nature of the human person, and insults the awesome mystery of the marital act. Today’s culture, soaked as it is in immoral sexual innuendo and practice of every kind, rejects this truth.
Gah. That is just wrong on so many levels. What a bunch of assholes.
