For Marty, you seem determined to condemn NFP, although you admit the Church allows it for serious reasons. You cannot condemn a method as totally un-Catholic and then admit the Church allows it some of the time. THe abuse of something does not make that something evil; that's basic theology.
My oath I'll 'condemn' NFP! Of course I'll admit the Church allows it... cos it does...fair dinkum.
I've taken my agenda elsewhere, like you flagrantly feministicly suggested, and you barrel me up here...what is a man to do? No wonder I drink.
I can 'condemn' a method as un Catholic such as NFP just as I do the use of alter Girls and the 4th Mysteries of the Rosary, - what's wrong with that? Am I upsetting you?
I'm stating the bleeding obvious, I'm not a rocket (or NFP) scientist, I'm a flippin plagiarist!!
I just wish the Church would just say, "if you cant handle kids right now, for what ever reason (blah blah blah) don't participate in the marital act." simple and effective and dumb proof.
I reckon even I would know how to do that...
