The Church's obsession with human sexuality is absolutely unfathomable. It's not holy, it's not sacred, it's not "dirty". Anyone with half a brain, basic knowledge of biology, history and anthropology should be able to recognise that. Anyone with a knowledge only of biology, history and a...

No, I would have to disbelieve in some things. Disbelieving (as opposed to not believing) in those things would be just as difficult for me.

I can only speak for myself Michael, but my answer would be: no, not at all. I start from the observation of a purely natural world around me, and then build a logical structure on that. When the building process reveals time, and time again, that the initial observation appears to be correct, I ac...

reason alone was to me clearly an inadequate tool. I went with the balance of probabilities (and still do). I would be absolutely fascinated to hear in some detail what makes you regard the probability that God exists more likely than the probability that there is no God. Neither is inherently more...

Would you leave your child alone and unsupervised with a Catholic priest for extended periods of time? I don't know what the question really means. Would you leave me, or yourself if you were another child's father, or a postman, or a Church of Ireland Minister, or a priest? Perhaps the answer is w...
