They confused it with a law banning incestuous marriage

It's actually 2 separate people, sewed up in the middle.

Here is a dissenting opinion to which I have already been told does not follow the teachings of the Catholic Church. Having a “life giving marriage” does not require that you have a large family nor does it mean you have so many kids that the kids life or your life will not be worth living. After struggling with two kids we decided that we could not have more kids as it could result in a severely less worthwhile life for all of our family. We did consult with our priest before and after the decision. Talking was helpful in our case.

Ultimately it is you and your spouses decision.

The main issue is being open to life, not having a certain number of children. Contraception (and a contraceptive mindset) blatantly rejects God's will, should He will a baby to be conceived.

You're stuck with it until you pawn it off on another user or Reddit disappears into oblivion, whichever comes first. I'd bet the former.

The layout of your items looks like a goofy face with a goofy smile. You have my approval.

Yea i do look like an asshat it just seems really unlikely that i get laid anytime soon. Now that i got pussy i want more. Hitting the gym for the first time tonight. Hoping to approach a ton of women when college starts back up.

I'd also add, don't put the pussy on a pedestal. It's good shit, but not that good. It's just some pussy - all women have them.

Nice try, officer.

Nice try, officer.

Hashbang22 - I'm down to help you out.

I'm up for anything. Hashbang22, add me and we'll do some grinding.

So she just...randomly calls an ex and they decide to move in together? I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that that isn't very random, and you probably just left an adulterous marriage as well. Get a lawyer and try to record all of your interactions with her. You'll probably have to defend yourself against more lies and allegations of abuse.

I can only imagine the embarrassment when this guy has to explain to his fellow inmates why his leg hurts. That clerk is hardcore.

I guess I did not think about skinny guys. Everyone is so fucking fat where I live.

I don't, but you didn't specify which law applies to you.

A man can hit back a 10-year-old girl and not be charged with a crime in Germany?

I too would like to know the answer to this question.

Law of Self Defense. His class is specific to the state he teaches it in, but the book is basically how and when to defend yourself and do it legally so you avoid jail. Great stuff. You can buy it on his website if not on Amazon.

He taught the class in my town with the FBI Special Agent in charge of our region as his assistant, and offered a shoot/don't shoot exercise afterward with both of them as coaches. Really an awesome experience. I can't recommend it enough. I plan to take the Advanced class once he is back in town.

Grabbed Law of Self Defense Kindle version for $12.99 I think. Fantastic read. Like 2/3rds of the book is charts of laws, so the meat of it was a bit light for the length of the book, but it was still very concise and informative. Would definitely recommend to whoever reads this comment.

Just lead by example. You can't force her faith, but by living your faith and showing her just how fulfilling that it is to you, she may have a change of heart.

I want to bring her in and make sure she truly, and willfully

Don’t worry, I know forcing one to join is not how it is done. I try to do it warmly and in welcoming manner.

The logic of that statement breaks down a bit by suggesting your actions should make sure she truly and willfully wants to join the Church.

(You got this though - if all else fails, club her on the head like /u/AllanTheCowboy suggested!)

:-)

This may come across as insensitive or uncharitable, but it's not my intention. But by having a handful of poor experiences with Catholics and extrapolating that to deduce that this the way of the entire Church, aren't you essentially doing the same thing as the man who said "all LGTB are demons" in making a broad generalization of the entire population using evidence from an experience with a tiny sample of that population?

I'm sure you've heard people say that there's room in the Church for everyone. The Church doesn't say all LGBT people are demons and evil; instead, it says that we're all sinners, and you're called to live the same chaste life that an unmarried person is. I'm not trying to downplay the significance of some of the people you've dealt with, but their views are not Catholic views, nor are they the views of most Catholics.

I'm sorry that has happened to you, and I wish you the best of luck in your path to salvation.

She's not necessarily saying that they characterize all Catholics, just that it's too many for her to survive in body and soul.

If you were healing from serious injuries, would you stay in a hospital where only one in four nurses gouged you in the wound and smeared feces in it each time they did their rounds? Even if the other 3/4 expressed their sympathy and tried to re-cleanse the wound, you'd still die there.

Now I can’t help but see how much the church hates me

but the way the church behaves regarding certain sins proves this to be wrong

After finding the truth of someone who made that very claim I can’t with any good conscience trust any Catholic who purports similarly

No, I can’t be around Catholics now. I find them too poisonous.

It kind of seems like a characterization of all Catholics. Like, a handful of bad experiences means all Catholics are poisonous.

If you were healing from serious injuries, would you stay in a hospital where only one in four nurses gouged you in the wound and smeared feces in it each time they did their rounds?

I definitely see your point. But if I knew that that hospital had the greatest chance of saving my life, and by leaving for a different hospital I would a higher risk of not surviving, I would probably stick around at that hospital and bring it to the administrator's attention. Something to the effect of "gouging my wounds and smearing feces are not approved medical treatments, and evidently 25% of the people in this hospital are doing it. You, as the hospital administrator, have a duty to all of your patients to address this abuse, as I know that this is not hospital policy to do so."

Even if the other 3/4 expressed their sympathy and tried to re-cleanse the wound, you'd still die there

Again, like I stated, if I knew this was the hospital that practically guaranteed my survival, I would try to do something about the obvious abuse, rather than roll the dice with another hospital that may not be correct in their medical practice. If this wasn't the hospital that gave me the best chance of survival, I'd find another one.

I guess what I'm getting at with the analogy is whether or not Catholicism is God's Truth. This person evidently thought this was the one true Church at one point and would give them the best chance for salvation. Taking a few experiences with a tiny subset of the population (certainly less than 25% of the population) and using that as evidence to condemn that entire population doesn't seem like the best conclusion to draw from these experiences. That would be similar to saying "I've met 4 trans people and believe that these 4 are evil, and therefore all trans people are demons and going to hell" - neither conclusion is fair or appropriate to draw.

Hope that helps to clarify. Best of luck to all.

Others have suggested you find new friends. I'll take it a step further and suggest that you find friends. These are not your friends.

That being said, never be the one to escalate. De-escalate the situation, but don't be afraid to meet force with equal force. E.g., if someone is pulling your arm, don't threaten to kill them. That's a bit over the top.

Awesome! I had my first pick last night. My first set came in the mail yesterday, so I rocked a Schlage lock at my parents' house to see if I could. Took less than 3 minutes. 99% luck, and probably 1% rake tool lol. I wasn't able to do it again. It was still pretty exhilarating and a great motivation to sit down and learn this skill!
