Skimming through this has been entertaining to see how a non Catholic tries to justify his attacks upon the Church. These unceasing attacks by his ilk were one of the main reasons I reverted, after all it was Christ Himself who promised we would suffer persecution for His sake. I doubt he spends time on a Presbyterian site arguing against their beliefs.
One point about annulments though; they don’t require “a small fee”. My first marriage was recognized by the Church and upon it’s end I applied for an annulment and received it. At absolutely no charge, zero dinero required.
But I’m sure our resident Catholic basher will deny the possibility of that. That removes one of the favorite themes against Catholicism, i.e. that the clergy are made up of worshippers of Mammon.
