Yeah I suppose so Jesse, if you say so.

It seems as if this is meant as a sarcastic tone.  If so, please note that sarcasm does nothing to disprove what I have to say.  If not, my apologies for misreading you.

Quote:And I can't agree with you on Usury or Sodomy.  The two are sins against the natural order and the Moral order, and anybody under a habitual compulsion to commit either of these, wether they caved in or not, would not be good candidates for Priesthood.

We were actually talking specifically about Sainthood, not Priesthood.  Also, habitual, involuntary compulsions are not something we choose; they are the Cross that has been given to us to carry, and carrying our Crosses well sounds like a good way to become a Saint, not a detriment to it.

Pax,
Jesse
