  • Top Ten Catholic Teachings Santorum Rejects while Obsessing about Birth Control
    • Except that it is not a sin to disagree with the opinions. I can disagree with them that minimum wage should no be raised in the USA and I am not sinning. If I don't pay my employees more that minimum wage, I am not sinning. However, if I disagree with teachings on contraception, or use contraception, then I am sinning. That is a huge difference. One is a fundamental teaching of the church, the other is not. And, because of this, the church treats them differently.

    • Because you call the opinions of the Bishops "teachings of the Catholic Church." They are 2 different things. The reason we can stand with them in this dilemma and not be hypocritical is that it goes directly against the teachings of the church, ie papal encyclicals. That contraception is wrong IS a teaching of the Catholic Church, a fundamental point. That minimum wage should be increased is not a teaching of the church.

    • These are not teachings of the Catholic Church. You are confusing opinions of the USCCB with the infallible teachings of the chruch. The doctrine of the Church is infallible when made from the Chair of St. Peter, and only when dealing with faith and morals. These would include contraception, and many others. Therefore the teaching on contraception cannot be changed.
