What does my same-sex marriage have to do with you? Why the fuss over this?
It seems unfair to say that gay people can’t get married. It is a violation of their civil rights. This…
I don’t know how to respond when someone “explains away” their bad behavior by just saying, “God made me this way”. Is that true?
First, homosexuality is not a sin. The term “homosexuality” refers to the condition of being sexually attracted to members of one’s own gender. An attraction, even a same-sex attraction, is not sinful; it is simply a description of what is. Every one of us struggles daily with our attractions and desires. This is the human condition: we are made good, but are sometimes attracted to things that aren’t good for us.
I’ve been hurting a lot lately, not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. It seems like no matter what I do, nothing changes. If God has been trying to teach me a lesson, I think I’ve learned it by this point.
Jesus teaches us to pray for our enemies. Lucifer, and all of the other fallen angels, are our real enemies (according to Saint Paul). Does that mean that we should pray for Lucifer?
I know that I am supposed to forgive those who have hurt me, but it is so hard. Every time I see this person, I get so mad! What do I do?

How come whenever something good happens I am supposed to thank God, but when something bad happens, I can’t blame Him?
