Poll

Question: If you are Catholic, have ever been a Catholic or are thinking of converting to being Catholic, are you for or against birth control for yourself and your spouse? Any kind counts...

Options:

Yes we belive in and or use birth control, now or in the past

No we're strict with the Church and believe any kind of birth control other than NFP is a sin.

Other....always an other and I'm gonna explain...or not.

So I'm having a conversation with my friend about the new Pope and she lashed out that he's a Liberal Socialist that will work well with Obama.

I shook my head thinking I'd misheard her, he'd been selected all of ten minutes, how did she know this?

So I mentioned that I hoped he would bring the Church into the modern world and allow birth control.

She went off on it being abortions, going to Hell...etc. Very entertaining but it brought some questions to mind. (and a reminder that there were other forms of BC besides the Pill)

If using birth control of any kind is immoral, are vasectomies and tubal ligations? You're deliberately altering your body to prevent pregnancy, deliberately reducing sex to a pleasurable act instead of a procreative one.

Thoughts?

For some of the hard core Catholics I know, tubal ligation and vasectomies are huge no nos.

What does the ability to have children have to do with faith or religion?

What people do with their bodies and how they choose to make a family is not any churches business.

Let's focus on spirituality and not the control of people's lives.

The church can take its stance on reproduction and shove it up its collective ass. If it does not bend in the wind on this, it'll break.

The Catholic church is against all those things.

Most Catholics I know use birth control.

I'm not a Catholic, so I won't comment on how their faith decides to do things.  I do find it, from my point of view, archaic and out of touch with the reality of the world we live in.

And see...I could understand this back in the Dark Ages when the majority of babies died early and you needed to keep having them to ensure at least ONE made it to adulthood to carry on your name.

Just doesn't seem to make as much sense now.
