    I didn't see this, but it's definately interesting. I like the analysis:

    You know, I tend to have practiced what Hannity said, but knew Jonah was right. That is one of the differences between Protestantism and Catholicism. He shouldn't 'advertise' being Catholic then saying something like he did and not expect that he'd get called on it.

    As someone raised Catholic (and, since one cannot self-excommunicate themselves, I guess I still am!) I've always been appalled at Sean's lack of either catechism or knowledge regarding the church. Seems Hannity wants to have it both ways... he wants to be able to call for John Kerry to be excommunicated for not agreeing with the Church's stance on abortion, yet wants to be able to pick and choose what he himself follows when it comes to birth control.

    Lots of Catholics have this problem... running to the Pope one day for validation of their beliefs and then hiding from him when their views dissent the next. Since I've distance myself from them, I don't have that problem so much anymore... but, if you grow up with it, you surely know what I'm talking about.

    Sean should go Protestant. We are OK with birth control, plus there's no purgatory!

    Basically contraception is stopping the sperm from meeting-up with the egg.

    So is the issue with the Catholic church that you shouldn't hinder the Sperm, and should let it go its natural way?

    I see a casm of difference between contraception, and once it's an embryo, or Sperm and Egg have met and started a human life and then a drug is introduced that caused a miscarriage.

    So is the church saying that scripturally, you can't or shouldn't stop the Sperm from meeting the egg under any circumstances or it's sin? I just am wondering scripturally where they support this? Is it the "be fruitfull or plentiful" admoniton to Adam and Even once they were ousted from the Garden?

    Is a Sperm cell considered a viable, human life before it joins with the female egg, cause there's literally millions of sperm cells that don't survive and die or go down the toilet or shower drain?

    Interested in substantive comments either way folks.

    So do most Catholics in US, which is why they use contraception at the same rate as Americans as a whole. That is not church teaching however.

    As a practicing Catholic, I have no idea what you are talking about.
