Agape - I think Ghoti meant your general posting tone, not specifically this thread. Your tone can be a little, ummmm, sledgehammer-ish. You probably don't mean to come across that way, but you have to remember this is a message board, so there is no other emotion than what you convey through your posts.
Hm, this thread has some weird posting times going on and everything is out of order.I haven't heard of this group. As others noted, and got attacked for, they aren't in communion with the Roman Catholic Church and are a schismatic group. If that doesn't matter to you Ghoti, then so be it. But you are posting on the Catholic Weddings board, so it's not surprising that it does matter to a lot of members of this board.(As an analogy, it would be kind of like posting a question about sex on the Christian Weddings board... and then getting upset when a lot of the posters responded that they are waiting until marriage. Know your audience.)
sure, legal the way other christian religions are. but the way this one is worded, some could interpret it to mean legal in the eyes of god and the catholic church, since its a "catholic" organization. also because tehy say essentially, "if the "real" catholic church wont give you the sacraments, we will" and it will be legal in the eyes of god (catholic god?). the other thing to think of is this.catholic attendees at your wedding might not realize this is a schismatic group, right />? so they will process up and take communion, assuming its (for lack of a better phrase) "legit" catholic communion. if i knjew going into this it was an organization/wedding service not in communion with rome, then i wouldnt take communion. also, the church isnt anti-second marriages. the church just requests that proper annulments take place in order for a second marriage to be performed. sometimes those annulments are granted, sometimes not, depending upon the circumstances.
