The priest would warm my ears real good and sometimes ask if I was in last week with the same sins (he recognized my voice because I was one of his altar boys). I would rack up the Rosary beads for each incident. The nuns in the church would definitely take notice as I spent penance time before the Virgin Mary.

You're dating yourself. Many of those teaching orders got silly after VCII and certain bishops altered their seminary recruitment practices to be more 'inclusive'. Worse yet, western society has shifted into secularism. In his pre-conclave homily, then Cardinal Ratzinger warned the Cardinals: “A dictatorship of relativism is being formed, one that recognizes nothing as definitive and that has as its measure only the self and its desires.”. He continues to assail moral relativism today.

Moral relativism is a set-up for Marxism. By making ones moral thinking no more important than the other you set the stage for political, economic, legal and material egalitarianism. Egalitarianism is a system which renders human beings as equal. To reach such a Utopian society, one utilizes the state to redistribute all aspects of human life until all are equal.

Just a side light: Gay marriage is an effort towards the egalitarian treatment of human relationships. When the gay relationship is equal to the heterosexual relationship, the egalitarian objective is accomplished.

The opposition by the gay community and their anti abortionist cohorts to the Catholic Church is an effort to transform society by retooling the Church. When you put everything they are doing into one description, they are reducing the importance of life that is produced by the relationship between a man and a woman. Life does not have any more protection or significance than that which is determined by the state. Life produced by a man and a woman no longer have that level of significance that our culture has given it through the ages.

As the love relationship of heterosexual marriage and the beginning of human life are being attacked by the Marxist effort to transform our society, one can only wonder what's next?
