Do you see a similarity between devout catholics and devout islam? Muslims have their apologists?
Do you see that objectively both appear very similar in their conviction and truthfulness?
Do you see the possibility that perhaps you could be wrong? Why
Are you willing to let go of your faith if it went against your conscience? Why
How do you explain children dying and suffering in God’s divine will? I don't want to hear how it is our free will, I want to know HOW you believe a good and loving God could allow innocent children to suffer.
Have you ever felt unbearable suffering or known someone very close to you who had suffered disproportionately? In what way do you see this as the act of a loving God? Even human parents are willing to take on the suffering of their children, why wouldn’t God do that? Do you think that is the way a good father should actually act?
If people like me, an educated, well meaning, theologically aware, and rooted in a positive community person, could fail horribly at living and persevering in the Catholic faith in a sense of whole and positive life, how can we expect uneducated, perhaps mentally ill, or impoverished people to live the Catholic faith?
Suppose for a moment that angels, demons and spirits are a fabrication of our imagination, as fairies, magic and leprechauns, do you see how teaching these ideas to our kids is actually detrimental and abusive?
How dare we teach things to our children that are terrifying that we have no actual basis for?
Can you see how having multiple children for some people can be very difficult, but NFP doesn't work well in their situation? (As in mine)
Can you see any basis for morality other than divine?
