Whoa! I think this’ll be my choice for pic of the day…

Beautiful liturgy……but with contraception and divorce thrown in.
Are they doomed to fail?
Well the two most bias blog minds here have spoken, but thankfully history does not bear their witness! And Rome doesn’t allow divorce, just annulments.. long after marriage!
Can’t resist a dig at “Rome” can you. Your artificial church only came about because the King wanted to have a child and his wife couldn’t provide (days before medical science knew who really to blame). He in effect granted himself an annulment – I know simplistic and of course wound up with power struggles in Europe at that time. Could you stop your snipping at Rome as you are a “biased blog mind” just like the two you have a go at.
@Joseph: Well of course here I am angling at our two most negative responders really, and I am simply seeking to show that Rome and Catholicism doesn’t really have this perfect record either when it comes to the whole subject of divorce, remarrage, and certainly the whole idea of annulments! Sadly, we live in a fallen world, and the Church itself, as I keep saying… biblically & theologically: is a Pilgrim Body, and subject to sin itself! Believe it or not, I am always seeking both the pastoral and theological place! (But of course I am too, just an old sinner! And indeed we do ALL have some bias, even as members of that “Pilgrim” Church).
So hopefully I am “snipping” for the truth! Again, this is the real nature of the Reformation and Reformed Church!
Thanks for the Hat Tip.
