They found no example in the New Testament for merging church and state. They understood Jesus to teach a strict separation between the two (Matthew 22:21; John 18:36.). The church should not seek support from the state, nor should the state force people to join the church or obey its religious rules. Baptism: The Anabaptists were called as “rebaptizers”. Their opponents gave them this label because they baptized believers who had previously been baptized as infants.
Thus, together with biblical declarations, the teaching of the Catholic Fathers on this issue form the tradition of the Church that priestly ordination is reserved to men. Throughout medieval times and even up until the present day, this teaching has not changed. To many Catholic women, these arguments have ceased to be convincing. In their opinions, Church leadership is an “Old Boy’s Club using ‘God’s will’” as an excuse to avoid ceding any executive power to women. Some Catholic women insist that the excuse is a distinct discrimination, and they are starting to ask
It is then assumed that Okonkwo somehow expected this kind of behaviour from his son as he always saw Nwoye as “weak and woman-like” (Strong-Leek 2). However, Okonkwo ends up disowning his son, Nwoye after he abandons the Igbo religion. The decision by Okonkwo to disown his only son for following another religion is yet another example of Igbo’s inability to deal with change, especially that which has not existed within the Igbo language.

Clerical celibacy is the requirement in certain religions that some or all members of the clergy be unmarried. These religions consider that, outside of marriage, deliberate sexual thoughts, feelings, and behavior are sinful; clerical celibacy also requires abstention from these. In the West, Rome began to require all clergy to be celibate. Clerical celibacy is mandated for all clergy in the Latin Church except deacons who do not intend to become priests. Exceptions are sometimes admitted for ordination to transitional diaconate and priesthood on a case-by-case basis for married clergymen of other churches or communities who become Catholics, but ordination of married men to the episcopacy is excluded.

Ray Marchan CE1-B15 Argumentative essay: “Should we legalize divorce in the Philippines?” Divorce: A way to get out of nightmares A lot of sufferings encountered when you are married. If the problem became huge like adultery and/or domestic violence then it’s time to file a divorce papers. The problem is that there is no divorce law in the country.

Colson uses the reasoning that same sex marriage would cause families to collapse, would cause children to be more likely to commit crimes, and also cause couples to have children out of wedlock. Pollitt uses examples of different religions like Protestantism who support “gay lifestyle” but do not support gay marriage.

On the other hand, Colson leaves us off saying “ If we fail to enact a Federal Marriage Amendment, we can expect, not just more family breakdown, but also more criminals behind bars and more chaos in our streets” (Colson). Having two people of the same sex getting married does not cause all these problems, these things can occur in any type of marriage.
