On Conscience - St.Thomas Aquinas
What Makes Actions Good or Bad? - St.Thomas Aquinas
The Ten Commandments
The Numbering of the Ten Commandments
"We don't need all the ethical rules of organized religion. All we need is the Golden Rule."
"I keep hearing about 'social sin' and 'structural sin.' Whatever happened to personal sin?"
"I know that when a person commits mortal sin he loses the reward he would have gotten for his good deeds. When he repents and goes to confession, does this mean he will have to start from zero in gaining new rewards?"
"What is the fundamental option theory? Has it been condemned by the Pope?"
"Doesn't James 2:10 say that all sins are equally offensive to God?"

The Ten Comandments

I "You shall have no other gods before me"

"Why does the pope kiss the ground after he disembarks from an airplane? This seems superstitious."
"Does the Catholic Church permit the use of divining rods?"
"Some people argue against the Catholic use of holy images by citing Deuteronomy 4:15, which says God did not show himself under any form. What would be a response?"
Do Catholics Worship Statues?
Is Catholicism Pagan?

II "Holy names"

III "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy"

"In this day and age, what's the right way to observe the third commandment, 'Keep holy the sabbath day'?"
"How could Jesus alter one of the Ten Commandments, as he did with the sabbath law?"
"If Sunday is the Christian sabbath, should we celebrate it from sundown on Saturday to sundown on Sunday? Is this why Saturday anticipatory Masses fulfill our Sunday obligation?"

VI "You shall not commit adultery"

"I was told by a priest that sexual intercourse between unmarried persons is acceptable so long as it reflects a relationship of love. Lots of people seem to believe this, but is it true?"
"In my church I was taught that dancing is sinful. What I have seen of dancing confirms this is right. How can the Catholic Church condone dancing?"
"Some say that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was inhospitality, not homosexuality. What is the official Catholic teaching on the nature of the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah?"
"Why is Natural Family Planning accepted by the Church while contraception is condemned? They both do the same thing--prevent pregnancy."
"A priest told my girlfriend that it is okay to touch one another intimately before we are married. Is this correct?"
"Are homosexuals born with this disorder? And if they are, why would God place such a heavy cross on any human being he created?"
