Ask a question on Catholic theology.
The Holy See has condemned amplexus reservatus, which is natural intercourse minus climax.
What does this mean? Trying to have intercourse but not being able to reach orgasm? Or onanism? Or what?
It means the usual process of natural intercourse, but the couple each willfully refrain from climax. They are able to reach climax, but they choose not to do so.
I believe creating more and more media attention to the abuse scandal will only hurt the Church. A little ok, but to constantly publicize the abuse scandal will give people the idea to create more false accusations and give people the idea to leave the Church. A committee of lay people or an outside secular group of people to investigate Bishops can pose danger to the Church. Who knows if they could make up false accusations against orthodox solid good bishops?
And the idea of forcing the bishops to resign is ridiculous, since they will just be replaced by priests, many of whom are just as bad.
Is death instantaneous?
death is the separation of body and soul. The two are either united or divided, so it is instantaneous. However, separation of the soul from the body might not occur as soon as the heart stops (clinical death). It might not be readily apparent when that moment is.

Those who reject the Magisterium, grasp at straws seeking its replacement.
