    The church’s teaching on marriage has always been that it is indissoluble. As we read in Matthew 19:6, “so they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” While annulments can be granted, those who divorce then remarry are living in de facto adulterous relationships, according to the church. This violation of the sixth commandment is, according to Catholic belief, a serious sin. It does (and should) preclude such individuals from receiving the body of Christ until they repent.

    Despite this, the Synod might recommend relaxing this very serious rule.

    The Synod has been a sham. Faithful Catholic leaders should walk out.

    Heard about this a week or two ago. Things have changed quickly. I doubt that John Paul II would have permitted it to get this far.
