    Not according to the catechism. Amazing how prevalent it is for Catholics to believe falsehoods about what the Church "teaches".

    Catechism:

    1855 Mortal sin destroys charity in the heart of man by a grave violation of God's law; it turns man away from God, who is his ultimate end and his beatitude, by preferring an inferior good to him.

    Venial sin allows charity to subsist, even though it offends and wounds it.

    1856 Mortal sin, by attacking the vital principle within us...

    If I learned YouTube yet, I'd think up a response just to post it in video form.

    I think I see what you're saying, though.

    So some moron on You tube says something and it is automatically true? Get a religious person to say it and I might believe it.

    Seems like you misunderstood.

    The OP made a video expressing his opinion. And, I think he's Catholic.

    Actually I proved it by the catechism and I am a religious person. Whereas you are actually ignorant regarding religion, which I just proved

    For someone who says so many negative things about God and the church, you certainly are not the best example of a religious person. Maybe you can quote from the catechism where it says what you claim.

    the only negative things I have to say about God are when God inflict suffering on people. I think torturing and annihilating people as the Bible promotes is wrong.

    I object to cruelty. Everything else about God I love. God is our father and I make fun of my dad all the time. It doesn't mean I don't love him. I love him but I don't have to agree with him on everything

    Maybe if you understood a little better you would know that God does not torture people. If they refuse to follow the rules they will be removed from the rest of those so they cannot cause problems. Don't believe everything someone in a church tells you. They are premoting their own ideas and beliefs, which may not be correct.

    In my youtube I already said masturbation probably destroys charity under certain circumstances I just know with 100% certainty that it doesn't always do that

    God starved the Israelites with famine until they were commiting cannibalism. God drowned women, children, and babies. I would rather die in a toxic gas attack then die from drowning and I consider it torture. God burned children personally with fire and brimstone and ordered Israelis to commit racial genocide in the Old testament like when he told Joshua to kill all men, women, children, and animals, or God's racism when he forbid Jews from mating with certain ethnicities, when Jesus referred to gentiles as dogs, or when God ordered Israelites to steal land from the people that settled there and kill their babies, making God a blatant obvious baby killer that the Bible proves to be so.

    Perhaps you should get your facts straight before condemning me or violating the rules by calling me a moron. Don't despise me for stating what's in the Bible. I'm just the messenger. Don't hate the player, hate the game. It's God's game by the way. ;) We are merely the pawns.
