Jesus called only male apostles and as such, only men should be ordained priests.
God may call both men and women to holy orders, and anyone with a calling should be permitted to pursue their vocation no matter what their gender.
Priests should remain celibate. In her wisdom, the Church has taught that celibacy is what is best for those who choose to become priests and that teaching should be maintained.
Celibacy was instituted by man and has not always been the teaching of the church. Priests should be allowed to marry.
Marriage is a lifetime union of one man and one woman. Gay marriage is contrary to God's plan for mankind and should not be permitted.
Marriage is about love. If two people love each other and choose to dedicate their lives to each other, the church should bless and respect that no matter what their agenda. Gay marriage should be permitted.
Reception of Holy Communion is a sign of the unity of the church. Only those who are Roman Catholics and properly prepared should be allowed to receive communion.
Holy Communion is a means of unity. All Christians should be permitted to come forward and share in the sacrament.
I believe the Pope is infallible in all matters of faith and moral practice and that he has direct spiritual authority over me and all others.

I believe that artificial birth control is always a sin - even when used by married couples.
I believe that the decision to use artificial birth control is best decided by couples in serious, committed relationships.
I believe that divorce between two Catholics is wrong and that the church should never recognize the divorce of a married Catholic couple.
I believe divorce is often tragic, but not an unpardonable sin; that divorced people who remarry should be fully welcomed into the church and it’s sacraments.
