It really doesn’t matter where you went to seminary…the fact remains that 1) there are very poor formations going on in a lot of seminaries today (which apparently you have had) and 2) you are not a priest (and I have known many ordained priest who are wrong on a lot of things including their beliefs on confession…primarily the ones ordained since VII) 3) I am too humble to go publicly bragging about who I am or my qualifications…my advice is sound and grounded in Catholic Theology 4) I don’t think you are trying to be deceptive…you are just not informed, educated, or whatever you would like to call it on the subject and therefore you are trying to give good advice, yet you are not able to. “Christ, who offered himself on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins, invites us to turn our hearts away from sin and to be faithful to His gospel of love. If one turns humbly to God, no sin is too great that it cannot be forgiven”…it is very possible for a person under the grip of addiction to go to confession WITH A FIRM PURPOSE OF AMENDMENT and SORROW and a HATRED OF SIN…every time they confess to only fall back into the clutches of their addiction and need to revisit the sacrament…how is that hard for you to understand? Now once out of confession, if they say “hey I am going to do this and just go to confession and it will be ok”…then that in and of itself is the sin of presumption and should be confessed at confession as well…but that doesn’t mean that the the pentinent can’t go and confess the sins to the priest…if they are presumptious…but afterwards all the conditions are within them to make a valid and good confession, they should be allowed unrestricted access to the Sacrament…the problem with you is that you feel everyone who suffers from an addictive type of sin is purposely trying to abuse the sacrament and that is just WRONG.
Oh, and for the record…your defense has holes all in it and it is not coherent…it doesn’t make sense. [edited] …bad theology is bad theology.
