I had a few questions concerning divorce and re-marriage and a few other things. My stepdad got a divorce and re-married my mother. Is this a sin? Some people have told me that a man can get a divorce but can’t re-mary. I’m a little familiar with the Catholic view on divorce but definitely not the most knowledgeable. Just a little background information on my dad: I don’t think he prays daily or much at all, doesn’t really care about the Church teachings, barely goes to mass (which affects me), doesn’t receive communion or show much interest in confession, and his favorite excuse to not pray is “I don’t have enough time” or “God will save me if He is truly the loving God I think He is”. My father also isn’t very educated on the RCC and doesn’t allow me to go in depth when I try to talk to him about church teachings. If he wasn’t my dad I would have by now snapped on him because he acts like the only sins are killing someone and stealing. “Dallas, I never lie, cheat, or steal”. I really love him and want him to be saved because he commits venial sin (cause he doesn’t know what he is doing is wrong) frequently. I just have no idea on how to get him to listen to the church or even me at this point. He always put God after our family and work. He works really hard and does night shift so sleep can’t hurt but I always try and get him to go to mass and he usually declines. My patience is running low because of the promises he made to take me to mass every 1-2 weeks if I kept my grades up (which I have been), he would let me attend RCIA if my good grades were consistent, and that he would not pester me about praying (because apparently there is such thing as praying too much). How do I get him to return to the church and be devout? He shows no interest whatsoever at this point in time to even go to mass. Sorry if this post is a little choppy, I’m kinda sleepy.
PS My dad is a baptized Catholic
