We know that it clearly was not a Catholic ceremony
which means that in the eyes of the Catholic church he has never been legally married.
Once again you talk out of your blow hole. Protestant wedding is viewed just the same as Catholic wedding by RCC. Perhaps I should rephrase this so even you can understand this simple concept “it’s all kosher”.
When I say "do this to them", I mean first they said this document from the court was acceptable and now it is not.
As far as the civil wedding goes this document most certainly is but since you mentioned a Methodist priest you must clarify. What’s a big deal to obtain in writing a simple statement testifying that you have never been married in Methodist church instead a ******** here? This simple statement would make your problems go away and make your life lass complicated.
Maybe in the future something can change but it appears this wedding at the end of June is not going to happen.
It certainly won’t not the way you take care of your affairs, besides you haven’t mentioned premarital counseling yet, that takes some time too you know.
I never said I was unwilling to be baptized, it just wont be possible in this time frame and I would have to have other things like confirmation,
With this statement you prove yourself to be a troll once again; a little knowledge on the subject at hand goes a long way. Let me explain:
1) The only requirement that you have to meet in order to have a wedding in CC is to have the sacrament of baptism.
2) As an adult joining the ranks of CC you would receive three of the sacraments the baptism, communion and confirmation all at once.
Besides having not been confirmed only disqualifies you from certain duties you may or may not perform in CC. As far as having a wedding there’s no problem but you cannot be someone’s Godfather. To do this you do have to be confirmed.
You would be wrong, the catholic church only views people who are married in a catholic church as married before God.
Not true, a Catholic can be wed in an Orthodox and Protestant church and his marriage recognized by RCC as lawful wedding if he/she receives a permission from the bishop. There are plenty of people who want to get married with people of different faith (Love is Love and one can’t help who he may fall in Love with) and not change their faith as a result hence the provision.
I'm not so sure you know - it was told to me (not being Catholic) that any marriage before God disqualifies you in their eyes.
Utter BS but I’m somehow not surprised by this kind of statements coming from you and your sidekick Harry.
Probably depends on the interpretation of the priest that's handling the licence, anyway
There’s only one interpretation. Was he or was he Not previously wad in the church which would make it a lawful marriage in the eyes of the RCC. If he was, was the marriage annulled? Those are very important questions that need to be answered. Same as in civil ceremony you can’t be married twice. Without divorce papers no city hall will perform this ceremony same applies here and no amount of donation (a bribe if that’s what you prefer to call it) will change that but I’m sure it will be gladly received.
So to you and Harry or any other moron calling for a bribe; God Blass your kind souls my sons and daughters for your generosity, thanks to you the roof in need of repairs will get fixed after all. Lord sure works in the mysterious ways indeed. LOL
