Thats true, children don't understand so then it could be said all those who do not understand are also children.
Matthew 18:1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and said, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” 2 And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, 3 and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 “Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 “And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me; 6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble

The Romanians have a saying "The insane, the drunk and children say the truth."
Funny, the tribunals and their canon law point out that children of such an "invalid" marriage are "legitimate." How so? A counterfeit bill is never worth anything in reality. A store front preacher can never confer holy orders. Yet we are told that an invalid marriage produces legitimate children. How? It never was a marriage, hence all the years the couple lived in fornication (and that of course, is what it is, according to the principles of the tribunal).
If it was valid enough to produce legitimage issue, it is valid enough as a marriage that no man should put asunder.
Btw, on the original forum an ADULT child of a dissolution states what her parents dissolution resulted in: she sees no reason to get into marriage when her parents after 26 years was judged a lie.

As I said, hypocrisy is the tribute vice pays to virtue. If that qualifies....
Seems you proclaimed yourself to be something. Doesn't this insinuate Latin’s are not Catholic? Do you miss the lack of Charity in that?
No, I proclaimed something for my Church: the One, Holy, CATHOLIC and Apostolic one.
I don't insinuate: I come right out and say that ultramontanist and legalist strands that produce the Latin marriage tribunals are not what was believed everywhere, at all times, by everyone, and hence not Catholic.
I'd have to leap frog over the charity in labeling Orthodox non-Catholics, lumped with the Protestants, Jews, Muslims and Atheists first.
I was told that I should kow tow a party line that I will not subscribe to, nor do I see it in the fine print of the rules that I have to buy legalism's take on this, or other things. It's Mr. Keating's dime, but I'm not for sale.
Then bend it to Jesus.

Proselytization abounds. Reconciliation is the only way to go.
That road is not paved in denial.
Not to? but aren't you?
1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts; and always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, with humility and fear.
It's hard to be humble when you belong to the Orthodox. I fear I will not do her justice.
The posts stated that Orthodox had departed from the Faith of the Fathers, and offered sanctimony as proof.
Those who know what they are talking about.
Well in your post there are fingers pointed about pride and hypocracy and you know what they say about pointing a finger.
You forgot sanctimony.
Why ultramontanists and legalists take such pride in anullments baffles me, especially given the current practice.
Ah good, license to be honest.
'tis the season....
