Sexuality laws?
« on: February 27, 2010, 10:27:31 PM »
today at catechism class we talked about Orthodox cannons.  when marriage came up, a person asked about how the Catholics have laws about sexuality and do the Orthodox.  my priest said yes.

I don't want any graphic details, but just explain why the Orthodox church would have laws and rules regarding sexuality?

Because some things that people like to do are not conducive to spiritual growth.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.
