Either way, the Church would have had to issue something allowing the marriage. Whether she was Mr. hitler's cousin or niece, Isa's statement holds true.

Then you really know nothing of the Catholic Church as well as being in the dark about this particular bit of history.
Sic Maria dixit +November 16, 2011. In error, of course. Again.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

This thread is not only off topic now, it is personally antagonistic. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

i've seen worse, unfortunately :(

True. And I'm no perfect person either. Far from it. I've said many things of which I'm not proud. All I'm saying is, it's kind of sad that these things devolve this way.

Lord help us.

You are fine.  I am always working to try to do better.  Sometimes I don't succeed... :)  But then I just have to go again and see how it works.  You would not discourage me from dusting off and having another go, on a personal level...So the same thing applies here.  We just dust off and have another go at it!!

I can't always agree with you but I am beginning to appreciate your contributions more in the sense that I "see" a bit more than the black and white of your words in your thinking.  In some ways that is what all the repetition is about...getting to know others better.  In the sense that we seek similar spiritual goods from the same Trinity [at least I think we do] then it is good to be able to talk about it.
