I am still waiting for a logical argument laying out a distinction between the modern annulment process and the reality of divorce upon grounds as laid out by our Greek brothers at http://www.denver.goarch.org/offices/registry/forms/Divorce.pdf
Americans have a greater tolerance for divorce than practising Catholics in Europe. The thing is that divorce in my legal system entails the dissolution of marriage but not always the division and exmission of the divorced partners of marriage. On the other hand, in the past up to 1945 in Poland, the separation of table and bed, as foreseen in Catholic Canon Law, entailed a greater economic separation and division of property but the bond of marriage was upheld. The fact is that even in Europe, in our continental system the definition of marriage, annulment and the dissolution of marriage differs in each national legal system, because of the juridical tradition.
It seems to me that the fact, that the canon law's higher instances are Italian is the reason for this annulment drive. As a test case, Poland and Italy have identical anti-abortion laws yet(!) Poland under this regime has c.500 legal abortions yearly, while Italy has 25.000. Poland has about 36 million people, Italy 60 million. Although, the number of sexual assaulted females in Italy is 0,6% of the population while 0,2% in Poland.

It's interesting. I am old enough to remember when a divorce of one of the candidates for a major political party's Presidential nomination was one of the factors which was held against him in 1964.

Twelve years later, in 1976, and in 1980 when he was finally elected, Ronald Reagan's divorce was a non-issue. Things in America changed dramatically in that short period.

Hmm, I once read a brochure from the 1930's written by a Jesuit that berated the United States for immorality and the promotion of divorce.

Actually, we have the present occupant because of divorce: both in the democrat primary and the general elections, Hussain's opponents were done in when their divorce records were publicized.  During the last Republic primary, the comment was made that the Mormon (Romney) was the only one with one wife, and McCain's divorce came up in the general election.

It helped that by 1976 Reagan and Nancy had been married forever, and so publicly (the GE Family theatre or some such thing), and the fact that all of Ms. Wyman's marriages before and after Ronnie didn't add up to the amount of time she remained married to him.

Before the War, Jesuits seemed to not like the British. I once read a tract in an old-book store, by a French Jesuit from the 20th century, in which he called for Catholics to pray against the imminent Russian-English Orthodox-Anglican world empire, which with the laicite France, would destroy Catholicism.

Well, Mary often insists that, since we are not in submission to the Vatican (or, as it phrases it, "in full communion with the see of St. Peter"), we have nothing to offer, yet we offer her (and others) what the agents of their "magisterium" stamp as real, I guess in terms of both.

I read what you writ quite fine, which is what infuriates you so (only on occasion is your posts incomprehensible and indecipherable, in which case I ask for clarification).  And I am spot on. 

I'm sure the Vatican wouldn't want me to speak to their catechumens, but that's not a bar to stating what the Vatican believes-even when that is contradictory-by using its own words. I'm not seeking the Vatican's imprematur, and since even if your supreme pontiff spoke to me personally ex cathedra would mean nothing to me, its imprematur means nothing as to its veracity, just to its authority to represent your "magisterium."
