    Living as "brother and sister" would imply no sex. Has nothing to do with being Kinky. If you're not a catholic, why do you care?

    What's the news? Seriously, this has always been the way for the Catholic Church. As there is NO divorce in catholicism you're always married to the previous "legal" (by state law) spouse.

    Not in Dixie (the South for our non-Muricans friends).:p Philly is north of the Mason Dixon line, so the no sex rule applies.

    Ha your so silly. Do never point out the silliness of the christian faith only of Muslims cause Christians should never be badly thought of. Now your a Christian apologist. The Catholic Church does not need my help to look bad. But when you tell a married couple to treat each other as brother and sister your not in touch with reality.

    Coming from Northern Irish Catholic family I discovered life is far to short to live as a catholic. Just enjoy life and make your own decisions. :)

    This has been the way it has always been in the church but to tell married couples this is just silly. They did not get married to be brother and sister. Poor kids of such a union would the be children of incest?

    I don't really get why people feel the need to identify as catholic when they don't believe in the things catholic believe in.

    As to the topic at hand... meh. This is one of those things that illustrates that faith vs practice are variable.
    but...
    Funny but this is interesting; not being part of the group rarely exclude people from having an opinion (eg. gay marriage, trans-gender bathroom use, gun control, veganism). It's the validity of the opinion that should be discussed. Belonging to the group identified or not may shape your opinion, but that fact alone does not validate or invalidate the opinion.

    There's a difference between rules/practices within a religion (divorce, eating pork, pulling the light bulbs out of the fridge on Friday night, ect) and topics such as gun control that impact everyone. If vegans want to cut out eating everything but tree bark that's their business while I sit over here and eat my big fat steak.

    For the same reason why people feel the need to identify as “Christian” in general, despite not believing the things “Christians” believe in. (Or any other belief system for that matter)

    Yeah have your opinion, but it ain't news. It's stuff that has been around for about 2000 years. You know, even a King of England got pissed off at this just a few years ago.

    Probably because until they are in the situation of falling out of love with their spouses, they didn't realise they did not quite believe in the full Catholic way.

    Look, you can resolve the sanctions against sex in a remarriage as a Roman Catholic if you can get an annulment. There are documents you have to provide and steps you have to take, and it can cost some money, a few hundred dollars, unless you just can't pay anything. So this is the church's position and Catholics already knew it, so it's not like anything has changed (which is the point of reiterating it, probably).

    Granted, the big question is why do some issues (like gay marriage) seem to fall out of the "that's their business" category? And on the flip-side when issues impact both participants and non-participants (like gun control) why is the emphasis on the status quo?

    The government got into the business of marriage, that makes it a public issue. Gun control is absolutely a public issue. Alas, the OP is regarding laws withing a religion, which obviously don't apply to or effect anyone outside of that religion.
