|Also, how do you feel about those who say that they are circing for religious reasons (ok, mainly thinking about Jews here, just cause I dont know what the rules are for Muslims), but have it done in a hospital on the wrong day by a doctor? I only ask cause my friends sister said she was doing it because she is Jewish but then she had it done when the baby was less than a day old, in the hospital, by her OB. Doesnt it not even count then?!?|
One more question (if anyone who knows sees this). Someone told me the other day that the catholic church is against circumcision. Is that true? I hadnt ever heard that before....so I am just wondering.
|...Alexander III decreed (cap. "Licet", 6, "De elect.") that "he, without any exception, is to be acknowledged as pontiff of the Universal Church who has been elected by two-thirds of the cardinals." As late as 1378, Urban VI was chosen, though not a cardinal (consult, however, Constitut. 50 of Sixtus V "Postquam", § 2). A layman may also be elected pope, as was Celestine V (1294). Even the election of a married man would not be invalid (c. "Qui uxorem", 19, caus. 33, Q. 5). Of course, the election of a heretic, schismatic, or female would be null and void. Immediately on the canonical election of a candidate and his acceptance, he is true pope and can exercise full and absolute jurisdiction over the whole Church. A papal election, therefore, needs no confirmation, as the pontiff has no superior on earth.|
