Everyone here knows how to blindly proof-text, but when it comes to actually thinking about anything in a critical fashion, well, that won't happen.
For someone who has just taken the SATs, I would have expected you to know what words like 'dialogue' and 'discussion' meant. Perhaps I was mistaken in making such a mediocre assumption.
I'm going to pretend like you're a big boy and remotely intelligent, and see if you can figure out why what you've just posted has no bearing whatsoever on what I said.
willy nilly by people on the internet who are semi-literate about what they think certain canons say and how they think certain canons should be applied
Christ won people over with love and compassion, not with rules, regulations, spewing Scripture in their faces and judging them. The unrepentant becomes repentant when they see and experience the love of Christ and develop a relationship with Him.
Some unrepentant sinners are unrepentant because they defy the Church and her authority. Others are unrepentant because they have been ostracised, discriminated and hated. They are forced out of a relationship with Christ (from their perspective) and thus are unaware of their sins. A person living in darkness cannot see the stains on their own garment. Thus, how can they acknowledge the filth they do not see? Only when they begin to step into the Light, can they see how filthy they are.
