All of my mom’s questions left me asking my own: does inter-faith marriage serve to heal some of the fissions within the Church by demonstrating that love indeed “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” (I Corinthians 13:7)?I could pick up almost any magazine and learn “ten tricks to meet the man of my dreams” or “how to be the one guys want.” So then how do I reconcile society’s enduring fear of being alone with Christ’s instructions to “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God” (Matt ) in order to be a worthy recipient of His gifts?In the best cases, the people involved had veto power; that is, neither one had to accept the match. We vainly imagine this power of choice is the same as freedom, but if we have no basis on which to choose other than our subjective urges, transient likes and dislikes, and fantasies based on movies, novels and occasional glimpses at internet pornography, then choice is not freedom but bondage: bondage to the ideals of a sick culture and the passions of a fallen mind.
