You would date outside your race, amirite?
@Frank_n_Furter I like black dudes and gingers.

Thank goodness someone else said it. I thought I was the only one who liked gingers.

A person has the right to end their life, amirite?
@AtheisticMystic It is letting us do what we want, it's just preventing what we want to happen from happening. Actions are free...

By that logic, we would never be allowed to sin or turn from God. By interfering with the results He is still interfering with our actions/our actions would mean nothing. We would be puppets. If the action doesn't do anything, there was no point in it. Disallowing us from doing what we want, having that come into fruition, that's still controlling us.

@AtheisticMystic He'll let you do whatever you want, but he doesn't have to let our actions have the desired effect.

But that's still not letting us do what we want. That's just an illusion of free will. That's still forcing us to go along with His will.

@AtheisticMystic Yes. In fact: http://amirite.net/613975

God could do anything, but He doesn't. He's not going to change the results of our actions if our free will is that it not happen. So, He'll let you pick up a crayon and start drawing but He won't let the crayon touch the paper? Yeah, that's definitely interfering with our free will, if He won't actually let you do it.

@AtheisticMystic He can prevent my death without interfering my free will. He can let me shoot myself in the head, but then he can...

He's not going to interfere with your decisions. Yes, He could do all those things. But He'd still be interfering with your life and your decision even if it's not direct. He's not allowed to stop you from pulling the trigger but He can stop the bullet? So He can let you make the choice, but not allow/change the results or consequences?

@AtheisticMystic If God can end my life, he can also choose to thwart my suicide attempt. If God doesn't want me to kill myself...

But then God would interfere with your free will, which He does not do. He could stop you from doing anything, but He won't because you have to make your own decisions. He gave you free will so that you could choose to return His love and friendship. Turning away from Him is sinning, but because true love is a choice, He won't take away your choice. Only God has the right to end human life, because He gave it to us. That's part of why it is wrong to murder. We did not create that life, God did.

@AtheisticMystic By that logic, my mom should be allowed to kill me.

No, because people who say this usually believe in God and therefor believe that God gave you life and only God can end it.

In the past we call it miracles, now we call it science, amirite?
Doing drugs is bad, amirite?

When people use the phrase "doing drugs" they usually mean doing illicit drugs or abusing prescription drugs, so everyone who's saying "what about pharmaceuticals?" you are intentionally misconstruing what OP was trying to say and you know it.

This is what the Catechism states:

This divine pedagogy appears especially in the gift of the Law. God gave the Law as a “pedagogue” to lead his people towards Christ. But the Law’s powerlessness to save man deprived of the divine “likeness,” along with the growing awareness of sin that it imparts, enkindles a desire for the Holy Spirit. The lamentations of the Psalms bear witness to this” (CCC 708)

I also don't think your quote was spot on in the Catholic Bible.

@Neighbor All Old Testament law is irrelevant, though the Ten Commandments can be called the manifestation of a few words...

Can I just put what it says in the Catechism?

This is what it says under Old Law:

CC 1963... It provides a teaching which endures for ever, like the Word of God.

The New Law of the Gospel:

CC 1968 The Law of the Gospel fulfills the commandments of the Law. The Lord's Sermon on the Mount, far from abolishing or devaluing the moral prescriptions of the Old Law, releases their hidden potential and has new demands arise from them: it reveals their entire divine and human truth.
