Some questions for Catholics.

A few questions, actually. One, is masturbation considered a sin? If yes, how bad of one? Also, is donating sperm to a sperm bank a sin? I would think not, since it would be used for procreation. However, Catholicism might object to lesbians and gays or single mothers using it.

Completely off topic: I *love* this ergonomic keyboard! My only complaint is that the keys take a teensy bit too much effort to hit.

Well, back in the 60s, the priest talking at the boys sex-ed class said that masturbation was ok as long as you weren't "obesssing" about it or the like.

Can't recall the exact phrasing though.

Comandment #11 (of the commandments 11 - 15 on the tablet that Moses dropped): Thou shalt not jacketh off

Violating this commandment is grounds for you to go to the hot place with all the lava and fire - unless you confess and say a couple of "hail mary's"

>Is donating a sperm bank a sin?

As the song goes, "every sperm is sacred/every sperm is great/if a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate". A sperm bank uses the sperm to increase the population, contributing to the Catholic goal to get the human population up to 200 billion by 2263.

There's an actual book called "The 11th Commandment" by Lester Del Rey, wherein the 11th commandment is "be fruitful and multiply," with a world population of... I think it was 200 billion? Or some really high number. I only read the blurb; my dad owned the book.
