I think that CM could do its members a favor by clarifying these questions. We often times hear that a person may have decided to answer a question a certain way because of past behaviors, so why not preface each of the questions by something as simple as "Regardless of your opinions and/or behaviors in the past, do you now accept Church teaching regarding..."? This is not a perfect example but I think some of the ambiguity could be removed by rephrasing the questions. A comment box could also be provided so that each member could explain their answer if they so choose.
It might also helpful to provide a bit of instruction on some of the questions/teachings. For example, I honestly think that some members think that the "Papal Infallibility" means the pope never sins and can proclaim 2+2=5.
If you read my profile you'll see I have a child but was never married. If I were to answer yes I accept the churches teaching I'm viewed a hippocrite, if I answer no I'm being honest (cause I love my daughter and if I had to do it all over again I would). Take time to get to know the person. Clearly you're a person with sound reasoning, a great heart, and good values. You'll be able to easily discern the contenders from the pretenders.
Good Luck and God Bless.
Honesty, personality, and character shouldn't be overlooked.
I like the 7 faith questios you avoid starting up with someone who has different expectations about the relationship...there are women on CM who also do not agree with the church's teaching on pre-marital sex. I am on other catholic dating sites and the lack of faith questions forces me to ask someone via a message their stance so we can enter the relationship with the knowledge up front. I use the answer to the faith questions as part of my search criteria.
