I was kicked out of confession. The priest said he didn’t want to hear my confession. Should I report this?

What is our responsibility in response to the Arizona senate passing the law that allows businesses to refuse service based on religious views. How can we effectively discuss this with others?

I’m a non-catholic, considering the Catholic faith. I have been married, divorced (ex-husband still living), remarried. Both marriages done in a church military wedding. Can I join the Catholic church? What  are my restrictions if I do?

(In regards to the child being more susceptible to the devil’s temptations)
