    Where are we going? This is promoting a sinful lifestyle… Are we crazy. I have always loved my Catholic faith, so i am shocked at this response! What about the children…?…2 Daddy’s ..2…Mama’s ? We are going to give the okay to
    corrupt children by allowing them to be adopted by homosexual couples, and further confuse them. Does sin mean anything anymore?????

    It’s people like you are destroying this world. It is not a “sin” to be gay, although, it IS a sin to judge others.

    Also, as Jesus had said: “You must love thy neighbor as yourself”. So shuttup if you have nothing nice to say

  • Frank

    No that would go starkly against Gods will and created order. I think the pope is simply taking the temperature of the church to determine what they should teach and focus on.

    Its not a sin to have SSA attractions but its is a sin to act on them.

    “Open thy mouth and judge rightly.” Book of Proverbs

    Admonishing the sinner is the first work of Christian Mercy. – It is not
    merciful to see two homosexuals comfortable with unnatural sin and say nothing.

    As Jesus said, “Go and SIN NO MORE!”

    Seriously? You’re going to choose Proverbs 31 as your out of context justification for judging someone else’s sin? The first half of that proverb is all about speaking up for the oppressed minority – for ‘the least of these’. The second half of that proverb is about a virtuous woman – who ironically was quite often among the least of these in biblical times. Puleeze. Nowhere in scripture does it say that the Almighty Creator of the Universe needs YOUR help to convict anyone of a sin.
    And your second verse reference…the becoming all too overused “Go and SIN NO MORE!” (emphasis completely yours)…how conveniently you and those of your ilk skip over the portion where Jesus illustrates who may condemn the adulterous woman of her sin…it is the One among them who is without sin. Is that you? Is it me? I’m pretty sure not. So pipe down and back off. How about if you focus on what you were asked to do – Loving your God, loving your neighbor as yourself, and sharing the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel with the ENTIRE, WHOLE world.
    It’s all complicated because we try to do God’s part instead of our part. Love wins. We just need to get out of the way. Be blessed.

    The only thing we need to give children are guardians who love them wholeheartedly and have their best interests at heart. Who keep them out of harm’s way and teach them to love and to respect everyone regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, or any other qualifying criteria that might make you scoff.

    I doubt there’s ever been a child who was ‘harmed’ because a Mommy loved a Mommy, or a Daddy loved a Daddy… unless, of course, that child’s bigot parent taught them to also fear what they don’t understand.

    Margie I love some of the things you said… I think we could tell the pope and bishops that we want to minister to gays and lesbians by reminding them of God’s unconditional love. That whenever they find themselves feeling like the “least” or fear for the less than God’s love for their children we will stand by their side and help the world to see that they are not alone or abandoned. We need to remember the promise of Jesus that whenever we stick up for, or sand in solidarity with the least of our neighbors we do it for Jesus!

  • The Church’s teaching on marriage and family life is good but is poorly communicated because it tends to come across as judgmental pontifications. Rather than fulminating anathemas to persons who have sex outside of marriage, or married people using contraceptives, the Church should preach the virtues of chastity and nuptial commitment. But this will be impossible to do as long as the hierarchy of the Church remains patriarchal and projects an image of male hegemony.

    Welcoming of divorced and separated persons is fine but patronizing. Exclusion from receiving communion should be explained as a sacramental sign rather than as a sanction. Any opportunities for membership and participation will remain confusing and ineffective until the sacramental restrictions are better explained. Same comment applies regarding the pastoral care of gay people.

    Current issues of family life cannot be resolved as long as the Church portrays the patriarchal model as normative. Having a male-only hierarchy is not a matter of faith and is increasingly becoming an obstacle to evangelization and restoring the original unity of man and woman in both the domestic church and the universal church. Celibate women should be ordained to the priesthood as soon as possible (clerical celibacy is a separate issue). My experience is that most Catholic men will continue trying to exercise male hegemony as long as we cannot have women priests, with disastrous results for family life.
