Today I had the following letter published in the Montreal Gazette:
It is difficult to understand why Pope Benedict would choose Christmas week to launch another broadside against the way gay people live.
According to the Pope “saving” humanity from homosexual behaviour is as important as saving the rain forests. So what are homosexuals supposed to do? Remain celibate until they die? We know better now how difficult maintaining celibacy is even with vows. Or should homosexuals try to change into heterosexuals? That is even more absurd.
I’m a Catholic but I do not accept this homophobic teaching. Neither do my friends. It seems to me speaking up is one way to change it.
Do you agree?
