SHOULD THE VATICAN DEFEND GAYS?

June 11, 2011

Today in Rome is EuroPride day.  The gay organization is set to bring hundreds of thousands of people into the streets of Rome with its message of defiance to the Italian government and the Vatican amplified by the presence of Lady Gaga.

Christian homosexuals wrote an open letter to Pope Benedict XVI yesterday, asking the Vatican to defend people who are persecuted for their sexual orientation.  “We ask Your Holiness to condemn violence against lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transexuals and to ensure that criminal punishment for sexual relations between people of the same sex are lifted aound the world.”

Should the Vatican defend gays?

IS THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HOMOPHOBIC?

May 29, 2011

The most homophobic institution on the face of the earth is, without question, the Roman Catholic church.

Some time ago the Roman Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith wrote a letter to all American bishops.  The Congregation was concerned that, apart from homosexual acts, some American bishops were putting too benign an interpretation on the homosexual condition itself.  To dispel such a notion, the Congregation made it clear  that while “the particular inclination of the homosexual person is not a sin, it is a more or less strong tendency orderered toward an intrinsic moral evil, and thus the inclination itself must be seen as an objective disorder.”

So just being a homosexual is an objective disorder .

This is so according to church teaching whether or not homosexual acts follow.

Do you believe this?
