A California Catholic Daily exclusive.
The Los Angeles archdiocese website has no resources for those with homosexual inclinations who wish to live according to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Instead, the LA archdiocese has a Catholic Ministry with Lesbian and Gay Persons,” which links to multiple dissident Catholic groups and organizations.
On Sunday, June 26th, St. Matthew Church in Long Beach will host the ministry’s 30th anniversary celebration. “This year our Annual Pride Mass has a special significance since it celebrates our 30 Anniversary as a Catholic LGBT outreach group. The Mass follows Los Angeles County’s two major gay pride festivals.
This year’s mass will be held in the church sanctuary and will be followed with a reception in the parish hall, which will include food, drinks, and an opportunity to celebrate our 30 years together as a community that openly and happily includes all of God’s people—gay and straight alike,” reads the website for Comunidad, the “Lesbian and Gay Ministry” at St. Matthew’s. One of the “two major gay pride festivals,” the Long Beach Pride Parade, which occurred on May 22, included a free group marriage ceremony for homosexual couples. St. Matthew sends a contingent to the parade annually and hosts a booth. The archdiocese gay ministry invites people to attend the 30th anniversary mass via a post on their Facebook page.
In a letter approved by St. John Paul II, the Vatican calls homosexual inclinations an “objective disorder” and emphasizes that “special concern and pastoral attention should be directed toward those who have this condition, lest they be led to believe that the living out of this orientation in homosexual activity is a morally acceptable option. It is not.”
At the 25th anniversary mass in 2011 hosted by Blessed Sacrament Church in Hollywood, Father Brian Doran identified himself as “gay” during his homily. “We gay people are not weak. We are not soft. The process of “coming out,” although unique to each person, demands courage and strength… But then comes the best part: joy when we meet other gay and lesbian people. Joy when we find out there is a whole community to embrace us. That we can be gay and Catholic. We are experiencing that joy this evening…In this archdiocese there are 287 parishes in 120 cities. Most of them
had baptisms today. That’s makes for a lot of infant Catholics. How many of those little ones are gay or will grow up to be gay? A lot! Have we been gay longer than we have been baptized? Could be! There is a whole new generation right behind us. Twenty-five years from now some of them will be here enjoying their lives as full and active members of our church. And undoubtedly they will be thanking God for this evening, for your efforts.” Fr. Doran will again be the homilist at this year’s 30th anniversary mass.
Arthur Fitzmaurice, then co-chair of the archdiocese ministry and currently resource director for the Oakland-based Catholic Association for Lesbian and Gay Ministry also spoke at the 25th anniversary mass, describing how Cardinal Mahony founded the gay ministry in the midst of the AIDS crisis.
Fitzmaurice made news in March of this year at an annual conference for religious educators in Los Angeles when he denounced Church teaching on homosexuality as “abusive” and “gravely evil.” The gay ministry has a history of conflict with Church teaching. In 2012, the ministry’s board members defied their bishop, then Salvatore Cordileone, and refused to sign an oath which would bind them to “strive to clearly present Catholic doctrine on homosexuality in its fullness” and “profess personally to hold and believe, and practice all that the holy Catholic church teaches, believes and proclaims to be true, whether from the natural moral law or by way revelation from God through Scripture and tradition.”
The L.A. ministry lists the Oakland group as a resource despite its obvious opposition to Church teachings.
The Oakland diocese website does not list the ministry as a resource and instead refers people to Courage, an international apostolate which is endorsed by the USCCB. Courage calls its members to “ live chaste lives in accordance with the Roman Catholic Church’s teaching on homosexuality.” The gay ministry does not list Courage as a resource.
On its page for parents of those with homosexual inclinations, the ministry says that “Catholic parents typically experience a lack of knowledge about Church teachings and base their beliefs on outdated Church teachings, stereotypes, misconceptions, and ignorance.”
The gay ministry is heavily represented at the annual Los Angeles Religious Education Congress. This year, according to the CMLGP Facebook page, there were “four sold-out LGBT-affirming sessions… and one with a transgender topic.” The gay ministry was particularly pleased by the “special moment… at the closing liturgy on Sunday when a gay couple and their son helped present gifts at the altar to Archbishop Jose Gomez.”

Do the Archdiocese/Parishes have copies of the Catholic Catechism that they can refer to in order to know Church teaching on homosexuality? If so, are they covered with dust? These groups appear to be making up their own versions of Church teaching, or ignoring it altogether. I am pretty sure that ignorance or disregard for ‘official’ teaching t’aint going to work on Judgement Day!
Is there a difference in the cross of same sex attraction & the cross of CHASTE, disciplined lives & roles God asks of His people? NO. All lives are called to obey God’s commands. Grace works on our souls when we stop rebelling, repent & co-operate with God’s mercy. Dear St John Paul II said, (paraphrasing) SSA is NOT a morally acceptable option yet the C. church is having marches & parties. Should adulterers have a pride march too? Should cohabiting folks come out & seek support? Why highlight this particular sin with celebrations VS confession, Holy Mass & say adoration or a healing service? Doesn’t surprise me that it’s sounds like it has been this way for 30 years! Seems sadly misguided somehow.
Continued…..bear with me, I can’t type. Last line above should say…..Doesn’t surprise me, it sounds like this SSA march/parade/party has been going on this way for 30 years! Sad? Misguided? Hope & pray that this ‘approach’ works to SAVE immortal souls. If not, this may be the longest happiest drawn out march, parade, party conga line (whatever) right into the abyss. God only knows.
Continued…..Truly, GOD only knows why He allows ‘whatever’ with His permissive will. Has the USCCB allowed massive government funding to negate their conscience, due to a conflict of interest?. See 6/21/16 article @ http://www.churchmilitant.com, by Michael Hichborn, title: USCCB confirms funding request to congress includes contraception & condoms. The CRS & USCCB requested– $330 MILLION for USAID and $5.67 BILLION for PEPFAR. This is an example of bad works/seed mixed in with the good works/seed. Can any church request funding at these massive levels and stay unrepentantly faithful? The devil is really in the details. May God deliver us all from the eternal abyss. PRAY!
Continuing………Sky Falling Alert. What is PEPFAR? President’s Emergency Plans For Aids Relief. Why is USCCB/CRS involved? Look @ [PDF]Department of Justice, Peace and Human … – usccb.org
http://www.usccb.org/…/upload/backgrounder-on-hiv-aids-pepfar-2008-05.pdf AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a 5-year $15 billion flagship program. PEPFAR was passed by Congress … USCCB and CRS played a lead role in advocating for these….funds……?
SFA Continued….The Bishop’ s Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is a top grantee winning contracts with USAID in 2015 with Obligated USAID grant funding: $192,814,944 & Share of cooperative agreements: $119,979,743 (62 percent) So the $330 million figure above is a current request for funding. CRS works in as many as 100 countries with a staff size up to 5,000. Core areas: emergency response & recovery, agriculture, health, education, microfinance, water, sanitation, justice & peace building, partnership, capacity strengthening. Search: USAID & USCCB to see more.
Who knew? Did you? The USCCB asked for $5.67 BILLION (of our $$ from the Gov.) for their role in PEPFAR? PRESIDENT’s Emergency (?) Plans For AIDS Relief. No wonder we in the pew are so concerned with the unholy activities & attacks on ‘everything’ Catholic? The bishops are involved in spending $5.67 BILLION on who, where, when, what, how, why = Aids relief? That’s a lot of condoms, treatment, even hospitals @ $5.67 BILLION! Dear God, it appears the USCCB IS compromised, or what I pray.
Who lied and then taught these attendants to mock and offend God while singing, Parce, Domine, parce populo tuo; ne in aeternum irascaris nobis,?
(Spare, Lord, spare your people; lest you be angry with us forever.)
(Let us bow before the avenging wrath, let us weep before the Judge;
let us cry out with words of supplication, let us speak, all falling prostrate.)
( By our wickedness we have offended your clemency, God;
pour forth pardon on us from above, forgiver.)
Hosea 4-6 Douay-Rheims Bible
Well — it is clear that the Catholic Church, and certainly the LA Archdiocese, do not really care about homosexual sexual people. If there was love and Catholic charity in the Vatican’s heart, it would teach only repentance and absolution for the sin of homosexual sex. But it does not.
Instead, by teaching “acceptance” and “respect” and all the other mind numbing pablum that the Church’s limp-wristed priests and bishops give Catholics, what is really said is — go ahead and sodomize each other all you wish, we love and accept you as you are. Blah, blah, blah. And, to emphasize this, there are calls to revise the Catechism and, by some, to “edit” or explain Biblical language. Satan is having a very good time.
I agree St. Christopher. There is no truth in charity being spoken in L.A. The church is neglecting their responsibility in saving souls.
Someone needs to tell them to keep their hands off the altar boys. Dioceses have gone bankrupt from lawsuits over homosexual abuse of altar boys.
Totally sickening. Mocking Our Lord’s Altar with the rainbow flag, a symbol of the Sodomites and their diabolical agenda. There is truly few men left among the clergy who will stand up for the Lord and His Holy Church. Too many prelates want to be the guest of honor at banquets. Too many are closeted homosexuals themselves. Too many have no faith in God. The Church is in very dire straits. Let us who love Christ and His Holy Church pray unceasingly for His Mercy and that He may bless us with good and faithful bishops and priests. +JMJ+
I agree CR, the altar linens (picture caption says from anniversary 25) are not appropriate. I find them offensive & an abomination to be used on a ‘holy’ altar. Mass is about our dear Lord Jesus, not ‘who’ attends. This is just WRONG HEADED PANDERING & should NOT be allowed. May God forgive anyone foolish enough to dishonors the table of the Lord. That tells me a lot about those involved….it’s all about them NOT God. Sad. How does our dear God put up with us? Praise be to God, no rebellion can change natural law & the fact that God rules the universe. Satan learned that.
Was the Orlando massacre an instance of gay-on-gay violence?
Now that Orlando mass killer Omar Mateen’s alleged homosexual lover has come forward to claim Mateen was taking vengeance against Hispanic gays after being badly treated in carnal relations…
Unless, that is, President Barack Obama’s FBI can erase all copies of “Miguel’s” testimony from Youtube and from our collective memories, like it scrubbed out all the Islamic references from Mateen’s 911 call he made from the nightclub…
Now we have gay-on-gay violence as an explanation. Gays are supposed to be the victims here, of course… played the victim card to the nth…
Miami archbishop rebukes Bishop Lynch’s claim Catholics share blame for Orlando massacre
“Each day, recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests. The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their Confreres. Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.” – Church approved Message of Our Lady of Akita
C, Thanks for the warning. CHILLING…….Doesn’t this message seem to be occurring in our time.? Do you know when this message was given? Although I worry for the Church, I know God rules the universe. I trust He will guide His people thru ‘whatever’. But I do like to know how to direct my prayers and lamenting.
From the Pew, Yes, that message does seem to be occurring in our time.
“Only a few Catholics know of Our Lady of Akita but the message, like that of Fatima, is a specific warning of worldwide chastisement. The chastisement threatened is truly terrible – far worse than the possibility of annihilation of several nations prophesied at Fatima. Akita is absolutely consistent with prophecies of Scripture. The first message received by Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa on June 6, 1973, was a call for prayer and sacrifice for the glory of the Father and salvation of souls.” “The second message, August 3, 1973, was for prayer, penance and courageous sacrifices to soften the Father’s anger.”
“The third message on October 13, 1973, the actual anniversary of the final visions and miracle of Fatima is as follows: “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead.” “The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son.” https://olrl.org/prophecy/akita.shtml
C, Thanks for the site & for sharing our Blessed Mother’s message of ‘PRAYER & REPENT’. I’ll keep a copy of this to share. O my Jesus, forgive us our sins…..
Continued……I forgot to say, Praise be to God for the Rosary!
I am not certian I understand. A few weeks ago, a local Jesuit priest fromthe pulpit preached we must have understanding, acceptance, compassion, pride for Gay people> The Center for Disease Control states/declares in it’s publications that 83% of the following sexually transmitted diseases in the US occur among Homosexual/Gay males: syphilis, anal cancer, hepatitis B and C, genital herpes, penis herpes, gonorrhea, gonorrhea of the anus, gonorrhea of the rectum, gonorrhea of the penis, chlamydia of the penis, anus and rectum; gonorrhea of the throat, anal herpes, ocular syphilis, bacterial meningitis, anal syphilis, gay bowel syndrome, frequent diarrhea, papillomun virus, isopora belli, microsporitia, etc.
—transmitted by blood,…
transmitted by blood, semen, genital fluids. Pope Francis asks Catholics to apologize to Gays for this activity? Don’t forget CDC’s admonition that Gays and Lesbians have a higher rate of suicide, depression, domestic violence (triple).The Pope asks me to apologize for the conduct of Gays and what they do to each other.
Why should we have to apologize to homosexuals? They should apologize to the Church for molesting our altar boys.
Why? Because the Archdiocese would lose most of her priests.
The Roman Church passed away 50 years ago with that “council”
Janek, it is always good to keep in mind that that “council” was the Magisterium of the Church speaking in one voice. Thousands of Bishops and the Pope approved the documents of the Council, speaking as the one teaching authority of the Church. Any disagreement with those documents is a disagreement with the Church’s teachings. I assume you didn’t want us to thinks that you disagreed with the Magisterium?
Bob One, it is good to keep in mind that the council was pastoral, a meeting that set out to define no new doctrine. Obfuscating that which is clear is no magisterium that must be obeyed for those who know the truth are called to behave as such. So the pretense that there is an official teaching not to teach – or to teach that which is unclear – is contradictory.
Any promotion of the falsehood that VII sought to teach/define new doctrine is to disobey the council and the Magisterium.
Take the beating stick elsewhere, perhaps to use on those who do not know better. But then it is you who will be responsible for scandalizing the little ones.
J, Too young @ the time, I didn’t understand that ‘council’ until later. Cardinals have reported since, that the intent was never for that much change. Paraphrasing: Appears the ‘council’s’ purpose was hi-jacked by those hell bent on modernizing the CC. Looking back, I still don’t understand why they changed something that was not broken and was so universally beautiful and loved. God only knows why…..
All we can do is retreat to the “new” catacombs for anything we say or do we are called bigots, homophobes, racists, anti-woman, friends if you can’t see it by now that the bishops are with this crowd and they have been since the Second Vatican Council, you are truly blind. A pope who sits in Rome and blames priests for being to “strict” and need mental help, not being a judge of anyone, calling Traditionalists crazy and hurtful, the TLM a thing of the past and so on. Well it starts with him and it will end with him, his papacy has truly been a utter nightmare of gigantic proportions.
J, Sadly, you are so right! Many of the Bishops have sold out thru the USCCB & it’s CRS work. I just read recently they proposed a budget to our government asking for $330 million for USAID & $5.67 billion (that’s BILLION) for PEPFAR. What on earth are they involved in to the tune of $5.67 BILLION dollars, does anybody know? They must be giddy @ the thought of all that money (US tax payers money) for their projects. Churchmilitant reported the funding includes contraception/condoms, confirmed by the USCCB. But what other ‘globalist’ projects are they spending (re-distributing) all that money on? Anybody?
A few days ago the Pope said if priests try to save people by asking questions, then the priests are animals. If the Pope says such things about loyal and Christ like priests, it is no wonder there is a deafening silence in regards to the sin of sodomy. When we pray the Act of Contrition we are supposed to amend our lives and avoid the near occasions of sin. If we keep on sinning there may be a time when it is too late to repent.
By using ambiguous, muddled and unclear (modernist) language, the Vatican II documents can mean different and opposing things to various opinions at the same time. Some theologians have used the phrase “time bombs” which signifies this fact. Example: Latin is to be preserved at Masses, HOWEVER, bishops may opt to adapt. By abandoning Thomastic theology and philosophy to define dogma, a can of worms has opened, and as a result, everyone can interpret theology the way they wish.
…and yet there are those who actually promote the absurdity of having to obey a non-binding self destruction operation. Like those who feel it is to uphold the Constitution to allow for national suicide.
Useful idiots is an apt term.
You really don’t understand how Christianity woks, do you Ann?
Yes she may, better than you, Your Fellow Catholic.
Christianity is about faith and obedience, just as Christ was obedient to the Father. Obedience to the words of the Magisterium (such as those expressed in Vatican II) is worth more than the contrived and twisted reasoning of a Campion or an Ann Malley that excuses disobedience in favor of their own personalist ideas of what the Church should teach. They suppose their reasoning is based on “tradition”. Actually it’s more like “Americanism”—modernist Americanism.
It is “americanism” to raise one’s fist against authority. However it is Catholic and true “traditionalism” to revere the Magisterium, even in matters that one doesn’t agree upon. THAT is obedience Our Father finds most valuable.
Foremost, Campion, is that Christianity is about love, something which the detractors of the Church have lost.
And, jon, OBEDIENCE in all but sin is what Christ expects of us. That is what Our Father finds most valuable. Otherwise Christ would have just obeyed the Pharisees and shut up.
For how else can you explain Christ’s speaking the truth about being the Son of God to the High Priest, the same High priest who desired that He should lie?
Sorry, but you seem intent to create a flock who is desirous of staying within the Temple – even when the Truth is kicked out and crucified. That is not Catholic. That is cowardice.
THat is your flaw Ann Malley: THere is no flaw in what the Magisterium teaches today that touches upon faith and morals. NONE. There is sin in following the Pharisees. But there is no sin in following the Magisterium today. If you claim there is, then you have negated the work of the Holy SPirit, you have negated the faith of the Church that the SPirit guards the Church from error on matters of faith and morals.
It is no negation of the work of the Holy Ghost to acknowledge clear obfuscation, jon. It is rather to engage the Holy Ghost to see what is clearly not what it should be.
That is why you, who does not see clearly, considers such to be a flaw.
Foremost, jon, it is neither loving nor Christian to pretend that it is the Magisterium (the authentic magisterium) to cover up the truth and lie to those who would otherwise be give the strength and support to engage grace to give up grave mortal sin.
But you are correct. Those prelates who wear their priestly garb and advertise themselves as shepherds have absolutely fomented a policy of becoming detractors of the Church. They have allowed themselves to be bought choosing the role of hireling instead of that of shepherd.
No Ann Malley: it is the disobedient lay people who cowardly post castigations against the Magisterium who are the REAL detractors in the Church. They create scandal. ANd what does our Lord say about them? “It is better that a millstone be tied around their necks and cast into the sea” (Luke 17:2).
jon, Your posts are very similar to the misguided/corrupt prosecutor in the story below. You do NOT really care about Magisterial truth or justice. Your posts always come across like you are a member of the silencing gang within the Church. Pope Benedict XVI knows about that gang very well. ..”Pray, that I do not flee, for fear of the wolves!”
Subject: Idaho ‘rape’: Obama prosecutor ‘silencing Americans with threats of arrest’
Yes, it is better for hireling shepherds that a millstone be tied around their neck and that they be tossed into the sea than to misuse their positions of trust and authority to scatter the sheep and lead them to sin.
There is no scandal in calling out wrong behavior, jon. Sadly, you seem to equate facilitating error and corruption as supporting the Church.
You are wrong.
I say Catherine that my posts are NOTHING like what you describe.
Ann Malley: It is you who are wrong. Why? Because there is a procedure for the laity to convey concerns to one’s bishop and to the Holy Father. It is prescribed in Canon Law. Canon Law doesn’t mention anything about posting scurrilous accusations anonymously on a blog, which what you do. Your manner creates scandal, is disobedient, and sinful.
What you say, jon, and what you think you say are two different things.
The sheep are not the source of scandal here, but rather the scandalized. Time for you to stop playing facilitator under the banner of upholding the Magisterium. It doesn’t play out well in light of current example, especially in an increasingly literate world.
Mark Twain, responds to jon…. “Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.”
“To deny that human beings are filled with anti-social passions betrays a denial of reality and a lack of self-awareness. One has to be taught nonsense for a great many formative years to believe it.” –
Yes, jon, it’s very true! Just like that vicious prosecutor, you’ve liberally defended, coddled and embraced every serial killer imaginable, and all while bludgeoning the sheep who do speak up about the serially destructive attacks that are coming from within the Church.
Public scandal requires public rebuke, jon. But nice try punting responsibility.
” Because there is a procedure for the laity to convey concerns to one’s bishop and to the Holy Father.”
Yes, and in many dioceses, that procedure has also been interiorly corrupted …but you already know that, jon. A letter to the bishop is often intercepted by wolves. Next step.. Letters to Rome about corruption in each diocese are sent right back to the same intercepting wolves who are in charge of the hen house…and you already knew that too. Unless there is strong evidence of a faithful bishop then that procedure has little chance at being rightfully trusted after the scandals.
So Ann Malley, Catherine: your efforts are not working. How so? Consider this: What is the difference between your efforts and those of the actual REFORMERS in the Church such as St. Teresa of Avila, St. Catherine of Siena, St. John XXIII, St. John Paul II, and others? The difference is that they were SAINTLY. They reformed themselves first; they didn’t go posting anonymously calling people “wolves,” and the sacraments “garbage.” They didn’t attack bishops and priests scandalously and then hide in their anonymity. The plain truth is that their manner was saintly. And so they changed the Church. Can you honestly say the same thing about yourselves? Repent.
jon, you hide behind your own anonymity to castigate those who would call scandal and obfuscation, scandal and obfuscation.
Unfortunately, you have what seems to be a child’s view of St. Teresa of Avila, St. Catherine of Siena, etc. You pluck concepts out of context and seek to invent your own truth, to include what it means to be faithful.
Perhaps your efforts would be more laudable if you didn’t do precisely what you accuse others of doing, jon. Practice what you preach. To include focusing on reforming yourself and not overreaching yourself to assume others aren’t on a very diligent regimen of reformation. (Just not your regimen. Again, a child’s view.)
That which is made public, to include the scandal of shepherd’s…
…preaching untruth and obfuscation, is to be decried as such. In public, jon.
And if you don’t like being called a wolf, you may consider not behaving like one. But if you choose to behave as such, you will be thought of as such. Perhaps you should ponder “why” you would be called a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Or others you seemingly admire.
Maybe then you can reform your own methods and help those who you now seek to enable or protect from receiving the fruits of scandalizing the flock.
Perhaps the greatest condemnation against those who castigate the Magisterium on these pages comes from Christ Our Lord Himself. He tells the Apostles and to those who will succeed them (that is, the bishops and the popes): “He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me” (Luke 10:16).
….and yet Our Lord told us to judge with right judgement, jon. A cleric, no matter what his rank, who betrays and /or obfuscates the Truth, or behaves in the manner of Judas, is not acting on Christ’s authority, but his own.
He that heareth the prelates of the Church decry Christ as somehow less than charitable because of His clear teaching is denying the one from whom he would gain any authority.
By their fruits you shall know them.
Pray for Pope Francis and our bishops. Thanks be to God, for great favors. Pope Benedict XVI did not ask the sex abuse and un-catechized victims to apologize to the filth that is still running rampant within the Church.
‘Pope resigned to purge “the filth”?’
“Benedict was not prepared to wait for his own death to sweep out the gang who run the place. In one extraordinary gesture, by resigning, he gets rid of the lot of them. But what then? . . .Rivalries between departments, vendettas between individuals, naked ambition, calumny, backstabbing and intrigues are endemic.”
Church teaching does NOT discriminate against anyone. Church teaching will never condone sin. Marriage is between a man and a woman. Pope Benedict XVI said that homosexual adoption does *violence* to the formation of innocent children. Misguided shepherds are working hard to remove not only our country’s borders but also the Teaching boundary borders that help to protect all lives and all souls.

Let us all apologize to the man in the story below. This man, and many others, are being terribly treated, for simply wanting to… not offend God. This man never hurt anyone! Pastoral compassion in the form of false charity is tantamount to a spoonful of honey, laced with a hidden poison. The consequences can be both physically and spiritually deadly, when not counteracted with the full dose of Revealed Truth.

Sin wouldn’t be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately. – Author Unknown
Michael Brown is not a Catholic (yet)! See his response to those who want to conform the Gospel so it includes the sin of homosexual practices. How many parents, out of love, sadly caved in emotionally, instead of saying, “I love you, and I love you enough to never condone sin. How many children emotionally swayed their parents hearts to choose their sinful practices over choosing God? All sin is selfish.
‘Sorry, But We Won’t Rewrite the Bible for Gays and Lesbians’ – by Michael Brown
“Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me” (Matt. 10:37).”
