Two recent news reports are making it really hard for me to be Catholic towards homosexuals. We are told to hate the sin but love the sinner. However, when persecution like this occurs to good people, I can’t help but be really ticked off!
In the first instance, a professor, Dr. Mark Regnerus, is being maligned for his rigorous research showing that gay parenting is not ideal. These criticisms are coming from gay rights activists, who provide no scientific rebuttal but just claims that this professor has an anti-gay bias. The second instance is a lesbian who was denied communion at her mother’s funeral, after revealing to the presiding priest that she was living with her partner. Her militant stand that she should get Communion (she also demanded to have two eulogies at the funeral because she claimed the music director said it was okay) betrays the fact that she has no understanding of Catholic theology. There is evidence that, contrary to the media coverage, it was clear to the priest that the woman was not in a state of grace. The priest was actually being kind as, according to St. Paul, she could bring condemnation upon herself by not receiving Jesus in a state of grace. To add insult to injury, the priest’s diocese caved in to the liberal media accusations.
May God give me the grace to continue to treat homosexuals with respect and dignity, despite the bullying tactics of these gay activists, assisted by the biased liberal media!
During WWII, Mussolini and the Vatican worked together on demonizing homosexuals, many of whom were deported to concentration camps where they were tortured and/or murdered. When will the Vatican acknowledge its role in torturing and killing homosexuals in the WWII era?
When will you individuals who continue to distort history start backing up these “claims” with historical documents? The onus is on you to show that the Vatican and Mussolini collaborated on sending homosexuals to concentration camps, torturing and killing them. If you can’t provide solid historical evidence, then perhaps you should stop pushing these myths as fact.
anon is correct here. We desperately need to stop accepting revisionist history simply because it attacks the Church and feels all yummy to do so. The fact is Catholics were the second largest persecuted group after the jewish people during WWII. Additionally, untold numbers of Jews (including homosexuals) were saved by the efforts of the church. Don’t believe the hype the modern media feeds you!
I saw the last post was July….don’t stop blogging brother. I’ve been looking for something like this for some time. I write for various publications and do outreach as well. I’m a convert, an ex (never really ex..maybe more so than ever!) punk and totally dig your material here. I followed and if you start posting again I’ll link this site to my email list and a future article hopefully when i can fit it in. Keep the fight. Feel free to email!
