Wait a minute, wait a minute!

Snap out of it!

I decided I'm not going to shut up regarding the truth...
.
"...the Congregation took note of the distinction commonly drawn between the homosexual condition or tendency and individual homosexual actions. These were described as deprived of their essential and indispensable finality, as being "intrinsically disordered", and able in no case to be approved of (cf. n. 8, $4).
.
In the discussion which followed the publication of the Declaration, however, an overly benign interpretation was given to the homosexual condition itself, some going so far as to call it neutral, or even good. Although the particular inclination of the homosexual person is not a sin, it is a more or less strong tendency ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil; and thus the inclination itself must be seen as an objective disorder.
.
Therefore 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." - LETTER TO THE BISHOPS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ON THE PASTORAL CARE OF HOMOSEXUAL PERSONS

Thanks to Ignatius Insight Scoop for the critique of the Obama group hug of the gay community yesterday, I don't feel so alone...
.
After so much propaganda, mythology, falsehoods, spin, social pressure, educational programs, television shows, movies, and, now, presidential public relation campaigns, there are still some of us who believe that "homosexual acts [are] acts of grave depravity", they "are intrinsically disordered", they "are contrary to the natural law", they "close the sexual act to the gift of life", and they "do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity." I, for once, still believe, in the words of the Catechism, that "under no circumstances can they be approved." And I also believe, just as strongly, that those with deep-seated homosexual tendencies "must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided" (CCC, pars. 2357-9). - A couple of thoughts about Obama's "Hey, You're Gay, Hurray!" Day

Yeah - It ain't over 'till the fat lady sings.

    "All homo, all of the time" -- didn't someone once suggest that the blog be renamed something like that?

    It seems to me Obama is going after everything Catholic. It seems to me there's an antichristic reason for that.

  5. This will not end well, I'm afraid. Gird your loins.

    Just remember who wins at the very end.

    Can I still be allowed to harp on endlessly about the sinful nature of birth control?
    No one believes it's a sin either anymore.
