Rabbi Yehuda Levin, 60, a Brooklyn rabbi with a weekly radio show who is the official spokesman for the 850-member Rabbinical Alliance of America, told LifeSiteNews, “the fate of the Church might very well hang in the balance” at the upcoming Synod.
Levin was referring to the planned discussion at the Synod in Rome on the Church’s pastoral response to homosexual unions.
According to Levin, who said he was not speaking for the Rabbinical Alliance, “The Catholic Church is a real bulwark at the United Nations and internationally, the premier defender of family and pro-life values.” Orthodox Jews share those values and rely on the Catholic Church as an ally. Moreover, “As things go in the Christian community, they soon go in the Jewish community,” he said.
“Why discuss homosexual unions at all?” Levin asks. “What’s to discuss?” The rabbi said Scripture is clear on the immorality of homosexuality and “true compassion” demands that we call our neighbour out of their sin. - Source
What's to discuss? What's to talk?
Everybody talks and doesn't tell the truth. It's a sin. You can't be married to the same sex. You can't have homo-sex. What's to discuss?
Levin worried that some Catholic leaders are falling prey to a “militant methodology” organized by radical homosexuals that has already forced public schools, governments, and professional bodies such as the American Psychological Association to accept homosexuality as normal. - ibid
That's what we keep telling people and they don't listen... 'militant methodology' - it's like an agenda, a political-sociological movement. Like The Homosexual Network - loosely organized, not so monolithic but highly promoted and propagandized - for acceptance and inclusion. It's happened already. The Church is the last opposition, the final confrontation. The final confrontation. But it's crumbling.
Levin is even appealing to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
Benedict, as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, “served as Pope John Paul II’s spiritual and moral backbone. I would plead with him to step forward and preach the unadulterated truth.”
The truth, he added, is that homosexuality is wrong, and taking a so-called non-judgmental approach to it can only encourage its growth. - ibid
So-called gay-Catholics want to know how they fit in. You know how you fit in? You keep the commandments. You follow Christ. You deny your very self, and follow Christ. There can be no 'gay in Christ'. (Galatians 3:28) God made them male and female...
Chastity means the successful integration of sexuality within the person and thus the inner unity of man in his bodily and spiritual being. Sexuality, in which man's belonging to the bodily and biological world is expressed, becomes personal and truly human when it is integrated into the relationship of one person to another, in the complete and lifelong mutual gift of a man and a woman.
The virtue of chastity therefore involves the integrity of the person and the integrality of the gift.
The integrity of the person...
The chaste person maintains the integrity of the powers of life and love placed in him. This integrity ensures the unity of the person; it is opposed to any behavior that would impair it. It tolerates neither a double life nor duplicity in speech. - CCCWhat's to discuss? What's to talk?
