the bishops and their opponents
By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 21, 2006
Kudos to Amy Welborn for her dead-center analysis of reactions to the US bishops' document on pastoral care for homosexuals.
The National Association of Catholic Diocesan Lesbian and Gay Ministries, she observes, "gives no credence at all to any aspect of traditional Church teaching on this matter." [original emphasis] Which might make you wonder why so many Church leaders continue to support the group's work.

In 1917 Our Lady of Fatima said that God was already too much offended, what does God think now??? Are they afraid to come right out and say, "Stop and think because it's a sin!"

I have been told they believe they can change the church from within. In more charitable moments I think they know the church has the authority and truth and don't want to leave but hope that somehow changing the church will result in a change in truth. In less charitable moments I think they just can't stand the truth and believe that if they can get everyone to say that black is white, that it will really be so. When we "will not bow to the marriage" we join Thomas More in being persecuted.

I have to agree with John, and add this tidbit. The Church is community of believers. When people no longer accept the belief, why do they hang around causing more grief for those who do accept what the Church teaches? Jahu

The inescapable conclusion is that they have more liking for the homosexual agenda than the gospel message.
