Website Review: Catholic Association for Lesbian and Gay Ministries

A review based on: http://www.calgm.org/

Description

The Catholic Association for Lesbian and Gay Ministries - "CALGM" (formerly the National Association of Catholic Diocesan Lesbian and Gay Ministries - NACDLGM) was formed in 1994. Its self-stated mission reads thus: "Inspired by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and grounded in the Catholic moral and social justice tradition, the National Association of Catholic Diocesan Lesbian and Gay Ministries, as a resource and network, encourages pastoral care with lesbian and gay persons and their families." Unfortunately, what this organization offers is directly contrary to true pastoral care. Rather than ministering to those with same-sex attractions, the NACDLGM only encourages a defiance of the Church's teachings. A better resource for this issue is the Courage website.
