US Anglican-Catholic dialogue discusses homosexuality

Catholic World News - March 14, 2011

The Anglican-Roman Catholic Theological Consultation in the USA met recently to discuss homosexuality and moral discernment.

“One of the primary tasks of this round of dialogue is to examine what has led our churches to come to very different conclusions regarding the morality of certain actions, especially in the area of human sexuality,” said Bishop Ronald Herzog of Alexandria (Louisiana) . “We also acknowledge that we agree on many other moral questions. I have been impressed by the way in which both sides have been listening to each other with a spirit of patience and generosity as we search for common ground on these vexing moral issues.”

    What is there to discuss? Homosexuality is intrinsically disordered. People who can stop it, should; those who can't, should get help (although they may have to search to find a psychologist who realizes that they have a problem).
