Action Alert!

wouldn't join any heaven that would accept him as a member

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Dec 03, 2009

Cardinal Lozano Barragan said that active homosexuals will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven, and his remarks were reproduced—often in sensationalized form—in hundreds of media outlets.

This remark, on the other hand, was not widely reproduced:

Barragan's remarks drew a prompt reaction from the Italian gay association Arcigay, which said "yes, it's true, we won't ever get into your heaven, which is a murky and unjust place.”

Think about it: A Roman Catholic cardinal says that someone guilty of gravely immoral acts will not go to heaven, and that’s big news. A homosexual activist says that homosexuals will not go to heaven, and that’s not news. Go figure.
