Yeah, I thought about that too...he may be sly like a fox...because once people, if they do, get into the Word of God and understand the truth, they’ll see what he is REALLY saying and how the media is lying.
I have to say, though, as a non-Catholic, I think Rome really needs to clean up the mess within its ranks regarding the homosexual problem.
I really wish, too, he would unequivocally state and reiterate the moral position regarding these issues...otherwise, the media will continue to trumpet the lie.
As a Catholic, I agree. Though I think, more importantly, they need to get rid of the homosexual lobby that acts from within or in conjunction with the clergy.
A couple of points:
But I would like to add something else on this: I see that so many times in the Church, outside of this case and also in this case, they go to look for the sins of youth, for instance, and this is published. Not the crimes, alas. Crimes are something else: the abuse of minors is a crime. No, the sins. But if a person, lay or priest or Sister, has committed a sin and then has converted, the Lord forgives, and when the Lord forgives, the Lord forgets and this is important for our life. When we go to confession and truly say: I have sinned in this, the Lord forgets and we dont have the right not to forget, because we run the risk that the Lord wont forget our [sins]. Thats a danger. This is important: a theology of sin. I think so many times of Saint Peter: he committed one of the worst sins, which is to deny Christ, and with this sin he was made Pope. We must give it much thought. But, returning to your more concrete question: in this case, Ive done the investigatio previa and we found nothing. This is the first question. Then you spoke of the gay lobby. Goodness knows! So much is written of the gay lobby. I still have not met one who will give me the identity card with gay . They say that they exist. I think that when one meets a person like this, one must distinguish the fact of being a gay person from the fact of doing a lobby, because not all lobbies are good. Thats bad. If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge him? The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this in such a beautiful way, it says, Wait a bit, as is said and says: these persons must not be marginalized because of this; they must be integrated in society. The problem isnt having this tendency, no. We must be brothers, because this is one, but there are others, others. The problem is the lobbying of this tendency: lobby of the avaricious, lobby of politicians, lobby of Masons, so many lobbies. This, for me, is the more serious problem.
