Did they include pedophiles, bestiality and incest in the happy occasion?

The link does say that they are to be informed by Church teaching. If so, what is objectively disordered is to be rejected.

these people are not traditional Catholics, no more than Harry Reid is a traditional Mormon, nor Clinttoon a traditional Southern Baptist, or whatever he claims to be....

Satan is working thru people to destroy the churches....and he's winning at this point...

the archdiocese currently tolerates this church. hasn’t told them to stop immediately and take that satanic-inspired crap down.

bishops have great power over their area. i know how parishes work, my mom was parish secretary for ten+ years and we were very tight with the priests there.

I just read an article on the influence of Freemasonry in the California New Age movement, and other mystical movements, now moved eastward into churches. I have no idea what the Masons practice are, but the basics are said to be manifested in, now, churches.

As best I have seen, they have a kind of theological philosophy that is based around the idea of “God as architect of the universe.”

Clearly without something that can hold it to code, there is room for lots of mischief!

I don’t even know what to say about this. I suppose if this happened at my parish I would be compelled to throw eggs at the whole thing. That would be pretty much the end of whatever charity I could possibly muster.

I’d be willing to bring back burning at the stake, if that’s what it took to get their attention.

You assume they all hang together under one hierarchy. To whom much is given much is required. Rome looks, Rome acts like the three monkeys, retribution cometh.

And other Protestants protest against gay pride... when will this “collusion” of Protestants make up their minds? Well there is no such “collusion.” They do not hang together under a single earthly hierarchy unlike Rome. Rome needs to be using its resources to at least stop such egregious abuses. It isn’t.

The Catholic Catechism is clear on homosexual conduct. It is an intrinsically disordered evil.

Here’s what Catholic Catechism Paragraph 2357 states:

Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

Even if that wasn’t so, to have a single earthly hierarchy means a special danger when a prominent part of it goes looie. Evangelicals can split off or go to another congregation if they have to. Catholics are stuck with the organization if they want to stay Catholics.

I really do wish the headquarters in Rome would not beat around the bush here, but tell them off, PERSONALLY. Not hoping they will get the hint from a piece of paper that they are obviously ignoring. And it isn’t just Baltimore that is doing this.

If all Protestants are alike, then all Catholics are alike.

This is YOUR church. You need to own it like Catholics try to make all non-Catholics own anything any non-Catholic does.

Which lends itself to the question.....

Why do you celebrate *Homosexual Pride Month*?

Unlike Muslims who do so with their Korans, Catholics don’t kick the Bible down people throats. These folks are not practicing Catholics. Whatever is happening in Baltimore is the work of an errant Parish Priest and he will and must be subject to Church discipline. We are one universal Church, one Truth, and one coherent belief and not some 35,000 screwball brands of Protestantism. The gates of Hell shall never prevail against it.

And Catholics have unmarried gay bishops (and priests).

Your point it?

Dan, some of your stats will likely be needed here.
