April 18, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Homosexual groups are seeking the prosecution of a Spanish bishop after he gave a sermon repeating the Catholic Churchs teaching associating the gay lifestyle with the suffering of hell, and then an interview in which he endorsed psychological treatment for homosexual behavior.
Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Plà of the diocese of Alcalá de Henares began the brouhaha on Good Friday earlier this month, when he gave a sermon on the death of the soul as a result of sin.
Referring to various kinds of sinful behavior, including adultery, theft, and failure to pay wages to workers, Reig Plà added homosexual behavior to the list as well. With regard to each example of sin, the bishop spoke of the act itself, and the resulting destruction of the soul.
With regard to homosexual behavior, Reig Plà said: One must not corrupt people, not even with false messages. I would like to say a word to those people carried away by so many ideologies that end up failing to properly guide human sexuality.

Liberal outrage. A reliable indicator thaty somebody’s telling the truth.

And the religious persecution continues. I see the modern day homosexualists as the current equivalent of Herod Antipas and his wife/niece/sister-in-law Herodias. And the ones who speak out in favor of the Biblical truths concerning issues of family and sexuality as the modern-day John the Baptists. Question is are we willing to get beheaded for it?
1. Excellent comparison.
2. I can't think that I have that backbone. I would WISH that I had. I probably would take beheading over torture. It SEEMS quicker. How LUCKY we are NOT to have to make decisions like that. No, it's not luck, is it? It's the will of Our Lord. Thank you, Lord.
Indeed. It makes me wonder if indeed Franco was truly so much worse than the socialists that run it nowadays.
Indeed. No such thing as luck. But the days of religious freedom for Christians in the west are numbered. Didn’t we fight the Nazis and the Soviets because we as a nation believed in religious liberty at one time?
And pray for the soul of Edmund Campion.
