They will let the clergy get polluted by allowing gays and pedofhiles within the churches rank but by God they will not allow them to get married. The church must draw the line somewhere. Having anul sex with children is okay and should not be any reason to question who you are as a church but we will fight for preserving marriage.
The catholics will vote in droves for Obama and all that he stands for (too numerous to itemize here and now) but gay marriage is out of the question. The church must draw a line somewhere.
If the catholic church could find a way to make money on the deal, the pope would conduct the ceremony. Maybe they could do it on bingo night.
“They will let the clergy get polluted by allowing gays and pedofhiles within the churches rank but by God they will not allow them to get married.”
Just like we’re the only ones to hold the line on contraception? Never happen.
Sheesh! Any thread about something good the Church is doing brings out the Catholic haters in droves. Why don’t you all take a deep breath and go back to Westboro Baptist Church (which, btw, is not truly Baptist but uses the name only because anybody can call themselves Baptist)?
“Gay marriage” is going to be the thing that will be used to silence and illegalize the Church in both Europe and the US. The Obamacare oppression doesn’t really need to get going. Now that all these countries have legalized gay marriage, becuase most people (Catholic, Protestant or agnostic) think that if something is legal under Caesar, it’s moral and legitimate, when Caesar comes after the Church on this issue, there will be no support.
And I think many people on FR, I hate to say it, would be cheering on the destruction of the Church. But we’re your only hope, so don’t be too hasty.
