I mean, the article is full of errors, but it makes its main point: the Catholic Church teaches that homosexual sex is an "intrinsic moral evil," and is opposed to it, under any conditions, for anybody.
Now and forever, Amen.
Gay marriage has been primarily about forcing people to APPROVE of homosexual acts, and secondarily about healthcare benefits.
I didn't get that memo.
Time-Lies-Warner-Turner Media has insisted God has been dead since the 1960s. Pretty intolerant of them.
RE: : Loving the Sinner Is Still Intolerance
Well, at least TIME is open about their agenda -— JUST ACCEPT THE SIN and CELEBRATE IT.
But then, if you accept the sin, what the heck is there to tolerate?
You only tolerate something you disagree with...
Which in essence means the word “tolerate” has lost its meaning.
Suck a joke of an article from a naive closet homo.
“given our awareness today that homosexuality is as biological as heterosexuality, and that homosexual relationships have proven as valid and socially enriching as straight ones”
As biological, even though it has been proven to not be genetic, and is a biological dead end?
As valid, even though it serves zero purpose?
As socially enriching, even though it has correlation with several mental disorders, ends one’s genetic line, increases the chances of contracting potentially lethal diseases, and is pretty much rejected by over 85% of the world as disgusting?
Yeah, great article, doofus.
“How, for example, can the Catholic church declare homosexuals disordered and their lifestyle an intrinsic moral evil, yet expect us to applaud its love for gays somewhere beneath all that homophobic bigotry? “
It’s a Christian, thing, Time - you wouldn’t understand.
At the end of their days, a lot of people are going to be shocked to learn there is a God, He does have standards and His Son offered each of us an amazing salvation for the willing.

Loving the sinner is tolerance, what it isn’t is acceptance.

Silence on the matter will be construed as intolerance.
No vice however squalid and nasty is without defenders as Padgett proves.
This sodomite Padgett does not understand love. We love those involved in homosexuality (in the same way that God so loved the whole world) ... therefore we point out to them that homosexual conduct is depraved, and evil, and sinful ... and we call them to repentance and conversion to Christ.
The sin comes when you indulge your homosexual proclivities.
Completely different. Can you not love a person who is an alcoholic? Would you still love one of your children who is a murderer?
That is true in the same sense that cancer is as biological as other cells. It doesn't mean what Tim was trying to twist the words to mean. Biological is not the same as positive. I don't encourage my friend with stage three cancer to celebrate the growth of that part of his biology, any more than I would encourage men who are attracted to men to turn an exit into an entrance.
homosexual relationships have proven as valid and socially enriching as straight ones
I missed that proof. What I have seen is relationships among friends and co-workers that have never in my experience included fidelity and that have never in my experience lasted more than a few years. The best homosexual relationships I have seen have lacked the stability and commitment of the worst heterosexual relationships I have seen.
can we take any religious leader seriously when he claims to love gay people but at the same time demonizes the consummation of their love for each other? How, for example, can the Catholic church declare homosexuals disordered and their lifestyle an intrinsic moral evil, yet expect us to applaud its love for gays somewhere beneath all that homophobic bigotry?
I missed the alleged demonization. Those who commit adultery (another group whose sex lives violate scripture) are not demonized; it's just that their actions violate God's Word. The same is true of homosexuals. This moron does not understand either "demonizing" or love. Which is hateful and which is loving: (a) telling people to do whatever makes them happy sexually (b) advising people to act prudently and in a manner that will allow them to avoid a fatal disease such as AIDS? I don't see a phobia in either approach, but one has an outcome that is hard to describe as anything short of hateful.
“given our awareness today that homosexuality is as biological as heterosexuality”
HUH? Sorry Charlie,
“Studies by Johns Hopkins University, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, a prohomosexual
scientist, Evelyn Hooker, and Masters and Johnson all deny that theres any genetic link. They agree that the connection between genetics and homosexuality is a myth.
I love drug abusers but hate drug abuse. As a matter of fact I display my love toward them by doing whatever is in my power to get them to stop abusing drugs. Am I intolerant and hateful?
