Uhhh...What did you want him to say? Did you want him to give you a round of applause? Buy you flowers? Throw a party? Marry you on the spot?
It's not like he was merely picking on homosexuals. He would say that if you were engaging in ANY sin, be that sin premarital sex, procuring an abortion, adultery, stealing, doing drugs, being an alcoholic, etc. The job of a priest is to guide people to Christ and discourage people from sinning because sin separates people from Christ.
He's mad because the priest didn't toss out Catholic and Biblical teachings and praise his decision. A priest isn't going to do that. If he wants that, find any gay pride group, and they'll celebrate his relationship with open arms.
To have my faith leader view me that way, just because of one piece of the way that God made me, and to think that one part is responsible for the destruction of my human dignity, it just didnt I cant even begin to describe the mental conflict that it creates, Legacy told the Hatchet.
I think the priest is obviously aggravating his conscience because he can't just disregard what he said and walk away, he has to remove the priest completely.
How long before we become like Sweden and part of the Bible and Church teachings become hate speech? We'll be like China where we have a "Patriotic Catholic Church" who has to tow the party line.
They could just quit the Catholic Church and go Episcopalian. The ECUSA celebrates homosexuals, having elevated to bishop at least one openly gay man who left his wife and children to be with his male partner. The ECUSA even seized property of parishes that didn’t want to go along with gay pride. It’s perfect for Legacy and Bergen.
