Posted on 07/06/2018 5:29:31 AM PDT by C19fan
A growing number of Americans now broadly support equal rights for gay, lesbian and transgender people. Its tempting to view this as inevitable, but less than a decade ago many Democrats, including Barack Obama, didnt even publicly support same-sex marriage. The speed at which L.G.B.T. rights became a mainstream issue, including for many religious denominations, represents nothing less than a dizzying cultural transformation.
What does this revolution mean for the Catholic Church, an ancient institution that thinks in centuries, and holds a view of human sexuality at odds with the shifting cultural winds?

God does not shift his position in accord with public opinion polls. The Methodist Church has been in a civil war over this issue. In the Catholic Church Monsignor Freddy Delgado said that The People’s Church is in conflict with God’s Church.
I don’t care how many homosexual friends someone has or even if they deal with those issues themselves. People have to stand with morality and not the trendy set.
Clearly, the ownership and/or the editor are deviants and are energetically pushing the weird stuff on the rest of us.
And no, the Catholic Church will not "evolve" to accept sin.
If it “evolves” it won’t be the Catholic church any more.
Isn't it time to leave the plantation, Catholics?
Through history enlightened men have decided they knows better than their Creator the purpose and intention of the Creator in how they should live and treat one another. It has not ended well during those times.
The Catholic Church must follow the Bible, or it is no longer God’s church.
Evolve!! What a word to use. But I guess the Pope believes in evolution so why not.
I wish there would be no more articles involving homosexuals or “transgender” nonsense posted on Free Republic. If we ignore them, maybe they will just go away. I’ve given up watching tv after seeing a commercial encouraging promiscuous sodomy after taking some pill that will block HIV. It made my skin crawl.
In the beginning there was “Right” and “Wrong” and we have been compromising in the WRONG direction ever since.
What are these ‘rights’ that homosexuals don’t have that everyone else does?
Seems to me they have it pretty good already.
My granddaughter just finished sixth grade in a Catholic school. They were taught (brainwashed) that they could choose what they are and it would be OK. The Catholic Church is already no longer God’s church.
Another reason to homeschool.
Those who believe the Bible is God’s infallible Word will always see homosexual activity as sin. They should treat homosexual people like any other heretics if they will not humbly confess the sin in their lives.
Those who are led by an “infallible” Pontiff for their final say are vulnerable to the direction of the Pontiff which is the exact danger the Catholic Church is in today. I wouldn’t behold the current one as a man of the Word - which is why our media so rejoices over him. To me, he’s an apostate.
The “cultural winds” have shifted many times in the two-millennial existence of the Church. It is their job to hold firm, not go with the times.
Unfortunately a man named Bergoglio may be about to change all that.
The Vatican evolved on this issue many popes ago.
Today gayness includes a Gay Vatican Mafia, openly gay sex and drug parties, and plenty of trusted gay workers.
“If it evolves it wont be the Catholic church any more.”
Commie Popie Frankie has “evolved”.
“Today gayness includes a Gay Vatican Mafia, openly gay sex and drug parties, and plenty of trusted gay workers.”
You’ve omitted the young boys.
