Did you listen to Father Neuhaus? McBrien actually affirmed what Neuhaus condemned: the right of "gays"--those who makes homosexual lust the very center of their lives-- to enter the priesthood and openly practice what goes directly against Catholic teachings.

After having read both of their writings over the last 20 years, I say, so what if he said one thing he agreed with Neuhaus on. You should read the other things McBrien has had to say. He is a disgrace to his collar. He is a supporter of New Ways Ministry and is sourced in their literature affirming their stand on homosexuality. If you noticed at the end of his diatribe on the show he started doing a commercial for priests being able to marry. He has written volumes mocking the Church while maintaining an air of credibility. He's a snake.

Homosexuality does not just go against Catholic teaching. If one reads the St. James, New International Version (NIV) or the Vulgate (Catholic) versions of the Bible, homosexual behavior is condemned by God. This is both in the Old and New Testament
The liberal press is trying to make this a "Catholic thing"--this is just not true.
