- Election of Archbishop Dolan Signals Bishops Will Target LGBT People, Says Equality Blessed
The leaders of Equally Blessed, a coalition of ["]Catholics["] working for justice [whatever] for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, put it more bluntly: that it signals continued "targeting of gay and transgender people." [And you tell me that "Equality Blessed" doesn't target the Catholic Church as it's main attack]
The coalition members of Equality Blessed are Call To Action, DignityUSA, Fortunate Families, and New Ways Ministry[See, the feel-good names]. Francis DeBernardo, Executive Director of New Ways Ministry, said in a statement that the election "sends an ominous message to LGBT ["]Catholics["] and our families." Bishop Gerald Kicanis, the presumed successor to the presidency, was "known to be more moderate on LGBT issues, "[as in: he didn't like or care about the truth, the Church's teaching on the topic] said Nicole Sotelo, Program and Communications Director at Call To Action, in the same statement released by Equality Blessed. Dolan's election "signals that the bishops are targeting families with loved ones who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender."
Don't you see, these groups like to single out the Church for trying to stop and not accept impurity, and gravely sinful behavior. They like to make themselves out as a persecuted and attacked group of people, which they are not. Let me make this clear: HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOUR is absolutely mortally sinful, will damn you to hell unless you repent and are absolved of your sins. The person who struggles with same-sex attraction is not sinful in itself. What's wring with today's society is that T.V. shows and Hollywood like to show these people as normal and accepted, and actually promotes their "culture" as ok. The Church teaches that we should not be hostile to those who struggle with same-sex attraction, which is a disorder. Instead, we must tread them with love, for they have a difficult trial in life. But, that doesn't mean we accept the evil behavior. It means we must help them live a celibate life, and help them not give into the evil temptations from the Devil. We must help them follow the teachings of Holy Mother Church.
