“Speaking of Homosexuality”

Posted by Warren Peterson on May 27, 2013

The Boy Scouts compromise, homosexual boys, okay, gay adult scout leaders, no. More states approve same-sex marriage. So are you an ignorant bigot if you hold a different view especially if your view is based on religious belief? There are limits on constitutional freedom of speech and exercise of religion but they are narrowly defined – falsely yelling fire in a crowded theater, denying a child life a saving blood transfusion, for example. If you are ambivalent, confused or mind made up on the issue, read:“Speaking of Homosexuality”. I don’t expect to change anyone’s opinion but I do think the article is well within the bounds of free speech and makes cogent arguments for long-standing traditional belief.


One Response to ““Speaking of Homosexuality””

  1. The Catechism of the Catholic Church goes on to state: “Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided” (#2358). And in an even more sharply worded statement from the Vatican—s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith we read: “It is deplorable that homosexual persons have been and are the object of violent malice in speech, or in action. Such treatment deserves condemnation from the Church—s pastors wherever it occurs” (Letter to the Bishops of the World on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons, #10).
