Homosexual Activism 

Homosexual Activism

Feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, 31st July, 2003

Before I berate the behaviour of others, I had better examine my own conscience - sheesh! To use a recent quote of President George Bush, "We are all sinners". Despite the appearence of prayer, including the rosary, and a visit to Church, to spend a while (a not very great while) in front of Our Lord present in the Blessed Eucharist today saw me no closer to God, although I hope I strayed not too far either. Graces where, as ever available, and I would guess I spurned them when I: a) decided to have another drink; b) said something cruel in order to gain a few cheap laughs; c) got scared and forgot the Divine Mandate "To go and teach all nations"; d) trusted almost exclusively to my own willpower. To use a quote from yesterday, I neglected the supernatural gift of Hope.

Notwithstanding all of the above, I know that the Church is divinely called to heroic witness and that I am also, although a sinner, called to play my part in this. God alone knows, how great a sinner I am (though I have a fair idea, especially when I recall my conduct with my longest girlfriend, how great my sins are). It would be so easy to fall into introspection and to many this would be the correct action. Yet my sins, and the realisation of them does not override my obligation to love my brothers and sisters, all of whom were created in God's image.

Vice is justifying your sins, and, as as a result, continuing to commit them. By the grace of God, I haven't fallen into vice with regard to sexual matters (yet)! But the secular world, swept along by the 'winds of progress'(and we all know the diabolic source of these) is now conducting a campaign to legitimize the vice of sodomy. Where is the outcry? Where would one expect it to come from? Not the protestant sects (the pathetic, inconsistent statements of the 'church' of England show how far the protester's religion(s) have strayed from God's will). Nor from the Orthodox 'church(es)'. Of course, the clear, lone voice railing against the sinfulness of legitimizing homosexual 'unions', comes once more from the Catholic Church.

If ever one needed a sign that God's Church existed here on earth, the unpopular, yet truthful, statements by the Catholic Church on contraception, abortion, euthanasia and homesexuality etc., provide it.

Comment I just love these out of hand pokes and jabs at the Orthodox Church (of which I'm a part).

Comment The Orthodox Church has a long history of speaking out on these issues. See my 9/2 post for more....
