Since when did "Catholic" mean "Puritan Separatist"?

Change that to "humans and apes" and I'll acknowledge the similarity.

Are you comparing Catholics to "blacks" and Puritan/Separatists to "apes"?

No, I'm calling you out as an anti-Catholic bigot.
Let's see...would you have a problem if the NAACP disinvited a politician who voted against civil rights legislation?

While I think each private institution legally should bellowed to disinvite whomever does not follow their rules. to me this shows the RCC is somewhat out of touch with God's real creation and cannot positively spiritually address the androgynous reality of human existence.

How can the Chrurch or churches address a part of God's real creation ot rh activity of that creation when it can only be valued as 'sin.'

God ceated homozexuals and homosexuality but does he expect these people to live sexuallu void lives disguised as 'pure' or does God give them thier orientation as a 'gift' to be carried out and be thankful for it?

it seems to me that the tradition has been created with the attitude of heterosexual men who most often are repulse by homosexual expression (especially male to male) and have cidified it into religion.

I don't know where you got the idea that I have a problem with anyone uninviting anyone for any reason.

I'm not an "anti-catholic bigot". A "bigot" doesn't have reason for their opposition, much as you have no reason behind your support.

For me it is. It changed a few weeks ago here, but only on this particular forum.
