The Catholic Church is out of sync with GOD
Most gays denounce God and or Jesus. Homosexuals are out of sync with God and natures intentions for life so instead focus on the defects and destroyers of life.

Either you believe in God's Word or you don't. If you belief the Bible is God's Word and that He gave us certain laws to abide by then you should abide by them. NOBODY should pick and choose which laws to follow. Not me and not you. Yes God is love. But He is soooo much more than that. So is His Church. If you want a simplistic and newly created "God is Love" religion fine. Its your choice to start or follow that religion. However know that your "church" isn't the one God intended 2000 years ago. Gays are entitled to attend Mass. They may even partake in communion (though they shouldn't). But gays are not entitled to special prayers. Straights don't get special prayes.
The "bible" as "God's Word" is a protestant heresy.

You don't know what you're talking about.

Elaborate. Please cure me of my ignorance. Are you inferring Catholics don't believe the Bible is the Word of God? If so are you referring to the Magesterium?

If they believed the Bible was the Word of the Lord they would do as Jesus the Author of all Scripture said. And they always leave out the fact that it was Jesus Himself who destroyed Sodom!

Luke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
