<quoted text>A Catholic Defense of Same Sex Marriage
By Professor Daniel C. Maguire
a Catholic Theologian teaching at Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
[email protected]
The Catholic Church is beginning to rediscover what it once knew; that not all persons are heterosexual, that many people are homosexual and that this is just fine. In the past, the Church accepted homosexuality more openly and even had liturgies to celebrate same sex unions.1 There was a recognition that different sexual orientations are clearly part of God's plan for creation-some people are heterosexual and some are homosexual-this is the way God made us and we have no right to criticize God.
Wherever the human race is found we find persons of differing sexual orientations.(We find the same thing in God's animal kingdom.) Human history shows that some humans have same-sex attractions and unions and others have opposite-sex attractions and unions. The desire to bond lovingly and sexually with persons of the same sex or of the opposite sex, is a fact of life, a fact of God's creation, and we have no right to call it unholy. As the Acts of the Apostles says in the Bible, we have no right to declare unclean anything that God has made (Acts of the Apostles 10:15). To do so, in fact, is a sin.

You just can't wait for the fist queer pope, can you? In a way, I can't either. That way I know my Lords return is nigh and He will obliterate ALL evil such as homosexuality and usher in a PERFECT eternity where HE will dwell forever and YOU and YOUR ILK will be not even a memory.

It may be popular in today's culture to defend and promote sexual perversion in the name of "tolerance" and "diversity"; but the truth is, God hates such acts and judges them severely. Homosexuals do not need, and must not be given, encouragement to continue in their destructive, sinful behavior. In accordance with the "Laws of Nature's God" (Declaration of Independence), homosexual acts must be recriminalized by the civil government (I Tim. 1:8-11, Rom. 13:4). Upholding true law in such a way is also showing true love. Ecclesiastes 8:11: "Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil." Homosexuals should be told that they, as all sinners, are lost and headed for hell unless they repent, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and are saved (Rom. 10:13). Christians must stand against the New Sodom which has sprung up in our midst. At the same time, we must share the gospel with the sodomites and pray that some will be born again and justified by faith in Jesus Christ (Jn. 3:3, I Cor. 6:11). Now you know what God's revealed Word, the Bible, says about homosexual acts. For your own sake, I hope that you will not try to change the meaning of His words or add to them. Proverbs 30:6: "Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar."
I believe in Jesus and I believe Jesus never said anything about homosexuality.

At times in history, the hierarchy and theologians taught that slavery was moral and that anti-Semitism was not a sin. Obviously they were wrong and they eventually were corrected.
Something like that is now going on regarding homosexuality. Many Catholic theologians agree now with Protestant and Jewish theologians that same sex unions can be moral, healthy, and holy.6 Many Catholic people are living in same sex unions and adopting children and still practicing their Catholic faith. Many priests realize this and welcome these couples to Communion at Mass and even have private liturgical celebrations of their unions.
Obviously, then, Catholic teaching is in transition on this subject and Catholics are free to let their consciences decide either for or against same sex marriages.

This has absolutely nothing to do with wanting a gay Pope, Wayne.
And, btw, dream on.......
God loves every person on earth, Wayne, and this includes the very people you are trying to condemn here.
Being homosexual is not a sin, Wayne.
Why would God condemn anyone for being the person He created them to be?

I bet you are praying your next pope supports gays, aren't you? Tell the truth.
Would you please supply the Koine word for "scripture" ... as opposed to plain old "writing".

Do you believe the Catholic Church is the pillar and foundation of truth?

I don't really understand why you people can't wait for the end to come and everybody dies. What if you are wrong? I kind of think the anti-Christ is leading you. What if I am right?
Actually, I don't believe in any of that crap. The human brain cannot possibly comprehend such things so when whoever tells me they know, the only thing I know for sure is they've been brainwashed.
Personally I'd like see my peach tree mature and produce enough fruit for me AND the squirrels.

Piffle.

That anthology of old writings is NOT all prophetic utterence. That's pure heresy. Some is. Some isn't. It's an ANTHOLOGY, not a single coherent work.

I cannot resist temptation, and it is so tempting to argue with him.

ANTHOLOGY
An anthology is a collection of literary works chosen by the compiler

He is right; you are wrong, Wayne.

Fortunately, YOU aren't able to judge the hearts and souls of humans in God's place, despite your belief that you alone may speak for your creator.
God's word reveals your heart. That's why you are attacking the Bible. Your heart has been exposed by God.
