I'm ex-Catholic and I do worry, they should be allowed to marry.

Not a fitting example for the rest of us.

Every one submits to the call of nature, this is supported by what I have witnessed in growing up.

Frankie issues a call for a return to "Church Militant" ecclesiology.

He's a Jesuit. The most brilliant in several generations.

DON'T take things at face value with this guy.

Statistics don't agree, neither with pedophilia, nor serial killers for that matter. Queers are fundamentally maladjusted and need to be listed again as such. Their predisposition to exhibitionism, domination and sadism/masochism is well established and cannot be hidden by queers misusing Wikipedia. Sexual activity amongst queers is completely a domination scenario, as is their relations with straight neighbors in any community they move into...

I really don't mind breaking this to you dear, but if we use you as an example, heterosexuality would be classified as a learning disorder and Christianity a mental illness.

It's always been a hush hush thing that catholic parents in the past steered their queer sons into the catholic ministry. Admittedly the parents thought that being priests would be a good honorable profession for their queer sons but the unintended consequence was that their queer sons became queer priests who were in a perfect position to molest countless young boys.

<quoted text>What does pedophilia have to do with gay priests? Over 10,000 of the gay priests have AIDS and over 100,000 of the cases were homosexual child abuses cases,children past puberty, so not pedophilia. But indeed, homosexual child abuse boundary issues that gays were responsible for.
When the Catholic church finally admits to the problem in whole being a homosexual problem, then they can kick out Bud.

<quoted text>I agree. But, it will never happen, unless their is a major push back, because the removal was designed to help eliminate the social stigma. I wonder if they will do the same to pedophilia, so they can be accepted....My bad,since 2009, the same group has been trying to do the same thing for pedophilia that they did for homosexuality.
That's not how it happened. I was there.

And here we get another example of heterosexuality being a learning disorder and Christianity a mental illness. Thanks for all your help. Now go pray for forgiveness, you're going to need it.

Wow, you really don't care that you can't even fake having a clue as to what you rambling on about. If you are going to believe truth, you might as well know some first:
