Any church that would do this and claim they are Catholic is in direct defiance of the church and it's teachings. The disease of Protestants infecting elements of the church is one that the Apostles themselves had to deal with. The bible is full of protestors. The church welcomes those who wish to deny engaging in homosexuality. It does not welcome defiance and promotion of values contrary to the church.
Pope Francis was recently alleged to have welcome this, but his excumminication of a priest about a week ago who was advocating for same sex marriage says no. In context his statement was talking about those who struggle with homosexuality who in compliance with church teachings reject it are not judged. Open retaliation is another thing entirely. The church is very clear on this matter and perhaps one of the few voices left. The church has its tares, but the teachings of the church are not what some may choose to accept on their own terms. They may believe this, but there is a protestant church for them as that is what they are.
About 25 college students and community members at St. Johnís Abbey in Collegeville, Minn., were denied communion by Twin Cities Catholic Archbishop John C. Nienstedt because they were displaying rainbow buttons and sashes in protest of the churchís stand on gay relationships.[The students turned the moment of Holy Communion into a protest against not merely the particular minister of Communion - Archbp. Nienstedt - but against the Church's teaching. The story says "stand", using political terms. The Church has a teaching. If you do not accept the Church's teaching about the immorality of homosexual acts... if you do not accept the Church's teaching that marriage is only between one man and one woman... then you have no business receiving Holy Communion. When you approach the the minister of Communion (not just anyone, but the Metropolitan Archbishop) openly displaying a symbol that manifestly shows that you are protesting the Church's teaching, you are openly showing that you should not be receiving Communion. Therefore, the minister of Communion, the Archbishop was obliged not to give them Communion. If Communion should not be received, and that is clear, then Communion should not be given. Students knew that. They did this to provoke the controversy.]
On a calmer note ..

May be its like this,

Some CHURCHES,..CATHOLIC. AND NON CATHOLIC ..open specifically
for these communities,

Some like on hat list say THRY are,gay friendly ..I did NOT make that
up as a slur on your CHUrch ..it just IS...

where I live is very diverse ..And here are,nice people ..eh o believe in Christ ...who are gay ..it's a fact.

Now,perhaps,some minister or priest decides they should HAVR a,place to worship..AND LEARN ABOUT OUR LORD ..

maybe they are led to this ...OR JST WANT A,CHURCH .

IF God has inspired them who are,we to say ...oh well THRY are,terrible ..they must have PROTS influence ..that's,absurd .

Jesus came to sinners,..period...all sinners ...

I'm thinking this community dies to Churches they feel welcome...

And it's UP TO GOD TO CALL THEM .

who="DeAngelo of Memphis" Yes my friend, the Bible has many contradictions especially looking into the Gospels. Why is it that everyone have a different account of the Resurrection?! And another thing, in Genesis we understand that there were only 4 people in the beginning but one was slain by his brother. Where did this wife of this brother come from, U know, the wife he supposedly fled with?!

----------

The writers of the gospels wrote in the same way that you and three others will tell about an accident you all saw. You would each bring out the things that got your attention. I see no problem in the gospels.

Adam lived for 930 years and was commanded to replenish the earth. Cain and Abel were not their only children. The Bible does not say that Cain fled with a wife. It simply said that he 'knew'(had intimate relations with) his wife, and she conceived.

Whoa, U really lost me on that last part!! Anyway, most people read rather than study. So there is a major misconception of who God is and how we should live. And so called believers are the ones being led wherever and however because they don't take the time to research for themselves what they are told by someone to believe without question.

I'm sure U might have went to take a peek. Just check out the last chapter in all 4 Gospels and tell me that this is God's word that has these inconsistencies. And by the way, if U're using a smartphone, the only way to reply without having to type out everything is to use the mobile version instead of going to desktop mode. Just in case that was the reason U were typing out quotes.

Yea, but U still ignored the contradiction. Whether Cain met his wife in refuge or as soon as he was banished to the wilderness this is still an utter contradiction to how life began as far as the number of people present. Is it possible that Cain took a sister as a bride and had offspring? Like I said, U and many others never examine the text. U just believe what U're told because U're taught that if U question what is obviously questionable, U will suffer a terrible fate. So can U explain this contradiction?

hahahah!
Laugh'n at you...
I'm not a "protestant"...in fact, I'm not a crister either...but I am not an "atheist"... except perhaps, in the perception of indoctrinated religious bigots such as yourself.
You arrogant little misfits assume that "your' religion or belief is the "only" one...spans all eternity... and every individual within and without of world society is a part and parcel of your poorly constructed, and filled with contradiction and absurd notions of actuality...one which is so absurd that the adherents can not even agree on the very simplest of verse.
You yourself have to "imagine" that I am an "enemy" of the confused "state" of your absurd belief just to allow yourself to denigrate personality rather than address the errancy of your collective writings(by men-not your deity, I might add), and go directly to that deflection as a defense...because you have none in actuality.
Reading this thread is like reading the "religious" rendering of "Gulliver's Travels"mixed in with "Lord of the Flies".

Now, read your post(s), and tell me that you are not one of the worst offenders of your own "finger pointing"(accusations).
Carry on...
It makes me thankful I was never indoctrinated into such a misled and hateful cult that produces the likes of most of what I observe here.

It is hard to generalize on this subject. There are so many Christians quite comfortable talking with saints and angels, while others, I suspect do not have an "ear" to listen closely to what they say. So instead, they prefer to be deaf, as that silence is more comfortable than engaging in spiritual warfare.
Some people are just not ready to fight in spiritual matters. The battlefield is full of casualties all the time....
I note in Ecclesiastes 4:2 "And I am praising the dead who have already died above the living who are yet alive."

I agree...to a point.

Only four?????

The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters.

And there are no contradictions in God's Sacred infallible Word...

The men of the bible were portrayed ...warts and all..But the ones who were faithful were used by GOD ...

the bible is FAITH in a book.
Culmination ..God's mercy to His people .

What about the "backslider" or somebody that forsakes the Lord? The Bible says he will suffer loss (rewards, etc.)- but he himself shall be saved! "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus the Messiah. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: BUT HE HIMSELF SHALL BE SAVED; yet so as by fire." -- 1 Corinthians 3:11-15

We become the BODY OF the Messiah!

For we are MEMBERS OF HIS BODY, of his flesh, and of his bones." Ephesians 5:30

Now ye are the BODY OF the Messiah, and members in particular." 1 Corinthians 12:18

What if we later - BELIEVE NOT?

Our salvation is so secure - even if we BELIEVE NOT after we're saved, because we become part of Him (the body of the Messiah), "...yet he abideth faithful: HE CANNOT DENY HIMSELF." "If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: HE CANNOT DENY HIMSELF." 2 Timothy 2:13 But what if I sin an awful sin? Corinthians 5 reports of an awful sin in the church. And even though Paul commands ".. To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh" - Paul still speaks of that person being saved - "...that the spirit MAY BE SAVED.. " It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife...To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit MAY BE SAVED in the day of the Lord Jesus." 1 Corinthians 5:1,5

To lose your salvation - makes God a LIAR!

With all the PROMISES from God to KEEP you, to SAVE you, to PRESERVE you - to even suggest you could lose your salvation - is to call God a LIAR! "...he that BELIEVETH NOT GOD hath made him a LIAR; ..." 1 John 5:10 Why do people doubt their salvation? They trust in feelings rather than the word of God. "He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool:..." Proverbs 28:26 They are confused by the simplicity of salvation. "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from THE SIMPLICITY that is in the Messiah."
2 Corinthians 11:3 They trust in tradition or church teachings rather than the word of God. "Making the word of God of none effect through your TRADITION,..."Mark 7:13 They trust in their own righteousness."... and all OUR RIGHTEOUSNESSES are as filthy rags;..." -- Isaiah 64:6

The obvious error in that is that "lineage" was determined from the firstborn male of each and every generation....all the way back through and even preceding the Sumerian bloodlines. That is where the "Abrahamic" line actually comes from.
Any deviation from it renders the line "broken" and the blood impure from that point on..
There can NOT be two different lines of firstborn within any genealogy...it is simply impossible, and any attempt to modify that sequence is purely adulterated obfuscation and deceit on the part of the perpetrator(s).
The Sumerians show thousands and thousands of years of the "blood rule"...but the "universal church" had to construct a fabricated genealogy in order to make it appear that it was factual.
In their zeal, they implicated themselves to the forgery involved in the duplicity of errant genealogies.
You are welcome to believe these two fellows if you wish.
I do not...the evidence is against the proposition.

how you will act?!
Holy Scripture teach you;'act with conciseness and understanding'.
