On a calmer note ..<quoted text>
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.]
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 .
