An Urgent Appeal

An Urgent Appeal Mission Saints Sergius and Bacchus an affirming and welcoming Catholic ministry is in desperate need of an automobile. Their previous donated car died after 287 thousand miles and 23 years of life and this has placed a serious burden upon the work of the mission. Without a car our ability to make hospital and nursing home visits as well as visits to the homes of mission members and to celebrate liturgies in locations convenient to mission members has been temporarily been placed on hold until we are able to obtain a reliable means of transportation. If there is anyone out there who knows of someone who would be willing to donate a reliable vehicle in good running condition to the mission in return for a letter of acknowledgement which would provide them with a tax deduction in the amount of the cars excise tax assessment or blue book value please contact Fr. Bob at: Mission_St_Sergius @msn.com or call the missions phone line found on our web site at www.missionstsergi us.org  (Jul 20, 2007 | post #1)

Gay/Lesbian

Church aims to defuse split on gays

It is clear that you do not believe the teachings and the example of Jesus Christ who did not drive anyone who wanted to be near Him away and accepted everyone. Love your neighbor as you love yourself" Evidently you do not love yourself and therefore cannot love your neighbor and one of God's children because God created them with aa sexual orientation toward members of their own sex. There is but one God, and one Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, not a lot of churches for different groups, next we will want a church for Republicans, another for Democrats and still another for Independents and how about one only for Italians, and one for Germans and so on. There have been enough splits because of man made rules which have nothing to do with the teachings of Christ. Let's not create any more  (Jul 9, 2007 | post #6)

Roman Catholic Church

Emerging truth: gay issues and the Catholic Church

Which letter are you talking about, Christ himself said" I have come to give you a new covanent" and when asked what the most important commandments were He replied "Love the Lord, your God, with your whole heart, mind, sould and body and the second is like unto it, Love your neighbor as you love yourself" Christ broke almost every rule found in the Book of Leviticus and called the priests of His time "Hypercrits " In order to know what is meant in Holy Scripture one has to look at the orriginal language and discern exactly what the words used meant at the time they were written. As for the word "Homosexual " it didn't even exist until 1869.  (Jun 24, 2007 | post #116)

Roman Catholic Church

Emerging truth: gay issues and the Catholic Church

If you believe in God and you believe that everything God has created has a purpose in God's plan is essentially good then how can you condemn someone who God created with a same sex orientation? We can not presume to make judgements against someone that belong to God alone. Like all of the human race through out history, our imperfect nature causes us to take the good things God has created and turn them into something bad by using them in a way that God never intended. Sex is a gift from God and a way of one individual to express their love and affection for another. I should be used in a committed relationship and not just for indiscriminate personal pleasure.  (Jun 24, 2007 | post #115)
