The Liberals are up in arms again February 29, 2012

The Libs and other Left wing Progressives have their undies tied up in knots again today. It seems that a Catholic priest in Maryland declined to allow a woman to partake of the Holy Eucharist at the funeral Mass for her mother. The reason being is the woman seems to be an avowed, practicing lesbian.

Of course, we hear the standard secular responses from self proclaimed “Catholics”.

“God loves EVERYONE !”  (Yes, He does!)

“God is a forgiving God !” (Yes, He is”)

“That priest had no right to judge her” – (Actually, he wasn’t)

Here’s the deal.  God made us the way we are. We are not perfect. It is our duty to know God, to love God and to serve Him.  He has set down rules which we are to OBEY (not a pleasant word in our society). In His wisdom, God made us male and female.  He made us in His likeness and image.

God set up the sacrament of Marriage.  He deems it to be a good thing.  In fact, God likes the sacrament of Marriage so much, that he has chosen it to mirror the relationship that He has with His Church.  He is the Groom and we are the Bride.  The ideal is to give each of ourselves to the other in a display of total and unbounded love.

The purpose of marriage (Sacramental, Roman Catholic marriage, as we understand it) is to be between male and female, and is to sustain the societal building block and to be open to life and to procreate when God desires to use us in this way.  Sexual intimacy is reserved for the married couple.  Any type of sexual intimacy outside of this bond, whether by heterosexual or homosexual individuals is fornication. Sexual intimacy between the married couple that is not open to life is also fornication. Being heterosexual and being married does not give you a free pass to use and abuse your spouse.

Same sex attraction is not a sin.  Being a homosexual or lesbian is not a sin. Being a heterosexual is not a sin.  Engaging in sexual activity (homosexual or heterosexual) outside of the domain reserved for married couples IS a sin.

To those who insist that God loves everyone – I agree, He does.  But He also hates sin, because it is the antithesis of Him.

To those who insist that God is a forgiving God – I agree, He is.  But to gain His forgiveness you must be repentant and must be willing to follow His ways, not yours.

To those who think this priest did wrong – well then, I guess you would also have to tell that to St. John the Baptist, who did the same exact thing by pointing out the inappropriate relationship between Herod and Herodias.  Personally, if I get to meet St. John the Baptist someday, they’re ain’t NO WAY that I would presume to tell him that he did something wrong.

The bottom line is this. If you are confused by any of this, I would suggest reading the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the early Church doctors and elders.  If you find that you cannot agree with what has been proclaimed, then I would suggest you stop calling yourself Catholic and go join some other church.  The Truth cannot change, and It won’t.

You can knock yourself out and call a duck a cat for 1000 years if you want; but even after a 1000 years, the duck will be a duck and the cat will still be a cat, no matter how badly you want it otherwise.
