Someone sent me this quote. Note the source:
"It is deplorable that homosexual persons have been and are the object of violent malice in speech or in action. Such treatment deserves condemnation from the Church's pastors wherever it occurs. It reveals a kind of disregard for others which endangers the most fundamental principles of a healthy society. The intrinsic dignity of each person must always be respected in word, in action and in law."
- "On The Pastoral Care Of Homosexual Persons", by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
My comment: Your point has stuck home. I concede. Ouch.
My mother, the Catholic Church. Of course I had to pick one of the tougher denominations to live up to. Jesus help me.
