The Mutt and Jeff of Media Catholicism are at it again.
"....especially when I think of all the wonderful LGBT friends I have."
"Love means: getting to know LGBT men and women [aka sex deviates]..."
He's getting warmer.
"spending time with them..."
"..and wanting them to be a part of your lives..."
Still warmer. I believe Martin is trying to tell us something.
I know what he is telling this writer: if it looks like a duck (see above photo), walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. "Even after 25 years as a Jesuit [Note to young men with a vocation: you might want to cross the Jesuits off your list.] the level of hatred around homosexuality is nearly unbelievable to me". Someone must have hurt this man's poor, little feelings. It is instructive that he seems inordinately interested in this particular mortal sin. In addition to his personal "predilections", shall we say, Father Martin is instructing us on what he apparently believes is correct theology.
And then there is the Rosica Guy, master of theology and cravenness:
|Rosica(l) and kindred spirit, Mr Cupich of Chicago|
"In contrast to the modern-day Pharisees and their followers, true Christians are those who boast in Christ crucified and no other, meaning that they believe that Christ’s work ensured the salvation of all whom He represented and is the only thing that makes the difference between salvation and condemnation. They know that their own efforts form absolutely no part of their acceptance before God. They rest in Christ alone as their only hope, knowing that it is the work of Christ by the grace of God that guarantees salvation."
"....their own efforts form absolutely no part of their acceptance before God"? Mr Rosica will need to clarify that point a little. Is "acceptance" salvation? If not, what does the man mean by acceptance? Acceptance of what? Their sinful selves? And who are the modern day Pharisees? Please advise, Father Rosica. If you are not just spouting gibberish have the courage and the decency to tell us plainly what you are talking about.
In view of these pseudo-doctrinal musings one wonders what vending machine these two clowns got their theology degrees from.
