The evidence is pretty clear that the people we are attracted to is more biological and cultural than it is a human choice.
My view is...if the religion you are in requires you to restrict your own passions, either leave the religion or say no to your passions. Don't stay in the religion and demand that your passions be accepted by the religion.I’ve always found it odd when people care so much about what others do with their lives when it doesn’t hurt them or anyone else. I mean, really, who cares? I was born and raised catholic, still consider myself a catholic, but really find this view from the church outdated. I guess I can live with a religion denouncing same sex marriage because we all get to choose our religion. It’s when laws start telling people they can’t do it that really irks me.
Of course they have. Of course they are hypocrites. But that doesn’t mean you throw away your convictions. You just stop being hypocrites by ending pedophilia and installing much better controls.Moreso that the Catholic church has already sinned enough for everyone. So it just makes them look like hypocrites by casting judgement.
Of course not. But it sends a message that if you wear a collar, the rules don’t apply to you. Two adult men having a consensual relationship is forbidden, pedophelia gets you a pension and protection from prosecution. it’s a complete abdication of moral authority, and it’s been years in the making.The pedo scandal would be fine if they’d just change their mind on same sex marriage.
