The Foolish Cruelty of Catholic Conservatives Who Want Gays to Disappear

Damon Linker on a truly appalling piece that ran in Crisis recently, treating faithful same-sex attracted Catholics who are in full obedience to the Church’s teaching as though they are enemies or fifth columnists or half-breeds. What is *wrong* with with some people? We say we want people to come to a saving knowledge of [Read More...]

First Wave of Children of Gay Couples…

…are now beginning to report in on the “How were we supposed to know?” phase of history just as most of American civilization is embarking on the “What could it possibly hurt?” phase. Train wreck ahead. But then, this was never about the children. This is about the need for narcissists to feel affirmed in [Read More...]

You may want to sit down for this…

…but a stark–and really quite compassionate contrast–to the approach of the Jerks for Jesus who tell SSA people that their form of temptation is somehow not merely temptation but sin itself is (surprise!) found in this generous and thoughtful video from Michael Voris: I think this is really quite a beautiful approach to the matter. [Read More...]

Sane Melinda Selmys…

…replies to insane Robert Sungenis declaration that it is impossible for gay people to be chaste. It’s a consolation to know that Sungenis has already profoundly marginalized himself with his crazy anti-semitism.

(Meaning “was Patheos trying to tell me what I can and can’t say?”) Answer: No. Nothing like that. I simply meant I’ve gotten email from various readers who argue, rather [Read More...]

An Orthodox writer argues that almost everybody on both sides of the Gay Culture War

Reflecting on Last Week

I’ve been pondering last week and trying to understand the reactions to my remarks about Perry Lorenzo, as well as the curious disconnects between me and some readers (and several strangers) have sort of fractalled off into space. I am, for instance, rather astonished that I could begin the week registering my intense dislike of [Read More...]
