Who are we to judge if a Catholic with same sex attractions who is sincerely striving to follow the Lord as the Catholic Church teaches and fully accepts the Church's teaching on sexuality and chastity as well as marriage? This is basically what Pope Francis said about Catholic priests who might have same sex attractions although the liberal media and those with agendas against the Catholic Church's sure and certain truths quote the Holy Father out of context to undermine the Church and her teachings.
So should the Catholic Church hire someone for a position as a music director or teacher or pastoral worker who has same sex attractions? Certainly if that person is qualified and can uphold the Church's teachings in all the areas of Church teaching including sexual morality. If the person is not a Catholic, and we hire many non Catholics for church work, that person should understand what the Church teaches and in no way compromise it in any public way. I have found our Protestant and Jewish teachers over the years to be exemplary in this and quite respectful even when they don't accept many points of Catholic teachings on a variety of areas.
But the chilling fact is that there are some countries that would consider the following video which I posted previously to be illegal. One can't even call a person with same sex attractions to chastity, meaning to change their way of life and to conform to the Gospel as the Catholic Church teaches it in truth and in love. That is chilling and I think possible in Great Britain and Canada and other places of the world. Will it happen here? I think it could and it might!
