IT'S CHASTITY STUPID! AND WHICH CATHOLICS WILL GENUFLECT TO THE STATE RELIGION OF SECULARISM AND THEIR gOD OF MONEY?
The Catholic Church calls all Catholics and others of good will to chastity, given their state in life. For the married couple, chastity means fidelity to one's spouse.
For the single Catholic, no matter their sexual orientation, it means abstaining from genital sexual activity of any kind.
For any Catholic who fails in chastity and commits sin, if it is determined the sin if a mortal sin, the Church has the medicine for it: acknowledging one's sin, repenting from it with a firm purpose of amendment and going to sacramental Confession.
But I fear the lack of respect that the gay lobby has for religious liberty especially now with powerful backers not only in the media, but also in government and now, the most important of all, the business community where the almighty dollar is to be revered and worshiped, (thus another reason why Pope Francis is so correct on how money in the Capitalistic societies drives morality, amorality and immorality), that they will stop at nothing until every Christian capitulates to the Church of the American Government, Secularism, especially when it comes to sex, marriage and whatever else you want to categorize under sex.
In the Catholic workplace, whether it be the parish, school, pastoral center or social agencies of the Church, if the Church dismisses from employment an openly gay worker who plans to married his same sex partner and make their lifestyle public and in-your-face kind of dissent from Catholic moral teachings, the gay man or lesbian woman would then say that the Church discriminated against him or her or whatever because he or she or whatever didn’t conform to traditional gender stereotypes and was planning to marry their same sex partner.
Just where will all this end? How will authentic Catholics who are not likely to genuflect to popular political and secular opinion and tyranny going to cope? Are we willing to go to jail, be mock, marginalized and ridiculed? I think this is what we are going to have to happily embrace for the sake of Christ and His Holy Church.
