"WHEREVER TWO OR THREE ARE GATHERED IN MY NAME"
I've been wondering that myself. We know many Catholics of the past two or three generations simply are not well formed in what the Church teaches and just Who (Jesus) is the Source of these teachings and the obligation of Catholics to accept everything the Catholic Church teaches as revealed by God (in the areas of Faith and morals of course).
I don't know how accurate this gloat from a gay activist, Sally Kohn writing in the Daily Beast is, but I print it anyway:
"The Episcopalian Church embraced gay marriage this week. Earlier this year, the Presbyterian Church (USA) affirmed its support for marriage equality, joining many other major Christian denominations that officially endorse LGBT rights. And according to an April 2015 poll, majorities of congregants within many Christian faith traditions support marriage equality—including 60 percent of all Catholics, 52 percent of all orthodox Christians and 62 percent of white mainline Protestants. They’re joined by 94 percent of Unitarian Universalists and 77 percent of all Jews.
Perhaps most strikingly, 64 percent of self-identified Millennial evangelicals support same-sex marriage. As the literal future of orthodox Christianity, it would be hard to paint their views as at odds with such orthodoxy. Rather, they are a portrait of that future—not of a post-Christian America, but a post-homophobic Christianity. That is the “new normal” that Obergefall does not singularly usher in but merely reflects. The world has changed. Christians and Christianity has changed, too. And again, I say, “Hallelujah!”
Will anti-gay Christians be politically and socially ostracized? I sure hope so. Just as those orthodox Christians who still believe in strict, traditional gender roles have been increasingly mocked as absurd."
My comments: What impact will society's acceptance of same sex marriage have on the Church, espcially when fascists like Sally Kohn have their way and America becomes like Nazi Germany or Fascist Italy prior to World War II. Back then the ideologies that wrecked havoc on the world were right wing. The ideologies today that will wreck havoc on America are left-wing.
Does it matter if the Church is large or small, accepted or persecuted? Does it matter if the Church (meaning her members) are faithful or unfaithful?
I ask you answer!
