A Win for Morality But the Fight Goes On

According to SCOTUS, an individual’s religious beliefs are equally as important as another person’s objectively disordered sexual proclivity.  Or to say it another way, Christian beliefs in regard to homosexuality and same-sex marriage are at least legally on equal par with the LGBTQ activists’ notions of what is acceptable moral behavior.   As an NBC […]

PFLAG ‘T.H.AW.’- A Program to Make Homosexual Behavior ‘Okay’

  The announcement in our parish bulletin last spring seemed innocuous enough. A program entitled Transgender Homosexual Awareness (T.H.AW.) was being held to give parishioners “an opportunity . . . to hear the voices and to understand the experiences of our transgender brothers and sisters and their family members.” But since our parish had already […]

Conscience and Catechism

The Catechism of the Holy Catholic Church I recently had two very enlightening conversations on the subject of conscience: one with a teenage girl at CCD, and one with a Jesuit priest in his seventies. The teenage girl told me that she thought that homosexuality was okay, because, she said, love is love, and love […]

Same-Sex “Marriage”: The Winnowing of Catholic Men

  Powerful cultural winds have stormed across the world, throwing the historical understanding of human sexuality into a whirlwind of uncertainty. During the past 50 years, violent gusts have divided and confused Catholics about the use and morality of contraception, abortion, sex outside of marriage, divorce, and the homosexual movement.

Same-Sex “Marriage”: The Victims. The Children.

The Supreme Court ruling on same-sex “marriage” settled the legal question, but the debates go on regarding the social and moral   ramifications.

Same-Sex Marriage: An Open Letter to Justice Kennedy

Dear Justice Kennedy: #SCOTUS Dr. Paul Kengor, professor of political science, says, “Most people who support same-sex ‘marriage,’ including many gays, do so for benevolent reasons. They believe that it is an issue of ‘equality’ and a new ‘freedom for a group of people.’” They are not haters, nor crazy, and they have no desire […]

Spouse-Sexual

There is a lot of talk about “heterosexual” and “homosexual” out there. They are terms and notions so causally tossed around that to question them is the ultimate social sin. However, I would say that in general these terms are used as cookie-cutter categories to justify a “fate” view of sexuality or to reduce sexuality […]

Waltzing With Satan

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” The Usual Suspects. Dir. Bryan Singer. Polygram, 1995. Film. We live under the delusion that Satan was defeated at Calvary. If you think that assessment is unrealistic take a look around. How often do you hear Satan referenced in a homily? […]

The Same-Sex \”Marriage\” Challenge:  Let The Debate Begin Here

Many years ago I was living in San Francisco, my faith life was mostly rot, and I was working at a Catholic University, under the supervision of two openly homosexual bosses.
