Honour thy Father and Mother (Pastoral Care), Light Switch for a Christian Home. Designer unknown. Must have been a naive Christian designer. Sex is a sin - bad thoughts are taboo. The sexual connotation is in the eye of the beholder.Pope Benedict XVI's letter to the Catholic faithful; makes a plea to all closeted gay Catholic Priests to come clean (face up to justice), to declare their status as an act of repentance, healing and renewal.?!
Catholic Church repents of Concessive Concealment - is it enough?
The churches concealment - code of silence ensured the abuse continued. The practical effect of this code of silence has been to allow the priestly abusers to become serial rapists, as they have been shipped off from one assignment to another. Daily Beast, Blogs and stories, James Carroll
They should come clean, accept the fact that they to are homosexuals, come out of the closet, declare themselves gay, be listed as child offenders, and support the gays rights to Holy Communion and their rightful place in society – as an act to redeem themselves. It is time that the Catholic Church admits that their priests are sexual beings, that they are sexually active and that the policy on celibacy should be scrapped – maybe then they wont abuse little boys and girls, suppose to be protected by god’s people in god’s house. This is an abomination Pope Benedict. Instead these Priests, yes they are criminals (paedophiles), are protected by the Catholic Church, and permitted full rights within the Catholic Church, a position god loving homosexuals are denied. Yes the Catholic Church has provided them sanctuary, whilst their gay god loving Christian brothers are denied communion and support. By the way, gays are not paedophiles Pope Benedict. We love sex with our own kind, but we are not paedophiles. One wonders whether the Irish Paedophile Priests had confessed to these acts, before receiving communion, and administered the body and blood of Christ to their congregations. If so, then the Pope and his clergy should please explain why they were permitted to administer and continue to receive communion, whilst god loving and fearing gays are constantly refused to partake.
