Riding the racehorse toward acceptability. . .
“If homosexuality is a gift, and therefore it’s good, then why is it not good to act upon it?”“so many brothers and sisters with a homosexual orientation who feel misunderstood and unloved by us, who are Church, by their families, by their society and even by themselves, as it was in the days of slavery,” Cruz said.
The bishop also referred to Pope Francis’ 2013 quote: “If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?” The bishop said. “There’s a logical inconsistency there that’s going to lead to a lot of confusion, especially for young people, which will actually lead to more damage. Because when they live outside God’s plan for human sexuality, that always leads to unhappiness and despair.”
So. . . does anyone think that the Brazilian bishop is anything but a prophet of the new way Pope Francis has determined is the best means to engage the current culture of sex and gender?
