When people with a favorite heresy or moral depravity choose to hate and attack the Catholic Church for opposing their ideas, I can understand. I cannot agree, but can I understand the underlying logic behind their reaction. But when someone with a favorite heresy or moral depravity insists that the Church go along with it, I just don’t get it. Why not become a Unitarian, where belief — literally in anything — is optional?
I read a comment on an LGBTQ site. (The “Q,” by the way, stands for “questioning,” in case you’re one of those backward old traditionalists who still says “LGBT”!) I posted a comment, which may or may not get approved.
Is it a good thing or a bad thing that the bizarre lexicon of the “progressivist” Catholic still amazes me?

I would like to comment on two phrases that occur in this commentary: “…anti-LGBTQ theology…” and “The present climate of hostility to everything LGBT in the Catholic Church…”
While the Church’s ministers are to show mercy to sinners, working and praying for their conversion and spiritual healing, the “climate” in the Church has never been anything but hostile to “everything LGBT.” Sexual impurity and perversion is something the Church must be hostile to, if she is to be true to her Founder.
As for “anti-LGBTQ theology” (do we really need the “Q” there?), there is no other. Catholic theology is the science that studies God in the light of human reason elevated by supernatural revelation. Since revelation flatly condemns the unnatural perversions that go under this ever lengthening acronym, Catholic theology must also condemn them.
If you are a homosexual and wish to be healed of it, Jesus Christ, the Divine Physician will heal you as He did all manner of physically and spiritually afflicted people. But to insist on calling yourself Catholic while defending unnatural sins against the sixth and ninth commandments is sinful.
