Phoenix Diocese bans politicians who support abortion, gay rights
PHOENIX - Politicians who support issues like abortion and gay rights have been banned from speaking at Catholic churches in the Phoenix Diocese.
So far, Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano has been the only one affected by the edict from Phoenix Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted.
Napolitano was forbidden to speak last year at a Catholic church in Scottsdale at an event opposing Proposition 200, a ballot measure that restricted the rights of undocumented immigrants. The event was moved to another site....
John, I've never said every priest is a homosexual or a pedophile. Probably, even perhaps most of them are not. However, when it comes to homosexuality, it is, "Do as we say, and not as we do." Catechism? This has nothing to do with the Bible, and of course most of the policies of the Catholic Church are anti-Christian.
Mixing religion and politics should be a no-no. There is no such thing as Evangelicals and Catholics together. http://www.ihcc.org/images/booklets/pdf/L117.pdf there is a proper role for the church. http://www.ihcc.org/images/booklets/pdf/L125.pdf
Mike Gendron's newsletter covers some of these problems, like the nun who was abused by a priest. The main article, should be read by many Catholics, and they would escape many problems.
Not every Catholic Priest is a Homosexual. But really there should not be any Priests who are Homosexual. All Priests who are Homosexual should be kicked out of the priesthood.
The Catholic Church is against abortion and homosexuality because in the Catechism it states that abortion and homosexuality are grievous sins.
The late John Paul II preached against abortion and homosexuality. The late Cardinal O'Connor preached against abortion and homosexuality also. And the present Pope Benedict XVI preaches against abortion and homosexuality.
Unfortunately, if the motives of the Catholic Church is more self-serving than it is due to morality. Homosexuality is something much in the Catholic priesthood practices in semi privacy, and condemns publicly. This is what one calls hypocrisy.
