Hi, guys —

Gay marriage will be the norm in many places: Ireland, Europe, and, very soon, the U.S.A.

The Church, with all due respect, seems to be lost in this modern world. The most troubling part is that the Catholic Church has millions upon millions of supporters for this. I know there have been moments throughout history where great change has swept through but gay marriage is the biggest and it wouldn't be good going anywhere but to continue on our current path.

  • What are those, who don't support the these gay unions but love these children of God, suppose to do?
  • Truly, who am I to judge?

Thanks!

Shawn

What are those who don't support these gay unions but love these children of God suppose to do?

  { What are we suppose to do if, we don't support these gay unions, but love these children of God? }

Shawn,

We continue to pray that God guides us continually into the truth. I expect the situation will tear the Church apart in some ways because, as you say, millions of Catholics have bought into it.

I also expect that the official teaching will not change and that will make it harder to be a faithful Catholic from the persecution that the rest of the world will serve up.

Lastly, we will continue to love all people. Sexual attraction issues should, in no way, take away from that fact. We love them, pray from them, explain why we disagree on the marriage issue, and deal with the aftermath.

Jesus was persecuted and He said to his followers they would be too, because the world does not want the truth — so it will be for us.

Peace,

Bob Kirby
