LGBT ministry will not “elaborate” on Church teaching on sexual morality

[No longer a sin crying to heaven for vengeance]



The diocese of San Jose is saying its LGBT ministry will not “elaborate” on Church teaching on “sexual morality, conscience, and personal sin,” while claiming that gay people can’t change their sexual orientation.

The document “Guidelines for the Catholic LGBT Ministry Council” bears the name of Bp. Patrick J. McGrath and is the guide by which Catholic parishes are to deal with LGBT people.

It maintains from the outset that the guidelines “do not presume any particular social or psychological analysis of sexuality in our society, except for a generally accepted premise that individuals do not choose and cannot change their sexual orientation but must understand it and integrate it into their life of faith and conscience.”

It continues, “The guidelines accept, without elaborating, the perennial teaching of the Catholic Church on sexual morality, conscience, and personal sin.”

In several locations it cautions against discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or violence against LGBT people, even accusing the Church of having made “homosexual orientation the basis for discrimination and rejection or isolation of individuals and groups.”

The document then calls for ministers to “respond without prejudice or condition to all who turn to the Church for support, counsel, reconciliation, solace or sacraments,” claiming that anybody who is baptized is entitled to the sacraments — without mention of whether a person is repentant of his sins. Instead, according to the guidelines, “the sacramental forum is above all a place of encounter,” and gays should “foster the wholesome integration of their sexuality into their human and Christian growth.”

The document makes no mention of Church teaching on homosexual acts “as acts of grave depravity,” “intrinsically disordered,” and “contrary to the natural law.”

  1. … a generally accepted premise that individuals do not choose and cannot change their sexual orientation

    From the fake saint’s CCC ( )

    2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. They do not choose their homosexual condition; for most of them it is a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

    Of course, this infallible statement (it’s magisterial, right?) was replaced by another infallible statement that left out the “do not choose” part. However, it is clear that the Vatican archives contain the original, Bergoglio has de facto allowed it, and now McGrath has implemented it. This will soon become policy at most dioceses, as it’s currently the unspoken policy in most.

    Once NewChurch (Europe and America) go full sodo, laws will be enacted to suppress all dissent. Just see what’s happening in Canada.
