HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

THE THIRD WAY

HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

Today the Blog brings to you a thought provoking, 40 minute film on the theme: HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE CATHOLIC CHURCH:



I was sent this film by a blog reader. 

I DO NOT LIKE THIS FILM.

I DO NOT ACCEPT THE DOCTRINE THAT THE FILM PROMOTES.

I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THE LOVE BETWEEN TWO GAY PEOPLE, SEXUALLY EXPRESSED, IS A SIN OR A DISORDER.

I DID NOT WANT TO PUBLISH THIS FILM ON MY BLOG.

I WANTED TO DELETE IT AND FORGET IT.

I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, AS AN INSTITUTION IS A GOOD CHURCH.

I BELIEVE THAT THE CATHOLIC INSTITUTION IS ABSOLUTELY CORRUPT.

BUT I AM PUBLISHING THIS BLOG AS I HAVE BEEN CHALLENGED TO AND I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN YOUR VIEWS..

I BELIEVE THAT THIS FILM IS A FORM OF SUBTLE HOMOPHOBIA

PLEASE SPARE THE TIME TO WATCH IT AND COMMENT

  1. I agree Pat I do not like this either, if this truly truly is the teaching of the church why are so many of the Priests within it not choosing to follow this teaching....this should played on a loop within the seminary if that is how Priests are to behave!

    1. Most priests think that JP 11's Theology of the Body is bonkers.

      And you are right - most priests and bishops do not practice it.

      It is a Church ploy to control lay people.

      Priest.

  2. I've just watched this load of rubbish . . If I didn't know it was catholic church I'd have swore it was some weird cult recruitment video . From what I understand gayness comes from not being loved as a child or being abused . I had a great childhood loved by all my family had loads of friends but yet I'm gay ,how did that happen ? Maybe I wasn't breastfed or sumthin .
    Also being gay is against the natural order . Well its a fact that in every species of animal homosexuality has been found however homophbia is only found in 1, us !

    The people interviewed all had the same thing in common they were lonely sad depressed low self asteem . Just the right type to be taken in by a church or cult and moulded into their own fashion so the dnt know who they are anymore . The term knock you down then build you up again springs to mind .

    I was born gay I'm very lucky to have a great family I never needed to ask for acceptance . I have a great partner also from a happy family . We are happy together and if the church dusnt like it then tuff tits . I know god made me and I'm not broken or bent as some people like to say . We are told that God dusnt make mistakes and he knows us even in the womb so why would a loving caring god make someone gay then condemn them to a life of solitude whilst all around them are with partners and families . I just cannot believe God wants this , I am made in his image and he made me to be myself . I didn't choose to be gay who on earth would choose to be a minority a life of bullying and discrimination? . God I believe wants me to be happy and thankfully I am

    This video is ignorant shameful and homophbic not to mention full of hypocrisy. The majority of priests in rc church are bloody gay and shaggin like rabbits . Thousands of kids worldwide have been molested by priests and religious. Many catholic countries are dying from famine yet the Vatican is rich beyond measure yet gives nothing . Children are being born with hiv/aids simply because the church won't sanction contraception. Yet these are the people who tel us what God wants from us . Don't be gay said the man in the fancy dress , big hat , jewel encrusted cross and long shiny stick !

  3. It’s a depressingly predictable but slick piece of catholic propaganda.

    Internalised homophobia comes to mind.

    I’d be interested in meeting, or hearing about, these people in years to come. I hope I’m wrong but I have a feeling these people will not be so entrenched in their current position. Very few, if any, are called to a life of celibacy.

  4. I DO believe that sexual relations between members of the same sex IS morally wrong.

    1. It's not just morally wrong, it is un-natural

  5. I just watched this and the only problem I see is that it doesn't mention the one piece of truth that is mentioned in 1 Corinthians 6 :11 'These are the sort of people some of you were once,'.... They were no longer the people he mentioned in verse 9... who were (past tense) sodomites, adulterers, catamites, thieves, usurers, drunkards, swindlers, people of immoral lives'.... So all these type of people will not inherit the kingdom of God. The Gospel is about changed lives, not living worldly lifestyles but new creations in Christ. The 'flesh' has nothing to offer it is the 'spirit' that gives life (John 6:63)There are a lot of baptized pagans in the church who need to be 'born again' This video has nothing to do with so called 'homophobia' it'd about living the narrow road that leads to life and away from the wide and spacious road that leads to death, which many take.
