Taking a Stand

The Vatican released a paper the other day saying that homosexuals would be kicked out of Catholic seminary. The Vatican newspaper also went on to say the following.

Homosexuality risked “destabilizing people and society”, had no social or moral value and could never match the importance of the relationship between a man and a woman. It (homosexuality) does not represent a social value and even less so a moral virtue that could add to the civilization of sexuality. It could even be seen as a destabilizing reality for people and for society.

The Catholic Church had a duty to reaffirm its position that homosexuality is “against conjugal life, the life of the family, and priestly life”. In no case is this form of sexuality a sexual alternative, or even less, a reality that is equivalent to that which is shared by a man and a woman engaged in matrimonial.

It said homosexuality was “a sexual tendency and not an identity” and repeated the Church’s stand against allowing gays to marry or to adopt children. It also called homosexuality “an incomplete and immature part of human sexuality”.

You have to give them credit, when they make a stand, they do make a stand.
