The Bible/Church make's a mockery out of God and Jesus.
*** This is wrong teachings and
as an individual John C. Nienstedt you are a BIGOT .
The Most Reverend John C. Nienstedt,
Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis
You may wish to know that the Church's teaching on homosexuality is a very balanced one. It can be summarized in the following three paragraphs from the Catechism of the Catholic Church: (Par. 2357) "Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction towards persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures.
Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred
Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition
has always declared that 'homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.' They
are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life.
They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity.
Under no circumstances can they be approved."
(Par. 2358) "The number of men and women who have deep-seated
homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively
disordered, constitutes for most of them 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."
(Par. 2359) "Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of
self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of
disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and
should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection."
*** This is so wrong! ***
*** May the churches that teach the fear and hate of God
be extinct in one generation! ***
*** In Heavens Name, Amen! ***

What's the real difference between winners and losers? Does God really favor some people over others? Or have winners simply learned the thrill of conquering every challenge life throws at them while losers bow down as if they somehow deserve their misfortune?
Meet the Anderson family. All four siblings have rolled with life’s punches and come out on top; Robby suffered a broken neck at the age of 16 but went on to become a reputable jeweler and successful businessman… Beth survived growing up gay and moved to the west coast to join the crusade against hate crimes… Mike moved back to Minnesota and came out amidst a flurry of verbal gay bashing to fight for zero tolerance in the workplace… And Sharon left the husband who held her at gunpoint to establish her town’s first women’s shelter. The inspirational poetry she writes has recently been published… so yes, one could say the Andersons have done quite well for themselves. They’re successful, free, happy and most definitely not victims. One might even call them “winners.” Still, nothing could prepare them for the call they are about to receive…
Losing everything you have is one thing but being told your misfortune is the wrath of God is quite another. This is when Mike takes on perhaps the biggest challenge of his life as he follows the trail of hatred and bigotry back to the blurring of Biblical law into civil law. There he discovers gays were not the only ones being interrogated, persecuted and demonized. So were “heretical” Christians, Jews, slaves, women… any “second class citizen” who refused to bow down in penance and dared to stand up and fight for what they knew in their hearts to be right.
With Michael’s story comes surprising clarity about the damaging effects of organized religion on society and poses the burning question; what do we believe in now that we know much of what we’ve been taught is wrong?

If You want to lead me to Jesus
by Grover Levy
What if we all
were a part of God.
experience love without us?
God could only imagine
what true love was.
Do we let God experience it all...
though us all?
Where are you at with letting
God experience love through you?
Does it even matter?
