Twenty percent of young people in Generation Z identify as LGBTQ. This is an epidemic. This is a disaster. Have you heard one sermon on the subject?

Why are so many priests, bishops, and archbishops completely ignoring this? Cowardice?

And the larger that number becomes, the more cowardice will play a role in their silence. So yes, this may only get worse.

The culture is evangelizing 24/7 but the Church is punting. Believe me, the culture applauds the Church’s silence.

It’s not like Church teaching is silent on this subject. It has a great deal to offer on the subject of sexual ethics.

When asked about marriage, Jesus was not silent. He said, “God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Male. Female. A man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife.

The Church has essentially abdicated its role of speaking out against the culture in the name of Jesus. The culture looms large and spineless clerics seek the shelter of a banal homily in the hopes of being seen as one of the good guys. They do not fear Hell most. No. They fear being seen as one of the uncool Catholics. They live for being patted on the back by the elites who tell them, “you’re not like those other Catholics” or “if only all Catholics were as pastoral and loving as you.”

Millions of confused souls may perish but these spineless prelates will receive their affirmation from the culture. And like fattened house cats they’ll curl themselves around the feet of their master and purr.
