Celebrating sin? Sounds good!
In June, Catholics celebrate the Month of the #SacredHeart. LGBTQ people celebrate #PrideMonth. LGBTQ Catholics celebrate both. One shows us how Jesus loves. The other shows us whom Jesus calls us to love today. https://t.co/R0VyOefty9— James Martin, SJ (@JamesMartinSJ) June 2, 2023
Listen, people seeking love and acceptance should be loved and accepted. However, when they ask us to love, accept, and celebrate their sin we say no thanks.
Fr. Jim Martin is playing a semantics game here. We all know what he means but he wants to hide behind calling us to love one another. He wants us to believe that all LGBT Pride is asking for is love and acceptance of them as people. But that’s not the case. You must accept their behavior. You must celebrate their behavior. Bake the cage, bigot!
I’ve read many times that Jesus never spoke out against homosexual behavior. There are many things Jesus never spoke specifically about.
Do they really think Jesus calls us to fully change ourselves with a radical love, except for sexuality. He wants us to be His follower in every room in the house, except the bedroom?
I just don’t get it.
When asked about marriage and divorce, Jesus was plainspoken. No riddles.
Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?” He answered, “Have you not read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined 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 put asunder.” They said to him, “Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?” He said to them, “For your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so.”
Do lefties really believe that Jesus exempted a subject as important as sexuality? Do they believe Jesus failed to mention a subject which the entire existence humanity depends? Of course not. He spoke clearly.
Male and female. Man and wife. Husband and wife.
Do they believe that Jesus was too scared to speak out on such issues? You really think Jesus was afraid of offending people? Jesus instructed His followers to eat His flesh. And what more could they have done to him?
