Florida Catholic bishop: ‘It is religion, including our own,’ that targets LGBT people
Washington Post ^ | 6/13/16 | Robert Lynch

Second, sadly it is religion, including our own, that targets, mostly verbally, and often breeds contempt for gays, lesbians and transgender people. Attacks today on LGBT men and women often plant the seed of contempt, then hatred, which can ultimately lead to violence.

***
Even before I knew who perpetrated the mass murders at Pulse, I knew that somewhere in the story there would be a search for religion as motivation. While deranged people do senseless things, all of us observe and judge and act from some kind of religious background. Singling out people for victimization because of their religion, their sexual orientation, their nationality must be offensive to God’s ears.

This guy was Terri Schiavo's bishop, the one who wouldn't utter a word to save her.

Apparently, he never bothered to read his Bible.

Homosexuality is a sin. Its not politically correct to state it but its the truth.

And today the Church is incapable of speaking the truth.

Then his soul is already damned, and nothing he says can be anything but satanic.

Bear in mind this is a WaPO writer feeding his scat to the public. Perhaps they forgot what the homosexual infiltration of the priesthood did for their church?

No, it is Babylonian confusion that lumps the grace of Christ with the spirit of anti-Christ, Islamic Supremacy, and Sharia Law.

He’s just reiterating what his Boss is telling him to say.

It wasn’t a Christian, Catholic, or Jew who shot up that night club.

I've seen a lot of famous self-hating Jews, now here comes a guy who's a self-hating Catholic. And the sad thing, he's a bishop.

Scumbag Bill Maher also has the disgraceful distinction of being BOTH a self-hating Jew and a self-hating Catholic.

Dumb A$$! Religion targets sin, not individuals. The Roman Faith in particular only talks about the responsibility to seek forgiveness and try to sin no more!

No wonder the Church is in such disorder. Between the idiot Leftist Pope and his brigade of Stupid Apostles it is a wonder they have any adherents. As one I look past their nonsense in the hope that Christ will send a new and better leader and leaders.
