This comes as no surprise to anybody, but yesterday, the Catholic Church yet again proved that it has not yet left the 11th Century, and that it is utterly irrelevant and wrong in today’s world, defying the explicit orders of the Christ it falsely claims to serve. A Vatican document detailing new regulations for candidates for the priesthood was leaked to the Italian media one week ahead of its scheduled release; it states that “those who practice homosexuality, present deeply rooted homosexual tendencies or support so-called ‘gay culture’” are not eligible to enter seminaries, offering the caveat that eligibility would be restored if said ‘homosexual tendencies’ have been “clearly overcome for at least three years before ordination.”
Just that much of the statement is filled with nothing but pure Grade-A bullshit — and it gets worse from there. (I’ll get to that shortly.) They have this utterly idiotic idea that homosexuality is something that one “practices,” as though it is chosen; what they fail to realize is that homosexuality is not something you “practice,” but Catholicism is. The dictionary definition of the word homosexuality is as follows: the quality or state of being homosexual. Where does that imply any “practice” at all? That meaning makes it clear that homosexuality is a God-given state of being, not something that is “practiced.” On the other hand, Catholicism is a choice, as Catholics can convert to Judaism, Hindu, Islam, Buddhism, or any of the thousands of other faiths that exist today — and given the Satan-inspired behavior of the Vatican on the subject of homosexuality, converting to a faith that respects Jesus’ explicit command to “love thy neighbor as thyself” might not be a bad idea.
The document also contained the following logical diarrhea:
Those people find themselves, in fact, in a situation that presents a grave obstacle to a correct relationship with men and women. … If instead it is a case of homosexual tendencies that are merely the expression of a transitory problem, for example as in the case of an unfinished adolescence, they must however have been clearly overcome for at least three years before ordination as a deacon.
My God, how much more clear can you be that you hate those faggots, directly defying the aforementioned “love thy neighbor as thyself” command issued to you by Jesus? For that matter, are you aware that you are violating the Eighth Commandment, the one that states “thou shalt not bear false witness”? The false witness you are bearing here is the insinuation that gay people cannot have a “correct relationship” with anybody simply because they are gay. Your former Führer Karol Wojtyla is currently burning in Hell for his part in spreading such lies, and his replacement Ratzinger is following very closely in his footsteps.
Perhaps even more insulting than that is the suggestion that gay people are only gay because of “unfinished adolescence.” This merely proves the point I made on October 25 about so-called “Christians” and their attitude toward us: that we are nothing more than walking and talking penises to them. The words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40 bear repeating to people who hold such beliefs about their gay fellow human beings: “Whatsoever you do to the least of My people, that you do unto Me.”
That is to say, when you dehumanize gay people by accepting such fear-mongering propaganda as truth, when you refuse to admit your gay brothers and sisters in Christ to any meaningful role in the Church, and when you refer to these brothers and sisters in Christ as “intrinsically disordered,” you are doing this to the least of Jesus’ people — and by extension, you are doing this to Jesus. He will remind you of your sins against His gay sons and daughters before telling you, “Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil!” (Matthew 25:41)
I honestly don’t know how any person in his/her right mind can in good conscience continue to support the Catholic Church and its anti-Christian beliefs and activities on the topic of homosexuality. The Vatican is merely proving that it is completely irrelevant to anybody with an IQ above 90 by so brazenly and defiantly ignoring Jesus’ teachings and commands in the Bible. If you continue to behave in ways that belittle, dehumanize, or discriminate against gay and lesbian people, you will come to find for all of eternity that the fires of Hell are very hot — it’s as simple as that.
