Edit: encouraging people to follow in this will inevitably lead to tremendous unhappiness and misery. It doesn't matter if society as a whole endorses or is indifferent to the degeneracy. The wages of sin are death, and these Bishops are just looking to widen the pool of potential prey, is how it looks from our point of view. I've never seen grooming on an industrial scale like this outside of Hollywood and the US Congress. These bishops are setting the stage. What do you think?
[America] A group of U.S. Catholic bishops, including a cardinal and an archbishop, have signed a statement of support for L.G.B.T. youth, telling them, “God created you, God loves you and God is on your side.”
“As we see in the Gospels, Jesus Christ taught love, mercy and welcome for all people, especially for those who felt persecuted or marginalized in any way; and the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that LGBT people are to be treated with ‘respect, compassion and sensitivity,’” reads the statement, released by the Tyler Clementi Foundation, an organization that fights L.G.B.T. bullying in schools, workplaces and faith communities.
Among those signing the statement were Cardinal Joseph Tobin, archbishop of Newark, and Archbishop John Wester, who leads the Archdiocese of Santa Fe.
