Re: Should A Cardinal Confirm A Practicing Homosexual Parish Council Member? Some Critical Reflections

Apr. 24 at 10:18am | see this comment in context

This is a good and thoughtful article that carefully examines moral teaching and pastoral implications. Some same-sex attracted Catholics who strive against many temptations to live chastely could very well be tempted to "throw in the towel" as a result of Cardinal Schönborn's decision. Perhaps the Cardinal is thinking that his gestures towards Florian Stangl and his friend will eventually lead the two of them to fully embrace the Church’s moral teachings – but because of the public nature of this particular situation, there may be thousands of others out there who will be tempted to rationalize, “Since an apparently orthodox Cardinal doesn’t have a problem with this, why don’t I also seek out a ‘faithful, committed’ homosexually-active relationship?”
