It has been reported a gay priest has been booted out by the Vatican. Sure, they are meant to be celibate, but it is pretty clear where that toxic rule leads….. priests having sex and sadly also to abuse. (These are separate issues).
They keep paedophile priests in ministry, but not the gay ones. Wow.
It is interesting they are quick to boot out a priest for not remaining celibate and being gay…. but don’t boot out all the paedophile priests and those who protect and enable them.
I caused an uproar on social media, giving my views on this. Most ‘liked’ post, but wow the toxic homophobes came out to play. Such angry, abusive and nasty people, with the good ‘ole trick of quoting OT verses out of context. When you remind them that Jesus said very little about being gay…. ummmm no reply from the homophobes on that…
I let people know I am a Christian, I have empathy, I have a conscience, I am not a hypocrite, I know 1st Century Biblical context and I do not abuse the LGBTIQ community like so many church people do. I also let people know about cognitively distorted minds and the causes of racism and homophobia – often being low IQ, lack of empathy/conscience/remorse (psychopath continuum traits).
I couldn’t care less what the toxic people think of my views.
I just made my points and supported good people in the process.
You have to be willing to be mocked/abused by toxic people, to do good in this world, especially when being a voice for those abused.
