This is scary and sad. It’s from the article we referenced below, about the meeting of the gay group “Acceptance” coinciding with World Youth Day:
“Organiser Paul Harris, from gay Catholic group Acceptance, says many people find there is a conflict between their sexuality and their spirituality.
"They give up their faith, they give up going to church," he said…
That is a phenomenon that has been noticed before.
Twenty-four-year-old Daniel Smith had trouble reconciling the two issues. When he realised he was gay, his faith was an impediment.”
Remarkable. With great clarity, we see in these young men the germ of what, in San Francisco, came to be Most Holy Redeemer. They are faced with a choice that all Christians face all the time: follow our own sinful desires or follow Christ. Pray for them! And at the exact moment they need serious spiritual guidance from a Catholic priest, who shows up? None other than Fr. Donal Godfrey of USF who tells them there’s actually no conflict at all! Pray for him!
People often ask us why we blog so much about Most Holy Redeemer, the (Jesuit) University of San Francisco, etc. Well, this is why. That kind of teaching threatens the souls not only of our same-sex attracted brothers and sisters, but of everyone.
