There are lots of diseases that people are born with. All disease is unfortunate. It would also be unfortunate to pass some sort of moral judgement on a gay person. I have no problem with gays. I also believe they are free to do what they want. But as for me and my family, we choose the Lord.
No, you little cop-out, have some responsiblity for your own actions. Know that whoever or whatever your are claiming for the rightness or wrongness of your opinions, you are following a line of action that puts you in the worst company of people who ever walked the ****ing planet.
Who else equated gay people with sick people?
Who else wished to reduce gay people's rights to freedom with their own bodies?
Your Church is not infallible. Ex cathedra statements can be wrong. Non-ex cathedra statements can be wrong. When it's mumbo jumbo like transubstantiation, go for it: I have utter respect for you to believe what you like if it makes you feel warm and fuzzy about your God.
But the second you start evangelising courses of action that differ from pink triangles and gas chambers in nothing but degree, or condone lies from incompetents that will result in millions of deaths, then this is beyond your right to believe mumbo jumbo. It's about the health of my planet.
There are those who, with 100% faith, take pre-pubescent girls and cut off their clitorises with rusty knives. If they die, it is God's will. With this anti-condom shit the Catholic Church is going deeper into sickness. More avoidable death, more avoidable orphans, more pain. Justification? God said it was so, and inconvenient facts are therefore trumped by faith.
