Taking a page from the Jefferson Bethke playbook, Catholic priest Fr. Claude (Dusty) Burns (a.k.a. Fr. Pontifex, because he’s hip) offers this spoken word/poetry piece on why God loves you if you’re a homosexual*
*But only if you never act on it, and never get married, and never love someone else of the same sex, and never adopt a child, and repent for your sins.
In marriage two become one flesh, open to life for propagation
Two of the same in union can’t reach this fulfillment of God’s creation
The same Church that says no when we fail to keep our sexual selves in check
Is the same Church that says no when others try to take your respect
You never are alone and the Church offers you a home as it stand for what is true.
Although the Church says no to gay marriage it still says Yes to you.
It’s never good when a step up from where you used to be is still somewhere near the very bottom of the ladder.
Fr. Burns is a part of of Courage International, a Catholic Ministry focusing on the LGBT community and clearly not doing a very good job of it.
