I saw a post of a Catholic today on Facebook, whose name I won't mention, who has a few followers that are in the same circles as mine. After reading this person's post, as a Catholic myself, I felt compelled to set the record straight on Catholicism.
|Father Migeul Marie.|
The post in question pertained the Catholic teachings of "Hate The Sin, Love The Sinner". Our Church recognizes homosexuality as a sin and does not condone it.
Our Church also states that we should be merciful to those who sin and to help them change their ways. If you practice anything different, then you are not a Catholic.
Last week I heard a wonderful homily by Father Miguel Marie. In his homily he reaffirmed the church's teachings on homosexuality.
Father Miguel stated in his homily that God made both man and woman for a reason. As individuals we are incomplete.
" A man can not give all of himself to another man nor can a woman give all of herself to another woman. It is only when man and woman come together that they can give all of themselves and become one in matrimony in the eyes of God."
God made both men and women with different strengths and weaknesses. Man has weaknesses that can only be taken care of by a woman and a woman has weaknesses that can only be taken care of by man. Man and woman are emotionally different and only when they come together do they reach the level of understanding that God has designed.
God does not make flaws so no man can achieve what God intended by being with another man and no woman can achieve what God intended by being with another woman. Again, if you don't believe this teaching of the Catholic Church, then you are not a Catholic. To accept communion and not recognizing the Catholic teaching is a mortal sin in the Catholic church. One that could have serious implications upon judgement day.
As a side note, it is also a sin to use God, Jesus and to twist the teaching of the Church for a political agenda.
