I keep reading about homosexuals ordained in Protestant denominations that prohibit practicing homosexuals from being ordained. They know this, but choose to deceive their denomination and get ordained anyway. We have had that problem in our Church as well. It is unethical to deliberately get ordained when you know you don’t accept what your denomination teaches or the responsibilities of the office. It is a lie. Sure some at that moment want to live morally and they later may fail. That is one thing, but to deliberately lie is another.
So here is a novel idea. Don’t get ordained. Join a denomination that says it doesn’t care what you do morally. Be truthful and back out. Be honest and don’t be ordained in a denomination that you don’t believe in. A Protestant can choose many denominations that accept practicing homosexuals. A Catholic however, if he is to remain Catholic, must choose to not be ordained. It is wrong to try and “change” a denomination by such unethical means.
I left my former denomination because I came to believe in Catholicism. I didn’t try to import Catholicism on the unsuspecting. I followed my conscience and left. I believed that was the honorable thing to do. Far more honorable then what many homosexuals are trying to do to their denominations or to our Church for that matter. Just a thought.
