[quote=Kay Cee]A letter in my paper this morning is an attack on the Church, and I am considering penning a response but could use some help. You can read the letter at this link by scrolling down to “Questions Pope”:
Obviously the writer doesn’t have a clue what the Church’s position regarding homosexuality actually is. I would appreciate any help finding a quote that states the Church’s official position.
I plan to bring up Mother Teresa and the work of the Sisters of Charity with AIDS patients as a rebuttal. Anything I could quote about that would also be greatly appreciated.
You guys were such great help last time that my letter was published.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
“The Creator created homosexuals and many other different people and subjects.”
God creates Human beings. How they turn out is a product of enviroment and how they developed. Saying God created Homosexuals is like saying the God created the cancer patient or the serial killer! God created human beings who happened to develop cancer or the person who happens to not be able to deal with anger and rage.
“As long as this religion can suck millions and millions of dollars out of your pockets and construct decadent buildings, and buy elaborate costumes and decorations, it will continue to operate the same way.”
The thing to remember is that God owns everything anyway. Nothing we have is ours except that God gives it to us to use. If we build buildings to honor Him and decorate those buildings to show His glory so be it.
“Yet, there are still millions and millions of people starving to death, and they will only be fed by the Roman Catholic Church if and when they turn to the Roman Catholic beliefs. Do you think that is how God wants us to live? I don’t think so.”
One needs to remember that the Catholic Church feeds and cares for more poor and homeless people than all other agencies combined. The Catholic Church established the first hospital in the middle ages and today operates the largest non-profit healthcare system in the world.
Money well spent i’d say.
