You’re right madgavin. It’s one of the only shows I watch, but last night was one of the most blatant, in your face and insidious attacks on the Catholic Church that I’ve seen. It was a political statement (which = a theolgical statement) made to make those who oppose Gay marriage look like “Fundamentalist kooks”. The term “wife” was used so casually as to make it seem as though there’s no other sane position. There was absolutely no need to make those characters lesbians. It was a broadside against the Catholic Church.
It was even more of a little Secularist coup because it had Caviesal, who played Christ in Jesus of Nazareth and who’s known as a devout Catholic, going right along with it–refering to the women as wife and wife. Kind of broke my heart because I like the guy. More importantly, a lot of devout Catholic kids look at him as an idol.
I hardly ever post here, so sorry for the strong opinion, but this is why we lose. Of the comments posted so far on this thread, only one (1) even mentioned this. This is as the Church fights tooth and nail against the Culture of Death of which Gay Marriage is a centerpiece. The End Game here is to force the Catholic Church to perform gay marriages or be charged with “Hate Crimes” (see Canada) and taxed into oblivion.
Caviesal’s in a tough spot, but I hope he makes a statement at least. We’re all in a tough spot. Btw, you’d never see Gary Sinese (another Catholic) have that plot on his show. In fairness, he’s a Producer though which makes his position easier.
The whole situation’s just tragic as hel…“heck”.
