made me proud.

So lets just say we are not in the greatest financial shape when compared to other places of worship in the area. So when we were recently approached by the Boys Scouts of America to rent some space we rejected them because of their stance on gays within their organization.

Just thought I'd brag.

I'm Catholic like I'm Irish. It's part of who I am/was.

That's a culturally I am an Irish Catholic. :)

I do not go to Mass unless it's with my parents.

Are you talking about the membership controversies?

Yep. It would be a bit hypocritical to take money from them but not allow the Lesbian couple in the congregation who adopted kids to participate.

So you're proud of your church because they have a stand on not discriminating against homosexual behavior... I see...

So let me ask you this: Would your church allow someone who only wears see-through clothing, to attend your services?

Edit:
Here's an example...

If Kate Moss where to show up for Sunday services in this... someone wouldn't ask her to leave?

I think the irony G5 referred to was a reference to the pedophile priest controversies.

But ...

The Catholic Church opposes gay marriage and the social acceptance of homosexuality and same-sex relationships, but teaches that homosexual persons deserve respect, justice and pastoral care. The Vatican and Pope John Paul II are speaking out against the growing number of places that recognize same-sex marriages.


Isn't that sort of a pot-kettle thing? What am I missing?

G5's statements, while amusing, aren't what I'm talking about.

The question is for Panthro. I'm trying to determine what his Church's moral compass is pointed to, that he's so proud of.

I'm catholic (a member of St. Patrick's off of East Blvd.) and have no problem with gays. It's none of my business, anyway.
