Liberty and Virtue

A person who experiences same sex attraction and who endeavors to live chastely in accordance with his religious beliefs keeps an eye out for examples of gay activists' (1) showing intolerance and hatred of traditional religious and moral beliefs and believers, (2) attempting to deny freedom of speech, assembly and religion to others, and (3) trying to cause the government to impose liberal views on sexual morality on society. Other stuff of interest to blogger may also occasionally be posted.

Gay activists do not speak for all those who experience same sex attraction!

Not all those with SSA reject traditional sexual morality!

Not all those with SSA support promiscuity!

Not all those with SSA believe the gay activist ideology of “gay pride”!

Not all those with SSA believe in making their sex drive their primary public identity!

Not all those with SSA support public indecency in “gay pride” parades!

Not all those with SSA support government promotion of homosexual activity!

Not all those with SSA support same sex marriage!

Not all those with SSA support biased teaching in public schools on homosexual matters!

Not all those with SSA demonize traditional religious believers!

Not all those with SSA wish to deny basic freedoms of speech, religion and association to those who disagree with the gay activists’ ideology and agenda!

Christian charity for persons does not require affirmation of sinful or immoral activity!

Anti-Christian Trend Growing in Europe

In the wake of the Buttiglione affair, Cardinal Schoenborn points out a harsh truth about Europe today, but calls also for hope:

"This phenomenon [i.e., a political "animus against Christianity] has existed since the 19th century, and it was present in the great ideologies of the 20th century such as Communism, Bolshevism, and Naitonal Socialism," the Austrian prelate said. He went on to say that every totalitarian ideology seeks to stifle the voice of the Church, and suggested that today's ideologues are following the same path.

The increasing influence of these ideologies, Cardinal Schönborn said, "is not a good omen for Europe, but it isn't a reason to be discouraged, either." He said that he has been saddened by the tone of polemics in European politics, but recognizes that Christianity must always struggle against public opposition.

The cardinal argued that instead of becoming discouraged, Christians should be more active in public life. "Christians are a net majority in Europe," he observed; "and if they were conscious of their Baptism, or their mission and their vocation to promote the Gospel and its values, they would not hesitate" to become politically active. Their activity, he added, "would be for the good and to the great advantage of Europe."

Me: It seems rather ironic that European elites should be so hostile to Christianity at just the time when Europe is in greater danger than ever of being subject to a true theocracy of sharia law and a Muslim caliphate.
