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!

Archbishop Rips Forced Buttiglione Withdrawal

Some more reaction to the Buttiglione affair:

The president of the Council of European Bishops' Conferences (COMECE) has criticized the "intolerance" of European Union leaders who forced a Catholic to withdraw his nomination to the European Commission.

After Rocco Buttiglione's announcement that he was withdrawing his name from consideration for a spot on the European Commission, Swiss Archbishop Amedee Grab said it was "unacceptable" that European parliamentary leaders had blocked the Buttiglione nomination.

Buttigilione had drawn strong opposition when he expressed his view that homosexual acts are sinful. A devout Catholic, with strong ties to the Vatican, he had been denounced as "intolerant," and the opposition to his nomination stalled the appointment of the new European Commission.

That political impasse, in turn, caused an unprecedented crisis in the young European Union. Incoming President Jose Manuel Durao Barroso was unable to take over the European leadership on November 1, as scheduled, because his nominees to the European Commission had not been approved. Buttiglione stepped aside in an effort to resolve that crisis.

But Archbishop Grab told the Italian daily Avvenire that the resolution was "unacceptable." The COMECE president argued that "no one should prevent a political leader from expressing his opinions."

The archbishop continued: "It is unacceptable that the mere fact of holding an opinion different from that of the majority is immediately seen as intolerance."
