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!

Comments on Buttiglione from England

A friend from England writes with the following comments on the Buttiglione affair, which has been discussed below on this blog:

I think there are some other factors [besides religious discrimination] at play too. Not least, some revenge from some German politicians who were annoyed at comments last year by the Italian Prime Minister that a German MP behaved like a nazi concentration camp guard. Such is the commission's infantilism.

I think Buttiglione could have played his political cards more wisely. He could have quoted the [Catechism of the Catholic Church]'s teachings about human rights and non-discrimination. He could have promoted the family and not mention sinfulness. I can't quite understand how someone would mention what he did on homosexuality when he was promoting his suitability for a job.

Buttiglione is quoted as saying that 'homosexuality is a sin,' which isn't the Church's teaching. As you know, the Church teaches that 'homosexual acts are mortal sins in the objective moral order and homosexual inclination is objectively disordered because the inclination in itself leads to mortal sin in the objective moral order.' Buttiglione could have simply said that he is an obedient Catholic and left it. I think he behaved in a way that makes him un-suitable as a Catholic politican.

I am very upset too. We need good Catholic politicans; especially in Europe. However, the only model for a Catholic politican is Saint Thomas More, who acted skillfully and prudently at all times and only spoke out against his opponents when his conscience obliged him to.
