More from the Pope on Gay Marriage


The Holy Father said today (12/21/12) concerning the continuing acceptance of gay marriage: “People dispute the idea that they have a nature, given to them by their bodily identity, that serves as a defining element of the human being...They deny their nature and decide that it is not something previously given to them, but that they make it for themselves. The manipulation of nature, which we deplore today where our environment is concerned, now becomes man's fundamental choice where he himself is concerned.”

  1. Not to judge you or your circumstance, but the problem with the Pope's statement (and the Vatican's overall position on homosexuality) is that it is merely an observation, by a man, which exactly contradicts the stated observations and experience that gay people provide: God made me gay; I have rejected nothing, I'm simply stating a fact. My bodily identity is gay.

  2. Thanks for the comment. As a Catholic I must follow the Holy Father in persona christi (in the place of Christ.) It has never been easy, but I love Jesus and the Church. I have chosen to live this life, I don't preach and say everyone must live as I live, but some are interested in what I have to talk about. Thanks, and all the best to you.
