Why Would LGBT Americans Remain Catholic?
This morning, I read a headline that just doesn’t make sense to me. The organization Dignity USA writes, “Gay Catholic group urges D.C. to defy church”.
Dignity USA is an organization of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered Catholics. The Catholic church declares anything but heterosexual activity within marriage to be a terrible sin. The doctrines of the Catholic church declare that truth comes from above, through the Pope as absolute leader, who is directly in touch with God, the ruler of the universe. The Pope, according to Catholic doctrine, is infallible.
So, how can the people at Dignity USA claim to be Catholic and at the same time urge other Catholics to rebel against the Catholic church? Isn’t this, in Catholic doctrine, the same as rebelling against God?
Why, when the Catholic church has made it so plain that it doesn’t like or respect LGBT people, do they stay with the Catholic church?
