A clear reading of Scripture shows the natural order of human relationship is that a man leaves his mother and father and joins as one with a woman. That view is reinforced with many Scriptures stating clearly that men laying with men and women laying with women is sin – against nature as God designed it.
There is no new ‘theology’ on this issue, no genuine way of reinterpreting what the Bible says about love and sex and relationships, so one must dismiss much of Scripture before you can come to accept homosexuality as ‘normal’ and acceptable in any way shape or form.
The Bible is clear - we are to love the sinner but reject/admonish, yes, even hate the sin.
To mistreat children because of the sins of their parents, and to normalise sinful behaviour and accept sinful relationships of any sort cause untold harm to the individuals concerned and to society as a whole.
Acceptance of the sin promotes sin, it serves no good purpose whatsoever except perhaps it make people who do it, feel good. Gets them ‘liked’. While at the same time denigrates everyone who holds to Biblical truth.
The sins of ‘abuse’, by those who call themselves Christians, which are all over our papers today, bring shame on every Christian. Many times it has been held up against those who speak out against sin of any sort, but especially sexual sin, as a taunt, as though we are all guilty of it.
In just the same way those who reject Scripture and endorse homosexuality, and by default almost all other sexual sins, are seen as ‘enlightened’ and ‘progressive’ and held up as a taunt against those who stand firm on the truth of Scripture.
The whole church, but especially the Catholic Church, has been undermined by the infiltration of worldly ideas that led to cruelty to, and abuse of, children. Before that it was the worldly view that ‘coloured’ people were part of the ‘evolution of man’ and therefore less than human, which led to appalling racial prejudice by the church and society.
Today, it is the false worldly idea that homosexuality is bred into someone - that they are ‘born that way’ and that it cannot be changed - that has infiltrated the church and led to some very flawed revisionist ‘theology’.

Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom. Craig Manners
