This homosexual Ottawa priest is back at pushing his lgbt agenda.
He wants us to ignore that he disobeyed the 1961 (and 1985) Vatican orders against ordaining men with deep seated homosexual tendencies. For this disobedience, he now wants us to celebrate the gay identity of priests who snuck in.
This man should not be allowed anywhere near FacEducation students. He should be ordered into a back-corner Archdiocesan office. How long must the Archdiocese suffer from this man (and St Joe’s parish and St Paul’s U and the OCSB “catholic” school board)?
“Within the month of Pride, today we are often a taboo subject, or homosexuality and faith. How can anyone live their religion and homosexuality? André Samson, vice-dean of the Faculty of Education of the University of Ottawa and a Catholic priest of the diocese of Ottawa.”
Things must be challenging at the Coren house. Michael’s wife Bernie is a lovely woman – a devout Catholic. He knows she is a wonderful Christian and a very loving person. And he also knows that the believes the Catechism. She loves the sinner (eg him), but hates the sin (eg lying)
Coren now is resorting to making things up – like what the Catechism actually says!
“The Roman Catholic Catechism calls for respect for gay people but describes homosexuality as “intrinsically disordered” and “a grave depravity” and in spite of a sparkling media campaign and one or two gestures, Pope Francis has never wavered from, and even emphasized this.”
What does the Catechism ACTUALLY say?
2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.”142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
Winnipeg Free Press needs a fact checker! No wonder their subscription numbers continue to decline.
But when he turned 18, he became a lapsed Catholic. “I realized that . . . too much of my day-to-day life that was not the slightest addressed by what I was receiving from the church, from the formality, from the structure,” he said.
“So like so many Catholics across this country, I said, ‘OK, I’m Catholic, I’m of faith but I’m just not really going to go to church. Maybe on Easter, maybe midnight mass at Christmas.’”
But when his brother was tragically killed in an avalanche in B.C. in 1998, faith became more important. This included accepting an invitation from a friend to attend an Alpha course, an evangelistic discussion group about Christianity.
The course “came at exactly the right time,” he said, helping him realize that he needed to trust “in God’s plan.” Since that time, he “re-found . . . a deep faith and belief in God.”
At the same time, he hastened to add, he was “obviously very aware of the separation of church and state in my political thinking.”
