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.
