Same Shit, Different Day...Vatican Document: "Homos Still Disordered, We'll Just Say It In A Nicer Way"
The document, prepared after a week of discussion at a two-week synod of nearly 200 clergy, says gay people have “gifts and qualities to offer the Christian community.”
It reads: “Are we capable of welcoming these people, guaranteeing to them a further space in our communities? Often they wish to encounter a Church that offers them a welcoming home.
“Are our communities capable of proving that, accepting and valuing their sexual orientation, without compromising Catholic doctrine on the family and matrimony?”
John Thavis, a Vatican expert, has called the document “an earthquake” in the Church’s attitude towards same-sex couples.
“The document clearly reflects Pope Francis’ desire to adopt a more merciful pastoral approach on marriage and family issues,” he said.
Hear that? We have "gifts and qualities" the church finds useful, that is, so long as we don't expect anything in return, they will be happy to use us like their bitches but still refuse to treat us as equals.
Again, exactly what I said they'd do, offer nothing and reiterating Catholic dogma, just covering the vitriolic bile with a sugar coating.
Nuthin to see here folks...move along.
