More on homosexuality

This question has nothing to do with "welcoming gays" on the one hand or "Catholic bigots" on the other. Christ loved everyone and invited everyone to respond to his call, but it was a call of repentance: "Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel’" (Mk 1:14-15). Similarly, when the crowd asked Peter on Pentecost what they should do, Peter said: "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 2:38). Then he warned: "Save yourselves from this crooked generation" (Acts 2:40).

The point is that there is a specific content to Revelation. There are specific truths to be accepted, grasped, and internalized. Insofar as we assist others in living more fully in the truth, we love them; insofar as we make up our own "truth" and encourage others to do the same, we fail to love them. We may find ourselves more comfortable, more at home in the world. But when we love what the world loves, we hate.
