    Hey Anon - you just said that a family is a group consisting of parents and children living together ... then you say it doesn't have anything to do with sex. Where did you grow up? Last time I checked the way you got kids was to have sex. Hello?

    Again it it clear that Pres.Obama is capable of preaching their message to whatever choir he is standing in front of. Q: So is this the version of the Bible that Rev. Wright was preaching?

    The United States government is supposed to be impartial towards matters of faith. The generic dictionary definition of 'family' is a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household. I'm pretty sure that doesn't have anything to do with sex.

    Bigots.

    You who suggest that a gay person can change, are you also suggesting that you decided to be straight, and are also capable of changing your sexual orientation? Would you also suggest for all of the gay people out there to live entire lives apart from love? Christ said in the Bible that it is better to marry, than burn.
    And to Jean, I know men who have committed the sin of suicide because they were driven to it by groups like this, and by people who refuse to treat gays with love.

    I personally believe God loves everyone, including homosexuals, no matter how badly they sin.

    The whole everyone is equal is total bs. Once you start going down the road of sin you drift farther and father away from God. Homosexuality is a Sin period, so it is best to repent and seek the road of salvation.

    This proclamation has nothing to do with civil rights.The Gays already have them. This administration is determined to destroy Marriage between a Man and a Woman. This nation was built on the solid Judeo and Christian Principles and Morality, not a Happy go lucky Obama administration.!!

    The definition of a "family?" When asked what would be his first action to save his country, a Chinese emperor answered: I will restore the meaning of words.

    Andy Holland, the point I think was that Galileo and Copernicus were right about the Earth revolving around the sun, not the sun revolving around the earth. I could be mistaken and I certainly don't know as much as you do about physics, but I thought that was the main thing Galileo was persecuted for.

    Everyone is equal, you're right, God does love everyone, including homosexuals. And having a homosexual orientation doesn't mean that a person is a sinner. But God doesn't love homosexual acts because they go against what He meant sex to be for, just like he doesn't like fornication or adultery. Am I right?

    Well Andy
    Im not here to argue but hopefully to give an intelligent answer with humility and wisdom if I can.

    The Catholic Church has already apologized and admitted it was wrong.

    Basically Pope Benedict is asking for Faith and Reason which is not at all unreasonable.

    Throwing Copernicus and Galileo is getting to be a broken record from the 'WORLDLY' view.

    If no longer applies at all anymore because the Church is enlightened the world just doesnt think so.

    Yes she has made unelightened comments in the past.

    We do have priests who are Physic Majors and also we do have a Vatican Observatory in Astronomics.

    We have come up to snuff on education.

    So in a good natured manner I think its time the world got some knew material regarding what the Catholic Church believes and doesnt believe.

    I believe Satan exists and Im sure someday with mathematics and science were going to prove he exists in material way.

    So this being said I think you had better cut us a little slack that maybe Mother Church has a little more Wisdom than the world give her credit for.

    I mean this sincerely and not as an attack but hopefully as good, sound information

    IF ANYONE GETS THE CHANCE AND WANTS TO BE ENLIGHTENED REGARDING OUR SAME SEX BROTHERS AND SISTERS GO OVER TO THE COURAGE APOSTOLATE.

    BY THE WAY OUR POPE IS AN EDUCATED SCHOLAR. I AM GOING TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT HE SAYS.

    IT WOULDNT HURT IF THE WORLD THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT HE MAY HAVE TO SAY FOR ITS OWN GOOD WHEN IT COMES TO PEACE AND SOME OF OUR WORLDLY PROBLEMS.

    PEACE BROTHERS AND SISTERS.
