    We are living in the Time of The Great Apostasy when those who have left Christ's Church spiritually, have been allowed to remain within His Church physically, causing chaos and confusion as they lead many astray. Let no one deceive you.The harm is going on as we speak. Since it is possible to research statements made by the various cardinals who have been placed on the pope's council, why not do some investigation to see how many of the eight cardinals dismiss the destuctive nature of same-sex sexual relationships, and are thus part of the Great Apostasy? To deny that every son and daughter of a human person has the inherent right to be treated with dignity and respect in private as well as in public, is to deny The Word of God.

    Anon: yes! Someone close to me is gay and he is perverted. He cannot accept that his lifestyle is reasonably a questionable one. He chooses to dislike and ignore anyone who cannot agree with him. He is a 3 time loser in his gay relationships. AIDS is a disease of those that are blatantly sexually active as it affects either sex. In the early days of AIDS it was the"gay disease"medical people as well as most people,were scared of people with this "gay cancer". They were in the learning stage about the disease. Gay sexual behavior was still considered to be very disgusting. Behavior modification and abstinence was considered a way to avoid getting AIDS but there was no cure once one got it. In the early days it was questionable as to how contagious the disease might be. Simply people were very scared of the disease itself. Some people but very few thought that gay people brought this "gay cancer"on themselves and the disease was a curse on their lifestyle choices. That is a cruel attitude but attitudes such as those are born of fear and ignorance. The fact is that a pill to cure AIDS while rejecting behavior modification and sexual abstinence as a way to avoid getting the disease in the first place,is equally ignorant and it is blatantly dishonest. If one chooses to live a sexually active random lifestyle with anyone and everyone willing to have sex with them,than plan on the strong possibility of getting AIDS, AIDS today has become the Bi-sexual disease. Oral,anal,sex are now bi-sexual practices,homo-lesbian and heterosexual techniques,so who is the most disgusting group among them? The right answer might be all of them! Venereal diseases and AIDS are preventable through sexual abstinence and in monogamous marriages between two people of different sex devoted and committed to one another for a lifetime. A pervert insists this is not so.the pervert insists they are right when all evidence points to the fact that they are wrong. The pervert has no common sense. To have no common sense is to reject wisdom. Wisdom is the way to God,as in wisdom one is wise enough to form a good conscience that is one obedient to God and the teachings of His Holy Church. Read the Huffington Post. The gays form a support group for themselves to rally for one another on that website. They hate Christians! Why because perversion has caused them to reject a reasonably corrective wisdom that is the formation of a good conscience. To question one self and ones own motives is to self critique oneself,to criticize oneself enough to seek the truth about why we are the way we choose to be. If we make poor choices for ourselves than it is wisdom that tells us to get help and to follow good advice as opposed to poor advice. People with addictive behaviors realize that they need help when behavior becomes excessive,this is no different for the sexual addict. A pervert is one that inverts truth to suit themselves. The term pervert in itself is not a cruel word. The demeaning attitude is a perverted attitude an apt description for an inverted sense of the truth on a matter. I love the gay person that is close to me but he is perverted because he will not listen to reason about the consequences of choosing to be gay. I have not rejected him. He has distanced himself from me but when we do get together we are fine together but the gay topic is not to be discussed. So be it! God will help anyone willing to pray on any questionable matter. Only God can provide anyone with wisdom. In truth all people are perverted sinners. Only in God is there no perversion,as only God is perfect,Holy and true. God is Wisdom. Wisdom is the ability to define all that is good to act accordingly and to reject all that is perverted,unholy and impure and evil.

    Psychology Professionals, some of which are Medical Doctors tell us that Sexual perversion is normal. Should we believe these experts or the Bible written years ago ? The Bible tells us that the wisdom of the world is foolishness. If I take the Bible seriously, by todays standards, I am just a fundamentalist and not open to the Holy Spirit. So Be It !

    These days, we should hardly be surprised at anything....But what did Jesus say to those who were asking about stoning the woman caught in adultery? Unfortunately, today we know just about everything going on everywhere....So how are we to respond? Pray for the Church, pray for Priests, pray for the Sisters..., pray for our families, pray for ourselves--that the Lord deliver us all from all evil....Pray, pray, pray!

    To undermine Christian scripture/doctrine is the work of Satan. Like the Communist Progressive they live in a self fulfilling gray world of neither wrong or right. Can God be Lobbied as to one's desires? The path is narrow, not wide. Isaiah 5:24 "Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel."

    To all those who use the word, "pervert": do you have a brother or sister, mother or father, aunt or uncle, cousin, friend who is "gay," and who has died from AIDS in the early years of the pandemic, or living now with HIV/AIDS? Not all persons who are of a different sexual orientation sexually abuse others. Do you understand that human beings can be very discriminating as to whom they show compassion? Such great compassion was/is shown for families and friends of those who died in 911 and for those who lost their lives in 911. Not so in the early years of the AIDS pandemic, and still. If you are truly Christian and a true follower of Christ, all persons are your brothers and sisters. Your role is to love not judge.

    Let the Spirit of the Lord strengthen and guide the Pope to cleanse this homo mafia from the church. Only prayer can do. As faithful Catholics, lets pray for the Church and the Pope for the will power to face this very well structured and financed homo nexus head on and strike them down in the desires of their heart. Let them know that this Church is established by Christ and He has promised that the gates of Hades will not prevail over it. Their doom is very near and sure. May God protect and bless the Holy Church.

    Root out the weeds, lest sexual corruption takes its root in the Church, Gay agendas come as the marker, manifested.

    I spent a good part of my life suffering while discerning God's will: a priest or marry? It literally affects almost everything in terms of consequential logical outflows resulting from that very pivotal decision. Evidently, as a Roman Catholic I can not do both. I risk ending up single forever, with all my spiritual discernments. If this is the will of God, then so be it. However, I, a heterosexual male, am to listen to some hypocritical pompous ego-filled security-seeking structure-protected homosexual or pedophile giving me recommendations on my life while inside a confessional? He better cleanse the Vatican, or I will be praying that rockets and missiles are sent into it!!! Facit indignatio versum, to those of you too ignorant and cowardly who might speak Latin but can't read between the lines in English. If you want it in French or Japanese, let me know. We put money inside the coffers, at each Mass, we expect you to PERFORM as you are expected to; like the rest of us. Politically correct power and control grovelling wimps! Having a Jesuit inside there had me jumping in states of joy, a few months ago. Let us see what happens. And the next time a cardinal or bishop sticks his hand out to have his ring kissed, I will pay someone to kick him in the balls!

    I don't understand what the video had to do with this topic. As the previous poster mentioned it is simply progressive. It supports claims that people don't really need to believe in God or develop a relationship with him. Why would a Catholic website which is based on the religion of God and Christ as true and essential to humanity and eternal life post such a video.
    Please do not try to punk us Catholic Online.
