    It probably will fail. Just how things seem to roll.

    Entirely consistent with Christ's teachings. No wonder the gay lobby rejects it.

    That brings to question - how can children POSSIBLY be raised in the faith, if their "parents" are teaching them homoseuxality is not sinful? Contradiction?

    That's right-on. In fact, ANY sinful-behaviour-oriented outreach must challenge those caught in their sin to seek God's help to rise above their condition.

    I saw this as well. the gay activists rejected it immediately. They didnt even bother reading it.

    As with any Christian Church, the Catholic Church has a commandment to reach out to all people and invite them to repentence. There is one standard to all people. For some reason gays seem to think this standard doesnt apply to them and that they are being treated unfair by requiring EXACTLY THE SAME STANDARD AS EVERYONE ELSE.

    Yes but isn't that really the same with all of these "groups"? that includes race, color and creed. Really bottom line is this we all put our drawers on the same way: We pull them up so we all need to get over it already. Of course easier said than done.

    That's a HORRIBLE assumption. Do you realize the fallacy of your argument?
    FWIW, Priests who molest boys are 'gay' anyway.

    I deleted that post. I don't need any trouble over this issue here.
