How far must we go before something is done about our so called “Catholic” politicians who live a double life? I’m not talking about those who are married and running around on the side, although that is disgusting. What I am talking about is politicians who parade around proclaiming their Catholic identity and then go on to say how they love their faith, but “for me,” “I personally believe,” “I’m against fill in the blank, but would never force others to accept my beliefs.”
These people are hypocrites of the highest degree. Imagine for a moment if I worked for Apple and decided that I was going to publicly endorse Microsoft Windows. “I believe in Mac OS, but personally, I believe Windows 8 is a much better product.” You can bet any amount you want that employee would be called in and fired on the spot.
Do we really believe what we profess or have we become Catholic a la carte? I would dare to say this would not have been tolerated in times past. These politicians and Catholic liberals (I hate that word used in religious) are modernists at the best. Many young priests call them Protestants, but I hate to offend our Protestant brothers and sisters with such a vile description. Many of them are much more faithful than our “Catholic” brethren.
Today, Governor Christ Christie of New Jersey signed a bill banning reparative therapy for youths with same-sex attraction. Read on below.
Following California’s lead, New Jersey has enacted a ban on reparative therapy for youths with same-sex attractions.
After signing the bill, the office of Gov. Chris Christie, a Catholic (In name), issued a statement emphasizing that the governor disagrees with the Church’s teaching (What gall) on homosexuality. The statement quoted a 2011 interview in which Christie said:
‘Well my religion says it’s a sin. I mean I think, but for me (As if his opinion about Church teaching matters. Where does he get his authority? The Church get’s Her’s from Christ.), I’ve always believed (Believed? I feel. My emotions tell me. Let’s hear the facts governor, not what you believe!) that people are born with the predisposition to be homosexual. (There are no scientific facts to prove this, in fact, there are studies done by the gay community that prove the opposite.) And so I think if someone is born that way it’s very difficult to say then that’s a sin. But I understand that my Church says that, but for me personally (He obviously doesn’t.) I don’t look at someone who is homosexual as a sinner.’ (If you took the time to study what your Church teaches, you would see that She doesn’t teach that someone who has the inclination is a sinner, only someone who acts on the inclination! Is someone who is drawn to rob a bank a bank robber or someone who acts on that inclination?)
“His action on this bill is consistent with his belief that people are born gay and homosexuality is not a sin,” the statement added.
It’s obvious where this is coming from and where it is going. Mr. Christi is going to run for President and he wants to pacify the gay activists. Did he ever consider the thousands of people with same-sex attraction who live a chaste life and want to live a normal, healthy life? I doubt it, because they are the silent majority.
