June 28, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Portuguese Catholic bishop has told media that he is “OK” with homosexual relationships and complained that the Church is a “little inflexible” in “cultural matters” like contraception and homosexuality.
[This is the kind of rubbish that is destroying us from within! This is ethics at a whim!]
Acknowledging that the Catholic Church asks homosexuals not to “practice their sexuality,” he continued: “It is certain that a homosexual couple is not theoretical, isn’t it? And affections are translated through this practice, through this psycho-affective fusion of mysterious unity that is the human being.” [Oh yeah right. So a raging lunatic, since his situation is not theoretical. His affections are translated through this practice so...it's ok if he goes running down the street and starts killing people.]
The bishop also implied that Catholics need to be more relaxed about “cultural” issues such as public nudity. The bishop first criticized people who he said are "perfectly illiterate, filled with guilt, malice, sensuality, almost castrated." Such people, he said, will complain to him, "Oh...[sic] you go to the beach and to the pool in trunks."
"And then?" he responded. "What is the problem? I am a citizen like everyone else!"
After being asked by the interviewer if anyone had actually made such a complaint to him, he admitted, "Not directly." [So who told it to you? Big Foot?]
"But," he continued, "people see me in the beach. Let us imagine the following situation: 'So, you were there lying down, next to a topless lady?' And then? What is the matter? Only a pervert goes to the beach and thinks about these things. Malice is often in the way one faces the world." [I do not want to be in the a beach and see this bishop nude! Ugh!]
The bishop said he was thankful for "the educators I had, for looking to the world in a guiltless and uninhibited way."
He complained that his ideas have garnered him opposition from the lay faithful, saying, “I receive so many nasty letters!”
“I don't care, naturally, that there are positions different from my own. What upsets me is that people distort what I defend or decide to use insult and gratuitous aggression.” [And what is there to distort?]
He admitted that he has been corrected by Catholic authorities, saying he has "been warned once or twice” about his statements on contraception, which he referred to as “family planning.” [There are ways on how to deal with callused people. Mercy is definitely not one of them.]
“I do not accept the dogmatism of natural methods. People often do not wish to be realistic.” Nevertheless, he said that “what matters most” is the “great dialogue” [Obamaism. They will dialogue if it favors their agenda. Remember how an elderly priest, peacefully praying and rallying was dragged by police after Notre Dame officials had them arrested for "disturbing the peace and trespassing" during that debacle called "Notre Shame honors Obama"?] on such issues, “because truth is never possessed in full.” [TRUTH IS IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH!!! And in the issue of life, IT IS NOT DEBATABLE!!!]
Holy Father, do the Church a favor.
Laicize this nut case!
