A Catholic priest who hosted a mandatory assembly told seniors at Minneapolis’ DeLaSalle high school that single parents and children who are adopted are not normal, preached against same-sex marriage, and a Catholic couple who presented with the priest told the students gay marriage was akin to bestiality, all apparently in an effort to influence the seniors — soon to be of legal voting age — to vote for the anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment facing Minnesota, according to a report.
voting age vote anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment facing minnesota report
DeLaSalle touts itself as “a diverse community of teachers, learners, alumni, parents and volunteers,” whose “mission is to serve students from Minneapolis and surrounding communities who seek a high-quality, values-based, academic preparation for life,” and to “fulfill this mission, in part, by respecting and affirming our heritage as a Catholic High school in the Lasallian tradition.”
The students, however, to their credit, were not having it.
While the name of the Catholic priest was not disclosed, the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, who sent the priest, is headed by the infamous Archbishop John Clayton Nienstedt (image, top,) who in 2010 began an anti-same-sex marriage campaign by producing and mailing to Minnesota residents 400,000 DVDs proclaiming the sins of same-sex marriage. Nienstedt has banned gay prayer services, “refused the Eucharist to students wearing rainbow buttons,” and has publicly banned “open dissension” from his priests on matters related to same-sex marriage.

    My real answer? This is news? This kind of thing goes on all the time. These comments could have been made by a Muslim, an Evangelical, a Jew, etc...All religions are guilty of making blanket statements with nothing but their own opinions to back them up. Citing scientific studies they say homosexuals are bad parents, child molesters, carriers of disease, have far higher rates of domestic abuse, lower life expectancy, and a host of other problems simply because they are gay. (And almost every single "study" they cite comes from a man named Paul Cameron. Google him. It makes for some very interesting reading.)
    Personally I have an odd respect for The Westboro Baptist Church. Wait! Don't freak out! The reason I say that is the only honest argument against homosexuality is "I think homosexuality is wrong because of my religious beliefs." That argument is based on the true fact that they believe what they say. It is honest. "Adopted children are not normal" is an ignorant opinion with nothing to base it on. It is not a fact. Had the priest stood up and said, "This is the church's opinion on gays marrying..." that would be fine with me.

    I have noticed an escalating use of more and more outrageous arguments wrapped in "science" and "our right to express our religious beliefs." I think the far religious right realized many years ago they would never win an argument using only the Bible when it comes to the law.. The claim that anti-discrimination laws infringe on their right to Freedom of Religion does not hold up in court. As they try to pass more constitutional amendments banning not only gay marriage but civil unions as well, it becomes clear not even separate but equal is acceptable to them. (they also know there is good chance The Supreme Court will strike them down.) Hence the more outrageous the claims against gay men and women are becoming. There is actually a statistic claiming 17% of all gay men eat feces. It comes directly from a discredited "study" by Paul Cameron and it is still quoted as fact by some in the far religious right.
    That is why I said what I did about Fred Phelps and his in-bred family. They base their hate on an honest conviction. Equating gay marriage with bestiality was an outright lie and the priest knew it when he said it. That's not only hateful it's cowardly and desperate.
    Unfortunately it's nothing new.

    How Do Pagans Feel About Homosexuality?

    Pagans and Wiccans accept homosexuality and bisexuality as natural and unchangeable orientations for a minority of adults. Most groups welcome people without regard to their sexual orientation. Most regard sex as a gift of the Goddess to be enjoyed responsibly, and in accordance with one's sexual orientation. That is, sexual orientation is morally neutral. Sexual behavior -- whether between two persons of the same sex or of opposite sexes -- only becomes immoral if it is unsafe, manipulative or non-consensual.

    An individual Wiccan generally acknowledges that female and male energies permeate the universe. The sun is regarded as male; the moon female. The rain is male; the nurturing earth is female. They also contain both both female and male energies within themselves. Their beliefs and rituals help them sense these energies and achieve an optimum balance.

    There are also a few exclusively gay and exclusively lesbian Neo-pagan groups.

    There may be a few Pagans or Wiccans who do not share this view but 99.99% of Pagans accept homosexuality as normal and natural

    Although you know my feelings regarding religion, I agree with some of things you've written. The idea of male and female energy for instance. Obviously I would not be here without a male and a female, ying and yang so to speak. I also like the idea of sexual orientation as morally neutral. How many arguments would simply vanish if we all believed that. I would argue anything unsafe, manipulative or non-consensual would probably be immoral.
    The idea of everyone containing both male and female energy becomes a little to metaphysical for me personally. I do think most of us have quailities that are usually described as male or female.
    As for the acceptance of homosexuality as natural, obviously I agree, but the truth is whether any religion does or doesn't is not an issue for me. Beyond the 1st Amendment which guarentees freedom of religion for all Americans, I don't think anyone should be required to accept anyone else in the privacy of their home or church. I certainly don't. What I was ranting about earlier was the fact some religious groups are arguing any acceptance of homosexuality is somehow preventing them from the free expression of their beliefs. If a city bans discrimination in employment based on sexual orientation that is an infringment on their rights which, when they argue it in court, does not hold up under the scrunity of law...
    And here I go again, up on that soap box. I'm even annoying myself today. :^D

    the Abraham Religions hate homosexuality

    Pagan Religions always Accepted it as normal
    gay marriage was very accepted back in ancient pagan civilizations

    homosexual marriages were common till the 12th century then the church pretty much started thier hate homosexual its a sin campaign

    im not saying Pagan Religion is better than Abraham ones
    im saying if you want concepts of Freedom Liberty and justice
    those are found in Pagan Religions

    we believe everyone has the right to the pursuit of happiness as long as it does not interfere with the free will of another person

    For about 20+ years in Spain the Catholic Church stole babies from single mothers shortly after giving birth. They would lie and say the babies died, they would threaten the mothers and then put the babies up for adoption. A female making the difficult choice to put her baby up for adoption and going the through the whole process of screening parents and signing away their baby is a normal and healthy thing. The church bulling and stealing and psychologically scaring women and their babies is abnormal and unhealthy.

    People like this dude need to be locked away. Are they really that far out of Reality??

    I was a product of a prostitute mother and some John of hers and was a ward of the state for 4 years before I was adopted by a wonderful man and his wife, who became my mother and father.. I worshiped this man, moreso than Mom, just for the fact I was a Boy and my Dad was my inspiration for all that I did...

    I would hope that I came out normal and I do believe I have contributed to the good of society in my 74 years...

    Of course this same dude would condemn me because I dont believe in all the religious dogma, and people like him are just a part of the reason why....

    Come on really? This is the most idiotic thing ever. This "priest" has no right to call him self a "priest" of anything. That is so wrong. What is worse is the "Arch Bishop" condoned this insolent bullsh*t. How are kids supposed to think for themselves if they have insolent, irrational ideas stuffed down their throat and told they have to take it. Are they going to tell the kids to rape children and the unwilling? May the Goddess and God help us all.

    Another typical brainwashing session of a homophobic hateful priest at at Catholic Prep High School.

    Too bad these idiot priest don't realize that roughly 10% of their students are homosexual and that they will evenutally turn on the church for this, that is if they haven't been raped already.
