A homosexual Catholic Priest has joined Vice President Biden in accusations about homophobia.
They might both do well to review the definition of the word, Homophobic: “Fear, hatred, or mistrust of lesbians and gay men.”
The firing of this openly homosexual Priest, or the opposition to homosexuality by Presidential candidates does not rise to the level of this definition. The position of the Vatican and various Presidential candidates is not founded in fear, hatred or mistrust. It is based on what the Scripture teaches on the issue of homosexuality; that it is a sin and an abomination. There is quite a difference between reality and the accusation of this team of homosexual supporters (the Priest and Biden), who might both be called “Scripture-phobic”. While they are joined by many others in thumbing their nose at God, it does not change that fact that Scripture is very clear on the subject, and they (the Scripture-phobes) reject the Scriptures.
Franklin Graham issued a statement of support for the Vatican:
“The Vatican fired an openly gay priest Saturday after he came out right before their meeting of the world’s bishops. The priest said in a press conference that his coming out was a “difficult and tough decision in the church’s homophobic world.” I have news for everyone – Believing what God’s Word says about homosexuality is not homophobic! Firing the gay priest was the right thing for the Catholic Church to do. The priest said in several interviews that he was happy and proud to be a gay priest. One should not be “happy and proud” to go against God’s will, His laws, and His very design for creation.”
It would be reasonable to expect the Catholic Church to remain true to its creed and doctrine (the Bible). The Vatican should be commended for it’s commitment to the Word of God on this issue.
The Pope is not homophobic.
“It’s not about right or left, it’s about Right or Wrong.”
