Catholic bishops developing new guidelines for ministry to gays

Go back to the drawing board guys. This document is cruel and ignorant, but I guess it shouldn’t surprise me, considering the source:

The document explains the Catholic view of same-sex attraction as ''disordered,'' emphasizing that sexuality was given as a gift from God to draw men and women together to marry and have children. Gay relationships ''violate the true purpose of sexuality,'' as does adultery and contraception, the authors wrote.

I agree with Sam Sinnett, president of Dignity USA when he says:

…it was clear the document was prepared ''by none of us for whom it is intended.'' ''They speak in willful ignorance about people in same-gender families. They speak in willful ignorance about homosexuality—sexuality in general,'' Sinnett said. ''They are continuing to discriminate against us.''
