An Episcopal pastor, not a priest (since the Episcopal Church does not have a valid priesthood), has stated homosexuality can “revitalize” Christianity. Isn’t that why the Episcopal Church has been dwindling in numbers and continues to do such? Homosexuality can’t revitalize Christendom, only corrupt it and sodomize it.
As typical, “Christian” arguments for homosexuality are devoid of substance and are all emotion. For example, “Love is love”, or “If straights can get married than gays should too”. Ok, then how come Jesus Christ did not mention it even when He stated “God made them male and female” and for which reason “a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, therefore the two are one flesh” (Matthew 19:4-5, Mark 10:6-7)? The Church recognizes Matrimony as a Sacrament and as such it cannot be changed from what Christ instituted it as.
So the common accusation is those of us who oppose homosexuality, even gay “marriage” and unions, oppose love. That’s not true. We disapprove of any sexual relationship that’s not pro-creative in the confines of marriage, which is what marriage is about: procreation. While love is important in a marriage, love itself is not the purpose of marriage, otherwise you could marry your parent, sibling, cousin or pet. You don’t have to have sex with somebody to love them; in fact, just because you have sex with somebody doesn’t mean you love them. A cheating boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife doesn’t show love by having sex with another person. A rapist certainly does not show love towards the one they have sex with (against their will). A one-night stand doesn’t mean your one-time partner loves you. So obviously the opposition to homosexuality is the sex itself, which is “intrinsically disordered” (cf. CCC 2357).
