Apostasy on the Drive Home
Please encourage TG to stay engaged in the Catholic faith. We need insiders with a liberal viewpoint to challenge the institution to live up to the spirit of the faith.
What bothers me about the US evangelical and US Catholic positions is that we don't know what Jesus thought about abortion or differently-gendered people, because He never mentioned it. We do know what he thought about helping poor people and the oppressed, because he told us many times that we should be doing this. Yet those groups slavishly adhere to positions that Jesus did not consider important enough to talk about, while consistently repudiating the charity that He did preach.
Even the apostle Paul did not condemn Muslims or the differently-gendered,
"there neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28
"One day, we will see our animals again in the eternity of Christ. Paradise is open to all of God's creatures."
I trust the Pope.
