I have read many of these articles and presented similar findings to my professors. They reject any connection between homosexuality and child abuse.
Catholics follow the teachings of the Church. I pray that our bishops become more vocal in publically denouncing those who present themselves as Catholics in favor of proChoice.
I'm trying to understand why the HHS mandate supports 100% reimbursement for birth control instead of maintenence for diabetes or heart disease. Even if we are willing to throw morals aside to save tax dollars, focusing on a single aspect of healtcare is a poor financial investment. Providing greater coverage for any particular area of care discriminates against those who require a different intervention or treatment.
I've saved this article, and will use it as referrence for my college classes. Our textbooks are socially correct, and deny any study that is detrimental to the GLBT political agenda. I will also look for additional articles from this author. TY.
I'm not sure that Cardinal Dolan invited the President in an effort to put differences aside. Diplomacy does not occur without stategic considerations. I have great respect for Fr. Pavone's opinion. I am curious to see how this plays out.
I trust Cardinal Dolan. Inviting the President to speak doesn't condone his politcal positions. It may provide the President the opportunity to readdress his positions in a more charitable or practical manner.
Americans would be far better served if mandates provided for dental care, vision care, or any other specific healthcare. The administrations choice to focus on artificial contraception is clearly not routed in any examination of medical priority. I fear the motive behind the mandate is to limit the influence of the Church in America.
The Church is still recovering from sex abuse scandals decades ago. If we tolerate homosexuality in leadership, we will not regain the trust of those lost when we failed to act decisively. I love my Church.
