US-Deacon, "Jesus did not preach against abortion and same-sex marriage"

Deacon Steve Hester of St. Paul Catholic Church in Lexington Kentucky, claimed in a recent video (November 3) that Jesus "knew that safe sex and education ... are the actual way to reduce abortions."

"Now Jesus didn't preach against abortion at all. Now I don't know why He didn't. I don't believe He thought killing babies was OK. And rest assured there was abortion back then. People have been figuring out how to end pregnancy early since they figured out what pregnancy was. So it's not as if He was unaware. But maybe He didn't preach against abortion because He knew that safe sex and education rather than legislation are the actual way to reduce abortions. But He also knew that we wouldn't end up believing in safe sex or education. So, it was a moot point. You'll have to ask Him when you get there."

"And He didn't preach against same-sex marriage or homosexuality either, even though there were LGBT persons back then too. And maybe He didn't preach against homosexuality because He was here to teach us how to love, not who to love. And when He did preach about marriage, it was to stress its permanence, its insolubility. He taught us how to love our partners for life, He didn't teach us who those partners should be."

What on earth is this guy is rabbiting on about on about?? Clearly he is unaware of the Ten Commandments and the Torah, Every Jew at the times of Christ was at least aware of the significant stories such as God's punishment on the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah.The basis of Jewish law and tradition (halakha) is the Torah (also known as the Pentateuch or the Five Books of Moses). According to rabbi… More
he does not understand the Gospel ,and he is spreading heresies
I don’t know how this stupid invert could be a deacon...Speaking in a so indecent way...We do NOT want people like this in our Church! Apostate!
True dear Cuthburt. All the same his vacuous imbecility cannot but elicit a slight stirring of compassion in the heart.
Poor guy has a pea brain.
Right! and God never said, "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's husband", I don't know why he didn't, but maybe he knew many women would become radical feminists and there would be no talking sense into them about anything, let alone fear of Eternal damnation...
