Archbishop Cordileone's strange behaviour again: New Cardinals: Homosexualism Is Francis' Main Selection Criterion

Will someone please define "homosexualism"?

I meant "homosexualist".

Can we assume the filth and moral depravity he previously posted he now repudiates with a holy hatred? Has that been determined? If not, how is it possible that Archbishop Cordileone knows about this man's advocacy of moral crimes, and yet will ordain him..??! Such an ordination would be a sacrilege, because anyone advocating these abominations is not in the state of grace. Is it certain …More

Such an ordination would be a sacrilege, because anyone advocating these abominations is not in the state of grace. Is it certain Cordileone knows? Has anyone -- Joseph Sciambra, perhaps? -- taken steps to make sure Cordileone is informed....??

It doesn't matter if he has repudiated it or not! His proclivity is enough to disqualify him from being ordained as deacon, priest or anything else in the Church! For Heaven's sake, that is such a huge problem in the Church right now. These people cannot truly change their bent, they can only refuse to give in to temptation. And when they are ordained, they become a danger to children and young …More

Interesting point...even given the transforming power of God's grace, one cannot assume 1) that his sordid reputation and social media posts will not be dredged up and used to disgrace the Church and cause scandal at some point in the future or 2) that he may not fall again into the same disordered depravity when admitted into close relations with families, etc., as is normally required with the …More

And this whole thing with the permanent diaconate is suspect to begin with....

Just checked out the stream. I wonder if he’s the one who promised celibacy? It’s rare to have a celibate permanent deacon, to say the least, even though it is the ideal, and it’s been discussed elsewhere how even married clerics are bound by the law to perpetual continence. But, I always wonder why a celibate would want to be ordained to the permanent diaconate. Anyhow, he seems to be a man who …More

What's worse is they are not even "rosaries" -- just hedonistic rainbow beads; unrepentant homosexuals probably can't bear to handle actual rosaries -- they would burn their fingers. They need to convert just like anyone who does not obey God's very strict laws regarding human sexuality.

Our Traditionalist Priest explained "there is no parvity of matter with regard to sins against chastity"…More

Our Traditionalist Priest explained "there is no parvity of matter with regard to sins against chastity" -- that is, no deliberate sin against chastity is ever venial -- it is always grave.

If he is a healed Homosexual ,why not to be ok? We are all sinners .we do repent of our sins ,don't we ?

GOD has a path we all must follow. This can be from GOD. "IF" he is truly sorry for his sins and repented with all of his heart. It can be a good thing and may bring other homosexual's into the Church as well. We wait and see what he will do next.

@Just me No you're wrong. The Church has officially declared that homosexuals cannot be ordained as deacons/priests. Please see the 1961 and 2005 documents specifically on this subject. It's not a case of 'repentance' - it's a case of if one suffers from this specific disorder, then he is not eligible to be ordained - repentant or not.

@kevin Thanks I didn't know that.
Kevin
@Just me You're welcome. It's a common misconception, not helped by the fact that various bishops/cardinals still defiantly continue to ordain homosexuals - some chaste, some openly practising 'gays' - as priests/deacons, in spite of official Church teaching.
Just me
@Kevin I wasn't sure if they could or not. That is why I said it can be from GOD. But now, I know under any circumstances they can not be. I appreciate that. Yes! We see it all the time. But those men never gave up their sins and never repented. Worse, they push it on others. Such a sad thing to see being done to Our Holy Catholic Church. One day, all this will cease to be.

So, Abp Cordileone bans Nancy Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion one week, and then contravenes Church teaching in ordaining a homosexual as deacon the next. And not only a homosexual, but one who has a penchant for blasphemy, it would appear. What is the matter with Abp Cordileone? Has he got a problem?
P. O'B
Unless this guy has made a public abjuration of his errors...well, on second thought, no that wouldn't be enough. The Church doesn't need him, even if he has dumped his scandalous baggage.
Just me
"If" he has repented with all of his heart and knows he has sinned and has stopped all his evil acts, this might be a good thing. It may help other homosexuals to wake up, or to rethink what they are doing is evil and that they too can change. Maybe? Hopefully? One never knows what plan GOD has for us. This could be his path GOD put him on.

New Yorkers can now choose “X” as a gender marker on the driver license.

If sex is not binary and it's possible to be a sex other than male or female, why wouldn't you just put that on the license rather than "x"? Oh, right, because there are no other sexes, there are only males and females, and gender ideology is an enormous load of insane bullshit.
