SPEAK OUT AGAINST EVIL – 3

August 14, 2015

Homosexual activity is indeed an abomination! But no, offenders should not be put to death.

Catholic bishops and priests should tell it like it truly is. Call a spade a spade. Do not be politically correct. Do not be afraid to offend, since such homosexual acts are offensive. Speak clearly about sin, rather than making it comfortable for sinners to remain in their sin.

Swiss bishop apologizes for calling homosexual acts ‘abomination’

 

Catholic World News – August 13, 2015

Under heavy public pressure, a Swiss Catholic bishop has issued a public apology for a statement in which he referred to homosexual activity as an abomination and cited Old Testament passages saying that offenders should be put to death.

Bishop Vitus Huonder of Chur sent a 3-page letter to clerics in which he said it had been a “mistake” to make his comments—which he had delivered at a forum in Germany—“on a theological and academic level.” He said that he should have shown a draft of his talk to colleagues, who would have warned him on the likely outcry.

The bishop faces criminal complaints on charges that his statement was “inciting people to crimes” against homosexuals.
