What a surprise was in store for a Long Beach California gathering of active homosexuals involved in 'ministry". Bishop Jaime Soto told them, in loving terms the truth about their sinful lifestyle. What a magnificent shepherd, who loves his sheep enough to gently correct them and lead them to truth. I hope he gives Courage (pun intended) to other bishops to do the same, notably on Long Island. "This is true for all of us. It is also true for men and women who are homosexual. We are called to live and love in a manner that brings us into respectful, chaste relationships with one another and an intimate relationship with God. We should be an instrument of God's love for one another.
"Let me be clear here," said the bishop. "Sexual intercourse, outside of the marriage covenant between a man and a woman, can be alluring and intoxicating but it will not lead to that liberating journey of true self-discovery and an authentic discovery of God. For that reason, it is sinful.
"Sexual relations between people of the same sex can be alluring for homosexuals but it deviates from the true meaning of the act and distracts them from the true nature of love to which God has called us all. For this reason, it is sinful." (To read Bishop Soto's speech in its entirety, '>click here.
