Homosexuality:  What’s all the Fuss

My 19 year-old brother, Jared, recently shared his thoughts in a brief essay on today’s politically correct, post-modern concept of “tolerance.”  I’m admittedly biased, but I thought he exhibited insight beyond his years.  He did, however, open the door for a debate on whether Christians focus too much attention on the sin of homosexuality while giving other sins a pass.  His musings and my response follow:

Judge Roy Moore & Foundation for Moral Law Welcome Court of Appeals Decision Reversing Ban on Prayer

Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore and the Foundation for Moral Law hailed the decision issued yesterday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in Hinrichs v. Speaker of the House, Indiana General Assembly as a victory in the battle against prayer censorship in the halls of government. The Hinrichs decision reversed an order by a federal district court banning prayers given in the name of Jesus in the Indiana legislature, the result Judge Moore and the Foundation had asked for in its amicus brief filed before the Court—but the Court did so only because the particular plaintiffs in the case did not have legal standing to bring their lawsuit.

Open letter to Most Reverend George H. Niederauer

Most Reverend George H. Niederauer                         October 29, 2007
Archbishop of San Francisco
One Peter Yorke Way
San Francisco, CA 94109-6602

Your Excellency: 
During your first visit to Most Holy Redeemer parish on Sunday October 7th, 2007, you gave Our Lord in Holy Communion to members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (SPI) a homosexual activist group widely known for its attacks upon and mockery of the Catholic Faith.  Your subsequent October 11th apology notes that you did not recognize these “strangely dressed persons” as members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and that these individuals should not have received Holy Communion, nor should the minister of the Church administer the Sacrament to them.

I Believe in Miracles: Damming Demons

Demons. They crawled all over his paper. But this was no one-stroke teen messing around with adolescent symbols of dark abodes. This was Bruce.
Bruce was committed heart and soul to the devil. He told me, “Paganism is my religion. I worship the devil.” And he meant it. Other youth scrawled irreverent images on occasion; however, to Bruce it was a soul surrender. Therefore, when I noted his full-paged “art,” I took it in stride.

Praying for those who are weak

When I was a substance abuse counselor at the county jail, I made a lot of friends. Some kept in touch even after I left there for another position. One fellow was Lance. He wrote me, then he drifted out of sight. Time passed and then a letter came:

Evil

Man has long asked how a loving God could allow evil to exist in the world.  It’s an age-old philosophical question that can cause those who want faith to doubt and those who want to doubt to mock faith.  A Christian’s answer to this question is “free will,” a concept critics may regard as something reduced to a convenient cliche.  The truth is, though, that this is a most fascinating subject to inquisitive minds.
