The Love that Dares Not Speak Its Name has Become the Vice that Won't Shut Up

This observation - "The love that dares not speak its name has become the vice that won't shut up" - made by my friend Peter Maurice - should remind us that all of this "gay marriage" nonsense is about bullying, plain and simple.  We must also never forget that we hate the sin and love the sinner, and that many men and women are tormented by various desires and longings that cannot be fulfilled in a healthy way in this world.  Indeed each of us knows the domination that sin has over us, and each of us knows how much harm sin does, in our lives and in the lives of others, whether we call it sin or not.

So we can understand and love people who devote their lives to any sin, including sexual perversion.  But, as I pointed out here, "gay marriage" would be a choice made by no more than ONE-HALF OF ONE PERCENT of the population.

And for this elite and pretentious minority, we are willing to destroy the basis of civilization - the family.

Has there ever been such cowardice?

The object of all of this is of course to destroy Christianity or, to be more specific, to destroy the Catholic Church.

Once we understand that much of life really is a black and white struggle between good and evil, things become a lot less complex.

I'm sick of hearing, "We must hate the sin and love the sinner," every time a Catholic criticizes homosexual behavior. It never comes up when discussing the drug violence in Mexico. Catholic bloggers don't say, "What Bernie Madoff did was wrong, but remember, we must hate the sin and love the sinner." When the bishops condemn the abuse of immigrants, they never say, "In spite of this, we have to show the people who abuse immigrants that we still love them." It begins to look like the speakers are not really serious about homosexual behavior being wrong. Jesus never spoke like this; "Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!" never had "but although I hate the sin, I love the sinner" attached on the end. There is a time to say one, and a time to say the other, but if you say both at the same time, you undermine both.

But we must love the sinner. And if you love someone, you don't want them to go to Hell. If you love them, you will try your best to help them to go to Heaven. It is Because we love sinners that we must hate their sins. Because it is their sins that separate them from God.

This strange "The Love...that will not shut up" phrase has died - even if some continue to use it. This has nothing to do with "hate the sin...love the sinner." That's a distraction. This phrase developed during the 90's....a period when too many citizens still viewed our demand for first-class citizenship has a "request" for "special rights." It was a dismissive statement - similar to those used for African-Americans. (Example: "Just how much do they want?!?) Frankly, my dears, continue your protestations....Could care less. We know that you know that we won! Get a heterosexual life - seems you are missing one.
