Coming Soon to a Church Near You
On the 11th March 2012, every Roman Catholic parish priest in the UK was obliged to read out a letter from Archbishop Vincent Nichols and Archbishop Peter Smith. You can read the full text of the letter here....
Letter from Archbishop Cranmer
The gay-lesbian movement is highly organized and has lots of supporters. And they will soon be making inroads into churches everywhere, doing things similar to this.
And the Catholic Church will not have much of a defense strategy against this attack. Because, when our clergy failed to speak out in the 60's about the sins of extra-marital sex, they laid the path for the future. How can they now condemn homosexual activity if they failed to condemn other sexual sins?
The tolerance of co-habitation by almost everyone in the Church reduces our ability to judge the actions of homosexuals.
Failure to preach the full Gospel back then ensures that we cannot preach it now. We should have taken the path of unpopularity when it was first presented. It would be a heck of a lot easier now to stand our ground.
