Some Thoughts on the Catholic Sexual Diversity Conference

Here are some brief thoughts about More Than A Monologue: Sexual Diversity And The Catholic Church

1. Anyone 35 and over can tell you that the issue of sexual diversity has not been a monologue. In fact in the 80's and 90's there was practical rebellion by Priests and Religious in Parishes, on College Campuses, in publications, etc against many facets of traditional Catholic teaching on the subject.

2. There is no mention of scripture or tradition in this article. Again we see a crazy notion that the Pope etc can just alter revelation at whim

3. What do "women priests" have to do with any of this?

4. Why exactly when we are dealing with the most religious illiterate generation of Catholics in modern memory should their views hold that great weight?

5. Why do we assume the Church was wrong on such things as birth control and related topics. In fact a good case could be made that all the Church warnings of what would come too pass is coming to pass right now in live vid HF TV color?

6. What about schism? A radical change in Church doctrine would cause a schism like we have never seem?

7. What about the Eastern Orthodox -The second lung of the Church. They are still upset because we change some words in the creed up? Can you imagine if the Church without consulting them changed teaching on sexuality in a radical way.
