A Message To Gay People

I do my best to follow the teachings of the Catholic Church.

As a result, I believe that two men or two women should not be able to marry. (CCC 2357)

You might say that my view on marriage stems from “Hate.”

But:

That’s not true.

My view on marriage stems from love.

A person isn’t going to go to Hell for being gay.

It’s what a person does as a result of being gay that determines where that person goes when they die.

And Jesus says to treat people with love:

Whatever you did to the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did to me. (Matthew 25:40)

What’s my point?

This:

It’s because a person goes to Hell for what they do, not who they are, and the fact that Jesus says to love one another, that is why I say “I don’t think it’s right for a man to marry a man, or a woman to marry a woman.” (Ephesians 4:15)

I want you to be happy.

I don’t want you to face discrimination.

I don’t want you to be treated as less of a person because of your sexual orientation.

I want you to be treated as the children of God that you are.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. (Jeremiah 1:5)

But I feel I must draw a line in the sand somewhere.

I am reminded of these words from Spectre (2015):

C: “When are you going to realize you don’t matter anymore?”

M: “Maybe not. But something has to.”

I have tried, and will continue to try, treating people — whoever they are and wherever they come from — with respect, empathy, and love. Because I believe that’s what Jesus wants me to do.

In conclusion:

In everything you do, keep trying to do God’s will, and I don’t doubt that God will bring you to the place that He wants you to be. Wherever that is.
