Well, I think that anything said about this being a publicity stunt is a HUGE stretch. I see the lack of rights for a gay couple (as well as the ignorance and homophobia in this forum) to be an issue of human dignity, which is in line with Catholic Social Teaching. I see the disrespect towards each other both in this forum and towards gay people (especially with the "keep it out of my face" attitude... God forbid you say that to a straight person) as really disheartening. It would make me ashamed of being Catholic... except my Catholic roots go pretty deep, and I believe there is room for intellectual conversation between those who carry differing opinions. No one needs to be crucified here.
So, as a young, educated Catholic, who enjoys learning and thinking through all sides of an issue... maybe it is right to say that the future of this country is completely screwed in your eyes. In that case, I will keep praying.
I would get my money back for the school I went to, if this is what you were taught. Also if other Catholics are teaching this as ok I will have to pray for there soul, because they put it in grave danger by saying a mortal sin is to be excepted as OK in the Catholic Church And this is not and opinion , it is a fact in the Catholic Church, always has been and never did or will ever change.
