»... der Schluss von der Überzeugung, Homosexualität sei in den Augen der Bibel Sünde, der Homosexuelle aber von Gott geliebt und von den Menschen entsprechend zu behandeln, auf Angst oder gar Hass gegenüber Homosexuellen („Homophobie“) für einen gläubigen Menschen nicht unmittelbar nachzuvollziehen...« (hier)
Marc, vor gut einer Woche:
»We want a label to be subsumed into. And thus Meier, in claiming the label “gay,” says “I want the world to know the truth about who I am,” because personal identity has been wonderfully reduced, and we can say — without fear of contradiction — that who I am is gay, or who I am as straight.
This reduction is the primary reason Meier makes the tired, required leap from what the Church says — that homosexuality is disordered — to what he claims the Church says — “LGBT youth are hearing that they are disordered.” Our culture defines individuals by their genital urges, and thus any rejection of a sexual behavior is immediately heard as a rejection of the individual. If who you are is a homosexual, then there is no distinction between being told “homosexuality is disordered” and “you are disordered.” While blurring this distinction and allowing ourselves to exist as walking erections certainly allows for easy, sure-fire, and oh-so-safe criticism of the Catholic Church, how small it renders the human person! What a piece of work becomes man, how lacking in depth, how easily negated, how boring and how bored!« (hier; überaus lesenswert!)
