Excellent Post

Wednesday, July 20, 2011
My Mom is currently in town, so we're spending most of our days loving on Grams. Needless to say, I haven't had much time to blog, read emails, etc., but I just stole a moment to read the post, "Gay, Catholic and Doing Fine" over at Little Catholic Bubble. It is excellent.

The author is a gay Catholic man in his late 20's and the post is about the impossibility of gay marriage and why the Catholic Church isn't some big meany when it comes to homosexuality. My favorite quote from the post is:
So, yes, it's hard to be gay and Catholic -- it's hard to be anything and Catholic -- because I don't always get to do what I want. Show me a religion where you always get to do what you want and I'll show you a pretty shabby, lazy religion. Something not worth living or dying for, or even getting up in the morning for. That might be the kind of world John Lennon wanted, but John Lennon was kind of an idiot.

Love it.

  1. That is an AWESOME quote...and so very true.
    Thanks for the comment today about homebirth! It's so nice when people are encouraging. :-)

    Also, congratulations on the baptism of Abigail - she will be in my prayers as you prepare for her surgery. Surely Our Lady will be a great comfort to you during that time.
