Comments: AffCath: Church must practice respect it teaches

Am I alone in wondering why Affirming Catholicism is so focussed on lesbian and gay christians?

To Ethelreda. " YES ! "

(Thought you'd passed on years ago!)

I'm sorry, Laurence, I don't quite get your remark. Is it very well known that the main interest of Affirming Catholicism is gay and lesbian issues? What a pity if it is.

Ah, the beauty is that Lesbian and Gay Christians can come to the foot of the cross, and find forgiveness and repentence, and be regenerated into image of Christ as well.

That is the true Affirmation that we all need.

Trouble is, Jim, the fundamentalists want to erect a gate at the Cross, and to ensure that only ones who get to approach it are those whose repentance they approve of.
