Bishop Ruins Gay and Lesbian Gathering by Speaking the Truth

HT St. John’s Valdosta blog – Bishop Jaime Soto, Coadjutor for the Diocese of Sacramento, addressed the National Association of Gay and Lesbian Ministries (at their invitation). Several members, expecting the liberal affirmation they were used to, walked out when Bishop Soto surprised them by speaking the TRUTH of the faith, including this statement:

“Sexual intercourse, outside of the marriage covenant between a man and a woman, can be alluring and intoxicating but it will not lead to that liberating journey of true self-discovery and an authentic discovery of God. For that reason, it is sinful. Sexual relations between people of the same sex can be alluring for homosexuals but it deviates from the true meaning of the act and distracts them from the true nature of love to which God has called us all. For this reason, it is sinful.”

ORANGE COUNTY
Alejandra in Orange County passed along this amazing report of how one little girl’s faith helped to save the life of a baby: “Tim came to me with his daughter and told me that his little girl (about 4 years old) told him before he went to Planned Parenthood, ‘Take this plate of cookies and give it to a Mommy. Tell her to keep them so that she can give them to her baby when he is born.’

“When Tim approached one of the women that he talked to last Saturday morning, he told her the message of his little daughter. The woman broke into tears and the thought of not being able to give her baby the plate of cookies that Tim’s daughter sent her made her
decide to keep her baby!”
