Archbishop John Nienstedt of Minnesota has dared to tell his flock, including his priests, that marriage is between a man and a woman. How radical! And to make matters worse, he is backing a proposed amendment to the state Constitution that would define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
As to be expected, many of the usual activist homosexuals and their supporters are in a rage. Here's the problem in a nutshell: Activist (and active) homosexuals don't want equal rights, something we've never tried to prevent them from attaining. They want you and I to approve of the fact that they have deviant sex with a member of the same sex. It always comes back to this question: why would a group of people wish to define who they are by the manner in which they have sex? It could only mean that their sexual practices, abhorrent to most heterosexuals who have given it any thought, must be central to their lives - even as they loudly proclaim the opposite.
Listen to the position of Archbishop Nienstedt and tell me this is a "hater" of people. You can't - because he isn't. It's really that simple.

How DARE those Catholics do Catholic things
Next thing you know they might start having mass and communion:
On Tuesday, the archdiocese announced it was launching a local chapter of a national ministry called Courage “to support men and women who struggle with homosexual tendencies and to motivate them to live chaste and fruitful lives in accordance with Catholic Church teachings.”This is fully consistent with Catholic beliefs and teaching which unlike protestant teaching states that it is the act rather than the attraction that is sinful.
As you might guess the idea that Gay Catholics might actually take Catholic seriously has some up in arms. read the rest
