“A gay person who is seeking God, who is of good will — well, who am I to judge him?” the pope said.
Ang sinabi ni Pope Francis, “A gay person who is seeking God, who is of good will — well, who am I to judge him?”
Pero maraming tao na ang basa sa statement ni Pope Francis eh…
“A gay person who is living in sin — well, who am I to judge him?”
Kaya nagkaroon ng ganitong T-Shirt…
…na para bang ang ibig sabihin eh, WALANG BASAGAN NG TRIP. Kaso wala namang ganyang sinabi ang Santo Papa kaya saan galing yang statement na yan?
Kung papansining maigi, walang binago ang Santo Papa sa itinuturo ng Simbahan sa statement niya…
Chastity and homosexuality
2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.”142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.

Mahal ng Santo Papa at ng Simbahan ang mga homosexual person, kaya hindi kailanman babaguhin ang katuruan tungkol sa bagay na ito.
We have a Church who is firm in her teachings, and we have a Pope who is merciful and compassionate in his way of teaching.
Nakakalungkot isipin na maraming gustong manatiling Katoliko – manatiling Kristiyano – pero ang gusto nilang maging katuruan ng Simbahan e yung naaayon sa kung anong gustong marinig ng mga tenga nila.
Kailangan natin ng Simbahan na hindi nagbabago ng katuruan. Kung ang Simbahan e magpapabagu-bago ng itinuturo, anung punto ng papanatiling Katoliko? Kanya-kanyang paniniwala na lang dahil ganun din ang sumatutal.
Isang bagay na napansin ko, maraming bumabaluktot sa salita ng Santo Papa.
True openness involves remaining steadfast in one’s deepest convictions, clear and joyful in one’s own identity, while at the same time being “open to understanding those of the other party” and “knowing that dialogue can enrich each side”. What is not helpful is a diplomatic openness which says “yes” to everything in order to avoid problems, for this would be a way of deceiving others and denying them the good which we have been given to share generously with others. – Evangelii Gaudium #251
Ganyan si Pope Francis: Open yet remaining steadfast.
Mga tuwid lang ang binabaluktot.
Sa nagbabasa nito, if you are a homosexual person who is seeking God, who is of good will, who is willing to live according to the will of God, this site can help you…
