Douchebags of the day: Conn. Catholic Ministry Aims to Keep Gays celibate…Good Luck!
Believing a gay orientation is not a sin but acting on it is, the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Hartford, Conn., is offering a ministry aimed at helping gays and lesbians stay celibate.
“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,’” the Hartford Courant reports.
Archdiocesan official Robert Pallotti said the ministry is designed to “help people with same-sex attraction lead moral and fulfilling lives,” a statement that offended LGBT leaders. It sends the message that other gays and lesbians “are not moral and are not leading fulfilling lives, and that is not true,” Linda Estabrook, executive director of the Hartford Gay and Lesbian Health Collective, told the Courant.
