Wow! What a fabulous article. I’m really impressed with Kristina Keneally. 🙂
I also very much like the quotes you highlighted above.
I found a couple of other points that are worth noting.
McBrien also outlined other theological points of view, including the argument that homosexual acts are morally neutral, because the morality of a sexual act depends on the quality of the relationship of the people involved; or that homosexual acts are preferable to living a life where one can never give expression to one’s sexuality.
and Kristina’s final paragraph:
Taking a contrary view to Church teaching is not a position I come to lightly. It is formed by prayer, reading, and reflection. It gives me no relish to be at odds with my Church. But it also gives me no joy to see people who are created in God’s image unable to fully express their humanity, or live with the rights and dignity that heterosexual people are afforded. I act in good conscience — as a Catholic, I can do nothing else.
Thanks for posting this. It was well worth reading. 🙂
