It should come as no surprise that when a Catholic priest tells his Catholic congregation he is gay, he receives a standing ovation.
He goes on to explain what the Church is increasingly teaching - that if you're gay it's because God made you that way. Homosexuality is no longer a disordered appetite, it's a gift from God. Of course no actual physical penetration is allowed. Other than that, however, it's everything Dr. Phil or Dr. Drew would say about same sex attraction.
The Church, as far as I know, is still out when it comes to the transgender issue. Mostly, at this point, if you verbally question the modern approach to sexuality you're accused of wanting to murder LGBTQ individuals. Which shuts down debate.
All of this comes from that dance that the Church is doing with the post-Christian, secular Left. I'm sure the Church will survive the long term, but it would be nice if the Church wouldn't lean on that promise to downplay the short term spiritual ramifications of such an unholy compromise.
I guess we'll have to wait and see.
