"Biblical Teaching on Homosexuality In an Age of Confusion"

Here's another interesting Catholic prejudice apologetic, illustrating once again the "À la carte" approach to biblical imperatives and divine-command morality.

I especially liked this get-out-of-bigotry-free attempt, as though "it's my religious belief" is some kind of absolution (pun entirely intended):
"Some who oppose the teaching of Scripture and the Church have taken to calling opposition to their view “hatred” and “bigotry.”

But we who are of faith must insist that the Church’s opposition to homosexual behavior is rooted in a principled obedience to the Word of God which we believe to be revealed by God and to which we owe docility and obedience. We can say and teach no other than what God has reveled consistently in his Word."
I give it a 4/5 on the chucklemeter.
