The Catholic Church along with society has almost always condemned the LGBT community. In my ignorance I too found these people wrong……until becoming acquainted with some and have realized that these people have the same needs and desires that the rest of us have. This is not a choice, this is how God made them. I belong to a Catholic community where many gays and lesbians are fully participating and many are more spiritual than other Catholic’s. I also know of a lesbian couple who were very faithful Catholics that left the Church because they did not feel welcome. They are educated, generous, loving and would be an asset to their community. I also have many friends who have children that are gay or lesbian and have been tortured by the Church’s stand because they totally love these family members! We must love and accept these people. Follow Christ’s admonition to love your neighbor as yourself.
