CHARLOTTE, NC, April 7, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The bishop of Charlotte is backing a Dominican nun who has been at the center of a fiery controversy since last month when she gave a speech promoting Catholic teaching on sexuality to students at Charlotte Catholic High School.
If you don't like Roman Catholic teaching, don't be a Roman Catholic. If you don't like what they teach in their schools, don't send your children there.
The nun in question was reportedly wholly consistent with the official positions of the Roman Catholic Church.
Historically, that church has made mistakes and had to back away from positions it once held. All during its history, there have been those who have called to it to change. Those calls have been coming from the light but also from darkness. All change being demanded or desired that is trending at any given time is not necessarily coming from the light.
There is no way that the Roman Catholic Church can move to condone males sodomizing each other and call that a move to greater enlightenment.Males sodomizing each other (and sodomy period) is a fundamental error. It is heading in the direction of chaos. It is profoundly disordered.
Those who practice it should stop immediately and forever. All homosexual activity is disordered, an error. Regardless of the level of temptation, it should be avoided.
The more you practice overcoming, the better you will be at it.
If you haven't fallen into homosexual behavior, don't cave into it as experimentation or otherwise. Don't allow societal confusion to become magnified by your participation in going down the wrong path. Avoid the slippery slope. If you are addicted to pornography, kick that habit.
You can love people and can live with them without expressing yourself in a confused sexual manner. If you are in a homosexual relationship, get out of it, now.
"When I came here, I experienced to an increasing degree the suffering that comes to our children and the blackness they feel inside," Kauth told the meeting. "They are taught by nearly every form of media that Christ's teachings in His Church are restrictive bars, medieval torture chambers to keep them from happiness. When they have 'broken free' I get to see their agony."
"I desire with a father's heart to protect them [from] harm and the false notions of freedom to be able to live in the true freedom which chastity brings - free to love as we were made to love. This is where Sister comes in," Fr. Kauth explained. "I heard Sister speak in the fall at St Patrick's. While I had given so many talks on this topic in so many different ways I found her approach just different enough - a new voice and the added perspective coming from a woman. I decided to bring her here."
"Sister and I are both quite aware of the biblical admonition from our Lord about what happens if one leads a little one astray and I am not fond of the mixture of millstone and water," Kauth said. "The intent is and has only been to shine so as to set them free. However to hide Christ's saving teaching is also a means to lead them astray by allowing them to be led away by another- and as you know as parents, there are many who would take your children where you do not want them to go."
"Christ is light and in Him there is no darkness. His light sets us free to love as we were made to love-in the full dignity and beauty of the sons and daughters of God. His light also exposes and that can be painful. But that same light radiates the beauty of what we were made to be and can be if we would but receive it and assist each other in love to receive it. That is why it is Good News."
"Darkness has fallen upon us with all of the attendant confusion which it brings," Kauth continued. "Our Lord can speak to this darkness just as He did in the beginning and say, let there be light."
