Evil in the Church

I strongly urge you to read Vox Cantoris' assessment of the moral evil that is active - even, sadly - at the highest levels in the Church. Vox details an ongoing rebellion by a number of bishops against the Magisterium of the Church with regards to homosexuality.

These wayward prelates need to be reminded that they no longer adhere to the toleration of an evil, as taught by the Church. These men, are, in fact, endorsing a positive evil. These wicked men are ravenous wolves who have entered the vineyard of the Lord. That such spiritual confusion - indeed evil - can reign in the minds of bishops, reminds one of the words of St. Jude: "Woe unto them, for they have gone in the way of Cain: and after the error of Balaam they have for reward poured out themselves, and have perished in the contradiction of Core". 
There are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions to be in any way similar or even remotely analogous to God's plan for marriage and family. Marriage is holy, while homosexual acts go against the natural moral law. Homosexual acts “close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved”.
Sacred Scripture condemns homosexual acts “as a serious depravity... (cf. Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10). This judgment of Scripture does not of course permit us to conclude that all those who suffer from this anomaly are personally responsible for it, but it does attest to the fact that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered”. This same moral judgment is found in many Christian writers of the first centuries and is unanimously accepted by Catholic Tradition.
Those who would move from tolerance to the legitimization of specific rights for cohabiting homosexual persons need to be reminded that the approval or legalization of evil is something far different from the toleration of evil.
